It’s always a good time to head out to Lone Rock, WI and catch up with my friends Lori and Cody during their annual family portraits. I think we’ve been doing this for 9 years and have only had 1 or 2 years of great weather. This year was light rain and overcast but we didn’t let that stop us. We first took pictures around their little slice of heaven on Bear Vale Farm. This year was extra special because they took me to their new hemp field. What a sight to see…and smell! All of Cody’s hard work is really coming together with this year’s harvest. It’s very exciting to see it all come together.
This family just keeps getting cuter and cuter. I remember the first time I met Jack two years ago for their fall family pictures. He was the sweetest 3 year old there was. Now he’s 5 years old and the best big brother to little Annabelle.
We had so much fun during their 30 minute session. My favorite part was when the kids were getting pulled on the quilt and Jack asked if his little sister could be removed from the quilt because he thought it would be more fun without worry about holding onto her 🙂
I originally was planning to meet the Shefchik family for their annual family pictures tomorrow but I was watching the forecast and decided it was looking a little too iffy for this weekend and asked them if they could meet me out earlier in the week. We lucked out and ended up having a fairly warm fall evening for their short session. Yes, it was overcast, but the fall calls still popped through every picture. By the end of their session it was getting pretty dark and I am in love with the moodiness of the pictures.
The Hager family gifted this extended family session to grandma for a birthday present. I can’t think of a better gift for a grandma than extended family pictures. Having pictures with the full family and then also ones with just the grand kids is something that this grandma will never forget.
It was fun to meet the Hager family out for their annual family portrait session. It was a cool and overcast evening this fall but at least we didn’t have rain.
This fall in Wisconsin sure has been a rough one. It went from unimaginable amount of mosquitoes to raining non-stop. Thank goodness the Reader family trusted me when I told them we should keep our schedule session time even though it was raining most the day. The trees are just starting to turn here in Sun Prairie and we ended up having a fun…wet feet…evening at the park. Little 2 year old Evie wasn’t always sure about the chill in the air, but held it together for so many fun family shots. I think she was thankful that my family sessions in the fall are only 30-minutes.
It was a pleasure meeting Katie and her family of four (soon-to-be 5) for their family maternity session. The skies were overcast but we didn’t let that spoil our fun. I’m not going to lie, doing a family maternity session with a 1 year old, 2 year old AND family dog was no easy task but the Lewitzke family was so laid back and just wanting to have fun that it worked out perfectly. We were able to get some great posed family maternity pictures and the gallery also has several fantastic outtakes (like that last one) that shows real life and are too much fun not to include in the gallery.
