I love my Raleigh families but I won’t lie, the opportunity to photograph this family in downtown Milwaukee was one that I had to make happen this summer. While on vacation to visit my husband’s family, we met up with one of his high school buddies and his wife and children. Once everyone got warmed up (literally and figuratively), we really had a great time exploring downtown together. Lots of snuggling was involved.

What I remember most about this session is that I hope my children grow up to be like Mike and Donna’s kids. I really enjoyed hanging out with them and letting them direct the shoot a bit. They are kind, respectful, and full of personality. They had great attitudes about the cold weather and didn’t hesitate to tell me all about their favorite activities. When these guys grow up and turn into awesome adults, their parents are going to be thrilled they took the time to capture them as kids this past summer.

Here’s a few of my favorite “fun” images from our sunset shoot as well as the custom wall display we put together!
