I’m always so flattered when another photographer comes to me for portraits. Jennifer is a very talented wedding/ family photographer in Milwaukee. Her daughter Ella just turned 8, so they came in for some classic mother/daughter portraits.
I’m so grateful for Jennifer trusting me to make beautiful portraits of her, and with her daughter. And now a little bit on her experience in her own words:
Gah! I am just so happy with every. single. portrait. Jenn is, hands down, the best.
Everything was easy, starting with the first consultation. I tend to be over critical of myself, and anytime someone takes my picture I become anxious. Jenn was empathetic to my body image struggles and sincerely interested in learning about my expectations for the shoot, which made a typically stressful situation quite relaxing. I brought waaaay too many things to wear, gave her complete control over my wardrobe selection and she did so happily. And to say I was pleased with my hair and makeup would be a huge understatement. Theresa pampered us, and we felt like princesses the entire time.
I didn’t expect to get emotional at the reveal, but it happened. I just couldn’t believe it was me. As a fellow photographer, I love seeing how other people capture Ella’s personality. She nailed it.
Jenn goes far beyond taking pictures. She has helped me see myself for who I truly am and created images my daughter and I will treasure for all time. I am forever grateful to her this experience <3
