Habelman Cranberries | Tomah, WI Photographer

Cranberries are a big part of Tomah and the local communities around us.  This weekend was the annual cranberry festival up in Warrens.  After spending the day shopping and eating a bunch of amazing food - I had a gorgeous sunlit photo session with the Habelman's.  We got right out in the cranberry beds - and Brody finally let me take a picture of his truck (as long as I didn't touch it).  This is one of my favorite shots - EVER!

Huenke Family | Tomah, WI Photographer

The Huenke Family came into the studio on a rainy, cloudy day.  We originally weren't going to do any studio pictures, however since it was rainy, we had no choice.  After a little bit, the rain let up and we decided to run outside and get a few anyway.  Turned out we did the perfect thing!!  Aiden & Liam were playing and enjoying the outdoors.

Taylor Family | Eau Claire, WI Photographer

I have had the pleasure of knowing the Taylor family for a little over three years ... and this is the third year I have done their pictures.  This year, they asked if I could come up to Eau Claire and get some pictures at a gorgeous park that they have downtown.  As you can tell from the pictures, half of the family loves Da Bears ... half love the Lions ... and one is stuck in the middle ... obviously he is going to be a Packer fan (right?!?!)!  My favorite picture is the last one - if you only knew Kiera and Logan, I think you would say it captures their personality perfectly!

Ethan 6m & Family | Tomah, WI Photographer

I had the pleasure of meeting the Veloso family when they came in for maternity pictures last winter.  It was one of the coldest days of the year (we literally stopped every 5 minutes to sit in the car for 10 minutes so we could warm up).  A couple of days later, I got a phone call from the hospital letting me know Ethan had arrived and he was ready for his newborn shoot.

Fast forward SIX months and it was time for Ethan to come into the studio again.  He was very cautious and very serious - but we managed to squeeze a few smiles out of him.  Plus, you would never guess it was his first time in the grass - he was in LOVE with it!

Charlotte's Bridal | La Crosse, WI Photographer

Remember this image?!?  If you are in the La Crosse area, be sure to stop by Charlotte's Bridal and check out the 20x30 canvas!  It's hanging on their wall and looks fab!  Plus, if you're getting married - stop by and ask Summer to assist you in all your wedding attire needs :)

Kasmara 2013 Senior | Tomah, WI Photographer

Kasmara is as unique as her name.  She wanted her senior pictures to show her fun side as well as her attitude, for which she couldn't have picked better outfits!  Her orange prom dress was GORGEOUS, her summer outfit was fun, and her cheetah print was perfect for the attitude part.  We had a lot of fun shooting her session ... even if it did involve lots of people staring as we drug her around town in an orange prom dress ;)

Fisher Family | Tomah, WI Photographer

Meet the Fisher's.  This is one of my comfortable sessions ... Paul goes to school with my daughter, Michaela is one of my assistants that I hired to work with me, and the rest of the family I have dealt with many, many, MANY times!  We wanted to get Michaela comfortable with handling a light - so what better way to train her than on her own family!

Gray Family Vacation | Warrens, WI Photographer

The Gray's are not from the area, however they decided to vacation together at Three Bears Lodge.  It was super cloudy and rainy - but thankfully everything cleared up in time for their session.  We went to a nearby lake and did as much as we could with the two youngest ones while we had their cooperation.  Vacation photos are an awesome way to capture your family being themselves!

Jaelyn Cake Smash | Tomah, WI Photographer

I've had the pleasure of shooting Jaelyn's pictures many times during the last year ... newborn, family, 3m, 6m, 9m, and the most recent - 1yr!  Mom wanted a cake smash and I told her about the new backdrop we ordered.  Thankfully everyone saw my vision and we were able to pull off an awesome theme.  The cake was ordered from Lauren's Flour Shoppe and the tutu came from My Mommy Boutique - both in Tomah!

Morgan 2013 Senior | Tomah, WI Photographer

Morgan is one of Tomah's 'class of 2013' seniors.  She couldn't have picked a more perfect day.  She said she didn't have a preference as far as pictures, as long as she got her puppy in a few of them.  The puppy was a doll - and quite cooperative!  We had a great session with Morgan!

David & Heather Married | Tomah, WI Photographer

Heather and David were married on one of the hottest days of July!  Everything was gorgeous - they put a lot of thought into every detail!  It was impossible to decide which images to use to describe this wedding - but these are a few of my favorites!  My absolute most favorite image is the 2nd to last one in this blog.  Heather's grandparents were the last ones standing during the anniversary dance - we just happened to catch the new couple with Grandma & Grandpa (who had been married for over 50 years)!
