Mayville, WI Farm Family Session

Sunday afternoon, I met Lisa, Tim and their lovely family out on a 190-acre Farm in Mayville, WI that’s been a part of Tim’s family for generations. We had a great time walking the land while taking photos along the way.

Tim shared the heritage of the farm as well as, how it came to expand and change over the years. Notably, during a Highway 33 re-routing project, the farm’s main house was demolished and rebuilt in a new location to make way for the where HWY 33 is presently. Today, across the highway from the farm, a telephone pole and a smokehouse stand as a reminder of where the family home once was. The smokehouse is used to this day to smoke delicious delicacies.

While Tim was growing up, his father had bountiful, pristine rows of hay, corn and oats. The farm was also a home to 100+ cows. Though Tim’s parents still own and live on the farm they have scaled back some. The cattle were sold a couple years ago and much of the land is now rented to area farmers as they expand their crop. The buildings and pole barns are packed with campers and other items to be stored for winter.

As you can tell the Ravanelli Farm means something to a lot of people and is a big part of this family’s legacy.

Once a month, Lisa, Tim and the boys come out to the farm. They walk the land and enjoy some quality family time together. The farms’s atmosphere is so calming. It is the perfect place to get away from it all. Growing up, I loved the fast pace of life and thought that I always wanted a packed schedule. Now that I’ve gotten a bit older, I can truly appreciate the invaluable opportunities to slow down. This was one of them.

Aren’t these sneak peeks just perfection?!

Charles Langer Family Park Fall Family Session

Brittany and Zach won the lottery, figuratively with the sweet family they’ve built and literally! Zach lucked out and was selected to purchase tickets to the Green Bay Packers’ Game in London. How cool is that?!

Brittany and Zach made a week out of it across the pond with another couple. They flew out of Chicago and the majority of the plane was filled with domestic Packers’ fans, headed for the game. Zach said that in addition to the fans from the states there were also many European Packers fans in attendance. Who knew?! I loved hearing little snippets of their trip during our session.

Hudson and Braden did so well. They had tons of fun running around, climbing on boulders and taking photos with mom and dad. Towards the end of the session, Braden and Hudson were flashing the biggest smiles and enthusiastically shouting, “Cheese!”. I wish I had a little video clip to show, it was certainly a success.

Brittany and Zach,

As always, thanks for getting together with me for your annual fall photos. It amazes me every year how our time together goes so fast. We will have to get together sometime, catch up more and let the kiddos tire themselves out!
