Continuous Improvement

Stories Framed Photography | business headshot | Scott Brown

Who is your ideal client? 
A business leader who is willing to see the value that they bring through the eyes of their customers.

What is something people THINK they know about your job?
That taking a lean approach to their business is about laying people off. Lean is about helping the people that you have spend less time with wasted work and more time doing work that matters to your customers.

Name one thing you WISH people knew about your job?
If you work in continuous improvement you are never done learning and learning is very much a social enterprise! It is critical that I stay connected and continue to learn from colleagues in my field. Someone, somewhere is always finding a new approach or a variation on an approach that could apply to a unique situation. I am very fortunate in that most people who work in CI love to share and help one another!

Tell us a secret about your job. 
My best breakthroughs or ideas for solutions come to me when I step back and think about something besides CI. Sometimes it helps to take a break and have a walk or just read or listen to something that inspires you.

What is the ONE book that you think I should read RIGHT NOW?
"Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking" by Malcolm Gladwell

Oh, the places you'll go. | Milwaukee Family Session (and beyond)

The Short Family is the epitome of perfectly planned... and as relaxed and laid back as can be.

Short Family | Stories Framed Photography | Milwaukee portrait session

Mom Marlo  called me to set up their family session. Mind you, they were LITERALLY in the middle of a state-to-state job relocation. They had moved out of their home, into a temporary residence, waiting until the end of the month to move into another temporary house in another state until their house was done being built.

Take a breath, that was a lot.

Yet this Wonder Woman managed to pull off a beautifully coordinated set of outfits and - bonus for me - she had pre-scouted her own locations for the session!

I'm so impressed it hurts.

Twin sisters | high school | Milwaukee portraits

These sisters, believe it or not, are twins. I love it when twins don't look like twins. It's like they are saying, "See, you think we are the same but we are SO NOT the same."

Here are some more shots from their session... 

I really enjoyed working with this sweet family. They were so kind and fun. Maybe I can convince them to fly back to Milwaukee every time they need portraits made? Or, better yet, I would be perfectly happy to travel to them! Marlo, what do you think? ;)

Ready to book your next family session? I am currently scheduling through the 2016 summer and fall. We can even go on a tour of the Short Family Locations if you like what you see. Click the button to get started...
