The holiday season in Wisconsin is the perfect time to capture your family’s joy and togetherness through a professional photo session. At babbonis, we specialize in creating stunning family photos that preserve the magic of the holidays. We are passionate about discovering what is special and unique about your family and allowing that to shine through in each portrait. These portraits are cherished keepsakes that you can display all year long, which is most beautiful when the “post-holiday” blues come around! Many of our clients say their portraits are sweet reminders for them every day of the memories they have when the whole family is together. It’s something that can’t be replicated…but we try to in every portrait we take.  

Why “Home for the Holidays”?


“Home for the Holidays” brings so many emotions to our souls… families gathered in the cozy warmth of their homes, laughter around the dinner table, exchanging gifts in coordinating PJs, or special holiday vacations that are sacred traditions. Whether it’s your childhood home, a charming cabin in the woods, or a one-bedroom apartment, the heart of the holiday season is where your family comes together.

It’s all about celebrating your family.


We believe that family is at the core of the holiday season. Family photos capture the essence of your unique bonds, preserving the moments of love and togetherness that make the holidays truly special. No matter if your family is spread out across the country or lives just down the street, there is something remarkable about getting everyone together over the holidays. Being able to document that with a portrait is even better.

Family Traditions. Captured.


All Wisconsin families have their own cherished holiday traditions, from decorating the tree to a white elephant gift exchange or preparing feasts together. Maybe your family chooses to cut down your own tree from the same farm year after year, or perhaps you all go and serve a meal to a family in need. Adding those family portraits to your holiday traditions is another wonderful way to celebrate the season, creating a keepsake that can be passed down through generations, preserving the lineage of your unique family tree. 


Memories. Captured.


The holiday season is fleeting, but memories captured in family photos last a lifetime. These photos become treasured heirlooms, reminding you of the joy and love shared during this special time. We believe it’s an investment in your family!

Quality Family Time.


A family portrait session is a chance for your loved ones to come together, bond, and create beautiful moments. The shared experiences, laughter, and conversations during the session become cherished memories themselves. Many of our customers leave saying how fun their session was, and before long many feel like they’re part of our extended family too!

We encourage your input in creating a photo session that reflects your family’s style and personality. Choose your preferred location on our property, outfits, and themes to make the session a true reflection of your family’s holiday spirit. We have a beautiful park-like setting here at the studio, which has many gorgeous backdrops for an outdoor shoot. If you want beautiful fall foliage or a snowy “up-north” feel, we can accommodate that! Indoors, we have dozens of different options for your session. From traditional to out-of-the-box, we completely curate your experience.

Hassle-free, relaxing, and fun experience.

The holiday season can be busy, but we aim to make the process hassle-free.

We truly care about every one of our customers and strive to make each experience excellent. 

High-Quality Portraits Designed for Your Home.

Many of our families say this is their favorite part of their experience! We love to make sure your portraits are customized for your home, and we even provide digital mock-ups of your space (where you plan to display your portraits) to help you make your selections. With multiple finishes, custom framing, and more, we hold your hand to help you create the perfect display for your home. It’s not unusual to see our ideas on your wall and feel it was meant to be there!

Tips for a Perfect Family Photo Session

To make the most of your family photo session, consider these tips:

Coordinate Outfits

Coordinate colors and styles to enhance the overall look of your family photos. You might want to match your home’s decor if you’re planning on displaying in a prominent location. Or maybe a holiday theme is what you’re going for! Many families choose a neutral pallet that flatters everyone and every room. 

Personalize your session

Include sentimental items or family keepsakes in your portraits. If you have a special family tradition, incorporate that into your photos! And don’t forget your furry family members. They deserve to be included in your holiday session too!

Be Yourselves

The most beautiful family photos are ones where everyone is relaxed. Trust the process and the poses, and allow us to capture the genuine moments of love and connection in your family.

Preserve Your Wisconsin Family’s Legacy

Family photos are more than just pictures; they’re cherished legacies. Your family’s traditions, smiles, and love during the holiday season can be appreciated by future generations. This holiday season, let babbonis help you create a visual time capsule of your family’s “Home for the Holidays” celebrations.
