A taste of fall | Milwaukee Family Photography

A little bit of fall in the air and this sweet family.  Perfection.

Water and Sand.

These three little guys brighten up my day every single time I see them.  They are So.Much.Fun. Major props to their awesome parents for letting this happen! 

Will.I.Am is 18 months!

Time sure does fly when you're cute and having fun.

Family

Beautiful family.  Beautiful day.

By the water

In the midst of countless cold and rainy fall days, we finally lucked out and were graced with this amazing backdrop. It was hard to believe it was Lake Michigan out there.

I loved seeing this beautiful family again...and meeting their newest little gem.

The hair, the wrist rolls, the smile, and then...elephants!  I mean, what more could I ask for?

Sights of Summer {3}

My little rockstars both (yep...both) had bone graft surgery last week (which, in layman's terms, means they took bone from their skull and grafted it into their gums to fill in the spots where they had deficient bone growth secondary to their cleft lip/palate).  They did amazing and are recovering really well, but the rest of our summer is now dedicated to recovery, which means very limited physical activity and a soft diet (not fun when you're 8.  Or 37).

If you've noticed my posts have been a bit sparse, that is why.  We dedicated our extra time to helping the girls have as much fun (and eating all of their favorite foods) as they could prior to surgery.   They did humor me by allowing me to take them on a little shoot prior to the big day though (if we promised to let them go swinging).

I cannot say enough, how proud of them we are.  They've handled this entire thing with more grace than I ever could have expected and I can say, without a doubt, that I shed far more tears than they did throughout this ordeal.

I'm truly the luckiest mama. <3

But those cheeks...

I feel like it was yesterday that I was taking this little man's newborn photos.  Time flies...and cheeks become even more fantastic. ;-)

Four and Fabulous.

I love getting to see this cutie every year around her birthday and to see how her sweet little personality changes.  This year, she even drew me pictures for my refrigerator <3.

This little grassy field has turned into one of my favorite places to shoot.  There is frequently amazing filtered sunlight pouring over the field, but not this day.  Just as we got there, the skies turned grey so we only stayed for a few minutes before they opened up...just long enough for the girls to start their crowns of clover, one of my favorite things they create every year.  <3 Jenna Stoll Photography | Milwaukee, WIJenna Stoll Photography Milwaukee

It poured buckets for a few minutes and then this...

the "s" word

I'm still catching up on summer and fall blog posts...but couldn't resist sharing this now.  We had our first snowfall and although I wasn't quite ready for it (mentally), IT. WAS. BEAUTIFUL.

...and my two goofballs had a blast :)

Unscripted.  Unposed.  Real life in the backyard.

what three looks like

This is what three looks like at the beach.  This peanut enjoyed every moment of that sand and water...and of course her special heart shaped rock.
