Candy Land Cake Smash | Tomah, WI Photographer

Cake Smash sessions are one of my favorite sessions to do - and this time, I got to use my new candy background.  I LOVE it!  The background, the awesome cake made by Lauren's Flour Shoppe here in Tomah, and the tutu made by My Mommy Boutique, also here in Tomah.  Definitely one we'll be keeping here at the studio!

Ethan & Katelyn | Tomah, WI Photographer

Ethan is turning ONE and big sister Katelyn just turned four.  We decided to head outside at Grandma's house for some laid back fun pictures ... after all, Grandma's house is always fun right!?!  We just sat and played in the yard and ended up with these awesome "day in the life" images!

Bryce 2013 Senior | Tomah, WI Photographer

Bryce had the perfect scenario for senior pictures ... he was up for anything, brought stuff that he played or collected with him to his session, and had the perfect sky, cloud, sun ratio.  So, we used all of it and ended up with these - I love it!

Chalkboard Mini Sessions | Tomah, WI Photographer

We are getting ready to head off a week of chalkboard mini sessions (among some of regular family & senior sessions).  Chalkboard mini's are a unique way of doing school pictures.  I, for one, am not big on the school pictures that are offered in our local elementary school (yes, I suppose being a photographer could have something to do with that) ... however, we do them every year just so we can get a yearbook.  This year, we are doing something different!  Of course, we are getting the yearbook - however, for here at home we are hanging these chalkboard images.

There's a million different ways to do them (just browse pinterest) and you can choose whether you vertical or horizontal plus what you want you wording to say.  The best thing about these is that they are a unique way of keeping track of things like what your kids loved in 2nd grade, what their favorite book was in 5th grade, what they wanted to be when they were in 1st grade vs 4th grade, oh and of course, they help you remember what they looked like!

We will have the chalkboard background permanently - so remember to ask for it at your next session.  However, we are offering the "Back to School" sessions this week - so they are discounted as follows: 

1 outfit - (use your 1st day of school outfit if you can't find anything! :)
20 mins
2 - 5x7 images and 5 digital images
$25+tax (addt'l child from same family / same session - $10 ea addt'l)

That's it - it's pretty simple :)  And here's a few examples (these three are best friends so they requested theirs all look the same - but you can do it however you want):

Autumn ... is ... GORGEOUS!  I loved everything about this session.  The light was gorgeous and Autumn was up for anything.  There was no way I could pick a favorite!

Bedeau Family | Tomah, WI Photographer

Keith Jr was the winner of our cutest kids contest earlier this year.  He definitely had the cute part down.  Turning 2 is lots of work for any guy!  Running / playing / making sure everything at the park worked correctly - that's what we spent our afternoon doing!  Mom & Dad tackled him for a couple family poses.

Aaron & Rebecca Engaged | Tomah, WI Photographer

Aaron & Rebecca are getting married this fall and I cannot WAIT to do their wedding.  They are a totally laid back, fun couple who just enjoy being with each other.  What I love the most about this session is that they weren't afraid to be themselves.  Shelby (the sheltie) even joined us for a few pictures.
