Portraits: country family session in new london, wisconsin

New-London-Family-Photographer-Green-Bay-Country-Rustic-Fields-Photography-Children-Kids-1 New-London-Family-Photographer-Green-Bay-Country-Rustic-Fields-Photography-Children-Kids-2We could not get enough of these cute kiddos! Isley and Chance were playful, sweet, and just excited to be taking photos at the site of their new home. The {C} Family is building their house on acres of fields, woods, and farmland in New London, Wisconsin. This made for an incredible backdrop for family strolling, wildflower picking, and sibling snuggles. As soon as we arrived, we got a tour around the area on the family ATV to check out different spots. As dad started it up, Isley hopped aboard to make sure she got an opportunity to ride the “weeeeeee!” As we cruised around the property she kept turning toward us to smile and check that we were having fun too. The session was wonderful and we even got the opportunity to snap a few Avengers themed photos at the end to highlight a favorite family interest. We’re looking forward to sharing sneaks of their beautiful album and wall art as they arrive over the next few weeks!

Portraits: extended family session at green isle park, green bay

Green-Bay-Extended-Family-Photos-Group-Photos-Photography-Green-Isle-Park-Casual-Fun1 Green-Bay-Extended-Family-Photos-Group-Photos-Photography-Green-Isle-Park-Casual-Fun2Warm nights, being outside, and enjoying time with family… that’s what summer is all about! Kari’s family session had all those elements underscored with happy cousins playing and laughing in the park together. It can be a challenge to get extended family together for pictures, but the results are so worth the time spent finding clothes and choosing dates. All four boys did a great job for their session (even little Harry who wasn’t quite two yet!) Each of them have bright and spirited personalities and we loved getting to know them.

Stay tuned on our social media accounts for a couple more sneaks as well as a preview of the wall art displays the family has selected for their homes!

Green-Bay-Family-Photographer-Green-Isle-Park-Outdoors-Lifestyle-Vibrant-Natural-Kids-Photos-Outside-Best-1 Green-Bay-Family-Photographer-Green-Isle-Park-Outdoors-Lifestyle-Vibrant-Natural-Kids-Photos-Outside-Best-2Most families wait until summer rolls around to think about family photos, but we adore the variety we can capture with spring sessions. May brings blooming trees, bright green hues, and long beautiful evenings like this one. The {M} Family planned their session in celebration of little Asher turning six months old, but it also made a great opportunity for family photos, portraits of the older kiddos, and a few special mommy/daddy photos with baby number three. There was time spent adventuring into the long grasses, snuggling baby brother, and playing games. Asher is happy and easygoing no matter the situation and he is completely enamored with his big sister. Kendall is smart, funny, and quick to pick up on everything around her, and Trent is playful, sweet, and an absolute ham for the camera. All three did a great job for their session and we had a wonderful evening in the park together!

Portraits: elizabeth’s sitting session, green bay, wisconsin

Green-Bay-Infant-Child-6-months-studio-family-photographyElizabeth is the happiest baby. She is always full of giggles and smiles, never nervous to be held by friends and family who love her snuggly nature. Elizabeth was eight months for her sitting session and everyone was unsure how it would go that day because she had missed her nap and just gotten over a sickness. We assured them that we could always reschedule, but decided to give Lizzie a little time to adjust first. In no time, she was back to her happy self – giggling, sticking out her tongue, and flashing the bright smile she inherited from daddy. I love photographing little ones at the sitting stage because of how much personality comes out (it’s also one of the last stages before they become master crawlers, and can sneak away from us!) Can’t wait to watch you grow, Baby Elizabeth!

Portraits: family session at the national railroad museum, green bay, wisconsin

National-Railroad-Museum-Trains-Green-Bay-Photos-Family-Photographer-Winter-Outdoors-Kids-BirthdayI have always loved trains. I’m not exactly sure where the fascination comes from (my best guess is that it’s a mix of mid-century nostalgia and unquenchable wanderlust). Regardless, I was thrilled when Meagan suggested the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay as the location for their family session. As it turns out little Rowan also loves trains!

Our session took place the week after the first big snowstorm hit Wisconsin, leaving it under a blanket of white. Rowan and Hawthorn were both excited to explore the train museum, climbing inside the engines to see how things worked. We photographed the family out front in the frosty landscape, then spent some time inside with the boys as they discovered all there was to see in their very first visit. As the sun began to go down, we snagged a few more moments outdoors in the beautiful, evening light. This family is always a joy to photograph – so much love and so much play!

Portraits: family session at lambeau field, green bay

Lambeau-Field-Green-Bay-Family-Photography-Packers-Photographer-Winter-Kids-ChildrenGreen Bay is such a classic, midwestern city. If people guessed what we are best known for, even with very little knowledge they would almost certainly be right: breweries, cheese, and football. And we take them all very seriously. 🙂

When Gail contacted me from La Grange, Texas and mentioned that she and her daughter would be traveling in for a Packers football game, and were considering a Green Bay family session, I could not be more excited. They are huge Packers fans, despite living in Cowboys country, and so there was only one perfect location for their session – Lambeau Field.

True Wisconsin winter (including the heavy snow and harsh wind) had not quite arrived on that December day, but for little Harper, the 40 degree weather was still a big change from the 80 degrees they left behind. She handled it like a champ and was so fun to photograph!  We spent some time in front of the stadium, went down into the bowl, and even stopped outside for a “Lambeau leap” before wrapping up the session. The next day Gail and Harper were back in the stadium with thousands of others to cheer on the Packers against their home team!

Portraits: family session at green isle park, green bay

Green-Bay-Family-Photography-Green-Isle-Park-Fall-Photographer-Kids-ChildrenEvelyn was one of the first newborns we ever photographed. As she grows up (and her family gets bigger too) it’s such a pleasure to continue to photograph she and her baby sister Stella. The {T} Family is wonderful; they are fun, relaxed, and always playful with their girls. This session was the first that the four of them have been outdoors for a session together, and what better setting than a park, where there is room to run, bridges to climb, and mischief to be made. We had a blast teasing and tickling the girls, and photographing on one of the few fall days that was sunny and warm. Until next time, little blondies!

Portraits: family session at fonferek glen, green bay

Fonferek-Falls-Glen-Family-Photography-Green-Bay-Photographer-Rustic-Country-Kids-ChildrenThere are many things I love about being a photographer – we spend time outside, celebrate lots of happy moments (weddings, birthdays, graduations), and we get a chance to connect with people.  Most of all I love chasing down beautiful light like this, and making images that I know will become even more meaningful as they age.  It’s a pretty special thing to be a part of capturing these memories of families together – snuggling, playing, smiling – knowing these will be the images they look back on as their family grows and changes.

If you can imagine it, the {B} Family’s session almost got rained out.  In fact we had a moment in the middle of the session with a little bit of sun and just enough of a sprinkle to make a beautiful rainbow. At moments like that you can’t help but feel glad to be where you are with all you have (especially when that includes a camera!) Cheers to the {B} Family and Happy First Birthday to baby Jackson!

Portraits: caiden turns two, pamperin park

Green-Bay-Photography-Child-Pamperin-Park-Two-FamilyTwo year olds have the ability to do something we, as adults, are always trying to figure out… They know how to live in the moment. Every minute is full of possibility; every new place is an adventure waiting to happen.  That’s what makes two year sessions so fun.

We choose locations that allow for running, exploring and playing, so we can be behind the lens (also running and playing) to capture their expressions. It’s always amazing to me to see their surprise, wonderment, (and sassy smirks!) as I go through the images after the session, because many times they are too fast to see in real time. Portraits like these become a way to push “pause” on this crazy stage of constant moving, and have a little something to hold onto – a way to remember your little two year old even when they’re all grown up.
