My kid hates getting his picture taken! If you’ve said this before, it may be true. I don’t know too many people, kids or adults, who LOVE getting their picture taken, especially during a professional family photography session. For adults, it’s often because they don’t know what to do, how to stand, or what the […]

We kept Ethan’s senior photography session in Waunakee short and sweet, just the way he wanted it. Sometimes guys don’t want to make a big to-do about their senior photos.

I’ve known Lyle’s family for many years, and I ended up watching her sister because we both have type 1 diabetes. Lyle’s family is heavily involved with […]
