Milwaukee Family Photographer

Family

Photographing families in locations near me in Milwaukee, WI and far off destinations.

Forte Films and Stills is a Milwaukee family photographer rooted in preserving life’s most precious moments.  My goal is to achieve this in the most authentic and organic way possible.  I want to create beautiful pieces for your home and family to be cherished for years to come. 

“We had a great experience with Matt at Forte Films and Stills. I had been following his work on Facebook and Instagram and was always impressed with his work. I knew when it came time to having our family pictures taken he would not disappoint. He responded quickly, set a date, gave us a time and location to meet him at and he even supplied the bug spray. He made us all very comfortable during the shoot and knew exactly what to do to produce real, genuine smiles. When we saw our finished gallery I was blown away with every picture. I loved every single one. What great keepsakes we have. We will definitely be going back to him in the future and will recommend him to all of our family and friends.” – M Family
“Thank you, Matt, for a very fun and easy session!” – H Family

WHY I LOVE BEING A MILWAUKEE FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

The connection families share.

Coming from a tight knit family of six, I understand the connection and love families share.  It gives me so much joy photographing families in ways that show off this connection and present it in a visual and tangible way.

Working with people of all ages.

Being able to meet and work with so many different people is one of my favorite parts of being a family photographer.  Whether I’m working in my own community here in Milwaukee, or traveling to different states, meeting all the different families is such a special privilege.  I love to work with kids of all ages, but also enjoy shooting photos of adult families.

Family photos are memories.

As we get older and memories start to fade, there is no greater gift than being able to look back at old memories that bring you back to an exact moment in time.  The emotions and memories that can be preserved by looking at photographs are treasures that all people hold close to their heart.

A different approach to family photography.

My family photo shoots may not be what you are used to, or what you expect.  Since I am focused on showing off real organic connection, we do less of the look and smile at the camera and more of your family interacting with each other.  This involves plenty of games and prompts to encourage movement, interaction, and real smiles.  Adding that into my foundation photography strategy of amazing light and composition, creates a unique but consistent look that you will love not only today but for years to come.
