Autumnal Family Photos around Downtown Waukesha

I love being located in downtown Waukesha! I never knew what vibrant fall colors we got around the Fox Riverwalk until we moved here. This family is one that I’ve been blessed to photograph for many years (ever since their littlest was a newborn!) and each year we try to hit a different spot with fall color. This session might be one of my favorites! I love the red and burgundy tones.

    Behind-the-Scenes Look at How Our Canvases Are Made

    When you commission us to photograph your family, the end result is a museum quality, handmade piece of art to enjoy in your home. These pieces are unlike any other canvases you have seen or felt before. They’re so thick and durable you can even clean them with windex! Each canvas comes stretched tight as a drum head, with hand painted clear acrylic brushstroking, a certificate of authenticity, and a canvas crate for safe traveling. 

    Watch this 90 second video to see the process each photograph goes through to become a true work of art:

        Glowing in Gowns

        I just wanted to take a minute to appreciate how fun it is to incorporate some of the studio’s wardrobe pieces into a session! Even if you’re not sure you want to do your entire session in this style, we can absolutely do a few shots “all dolled up.” My studio stocks a small selection of gowns in sizes 12m – 12y, mostly from Dollcake and Tutu du Monde, and we can also source special gowns just for your portrait session if desired. (Mom, don’t forget that I have a few options for you too if you want to jump in with your kiddo!)

          A Wisconsin Girl Goes to Texas

          I have worked with this awesome family for over 7 years now! That just blows my mind. I first got a call from them just after the birth of their oldest son, and I’ve been blessed to photograph them at least annually ever since then. You can imagine my devastation when I learned that they were relocating to Texas for work — I may or may not have shed real tears, ha!

          So when it came time for me to pick which photography workshop I was going to attend last year (I always try to do something to continue my education as a professional photographer at least once a year) I saw that there was a workshop happening in a city a few hours away from them in Texas. I quickly texted Danielle to see if they’d be interested in me stopping by for a visit (and to photograph them), I was overjoyed when she was just as excited as I was! It was a done deal.

          Man, that trip to Texas was amazing. The workshop was fantastic, I got to stop at Magnolia on my way up to this family, and after I photographed them they were so gracious to treat me to dinner and let me spend the night before I flew back out.

          I am so lucky to have made lifelong friends with so many of my clients over the years, including Chris & Danielle and their beautiful kids. I hope you enjoy these photos from their session.
