The Mai Family

I have known this family for a little over two years now. Two years of getting to capture their greatest moments, my Canon and I. A country engagement, a barn wedding, an ice fishing pregnancy announcement, a Summery maternity session, an Autumn newborn shoot and now this; a willow shaded, family session in the rugged territory of Hoffman Hills. Seriously, this is one of my favorite spots on all of God's green earth (i.e., Wisconsin) with quite possibly my favorite family (shhh!)

Wilder is about to turn one. He has the biggest, sweetest personality ever. Usually part of my job is to make the little ones laugh, but this boy had me in stitches, not to mention his family. I loved this session just for the natural smiles his winning antics got out of everyone. His adoring big sister, Emelia, is so excited about approaching her golden birthday. She spotted the field of wildflowers (seriously, this location is paradise), and with her flowy, floral print dress she nearly disappeared in the camouflage of flowers. She's such a pretty and sweet little lady. But mainly, she is obsessed with her baby brother and is the best sister ever.
