Reader Family | Beautifully Wet and Overcast Fall Evening for fun family pictures

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.

Sammy is ONE! | Outside first birthday milestone session with baseball smash cake

It’s been great to watch Sammy grow over the last year. It feels like just yesterday he was in the studio doing his newborn pictures with his stuffed Bucky Badger. He now graduated from my belly to baby group of RMP VIPs. We celebrated his first birthday at the park during golden hour for a family session plus a baseball theme smash cake that his mom made!

 

Golden Hour Maternity Session | Dan and Kasia expecting twins!

After almost 7 years of doing photography, I rarely get nervous anymore before sessions. But I found myself nervous for tonight’s maternity session which was surprising since it was for close friends. I knew this session meant so much to these two and is something they’ve been dream about for years. I wanted it to be perfect. Mother nature was on my side and we ended up having a magical evening. I’m beyond happy for these two and cannot wait to have our kids grow up together.

     

Smedema Family Portraits with young brothers | Sun Prairie Photographer

This was my first time meeting the Smedema family but it felt like I knew them for years. Their two young boys were so much fun and warmed right up to me right away. They made being a photographer easy and laughed at all my corny jokes. We had the perfect mix of formally posed and silly candid family portraits. And to think, all of this happened during a short family portrait session and they were in and out within 30 minutes.
