I haven’t seen Madelynn since she was 4 months old and I did a fall family session with her family. It was fun that she came into the Sun Prairie studio for her first birthday milestone. Her mom went all out with the great decorations for her Minnie Mouse theme. So cute! This girl was not a fan of getting messy and preferred to eat the cake with a spoon!
Brynnley’s mom wanted both outdoor fall family pictures and a smash cake session for Brynnley so we ended up meeting up twice within 10 days. Even though they had to drive up to Sun Prairie from Edgerton each time, it was worth it. Both sessions went perfectly and it didn’t push this 1 year old too far for either session. I think if we tried to do both in one day that it would have been too much for her and the smash cake wouldn’t have gone nearly as perfect as it did.
I loved her pearls and polka dots. She matched her cake perfectly and was a pro with it. I always start the smash cake session with parents on the side and tell them that they are on deck for when the baby pushes the cake away but Brynnley did the exact opposite and pulled it towards herself. She was a pro! She loved her cake but loved the “splash” part of the session even more when she got a bubble bath to clean up at the end.
Newborn session are becoming more and more common in the studio these days and I’m loving. It’s truly the specialty area of photography that I love. There is something special about being with parents (be it brand new or experienced), hearing their story and being able to capture moments of their family with their tiny baby that makes my heart sing. I also love the challenge a newborn baby brings and the amount of patience it takes to get each pose perfect. My style is simple and classic. Yes, adding a little color is needed for some setups and having a baby snuggle with a tiny stuffed animal is the perfect pair.
This session with 8 day old Kaylee was a dream. She was sleepy and comfy the entire time and we were able to get the perfect gallery for her mom and dad.
I’ve been photographing Sylvia since she was 6 months old. One of her pictures from her 6 month session is still an all time favorite of mine and hangs in the studio window on Main Street in Sun Prairie. She joined me in the studio with her older brother for a short milestone session for her 3rd birthday! The pictures of siblings laughing together are always my favorite.
Last time I saw these two they were sharing Sylvia’s smash cake for her one year old milestone session. She came into the new studio for her two year pictures and wore the cutest pink tutu. The two balloons I had ready for her matched perfectly. Older brother Caleb also joined during the session to get some brother/sister pictures and his own 7 year pictures.
Katie and Shannon came into my studio with Miss Finley on Father’s Day. What a treat for Shannon’s first father’s day. It was so sweet to see these two new parents together with their newborn baby girl.
I met Miss Madison for her 6 month short session in the studio. She came in ready for spring! Of course I had to have mom jump in for a few photos with her.
It’s hard to believe that Sarah is 2 years old. It feels like just yesterday we were doing her smash cake session. She did perfect during her short session in the studio. It’s amazing how much this girl can talk! And boy is she smart.
