WISCONSIN PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHERS | LAURIE! / by Kelsy & Butch McCartney

wisconsin-lifestyle-portraits-001 Right around this time last year we had the GIANT honor of photographing this beautiful lady!!! Laurie is an amazing wedding photographer in the Milwaukee area and we were ecstatic when she reached out to us for photos to accompany the launch of her new website! Not only has her new brand been looking lovely since last summer, it is also the perfect representation of who Laurie is and what matters most in her life. :) Knowing that Laurie asked the two of us to be a little part of her journey makes us smile so big!!

For this lifestyle session, Laurie wanted to incorporate a few of her favorites – coffee, photos, her fiancé and baking! From the outfits she chose to the pampering she enjoyed leading up to her session & the gorgeous, joyful smile that never left her face, it's so fun for us to share these images with you today and relive the inspiring afternoon we shared!! :) We love the natural sparkle in Laurie's eyes because at the time of this session, she was in the process of reaching out & authentically grabbing what she wanted to achieve with her business by building her brand around her personality & passion!

Love, Kelsy & Butch
