Rauch Family Sneak Peek | a day at the beach

The annual day of Photos with Jenna and Her Adorable Family finally arrived! It’s always so fun to see them and do a round of speed-catch-up, chase the GROWING kiddos around and capture some family moments. (And with a toddler, it really is a blink-or-you’ll-miss-it moment!)

We met up at a beautiful park that was attached to a beach… that definitely will be seeing me and my camera again. The perfect weather that we had requested arrived as ordered. The breeze was blowing, the sun was shining, the kids were happy. It couldn’t have been any more idyllic if we tried.

Thanks Jenna and Dan! We had a wonderful morning together and I’m sure you will love the rest of your photos.

For now, here’s your Sneak Peek…. can’t you just feel that hug coming?

What kind of location fits your story? Are you beach people? Is a garden more your speed? Or maybe you prefer funky, urban surroundings? All my portrait sessions are custom built around YOU. Let’s talk about what sparks you up and we can create some beautiful family heirlooms to show it all off.


raise your hand if you love cake | happy birthday Sebastian!

Sebastian.

A charming, energetic little smiler.

Who likes cake.

This little boy came to me - well, he snagged a ride from his parents - for his one year portraits. We had quite the time… playing with blocks, pretending to sweep, climbing stairs, sitting on chairs and stools. And then… the big finale. The Cake Smash.

Sebastian is not shy around cake. He dove right in. And loved every second of it. (Ok, so did we!)

Afterwards mom and dad literally peeled his clothes off and put him into pajamas for a great, post-sugar-rush sleep.

Happy birthday, little one!

Sneak Peek | Milwaukee couple + their BFF

Have you ever wondered what a "Power Couple" would actually look like? Well, here's your answer! 

Meet Dan and Amanda. They are quite the pair, each entrepreneurs in their own right. In fact, I would even go as far as calling them Mr. and Mrs. Milwaukee. EVERYONE seems to know them. What? You don't??? Turn to the person next to you. Do they know Dan and Amanda. See? I told you. 

Dan is THE Tall Guy of Tall Guy and a Grill and Amanda runs The Simple Home. I was completely honored when they asked me to photograph them. 

Today I'm sharing one (adorable!) shot as a little Sneak Peek into their session.

Enjoy Sneak Peek, guys! And make sure you tell Murphy that the lady with all the treats says hi. :)

Muskego Kids | Spring Family Sneak Peek

If you're following my goings-on via Facebook and Instagram, you know I've been busy... you know, signing things. (wink wink) 

But that's not the only thing keeping me busy. These kiddos had their birthday photos taken and we had SO MUCH FUN. I mean, sometimes we have fun. This time, WE HAD FUN.

We played hide and seek. We rolled in a blanket like a burrito. We pretended to take naps. We ran. We skipped. We stood like statues. We laughed. And yes, we cried. (An hour with three energetic siblings wouldn't be complete without a sniffle here and there.)

There were SO MANY shots I could have shared as a Sneak Peek for Mom. This one seemed seasonally appropriate. Enjoy!

Happy 4th of July! 

I'm thankful to live in a country where these three can express themselves and just be kids. It's a beautiful thing.
