Maxwell is One Year Old | Short milestone session outside at park with parents

I met Maxwell for the first time during my Dream Big Little One mini sessions earlier this year. He was just 5 months old but stole my heart. He is super adorable and sweet. I was thrilled when mom decided to come back for a short milestone session this fall for his one year pictures.

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!

Vivian is One Year Old | Studio Smash Cake | Purple & Butterflies

Smash cake sessions are always fun and challenging at the same time. Many times the one year old child isn’t fond of the cake but it’s so fun to watch them experience it, many times for the first time in their life. Vivian is turning 1 in a couple weeks and mom brought in a beautiful homemade cake. It had butterflies to match the ones she brought in for the purple background. Everything came together perfectly and turned out super cute.


Gordon is 1 Year Old | Milestone Pictures | Big Sister is Turning 3 years old | annual fall family pictures

I had this milestone session scheduled for months with Amy. I knew we would be taking a risk scheduling an outdoor session in November but getting in Gordon’s 1 year and Anne’s 3 year old pictures were going to happen. Thankfully it was beautiful for their morning family session. I can’t believe how big Anne is getting. I still remember the first time I met her when she was just a few months old. She was not a fan of me and all my loud, silly noises. I’ve learned to tone down my noise level when around her but this time she was asking to squeak my toys and she loved every part of it. Thank you to Amy and Phil who continue to make the trip to see me. I know driving 90 minutes one way from the Fox Valley isn’t the easiest at time, but it’s always great to see you and your fantastic kids!

Bennett is One | Milestone 1 year session with smash cake | Rainbow Theme

After a year of waiting, I finally got to meet Bennett. He’s adorable and big sister Alex is great with him. I’m so glad they were able to swing down to Sun Prairie while vacationing in Wisconsin Dells to do his 1 year pictures with smash. We even ended with a fun splash session. I love the rainbow cake mom made and brought. I’m glad it made it all the way from Green Bay in one piece!
