Mini Sessions

Whitewater Senior Portraits | Sneak Peek with Dylan | class of 2018

I have joked with other families and moms that I have direct line to the guy upstairs who makes all weather-related decisions affecting our plans to be outside.

Argh. I must be off my game.

We had to reschedule Dylan's senior portrait session THREE times. THREE! Rain, rain go away INDEED.

However, it's safe to say that it was DEFINITELY worth the wait. Maybe the third time really is a charm?

Here's a teeny little Sneak Peek of Dylan's RAIN-FREE senior portrait session. 


I can't wait to share the rest! But for now you'll will have to wait... for a rainy day? 

Have you been putting off scheduling your senior portraits? Procrastinate no more! Just fill out the info below and I will wave my magic wand and make things happen.

New Berlin Child Photographer | Birthday Club Sneak Peek

It was Oliver's second birthday! Hooray!

Oliver wasn't having it. That's ok. The back of his head is ADORABLE. 

Oliver wasn't having it. That's ok. The back of his head is ADORABLE. 

Oliver's mom signed him up for Stories Framed Photography's Birthday Club. 


Because at two years old, Ollie's a little too young to sign himself up. 

(^^I am so, so sorry. It's Monday.)


So... if you aren't familiar with the Birthday Club, it's a brand new EXCLUSIVE benefit for my portrait clients. How does it work?

Once you've had your portrait session, you will get an invitation to sign up any and all of your kiddos for the Birthday Club. Then, the month of their birthdays you will receive the official invitation to come in to the studio for their mini session.


It's fun, super easy and makes for a great birthday tradition. (Plus a shoe-in for a gift for grandma!)

If you are a past client and want more information about the SFP Birthday Club, fill out this form:

The birthday sessions are quick mini shoots so we can catch those kids... quick, before they grow up. Because... look at that face!

Happy birthday, Ollie!


Wauwatosa Edition of Vanity Fair Magazine | the Keenan sisters

These three sisters are so easy going, laid-back and, I think this goes without saying, drop-dead gorgeous. I am in love with their session and can't wait to show Mama Keenan. (I may sound like I'm repeating myself since I say that every single year. Too bad. It's true.)

This shot? It ended up looking like it should be on the cover of Vanity Fair Magazine.

I'm at a loss for words...

I think what I want to say is, "omg." or perhaps, "get these girls an agent."

Sneak Peek Alert! Beautiful Fall Family Mini Sessions

Have I ever mentioned that my darling husband and I got married INDOORS? Aside from seasonal allergies and the massive amounts of heat we could experience in August, we REALLY didn't want to stress out about the weather. 

And it's a good thing - the day of our wedding, there were MASSIVE storms flooding streets, downing power lines and even forcing some of our guests to miss our wedding to make sure their homes didn't flood. Plus! Ironic twist! There was also a hurricane headed directly toward our honeymoon destination. (It missed.) 

Indoors. That's THE place to be. (Said the city Girl.)

Why do I bring this up? Because I'm a basket case when it comes to planning outdoor events. And this year, because I apparently like to live on the edge, I decided to schedule OUTDOOR Mini Sessions. An entire day filled with beautiful autumnal backgrounds, cute kids, handsome parents... all we needed was the perfect fall weather. That's not asking much, is it, Mother Nature?

Guess what?

The rain ended early. The clouds parted. Fall shined down on us and we made some beautiful portraits. I now pronounce you... photographed.

Wauwatosa Family Portraits | McNair Mini Sneak Peek

There is something you need to know about children. They are fascinated by the most basic of things... like leaves on the ground and playing peek-a-boo behind a tree and... my light. 

It took a single moment for Alistair to relax in front of the camera. And all it took was my light flashing. I can do that! 

This quiet little Sneak Peek of the McNair Three was one shot before he let go of mom and dad, one frame before he became 99% comfortable with me and my giant camera. 

Just wait till you see the rest...
