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:

Christian + Abigail | Married | Milwaukee County Historical Society Wedding


This little guy wasn’t really sure if he wanted to be the center of attention. He turned back a couple of times before hitting a full send down the aisle! 😂😍

Just a little bit obsessed with this getaway vehicle!

The details + this room = ✨MAGIC✨

Abigail and Christian, as well as their families and friends were so generous and sweet! It was such an honor to be apart of their gorgeous day!
