This sweet family was full of genuine smiles as they played, tickled, and laughed together for their fun session. I had blast chasing Conner and finding him in all his clever hiding spots!
This lovely family won the cutest kid contest I held at the Madison Kids Expo back in April. I was so excited to get to photograph this sweet girl again. I had a fantastic time with the three of them, and loved watching the three of them tickle, hug, and play.
Leslie and Audrey won the free session in the Madison Kids Expo Cutest Kid Contest, and I was so excited to get to spend some time with the two of them. Audrey is a sweet, silly girl who knows what she wants and how to give awesome hugs (I know because I was lucky enough to receive one of her awesome hugs). I had so much fun with them at their session, and loved seeing them goof off, hug, kiss, and giggle the entire time. And their boots are awesome.
I had the great privilege of photographing Christina and Andy’s wedding back in 2010, and I was so excited to get the opportunity to photograph them again as their family grew this year. Andy and Christina welcomed little Carson to their family almost 4 months ago, and he’s just as sweet as they are! Andy is living in Texas until he’s finished with active duty in the military, and Christina and Carson are back in Iowa, anxiously awaiting his return home. They soak up every minute they get while he’s visiting, and can’t wait to be together as a family again. Thank you for letting me capture this part of your lives, and thank you for your service, Andy.
Erin & Brad are such a sweet couple. Their wedding was simple and elegant, and was celebrated with 30 of their closest friends and family members. Erin wore her mother’s wedding gown and veil, and had the flowers delivered from the Madison Farmer’s Market. I was honored to be a part of their perfect day. Congratulations, Erin and Brad!
My new niece has arrived! Beautiful Kynick was just 3 days old when I first got to meet and snuggle with her. The next day she was a perfect angel for photos. This little Hawkeye fan is very loved, and will be very spoiled by her two older sisters. And by Grandma and Grandpa. And her Aunt Jen and Uncle Jamie.
I had such a great time photographing all these little ones at Happy Bambino last Sunday! Each and every one of them made me smile, and they all definitely kept me on my toes. It was a crazy day of babies all 8-12 months old, and all cruising around in one way or another. I can’t think of a better way to spend a day at work than with adorable kiddos.
This family was so inviting, polite, nice, and just plain sweet, I could only describe them as overflowing with happiness. I had a great time getting to know Brandi and Josh a little better, and playing with miss Graycie (when she decided to wake up). I’m looking forward to play dates now that it’s finally getting warmer!
What can I say about this beautiful, smart, charming, life of the party young woman? She’s my sister, so I love her to pieces, and I may be a bit biased. That being said, she’s not your average teenage girl. Her best friends are her family (and her boyfriend, of course), and she’d rather hang out at home with all of us on a Friday night than anything else. That’s pretty awesome and makes me feel very loved when we’re able to make it home for the rare occasion when we’re all able to be in one place at one time. She’s an amazing aunt to her two nephews and three nieces and is always willing (and excited) to babysit or help out in any way she can. She’s a great student and just became a member of the National Honor Society. She’s going to do well in whatever it is she decides to do in life, but I think she should go into sales. Because she loves to talk. Loves.
I can’t believe it’s almost time for her to graduate. She’s grown up so fast, and we’ve all loved watching her become the amazing young woman she is today and are excited to see who she’ll decide to be tomorrow. I love you, Han!
I’m not sure how to say all I want to say about this amazing couple. Dave and Mayia are close friends of mine and Jamie’s (my husband). The two of them are the true definition of “friend” and we feel incredibly blessed to have them in our lives. Of all the weddings I’ve attended, this one had the most happy tears shed, the most touching stories and toasts, and the most (by far) crazy antics throughout the day. From recreating the Orleans album cover to the best man’s surprise performance to Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros’ “One Love” during the reception, this event was one to remember.
In addition to knowing how to throw a really great party, Dave and Mayia know how to show how much they care for their family and friends. They do this on a daily basis, but they made sure we all knew that their wedding day was celebrating their loved ones just as much as it was celebrating their love for each other.
I truly hope they realize how much the two of them mean to us, and wish them all the love, happiness, laughter in the world.
