Family Portraits in Green Bay

Fall is our most popular time of the year for family sessions here in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The leaves are starting to change color, the air feels crisp and clean, and it’s time for cardigans and flannel (the coziest of all fashion choices!) I met with Allison to talk about her session a few weeks beforehand and got to know her two smallest boys, Clark and Jack while they played and snacked. Allison told me she was looking for portraits that would be timeless and fit their minimal, clean style for her home and family. On the session day we got to meet her husband Paul and their two older boys. Everybody was dressed in perfect seasonal layers in blues, creams, and grays that fit with the bright oranges of the fallen leaves. We played with the little boys and teased smiles out of the older ones. At the end of the session, we ended with a giant leaf fight, the perfect reward for some well-behaved little guys. It was a pleasure, Allison and Paul, we wish you and your family the best this holiday season!

Weddings: brittany & tim, green bay community church and riverside ballroom, green bay

Brittany and Tim had a long road leading up to their wedding day. After an incredibly romantic courtship and proposal, they faced medical issues and the loss of loved ones, and we could read in their hearts how much they looked forward to their wedding day as not only a symbol of their love, but also the beginning of a new chapter in their lives. Brittany and Tim are deeply caring and always thinking of others, and so it came as no surprise that their wedding was filled wall to wall with friends and family ready to celebrate their wedding day.

After the couple got ready, Brittany had a first look with her grandfather and father-in-law, followed by a prayer circle with her bridesmaids. The ceremony was held at Green Bay Community Church with picture stops at Lambeau Field and Pamperin Park before arriving at their reception at Riverside Ballroom in downtown Green Bay. The entire day was filled with personal touches with every detail planned to match the theme. It was a beautiful day with two wonderful people. Congratulations, Brittany and Tim!

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

fall-family-pictures-pamperin-park-green-bay-child-one-year-outdoors-lifestyle-leaves-colorful-photos-1 fall-family-pictures-pamperin-park-green-bay-child-one-year-outdoors-lifestyle-leaves-colorful-photos-2When newborns we photograph come back for their one year milestone, I am always amazed by how much can change in a single year. Nothing marks a year gone by more pointedly than a baby’s growth. In wonderful cases like Baby Charlotte, we’ve gotten to see them in between as they start to sit up, smile and interact. But when we see them at one year old, standing, laughing, and – in Charlotte’s case – running, it’s really incredible. Those tiny sleeping bundles grow up and we love seeing the new things they learn and the little people they’re growing into. Charlotte’s session was all fall fun, starting with mommy and daddy time and ending with balloons, pumpkins, and leaves. Her favorite things are songs, books, and teasing us by running the other way. Happy First Birthday. Charlotte!

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: 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.

Weddings: katy and adam, green bay community church

Wedding_Green_Bay_Pamperin_Park_Summer_Bride_Spring1 Wedding_Green_Bay_Pamperin_Park_Summer_Bride_Spring2Katy and Adam’s wedding day was the perfect representation of who they are as a couple: down to earth, happy, and centered around their family. It’s rare that a wedding day begins as relaxed as theirs did. The couple chose to spend the entire day together from start to finish – waking up together, preparing their daughters together, and getting ready side-by-side. This meant a playful morning for pictures and no pressure walking down the aisle.  Daughters Lindsey and McKayla were so good, happy to be in pretty dresses seeing mommy and daddy get married.

We know that Katy and Adam had to wait longer than most for their wedding day. The planning process tested their patience and made them work harder than ever for what they wanted, and we couldn’t be happier to see that day arrive. They deserve it. Congratulations, Katy and Adam, McKayla and Lindsey!
