Milwaukee Engagement Photographer :: Clare and Alex

This past weekend all the stars aligned and I was not only able to spend a great weekend in Chicago with a whole bunch of friends, see a concert and celebrate a friendsgiving … I got to meet a 2018 wedding couple and do their fun engagement photos! And it was BEAUTIFUL outside. Like, 60. Unheard of in December in these parts!  Plus these two were adorable and perfect and I can’t wait for their big day!


Clare, you’re basically a model!


When you get L in your shot – so Chicago!


Fall colors AND festive Christmas lights?! So fun!




Had to do an under-the-tracks shot :)


See you two this summer for the big day! -Katie

Milwaukee Family Photographer :: The Whole Gottsacker Family!

You maaaaay recognize literally everyone in this family because I’ve done everything from senior pics, to weddings, to family photos, to newborn photos, to holiday photos, to engagement photos for these guys. And now, let’s add anniversary-whole-family-photos to the list!  These people are some of my favorites ever – especially that pretty pregnant lady (aka one of my besties) – and I loved getting to do these!


Four amazing grandkids and one on the way!


And now from oldest to youngest – Erin + fam


Jody + Mason!


Margaret + Patrick (+babeeeee)!


Elise + Mitch annnnd the two solo youngest Peter and Kalee (whom I more or less made do this pose for me for funsies ;))


You’d think I’d hate ideas like this, but I LOOOOVE when people recreate old photos. So fun! Also, way harder to get 8 adults into the same space as 2 adults + 6 kids. Fyi.


Look at this gang!


This is not the world’s best photo. But loooook at Seamus look at this Grandpa. I MEAN!  And Declan hugging his mom. And Cormac helping little Mason, both in their nice jackets. I can’t handle it.


Last, but not least, my favorite!


Thanks for being such troopers everyone! – Katie

Milwaukee Family Photographer :: The Adamczak Family!

Last winter my sweet cousin and her husband welcomed twin baby girls, Jordan and Emily!  And finally over the holiday week I got to get my camera on them!  They’re THE cutest girlies and so funny and soo different, which always blows my mind about twins.  It was so fun to see you guys!  Meet Jordan and Emily –


Emily – curly haired and so quick to smile and explore, and Jordan – straight haired and serious and snuggly!



The cutest.


hahahaha – neither of the girls were on board with this photo idea! But it’s so cute anyway!


Happy Thanksgiving you guys! Hopefully see you this summer! -Katie

This family! They’re so special to me because I was their engagement photographer, wedding photographer, newborn photographer … and now they have the sweetest, goofiest little lady and it was SO great to see them again and see how big she’s gotten and hear her chatter up a storm!  Miss Emmy is just adorable!


It was so great to see you guys! -Katie

Milwaukee Family Photographer :: The A. Family

Another Red Rock Denver family here for you!  I’ve probably mentioned this every time I’ve photographed them and shared the photos, but we have the funniest story of how we met. I would say 96% of the people I photograph either know me directly or were directly referred to me …. but these guys I met in a parking lot with their brand new baby girl who’s now a BIG GIRL and a big sister and I love getting to see them every time!


Little Deacon was so cute just spontaneously doling out kisses!




It was great to see you guys!!
