Sneak Peek for the Rauch Family | Cute x 2

This family, oh how I love them! We spent a beautiful "fall" day (read: a day hotter than the actual summer) at the park. This time, however, things were a little different.

This is Matty. I have watched this boy grow into the nutty little ham he is. So you're wondering what's different about him?

He's a big brother now! This is the super-duper adorable Evan, their newest, sweetest addition. 

I can't wait to share more from this beautiful family. Until then, enjoy this little Sneak Peek.

What is something people THINK they know about your job?
Often people associate a Recruiter with interviewing and hiring - that is the interface portion of the role.  What people often do not see is the high level of strategic planning, marketing, public relations, project management and critical thinking skills that a Recruiter uses to be successful. 

Name one thing you WISH people knew about your job?
It takes a great deal of highly tuned communication skills and understanding of human behavior to match a new employee with the expectations of a hiring manager.

Marquette University HS Senior Portraits | Class of 2018 | Sneak Peek for Joe

Last week I posted on Instagram a pre-sneak peek from the back of my camera. In the caption I wrote about this boy - let's call him "Joe" - and how challenging he was to make laugh. 

I need to backtrack a bit.

See, the thing is, Joe (his real name, actually) is the nicest kid you'll meet. He's smart, athletic and soft-spoken. He has an amazing and bright smile.

But he just wouldn't laugh... even with his crazy mom literally doing a jig. The ha-ha was a no-go.

And before you ask, I did try a few of my LEGENDARY jokes on him. Nope. Not even a crack. Heck, I would have even been happy with an eye-roll. 

Before you get all down on the kid, I do need to tell you this: Joe did a GREAT job. He smiled on cue. He moved his arms, legs, face, nose whatever I asked, just how I asked it. He had a great selection of outfits and locations picked out. I even got the sense that - deep down, quite possibly when he's not in front of a camera - he has a great sense of humor.

So, Joe, here's your senior portrait Sneak Peek. If you know Joe you'll agree: this look is SO JOE. 


It's not too late. You may think you lost your chance for AMAZING senior portraits, but that's just not true. Fill out this form and I will wave my magic wand. Photos, you shall have!
