Fall Senior Portrait Photos in Green Bay

Fall Photos, Green Bay Abby is so cool. If I were in high school; I’d want to be her friend. She’s into art and photography, has a great sense of style, and plans on going to school for criminology. Beyond all that, she worked in a tattoo parlor for most of high school and even did some designs herself…see? Cool.

Green Bay Fall Senior Photos

When we got together to plan for Abby’s session, I asked what they were thinking about for location or the mood of a location. At first they brought up a really common photography destination here in Green Bay and asked my opinion. I mentioned that it’s nice, but very popular, and they immediately asked what one of my favorite unpopular locations was. That’s how we ended up choosing our fall-centered location full of deep red sumac and drying mustard plants (you know, the things that make my photographer heart skip a beat!)

Fall had certainly arrived in time for Abby’s session; the colors were just starting to turn and the wind was picking up (although those dang mosquitos had yet to die — they happily rest in peace now). Fall light gives such a warmth to images. I love that golden light at golden hour; it doesn’t get much better than that. Congratulations on your senior year, Abby, and best wishes on all the great things your future holds!

Small Wedding at Simply Country Barn

Simply Country Barn Freedom, WI PhotographerWhen Connie and David began planning their wedding, they knew what was most important to them. The day was about family, plain and simple. It was about celebrating two people who found one another, and enjoying it with the closest friends and family who had been with them along the way. The result was a wedding that felt intimate and full of joy.

Limited Edition Lilac Session, Green Bay Family Photographer

Lilacs Spring Photos Green Bay PhotographerI love photographing toddlers. Many photographers dread this age — they like sleeping newborns or well-behaved grade-schoolers best — but I love the energy toddlers bring! There is no “sit and smile”, there is no convincing “cheese”, but there is always big play. We will get down in the grass, we will tickle and tease, we will be our most ridiculous (anyone who has had photos with Ben knows this!) And the reward for getting to their level is unbridled laughs from kiddos who haven’t learned to be self-conscious or “tone it down”. They are completely themselves, making each photograph their own.

Green Bay Outdoor Family Photos

As a mom of a toddler, I know the age is not without difficulty. There are tantrums over which shoes to wear (galoshes every day if you ask Juniper) and there is no logic that can penetrate their sadness when you won’t let them play in the thunderstorm, but the other side of it is little lessons they teach over and over reminding us to be in the moment. Stop and smell the flowers, see that the dandelions are as pretty as the lilacs, and enjoy the time we have with the people we love best.

Green Isle Park Spring Family Photos, Green Bay, Wisconsin

Green Bay Family Photographers Green Bay Family PicturesJust a few weeks before this session there was a foot of snow on the ground as Courtney and Tanner celebrated their engagement. Now, in March, we celebrate their family! This was Ainsely’s first official portrait session and she did a great job! Baxter (the first baby) was also included in the session and brought extra joy and energy to the scene. The four of them are so sweet and we were blessed with such lovely spring weather and bright sunshine. Happy babies and a happy families make for beautiful photos that make our hearts happy! (Be sure to check out Courtney and Tanner’s Engagement and stay tuned for wedding photos next year!)

Cozy Cabin Family Session

The new year has rolled around, and we’re busy making plans for next season, but as we do, we have a few favorite sessions left to blog. One of those is Amanda’s cozy log cabin session as part of our Limited Edition Seasonal Sessions we hold each spring and fall. Amanda is our web designer, and very talented, so we’ve had the pleasure of working with her as her photographers and as her clients. This session was her family’s first official family photos and it was a blast! Jameson is smart and funny, full of brilliant ideas, and clearly has lots of love for Amanda and Jason. We loved teasing and joking and making images together! Cheers!

Portraits: cozy cabin limited edition session, green bay

Family Portraits in Green Bay

A few years ago we stepped away from doing “mini sessions”. One of the main reasons for this was that we felt rushed. If a kiddo took some time to warm up (introverts get it) or a baby needed a bottle break, half our time was already over and we didn’t have room to make exceptions. I felt like we weren’t delivering our best work, so we just stopped doing them altogether.

Then last year, Ben and I dreamed up our own type of session. We asked ourselves what we would want if it was our family, and that’s when we came up with Limited Edition Sessions. Limited Edition Sessions still have the exciting location and exclusive dates, but they also have a spacious time slot (nearly an hour) so we’re not worried about feeling rushed. The long session time alows us to photograph in our favorite way, mixing posed and candid photos and cuing families with activities to help them interact and play. Limited Edition Sessions are also lower cost to allow new clients to “try us out” and families with older kiddos to come back for fun, shorter sessions.

Nicole, Jeff and their family are new to us this year. Their girls, Alex and Quinn, are so sweet and so happy! It was a pleasure getting to know them and make pictures together on that snowy Saturday! Happy Holidays!

Portraits: cozy cabin session with baby wilson and family

The {S} Family was our first session of the day for our Limited Edition Cozy Cabin Sessions this year. The sessions were held in Green Bay with a winter set up including tin mugs, wool blankets, cut logs, and all the cozy essentials. The night before brought a light dusting of snow, which made the backdrop all the more perfect for Kasey, Ross, and baby Wilson’s session! The family was dressed in seasonal layers with puffer vests and sweaters and Wilson had the tiniest sherpa hat and duck boots ever. Even though young babies are usually uncomfortable with strangers, Wilson was smiley and happy the whole way through. With the cold temperatures, we took a break to let the little guy warm up, and finished up with some cute lifestyle shots in front of the cabin. These are going to make for the cutest Christmas cards, and we can’t wait for the {S} Family to have their beautiful wall art!

Seniors: gonzalo, bairds creek, green bay

When planning for Gonzalo’s senior photos, he and his family knew they wanted two things: fall color and to incorporate his soccer jersey. We knew we could make that happen and gave suggestions for a few different locations, the family eventually settling on Bairds Creek in Green Bay. Gonzalo plays soccer for Preble High School and plans to play in college as well. His second outfit was a great choice for late fall with the rich crimson brining out the warm tones in the leaves. We had a fun session and can’t wait to share their prints and album with them!

Seniors: hope, cave point, door county & downtown green bay

It’s amazing how much variety we can capture when seniors pick two really cool locations! We started Hope’s senior portrait session in the summer at Cave Point in Door County and ended it in fall in downtown Green Bay. The variety of the seasons, wardrobe, and setting made it such a fun session for us to photograph. The Niagara Escarpment is always gorgeous to photograph and even though the water has been high this year, Hope braved the rocky climb down to the water and was rewarded with beautiful Lake Michigan waves crashing and pouring over the rock face. When we met up in Green Bay, the leaves were just turning gold and we were able to get an urban mood with brick, murals, and industry for our backgrounds. So much to love about this session!

Seniors: alli, green bay botanical gardens & green bay beach

It’s so fun for us when seniors choose two locations that are completely different from one another. With our first stop at Green Bay Botanical Gardens, we had beautiful greens, flowers, and fountain with everything precise and perfect, and with our second beachy location we got the wind and water completely untamed and beautiful. As we got to the bay, the wind picked up along the shore and we were worried about how it would affect pictures, but we actually love Alli’s windblown hair and dress, especially as the sunset glows in the background! Alli is sporty, easygoing, and fun, and we loved getting to know her and her family. Best wishes on your senior year and beyond, Alli!
