Milwaukee Family Photographer :: Welcome to the World Frederick!

One of my favorite things about living back in Wisconsin is that my shoots more frequently involve people I’ve known for year.  A few days ago I got to go see my friend, Nora from high school and her husband meet her new baby boy, Frederick!  Nora is seriously one of the nicest people ever and she’s already such an awesome mom and little Freddie is SO precious!  Check out this sweet family –

Milwaukee Family Photographer :: The Schneider Family

Back in college I worked as a photojournalist for the local paper. That paper was actually laid out and printed 30 minutes away. So every day I would send my photos over and get to have lovely phone conversations with the layout people.  People I talked to every day, but never met. Fast forward 8 years and several moves later and this past weekend I got to finally meet one of those voices on the other end of the line!  Jeremy and his wife recently added a new little lady to the family and I’m SO excited we got to make these family photos happen! Not to mention Miss Madeline is SO dang cute!

Milwaukee Family Photographer :: Welcome to the World Wallace

Getting to meet newborn babies is a pretty standard activity for me as a photographer. But getting to meet a newborn baby who’s the fourth baby in a family? That’s a little more rare! But the few I have met have always been the most calm, chill, laid-back babies, and Mr. Wallace was no exception!  Even with his big siblings holding him and poking him and kissing him and having a near-constant interest in him – he was just chillin’ as sweet as can be.  And there’s no doubt that he’s one lucky little boy because he is absolutely SURROUNDED by love!  Also – you might recognize this family from about 8 months ago when we did a little 4th baby announcement shoot with some fun big balloons! Well, that 4th baby is here now and so precious and I LOVE how these family photos turned out!

Nothing better than a newborn baby.

He may or may not be the center of attention ;)

FOUR kiddos!

Mr. Porter, in true 3-year-old fashion, was a little less inclined to participate in all the “yay baby Wallace!” photos… but I’d be willing to bet as the two grow up they will best buds and this will be the kind of photo they laugh about in adulthood!

Even in-between asking the kids to pose for photos they still wanted to be where Ace was.

Milwaukee Maternity Photos :: Whitney and Kevin + 2!

Okay so not only is this an ADORABLE maternity session, but these two are expecting TWINS which means double the love coming their way! AND! It turns out they’re my neighbors – because Milwaukee really is a small town haha. Also, lucky for us, but especially lucky for Whitney who’s carrying around two sweet babies, it was a beautiful day without all the aggressive humidity we usually have swamping us around here! Check out these two parents-to-be –
