Martin Family – Madison South Dakota Family Photography

We photographed Jena, Jason and Brady at Lake Herman State Park a couple of weeks ago.

Kynley’s growing up!

Paul and Shonda – Aurora South Dakota Family Photography

We photographed Paul and Shonda as when they came in with their extended family for a reunion session. Paul and Shonda run Advanced Media Systems

More baby pictures from Kynley’s 3 month baby plan session…

On the Road Again – Waldner’s – Madison SD Family Pictures

You’ll find all of Mike and Lori’s family on the road going to and from some sort of sports event. It might be a triathlon, a half-marathon, swimming, wrestling, football or track. I get tired just thinking of all of that dedication.

Finck Family Christmas Card – Madison South Dakota Family Pictures

Another Christmas Card that we can now show you. Terry and Christie, Jordan and Lexi come every year for their Christmas portrait session.

Finck Family – Madison SD Family Pictures

Terry and Christie brought out Jordan and Lexi for their annual Christmas portrait earlier this month. Amazingly Terry and Christie have not aged at all even as their kids get older.

Gilbert Reunion – Madison South Dakota Family Pictures

We had an awesome time with the Gilbert family last month. It was great seeing my college friend Kim again. Time seems to be flying by.

If all of your family will be around for the holidays, give us a call at 586.4143 and schedule an appointment. We can handle large groups in our studio of 20 to 30+.

Pulford Family – Madison South Dakota Family Pictures

Check out some of Keri’s family’s pictures from earlier this Fall.

Mom, Dad and Kynley – Madison South Dakota Baby Photography

We do all kinds of photography but we like to think that we do the best with the little ones. While I am behind the camera, ElizaBeth is entertaining, running back and forth and getting smiles. Now Kynley was a bit too small to smile for her newborn session but that didn’t stop ElizaBeth for working her magic.

Here’s one of Mom and Dad from their maternity session.

Mader Christmas – Madison South Dakota Family Pictures

We’ve been busy with family pictures for Christmas. The madness is starting to slow down. We do have a few sessions available yet, but don’t wait to call.

Finck Christmas Cards 2010 Edition – Madison South Dakota Family Pictures

Terry, Christie, Jordan and Lexi came for family pictures last night. Now I can’t show you this year’s card just yet: I don’t want to be a spoiler, but we can show you last year’s version.

Waldner Family – Madison South Dakota Family Pictures

Mike and Lori brought their family out to the studio. It was a nice enough day that we ended up doing the entire session outside. Here are a few of their favorite images.

We do have two spots open on this Saturday for family pictures. Call ElizaBeth at the studio if you are interested – 586-4143.

Michelke Family – Madison South Dakota Family Pictures

I’ve known Debi literally all of my life. She was always hanging out at our farm place with my mother and the horses when I was growing up. Here are a few from their family session several weeks ago.

Hanson Family – South Dakota Family Photography

It has been a great Fall for outside pictures. Check out these pictures of the Hanson family.

We still have sessions available for Christmas family pictures. Call ElizaBeth at the studio: 586-4143. You get to pick out the images right away on our big screen.

Engbrecht Family Yesterday and Today – Madison South Dakota Family Photography

It’s wild to see the changes a few short years make. Here’s a sneak peak from the Engbrecht’s family session.

Lurz Family – Madison South Dakota Family Photography

Jason and family came to see us a couple of weeks ago for pictures in Rutland. We had another beautiful day for outside pictures.

We still have sessions available for pictures in time for Christmas. Right now the studio is full of activity as we finish up orders and design albums.

Stemper – Madison South Dakota Family Pictures

Pete and his family came to Rutland on one of the windiest days of October. We found enough shelter to capture some great images before moving into the studio. Here are a couple of images from their family session.

The new computers are all configured and we are quickly catching up on all of our orders. We love the speed. We will be posting more on the blog over the next two weeks. We do have a some evening sessions available before Thanksgiving. Call ElizaBeth at the studio for info: 586-4143.

Dana’s Family – Madison SD Family Pictures

All the kids know her as Mrs. Gonyo. I know her as Dana, my cousin Gary’s wife. Dana brought her family to the studio a while back for an indoor/outdoor portrait session. Here are a few of their favorites.

Carter’s Birthday Club Magnet – Madison South Dakota Children’s Photography

Carter came in for his Birthday session a while ago and Mom just picked up his pictures today. As part of the Birthday Club, we made up a magnet of Carter’s images.

Carter was one of our participants in our Caring Cuties Contest. You can vote for your favorite Cutie through March 25th.

We would love to take pictures of your little one on their Birthday. Call the studio at (605)586-4143 to set up an appointment.

Marv and Ruth

Christmas presents come in many forms. We like the gift of portraits. Marv and Ruth came up in early December for their session.

Ruth has sold Avon for years. If you’ve needed your washer or dryer repaired in the last 50 years, Marv has probably been to your house.

They were first the parents of my classmate David. They were then our next door neighbors. We now call them friends.

Marv and Ruth never seemed to age in our eyes, but time tints our memories. They take life a little easier these days, still going but working less.

Allen Family Christmas Card – Madison South Dakota Family Pictures

We’ve been doing pictures for the Allen family for a very long time. Here’s their Christmas card from last December.

Elly and her brothers – Madison South Dakota Family Pictures

Elly and her three brothers came for a session last Fall. Word has it that their parents LOVED the pictures. While I liked the color version, I think the sepia treatment works well on this image.

Foland Family Christmas card – Madison South Dakota Family Photography

Another fun Christmas card designed by ElizaBeth.

Foland Christmas Card – Madison South Dakota Family Photography

What a fun family! ElizaBeth designed a cool Christmas card for the Foland family. Cards don’t have to be just for Christmas: pick your favorite holiday and we can design a custom greeting for you.

Spier Family Pictures – Madison SD Family Photography

Take yourself back in time not that long ago when the ground was not white and the temperatures were not freezing. We photographed the Spier family on a beautiful Fall afternoon at their place in Madison.
