I’m so excited to share this Wausau, Wisconsin extended family session with you today! The Bougus Family recently reached out to me about some family photos, and the shoot ended up being perfect. There’s something so special about extended family sessions, especially for the Bougus family.
One of my favorite things about being a extended family photographer in Wausau, WI is the opportunity to be a part of special memories and milestones. It is truly an honor to be there for them. When the Bougus contacted me about their family session, I was so excited to help!
The Bougus flew in from South Carolina during Memorial Day weekend to spend time with family here in Wausau, Wisconsin. I loved that they wanted to take time out their visit for a photoshoot with their loved ones.
It turned out that the photo session wasn’t just to commemorate their visit. They also came to celebrate a very special little girl—their daughter. It was her first birthday, and it was such a treat to capture the sweet girl spending time with her grandparents, aunt, and uncle.
As a Wausau extended family photographer, I’m no stranger to the unpredictable weather we have in Wisconsin. However, my time in the industry has taught me a lot about working around these challenges. The Bougus family session was a great opportunity to test out my adaptability.
This photo shoot, in particular, brought out additional challenges. Unlike other family photography sessions, we were restricted to a narrow window of time. The Bougus were only in Wisconsin for a short visit, so we knew we had to make something work!
Fortunately, we were able to dodge the many rainstorms. We ended up having the perfect weather! It was cool with plenty of sunshine, and it ended up being a gorgeous summer day.
When most people think of family photography in Wausau, they picture parents with young kids. I loved that this extended family session included a mom, dad, and their three adult children. Carrie was one of the adult children with her husband Matt and their one-year-old daughter.
It was great to get photos of the adult children with their parents as well as some pictures of Grandma and Grandpa enjoying time with their granddaughter. Of course, we couldn’t leave out Aunt and Uncle! We made sure to take some fun shots of them celebrating with their adorable niece.
Though it can be a struggle to capture the attention and smiles of little ones, some bubbles made all the difference. Not only did we get plenty of cute smiles from the baby, but we got many laughs from the adults, too.
It was such a beautiful evening out at Sunnyvale Park in Wausau. I made sure to take advantage of the lush greenery that all the rain gave us. We were able to capture some family groupings near the water as well.
