For the third year running, Rachel Manzke Photography made the best maternity photographers in the Madison area list on Expertise.com. It’s an honor to be listed with such talented photographers in my area and I’m thrilled I could be listed as one of the Sun Prairie Photographers on the list of best maternity photographers in Madison for 2019!
Little baby Nash came into the studio for short newborn session at just 6 days old. His parents opted to do a short newborn session which meant we just focused on Nash and didn’t do any pictures with the parents. It was perfect for them so they could sit back and relax and still get beautiful pictures of their baby to cherish forever.
Nash’s mom asked for natural and clean set-ups for him. These are always my favorite. We started with bright white tucked in poses and then went to a couple set-ups to wrap him up when he woke up. His little smirk while in the little hammock was perfect timing.
Maddux joined me in the studio for his 1 year milestone session. He was all smiles, that is until we gave him cake. Apparently he is not a fan of cake but we made up for it with a big SPLASH at the end with a bubble bath. He loved every minute of the bath.
Madeline joined me in the studio just shy of 2 weeks old. She surprised her parents with an early arrival and is the cutest little 5 1/2 lb newborn baby girl. We did lots of soft pinks during her session and since we were just a couple weeks before Valentine days I decided to do a couple cute heart set-ups for this rainbow baby.
Landon came into the studio for his 1 year milestone session. We did a few individual portraits before letting him dive into his cake. He wasn’t sure what to do with it until we gave him a spoon! 🙂 We ended the session getting cleaned up in the bubble bath.
Happy Birthday Landon!
It’s been fun to watch Ethan get bigger. He’s now 8 months old and came into the studio with his mom and dad. The weather this December was so mild that we even went out into the alleyway by the studio for a couple outdoor pictures with the family.
Little 9 day old Lyla came into the studio with her soon-to-be 2 year old big brother. It was fun to meet this family of four and capture this time special time for them.
Kaylani joined me in the studio for her 1st birthday milestone session. We had a lot of fun playing on the couch with her mom and dad. Then we switched things up so she could show me her birthday tutu.
It felt like just yesterday that I met Quintin for his newborn session. Hard to believe he is now one year old. He joined me in the studio (and out on main street) for his milestone session with a smash cake. The smash cake session was “snow” themed!
Cole joined me in the studio for his 1 year old milestone session with a smash cake. His mom went all out with decorations and ended up dropping them off ahead of time so I had plenty of time to setup before they arrived. This worked out well since Cole is on the GO! He’s fast and would have quickly lost interest if I made him wait to set up the background. His favorite part was the SPLASH at the end.
