Elm Grove Photography Studio Opening a Grand Success

Elm Grove, WI
Monday morning

Wheeeeeewwww.

That. Was. So. Much. Fun.

I want to give a GIANT THANK YOU to EVERYONE who came to my Thursday evening ribbon cutting with the Brookfield and Wauwatosa Chambers of Commerce. I was overwhelmed by all the people who walked in my doors. I still can't believe ALL OF YOU were there! But I think I know why - you secretly wanted to make sure I really had a photography studio, didn't you? haha. I do, I'm not faking you out!

And then Saturday, I was once again honored to have Local First Milwaukee perform a ribbon cutting at my Open House. We were really lucky to have GORGEOUS weather so we went outside and basked in the sunshine. 

A big lesson I learned over the two events... I need to get myself a pair of giant scissors. 

Thank you to my friends and family who stopped by on Saturday. The Wauwatosa Mayor, Kathy Ehley, visited me! I couldn't believe she took the time out of her day for little old me. 

I have SO many photos to share and there are lots of them floating around on Facebook and Instagram. Are you ready? 

Thank you to Jason Brewer for shooting photos on Thursday.... and to my own kiddo, Sam, for "second-shooting". 

Here are some moments from Saturday's Open House... however, I didn't have a personal photographer following me around that day.  :)

Stories Framed Photography | New Studio Soft Open Celebration

Hey, hey, hey! The day is finally here. 

The walls are painted. The floors are installed. The backdrops are hung. Most of the furniture and photos are in place. (The kids are back in school!) I think I'm ready to call it.... OPEN FOR BUSINESS! 

Now let me be super clear, this is a totally UNOFFICIAL opening celebration. I will be having a major extravaganza for the GRAND OPENING IN JANUARY. But I couldn't make you wait that long to come say hello. 

Consider this your New Studio Sneak Peek. 

So... c'mon over! I'll be here all day. Stop by and say hi, check out the place and see what I've been up to lately. (And why I need a nap!)

#MKEkids Tween Birthday Party | Mia is 11

Saturday night, during a break in our little snow storm, Mia turned 11. 

I was at her party and got some ADORABLE shots of Mia and her friends - school friends AND friends from her basketball team, thankyouverymuch. I can't wait to share them! However, with the holidays and winter break so soon, Mama Weber and I decided to wait on the big reveal. 

Honestly, as a fellow December birthday girl, I can totally relate to the agony of "the holidays" getting in the way of the REAL celebration. Sorry Mia. I feel you.

But here's a gorgeous little sneak peek for you... this sweet and spunky girl is ELEVEN! Happy birthday, girlfriend!
