Haecker Family | Milwaukee Family Portrait Session

Guys! This family was basically my first “real” clients. I had recently graduated college and really the only people I had photographed were either friends from school, friends from church, or family friends. Everyone I had worked with thus far had been people I had met/known already. The Haeckers were the first clients I had that I hadn’t ever met before, before our session! Dawn and Greg put their faith in my to take their family photos when I was just getting my business off the ground. It meant so much to me and I’m so thankful for them.

Dawn reached out a few weeks back asking if I would be available to do family photos. The date she asked about was a Saturday, for me, Saturdays in the summer are usually booked with weddings, but this particular Saturday, I by chance wasn’t booked! I didn’t realize until they told me today, this really was the only day it could have worked. Cole flew in this afternoon from a trip, and Hannah is back to school tomorrow morning! So glad this worked out, it was so much fun getting to catch up with them.

Here are a few of my favorite photos from their session:

Andrew + Abby | Married | Feté of Wales Wedding


I’m not crying, you’re crying!

I counted, I believe the number is 249 people in this shot! 😮

When your uncle has a vintage truck, naturally you make the bride crank it started 😂

Now how is that for a donut wall!? 😍🍩 The groom made it by hand!

Yearly Scott + Michelle portrait! ♥️ Also the two couples on the left (Kyle + Taylor, Scott + Michelle) are Liller Photo alum! Love getting to catch up with past couples and hear how life is going!
