The Hubred Family | Golden Hour Family Pictures with Elementary Age Children

We had a crazy May with weather. It was wet. And when it wasn’t wet, it was crazy cold or crazy hot. We ended up having to reschedule the Hubred’s family pictures two times but finally had the perfect evening for their family session.

We met at a local park during golden hour (which this time of year is around 7 p.m.). We fought off mosquitoes the entire time but seeing their full gallery you would never have guessed it. The entire family were champs with ignoring the little pests and just having fun with their family during the session.

It was great to get some siblings pictures with Collin and Rylee, but I think my favorite pictures are of mom and dad. I’m sure it’s rare that they get pictures of just the two of them and I’m glad we made time to do them.

Annual Family Pictures with Two School-Aged Boys | Sun Prairie Family Photographer

This was the 3rd year that I met the Shefchik family out for fall family pictures (2016 family pictures | 2015 family pictures). You can’t tell it by the pictures, but it was so chilly that we actually saw snow flakes during their short family session. It was a fun evening of laughing and goofing around. I’m glad I could keep you moving to keep warm. It was a battle to keep their hands out of their sleeves, but they did awesome and didn’t complain once that they were cold because they were too busy having fun.


Schommer Family | Brothers | Golden Hour in field near Sun Prairie WI

The Schommer family drove down from Weston (2 hours one-way) for their fall family pictures. They said it’s worth the drive because they know they will have fun AND get nice family pictures at the same time. I had a blast goofing around for an hour during their standard session. The weather (and light!) was beautiful! Thank you for making the trip down to see me.

6 Month Old Baby Girl Milestone Pictures | UW Arboretum | Family of Four | Madison WI

I met Kelly and her family when I did an extended family session for them last year as a surprise for her mother-in-law who lives in Madison. Kelly lives in Chicago so I wasn’t expecting to see them again but I was so happy when Kelly contacted me to squeeze in a 6 month short session for her baby girl when they were planning to be up in the area for a family visit. Luckily the rain held off and we met for their early morning session at the UW Arboretum at 8 a.m. One perk about going to the arb so early in the morning is you get to see all the wild turkeys. Their 2 year old son thought that was pretty neat.

Two Year Old Pictures at Park | Windsor WI | Milestone Short Session

It’s hard to believe my nephew is already two. My brother and his family met me out for a very quick, wet and buggy session but you would never guess with the smiles on their faces. What troopers.

I also love that he brought his favorite stuffed animal. The snuggles with Bobbes  is too cute!

Reese Family | Downtown Sun Prairie | Urban family of 6

I’ve known Chris and Sara since college. My husband actually lived with Chris for a year. They were perfect in college …. and fast forward 15 years…they are still perfect that has multiplied over and over again with their family of six. I’m so happy our group of friends from UWSP migrated 90 minutes south and now we live so close that our kids go to the same school. We were able to meet early Saturday morning in downtown Sun Prairie for a quick urban session. It was fun and went perfectly with the outfits Sara picked for her family.

Seriously, they ooze perfection, don’t they? Even their candid, silly outtakes are perfect.
