This weekend, I had the great pleasure of capturing photos of the newest member of my own family. I am so in love with this little lady. At a whole 12 days old, she is already a little spitfire. Most newborn shoots consist of me posing and dressing tiny humans. Not this one. Jaelynn wanted nothing to do with outfits, bows, flowers, or even a camera. The lights were fun, though. I am just happy we managed a few good shots.
As for the parents? They are the two most perfect parents I have even encountered (but I may be biased). I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do!
On Thanksgiving weekend, I had the great pleasure of going out to Baraboo to take the Greenwood family photos. The views were breathtaking and the dogs were adorable, but the people were the absolute best part. The Greenwood's were SO welcoming, their adoration for one another is SO obvious (as you can see in the photos), and their hiking skills are SO above mine. A BIG thank you to the entire Greenwood family for such an amazing shoot. People like you are the reason I love photography!!
Earlier in November, the Logterman family joined me at Devil's Lake to take some family photos. I cannot say enough how fun this family is. It might have been cold, but that didn't stop the oodles of love and laughter coming from these four. Seriously one of my favorite family photoshoots to date (and I think it may show in the photos). There were so many good ones that I had a hard time choosing for this blog post.
A huge thank you to each of you: Kevin, Meg, Hannah, and Cody, you are all fantastic people and so great to work with.
I love family photos!! Todd and Katie's were no exception. I also love fall, so being at the UW-Madison Lakeshore Nature Preserve on a wonderfully chilly Thursday evening was perfect. There were smiles, pranks, eye-rolls, and of course OODLES of love. To top it all off, the UW marching band was practicing for Saturday's game, so we even had some music to add to the absolutely ideal evening.
Thank you Katie and Todd as well as your beautiful children for joining me, posing for far too many photos, and freezing your booties off with me. I had so much fun!
The best part of every engagement photoshoot is seeing the happiness on both the their faces. This was especially the case with Jamey and Becky. Even though it was freezing, their love for each other, their constant smiles, and their laughter kept us all warm. It's great when I get to see the happiness of two clients, but it is EVEN BETTER when you get to see the happiness of a family member and their fiancé. Becky and Jamey, I cannot wait to be a part of your big day. You're bliss is contageous and I am so happy for the two of you.
Guess what! That's right, CorissaCaptures does headshots now! We bring a portable studio right into your office/business and take head shots for everyone in your company.
Actuate Improvement (an interior remodeling company) just recently had CorissaCaptures in for company headshots and it was SO much fun. Everyone on their team was fun and excited about the task on hand.
At Actuate Improvement, they take the time to understand your goals for this interior space, how you’ll use it, and your personal style. From there, they create an interior design illustration to show the vision for the project. After your approval, a project team is assigned, and their friendly and expert craftsman build the vision as planned. And, y'all, they are so good!! Seriously, check them out: https://actuatellc.com.
THIS right here, THIS photoshoot is the reason I love photography. Newborn photos are my absolute favorite, there truly is no competition, and it is exciting every single time, but this shoot is so much more than that. This is about pure joy, pure love, and pure adoration by every single member of the Bissen family for their newest family member, Hannah.
During this shoot, we laughed, we said "cheese," we said "pickle," we read books, dressed up for the holidays. It was one busy and FUN evening. Beyond grateful to have captured these precious moments.
I had an absolute blast at my very first senior photo session thanks to Cody and his family. This kind, smart, and all-around fantastic human will be graduating in just a few months. So, watch out world because in 4-6 years you will be watching this guy announce/recap your favorite sports games. Congratulations on your final year in high school and I wish you the absolute best with all of your future endeavors. Enjoy every second, Cody!
It was a hot Sunday evening (and by hot, I mean I sweat through my backpack full of equipment kind of hot) on the outskirts of Baraboo, WI. We visited a family farm and finished the night at a notebook-worthy park. The charm of the night was uncanny. They laughed, they drank, they toasted, they danced, they played, they popped some champagne. It was absolutely magical. The true power of love was on full display between these two. Every single photo shows their nine-year history as well as their bright future together simultaneously. I am in love with every single shot and feeling so blessed to have the opportunity to take their engagement photos. Words cannot describe how happy I am for Ryan and Katie. I cannot wait to see what their future holds.
On a 95 degree Memorial Day, the Pingel family and I spent our morning at Olbrich Gardens. This place and these people were beyond perfect, even in the blistering heat. This growing family (all of whom happen to be a part of my family!!) is beyond precious. I am grateful for the opportunity to capture their love for one another year after year and am so happy I got to meet new baby Brody. He melted my heart within seconds. I cannot wait to watch both of these boys (and their family) grow.
