Late summer is a special time, things are cooling down little by little, but things are still green and many flowers and plants are at their heights. It’s arguably the best time for a portrait session. Especially if you’re not totally into fall or spring colors. We photographed the Dickenson family at Olin Park in Madison. We know all too well the joy of having little boys fill your life with wonder and joy. Here are a few of our favorites from their session.
Kevin and Kelsey are photographer friends of ours, and we were so honored and excited to shoot their family portraits. We had some big shoes to fill as they did a great job on our own family portraits last year. When we met Kevin and Kelsey at a bridal show 3 years ago I knew we were going to be friends, it seemed way back then that we had so much in common both being a husband and wife photo/video studio, as the years have went on its become more apparent that we have a lot in common. The love of the same sports teams, two little kids each close in age, and of course our love for photography and videography. It’s so great to be able to give one another family portraits to document this crazy time in both of our lives when our kids are so little. Both of their girls Avery & Thea did great, obviously they have grown up with their parents photographing them!
Kevin & Kelsey, thanks again for letting us document this time for you guys!!!
We feel so lucky when we are able to continue documenting our clients milestones. We photographed Megan and Joe’s wedding back in 2006. (nearly 5 years ago!) And have enjoyed shooting big brother Jack’s photos since he came into their lives. I recently was able to meet up with this wonderful family again, this time at our gallery in downtown Middleton and photograph both Jack and their newest addition Elyse. (Ellie)
Below are just a few of our favorites from their session! Congrats to Megan & Joe on the addition of Ellie! – d.Look
Life seems to fly by at times, leaving us wondering where it went. I try and slow down and appreciate the little things, or at least try and remind myself to do so. As I am about to lay Kohen in his crib at night, I think to myself, “in another year he will be too big to rock…rock him a little while longer…enjoy this.” What sorts of memories do you find yourself holding on to? Maybe I am partial, half because I am so nostalgic and half because I am a photographer. But I feel so blessed to be able to share our passion for photography with others, allowing them to look back at those fleeting moments. I truly feel that having portraits done at least yearly by a professional, custom studio so important. (even if its not Creative Look) While there are ton’s of ‘quicky,’ or ‘fast food’ photo places (I don’t even dare call them studios) out there that will throw up a backdrop and have a college student with no photographical or professional experience have your children “say cheese,” this is in no way capturing the true essence of your family. It’s not truly capturing the way you smile at one another, the way your husband holds your hand as you walk, or the way your one year old dances when sung to. A custom photographer will spend time with your family (generally in your home or on location) capturing those ‘moments’ and not just the way your children or you looked at a certain time.
When Mindy contacted us to do a family photography session this fall we were so excited. We love shooting families, and were so excited to meet Mindy, Troy and their three girls. Having grown up with a little brother (who I of course love dearly) I always secretly wished I had had a sister to share clothes and secrets with. I can’t imagine all the fun these sisters must have together, and all the fun they are going to have growing up together. Derrick and I had a great time walking around downtown Middleton chatting with the Schwenn’s and taking their family portraits, can’t wait to work with them again! Here are just a few shots from their session! Stay tuned to the blog, up tomorrow is the fabulous wedding of Alexis & Ben! Can’t wait to share it! -April
