Milwaukee Wedding Photographer :: Elise and Mitch

Where to begin with this wonderful, stunning day… Elise is the younger sister of one of my best friends so I’ve known her family for what seems like forever and it made being a part of her wedding day feel extra special! And Mitch is just the perfect guy for her!  The day was seriously perfect and went off without a single hitch and even the weather was spectacular! Every started out getting ready at the Intercontinental Hotel in Milwaukee…

Then it was time to get dressed!  And Elise wore a re-worked version of her mother’s wedding dress which I LOVE! And she looked seriously stunning in it!

Milwaukee Newborn Photographer :: Welcome To The World Vera!!

You guys. Life is crazy. I live in Milwaukee now and one of my best friends just had a baby!!  Both of those things are just nuts!  But the best most wonderful kind of crazy for sure!!  AND. Since I now live back in the midwest, it was easy for me to pack a bag and my camera gear a drive a few hours to meet this sweet little baby girl and hang with her Mom and Dad for a few days which was wonderful!  I’m probably biased, but she’s the sweetest little newborn I’ve ever met!  Meet Vera Eleanor:

I met her 1 week and 1 day after her birth and she was already a very awake and alert little lady!

It’s the most crazy to see my friend, Bailee, as a mom – but she’s a natural!  And Clayton makes a great Dad too!

Blog_10Blog_11Blog_12Blog_13Blog_14

Vera, you are one lucky little lady!

If you know my friend Bailee at all you know she’s a cat lady through and through. So it was just perfect that this stray kitty hopped up to try to join their family photos!

Denver Family Photographer :: The Perel Family

It’s been a little while since I had last seen this sweet family and in that time they added a new little lady to the family!! It was so fun to see them again and see how big Miss Talia had gotten and get to meet baby Mira!  And I owe them a big thank you for being flexible with me when I had a nasty case of strep throat when we were supposed to originally do this shoot!  So great to see you guys! Enjoy this cute family:
