She’s Here! | Milwaukee Baby Photographer

Our very own sweet girl, Ava James Qualizza, arrived on Tuesday, November 18th at 2:51pm in the afternoon… all 6lbs 14oz and 20.5in of her!  We are so completely in love and enjoying every single moment with her as she finds her place in the World and we discover all the amazing things that come with being parents.  I want to thank all my wonderful clients for their well wishes and support over the past few years as we have been on this journey to parenthood!

I plan on working with my current client base during this first year of Ava’s life so I can spend as much time loving on her and then start to expand my business again in 2016.

Happy New Year everyone and cheers to new beginnings and new life!

Most of my clients have been with me from the very beginning… growing their families right alongside of me growing my business and cheering me on the whole way through!  I feel like my circle of friends has grown exponentially with all the love and support they provide, and so, it’s beyond exciting for my husband and I to be able to join them in becoming our very own family… We are finally expecting our first baby in November!

You don’t really realize what a challenge it is to stay positive and hopeful while experiencing infertility until it happens to you… and I can honestly say that my clients played a big part in keeping my spirits up, by sharing their own struggles, triumphs and success stories and continually keeping us in their thoughts and prayers – we are so grateful for the relationships we have formed and look forward to introducing our new little one to you all very soon!

Happy 2nd Birthday Stella | Milwaukee Family Photographer

Eight months ago our lives changed forever… we were rescued by a little Boston named, Stella.  She came into our house, made it a home, and in the blink of an eye we gained a brand new best friend!  Moving to a new state, both starting new jobs and beginning our life together as husband and wife were all amazing changes… but adopting Stella from the Wisconsin Boston Terrier Rescue has definitely been the most fun!

Today we celebrated her 2nd birthday with doggy cookies and an awesome rendition of Happy Birthday To You –  Can’t wait to see what this next year brings us… One thing is for certain… we will have endless laughs and memories made with this little goofball!

Happy Birthday Stella, We Love You!
