Bonnie is a total saint! This gal and her adorable family booked a fall mini session LAST YEAR and because the weather got too cold, she was patient enough to wait until this fall! Seriously, I am in awe of her patience. We did the fall mini session on my farm in Franklin, WI. Her family was so sweet and I loved photographing her children. We got some amazing shots!
Livie and her family live on a private lake in Muskego, WI, so when her mom asked if we could do the session at her place I didn't hesitate to say yes. We met up prior to the session to scope out all the spots that would work for the time of day and had tons to work with. This is a mandatory step if you'd like me to try a spot of your choosing for your senior portrait session. It ensures I know where the light will be at the time of our session so that I can get the most beautiful shots possible. We used Livie's backyard, we nabbed tons of shots along the private lake, and we even stopped at a nearby park for some architectural backdrops. I love this session, check out the portraits below!
"Senior pictures were beautiful, Kelsey was warm and very organized, my daughter was comfortable, received them quickly, I highly recommend. Plan on booking her in the future for my other kids and family pictures." -Jenni W.
Who doesn't love a family portrait session with goats and kittens? Photographing my dear friend Carrie and her family was such a joy. Their farm in Sussex, WI is so rustic and beautiful, it was the perfect backdrop for family portraits. With the Bronze Package (a 20-minute session) we got so many great shots with the animals on the farm and no one got impatient or bored. I am putting it out into the universe that I would like to do more on-farm family portraits. Any other farmers out there in need?
Photographing Emily was so much fun! This vivacious and kind-hearted senior was easy to talk to, quick to smile, and full of joy. I was so excited to explore Atwater Beach for senior portraits in Milwaukee. It truly is a gorgeous spot for graduation photos and I hope to photograph more seniors here in the future. Emily did a stand-up job with her outfits - all of them represented her vibrant and warm personality without being to "busy" - plus she was comfortable in them. I loved Emily's senior portraits and I hope you do too!
I had such a fantastic time photographing Julia for her senior portraits on my farm in Franklin, WI. This gal brought some stellar outfits for her Gold Package senior portrait photography session. We started at my farm and got a ton of great shots and then finished up at Lion Legends Park just a few minutes away. Julia was so much fun to work with and I adore the photos we got. See for yourself!
Tyler was such a great senior to photograph. He and his mom were so laid back about the entire session and it was incredibly easy to get him to smile. We cracked a ton of FRIENDS jokes, talked about archery, and traipsed around Minooka Park. I love this location for senior portraits and will definitely be back for more. The big red barn, the winding paths, and all the mature trees make it a wonderful spot for posing. Tyler went with the Bronze Package, which is a simple one-outfit and one-location option that is fairly popular with the senior guys. Don't be fooled though- you get a TON of variety even within that 30 minute session. See for yourself!
It was so lovely getting the chance to photograph Jenna for her senior portraits in downtown Milwaukee. We immediately bonded because she is a theatre kid, just like I was in high school. For Jenna's senior session, she went with the Silver Package which allowed her two outfits and two locations. We walked along Water Street in Milwaukee's Historic Third Ward for one outfit, and then along Cathedral Square for her other outfit. The overcast day was a blessing so we could get beautiful perfectly exposed pictures of downtown Milwaukee as a backdrop. Thank you Jenna for such a fun senior portrait session!
My heart has officially turned to mush. Doing sweet baby Evelyn's in-home newborn portraits in Hales Corners, WI was such a treat. I love coming to parents and babies and meeting them in their home because everyone is so much more comfortable. I adored Momma Natalie's neutral color palette she chose for wardrobe (of course it helps that their home is totally gorgeous too). This little one is so lucky to have such a loving and wonderful family!
It was such an honor photographing my dear friends, Tricia and Charlie, with the newest addition to their family. Baby Alice was wide awake for her session, which can be a challenge for some photographers, but not this gal! We were able to get gorgeous photos that captured this little nugget's sparkly personality. I love all the beautiful details that Tricia put into to Alice's nursery, from the elephant to the felt flower mobile. Baby Alice is the luckiest little girl in the world because she has the absolute best parents.

I can't express how lovely it was photographing this little nugget. Cecilia and Bill are dear friends of mine, so it was an honor being able to capture this moment in their lives. Cecilia and Bill opted for the Gold Package for an in-home newborn session, which got them an hour of baby photo time with two different outfits. We tossed around the idea of having a cat-themed maternity session (JK!) but I think what we wound up with is nothing short of perfect. Evelyn is a miracle baby and she is so lucky to have these two as parents.
Hi! I'm Kelsey - cat lover, coffee drinker, and green thumb. I've been photographing people for over a decade and can't wait for you to take a peek around!
