I’ve been friends with Kaitlyn Finke basically my whole life and it’s always a joy to capture their sweet family. I love their kids so much, but they definitely loved the water more last night . I wish it wasn’t a mini session because I could have snapped away at all the fun they were […]

The Finke Family | Summer Creek Mini Session

Well little miss Lucy stole the show during this session. She was an absolute doll the entire time and kept giving me the sweetest smiles. I may have had to make a lot of silly faces, but she would eventually cave in and give me a big grin. It was a special session because Melissa […]

The Overfelt Family | Summer Mini Creek Session

When we visited some of our best friend’s in Green Bay a few weeks ago, my friend, Molly, asked if I could take some pictures of her and her one year old son, Liam. So I of course brought along my camera and got to do a very mini session in their backyard and his […]

Lifestyle One Year Old Mommy and Me Session | Gretchen Day Photography

The Porter Family are some of our best friends. They graciously accepted to be a model family so I could get some pictures to advertise for some Creek Mini Sessions I’m doing this summer. I still have a couple spots left on August 21st BTW. We had a TON of rain for a few days […]

Mastodon State Historic Site Creek Family Mini Session | Gretchen Day Photography

This park. This weather. This family. Y’all, I couldn’t have asked for a smoother extended family session. The Huch Family made my job a breeze. And baby Cora. Oh my GOODNESS! She stole the show that night. She was an absolute sweetie pie and I couldn’t stop snapping pictures of her cute smile.I will definitely […]

The Huch Family | Extended Family Session

This family got together on Memorial Day weekend to celebrate the 61st anniversary of their grandparents and the birth of their newest great grandchild. We had a lovely evening in the front yard of their home. Grandma Katie had the most beautiful garden filled with a variety of amazing plants and flowers. What a fun […]

The Rezykrantz Family | Extended Family Session

I’ve been loving extended family sessions lately. There is something so joyful about seeing entire families together after a long year of not being able to. I was able to capture these pictures for Josh’s aunt, uncle, cousins and their families on Sunday. We had the most beautiful spring evening at the gorgeous Wapelhorst Park. […]

The Day Family | Extended Family Session

I had the privilege and honor to capture the adoption of these sweet brothers to The Schwarz Family. These aren’t your typical adoption pictures because they weren’t done in a courtroom, they were done in their home over a zoom call. It was kind of perfect – becoming a family in their new home. I […]

The Schwarz Family – An Adoption Story

I’m convinced I get the BEST families as my clients. Below you will see some of my favorite images from each family that booked a Mini Session this fall. After a crazy year of 2020, it was refreshing to end it with some normalcy, Fall Minis. Thankful I have a zoom lens that allowed me […]

A Look Back at 2020 Fall Minis

One of my favorite parts about newborn sessions is that they don’t have to take place in the magic 4-14 days after birth. They can occur even when baby is 2-4 months old and beyond. A lifestyle session simply captures your family in the current season you find yourselves. My goal is to document a […]
