Brynnley’s Pearls, Pink, and Polka Dot Smash Cake Session

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.

Asa and Israel | Milestone Session with Brothers

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.

Boeke Family Annual Fall Pictures

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 🙂

   

Giese Family of 5 | At the studio and urban downtown Sun Prairie

Early November is the perfect time to get some pictures inside and some pictures outside. That is exactly what the Giese family opted to do on their chilly November afternoon. I wasn’t sure if they would all fit on the studio couch but they did! It was fun to get the 4 year old twins in the studio. It’s been 2 years since I’ve seen them. Last time I went out to their house in Oregon and they were less than impressed with me at moments 🙂

Willa is One! Fall Themed Smash Cake Session

We started Willa’s 1 year old milestone session with some pictures with big sister and mom. Then we got to the good part….the fall themed smash cake! At first she wasn’t sure what to do with the cake and wasn’t too interested but once she got a taste, she dove in and ate it up! I loved that mom brought in a plain white cake and we decorated it with real flowers. The pop of fall colors was beautiful and it wasn’t until the very end that Willa realized they could come off the cake and started to share them with me and her mama.


Hineline Family | fall family pictures with big kids

So many of my families that come in for their annual family pictures have little kids. It seems that once kids reach age 6 or 7 that annual family pictures dwindle away. I love that the Hineline family comes back every year for their family pictures, even if they have “big kids” now. They will be able to look back and see how the boys grew from year to year. And we still have a lot of fun 🙂

 

Brynnley is one! Fall family pictures

It was Brynnley’s golden birthday the day we met for their outdoor family session so I made a point to run to the studio and fill up 1 golden balloon for her before heading to the park. At first she wasn’t too sure on what to do with it but eventually she was all smiles and had a great time with her mom and dad. She’ll be in the studio in a couple days for her smash cake session!
