Every year we shoot a ball at Cranberry Lodge.  It's your standard, keep the lines moving, next group, kind of photography - but it's always fun.  This group made it extra fun this year!

Couple Jennifer & Mike | Tomah, WI Photographer

Jennifer & Mike wanted some images of just the two of them and they wanted an urban setting.  My favorites are definitely the ones on the railroad tracks.  They couldn't have picked a better day to have pictures done!

Randy & Kim Engaged | La Crosse, WI Photographer

Randy & Kim are getting married!!  Kim & I went to high school together - so I feel very honored to be shooting their wedding this fall!  But first, an engagement session :)  The bride-to-be is usually the one who REALLY wants an engagement session - but the groom-to-be usually sets the tone for the engagement session.  Randy was a blast to work with.  He was comfortable and ready for anything - which made this engagement session beautiful! :)

Myla Cake Smash | Tomah, WI Photographer


I first met Myla during our cutest kids contest earlier this year.  Myla's mom is one of the most creative people I know (and I know a LOT of creative people)!  She designed the outfit Myla was wearing, the party hat, and had Lauren from Lauren's Flour Shoppe design a cake to match.  Sometimes you just need to dive in - as Myla showed us! :)

We're a third of the way done!
But aren't those apple blossoms gorgeous! :)

Jakobe 1yr | Tomah, WI Photographer

Jakobe wasn't feeling 100% up to par but he was an awesome during his photo session.  There were smiles.  There were tears.  There were John Deere tractors.  There was a bumblebee cake.  And there was frosting - everywhere!



Kian 3yr | Tomah, WI Photographer

Kian is a typical 3yr old boy.  He loves to run.  He loves to jump.  He loves to ride his bike!  We started indoors but quickly realized that Kian just wanted to run and play - which was perfect because I knew the perfect place to take him.

Hudson Cake Smash | Tomah, WI Photographer

Hudson is turning 1.  He wasn't thrilled with the cake at first simply because there were balloons and he wanted to get the balloons!  Once we got rid of the balloons, he went head first into the cake - literally!  He spent most of the session bent in half, eating the cake face first.  He left here happy! :)

Teag & Tate | Tomah, WI Photographer

I hate, hate, HATE taking pictures of my kids - specifically my kids together, in the same picture.  However, once a year (maybe twice) I actually get a picture of the two of them - together, in the same picture.  Rare!  I can take my kids to any photographer in the world and they pose and do everything I want them to do - but for me - nope.  Never!  Smiling - in the same picture - at the same time.  I will take it! 


Native American | Tomah, WI Photographer

One of my clients approached me with the idea of getting some photos of her family in their Native American garments.  She picked the location and we set a time.  When we arrived at the location I was super excited to see the sun shining perfectly through the trees - it was gorgeous.  She couldn't have picked a more perfect location!  These are some of my favorite images to date!

Missing Something | Tomah, WI Photographer

These past couple of days I've really missed my 365 blog and picture of the day.  I've been told by many individuals that they also miss the daily photos and crazy stories.  I get very caught up in shooting my clients and I love keeping myself busy with some sort of project always in the works.  However, I also get so caught up in shooting for others, I start to forget to shoot for myself.  SOOO - I can't guarantee a daily photo (after all - do you know insane it was to shoot  for almost 700 days straight?

I'm going to start with a couple of 31 day challenges and see where that takes me.  Today though - a sneak peak of my engagement session from Saturday.  These two could seriously model for a magazine.  I CAN NOT WAIT TO SHOOT THEIR WEDDING!

Popp Family | Tomah, WI Photographer

I normally don't shoot families this large in my studio - simply because we have a small studio and most of my backdrops aren't super large.  We were planning on shooting at a separate location - however it didn't end up working out.  SO, we took apart my dining room and I pulled this background out of the basement.  I forgot I had even bought it - but I really like it!  We did things a little unconventional but in the end - my dining room got a thorough cleaning :)

Weekend Sneak Peeks | Tomah, WI Photographer

This weekend has been a long (but super fun) weekend (well, it's only Saturday) BUT still.  There has been no school since Wednesday and the kids don't go back until Tuesday - so it has been a long weekend! :)  Thankfully us moms think ahead and plan an awesome weekend of fun.  Friends - Check.  Food - Check.  Fire - Check.  Big yard for kids to run completely wild in - Check!  All of that equals awesome weekend of fun!

Add in a few photo sessions and it makes the weekend even more awesome - especially when my clients are amazing and up for anything :)  Friday morning started with Miss Mya, Miss Peyton, and their mom modeling their Native American garments.  They were so pretty - and they picked the perfect spot!  Later, an engagement session with Randy & Kim (I went to high school with Kim).  This couple is so fun to work with - I can't wait to shoot their wedding this fall.  And last, but certainly not least - little Kian who is 3!  We started inside but boxing a three (or pretty much 2-4 year old) in a room and saying smile just doesn't work.  Thankfully the rain held off and we headed outside.  Letting Kian run did the trick and we got all kind of smiles out of him!

AGH - I can't wait to get my hands on these and edit - and I can't wait to finish off my weekend with two cake smashes!

Cranberry Bogs | Warrens, WI Photographer

Tried a little HDR action on my iPhone this morning overlooking the cranberry bogs.  Is it sad that my iPhone takes better pictures than my little point and shoot I carry around?

Parker Cake Smash | Tomah, WI Photographer

Parker is going to be ONE!  Day 449 was her newborn debut - and I'm so happy we were able to shoot her 1yr pictures.  The peacock tutu and headband will be staying here at the studio - and it was designed by My Mommy Boutique here in Tomah.  The cake was from our favorite cake shop in Tomah - Lauren's Flour Shoppe.  THOSE EYES!!!!!  Isn't she gorgeous?!?!

2 Years | Tomah, WI Photographer

April 1st is the best day out of the whole year for Pichette Photography!

WHY?!?

It's out anniversary!  (and no - this would be the part where I would tell you that we're going out of business or something - but this is no April Fool's joke) HAHA

We're officially two years old - and we're excited to start on the third.  It's been an amazing process.  My customers are AWESOME (like off the chart awesome).

So to celebrate, we're selling prints for the next two weeks at buy one, get one free.  Which means if you haven't order or you've been waiting to order - now is the time to place your order!

Today, I'm going shopping ALL afternoon because my daughter has outgrown her ENTIRE closet.  So today you get pictures of my yard! :)  Actually these were taken last week - but the reasoning behind it is - you need to see the way these all look now.  February showers bring May flowers (and vines, and it's a little insane to be living in Wisconsin and have everything back to life by April 1st).

So March view of things in the yard ... (and the second to last picture is a picture of our vine thing (yes I believe that is the technical term for it) and the green you see at the bottom of the front piece is what you are looking at).  The last picture is of Harley - who wants to eat a bird.
