While it is generally thought that fall is the best time for photos, I have to strongly disagree! Summer photos offer such beautiful greens and a chance to really pop with the right outfits. The Goetsch family joined me for a family photos in Appleton WI at Bubolz Nature Preserve in June. 

I had the pleasure of photographing Emily and Branden last year for Emily’s maternity photos. It is crazy how much can change in only a year! We reminisced how quickly that first year goes. Branden mentioned it was the fastest year of his life and I couldn’t agree more! As a mom of two myself, I can’t believe how quickly our little ones grow up. It never feels fast in the moment, but looking back it is crazy how quickly they change. 

The Goetsch family hit it *out of the park* with their outfit selection. Seriously! I couldn’t have picked better outfits myself. I loved the pop of yellow that Piper wore, the navy blue for Dad, and the beautiful flowy dress with subtle flower print for Mom. It worked beautifully against a green background and made them POP! I love contrast in images. They are my new “what to wear” examples for summer outfits!

Miss Piper celebrated her first birthday the next day and I couldn’t be more honored to capture these moments for her parents. My favorite memory from this session was Emily getting Piper to laugh by telling her to “get it girl!!”. Piper was full of smiles for Mom and Dad. She even helped get them to smile at the end for a couple Mom and Dad shots!

It was such a pleasure to spend some time with this family again! If you are interested in family photos in Appleton WI, send me a message!
