Cooper's Senior Portrait Sneak Peek | Earth, Wind + Snow

Last weekend, Cooper and his mom, Gretchen, came to the studio for some indoor senior photos. We did an entire set there. Dry, warm and un-ruffled.

But Cooper really wanted to go outside. Why not? I was game - my equipment would have to be minimal, but I could definitely make it work. (And my hair/mop was bound to be in a ponytail anyway!)

If you recall, you know the strange combination of weather we experienced. On the way to our location, while the winds were already peaking at 40 MPH, it then started to rain.

Then… it started to snow.

THEN it was just a smooshed up version of rain and snow. Blowing right into Cooper’s face.

With that being said, I am thoroughly impressed with Cooper’s Academy Award-level acting skills. This Sneak Peek I’m sharing is really great. And he had WEATHER coming at him. You’d never know it — look at him!

BRAVO! Way to go Cooper!

Tosa East HS class of 2019 | (another) Jack's Sneak Peek

This is my second Jack H. of the 2019 senior season. Really!

This Jack is a sweet, quiet kid. He was so agreeable… I could have asked him to stand in the middle of a busy street and I think he would have agreed. (Oh, but I wouldn’t!)

Jack and his mom, Wendy, wanted some traditional spots in Tosa as the setting for his senior portraits. This is one of them… can you guess where we were?


Do you still need to get on the Senior Photo Train? I know your stomach just leaped into your throat. But I promise you - it’s NOT TOO LATE! The Wauwatosa high schools have yearbook deadline of NOVEMBER 9. Some of the private schools are as late as January. See? We’re good!

Here - I’ll make it easy for you. Fill out these answers…

Tosa East HS class of 2019 | Mary's Sneak Peek

I have a special announcement from the Editor-in-Chief of the Wauwatosa East High School yearbook. Mary is her name and she wants to remind you to get your senior photos done and to PLEASE submit them on time!

Just kidding.

I mean, you should submit your photo on time, but Mary didn't actually tell me to pass on that message.

But I really did photograph this adorable yearbook editor. She and her mom were completely wonderful and warm and I felt like I was hanging out with old friends. (No, I didn't just call you old!)

Here is Mary's gorgeous Sneak Peek from her photo session. 


Do you need a suggestion for someone who can help with your senior portraits? I think I might know a photographer... 

Sneak Peek for Adam | Tosa East HS class of 2019

This is where I tell you this session went off seamlessly. 

I didn't get lost.

I didn't forget any equipment.

The gear I had with me worked perfectly. 

No assistants fell down a hill.

No mosquitos were eating us alive.

But the thing is, when you see this one single photo of Adam, a Tosa East class of 2019 senior, all of those behind-the-scenes things that NEVER HAPPENED will be erased from your mind. 

The rest of his portraits turned out just as flawlessly. (But you'll have to wait a bit to see more.)


This is why you hire a professional photographer for your senior portraits. I made it work seamlessly, even with all those things *that didn't happen.*

Tosa East HS Senior Portraits | class of 2017 | Sydney

Tomorrow is the B-I-G day at Wauwatosa East High School and this girl is SO ready.


World, meet the lovely Sydney, proud graduate of the class of 2017. Sydney, meet the world.

At the beginning of her session she admitted to being a little nervous. By the time I took the first test shot, she was already laughing and having fun. She may have been anxious for her photo shoot but it sure didn't show! This girl was on fire.

Something random about Sydney... she told me her favorite teacher was Mrs. Carus from 5th grade. As a former teacher, I would be so honored if someone actually liked me. And to name me a favorite teacher? Wow. So Mrs. Carus if you're out there, way to go!

What else? Sydney has been to Disney World, New York and Hollywood with her dance team. Her favorite color is blue. Aaaand....

...She will be going to University of Wisconsin at La Crosse in the fall! 

Well. That is if I let her go. (Right mom?!?)


Congratulations Sydney! Go get em at La Cross! You'll do great!
