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?
Cassi found me first through our farm stand in Franklin, WI - she is one of our best egg customers! Her and her son, Miles, stop by and pick up four dozen eggs nearly every week. I was overjoyed when she contacted me to do family portraits. We kept things super low-maintenance for family portraits with a mini session. 20 minutes is usually all little kids can give us before they get bored or too rambunctious. Taking photos on my farm is gorgeous, but also entertaining thanks to all the baby chicks we have bouncing around. Miles got to hold one and I think I made his year... I love the photos we got!
Michelle and her family are some of my favorite clients. They have the sweetest kids and we always have such an easy time getting great photos. Michelle opted for another mini session this spring to get updated family portraits. The Heintzs give my name out to all their family and friends and I am so honored that they come back to me year after year. All of my mini sessions take place on my farm in Franklin, WI. We had gorgeous weather and the kids were all smiles for me. I love the shots we got and I hope you do too!
Photographing the Treu family was such a breeze. Melynda opted for the Mini Session Deal, which is a quick and easy session I offer in the spring for Milwaukee area families. I love that she kept wardrobe simple and comfortable for herself and her family. Working with her kids was so much fun - they especially loved our chickens!
This mini session had so much cuteness I could barely take it. Sara and her lovely family went with the mini session deal that takes place on my farm in Franklin, WI. We had the best time grabbing first-time portraits of their one-year-old daughter. 20 minutes is the perfect amount of time in front of the camera for young ones. I am in love with the candid snuggly quality of this whole session and I hope you are too!
I had so much fun photographing Rachel and her beautiful family on my farm here in Franklin, WI! Rachel opted for a 40-minute family portrait session where we spent the first 20 minutes focusing on the entire family and the final 20 minutes just on her 1-year-old (and his adorable stuffed lion too). Thank the weather gods for a warm sunny day - am I right?! The Chapmans were a dream to work with and their kids did such an awesome job smiling for their session. Take a peek for yourself!
Tess reached out to me in the dead of winter for some family portraits - a brave soul indeed. Of course, we had to reschedule a few times thanks to all the crazy snow we got in late April, but we finally got them done (just politely ignore the gigantic snow drifts in the background)! I even hauled my little white rocking chair downtown so we could get some super cute shots of their little one. We walked along Water Street in downtown Milwaukee for our family portrait session and got tons of adorable shots - check them out below!
I love when families come to me for their very first professional family portrait. Sarah confided in me that they have always gone for a JC Penny studio-type photography experience, but she was looking for something more personalized and fun this time around. Enter me! Sarah chose to have her family portraits here on my property in Franklin, WI. It was the perfect time of year to get a hint of fall color and I LOVE the wardrobe choices they made. Maroon is such a fabulous color choice for fall family portraits against the backdrop of faded green and autumn hues. The two kidlets were so well behaved and had such wonderful smiles. I loved working with the Marsch family and their portraits turned out gorgeous!
Photographing Sam and her beautiful family was such a treat! Sam contacted me for my Fall Mini Session Deal, which runs through October and November. We were a tad concerned about the cooler temps here in Franklin, so like a total genius Sam got these adorable bunny coats for her two girls. These sisters are the absolute cutest. The bunny coats kept them warm and definitely amped up the sisterly love. Scroll below to check out this sweet mini session!
I loved working with Heather and her beautiful family on this mini session. The mini session was the perfect length for their littlest girl, and they got tons of adorable shots. Heather came up with the idea to get the girls "superman-ing" their gymnastics leotards (see the photo below). Ideas like this make my heart soar!
