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 ūüôā


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.

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.


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.

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 ūüôā

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.
