Emily + Spencer ~ At Home ~ Madison Lifestyle Engagement Photography

There’s something I love so much about this ‘at home’ lifestyle engagement session!! Maybe it was the rainy Madison day outside. Maybe it was Emily and Spencer’s sweet pup, Kenzie. Maybe it was how comfortable and cozy their home is. Maybe it was how natural these two are together. Or maybe it was a combination of all of the above.

Either way – I just love this at home lifestyle engagement session! It is different than what I normally shoot for engagements, so it was a bit of a challenge for me in that I had to think outside the box and work more cohesively with my surroundings… and I loved it! It forced me to be creative in a new way, and it was such a refreshing change. That, and I can’t get enough of any session that includes a dog!! Kenzie was so adorable the entire time – always watching Emily & Spencer – especially if they were kissing. haha. So cute!

Anyway – I thought this cozy fall session was the perfect way to end this short week before we all head out to spend cozy at home time with our families for Thanksgiving! 🙂


Ahh! I love dogs!!! 🙂

Gorgeous, gorgeous Emily!


Love!!!  I hope you all have a fabulous Thanksgiving, soak in all the love, and enjoy this beautiful holiday with family and friends! We’re heading up to Wisconsin for our annual weekend full of festivities! I’m SO EXCITED! 🙂 See you Monday!  xoxo!
