The Kroenke Homestead

Winter Homestead Session

Shawano, Wisconsin
March 10th, 2018

Let’s take a walk…a walk through time, through the legacy of a Wisconsin dairy farming family. A walk, that after three generations of back breaking work, passion, and perseverance has come to an end…

Here we are, just days before the auction. When I saw the flyer for Mark and Kathy’s farm sale I felt compelled to reach out to them. Small family farms, such as theirs, hold so much history. History that can only be preserved through memories, stories and photographs. Although I do not come from a farming family, I come from a community that values agriculture, and that has instilled an immense respect in me for the families that work countless hours, 7 days a week to support, feed and fuel our country. ┬áMy hope was that by documenting the farm while it was still in operation would make this transition a little easier, knowing they have something they can physically look back on, cherish and share with future generations.

Friday was the last day…The last day he will rise before sun up to walk through that old milk house door, into the 110 year old barn that was home to a herd of 80. The auction has now come and gone. The equipment will run again in new fields. The herd has found new homes. And the legacy of the Kroenke family will forever have a lasting impact on the agricultural community and we thank them greatly for that.

It has been said “all good things must come to an end.” I don’t know that a farmer is ever really ready for that time. It’s in his blood. It’s what he knows. It’s what he enjoys. But if there were ever a time to retire, it was now. I wish Mark and Kathy the best in this next chapter of their life. May they continue to be blessed with good health and new adventures be on their horizon. God Bless!

Delle | Day 11

In-Home Newborn Session

Loving the fun, unique elements and textures we were able to incorporate in Delle’s in-home newborn session: a genuine buffalo hide, a huge moose antler, lovely pine hardwood floors, a stone fireplace and that amazing book shelf! If you couldn’t tell, Dad is a little bit into hunting and trapping, and Mom loves to read! Oh, and just look at how cute and photogenic that sweet big sister Eve is!

The Gutts

Summer Family Session

Mosquito Hill Nature Center – New London, WI

It’s been far too long since I’ve featured a family on the blog! I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share the sweet faces of these handsome boys! We had an absolutely perfect, late summer night. We wrapped up the session with a few solo shots of Griffin for his first birthday!

Brad and Jamey | Engaged

Cave Point – Sturgeon Bay, WI

Gahhhh! I just love the mixture of beach and woods throughout this session. We had perfect timing as it rained right before and after the session, and we were able to capture some of the late day sunlight. Cave Point definitely doesn’t disappoint and is truly unique to Wisconsin and the Lake Michigan shoreline.
