Jeff and Tiffany brought Max to visit Great-Grandma Beth in Madison a few weeks ago. We brought our location setup to the Bethel Assisted Living Suites for some family pictures. Tiffany’s mom RoseAnn joined in the fun. It seems like Jeff and Tiffany’s wedding was just yesterday.

Hohweiler Reunion – South Dakota Family Photography at Camp Lakodia

We photography many reunions and families at Camp Lakodia on the west side of Lake Herman. The Hohweilers just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary and everyone came home to help celebrate.


Pekas sisters – Sioux Falls Family Photography


The Pekas sisters came to see us months ago. They snuck out of the house and came from Sioux Falls early one morning as part of a surprise for their mom.

Mom got her presents a few days ago so we can finally show off a few images on the blog.


Thompson family – South Dakota Family Photography


We photographed the Thompson family a while back. They took advantage of our complimentary family session that came with Dax’s senior pictures. We did Deidre’s senior pictures just a couple of years ago. Deidre is now our swim teacher so we can get faster in triathlons.

Here is their 16×20 composite.

Seth and siblings


Seth was on the move. We did get him with his siblings long enough for a few images then he was squirming away and back to playing.

Say Hi to Liberty


Liberty came to see us today with Mom, Dad and big brother Skylar.

Skylar and Mom


Skylar came with Mom for her maternity session earlier this month. Last night Mom came and picked up her wall portraits. Dad’s going to be surprised!

Dillon & siblings




Little John

Little John, one of our Baby Plan babies is no baby any more. He’s three years old now.

The whole family has been a little under the weather since sunday, but things are looking up. The coughs, sniffles, aches and pains are slowly going away. Everyone is back at school and the studio…Life is almost normal – whatever normal is this time of year.

Family Photography: Portrait Safaris


“Portrait Safaris” allow us to travel and photograph your family on location. Whether we are at Lake Madison like in this portrait of the Anderson Family or as far away as the Black Hills, we are able to capture you and your family happy and relaxed.

This summer’s first “Portrait Safari” will be at the Black Hills the first weekend in June – the same time as the Crazy Horse Volksmarch.

Please give ElizaBeth a call at the studio for more information – 1.877.586.4143.

New Year’s Baby Nicholas


Nicholas was Madison’s New Year’s Baby!

Images with Mom, Dad and older brother Isaiah adorn this portrait panel.

Family Photography: The Falor Family


Nancy teaches at our local school and also manages the Rambler Stop. They came in before Christmas for their family pictures. We thought we’d share their card with you.

We’ve been busy since the Holidays. The usual winter slowdown that affects most photographers hasn’t shown up yet. We do have room to breathe which is very important after the Holiday rush.

Playtime is coming soon…

Sioux Falls South Dakota Family Photography: Kiley & family


Kiley had one of our Playtime sessions last year. We did her senior pictures over the summer with one of her classmates from Sioux Falls. Today we did a family session with her mom and two sisters.

Baby Photography: Taylor



We’ve known Taylor’s parents a long time…way before they got married…so it’s fun to watch their family grow. Taylor came in for her 3 month pictures and we thought we would share a couple.

Family Photography: Another New Year’s Card – The White’s


Playin’ in the snow: Allen family


We took the camera outside for Allen’s family session on Saturday. We had a natural “Winter Wonderland” complete with falling snow, brisk winds and cold temps.

Chantel and Shannon were good sports through it all.

Briella and family


Briella came in for her 6 month pictures as part of our Baby Plan.

Mom and Dad joined in for a family picture just in time for Christmas.

Bernard family


Bernard’s art print features a sunset that was a bit unusual: smoke from fires in Wyoming and Montana added a bit of haze to the sky that turned yellow as the sun set slowly into the western horizon.

Fiegen family

8-09-07_fiegenposterWe are making family sessions more fun whenever we can.

After a more formal family session in the studio, we headed out with the Fiegen family to Lake Madison for a little tubing fun. Rachel & Dacey even got a chance to get into the act. We’d like to thank the Fiegen family for the great evening.

We think that their art poster turned out very cool.

Madysen turns 3

1-21-07_Madysen_NDX_7737Sometimes Dad can feel like the safest place to be.

Madysen turned 3 years old on Saturday and even though we’ve been taking her pictures since she was born, it took a few minutes for her shyness to go away. While I love the images of her laughing at she played with ElizaBeth and our daughter Rachel, this picture of Madysen holding onto Dad brings a flood of emotions to me because our own kids have grown up much already.
