Intimate Elopement Celebration {Indian Lake Park, WI}

Love is not only something to be seen, love is also something to be felt. These two connected with each other on such a deep level, they read each others minds, leaned into each others nervousness in front of the camera, and showed me how their love feels. Moving from Texas to Wisconsin recently I was happy to share with them my connection & love of Texas but also let them in on a shared love for Madison and it’s hidden treasures.

Thank you to these two beautiful people for allowing me to capture this treasured time in your lives!

Texas Family Sunshine {The M Family}

Oh sweet Texas, you’re the piece in my heart I didn’t know was missing. Last year we had the opportunity to visit not once, but 4 times! Each was lovelier than the next and each came with some fantastics memories. This family and I were finally able to connect in October and plan a date to get together for photos during my visit. The warmth of the sun, the rich bold Texas greens and yellows, and these two beautiful girlies (and their stunning parents) made for the most perfect evening Texas session. Can’t wait to go back!

Arlo – Lifestyle Newborn {Wisconsin Newborn Photographer}

There will always be a special spot in my heart for those babies I get to witness being born. Arlo is one of those special little babes and just a week before this session his beautiful Mama gave birth and I was able to capture it for this sweet family. There’s something about this session that just makes me fall in love with what I do all over again. Not to mention gives me some sever baby fever! I was so honored to be invited into this little mans new digs, and so so happy for this beautiful family of 3!

Mommy & Me {Lifestyle Retzer Nature Center – Waukesha, WI}

Miss Ada is so so special to everyone around her. She just lights up a room, or in this case the whole nature center. When I got a message from Katie at 2AM asking about photos soon as they were leaving for their big move to Seattle the next week I knew this was so important to her, especially to be wracking your brain at 2 in the morning over it. So we quickly picked a day that weekend, invited the grandparents that were helping while Dad was out getting settled in their new digs and explored this “new to us” place. When I got this email from Katie after sending the images her way I just about cried. This is EXACTLY why I do what I do.

“I will literally love these images forever. I cannot wait for Ada to see them when she’s older and appreciate them in a whole new way. Now I’m gonna go look at all of them a million times.”

Tomorrow is not promised, our lives can change in an instance for better or for worse, but memories will remain, and we can encapsulate those memories with photos. And how she told me one day Ada would look at these is a whole new light hit the nail on the head. We may not print or frame every single picture of our children but one day when they ask, or when we are not there to tell them they will have these knowing that we were THERE.

Family Love {Wingra Park – Madison, WI}

If you couldn’t tell by now, anywhere near the water is my favorite place to shoot. This park in particular quickly became one of our favorite places to visit when we first moved to Madison. The easy parking, playground near by, and the view of the lake and beautiful colored boats. We could easily spend a few hours here every visit. So when this family offered to meet me here I was excited! And when I saw their parked bicycles in the lot I knew this was a perfect spot for them. We had so much fun checking out the lake from different spots and we even got to see an awesome water plane which the boys were both so fascinated by. Thank you so much to this family for coming out, here are just a few of my favorites.
