Navy at One Year

Navy at One Year

One Year Milestone Photo Session in Waukesha


Love love love when I get to see my newborn clients all grown up (well, as grown up as you can be at one years old). I had the honor of capturing this family of three when Navy was just born, along with their pup named Dragon. And luckily we had a 50 degree day in March and was able to celebrate her turning one years old at Retzer Nature Center.

At one years old, I'd say Navy loves clapping, kisses from mama, and giving hugs to daddy - sounds like most one year olds I've met ;)

Barrett at 7 Months

Lifestyle Milestone Baby Session in Oconomowoc


The greatest complement I receive is when people invite me back into their lives to document milestone after milestone, it means they truly love the moments I capture for them. I first met this sweet family documenting big sister at 7 months old, then again at one year, then again when mama was pregnant with this little guy, then fall family photos and now AGAIN for little Barrett's 7 month milestone.

How CUTE is this little guy, his family is obsessed with him and I think these images clearly show that. And one of the other greatest parts of this "job" that I have is seeing those memories plastered all over their walls in their homes - this mama made sure I saw her new gallery wall in her kitchen which was filled with moments from our sessions. Seriously the best <3

Baby Rowan

In-Home Lifestyle Newborn Photography in Tosa


Beautiful baby Rowan was born shortly before Christmas! I'm not sure what can make the holidays more exciting than a brand new baby! I love lifestyle in-home newborn sessions because we can capture and remember the exact time of the year they brought their sweet baby girl home, and all the crazy cold days to follow where they stayed home and snuggled forever <3

We also made sure to capture some special moments by their Christmas tree in their living room, but all the gray, whites and floral prints in her nursery and home, made my light and airy heart burst.

Home Lifestyle Family Photography in Pewaukee


When the weather turns cold (or even in the summertime), I love to head inside client's homes to photograph them where they spend most of their days. There's something so fun and memorable about having your home be the backdrop to your photos. We'll be able to capture some of you and your families favorite activities and they'll some day love to look back at what their home used to look like <3

Loved capturing sweet little Quinn in her Pewaukee home with her parents and puppy Lola!

Fall Family Photography in Delafield, Wisconsin


One of my absolute favorite parts about photography is getting to meet awesome and sweet families, become friends with them and then watch and document how their family grows. This family I've photographed more than others (well besides my own), you may remember Charlotte at six months, Charlotte at one year, then when they were expecting sweet Barrett, and now as a family of four <3

We ended up having our baby boys just days apart, and it's been fun to have another mama to share motherhood with, as well as capture these sweet, but fleeting moments. I'm always so honored when clients pick me to share these moments with them.

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!

Fall Family Mini Session in Brookfield, Wisconsin


Many times when I photograph families, I've never met them before and I slowly learn about their family and what makes them unique. But this family I've had the honor of becoming friends with them over the past few years. They are the kindest people with the biggest hearts. They choose to live outside their comfort zones to make a place for kids in foster care to call home and then love them like crazy.  So glad I could capture their crazy in love family this fall <3

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

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!

Family Photography in Brookfield, Wisconsin


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!

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

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.

Waiting for Baby Neumann

Hartland Lifestyle Maternity & Family Photography


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!

Baby Dillon

Lifestyle In-Home Newborn Photography in Milwaukee


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...

While typically my fall schedule is filled with outdoor family sessions documenting the changing colors, it was a fun change of pace to capture this new family of four in October. Baby Caleb was welcomed into such a loving family and home, little sister Nora was pretty excited to have a little brother as you'll see below! And issn't his little woodland nursery adorable? 

*You may recognize this family from this winter sledding family session from 2015 :)

You may remember Savannah's parents a few months ago, when we met at Frame Park Botanical Gardens for maternity photos. Savannah made her appearance and I met up with this sweet family to capture their growing family. And can we just talk about how cute she is and all of her hair!

Halloween was just around the corner too - so we made sure to try on her "The Hungry Caterpillar" costume too.
