51: The Bauman Family

One of the Joys of being a photographer is to interact with newborn babies and their parents. They are so precious and when they have siblings, as was the case with Drew’s brothers, it is an added bonus. I recently shot the Bauman Family. What a treat that was. See a slideshow below of that event.

#49: Sunshine Acid Designs: Jewelry by Amanda Mills

Recently the beautiful Amanda asked me to shoot a concept shoot to showcase her custom made jewelry. We went out to shoot in a near by lawn location and some woods. Had a blast shooting these images. She is debuting her jewelry this weekend. Good Luck Amanda!

#48: Beautiful Kieyana

Kieyana was so much fun to shoot. I met her at the miss teen contest where I was a judge recently. Kieyana has poise, grace and a great smile. We did have an experience of being booted out of a location – but in my mind had a blast grabbing a couple more shots while packing up. Kieyana was a natural. A couple of images now….more after they have viewed the rest of the images. Don’t want to spoil the impact of seeing them for the first time on a large screen TV.

I absolutely love shooting little babies….they are fun, filled with joy and always give me great expressions.  Here is a video of a recent shoot of Ryan – the adorable 11 month old, with his mom, dad and Grandma.

#46: Belle Bellies Collection

I really enjoy shooting pregnancy shoots and bringing out the beauty of this special stage in life.  I think it is an intimate, beautiful and a joyous time.  I love seeing the expressions when people say….I feel so big and not-so-pretty….and then feel so happy when they say, my pictures made me feel pretty and thin and lovely.  That is a nice feeling to have a meaningful impact on people’s lives.  Here are a few from a recent on location shoot of the Beautifully Pregnant Marisa.  Cheers to a Belle Belly!

# 45: The great storm in Milwaukee….and a shoot during it

Went out Sunday to shoot Amanada and Saebra….As soon as we started the shoot, a BIG storm hit us.  We ducked and hit under the Marsupial Bridge.  But decided to shoot through the storm…..It was a lot of fun….Here is the first image of the series.

#44: Marisa: Pregnancy is a beautiful thing!

These are images of Marisa.  We spend some nice time yesterday shooting her in my in-home studio.  She was charming and beautiful.  She was just glowing with the “pregnancy glow”.  I love shooting pregnant bellies.  They are so beautiful and intimate.  Hope to photograph the baby that is in that belly soon.  Good luck Marisa and best wishes for a happy and healthy baby!!!
