It’s funny how the calendar turns and things begin to change. Never is that feeling more palpable than September. The school year begins again, the temps cool, the leaves just start to change colors, the sun goes down just a little quicker in the evenings. The whole rhythm changes just enough to signal that it’s time for a new season. Though I don’t really want the warmth to go away, there is a certain excitement that comes with September. For me, Fall is my busiest season and this year is shaping up to be the same.
If you haven’t booked for Fall, please let me know ASAP as my dates are filling in fast. Also, look for my official Mini-Express announcement coming soon. Until then, enjoy some lovely images from recent sessions and one very special wedding!
Summer don’t go! Though getting back to school and little routines feel good, I’m not ready for the temps to cool down just yet. I love the flowers and seasonal food of summer along with seemingly endless warm evenings. But all good things must come to end and Fall is always a lovely season too. It’s been a busy and fun summer with lots of time outdoors. So many families, babies, seniors, and some professional marketing photography as well. Here’s a peek of some of the sessions.
Hope you are savoring the last golden drops of this season as we all get ready for the next one!
We are mid-summer and it is so wonderful to be warm, and dare I say, hot?? Wildflowers abound and at this midpoint, we’ve settled into our summer groove with an eye on what’s to come, but also holding on to these long, warm, golden evenings with toes freed and cold treats. I love summer sessions- they’re so laid back and easy going. It’s typically lovely with color everywhere and golden light (even despite the bugs ;)).
Seniors, newborns, birthday milestones, and grandparent sessions! Such a fun time of year!! (PS: if you don’t know what to get your parents for birthday/holiday/etc.- it’s time with their grandkids and photos to remember it by- call me ;)).
Now is the time where things ramp up, so if you’d like to get on the calendar, please contact me today. The next season (which will for the moment remain nameless), is around the corner.
Enjoy some smiles along with the flip flops, ice cream, s’mores, and swimming a while longer!!!

Longer, warmer days, things growing outside, flip flops and skirts, delay between posts… it must be summer! Summer is a special time in Wisconsin, especially when April lasts 3 extra months. It has been wonderful to be back outside with families, enjoying the beautiful seasonal blooms, and long warm evenings. Summer is a great time to get the clan together, and meet some sweet new babies. I love it when the kiddies get to run free through the fields and babies get all snuggled up no matter the season.
Happy to be spending lots of time out at Crossroads Community Farm as well, helping them document their story and seeing all the beauty that nature provides this season. More on that to come!
For now, here are some wonderful siblings, new babies, and love to go around. Hope you are enjoying these wonderful warm days at last!

I think Spring is coming… it looks like it is anyway, maybe if it doesn’t feel like it at the moment. Let’s hope so since my Spring Mini-Express Sessions will be held on May 11th. In the meantime, it’s been all about newborns. I have been enjoying working with some adorable, sweet little babies this year and their adoring parents.
This little lady was very excited for her photo session and was ready for the camera. Even the family fur baby was ready to join in. I love how the first “baby” instinctively knows it’s time to protect the new little baby in the house.
Contact me via email or Facebook if you are interested in the Spring Mini-Express session or if you’d like to try a summer session! In the meantime, enjoy some sweet snuggles :).
Is it just me or are there a lot of new babies this year? Either way, it’s exciting! This family had me out for a Mama & Baby Package to get some maternity pictures and then a newborn session with their new arrival. It is so fun for me to get to know these families and be a part of such an amazing moment in their lives. A new little one is such a major life event for families and I am so honored to be there to capture it for them.
I am also proud to be listed again as one of the Best Maternity Photographers in Madison by Expertise.com . Thank you for your support!
Without further ado, here are some sweet snuggly smiles for your day!
Well maybe a bit behind on the new year’s resolution for timely posts… but here it is anyway! 🙂 February is typically a quieter month where I get things in order, but it’s still a great time to plan for the year ahead. This (last) month, I did get to work with a couple of families indoors, but am also very excited to begin working with Crossroads Community Farm in Cross Plains to photograph their farm and produce for Marketing purposes. It was fun to see what yummy veggies they still have in storage and watch as they prep the greenhouses for another year.
My background in Marketing has had me working more with small businesses for promotion, social media, events, and profile pictures as of late. Local organic food, CSA, family farms, and all things Wisconsin make my heart beat a happy tune, so working with this farm on their photography needs is super exciting for me.
Find regular updates of what I’m up to on Instagram @carolinemariephoto. Check out what’s happening on the farm with Farmer Cassie @crossroadscommunityfarm. And also consider supporting your local farmer! 🙂
PS: If you are a small business and have photographic needs, contact me and we can chat. Enjoy!
The new year is off to a wonderful start with families, new parents to be, and new babies. A few fearless individuals braved the cold which resulted in some lovely winter backdrops. Other indoor sessions offer a chance to use window light to provide some interesting contrast to our sessions. A sweet 11 day old also was so alert and ready for her debut, while some parents to be shared their excitement with me. Such a fun way to begin the year and I cannot wait to follow up with the expecting family to meet their new arrival in a few short weeks!
Hope you are keeping warm this January and happy 2019!!
