  • Kurtzhals Family - Rice Lake Family Photographer

    We photographed Matt & Yvonne's wedding and have had the pleasure of continuing to photograph them - now with thier two boys!  I am sharing some of our favorites from their session.  I enjoy the more interactive or 'relationship' images of family more often then the 'everyone look happy and smile' poses, but I see the beauty of both and work to give families both options.  There are different places in your home to display the different styles.  The images of Carter below are great artwork for decorating in a bedroom.  They are fun and playful and would be beautiful in a large size.  The image of Calvin is more like a portrait and you can see the spark in his eyes.  When you photograph your children or are having someone else photograph them, try not to make them too aware of the camera.  Try watching and waiting and photograph them when they aren't looking directly at you.  When someone becomes camera aware, they often tend to stiffen up or fake it - you know what I mean, you probably do it too!

    Dad was just helping Carter in the river.  I love these timeless images.  

  • Bowen Family - Rice Lake, Wi Family Photographer

    I had so much fun working with this young family.  We have photographed a few of their friends weddings over the last few years, so that is our connection.  It's great to have connections!  For Father's Day, Leiah gave Cory the Pinwheel with four, story telling images of his relationship with their oldest daughter.  It was framed with a rich brown mat like this and was beautiful!  I wanted to keep it in my studio to show everyone, so I thought I'd share it this way instead.  I love photographing a series of images that show personality or relationship.  It's a really fun thing to do with your kids.  When you photograph them, zoom in really close and fill the frame with their face and photograph a few different expressions as you have them dance around, or look mad, or share about their favorite book.  These images are priceless in the years to come.  Our family albums have lots of little series because I have to keep every image that is showing their unique personalities.  I'm so glad we have them.  Our first daughter is going to be 14 and her pretty blue eyes are still captivating.
