It's officially summertime on the homestead! I love taking a moment to capture all the breathtaking things growing this time of year on our property in Franklin, WI. When I'm not photographing Milwaukee area weddings, families, and seniors - I'm outside working on our land. The chickens also love this time of year because they get lots of garden weeds as treats. This was our first year planting a three sisters garden (corn, beans, and squash like the Native Americans planted) and I dare say it is doing fabulously! From our pastured poultry to the organic garden coming into its own, there is so much beauty to take in. See for yourself!

Having Michelle and her adorable family over last week was such a great time. We did a family portrait mini session on my property here in Franklin, WI and got some fabulous shots! The mini session is amazing for kidlets under 4 years old because usually 20 minutes is all their attention spans can take. The mini session is a tried and true way of getting amazing family portraits when you are on a budget. I use four "stations" on my property that have cute little props or are just plain gorgeous thanks to mother nature. We spend about five minutes at every station, which keeps things active and moving for your little one. I like to get a little bit of everything - shots of you and your partner, shots of just your kidlets, and pictures of everyone together. I couldn't be happier with the way this mini session turned out and I can't believe I only have a few left this season!!
"We did a family mini session with Kelsey and the experience was wonderful! We received our pictures back quickly and she was able to even get some great shots of our almost 2 year old who didn't exactly want to cooperate during it ;) Highly recommended!" -Michelle H.
I loved working with Michelle and her adorable family on this mini session. With all my mini sessions families come to my five acre property in Franklin, WI and we do a short and sweet photo shoot. It's an awesome way to photograph when you have kids under 5 years old because attention spans don't run out and smiles stay genuine! I absolutely love photographing families in May and June since everything is so green and gorgeous. I'm sad mini session season is almost over, but doing family portraits for all these Milwaukee families has been such a joy!
Brooqlenn was my VERY FIRST senior portrait session of the 2018 graduating class for the Milwaukee area and it set the bar high. We started her 90 minute Gold Package Session here on my property in Franklin. With the Gold Package you get to wear three outfits, so Brooqlenn decided to do two outfits here and then stay in her second outfit as we headed downtown. That way she could could get some awesome shots in the second outfit with the urban backdrop before changing into her final outfit. I love that we got to incorporate both rustic AND urban with this Gold Package Session. While we were downtown a huge storm starting rolling in, but we weren't afraid! We just kept on photographing and took advantage of the amazing color of the sky. See for yourself below!
