Hygge Family Portraits

Cozy family portraits for the Eggers

I love the Eggers family’s portraits! Have you heard of the Hygge craze? It’s a Danish lifestyle that emphasizes coziness. Examples of Hygge are warm slippers, cups of hot chocolate, reading by a fireplace, and snuggles. All of these things describe life in Wisconsin, and the Eggers family captured the look with their session for 6 month old Danny Junior.

Location is key

We knew that Retzer Nature Center would be a perfect setting for their flannel and sweaters. The Eggers have been so fun to work with for one of our Grow With Me packages. We did their Maternity & Newborn photos, you might have seen Danny with the baseball and little hat? So precious! I think this is the perfect way to showcase how much their family has changed in such a short time. It was so fun to watch them enjoy all of the images put together. Are you interested in scheduling a family session? Schedule a consultation with me and we’ll talk all things photo & Hygge!

This is one of my favorite, signature spots. I love how tall the trees are and I find the kiddos enjoy playing the all the pinecones on the ground!

This shot takes my breath away. It really captures a moment in their lives. Don’t get me wrong, I love posed shots but sometimes the candids take the cake.

Danny is everything little boys should be: smiley, sweet, full of giggles, and curious!

Every baby loves to be tickled! Especially ones wearing cute little stocking caps. I love the outfits they chose because they fit all seasons. Also, they match without being too “matchy.” If you ever have questions about outfits we’re happy to chime in prior to your shoot. Don’t they look cozy?

We love the look of the Golden Hour sun shining behind them in this image. Junior is not so sure about it, or maybe Kara was making silly faces from behind the camera?

How cute are these matching shirts? Fun fact about this family, they run Eggers Imprints in Milwaukee and often make shirts for their vacations and adventures!
