Autumn Family Portraits in Sun Prairie | Family of four

Fall is always very busy for photography. The leaves are changing colors, temperatures are cooling down and everyone wants to get in family portraits. My fall scheduled started to fill up in the spring so before I knew it, I had no standard family sessions available. I only had openings for short session which are perfect for fall family pictures. These sessions are local in Sun Prairie and 25 minutes. For toddlers, this is the perfect amount of time. 1-3 year olds are always on the go and doing an hour of family pictures is not their idea of fun. At the end of the session, the parents get to select 15 photos to receive. It’s always fun to see which ones they select. Here are just a few of a recent short session I did. We met in the early hours on a Sunday morning. I love the light this time of day and more times than not, the kids are in super happy moods too because they aren’t exhausted from all of the days activities.

Newborn Baby Boy Taylor | 11 Days Old in Studio with Mom and Dad

Little baby Taylor surprised their mom and dad by arriving several weeks early. Luckily we had Jenny & Cory’s maternity session when we did since he arrived just a couple weeks later. At just 11 days old, he came into the studio and was a rockstar. Super sweet and always wanting to snuggle.

Newborn Baby Boy in Studio with Siblings | 5 day old Jordy

This family of five came into the studio for baby Jordy’s newborn photos. Big sister and big brother are just five and three years old but they are more than prepared for their little brother and were on their best behavior. All three together was adorable to watch. It was such a beautiful day in Sun Prairie that we stepped out of the studio and took a couple family photos in the alleyway next to the studio.

Mary | High School Senior | Sun Prairie High Class of 2018 | Urban & Nature

I had so much fun hanging out with Mary, her sister and her mom for Mary’s high school senior portrait session. We traveled around Sun Prairie to squeeze in as many locations as possible. I can’t pick which one is my favorite. Between downtown Sun Prairie to the High School to a local park….they all looked so different. Mary’s prom dress was to die for in the wildflower field though. So beautiful.


Alicia | Sun Prairie Class of 2018 | Senior Portraits on Main Street

I don’t do many high school senior sessions a year, but when I do them, I always have a blast. I recently had Alicia’s tiny baby sister in the studio for a newborn session. It was a lot of fun hanging out with her for the afternoon in Sun Prairie. Her pink Converse shoes were my favorite final touches that brought her outfit together. Loved it!


Annual Family Pictures | Farm Park | Family of four with two boys

This was my third time photographing these brothers over the last month. They had a grandparents session with each of their grandparents and now I met them for their family session that included mom and dad. I’ve been photographing this family for 6 years and I think this was my favorite session to date. Lots of energy and lots of laughs. Exactly how every family session should be.

Bria is 18 Months Old | Urban Family Session in on Main Street in Sun Prairie

A huge perk of being a photographer is that your friends from college would drive from Stevens Point for their daughter’s 18 month old photos. This time we switched things up for the Lindsey family and took a stroll down Main Street in Sun Prairie. We even had a little dance-off in Cannery Square. But the best part was Bria’s laugh! That girl knows how to laugh. Check out the picture of them walking down Main Street. She LOVED it!

Newborn Baby Boy Jacob | 4 Days Old in Studio in Downtown Sun Prairie WI

Baby Jacob joined me in the studio for his short newborn session at just four days old. Before the session, his mom mentioned she wanted his photos to have a “soft, simple look.” These are by far my favorite type of sessions and is always the style I go for. I think we hit the nail on the head with this one. I love that he even flashed me a quick smile when he was all wrapped up in white.

Teagan | 12 Day Old | Newborn Baby Pictures in Sun Prairie Studio with Family

Little newborn Teagan was less than 2 weeks old when she joined me in the studio for her baby pictures. She was born to wear purple, just like her almost 3 year old big sister. I also loved the simplicity of her sleeping between poses so of course I had to capture that in black and white.
