McKinlee | Newborn baby girl with big sister

I met the Temby family 2 years ago when I photographed their first daughter’s newborn portraits. I was so excited to get contacted by Christine’s sister this past winter. She wanted to purchase a newborn session as a Christmas gift for her sister. Best idea, ever!

Miss McKinlee joined the family this summer and is the sweetest. Her big sister is so proud and such a great little helper. I’m so glad we got to catch up and see this family again.

Landon is 1 | One Year Milestone with Parents and Grandparents

I know I always say this, but it is true…it feels like just yesterday that I did Natalie and Mike’s maternity session at their house in Sun Prairie and now their little Landon is 1 year old! It was great to go back out to their house and capture this milestone in the same location. It was even more special this time around since Natalie parents were in town and we were able to get a few pictures of Landon with his grandparents.

Chase’s 18 month old milestone session | Short family session near Sun Prairie WI

I spent the beautiful summer evening trying to keep up with 18 month old Chase during his milestone session. It was a short family session so only lasted 30 minutes, but he had me moving the entire time…and thought it was hilarious. I’m so glad his mom was gifted this session from a family friend for Christmas and I was able to meet them 6 months later. Family pictures—what a great present!

Harutaka is 1 | Milestone session at Memorial Union Terrace

I spent the morning at the Memorial Union Terrace to celebrate Harutaka’s 1st birthday. For this special milestone session, his mom asked to do it at the terrace. Harutaka’s dad is a PhD studio at Madison and they’ve lived here a couple years and want to make sure they remember all of their special spots they enjoy in the city. The terrace is always a favorite of mine too since it’s so colorful, no matter what (… well, as long as the table and chairs are out).

Happy 1st Birthday Harutaka! You are the cutest little sailor around.

Lewitzke Family Maternity Session | Overcast Golden Hour

It was a pleasure meeting Katie and her family of four (soon-to-be 5) for their family maternity session. The skies were overcast but we didn’t let that spoil our fun. I’m not going to lie, doing a family maternity session with a 1 year old, 2 year old AND family dog was no easy task but the Lewitzke family was so laid back and just wanting to have fun that it worked out perfectly. We were able to get some great posed family maternity pictures and the gallery also has several fantastic outtakes (like that last one) that shows real life and are too much fun not to include in the gallery.
