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!

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.

Larkworthy Family | Golden hour at Conservancy with 8 month old baby girl

I’ve been neighbors with Julia and Brian for three years and I was thrilled when they asked me to do their family pictures. I was even more thrill when they agreed to do an evening session so we could catch golden hour. The timeslot doesn’t always work well with small children but when parents can swing it, I highly recommend it. Even their family dog joined us!

Witalison Family | Door County | Maria is 2 months old

Door County is usually out of my travel area but when roommates from college (and actually I’ve known Julie since I was 6 year old) invite my family up for the weekend I knew I needed to sneak in a quick session with their new family of four. Little Maria is 2 months old and smiling up a storm. It was also fun to watch Ella and my Wyatt play together since they are only two months apart.

Skyler agreed to a mini photo shoot as long as he could have one in front of a hay bale. As you can see, everyone got what they wanted.
