Green Bay Baby Session: Caleb – 3 months

Sometimes part of the fun of baby photo sessions is that we never know what to expect. Babies do their own thing! This little guy was such a good sport during his Green Bay baby session. No doubt, he already knows he’s pretty cute…

Downtown Green Bay Senior Pictures: Anna

Being a photographer is clearly awesome for so many reasons. One of my favorites is that every session is totally different. When we discussed options for Anna’s senior photo session, we kept coming back to the idea of a more urban look. Even though its become a popular location, it’s always fun to find new and different ways to create downtown Green Bay senior pictures. Of course, it doesn’t hurt to have super fun clients either 🙂

Seymour Family Session: Rohm Family [Behind the Scenes]

If you’re familiar with some of my website content, you’re probably aware that I shoot weddings, seniors, families, babies, “and other photography adventures.” That’s not just blog filler–I really do enjoy the creative challenge of new ideas. The Rohm family took me up on that with their ideas for this Seymour family session, and we had a great time!

Farm Senior Pictures: Jacob

Part of making senior pictures personal and memorable is using a location that is meaningful in some way. When we were planning Jacob’s session, the ideas we discussed were rustic, landscapes, textures, and a piano. Luckily, his uncle’s property had all that and more for his farm senior pictures!

Chicago Newborn Session — Ethan!

I have not gotten to photograph a little one this little in a long time. Ethan arrived into the world a wee bit early and I got to meet him at the perfect age of nine days old for his Chicago newborn session. In talking with his (very awesome) parents, I am in total awe of how easy they’re making everything look with this parenting thing. Ethan seems to have gotten that message too. He was a total joy to photograph!
