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’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

This family portrait session includes three of our very favorite things: Door County’s gorgeous fall colors, an ADORABLE family who we are lucky to call great friends, and Butch’s parents beautiful land in Jacksonport! It warms our hearts watching this family grow, spending time with them, and especially getting to take photos that they will cherish for a lifetime. :)

Cain, Terry, Olive, Stella, and Ruby are an example of the kind of family we one day hope to have. Especially after spending the day with them earlier this month, as we had a blast goofing around during the session and also enjoying a cookout and giant bonfire with them afterwards (complete with s’mores, of course)!! So much love to this beautiful family!

Love, Kelsy & Butch

Kris, Nick and Carl are a breath of fresh air and an absolute blast to photograph! They invited us to their family’s beautiful property in Door County and we had a perfect fall afternoon to play with them. :) After photographing Kris and Nick’s wedding in this very spot just over two years ago, we were thrilled to see them again not only for a mini family session, but also for dinner at one of our favorites – Wild Tomato! Kris and Nick also shared some VERY exciting news with us which you’ll likely figure out once you get to the last photo in this post (if not before). We’re so excited for this wonderful family that we’re lucky to also call friends!!!

Love, Kelsy & Butch

How adorable are these three!! After photographing Lesley & Jason’s engagement and amazing backyard wedding, we were crossing our fingers that we might have the honor of meeting their sweet little man on one of their trips back to Wausau. As it turned out, they were home just a couple weeks ago and we adored capturing them as the loving parents that they are to their already-trendy little one, Auden. As we’ve jokingly mentioned to Lesley & Jason before, they are truly one of the most creative, stylish and fun couples we know, so it didn’t surprise us one bit when Auden was dressed in the cutest outfit on the planet!! He loved flying high in the sky in his Mom & Dad’s arms, and seeing his reflection in the mirror brought out so many cute little expressions! :)

Lesley & Jason, thank you guys so much for spending the afternoon with us! We’re so happy for you – you sure have a sweetheart on your hands and we cannot wait to see Auden grow!

Love, Kelsy & Butch
