Royal Oaks Rocket Run Winner | Family of Four Studio Portraits

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.

  

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 🙂

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!

Shefchik Family | Annual family pictures near Sun Prairie

I originally was planning to meet the Shefchik family for their annual family pictures tomorrow but I was watching the forecast and decided it was looking a little too iffy for this weekend and asked them if they could meet me out earlier in the week. We lucked out and ended up having a fairly warm fall evening for their short session. Yes, it was overcast, but the fall calls still popped through every picture. By the end of their session it was getting pretty dark and I am in love with the moodiness of the pictures.
