Alberto, Jonna, & Maxwell | Minnesota Family Session

When Alberto asked me to do his family pictures, I was absolutely honored. He has been one of my associate photographers for 5 years, and I consider him to be a good friend as well, so that trust meant the world to me.

Alberto and Jonna have the most amazing relationship. Their connection and love has always been something that I admire about the two of them, especially because through it all, they have never stopped being each other’s best friends. They are so easy to photograph together, because they’re so real.

Their little boy, Maxwell, is 6 years old and already has big dreams. It’s something else to hear him tell stories about all of his little-boy adventures, from the start of school to the start of karate and everything in between. He has the biggest heart and most amazing personality, and watching him interact with his parents is a thing of beauty.

I loved Maxwell’s smile—especially the way that it would come out in full force when he was with his parents. They were totally up for some fun shots with their little boy, making silly poses or lying in the autumn leaves or letting him climb on them.

And the pictures of Maxwell himself are amazing as well. I especially loved the one of Maxwell with his umbrella, because of the way it pops against the fall background—though the image of Maxwell lying back in the leaves with his hands behind his head perfectly captures his personality. He’s a dreamer, and he knows how to seize the moment.

Alberto & Jonna, thank you for trusting me to take your family pictures for you. That trust means a lot to me, and I hope that you will treasure the images we captured together. Here’s a sneak peek from the family portraits!

Wish Upon a Cocktail + Wish Upon a Wedding / Eau Claire, Wisconsin / Samplawski Photography / Eau Claire Wedding Photography

Love being involved with community events… our latest event, Wish Upon a Cocktail which was held at the Eau Claire Golf & Country Club in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. It was truly a beautiful venue with amazing decor! There were beautiful centerpieces and accent pieces all created by In the Woods Floral and Events. They truly did a beautiful job on making them look beautiful. Huge thank you to Eventful Occasions for helping to make this event a success… Angela did an amazing job at planning and putting it all together. Jenny, from Eau Claire Golf & Country Club, did an outstanding job on making sure all went smoothly at the venue.

Thank you to the cocktail sponsor… UV Vodka!

From the martini luge, to the samples of the Chocolate Cake UV Vodka, to the amazing food prepared by Chef Casey at the Eau Claire Golf & Country Club… to the table linens and music of Midwest Entertainment… this event was truly amazing. Bottles were being thrown, jungled, and on top of it, cocktails were pour… auctioned off with proceeds going to Wish Upon a Cocktail. Talented bar flair contestants had some true talent and some mad mixing skills… thank you Alchemixx for putting together the Bar Flair contest, very impressive!

Rain does not stop an event like this… but it sure does bring out the excitement everyone had! Amazing turnout for the first year of having Wish Upon a Cocktail right here in the Chippewa Valley.

Take a look for yourself… hope to see you next year!
