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.
Every year I donate a session or two to the Royal Oaks Rocket Run which is their annual school fundraiser. When the kids ask for sponsors to support them running laps for 20 minutes. They get a chance to win a prize and I find that offering a family session is the least I can do for the school. It’s fun to get to meet the families that win the prize but this time I already knew Will and his family. It turned out they are my neighbors! It was too much fun to get them in the studio for a family session. We even snuck out in the cold and got a few in the alleyway next to the studio.
It was fun to spend the morning with this sweet family. Little 5 month old Aila was a treat! Her big smile lite up the room. She is just starting to sit so it was nice to capture this milestone for her. This session was actually a gift from the mom’s co-workers when she had Aila. What a great idea!
Brynnley’s mom wanted both outdoor fall family pictures and a smash cake session for Brynnley so we ended up meeting up twice within 10 days. Even though they had to drive up to Sun Prairie from Edgerton each time, it was worth it. Both sessions went perfectly and it didn’t push this 1 year old too far for either session. I think if we tried to do both in one day that it would have been too much for her and the smash cake wouldn’t have gone nearly as perfect as it did.
I loved her pearls and polka dots. She matched her cake perfectly and was a pro with it. I always start the smash cake session with parents on the side and tell them that they are on deck for when the baby pushes the cake away but Brynnley did the exact opposite and pulled it towards herself. She was a pro! She loved her cake but loved the “splash” part of the session even more when she got a bubble bath to clean up at the end.
It’s been a year since I’ve seen these two boys. (Here’s Asa’s 1 year milestone session.) It was fun to have 2 year old Asa and 3 year old Israel back in the studio. Israel is really turning into quite the little model and ham in front of the camera. Of course I needed to get a couple action shots of these boys so we had a jumping contest at the end.
This family just keeps getting cuter and cuter. I remember the first time I met Jack two years ago for their fall family pictures. He was the sweetest 3 year old there was. Now he’s 5 years old and the best big brother to little Annabelle.
We had so much fun during their 30 minute session. My favorite part was when the kids were getting pulled on the quilt and Jack asked if his little sister could be removed from the quilt because he thought it would be more fun without worry about holding onto her 🙂
