Everly is One Year Old | Milestone short session outside | Dawn Golden Hour

It was a beautiful October morning when I met Miss Everly out for her milestone short session. As with many 1 year olds, she was a little shy with her smile but we managed to get a few big ones. Her mom dressed her perfectly. I loved everything down to her mustard colored leggings! Perfect for a fall baby.


Manzke Family Photos at Memorial Union Terrace | Fall in Wisconsin with UW-Madison Alumni

I’m starting to think I should require any UW-Madison alumni to do their family photos at least once at Memorial Union Terrace. If I do that, I’ll also have to require that they get their early…like crazy early…in order to get some photos as perfect as what we did for my brother’s family. We lucked at that their October session was not only super early on a Sunday morning in October, but was also forecast to be a beautiful day so the cleaning crews had already come out and set everything up perfectly for us. We practically had the place to ourselves. I couldn’t have asked for a better morning to spend with my three year old nephew.


Fiona is 1 Year Old | Milestone session with family including dog

A first birthday is always a special milestone session for families. The Ristow family was no different and even wanted to make sure their family dog was part of the celebration. It was going to be a very warm day in Sun Prairie the day we had the session scheduled so it was great we beat the heat with a start time at 8am. Happy Birthday Fiona!
