"I was in the Starbucks on Downer and a man walks up to me and asks, "did you just get your photos taken by Jessica from Refinery?" His name was Carl and he said he did some work with you a few years ago. It was so AWESOME! Thanks for making me an official rockstar :)"

For a lot of us, the only time we really have a professional photo taken is high school graduation, or a wedding. But there are so many more opportunities to celebrate ourselves and mark different times throughout our life. Courtney came in for a session, and beyond just using these for headshots, she has some beautiful images of herself as a gorgeous, vibrant young woman, with a great smile.
The design team at Steinhafels Furniture really knows how to work it! Thanks to the team, and Steph Graham for making it such a fun shoot, and for letting us into your beautiful photo studio to make the pic! Find this in the most recent issue of M Magazine!

Last week Chris hired me because he got a promotion, and needed some portraits for a variety of uses including social media and images for upcoming conferences.
Even though these were for corporate use, I had the freedom to be a little looser with the posing and feel of the images.
I took a more editorial approach, and we acheived a nice variety of straight on headshots in addition to more editorial, magazine-style shots! (Pulling from my old days as a Magazine Staff Photographer!)
Congrats to Chris and his new adventures!
Arthur Ircink is the Founder, Director, & Producer of Wisconsin Foodie, an Emmy® Award-winning television series dedicated to discovering the stories behind the food we eat.
I met Arthur back when we were both young cats on the Photo/Video scene here in Milwaukee. So, I was delighted to hear from him when he said he had been nomintated for the Milwaukee Business Journal's 40 Under 40 and needed some portraits taken!
During our shoot Arthur mentioned that they always shoot natural light when they film the show, so I wanted to use the same approach with his picture. He also mentioned 60's French Filmmaker, François Truffaut, who has all these great, gritty, black and white images of himself, so I wanted to bring that into the shoot as well.
Congrats to Arthur for his nomination!
We were delighted to photograph and be a part of the Rare Steakhouse Preview Party! The original location is in Madison, and they just opened up a new location in downtown Milwaukee! Guests received star treatment and dined one delectable bites. Congrats Rare and best of luck!
