40th Wedding Anniversary Gift | Extended Family Session at Golden Hour Near Sun Prairie

It was a beautiful summer evening when I met the Meyer family out for their extended family session. Erik had contacted me months to set up this session as a gift for his parents 40th wedding anniversary. Full family picture are always great ideas for gifts even if the logistics of getting multiple family schedules to line up is a little tricky. This is a gift grandma and grandpa will treasure forever. And something the children will love to look back on.

Baby Coming Soon | Maternity Session with Family Dog | Golden Hour

When Sarah contacted me about doing her maternity session she mentioned wanting to include their dog in some of the pictures. I’m not going to lie, I was nervous. This was my first time incorporating a dog into a maternity session. I’ve had countless dogs during family sessions, but not a maternity session. I wanted to make sure I captured their dogs personality for them. Gus was a rockstar during the session and I’m so glad they brought him. I can’t wait to meet their baby girl in a couple months!

Schommer Family | Brothers | Golden Hour in field near Sun Prairie WI

The Schommer family drove down from Weston (2 hours one-way) for their fall family pictures. They said it’s worth the drive because they know they will have fun AND get nice family pictures at the same time. I had a blast goofing around for an hour during their standard session. The weather (and light!) was beautiful! Thank you for making the trip down to see me.

Brothers in Fall Family Pictures | 18 months and 3 years old | Lake Mills

Melissa and Matt drove from Lake Mills for their fall family session with their two young boys. At first their 3 year old wasn’t too sure about me but he warmed up quickly. I wasn’t so lucky with his 18 month old little brother but that’s to be expected at that age. We had so much fun during their short session.

Family of Four | Conservancy near Sun Prairie | 7 year old and 9 year old

This family has had my phone number for 2 years but life kept getting in the way and they never made the call to schedule a session. I’m so glad they finally connected with me so we could get some great family pictures. These were two of the most well-behaved, polite and fun kids I’ve ever met. Such a fun session.

Snowy Maternity Session in Sun Prairie WI | Couple Packers vs Bears | Pittsburgh Penguins vs Chicago Blackhawks

Lindsey and Brandon are expecting their first baby boy next month and we had the perfect winter Wisconsin weather for their maternity session. The snow was great and it wasn’t too cold. I had a great time getting to know these two and hear all of their sports rivalry stories being that Lindsey is a Bears and Blackhawks fan and Brandon is a Packers and Penguins fan. It will be interesting to see what teams their little boy cheers for when he gets older.
