Hanson Family | Family Pictures as an Anniversary Gift from Parents

This summer I was contacted by a woman wanting to purchase a gift certificate for her daughter and son-in-law for their anniversary so they could get family pictures done. It turns out that the gift certificate was for my neighbors! What a small world. We ended up having a beautiful fall evening for their short family fall session.


The Hubred Family | Golden Hour Family Pictures with Elementary Age Children

We had a crazy May with weather. It was wet. And when it wasn’t wet, it was crazy cold or crazy hot. We ended up having to reschedule the Hubred’s family pictures two times but finally had the perfect evening for their family session.

We met at a local park during golden hour (which this time of year is around 7 p.m.). We fought off mosquitoes the entire time but seeing their full gallery you would never have guessed it. The entire family were champs with ignoring the little pests and just having fun with their family during the session.

It was great to get some siblings pictures with Collin and Rylee, but I think my favorite pictures are of mom and dad. I’m sure it’s rare that they get pictures of just the two of them and I’m glad we made time to do them.

Reese Family | Downtown Seymour WI for Urban Golden Hour Family Session

I was amazed when I met the Reese family out for their session in downtown Seymour that we could have such a variety in such a small area. We had urban family photos and steps away we had a great green space with long grass and flowers. It was fun walking around town with these four and I’m so happy I was able to get in their very quick golden hour session while I was in Seymour visit family.


Wagner Family in Downtown Seymour | Urban Family Pictures

I used to make several trips back to Seymour and the Fox Valley when I started my photography career but now that I have a studio space in Sun Prairie, I rarely make the trip. But on rare occasions I am able to squeeze in a session or two. I’m so glad I was able to meet up with the Wagner family. I’ve been photographing them for five years and it’s so much fun to watch the kids grow up. Ricki asked if we could do the family session downtown Seymour. It’s the best place for photos. So much variety in such a little space. I’m so glad she recommended it and was up for something a little different.


Schulze Family Pictures | Kindergartner and Second Grader with Parents near Madison WI

I’ve been neighbors with Kory and Jay for just over a year. Our oldest children are in the same grade at Royal Oaks elementary school. After months of bus stop chatting about how we should get together for family pictures, we finally did it. And we had the perfect evening for it when we met during the late afternoon for golden hour. It was a fun, energetic 30 minutes with these two boys.
