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.

Maxwell is One Year Old | Short milestone session outside at park with parents

I met Maxwell for the first time during my Dream Big Little One mini sessions earlier this year. He was just 5 months old but stole my heart. He is super adorable and sweet. I was thrilled when mom decided to come back for a short milestone session this fall for his one year pictures.






Newborn Baby Boy Myles | 12 days old | Studio with big sisters

To say I love how Myles newborn baby session turned out would be an understatement. He was the best little client at both of his newborn sessions. Yes…I got to snuggle with him two times, within one week. First visit was to get just photos of Myles. Second session was to include his full family.

His big sisters were amazing with him, even 17 month old Sophia handled him with care and love.



Annual Family Pictures | Brothers | Fall in DeForest Wi

I met Erica two years ago when her oldest son started kindergarten and our kids were at the same bus stop. Last year, bus stop chatting lead to their first RMP session. Another year had gone by before more bus stop chatting lead to us realizing we are from the same small town of Seymour and she actually graduated high school with my sister. How that had not come up before, I have no idea, but it’s such a small world and I laugh every time I think of it that we ended up living just three blocks away from each other.

As always, her boys were on their best behavior and were so much fun during their short session with me. It was a beautiful fall evening when we met up in DeForest.

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.
