Fall Family Photos on the Trail

I fell in love with this family at their session. The sweetest mom. The rocker-ist dad. The most doting daughter. They gel together so beautifully. A total unit of three. I loved watching them interact.

They laughed and talked and totally watched out for each other.

Here’s a peek into what I witnessed that day…

This is one of the things I like so much about photographing families: I get to experience their personalities and dynamics and interactions - both naturally and “staged”. Once in a while I’ll ask a group to “pretend to have the most interesting conversation in the world”. But then they REALLY do. (see above!)

It’s magic.

I can’t wait to share the rest of this Laura and her family’s images with them at their Reveal + Selection Appointment. I have a good feeling about this family.

Are you thinking about Fall Family Portraits? Don’t wait… run to the nearest phone and call me. Fall is quickly landing on the ground and being swept up by leaf collectors. Plus, I have very few openings remaining.

Hurry! Run don’t walk to your phone and call me. 262-366.7980


4th Annual Thanksgiving Gratitude Featured Post | Miller Kids

I usually leave these posts for my clients but this year I thought I'd share my own thoughts.

How two kids from the same parents can be so COMPLETELY different is a wonder. And you two are as beautifully different as snow and rain.

David, you are so thoughtful, kind and considerate. You are wise beyond your years, funny as can be and a joy to be around. You are like the snow: slowly and carefully drifting down, covering the land in a gentle blanket.

Sam, you, my dear, are smarter than you think you are, you are such a talented artist it blows my mind and you are sneakily funny. I could watch you work and think and create all day long. (If only you’d let me!) You are like the rain: when it rains, it pours…making the grass greener and filling up the cerulean blue oceans.

Thank you for being mine. Thank you for being you. I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love you both infinitely times a million.

xoxo

4th Annual Thanksgiving Gratitude Featured Post | McKenna

Here is a letter from one truly wonderful woman to her selfless and rising-star of a daughter. To know them is an honor.

McKenna,
On one of the hottest days on record, God blessed me with the most beautiful lil’ bundle of love I could have ever imagined. I remember looking down and you thinking how could I have had ANY part in making anything so absolutely perfect in every way!?!? You make my heart smile.
The last twenty two years have brought more memories, more giggles and yea , even some tears than I ever expected! From writing your name in permanent marker in four foot letters on your babysitters living room wall, to all but shaving your eye brows off, TWICE, to developing a love for shoes that rivals Elmelda Marcos, to your love for God, to developing a heart for service, you my love, you are a keeper.
I have watched you grow from a little rotund baby with tiny cupid bow lips, to a gangly teenager with pig-tails and a mouth full of braces to a stunning beautiful young woman with a heart for serving others. In each of these stages, I was convinced I could not love you more than I did, but lo’ and behold, my love continues to grow for you.
It is a joy watching you find your purpose in life. I am so proud of all you have done and CONTINUE to do - so proud, I could just bust. As a high school senior, you brought our community together in a jean collection project supporting survivors of sexual assault. A few years later you are working to create your own nonprofit to support survivors and are in the process of creating another powerful event at Drake University on the issue of gender based violence. Your commitment to make a difference in this world inspires me. The world needs more of you McKenna!
Your light shines so bright and I am honoured to sit in its glow. The world is a better place because you are in it. I love you more than you could ever know.
McKenna you bring me joy!
xoxo

4th Annual Thanksgiving Gratitude Featured Post | Rauch Brothers

Welcome back to another edition of the Stories Framed Photography Gratitude Featured Posts! This is the time when YOU share YOUR words about your children, your family, your loves. 

Here are two adorable boys who are VERY loved by their amazing mom.

I am so grateful, and thankful for my boys.  Matthew, my five year old, excuse me, five and a half year old (he likes to remind me), is so sweet, so funny, and seriously the best big brother anyone could hope for. He shows so much love and protectiveness to his little brother, my 10 month old, Evan. Evan is so full of curiousity, and his smile just brightens my day.  He idolizes his big brother and it’s pure joy watching them interact.  They are both my little miracles and I love them more than words could ever convey.

Shorewood Family Photography | Sneak Peek for the Andersons

It's Monday and I thought you could use a little pick-me-up.

Ironically, the day we shot these portraits, it was a grey, gloomy and very rainy and soggy day. Ha. As if that will stop me. My camera and I repel water and gloom in a single bound. 

This is the beautiful Anaya. I'm going to stop right there so you can stare at her portrait and take it all in. Ah, this girl.

Breath-taking, right? Oh, just wait. This isn't even the tip of the iceberg... I can't wait to share the entire gallery with her mom. 


Are you holding back on booking your family portraits because of WEATHER? Don't wait too long or heat and rain will pale in comparison to that S-word.... snow. Yowsa! I said it. 

Now booking through the rest of 2016... yes, that includes when we might have "S" on the ground.
