more... again

this session has taken me so long... because I've been slammed with work, but also because there were so many great ones that editing and narrowing was so hard for me. They are SUCH a CUTE family ;)

happy happy boy!

I love these, the boys are dolls and mom & dad in the background are so much fun.

big brother just loves little brother SO MUCH -- how sweet is this?

stylish mom... SO beautiful

thanks for all the fun at the session you guys, it was so great to see you (and thanks for being to patient - hope it was worth the wait)

more of the Hoylo's

This a one of my very dear friends, Jessica, and her kids.

These kids have a very special place in my heart, so does their mom and dad.

I LOVE this one! Hannah & Jake really are so good with each other, and you can tell they REALLY love each other, we got a ton of photos of the 2 of them together, that doesn't happen very often with kids this age.

and here is one of Jess.... isn't she beautiful? I think so, inside and out.

sneak peek for Jessica!

something a little different

haven't posted in a while because I've been working on a different little (big) photography project the past couple weeks. 

This is Gudrun...

...she is a VERY talented fabric and quilt designer (see more of her stuff here)

Nikolai's teacher referred her to me, I've been helping her with some product shots and ideas to design a cover for her NEW book she is publishing. It was a good fit since I could utilize my graphic design and photography to help her out.

so a couple days we headed to the studio for some fun shots of her designs. They are SUPER COOL and not what I pictured when I heard "quilting." 

then a couple days we shot photos at her house and he neighbors houses.

this little guy was SO GOOD, and SO CUTE.

I also shot flat shots of all her designs (about 20 of them)

so for all you quilters out there, check Gudrun's stuff out, I am truly amazed.

this was something a little different than the average day, and actually was a nice "break" for me. but now I am anxious to get to editing my photo sessions that have been on hold (you know who you are ~ sorry for the delay).

Here's Joey... and she's TWO! I've been taking her pictures since she was 1 week old. Soon she will have a little brother or sister to add to the Koth mix!
She is such a little cutie, but boy these 2 year olds make me work, I was totally sweating.
These tutu's have been a hit with the girls I have been taking pictures of lately, makes them want to dance.

This little series shows Joey's personality (and facial expressions)

I LOVE her eyes...

Thanks guys... can't wait to meet the new little one.


These 2 little girls are daughters of my friend Tami. We were college tennis buddies and spent numerous hours on the court and in vans across Wisconsin... ah, the good 'ol days. 

Anyways, they came to visit me at the studio, it had been too long since I had seen Tami and I had never met these little sweeties. They made me really work, but they were so funny and so full of spunk and energy. 

Getting a shot of the 2 of them together was challenging, as is for ANY 1 and 2-1/2 year olds, but I think these few turned out super cute. 

I love their personalities, such happy girls!
they LOVED to dance!

Thanks for coming, it was so great to see you!

Here is Sydney's BIG brother Alex - we spent some time in the studio with Alex and had so much fun! 

I just love his giggles :)
