Fall Mini Family Session in Brookfield, Wisconsin


Mini sessions have been in full force this fall, every other Sunday night! Thankfully we've had beautiful weather, light and fun families! Families like these make my job sooo easy.

It's also been great seeing past families again, 95% of my mini sessions this year are repeat clients, so watching their families expand and grow is so much fun!

In-Home, Lifestyle Newborn Photography in Erin, WI


I was so honored to capture this family in their home with their second born child, baby Emmett last year - and I was so honored to photograph them again when they brought baby Ella home. The story these images tell doesn't start with Emmett or Ella though, they begin with Madelyn, Emmett's big sister, who was born 15 weeks too early and lived an amazing five weeks before passing away. Even with only five weeks, Madelyn has made an impact on so many, so we included her in the photographs below.

You'll see two bears, one bear weighs exactly her weight, another is made from a onesie she wore before passing away. Also, the bracelet that mama wears has Madelyn's bow on it and her pretty little face was present in every room we went in a frame. 

Emmett, Ella & Madelyn's parents are incredibly brave and are amazing parents <3 This family is so beautiful and I'm so glad I could capture their joy again.

Love to watch my families grow! I first photographed this sweet family when Charlotte was just six months old (she was such a little doll!), then we celebrated her first birthday with a milestone session, and now documenting adding a baby boy to their family! I'm so sad I won't be able to photograph their new little guy since our little guy will be arriving within days of each other. <3

Fresh 48 Newborn Photography at Elmbrook Hospital


Welcome to the world baby Henry! There's nothing quite like those first few days with a fresh new baby in the hospital. After I had my first, you crave that new-ness, so I LOVE doing fresh 48 hospital sessions for families so they forever have these moments saved. I know not every mama feels comfortable getting photographed SO soon after giving birth, but there is so much beauty in your new mama roll and it's worth being captured - you won't regret it!

Baby Henry was the perfect addition to this new family of four! Big sister was so excited to meet him and was so loving (hopefully those feelings have carried on) and loved laying on the kisses. He also had the sweetest little glances at mama that made my heart burst!

Documenting these moments have me incredibly excited to add a sweet little boy to our crew in just a few days <3

Family Beach Mini Session at Pewaukee Lake


Beach + Sunset + Cute Family of Three = LOVE! It was so great to see this family again, after I shot Nora's newborn photos last year. She had just turned one year old and was mastering walking. So crazy how fast a year can fly by!

There's a little bit more "pressure to perform" when you know the family you are photographing! I met Katie and her kids last fall after we set-up a play date. We both were local photographers in Pewaukee and had girls similar in age. Em and Lilly became instant friends and so did Katie and I. It's been so great to share ideas and location scout with her. So thankful she trusts me to capture some sweet moments for her family - it's always a treat to get in the frame when you are a photographer and usually the one behind the camera!

This sweet family of five is growing by one more come December!

Jamie is a fellow Pewaukee photographer and we've gotten to know each other over the past year. It's been great making community rather than compeition with some of the other local mom photographers in the area. It's fun to bounce ideas off of each other, share location ideas, and for referrals when one of us is swamped. 

So fun to do this family session for them as the cherish these moments of a family of five before they become six!

I met up with this gorgeous mama to be at sunset at Pewaukee Beach in early June! It was such a beautiful night documenting her pregnancy with her partner. I love when clients are willing to get into the water at the end of their sessions - those are always my favorites shots!

Can't wait to see her become a mama to a handsome baby boy in August!

Spring Family Mini Session in Waukesha, WI


Love seeing repeat clients again! Last spring I photographed this super sweet family while baby boy was still in mama's tummy! So fun to see them as a family of four, especially since we'll be welcoming a baby boy into our family in a few days!

Also, isn't the vintage tricycle they brought so much fun! I love when families bring special things to incorporate into their sessions, especially if they have meaning <3

It's a GIRL! You may remember this sweet family from a lifestyle in-home maternity session a few months ago. The little girls were hoping for another sister and big brother was hoping to even things out with a brother. Sorry buddy!

Sweet baby Alisa fit right in with this adorable family, her older siblings can't get enough of her. For a portion of their session big brother was at school and dad at work, so we made sure to capture some sweet moments of mama and her little girls <3

Sweet little Lenny turned ONE! She had such a spunky little personality, loved to laugh and stick out her tongue at us, but was the sweetest! Even grandma came along to the photoshoot since she's a huge part of Soleen's life! So fun capturing these moments for this family.

Baby Navy

Lifestyle Newborn Photography Session | Floral Nursery


Winter usually means not too many sessions happen outside besides a few snow/Christmas-y photo sessions, but that means ALL.THE.NEWBORN sessions and I love getting to document these special moments of welcoming a new family member <3

Baby Navy was as sweet as can be and slept almost her entire photo session. And I was also in love with her gorgeous floral, light & airy, nursery complete with floral wallpaper as a feature wall. Her parents couldn't be more in love with their precious gift (even big brother Dragon, the pug, loved to be near her), and baby Navy was so teeny tiny held in her daddy's arms!

Sweet baby Quinn was nice and cozy when I arrived for his session and slept like a dream for the first part of his session next to a warm fire. When he woke up he was full of those adorable baby yawns and beautiful eyes watching our every move. 

I love being able to photograph growing families in their home, it'll be fun for this family to look back on these in the years to come and see how tiny baby Quinn was and bring them back to those moments in their home together where they experience lots of firsts.

The Neumann invited me to their gorgeous home to document the last days of their family of five, before they become six. Baby Neumann will be a surprise, as the girls are hoping for another girl, and little man is hoping for a brother!

I love incorporating some daily activities into lifestyle sessions, so for this family, tea parties, dolls, and even shooting some hoops on their basketball court! Can't wait to meet their new addition in a few months!

This little man has stolen the hearts of his parents, doggy, and grandma (who happened to be helping out while we did Dillon's session). His family was so excited for his arrival as so much of his nursery was handmade with so much love. We made sure to capture some fun memories such as the quilt that was specially made as well as a book Andrea's daddy read to her when she was a baby, now reading to her own little guy.

Baby Dillon you are so loved <3

Winter Family Photography in Lisbon, WI


Winter is here, and before we got covered in feet of snow, we had this beautiful sunny day to capture the Gutkowski family. You may remember them from a maternity session last February. 

This time they brought their new son Casey (who has gorgeous eyes) and their new kitten Peach. Bringing a kitten to a session was a new one for me, but how cute was this little guy snuggled up with big brother <3

Winter Snow Family Mini Session in Sussex, WI


When you schedule holiday mini sessions a few months ahead of time and pray there is snow, and it actually happens to snow during your sessions and covers the trees and grass with a beautiful blanket of fresh snow, you know you hit the jackpot!

Despite getting super wet, being a little chilly, this family had so much fun in the snow with me while I captured some sweet moments for them! Also, I loved their bright and colorful outfits that contrasted with the white snow everywhere <3

Fall Mini Session in Waukesha, WI


A day full of fall mini sessions (10 to be exact) and each family had me laughing non-stop! It kept me going and forgetting how exhausted I was getting! The day brought all sorts of weather/lighting, beginning with some drizzle, then fog, cloudy, a little bit of sunshine and then ending with clouds again.

Here's a favorite from a family of four, with two sweet little girls who brought their silly personalities...
