1 year old milestone session with

Miss Etta joined me for a golden hour session for her first birthday. We had beautiful weather. It was fun to have her 2 year old brother and 4 year old sister. Having the full family there made it extra special and I’m glad we were able to spend the time together. I think my favorite part of the night was watching the full family of 5 walk and mom didn’t miss a beat even though she had both older kids swinging on her arms.

Mia is one! | First birthday milestone session

I was so excited when Laura contacted me this spring to set up Mia’s first birthday milestone session. They decided to drive up from Chicago to make the session super special for Mia. Our evening golden hour session may have been a tad warm and buggy, but that’s pretty much what a perfect summer evening is in Wisconsin. Mia’s expressions and smiles made me laugh through the entire session.

Landon is 1 | One Year Milestone with Parents and Grandparents

I know I always say this, but it is true…it feels like just yesterday that I did Natalie and Mike’s maternity session at their house in Sun Prairie and now their little Landon is 1 year old! It was great to go back out to their house and capture this milestone in the same location. It was even more special this time around since Natalie parents were in town and we were able to get a few pictures of Landon with his grandparents.

Chase’s 18 month old milestone session | Short family session near Sun Prairie WI

I spent the beautiful summer evening trying to keep up with 18 month old Chase during his milestone session. It was a short family session so only lasted 30 minutes, but he had me moving the entire time…and thought it was hilarious. I’m so glad his mom was gifted this session from a family friend for Christmas and I was able to meet them 6 months later. Family pictures—what a great present!

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.

Fall Family Pictures with Toddler and Baby | Photography near Sun Prairie

Just a few weeks ago I did Oliver’s “newborn” session. Since it’s fall in Wisconsin, we had to get the full family together for family pictures during a short session during golden hour. 2 year old Sam was so excited throughout the entire session while baby brother slept through the entire thing.

 

2 year old Blake with mom and dad for fall family pictures

It was last year at this time that I met this lovely family of three for the first time. Blake was turning one year old and we did a double session with family outdoor photos and a smash cake at the studio (highlights here). Blake is now two and as cute as ever. It’s fun to see how big he has gotten over the past year and I’m glad he had fun with his mom and dad during their family pictures.

Short Fall Family Session with 3 month old baby

More times than not, my family sessions in the fall consist of me running through leaves after a 2-3 year old for the afternoon. It was a nice change of pace to have this lovely family of three for a short fall family session. Miss Aisa is just 3 months old. I wasn’t sure if she would show me a smile during the session, but she loved it when mom and dad would tickle her.
