Milwaukee Family Photographer :: The Scott Family

This past weekend I took a whirlwind trip to Denver to see some of my favorite people and do a handful of shoots!  It was SO much fun and the perfect weather and I love all the shoots I have to share this week!! I flew in Friday morning superrr early and got a hair cut (shopped 12 inches! go check it out on instagram @katiederusphoto!) before meeting Carin for lunch and then picking up Ella and Max from school (the best!) and then heading to do this family’s photos! It was a prefect evening and these boys are soon cute. We had a blast exploring the park and grabbing a few shots!

Milwaukee Family Photographer :: Benji is 1!

You guyyyyys. This session is so wonderful and I’m so excited to share it for so many reasons, but mainly these two: Little Benji is such a happy, cute, funny little man and this family’s wonderful old Milwaukee home made such a unique and perfect backdrop for these images!  Not to mention the fact that 1 year olds are just such a fun age to capture – one of my all time favorites!  Without further ado, meet the birthday boy and his family:

Milwaukee Newborn Photographer :: Welcome to the World Lucia!!

Do you remember Heather and Kevin’s maternity photos from a few months ago?? I had just met them, but already I could tell how wonderful they would be as parents when their little lady arrived. And sure enough this past weekend I got to meet baby Lucia and see them in action and they’re so great!  This is such a cute little family and I love how these images turned out! Meet Miss Lucia –

She was wide awake the whole time – which usually makes newborn shoots a bit of a struggle – but Lucia was so calm and chill and just let us lay her down wherever and snap photos!

Milwaukee Family Photographer :: Laura and Ross

I feel like this post is a lonnnng time coming. Because I’ve been saying we would do these photos FOREVER. But then life gets in the way and we kept ending up putting it off. But finally this past weekend I found the time to get my camera out and capture my best friend, Laura, and her husband, Ross, and their pup (big doggie ;)), Sadie!  Sadie is the SWEETEST doggo, but she’s also still more or less a puppy so she was a little confused why we were at the park to sit politely over and over again and not run around playing!  Check out my adorable friends –

Milwaukee Family Photographer :: The Hornung Family

Well it’s my first family photo post of 2017! Technically we did these at the very tail end of 2016, but since I’ve been back in Colorado for the New Year I didn’t get a chance to post these yet. :)  But get ready. Because it’s a great way to start out the year and I hope it’s setting a tone for how the rest of this year will be!! These guys were not only brave – I mean winter in Wisconsin is no joke and we shot out side! Although, to be fair, it was really nice out by Wisconsin standards! – they are so cute and were so fun to work with and there’s even a fun surprise at the end!!  Check out this whole extended family:

I love that they had fun with this even though it was chilly and it was a lot of work wrangling everyone for these!

How cute are these kiddos? Oldest, sweet, Truman.  Middle, funny, Cecilia. Little, Goofy, Porter!

And ready for the big surprise?  These guys will be welcoming baby #4 (!!) this summer so we did a little fun reveal photo for them to announce to everyone!  The kids mostly just loved getting to play with giant balloons haha!  But the bigger kids especially really understood they would be getting a new baby brother or sister soon and are so excited!

Hahah love this one!

Thanks for having me out to do these you guys!! It was a blast and I’m so glad the weather cooperated! -Katie
