We met on an unusually warm day at the beach in Chesterton. I had expected a rather empty beach, but instead found that many were out and about enjoying the sweet sunshine and mild air. Jill, a senior at LaCrosse, has to have one of the pretties smiles I’ve had the pleasure of seeing. Right off the bat I could tell she’s one of those happy-go-lucky girls. A delight to work with! The subtle colors of sunset appeared over the glasslike water, and set the mood for the session. It was a day to rejoice in one last hurrah before winters blanket decended. I think that’s one good reason to spin about, don’t you?


Just about all leaves had fallen, and the air was chilly, but this family was full of fun. When greenery has left us we can always look for those lovely tall grasses for pretty scenery. They provide the perfect place to play in. We began just before sunset and ended with that pretty pink twilight afterglow. Here are some of my favorites from the session.

Asher’s one year session was a blast! I think he wore more cake than he ate, and looked a bit like a smurf when he finished, but boy was it fun. What a great opportunity it’s been to capture your first year of milestones! Happy Birthday Asher!

Have a look back at his year of “grow with me” sessions: newborn, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months.
