little miss leah + family. (milwaukee family photographer)

katrice contacted me regarding a family session towards the end of last year.  she went into a beautiful written message about how she was a photographer and wanted to not only document her daughter, but her parents and specifically the relationship her daughter, leah, has with her dad.  to sum up, the email gave me goose bumps as i read.

she also went on to explain that the house she currently lived in had been in their family for many generations, and it lived up to all the thoughts that go through your head when you think of heirlooms.  it was filled with so much character and story, i was in love.

my absolute favorite part of our time together was all the smiles.  watching leah light up and burst with happiness and seeing the family just be.  it all made my job very, very easy!

Devin Rogers - Your photos are top notch, you’ve got a creative eye & I can really appreciate that. And I really want to have you shoot some video with us.

Karie Dahlen - I love photography and wish I would have gone down that career path. I have 2 children and would love to have the opportunity to meet you and for you to capture their innocence and playfulness. Your pictures are beautiful!

Cassie Winter - Would love for you to photograph our family again! I treasure the pictures you took of my daughter. We are also welcoming a baby boy to our family this February so this opportunity would be perfect and much appreciated!

Karla - As I said on Facebook, I would love to win because we haven’t had a family portrait in the past 7 years or so. My son is 9 now. And, even then, our idea of professional portrait is Sears. The other reason would be that it would finally stop my mom and step-mom asking when they were going to get a family picture. Having them off my back for just one picture would be win enough! I do love the look of your photos as well.

Rebecca Myers - Hello, my name is Rebecca. I have been interested in photography for 10 years. Photography is my passion. I’ve take pictures of my family and friends pro bono but they choose to pay for pictures of the same quality elsewhere. I’m very shy and can’t seem to get a break. I am and looking to take my pictures to the next level such as yours. I’ve been trying all different types of lenses, lighting, settings etc. and nothing seems to work. This would be an awesome opportunity. Thanks.

Janice Burch - Would so love to win this package. Life’s momentum is on fast forward, and the incredibly delicate and heartfelt moments we treasure with the people we care most about fly by without record. These fleeting moments – from time spent with my dear aging mom to my fast growing college aged kids, to moments with my dearest friends, my business, my brothers and their families, and our growing family as little ones are added each year – need to be captured.

Help us create a portrait of our lives as events unfold in 2015 – before another year passes us by.
