Sam decided to go with my five acre property here in Franklin, WI for his senior portrait session. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day with all the storms that have been coming through the Milwaukee area this month! Sam had just gotten back from a whirlwind trip of Europe that was done through his high school, Pius XI, and I was SO JEALOUS. I've had the chance to go to Rome post-graduation, but my high school never set anything up like that for us as students. Working with Sam was such a treat and I love the edits they chose - see for yourself below!
Photographing Emily's senior portraits in downtown Milwaukee was such a treat. I love when I get to meet both parents too! Emily decided to go with the Cathedral Square area and the Historic Third Ward for her senior pictures. Both of these spots are awesome for senior photography because there are so many adorable nooks and crannies for posing. Another awesome aspect of working with Emily was that she incorporated her love of dancing into the photo shoot. We had point shoes, tap shoes, leaps, and kicks! Collaborating with her and her parents on fun moves was such a blast. Take a look for yourself!
Working with Mindy on this mini child portrait and smash cake session was an absolute blast. Her boys had tons of energy and she came with a bunch of cute ideas - a photographer's dream! I felt so bad because these cuties posed with their shirts off and were getting eaten alive by mosquitos, but they braved it and we got some adorable smiles. Mindy told me that this little red wagon has been used for each of the boys' baby portraits, so photographing baby Harrison in it with his brothers was totally special. Baby Harrison then did a smash cake session and kept trying to "share" some with his momma. Mindy would have to repeatedly say, "Mmmm thank you!" to get Harrison to go back to eating. It was so cute!
When I think of Wonder Woman I think of the Franklin High School Dance Team. These girls are so fierce, strong, talented, and kind. Gal Gadot has got nothing on this Wisconsin group of high school girls! One of the dance moms, Wendy, was so wonderful in setting up the photography session with the high school - I couldn't have asked for a better coordinator. We lucked out and got a nice cloudy morning, which is perfect for a football field with ZERO shade in the summer. We started our photography shoot at the high school and then did the second half of the shoot on my property here in Franklin, WI. The girls loved our many chickens and even asked to pet one, which totally made my day! See the last set of pictures taken by one of the moms to check out that adorable moment...
