About Milwaukee Portrait Photographer

My name is Tina Erdmann and making photos makes me happy—yes, it’s as simple as that. My camera is an extension of my heart. I love spending time with families, children, people in general, and making photos that bring them joy and happiness.

I’ve been married to my husband, Tom, for 11 years. He’s been incredibly supportive of my photographic journey, and if it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be where I am right now. We have two very sweet, and spoiled, Boxer dogs named Sathi (directly translated means ‘friend’ in Nepalese) and Chandler The Bing. I shoot Canon. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to travel.

I was born in Hartford, WI, grew up in Oshkosh, WI, lived in Colorado for two years, and currently reside in Germantown, WI. I’ve traveled the world, climbing mountains along the way. I’ve trekked to Mount Everest base camp, the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, scaled Mount Fuji, got lost on Wheeler’s Peak, and have conquered the Rockies one 14er at a time. I continue to enjoy the outdoors with my husband, Tom, and our Boxers. My photographs reflect my love of the outdoors and a curiosity of all things. From landscapes and architecture, to portraiture, I strive to capture the beauty within all things large or small, crumbling and raw, or polished and contemporary.

I believe that photographs are more than a frozen moment in time; they express personality and connectedness, and capture stories. With a background in photojournalism, I specialize in capturing your family story, using natural light, in a natural setting. Instead of a studio and a backdrop, I like to meet on location, at your favorite place—whether it be a park, downtown, the lakefront, or your home—wherever that special place is for you and your loved ones, to take photos that tell the story of your life.
