McKinlee | Newborn baby girl with big sister

I met the Temby family 2 years ago when I photographed their first daughter’s newborn portraits. I was so excited to get contacted by Christine’s sister this past winter. She wanted to purchase a newborn session as a Christmas gift for her sister. Best idea, ever!

Miss McKinlee joined the family this summer and is the sweetest. Her big sister is so proud and such a great little helper. I’m so glad we got to catch up and see this family again.

Theodore is ONE | Smash Cake & Splash in Bubble Bath Studio Session

Theodore is turning one and had his milestone session with cake and a bubble bath. I love the way his whipped cream frosting cake made a complete mess. He loved ever part of it. He had a hard time deciding if he wanted to eat cake or play with balloons so at points he was doing both. His quick bath at the end was the perfect way to clean him up and get some super cute pictures at the same time.


Everly Newborn Pictures | 13 days old | Corn & Pumpkin Theme for Fall | Studio

This newborn session was the last session in my in-home studio. Since meeting Miss Everly, I have moved into my studio space on Main Street in Sun Prairie. I’m glad I was able to sneak her into the studio before things got a little hectic with the move.

When Everly’s mom contacted me about the newborn pictures, she mentioned how she was being born into a family of popcorn farmers and they wanted to incorporate that into one of the set-ups. I’m so glad they thought of bringing the corn. The setup turned out super cute.

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!

Newborn baby boy | Charlie at 14 days old | Studio Sun Prairie WI

Sweet Charlie arrived 4 weeks early but was ready for his entrance into the world. He rocked his newborn studio session at 14 days old. I don’t think I saw his eyes once. Mom requested simple and classic photos with the use of little hats and stuffed animals when appropriate. I’m always getting excited when that’s the request from parents since that is the exact style I strive for in every session.

11 Day Old Newborn Pictures of Baby Boy | Emerson | Barn wood in Studio

Andrea and Mitchell were a little surprised when baby Emerson decided to arrive early. His due date isn’t until tomorrow but this healthy, little baby knew he was ready. I’m so glad I was able to squeeze in their newborn pictures during the fall busy season. Mom and dad requested simple, neutral setups and Emerson rocked every one of them.
