Cooper's Senior Portrait Sneak Peek | Earth, Wind + Snow

Last weekend, Cooper and his mom, Gretchen, came to the studio for some indoor senior photos. We did an entire set there. Dry, warm and un-ruffled.

But Cooper really wanted to go outside. Why not? I was game - my equipment would have to be minimal, but I could definitely make it work. (And my hair/mop was bound to be in a ponytail anyway!)

If you recall, you know the strange combination of weather we experienced. On the way to our location, while the winds were already peaking at 40 MPH, it then started to rain.

Then… it started to snow.

THEN it was just a smooshed up version of rain and snow. Blowing right into Cooper’s face.

With that being said, I am thoroughly impressed with Cooper’s Academy Award-level acting skills. This Sneak Peek I’m sharing is really great. And he had WEATHER coming at him. You’d never know it — look at him!

BRAVO! Way to go Cooper!

Tosa East HS class of 2019 | (another) Jack's Sneak Peek

This is my second Jack H. of the 2019 senior season. Really!

This Jack is a sweet, quiet kid. He was so agreeable… I could have asked him to stand in the middle of a busy street and I think he would have agreed. (Oh, but I wouldn’t!)

Jack and his mom, Wendy, wanted some traditional spots in Tosa as the setting for his senior portraits. This is one of them… can you guess where we were?

Senior Portrait Sneak Peek | Brian from Tosa West class of 2019

Here he is… Mr. Brian Dunn.

I can’t tell you how much fun I had with Brian and his mom, Bridget.

Really, I can’t. It would sound like I was making it up. We were laughing, making jokes chatting like long lost friends and just having the time of our lives.

See? Now YOU want to have a session like Brian’s. And since I don’t have a TON of openings left this fall, I don’t want to leave you out and make anyone feel that sinking FOMO feeling.

(To be safe… book your family session TODAY and see if you can still get on the schedule.)

In the meantime, here is Brian’s Sneak Peek from his senior photo session.

Hope you like it, Dunn family!

Tosa West HS senior photos | Kate + class of 2019

Nay, nay. We are NOT done with the senior portraits.

Today I present to you a Sneak Peek from this weekend’s session with Kate.

Kate is a senior at Wauwatosa West High School and - what d’ya know - she’s one of the yearbook editors!

If you’re new to the blog, (welcome!) I’ve had the privilege of photographing not one… not two but THREE yearbook editors for their senior portraits. Why does this matter?

Well, the truth is, it might not matter.

But to me it does. Something you may not know about me is that I was the loyal assistant to the editor of my own high school yearbook. I spent many late nights at my friend Donna’s house putting the book together… by hand. See, back in the day we hand cut articles, pasted photos and layed out the entire book on - what’s that stuff? - PAPER.

I know, I know. But what can I say? Paper was a big deal back then.

So, enough reminiscing. Let’s get on with it!

Ladies and gentlemen, I hope you’re sitting down. Kate is an absolute stunner.

Do you still need your senior portraits? I have limited number of openings remaining. But… I DO have some openings. Let’s get your session booked PRONTO.


Tosa West HS class of 2019 | Haisam's Sneak Peek

Just when you think I’m done with senior portraits…. I’m back!

Here is another fantastic Tosa West class of 2019 senior. This is Haisam.

He and his mom came into the studio for his photo shoot. While we did some AMAZING studio shots (I’m saving those for their Reveal + Selection Meeting!) this image really speaks volumes about Haisam and his laid back personality.

He was a pleasure to work with and really, was so comfortable and relaxed. I can’t wait to share the rest of his session.
