Storm + Sierra | Rustic Sunset Engagement | Shiocton, WI

Summer golden light, it doesn’t come any better than this! It also comes with a swarm of mosquitos, but we’ll skip that detail and just say these images were worth the 10+ bug bites!

I feel like it’s safe to say I’ve hit a new “milestone” as a photographer! You see, I photographed Sierra over 5 years ago for her senior portraits and now here she is, engaged and one of my 2020 brides! I’m so honored to have amazing clients like her that stick with me and allow me to document the milestones in their life!

Everything about this rustic location I recently discovered speaks to my style! Scroll below to view a few of my favorites!

The Selles

Spring Family Session

La Sage Bottoms Natural Area – New London, WI

Celebrating two years with their little firecracker, Oaklyn. I love getting back into the swing of things with these outdoor family sessions! As much as I love my studio, I definitely start to feel a little pent up by the end of a long winter. It’s so fun being in the wide-open spaces to play, interact, and capture these fleeting moments.

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!

Bring on the boots, hats, and….dresses!?

The Krueger Sisters

Yep, you read that right! All four sisters now married, the first for 9 years and the latest for only 1 month, and their Mother came up with a brilliant idea: Let’s do a photo shoot with all four of my daughters in their wedding dresses!

From the start I fell in love with the idea! I mean, I’ve never actually seen anything like this and there are no boundaries! With that we started to snowball different ideas. The rustic theme was derived from our location, the parents home and maple syrup shack. The plaid mugs, hot cocoa, boots, hats and blankets were the perfect additions to this chilly November day. The hot cocoa may or may not have had a little extra something added to keep the girls warm!

Let me guess, your thinking “What’s with the pictures on the couch?” Truth is the girls love the TV hit series “Friends” and if you’re a Friends fan you already know where this is headed! Their goal was to recreate the episode where the friends were chilling on the couch in their wedding dresses. So, did we nail it or what!? Plus the inside of their sugar shack is too cute not to photograph.

If you’re in need of all natural maple syrup or honey, be sure to visit the Krueger’s! They are too kind, and happily gave me a tour and sent me home with a jar of honey!
