Burling Family {Cumberland, WI Family Portraits}

I've known Nicole and Jake for a long time and have been honored to document the major milestones in their lives. Nicole and Jake have a gorgeous baby girl, Gia and are expecting a new baby in a couple months. We had a good time avoiding the rain and getting some portraits! I can't wait to come back in September and meet Grant! :)

Since we were at Jake's parents, we got a few portraits of them as well - to celebrate their 30th anniversary!

See more - coming soon!

Catching Up, Part 2 {Shoot 52! :: Weeks 15-25}

Summer is here! When it hasn't been raining here in western Wisconsin, the weather has been absolutely gorgeous! Today is a "catching up" day - I posted a bunch of photos from this spring on Facebook and I'm going to get through the last 10 weeks (with some doubles) of my Shoot 52! project.

My mom got a new puppy, Finn. He's much bigger now!

My husband, Paul, had a drummer from Uganda, Sam, come work with his music classes at school.

Spring fishing on the Mississippi is great - but can be a little cold!

We went to Mall of America with my niece, Adley & my mom's boyfriend's grandson, Dylan
Sea Life Aquarium

We also saw Sam at a gallery opening.

Details might be my favorite parts of weddings...

We took a Como Zoo trip with pretty much the whole family!

I love handmade (easy!) gifts from students. This is from a preschooler.

Sleepy Oliver! (I think I'm doing pretty well with not posting too many pictures of him...)

We knew summer was really here when we were out in the boat on the evening of Paul's last day of work for the school year. Aaaah. :)

Arnold Family {River Falls, WI Newborn and Family Portraits}

I love when I get to see families every year! It has actually been less than a year since I last saw Jess, Lukas and Amelia. This time, though, I got to meet the newest member of their family - Brennan!

We started out inside, where their normally sleepy baby knew something was different...and wanted to be wide awake to experience all of it. :) Brennan was such a calm baby and did great, even if we only got a couple sleepy pictures!

After we finished indoors, we headed to the park. Unfortunately, we weren't able to get any of Brennan alone here but we got some great family portraits!

I couldn't decide between these next two - adorable!

See more - coming soon!
