Schroeder Family’s Visit from Seymour to Sun Prairie | Urban Family Portrait Session

I was thrilled when Cassie contacted me to set up her family portrait session. Since I no longer go up to the Fox Valley to do sessions, she opted to drive down to me. I’ve been photographing Hunter since he was 5 months old. Now he’s 5 YEARS old and has a “new” baby brother, Lucas. Since it’s still early spring and the trees haven’t blossomed yet, we decided to do half studio and half urban on Main Street in Sun Prairie right outside my studio.

     

Best. Outtake. EVER.
For some reason Lucas thought this was a good time to try to pull out his brothers front tooth! 🙂

Newborn Boy Girl Twins in Studio | 1 Month Old | Newborn session

Many times if a mom reaches out to me after giving birth to their baby, it’s really hard to squeeze them into the studio in time for a newborn session since these sessions are done when baby is 4-14 days old. Lisa contacted me after her babies were born but considering they were born 6 weeks early, I had no issue getting them in on time. They were just over 1 month old when they were in the studio for their newborn session and I must say, Jonah and Ellory were amazing and such sweet hearts. Being a mother of boy/girl twins myself, I always have a soft spot for twin sessions. Jonah was the perfect big brother with his arm around his little peanut of a sister.

  

Bria is 1 year old | Older sister is turning 6! | Family Portraits in Studio

Last time I saw Nick and Jen, they were still a family of three at their maternity session. I was excited to finally meet Bria for her one year pictures in my Sun Prairie studio. Jen told me the first birthday theme was “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and once I saw a picture of her birthday outfit, I knew exactly how I wanted to set up her milestone session. Stars and Balloons!

And of course we couldn’t leave out big sister who’s turning 6 year old!

Bronsyn is One | Balloons and Smash Cake in Studio | Splash Session

At every one year old’s milestone session, I ways say it, but I really mean it…it feels like yesterday that Bronsyn was in my studio for his newborn session. His fire fighter setup was one of my favorites. And now his one year smash and splash session is one of my favorites too. This kid radiates happiness. It’s impossible to not smile when you look at him. He enjoyed every second of his session from the balloons to the cake to the bath. One of my favorites is his dad’s cameo during the smash cake. Of course Bronsyn had to share his cake with his dad.

  

Baby Boy in Studio for 6 Month Pictures | Sitting Milestone

Calvin was in the studio for his 6 month pictures. This is always one of my favorite milestones since their personality is starting to show so much. The full family of five popped in a few family pictures too. I was happy when they opted to also do a couple full family pictures in the alley right next to the studio. The kids were all great sports about the adventure, even if it was a little cold.

     

Family Portraits in Studio for Parents 30th Wedding Anniversary | Formal Family Portraits

I was contacted months ago by Ellie to set up a family session as a gift for her parents 30th wedding anniversary. We had a two day window where everyone would be in town for the holidays to squeeze in the short session. Lots and lots of laughing took place during this short session.

Happy Anniversary Barb and Jeff!

 

Baby Harrison | 8 Days Old | Newborn Portraits in Studio

I met Katie and Paul for the first time when they came for Harrison’s newborn portraits. They were traveling from the west side of Madison to Sun Prairie so I had my fingers crossed for good weather since winters in Wisconsin can get a little messy. We lucked out and all went according to plan for the early morning session on Christmas Eve. Such a sweet baby and beautiful family of three.

Being from North Dakota, Katie’s a HUGE Sioux Hockey fan so of course we had to get one with the jersey. He even had little ice skates!
