Contemporary Glamorous Portraits in Milwaukee – Casey in the West Allis Studio

“I’m a wedding/lifestyle photographer-based out of Wisconsin for the past 13 years. I’m prior military and have worn many hats in life. I’m a strong, compassionate and fun-loving person. I’m quirky, eccentric and have been called a spitfire on more than one occasion.
I have had some curve balls thrown at me over the years, but I always get back up. I’m resilient. I am passionate about people and living a life with purpose. I stick up for people and advocate for those that can’t for themselves. I am a devoted wife, mother, dog lover, adventure seeker, and gardener. What I love most about myself is that I always show up for people. I’m the person that people count on. I value real people with real stories. I am one of the most empathetic people you’ll meet. I show my heart on my sleeve, which has hurt me, but has also given me more joy than most probably have.
I am an advocate and warrior for sobriety. I’m not ashamed of my past and hope that someone else fighting a battle sees that you can pick yourself up and change your circumstances. Everything good and bad that I’ve been through has shaped me into the woman I now love when I look in the mirror. I believe everything happens for a reason and I believe my reason is to be vulnerable so I can help others.
I have loved Jennifer’s work since the day I stumbled across it. She’s professional, sophisticated and glamourous. I needed this for myself, and to showcase the woman I’ve become over the years. I wanted something to look back on to remember how far I’ve come, and the person I love today.
Jennifer is so on top of her shit, she doesn’t F around and I LOVE that! She knows what she wants and she does it. That’s my kind of people. I felt comfortable and had fun the entire time. I’m blown away by the different versions of me she captured…from smiley, fun and flirty to serious, seductive and badass bitch.
Jenn and Katrina are the perfect duo…I wouldn’t want anyone but Katrina doing my hair and makeup. She’s been my go-to and the person I send all my clients to over the past 6 years. They are both the best in the biz and always hit the mark!
At the reveal… well, I bawled …a lot…I didn’t have words…I just cried…good tears. It’s everything I could’ve hoped for.
I just want to tell everyone to invest in yourself. I think we take care of others so much we forget we need to take care of ourselves. This was much needed self-care for me.
As for the images… I am speechless! All of it.. the outfits… the poses…all of it. ♥” ~Casey
