Portraits: welcome baby everett


Everett was a little superstar for his newborn session!  Not to give high expectations to all those mommys-to-be out there, but at six days old, Everett didn’t let out any cries, no baby whimpers, nothing.  He let us pose him, wiggle him around, wrap him up, dress him as a caterpillar and he slept through all of it.  His older brother David did a great job too.  He was gentle and sweet with his new baby, and was excited to have photos taken together.  Getting to see new babies so early is such a blessing.  We have the opportunity to preserve these first few days – to share this big moment and all those teenie-tiny (gushworthy) features.  Congratulations to the {P} Family on welcoming their new addition!

Portraits: the {S} family at pamperin park, green bay



Sometimes I feel like I spend a lot of time explaining why choosing a certain time of day for clients’ sessions is important.  I explain where the light falls, and how it can create a dreamy, golden ambiance; I talk about how much softer and more flattering it is than midday light.  What I should really do is show them a session like this one.

We had perfect “golden hour” light for the {S} Family’s session, and Sarah spent a lot of time coordinating their stylish and contemporary ensembles (which are perfect, by the way!)  Jack kept us entertained throughout the session; he picked up on every little thing we were talking about, made jokes, and kept the session upbeat.  Cameron was the sweetest little boy – always up for mommy hugs (and not minding those big brother squeezes) – he was smiley and content.  Photographing the {S} Family just felt light a sunny afternoon spent chatting at the park. 🙂

Portraits: the {R} family at green isle park, green bay



We had the most perfect golden afternoon for the {R} Family’s session here in Green Bay, WI.  The weather was beautiful, and the kiddos were happy to be there.  Ashley and Mike were very fun and easy to work with; they are patient, intuitive and really get involved in whatever interests their little ones.  Matthew, the big tough five year old, was a little shy at first but quickly opened up to talk about his favorite movie: Planes.  Ellie and Blake, the cute little twinsies, were celebrating their first Birthdays.  Blake has bright blue eyes, big smiles, and a fantastic tuft of orange hair.  Ellie is full of expression; it takes a fraction of a second for a deep scowl to become and intrigued glance, to become the biggest smile you have ever seen.  This family is so full of love and it was a wonderful afternoon spent making memories with them.

Portraits: ryan turns nine months

Green Bay_Infant_Child_Studio_Family_PhotographyIt’s really wonderful to have families come back to us years after their wedding day has passed to celebrate the new milestones in their lives.  For Katrina and Dennis that new milestone is baby Ryan.  We met little Ryan for his newborn session last year, and at nine months he has grown so much – crawling, pulling himself up, and developing all sorts of expressions to make us giggle.  Katrina and Dennis are the most thoughtful, devoted and patient people, and it makes me so happy that they have found joy in each other and in the family they have created together.  <3


Portraits: leo’s nine month session

Green_Bay_Photography_Child_Green_Isle_ParkLeo is the happiest baby of all time! He spent the entire length of the session giggling, smiling and flirting with the camera. And if the big, genuine smiles don’t get you, those blue eyes will win you over. The {N} family was such a treat to work with; they are relaxed, loving and joyful, and all of these traits are so clearly present in their baby boy.

The {N} Family won our session giveaway at Sweetpeas Clothier in May and traveled up from Madison for their portraits. We are very glad to have had the opportunity to get to know them and create images for their little family.  Happy first birthday, Leo!


Portraits: morgan turns one


We first met the {K} family for their son, Carter’s one year photos.  Now, two years later, it is little Morgan’s turn.  With a spring Birthday here in Wisconsin, we were battling rain and wind, but a week later we got the perfect day.  Carter was glad for the change of date because it meant he got to join us and help steal giggles from his baby sister.  The thing I love most about Morgan is that she is full of so many expressions.  In the smallest moment she can go from the most serious, engaged, thoughtful face, to a big, bright smile.

It has been such a pleasure to work with the {K} family for so many wonderful sessions: milestone sessions, mini sessions, even a little modeling.  Photographing them regularly has given us a close relationship and allowed us to create photos that fit their family personally.  Happy Birthday, little Morgan!

Portraits: jonathon turns two

ChildJonathon is always on the go – no matter where he is, he has big plans for what should be done next, where to run, and what to ride.  For his two year session we had the opportunity to photograph at his grandparent’s home in the Luxemburg area.  The land is sprawling with gardens and vintage outbuildings, and we ended up with the perfect golden light coming through the tree line.  To fit Jonathon’s always-on-the-go persona, we photographed in a more lifestyle fashion to allow him to express exactly who he is at this age.  This made for a very intimate collection of photos, unique to Jonathon and his family.  Happy Birthday, Jonathon!


Families: {S} family at the wildlife sanctuary

Wildlife Sanctuary Green Bay


There are lots of things to celebrate for the {S} Family.  Like all of us, they are rejoicing the long-awaited arrival of spring, but they are also celebrating a first Birthday for their youngest, Hunter, and a fourth Birthday for their big man, Aden.  When Aden was just six months old, we did a family session with them at the Wildlife Sanctuary, and since then they have felt a special connection to the location.  As family, they keep busy with all sorts of fun activities, whether it is t-ball for Aden, visits to the Children’s Museum or New Zoo here in Green Bay, or just visiting grandma and grandpa’s farm.  Aden is always on the go – ready to explore everything around him and find out how things work.  Hunter is attentive – keeping an eye on what is going on, and who is around.  He is full of smiles, and we love his little wisps of red hair!  Happy Birthday, Aden and Hunter, and so happy to have new family portraits for the {S} Family!

Portraits: rowan turns one



We had the most beautiful day for Rowan’s one year session outdoors at Green Isle Park here in Green Bay.  It was one of the first spring days where everything was turning green and we all began to have a little hope that warm weather would finally come to Wisconsin.  Meagan and Adam were one of our very first weddings we photographed professionally, and it is so special to see all the changes in their lives since then – the most beautiful of which is this smiley, goofy, contagiously happy little boy.  Rowan thought everything we did was hilarious, and he enjoyed watching the bicyclists, runners, and puppy-dogs pass him by.  He did a great job (and mom and dad picked out the cutest outfits!)  Happy First Birthday, Rowan!
