Madelynn is turning 1 | Minnie Themed Smash Cake

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!

Cole is ONE! Celebrate with a smash cake and end with a SPLASH!

Cole joined me in the studio for his 1 year old milestone session with a smash cake. His mom went all out with decorations and ended up dropping them off ahead of time so I had plenty of time to setup before they arrived. This worked out well since Cole is on the GO! He’s fast and would have quickly lost interest if I made him wait to set up the background. His favorite part was the SPLASH at the end.

Asa and Israel | Milestone Session with Brothers

It’s been a year since I’ve seen these two boys. (Here’s Asa’s 1 year milestone session.) It was fun to have 2 year old Asa and 3 year old Israel back in the studio. Israel is really turning into quite the little model and ham in front of the camera. Of course I needed to get a couple action shots of these boys so we had a jumping contest at the end.

Short Milestone Studio Session | 6 Month Old Conway

I often suggest my “short” sessions for milestone sessions. The 30 minutes is the perfect length to get some family pictures and some individual pictures of your child. The parents than get to select their 10 favorite images to receive from the gallery (or opt to up-grade and purchase the entire thing for a nominal fee).

Here’s an example of the 10 images Conway’s parents selected from their gallery of 33.


Sylvia is 3 years old! | Studio milestone session with sibling

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.

Patrick and Olivia | Twin 6 month milestone session in studio

I’ve only photographed a handful of weddings, one of which was for Brad & Leslie (more here). I was thrilled when they drove down to my Sun Prairie studio from Seymour 2.5 years later for a family session with their twins Patrick and Olivia. I’m a mom of 8 year old boy/girl twins myself so twin sessions are always near to my heart.

Here are just a few of my favorites from their 6 month old milestone session.
