It brings me so much joy to share this Burke Park Extended Family Session with you today! This was a special session for me and I am so grateful I was chosen to capture these photos. I have known the Ballweg Family (now the Ballweg-Welch-Pierce Family) since I was in elementary school. Tori and I are the same age and were in a ton of the same classes growing up, all the way through high school. We hung out a ton, especially in middle school. I have very fond memories of hanging out in the Ballweg’s backyard after school, playing with the dogs or hanging out in their basement playing with the most impressive electric car race track! Tori’s sister Jamie is my brothers age. Growing up we all also played soccer together. Susan, Tori and Jamie’s mom, coached our team!
Thinking back to the good old days it’s crazy how far we have all come and how much things have changed. Tori and Jamie are both married; Tori to Brian whom she met at the Madison airport when he used to fuel her airplane (yeah, how sweet is that) and Jamie to Kyle whom she met in school (they’re high-school sweethearts you guys!!!). Kyle and Jamie are parents to the three sweetest little girls who did so well during our session!
We had perfect weather, sun and 70’s with some clouds, which is almost unheard of this time of year, for our area anyway, but I’ll take what I can get. We met at Burke Park which is a photographers dream! I have no idea how I had never been there before. There are so many fun areas to shoot photos and gorgeous landscape with an accessible island. Just look at all of these amazing sneak peeks!!
Susan, Tori, Jamie, Brian, Kyle and The Girls,
Thank you so much for choosing me to capture this session for you. I had such a great time with you, it was so nice to get together and catch up during our session. I cannot wait for you to see the rest of these images!
