Portraits: elizabeth’s one year session, pamperin park, green bay

green-bay-family-photographer-pamperin-park-pictures-child-one-year-outdoors-lifestyle-photos-1 green-bay-family-photographer-pamperin-park-pictures-child-one-year-outdoors-lifestyle-photos-2Outdoor sessions with kiddos have so much more personality to them. Outdoors there are things to explore, places to run to, games to play, and of course all the natural beauty that is Wisconsin in summer.  Elizabeth turned one in spring, and ever since then she’s been on the move. It was important to us to capture this new milestone for her family, and Pamperin Park in Green Bay was a great location. Elizabeth is playful, fearless, and full of smiles. She teased us by looking away as she laughed and by running full speed after each big smile. This made natural images that show exactly who she is right now (sneaky expressions and all). Happy First Birthday, Elizabeth!

Portraits: rustic family session at fonferek glen, green bay

rustic-country-family-green-bay-photography-kids-children-fonferek-glen-photos-1 rustic-country-family-green-bay-photography-kids-children-fonferek-glen-photos-2Little boys going on big adventures – there is nothing more perfect. That’s what we loved about the {C} Family’s session at Fonferek Glen in De Pere. Hayden, Mason, and Brady each have completely different personalities, but when it comes to getting into mischief together, they are all in. The fields of Fonferek were a great place for them to explore and play as we captured the colors and textures of the warm summer night. The session ended with the family of five holding hands and walking toward the fields, their long shadows stretching across the grass. These are the summer moments that midwesterners cling to as the days get shorter and the kiddos grow bigger. We were so happy to capture these boys at such fun ages, full of curiosity and joy!

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!

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

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: 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 home, seymour wisconsin

Seymour-Green-Bay-Family-Photography-Farm-Photographer-Rustic-Country-Barn-ChildrenOften we get phone calls and emails tentatively asking if we’re willing to travel to homes, cabins, cottages, and other special locations. The answer is always “yes!” because we love exploring new locations and we know photographing at these private spots makes for more personal images.

For Jaime and her family, that special place is their home in Seymour, Wisconsin which sits on acres of sprawling farmland. Here they work and play hard, with their two sons buzzing through the fields on dirt bikes (their dog, Ivan, in tow).  It’s that imaginative, wild, country childhood that I was lucky enough to grow up with as well, and you can tell how much it means to their two sons Nicholas and Hayden. The session was beautiful – soft, evening light, a rustic old barn, and endless fields of evergreens and untamed grasses – everything we could ask for. Thanks for having us {S} Family (and please pass along some ear scratches to Ivan for us!)
