 I had posted an ad for wedding photography on a buy sell trade group and one of Holly's friends or family had commented on my ad with Holly's name. Holly replied back with "yeah but I bet they won't come to Nakoosa." I then sent a message to Holly telling her yes indeed we would come up to Nakoosa and would love to shoot her wedding.....and after a few message exchanges....the rest was history! So after finalizing the wedding booking we discussed options for locations that would be somewhat central for both of us for engagement pictures. We discussed doing them somewhere in Wisconsin Dells and then I came up with the idea of Devils Lake and what an awesome idea it was because the views and scenery were beautiful and made an awesome backdrop for pictures!

Family Session West Bend http://bretari.com/blog/2016/2/family-session-west-bend Family Photo Session - West Bend

We photographed this cute young family back in summer and the pics turned out so nice that they asked us to come to their home to photograph their family again, this time for the youngest 2nd birthday. They had such a nice home with great windows that let in a ton of natural light which was perfect for pics!

One year Photo Session Pewaukee http://bretari.com/blog/2016/1/pewaukee-family-session One year Photo Session - Pewaukee

Well it has been one spectacular year photographing little Hunter, watching him grow from a tiny, sleeping newborn baby to a walking,smiley toddler! It was such a pleasure not only shooting this little mans first of year of life but also getting to know his Mom and Dad too! That's why I am happy to announce we will be doing this all over again next year with his little brother or sister!

Engagement PicturesRichfield http://bretari.com/blog/2016/1/engagement-picturesrichfield Engagement Session - Richfield :  

Upon setting up this winter wonderland engagement session I was asked by the bride if it was ok to being their 5 year old daughter along for the pics too. I of course said yes no problem! When they arrived for the shoot I asked "so are we mostly doing couple pics and a few with your daughter?" And the bride said "well we would prefer mostly family pics instead of coupley pics". So even though she wanted mostly family pics we managed to sneak in a few couple pics too!

So we finally got a second snow fall after Christmas so I quickly called all my brides to be that were looking for wintry engagement photos and got them on the books. Not only did we end up having snow on the ground but the snow was actually falling for this shoot of this cute couple!

West Bend Family Shoot http://bretari.com/blog/2016/1/west-bend-family-shoot Family Photo Session - West Bend:

So last year we did this families Christmas pics and we were fortunate enough to have snow early in December last year. Well this year we got snow but it didn't last long and the next snow fall didn't come till after Christmas. So the week after Christmas I got a surprise call from this family saying they really wanted to have pics taken before the holidays but without the snow they decided to wait and she finally gave up and said lets just get something on the books. Well it turned out we happen to get snow a few days before their shoot and man were lucky because these pics turned out great, not only did we have a beautiful snow fall but the property we took the pics on was awesome too!

Engagement Photo Shoot Richfield http://bretari.com/blog/2016/1/engagement-photo-shoot-richfield Engagement Session - Richfield :  

This good looking couple drove over an hour to have their engagement pics taken at our favorite park. Not only were we lucky they made the drive down to us but all of us lucked out that it had snowed a few days before their shoot which made for a beautiful back drop for these romantic pics!

West Bend - Senior Photo Shoot http://bretari.com/blog/2016/1/west-bend---senior-photo-shoot Class of 2016 Senior Shoot - West Bend:  

When this beautiful young lady was 16 we took her sweet 16 pics. So mom decided to call us to take her Senior pics as well. Well this senior is an artist at heart and has appreciation for creativity. So she was looking for a more urban look to her senior pics. and since we did her sweet 16 pics downtown Milwaukee we decided to have her come out to our neck of the woods to our other favorite urban location and I'm pretty sure it was worth the drive!

Richfield - Senior Photo Shoot http://bretari.com/blog/2016/1/richfield---senior-photo-shoot Class of 2016 Senior Shoot - Richfield:  

One of the great things about one of the local High Schools is that they have a very late deadline for turning in yearbook pictures, which allow the seniors to be able to have pictures taken as late as December. That also means awesome fall or winter pics. or even sometimes...just helps out when you have a busy summer!

West Bend Family Session http://bretari.com/blog/2016/1/west-bend-family-session Family Photo Session - West Bend:

A lot of my clients turn to us to help select a location for their sessions. This particular mom was looking for somewhere different for her family pics. So I suggested doing an urban shoot and it turns out our favorite urban spot was where her and her husband grew up so they were all about it. Well after taking to her a little further I found out she had a 3 month old baby, at first I was a little worried how to incorporate a baby into an urban shoot but we treated like any other location and got some really awesome pics!

Richfield Family Session http://bretari.com/blog/2016/1/richfield-family-session Family Photo Session - Richfield:

Busy Families have hard enough time juggling day to day life but throw in a Dad that travels for work and you have even a busier schedule. So trying to squeeze in a photo shoot quick before Dad had to leave again was a tough project for mom. Good thing we were available last minute to do just that!

Family Photo Session Richfield http://bretari.com/blog/2016/1/family-session-photo-richfield Family Photo Session - Richfield:  

Fall is always our busiest season and our favorite park is our favorite place this time of year because it is absolutely gorgeous in fall. But we aren't the only photographers that love this park this time of year, so it gets a little crazy but good thing it is such a big park and there are a lot of awesome places to take great pics. Just like we captured of this cute little family!

Family Session Hartland http://bretari.com/blog/2016/1/family-session-heartland Family Photo Session - Hartland:  

Part III of our year in the life session.....featuring Hunter. 9 months is my favorite time of the first year of a baby, because they can sit up but not walking so there is no chasing and best of all they are so smiley at this stage!

Newborn Session - Kewauskum http://bretari.com/blog/2016/1/newborn-session---kewauskum Newborn Photo Session - Kewauskum:  

Newborn shoots are always a little stressful for lots of reasons, you never know babies mood, can't always catch them sleeping and we do all our shoots in home and we never know what the lighting conditions will be. This little cutie was such a good baby, she barely cried and mom and dad were so laid back. Lighting was a little bit of a challenge because it was a very dark and rainy day but took advantage of every little bit of light we could and as you can see we were able to capture some really awesome pics!

This was one of my favorite shoots we did this last fall! This was a "sister" shoot and we have never done a sibling only shoot before and we just love trying new things! These two gorgeous girls were so much fun to shoot and they even came armed with their own ideas. Take a look at how cute these pics turned out!
