I can feel summer around the corner – the buzz, summer plans falling into place, and session plans underway! And speaking of sessions . . .  I’ve been dreaming about this summer lifestyle session (and not-so-patiently waiting for strawberry season) and it feels like the right time to blog about this beauty of a family […]

After a stretch of gloomy, rainy days here in Central Wisconsin – I’m over here reminiscing about this spring motherhood lifestyle session last season. It was bright, floral-filled, and glowing with sunshine. Ahhhh – can you almost smell those lilacs from your seat? Samantha and her little Auggie ended the session meandering through a meadow […]

I have the most special place in my heart for lifestyle family sessions. Moms, dads, and little ones are relaxed and living life out as they would in their day-to-day. From running around the dining room in their socks to (in this case) chasing chickens in the backyard, I’m able to capture their lives at […]

It’s no secret that I often hibernate during the winter months and retreat indoors until the spring thaw. My husband can attest to this. So when Shiara reached out to me about a family shoot in December, I let out a little shiver as I agreed. I stumbled out of my den and met up […]

The Togstad Family met me at one of my favorite place, Schmeekle Reserve, on one of the last warm fall evenings of the season. Don’t be fooled by their sweaters and boots! We spent the session wandering around enjoying the warm sun and freshly fallen leaves. Enjoy the sneak peek of this sweet family!

The initial forecast for my session with The Wiskerchen Family wasn’t the brightest one. The forecast: cool temperatures and steady rain. What we actually got: a sky without a drop of rain and an incredible golden sunset that warmed everyone right up. The cool air made for the perfect reason to snuggle up for some […]

The Jensen Family met me at one of my favorite spots in Stevens Point for fall family photos. Everything about this session was oh-so-dreamy. From the sunset to portraits of this soon-to-be-momma of three… the session was glowing from beginning to end! What really made this time with The Jensen Family special? These blonde-haired, blue-eyed […]

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I LOVE FALL. Every single thing about it. Getting to meeting families like the Simcakoski Family for fall sessions only makes me love it that much more. We had to reschedule due to some rainy weather the night before and am I ever glad we did. […]

The Heck Family Session marked my kickoff of my fall portrait season and it sure set the bar high! It was everything a fall session should be: a glowing sunset, falling leaves, and one amazing family (and their pups!). What didn’t we expect when choosing a session date in late September? A nearly ninety degree […]

Excited. Ready. Nervous. Anxious. Eager. Blessed. Very, very blessed…. These were all of the emotions we were feeling two weeks ago as we waited for Adelyn to arrive. Our little lady made us wait a couple days extra but she made her entrance on September 5th bright and early at 6:18 am. How are we […]

As mother nature would have it, our original session date was graced with rain and dreary skies. Why am I not upset about that? Our rescheduled evening was filled with warm sunshine, blooming wildflowers, and the golden rays that every photographer dreams about! Holly and little Mackenzy made their way out to Lake Emily for […]
