Happy HALLOWEEN!!!! We thought today was the perfect day to share images from one of our favorite parts of the fall season – pumpkin hunting!! :) Parker makes everything more fun and this year he was an especially good boy as, together, we would set our eyes on the biggest pumpkins in the whole patch. Luckily, Butch is very capable of hauling our picks all the way to the wagon and then onto our front steps. There’s a funny thing about pumpkin hunting; you don’t quite realize just how HUGE the pumpkins you’re selecting are until you get them home and they consume your front porch steps! Hope the trick-or-treaters don’t mind, and we hope you all have a fun and safe Halloween!!

Love, Kelsy & Butch

Rows and rows of charming trees with red polka dots, crisp fall air, and a family tradition: apple picking! We’ve always wanted to photograph a complete session at an apple orchard in the fall! :) Luckily Emily & Michael loved the idea as well, and we had so much fun with them and their two beautiful girls, Olivia & Charlotte, as we made our way around Helene’s Hilltop Orchard! This family is truly too cute for words and they’re an inspiration to us for the kind of family we hope to one day have.

Emily & Michael, thank you SO much for choosing us for your family photography!! :)

Love, Kelsy & Butch

We had the chance to spend a sunny afternoon with Samantha and Robb in beautiful Door County WI and loved the oodles of time and vibrant fall colors we were able to play with while creating portraits together. Wedding days can fly by so quickly and it was amazing to slow down with the two of them all done up in their wedding attire! From the shores of Lake Michigan in Jacksonport to About Thyme Farm’s stunning barn in Bailey’s Harbor, we had a blast with Samantha & Robb and hope they cherish these images for years to come!

Love, Kelsy & Butch

We’ve had the absolute pleasure of photographing this family of three several times over the last couple years, and each time we leave their home with THE biggest smile on our faces!! Throughout Joachim’s first year we saw him and his Mom & Dad, Dominee & Hector, every three months for his newborn, 4 month, 8 month and 1 year portraits. This time, well over half a year had passed and we couldn’t BELIEVE what an adorable big boy Joachim has become! We cycled through a few of our tricks and, before we knew it, all five of us were having a blast bringing out Joachim’s laughter and smiles for us to capture!!

Dominee & Hector, thank you so much for having us over to your lovely home to photograph the two of you loving on Joachim. We consider it a complete honor to be your family photographer!

Love, Kelsy & Butch

Fall weekends in Door County, Wisconsin tend to be on the busier side. Fall colors line the shores and back roads everywhere you turn, and the busy roads in Ephraim, Sister Bay, Fish Creek and Bailey’s Harbor are usually bumper-to-bumper with cars angling to get to the next beautiful spot. We’re not sure words will do the feeling we all experienced justice, but after Katie & Nick’s ceremony at Ephraim Moravian Church overlooking Ephraim the entire wedding party gathered at the volunteer Ephraim Firestation, where Nick’s father so honorably served. One photo we hoped to get was the entire wedding party in front of the station, which is located right on highway 42 in probably the busiest part of Door County. As we were arranging Katie & Nick and their awesome wedding party, the traffic just stopped! As in, LINES of cars were graciously waiting for us to get the photos we needed! Yup, Katie and Nick stopped traffic on their wedding day on one of the busiest Door County weekends of the entire year!!

Their wedding day was blessed with rain, but you would never know it from the looks on Katie & Nick’s faces, or the faces of their guests! From the moment we arrived to the walnut cabin at Gordon Lodge in Baileys Harbor where Katie was getting into her dress, we could tell the only thing that mattered was that Katie & Nick were tying the knot. The non-stop day of celebrating also included a tour of the County via the Door County Trolley winding through Peninsula State Park and just about every colorful back road they could find on the way from their Ephraim ceremony to their BEAUTIFUL Gordon Lodge reception. After sweet and entertaining toasts, Katie & Nick enjoyed adorable cupcakes and danced the night away with all of the guests, who weren’t the least bit shy about crashing the dance floor! :)

Katie & Nick, photographing a love as strong & happy as yours is truly a blessing for us! We know the two of you will have a long, joyful and family-centered marriage. Capturing these moments that you’ll be able to look back on for a lifetime makes us burst with joy!

Love, Kelsy & Butch
