You may remember that I did a sweet family session with my friends Mike and Holly last fall. (You can find that session HERE and HERE. ) Mike and Holly are a precious part of our church here in Madison and its been so fun getting to know them over the last 4 years!
This session was a natural offshoot of their fall session – a celebration of them and the family God has blessed them with! Holly approached me a few weeks ago and asked if I was available on a certain evening at a certain time. She wanted to surprise her husband on their anniversary with additional photos at the park where they were married. How sweet!
Their family began when the two met in downtown Madison during an outreach ministry. Mike and Holly were then married at one of my favorite locations, Madison’s Olin Park. Fast foward eleven years, and they keep busy with their fixer-upper farmhouse, mini farm, and 6 kids! (Holly writes a hilarious blog about their adventures and life in general and you can check it out HERE)
Holly and Mike made my job so easy. They were so excited to get all dressed up (Holly rented a dress from Rent The Runway!) and they gave me lots of time to use the gorgeous golden light we found! PS: in case you wondered, Michael also had a few surprises up his sleeve for Holly that evening!)
These two have a contagious joy about them that makes photographing them so much fun! Just look at their adorable giggles!
It was so fun to get to create additional images for this sweet family to enjoy and preserve for generations to come! Mike and Holly, you have such a sweet love for each other and your children and I am so blessed to know you!
