STEINHAFEL FAMILY | Madison Wisconsin

Madison Wisconsin Fall Family Photographer

I loved meeting this family! Along with knowing they take trips together to see the world! When I was younger my parents took us all over the U.S.A, even though my siblings and I fought a lot – I still hold those memories close! 

This is their story!

Mike and I both came to Madison from “near Milwaukee” towns and never left. Its been incredible growing up with this city – seems like each new phase of our lives brings new things to explore. Our parents share a wedding day – 6.26.76 – so it seemed only fitting for us to incorporate those numbers into our own – 6.02.06. Our wedding was a great celebration of us, of family and friends, of Madison – rehearsal dinner at Memorial Union, ceremony at the Captiol, reception at the Madison Club, featured local drafts, family time at the Farmers Market the next day…and I think it actually speaks to who we are, now, as a family of four, loving all thing Madison!

We are usually go-go-go, visiting old favorites and, still, finding things to explore. UW campus, the Unions, the Captiol, Farmers Market, art museums, the children’s museum, local breweries, foodie-food, Kids in the Rotunda, Governor Nelson State Park, the lakes, festivals, live music. We had an awesome time this summer tracking down all the Buckys in the Bucky Parade, little road trips every weekend, perfect excuse to check out less-frequented corners of town and old favs alike.

Get to know their rad kids!

Brock is an inquisitive soul, observant, independent and a good big brother. His favs seem to be constantly evolving especially with the new world of kindergarten. Star Wars (knows a ton of facts despite not having seen the movie!), college and professional football. Is really into drawing “football symbols” (mascots, etc.) with his dad, car makes and models, the “sound of letters,” soccer. He likes PJ Masks and Pixar movies, fruit snacks and goldfish and any kind of sweet. His bestie continues to be a monkey named Bongo and has a green lovey he cuddles up with at night.

Wes is easy going, has a great sense of humor, is in the midst of a verbal explosion – trying new words all the time, mimicking the ones he doesn’t quite have yet in fantastic charades fashion. Always trying to keep up with his big bro. Wes loves John Deere tractors (has a little mow-mow he carries around) and PUPPIES! Likes Paw Patrol and Curious George. And usually has his nigh-nigh (blue blanket) in tow. 

Just listen to the rad things they do and see!

We love to travel!! In the last two years we’ve visited France, Ireland, Germany and Austria. plus some awesome sites closer to home. Yes, with the boys! We actually just got back from a long weekend in Chicago. Wherever we go, its awesome sharing adventures, experiencing the sites and cultures through their eyes. The kiddos have been such an amazing way to connect with people, wherever we go. And we find those experiences following us home in cool ways.

We were in Munich in May and got into the soccer craze. So in June/July for the World Cup – we were all in – picked some teams to root for (of course Germany was one – what a disappointment!), tested out a few local establishments for game viewing. By far our favorite was the Nomad – by the end of the tournament, the boys were on a first name basis with staff. Brock now references the Nomad by name…I think that’s an okay thing?!

We also, if you haven’t guessed it already, love taking in UW sporting events, hockey, volleyball, football, basketball…though half the time its an excuse to see the band, both of the boys have UW “marching shoes.” And for Christmas last year, Brock got a red trombone so, yea, they’re fans. Mike and I love live music. We just saw Jeff Tweedy (again) and how excited is Mike about those Pumpkin tickets…

SCHAFER FAMILY FAIR SESSION | Stoughton Wisconsin
Stoughton Wisconsin Fair Family Session | Schafer Family Y'all, family fair sessions need to be more of a thing! This is the 2nd time I got to photograph on fairgrounds, and I am HOOKED! This is the best way to get unique photos along with being able to be present with your family! Getting those family memories captured so you can be in the photo! So you can throw those rings to get that fish that may die in a few days WITH your kids!  I loved when Karly emailed me with this idea! Karly is another amazing photographer in the area, and she knows all too well how she is NOT in the family photos at all times. This was her way to get the ...

Kraus Family / Bukholt Park Stevens Point Wisconsin
I cannot express how much I adore this family and their session! A beautiful sun filled session at Bukholt Park in Stevens Point Wisconsin! We played on the swings, danced and ran in the grass, and has so many giggles! These are great kids with even better people as their parents! Scheduling this session hasn't been easy, weather was not our friend for 4 different dates. Mother Nature had other plans  for sure with rain, extreme winds and just plain too cold and not green this past Spring. But, whenever this happens with my clients, the date that finally works is always filled with the most beautiful light ever. This is why I tell clients wh ...

Buchholz Family – Madison WI Family Photographer
This family was a BLAST to photograph! I met them at Olin Park - one of my favorite places to photograph - because there are SO many options! Along with being super easy for families to find! A family of 4 with 2 very energetic boys who are always up for adventure!  Owen, who will be 10 next month, and Sawyer, who is 5 - these kids kept me on my toes that is for sure! Photographing families is always an adventure - you never know what your going to get. But, when an amazing family like this one comes around - you just let them be them. Boys will be boys and I just let them run around, laugh, make silly faces and "hug" one another. Even if ...
