Class of 2012 Senior Model-Kayleigh

This past weekend I had the opportunity to photograph Kayleigh, one of our Class of 2012 senior models in Milwaukee. Kayleigh had the cutest outfits with great spring colors (and awesome makeup). I loved her sense of style and she had the sweetest personality to match. Even though the weather was still a wintry mess, we were able to pretend it was sunny with some fun, indoor, warm-weather looks. Kayleigh will be coming back in May for some more outdoor photography, and I can’t wait to shoot something more urban and (hopefully) green! Thanks so much for sharing your Saturday with me at Shoot the Moon Photography Kayleigh! We are still accepting model applications for the Class of 2012. Click here to apply!
Check out a few of Kayleigh’s senior photos!

Milwaukee Boudoir Photography: We're bringing sexy back.

We had a fabulous time going through her wardrobe and choosing tons of different outfits. Whether you are looking for a unique gift for your husband or just want to celebrate your inner supermodel, call up the studio and schedule a session! 262-240-9848

Milwaukee Child Photography: Sisters!

These two came into the Mequon studio and were great to work with! They had the perfect outfits to try out our newest backdrop with. I love the pale blue and it seems like a great color to welcome in spring! … if it ever gets here 😉 Here are a few favorites from the session.


Milwaukee Family Photography: Session Share!

This family came in for an evening appointment last week and were a great way to end the work day. Everyone had a great attitude which really shows through in their portraits. I also LOVED how they coordinated themselves. The gray tones look fantastic and give a modern feel to the session. If you are ever wondering how to style a group for a family portrait we always recommend choosing a pattern and then have other individuals pick out colors from that pattern. Have fun with it! I love the mix of plaid and stripes below! Check out a few from their session. I had an amazing time and it was truly a pleasure to photograph your family 🙂

Its a blog carnival- Custom photography information, Milwaukee

I’m so excited to be partnering up with some amazingly talented professional portrait photographers from all around the country in what we’re calling a ”blog carnival”. The goal is to provide our readers with information about all aspects of working with a custom photographer. So here’s the scoop…. read my article below preparing for your viewing and ordering appointment and at the end I’ll provide some info about the next photographer featured and a link to her blog and article. At the end of her article on her blog you’ll see a link to another photographer’s blog and their article and the fun goes on and on… kinda like a carnival without the feeling of motion sickness from being on the tilt-a-whirl for too long after too many candy apples! Seriously, you will love what you learn, and the photographers… well, they’re just amazing.


The viewing and ordering appointment is one of our most favorite parts of the entire custom portrait experience! This is when we get to share the culmination of all of our hard work with you. Its emotional and amazing to see your family’s images large up on the screen in our cozy viewing room.

Most people have the common misconception that it will be very difficult to choose! Please rest assured, we will help you make this process smooth and amazing for you but here are a few tips to help make it easier!

  1. Measure your walls. Most people choose custom photography to create art for their walls. This is one of our specialities and we love to help you create something truly unique. Its helpful to come in with measurements, or even cell phone photos of possible walls you are considering. Most people immediately think over the fireplace, sofa or up the stairs, but we encourage you to think outside the box. We can custom size images and can create something perfect for that hard to fit space such as between windows, over cabinets or in nooks. By bringing in measurements, it helps to ensure proper scale.
  2. Bring all decision makers. Your ordering will happen at this time so if you will have multiple people involved in the decision process, please make sure they are in attendance.
  3. Make a list of anyone who needs gifts. We can help to determine the most appropriate packages, or best value in ordering based on what images you want, so please bring a list of anyone that may need gifts.
  4. Come with an open mind! This is huge! Often, particularly if you have not visited a custom photographer in the past, you will expect to find 2-3 images you love and are quite surprised when there are 30 amazing images you simply must have. We have tons of ideas and products to help you get those amazing images and we will work together with you to find the most appropriate products. You may have come in wanting a single large image for over your fireplace, only to find that a series of 4 images scaled to the appropriate size will create a bigger impact in your room.
  5. Lastly, enjoy the process. Its a beautiful thing to see your daughter’s beautiful blue eyes smiling at your larger than life– or your little boy’s chubby fingers wrapped around yours. Custom photography is emotional and touching and the viewing and ordering appointment is your chance to view the lifelong art we have created together.


Next up on our blog carnival is my dear friend Anna Karin Skillen from Louisiana. She is from Sweden and has the cutest accent. She is going to write an article on how to safely travel with camera equipment. SO Helpful!

Milwaukee Family Photography

Shooting a family is always a “never-know-what-to-expect” experience. No two families are alike, have the same personalities, or interact in the same way. As a photographer you can logistically prepare for it as much as you’d like, but you never know what the shoot will be like until that family walks through the door. It’s always a sort of anticipation filled surprise, meeting a group of people who is about to trust you with capturing this point in their lives through images. Here at our Mequon and Delafield photography studios we love being able to provide family photography as diverse as your families. Whether your style is traditional, casual, funky, or anywhere between, we love being able to create images that relay your group’s own personality. Check out some images from one of my favorite recent sessions (seriously, I LOVED them!). These kids were some of the most loving siblings I’ve ever had the opportunity to photograph and the littlest guy has one of the biggest personalities I’ve seen in such a small package. Shoot the Moon Photography would love to meet your family, so call today to set up your consultation or appointment! 262-240-9848

What to wear for Photos: Milwaukee Family Photography

The question always comes up– what do we wear for our photos! This is a common question we get at the portrait studio when people call for their photography session. The best advice is to coordinate but still let your individual personalities shine through! Pick a color or grouping of colors to use (hint- coordinate it with your furniture for an awesome look! Pops of red in the photo coordinated with red throw pillows- custom fabulousness!) but in different prints and textures make your family portraits look cohesive but not matchy!
