the Best Family | Part 2 | Milwaukee Family Photographer

Part two of this session brought us to Anne’s backyard at the home where Kaite, Amy, and Laurie grew up. I always find photo shoots at childhood homes to be really special and this one was no different. Laurie and her husband were in town for just a short time before heading off on a big move overseas, Amy and her family had made the hour long drive up to Mequon for the day, and Kaite and Chad’s kids appeared as content as ever to have all their cousins together under grandma’s roof.  As soon as our session was over, the smell of chili was in the air, comfy clothes abound, some kids snuggled on the couch while others were playing and bouncing from room to room….it was the recipe for a perfect family Sunday funday.

Hello Eliana | Milwaukee Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

After a two part session with her extended family, I had the opportunity to shoot photos of sweet little Eliana and her parents in a more private setting upstairs. We took some time to capture Eliana’s feeding, something I never did with my own children and I have always wished that I had some of those truly special and intimate moments of breastfeeding on film to treasure for years to come . Next we spent some time just hanging out and documenting some sweet moments of Eliana with her mama and daddy…taking note of those tiny toes, dimpled hands and squishy legs that one day will grow and change, leaving only a hint of her itty bitty baby features. It was truly a lovely morning spent documenting these treasured moments for this beautiful family. Images like these remind me why I feel so blessed to be doing something I love so much… and to be able to share that gift with others is something truly remarkable. Laurie and Anson, good luck on your next adventure overseas. I really hope we will meet again one day.

the Best Family | Part 1 | Milwaukee Family Photographer

It had been three years since I’d had the pleasure of photographing this big, beautiful family, and WOW, what a lovely fall day it turned out to be. We started in Thiensville Village Park for part one of their two part session. When we arrived, I found this beautiful bridge, which was the perfect backdrop for this lovely family. Could they be any more gorgeous?

Stay tuned for part two…

Makayla | Class of 2018 | Shorewood High School Senior Photographer

Photographing this beautiful girl for her senior portraits was so special to me for so many reasons. It was as if two of my worlds were colliding in the most magical way and it simply made me so happy and honored to be able to capture this lovely lady on the front lawn of Shorewood High School, where she attends school and plays basketball and where just three years ago, hundreds gathered with candles and music when the district honored my husband, Mark Harris. You see, Makayla is one of three students who have been accepted into the Mark Harris Fellowship Program and she will be one of our first graduates of the program. She is already making us so proud and we can’t wait to see where life takes her.

Brandon | Class of 2018 | University School of Milwaukee

I met Brandon a few weeks ago at Doctor’s Park for his senior portrait session. Brandon is a senior at USM and after talking to him throughout our session, it is clear he is a really great kid. He is looking forward to going off to school next year to study business. I’m looking forward to hearing where life takes him. Best wishes, Brandon!
