MAGGIE MAE | BARKHAUSEN PRESERVE FINE ART PORTRAITS | GREEN BAY, WISCONSIN

I can't say that I've ever done a session that embodied who I am as a person more than this. When Alysce came to me with the idea, and we showed each other our mood boards it was obvious we would pair well together for this project.

Kypton x Natalia are very special in our home. They were are first friends in Green Bay. Our first session with Natalia was when this little cutie below was in her belly and she had just moved her from Arizona. What started as a Maternity Session turned into a friendship for both Cole & I. We had many lunch & play dates with the boys and they became little buddies.

One warmer than usual June day a group of creative entrepreneurs and models gathered on The Millers Family farm in Whitelaw, Wisconsin to share their talents and come together for a Styled Shoot.

BREE TESKE | MINT SALON EDITORIAL | WHITELAW, WI

How fun is this wild look put together by hair and makeup artists at The Mint Salon and this dress by Zulou. It may not be your every day look but I'm sure digging those jewels around the eye, it creates such intriguing interest around her eyes and just make them pop is such a cool way. I'd totally wear this look to a party for New Years or Halloween.

This look was created for our Tuesday's Together Styled Shoot with the Green Bay Chapter of the Rising Tide Society. It was warmer and a little humid after some afternoon rain we were glad went away quickly but left us feeling a little muggy. I was glad to see this model sporting this dress keeping her cool while she posed away the day.

Bree works for the Mint Salon and is also sister to our fierce Tuesday's Together leader Shaunáe Teske. I love all her creative ink especially the "Amore" adorned on her right wrist. She was such a sport skipping around and striking some strong poses for us. Here are shown more of the softer side of the images I took and I absolutely adore this first one of her. How about those florals creating our little jungle here, they were created by the talented Sunny owner of Ebb & Flow Flowers and used to be personal florist to none other than Oprah herself. Ummm....how cool is that?!

So much went into this special day, so many talented vendors coming together to support each others businesses, make friendships, and share educations and their skillset with everyone. But huge Thanks to Shaunáe Teske and Nicole Garcia for putting this day together and keeping us all corralled, without them this wonderful day would have not been possible. If you would like to see more from our Rising Tide Styled Shoot you can find the Boho Country Inspired Shoot here, the Wagner Family here, and Katie x Duke's Wedding here.

WAGNER FAMILY | FINE ART FARM FAMILY SESSION | WHITELAW, WI

A family filled with love inviting another little one into their family. Such a joy to be around a sweet family like this. We chatted about parenthood, ran around the Wisconsin farm field in the bright sunlight. The kids pretended to be planes chasing each other around and were such sweethearts to each other. At the beginning their father Rodney read them Trainbots while the Author & I watched as the children cheered on the Trainbots as they found a way to outsmart The Badbots and make their way to Kids Town to deliver the Toybots. Check out the nifty Trainbots made by Lego Artist Lyn Miller-Lachman. It's a book we will be adding to our collection to enjoy for years. 

To see what other happening were had at our Styled Shoot check out Katie x Duke's Wedding here, The Mint Editorial here, and the Boho Country Inspired Shoot here.

NATALIA | VOYAGER PARK MATERNITY SESSION | DE PERE, WI

 

    Natalia and Raphael moved to Green Bay from Arizona at about the time we settled here in our new town as well. We quickly bonded over our hometown horrible football teams and how easy it to transition into Packer Fans. We spent the evening strolling along the De Pere river walk and watched the sun set over the docks.

Natalia has decorated the baby room in a nautical theme and Voyager park set the stage for the perfect images to be featured in his room. Make sure you check out her cute anchor ring and the baby's first stuffed animal whale. They were the cutest details that made this session extra special.

RICKY SAM | IN HOME NEWBORN SESSION | ST. LOUIS, MO

Ricky Sam has entered the World and into a sweet loving family. I was honored to be asked into the Beutel families home to spend the morning with my wonderful friend and new Mama Ember. It’s not been long since Cole was this tiny and it took me right back to capturing his sweet piggies and little details. Ricky was a good sport for the constant camera attention. What a selection of sweet photos I hope this family will treasure forever.
