For more than 35 years, the professional photographers at Mortensen Portrait Design have framed personal moments with timeless elegance. In the interest of honoring each client's unique aesthetic, the staff engages subjects during every step of the portrait process. Their catalogue of studio backgrounds and sets accommodates high-school seniors, family groups, children, and pets, whose images are always given the classical treatment: technicians bond the images individually to canvas or print them with a textured finish, then apply a coat of clear glaze. The resulting product befits most any mantelpiece perch or sophisticated vehicle, where it can function as a fancy upgrade from a rearview mirror.

The studio's child-friendly services benefit its customers and the community as a whole. Fairy portraits—shot in an onsite garden to reduce run-ins with feral toadstools—bestow youngsters with shimmery wings for a charming keepsake. Additionally, during their annual Cute Kids Portrait Contest, more than $10,000 in session payments, orders, and votes go to the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer Fund.

The stock ranges from plush pillowtops to firm sets, both capable of supporting healthy sleeping patterns and cutthroat pillow fights for years to come.

Q&A with the Owner / President

What is the one feature of your business that you're most proud of?

When you walk into Lasertag Adventure, you are entering another world. Our facility is heavily themed with wall-to-ceiling murals including our Magma Mania arcade with a phenomenal black-light volcanic theme. Our laser-tag arena has multiple levels of jungle ruins that allow your imagination to soar as you embark on your adventure.

Have you ever been a patron of your own business? If so, what was the most enjoyable part?

Yes. I love that we can provide a great entertainment experience for guests of all ages. Children, parents, and grandparents all have a smile on their face when they finish playing laser tag.

As the old adage says, "Stuff happens." What training do you and your staff have to stay ahead of the unexpected?

Every position at Lasertag Adventure includes detailed training to ensure we are proving our guests with a great experience. [Providing a] safe environment, safe activities, and enthusiastic fun are critical aspects of our training.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

[We are] Milwaukee?s first multi-level laser-tag arena. A TV sitcom pilot, Mediocracy, was filmed on-location at Lasertag Adventure in 2012. Our recent expansion added trampoline dodgeball, mini bowling, a laser maze, a larger arcade, an observation deck, and a pizza restaurant.
