M. Family Milwaukee Family Session // Doctor's Park, Fox Point, Wisconsin
This session makes me smile ear to ear, not only because little Ms. Aria is already TWO years old but also because this sweet little girl had a big announcement. She is going to be a big sister!! I love when clients share these little secrets with me. I am beyond thrilled for them and can't wait to meet the newest member of their family in May. Yay!
M. Family Milwaukee Newborn Lifestyle Photography // Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin
Four boys! Now that is one FULL household! I had such a great time photographing the M. family in their beautiful home in Whitefish Bay. Big brothers showered little Preston with kisses and took turns holding him. Preston was totally content sleeping and yawning. I love it when they are so little and sleep all the time! Plus newborn yawns always put a smile on my face. It's perfection. Thank you to the M.Family for a wonderful laid back session!
T. Family Milwaukee Family Photography // Klode Park, Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin
Oh how I love this little family! Christine and I met each other in college where we instantly became friends. Through all of our years of friendship, I can honestly say that Christine is one of the most caring and kind people I have ever met. She is an outstanding mom, a strong beautiful woman and an amazing friend. I was so happy for her and Todd as they welcomed their daughter Charlotte (who is already one!) into the world and even more excited to have them back in Milwaukee. Thank you for an amazing session and your friendship! You guys are the best!
There once was a guy, who loved his trusty Adidas basketball shoes.During his 18 years of playing professional basketball he has worn the same model of basketball shoes.The amazing Adidas Superstar 2G TC!
Even though the shoes have become discontinued years ago he has still managed to get a hold of a pair (or a couple) each year he played. Every off-season he would scour the internet and find eager sellers of their forgotten basketball shoes. Anytime he would win the bidding war on eBay, he would celebrate and know that he wouldn't have to go through the pain and tribulation of finding a new model of shoes. And don't get me wrong, he has tried all different kinds of newer models but nothing ever compared to his favorite trusty Superstar model.
So naturally when it came time to plan his wedding to his longtime girlfriend (also a basketball player), they wanted to surprise their guests with a unique wedding favor. And what did they decide? The shoes! They obviously couldn't find enough pairs for everyone, so they needed a new idea.
They hired a 3D graphic printer to design his beloved shoe. After a couple of test rounds of choosing the size and material, they settled on making a mini replica version and made it into a keychain. Adidas would be impressed! Not only did the shoe look just like the Superstar 2G TC model, but Victor and Cristina went a step further and designed a unique Adidas box with Victor's caricature and signature. Talk about unique! Then they spent hours taping on the Adidas three stripes on 200 little boxes and putting their little key chain shoe in them. It was the most memorable and unique wedding gift ever! It will surely end up on our Christmas tree every year!
S. Family Milwaukee Extended Family Session // Sussex, Wisconsin
I had the pleasure of photographing the S. Family on their beautiful property in Sussex, Wisconsin. The sun was in the perfect spot, the kids were playing and even the puppy got in on a couple of photos. Thank you for the wonderful session and your hospitality afterwards!
H. Family Milwaukee Maternity Photography // Doctors Park // Fox Point, Wisconsin
Oh this session! Where do I begin. It was beautiful, dreamy, fun and spontaneous!
I was instantly in awe of this beautiful family when I met them at Doctor's Park in Fox Point. They were dressed to a tee, smiling ear to ear and were some of the most kind people I had the pleasure of working with. Truly beautiful inside and out! Soon to be mom, Damaris looked absolutely STUNNING in her Sew Trendy dress. We had a great time as we talked about their growing family, their recent move to Wisconsin and of course, taking on those frigit Wisconsin winters. Damaris, Sam and Ivan were a pleasure to work with. I am truly honored to have been able to capture this special time in their lives. I wish them nothing but the best in their new Wisconsin home and I can't wait to meet their new little bundle of joy in a couple of weeks.
I moved to the United States when I was nine years old. I have amazing parents that sacrificed their lives in search of something better. Something better that our native country didn't provide. They raised me to be a strong and independent woman. To be proud of my new culture and to be deeply rooted in my European one. Because of their sacrifices I was able to graduate from Marquette University and open my own business. Because of how they raised me I felt comfortable moving across the world after graduation. Living as an expat for seven years in five countries was an eye opening and humbling experience. Though our country isn't without it's issues, America has given me a lot.
So this election year I voted.
I voted as an immigrant. I voted as a small business owner. I voted as a mother. I voted as an American. But most of all, I voted. And that's what it's all about. That's what America is all about. It's tolerant and accepting. So no matter what your political views are, go vote. Make a difference and be proud of it.

Please meet identical twins, Aksel + Owen! How adorable are they. Along with their parents they put up with the pesky mosquitos during our session at Rice Lake Park Preserve in Centerville, Minnesota. They boys enjoyed kisses from mom and cuddles from dad.
