I'm an Appleton, WI based family photographer that loves capturing genuine moments with laid-back playfulness.
Last fall I had the opportunity to work with a super sweet family who was visiting WI. They reached out about scheduling a session to mark the 6 month milestone of their baby boy. Six months is one of the best ages to photograph because they aren’t aware of the camera yet. Once kiddos get to about 2 years old, they tend to run the show. Babies though are just interested in snuggling and playing with mom and dad for the most part, so it’s a great time for a photo session. If you’re looking for family photographers in Green Bay, WI, I would love to photograph your family as well!
Fall is such a beautiful time in WI. It’s no wonder people travel from all over to view the gorgeous changing colors. I love to visit Door County in the fall and see all the colors changing. Another favorite spot of mine is Scheig Center & Gardens in Memorial Park in Appleton, WI. Fun fact, we originally scheduled this session at a different location and realized it was closed when we got there. Scheig was our backup location and it worked perfectly!
If you’re not familiar, Scheig Center & Gardens is a separate spot in Memorial Park that has a building for events, flowers constantly blooming, and grassy trails. There’s also a big willow tree that makes a great spot for photos. I love it for spring, summer, and fall sessions!
A 6-month milestone session includes lots of play with baby and snuggling. I will give you prompts throughout the shoot, such as lift baby up, fly baby towards the camera, and give baby snuggles. I always start with a walking shot to get everyone moving and relaxed. You are free to move and interact as you normally would with your family, with a couple extra snuggles thrown in.
I specialize in maternity, family, and newborn photography. My sessions are play-based and capture candid moments between families.
