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 🙂

   

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.

Urban Family Session | Short session on Main Street in Sun Prairie

Last year I met Neil and his family at the Union Terrace. This year we did their short family session on Main Street in Sun Prairie. It’s always great when they come down from Appleton for their annual pictures. I’ve been photographing Neil since he was a newborn and I’m always surprised with how big he gets. He’s now 5 years old and full of energy.

Blankenhagen Family of 4 | Downtown Sun Prairie studio and urban

The Blankenhagen family had their family portrait session scheduled in the studio before the tragic explosion that occurred on July 10 in downtown Sun Prairie. My studio is one block away and was in the hot zone for a few days so we weren’t sure when we would be able to get into the studio for their session. Luckily my studio didn’t have any damage so we didn’t have to hold out too long. The session was originally scheduled for just studio, but after everything that took place I insisted on doing some photos in my favorite place in Sun Prairie…the alleyway next to my studio. It’s the perfect place to hop out of the studio and take a few urban photos and also have time to get into the studio for more classic images.

Thank you to Bekka and Dan for going along with my plan to do a little of both so we could get out and have a little fun in downtown Sun Prairie.

Schroeder Family’s Visit from Seymour to Sun Prairie | Urban Family Portrait Session

I was thrilled when Cassie contacted me to set up her family portrait session. Since I no longer go up to the Fox Valley to do sessions, she opted to drive down to me. I’ve been photographing Hunter since he was 5 months old. Now he’s 5 YEARS old and has a “new” baby brother, Lucas. Since it’s still early spring and the trees haven’t blossomed yet, we decided to do half studio and half urban on Main Street in Sun Prairie right outside my studio.

     

Best. Outtake. EVER.
For some reason Lucas thought this was a good time to try to pull out his brothers front tooth! 🙂

Extended Family Pictures | Family of four | Boxer dog in family

Brigitte and her family drove down from the Fox Valley for their extended family pictures. We were even able to get the three cousins together for a shot 🙂

I always like including grandma and uncles. So many times when everyone is together at family events we forget to take a picture but these are the ones grandmas love to have.
