Baby Sheldon decided that he needed to cook an extra week or so before the world welcomed him.
And welcomed he was.
I went to his family’s home to capture their new life together. Sheldon’s big sister Esther introduced me to her baby (the doll), and her baby (the brother)
and showed me what sweet and caring big sister she already is… and what a little ham she’s turned into since her newborn session nearly 2 years ago.
Life with 2 babies is a whole different story, and it’s a lot more work for Mom Dad, but this family seems to have adjusted to their new life seamlessly.
I always tell people that my favorite part of parenthood is seeing the love my children have for each other, how it changes and grows… and how it some
days seems to not exist at all 🙂
But it is always a gift, and one that these parents deserve. I’m so happy for them and can’t wait to see them all grow together.
I’m a pretty lucky gal to make a living doing what I do.
People invite me into their homes and their lives to capture and then retell their stories… it’s magical and I love it!
And every so often I’m invited to do this for the people in my life.
I’ve know Andy for over a decade and have always loved him to pieces. And I feel so lucky to say that his lady, Cortney, has become one of my
great girlfriends over the past few years.
They are good through and through, with only warmth and creativity to spread to those around them.
Three years ago they brought Abraham into the world (on my birthday!) and now they’ve graced us all with Vivian. She is dainty and lovely,
and hopefully one day, will have as many gorgeous freckles as her beautiful mommy.
I love this family, and I love retelling this chapter of their story.
Engagement sessions are great! I love the opportunity it gives me and my clients to connect before their big day arrives. It’s casual, relaxed, and always a good time.
This past fall I met up with Janet and Kyle for their engagement session in Milwaukee’s Third Ward, a neighborhood they feel a strong connection to as a couple.
We walked, chatted, had a few laughs, and got some awesome shots of them just being themselves. Then we headed to Bay View’s Humboldt Park to finish up with the last of the fall colors…
I love that their gentle nature shines through in the photos.
Their Lambeau Field wedding next fall is sure to be blast!
I LOVE when I get to photograph my friends and their children! We were supposed to do a newborn session for little Max, but some early-on health issues, (and life) got in the way.
But here we are 6 months later, and Max is a healthy, happy and strong little boy! And he has the same warm and kind smile that his gorgeous mama has always had. Some people just have that little spark that lights up a room… and Max has already harnessed it.
Life is beautiful Max, keep spreading your joy.
