Landon is 1 Year Old | Smash Cake in Studio

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! ūüôā We ended the session getting cleaned up in the bubble bath.

Happy Birthday Landon!

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!

Uthara is one year old | Milestone session in studio with smash cake

It was fun to celebrate¬†Uthara’s 1st birthday as a milestone session in the studio. At first she wasn’t sure what to think about the studio but she warmed up just enough for me to see her beautiful smile. Her favorite thing to do is have mom or dad bounce her…and snuggle…lots and lots of snuggles. So sweet!

Harutaka is 1 | Milestone session at Memorial Union Terrace

I spent the morning at the Memorial Union Terrace to celebrate¬†Harutaka’s 1st birthday. For this special milestone session, his mom asked to do it at the terrace.¬†Harutaka’s dad is a PhD studio at Madison and they’ve lived here a couple years and want to make sure they remember all of their special spots they enjoy in the city. The terrace is always a favorite of mine too since it’s so colorful, no matter what (… well, as long as the table and chairs are out).

Happy 1st Birthday Harutaka! You are the cutest little sailor around.

Lewitzke Family Maternity Session | Overcast Golden Hour

It was a pleasure meeting Katie and her family of four (soon-to-be 5) for their family maternity session. The skies were overcast but we didn’t let that spoil our fun. I’m not going to lie, doing a family maternity session with a 1 year old, 2 year old AND family dog was no easy task but the Lewitzke family was so laid back and just wanting to have fun that it worked out perfectly. We were able to get some great posed family maternity pictures and the gallery also has several fantastic outtakes (like that last one) that shows real life and are too much fun not to include in the gallery.


Delaney is ONE! | 1 Year Milestone with Smash Cake and Tub Splash

It’s hard to believe Delaney is 1 year old. It feels like her newborn session just happened yesterday. She joined me in the studio with mom and dad. After a few family portraits, we had a WILD ONE themed smash cake. She loved every part of the cake and even stayed for a little splash in the studio tub.
