Olbrich Botanical Gardens Commons Room

The following are a few of the pictures taken of a large family gathering at the Olbrich Botanical Gardens in the Commons Room. 

 Olbrich Family Memorial

I shot several families, including this one. 

There was lots of goofing around.

The following lady wanted a picture with just her and her brothers. 

There were cute couples there too like this one. 

Some pictures were formal. 

Some pictures were more crazyish. 

I told this couple that they seem very comfortable with each other.  She said, “yes, that is because we like each other.”

I love this picture with the barn wood frame and box.

These items were removed from a special blanket and made into a hanging art piece.

Under the card is a copy of a baby book that provides a fasinating story of the early years of the mother whose life was celebrated at this event.


Another generation is born.

About Jim

I love photography, and I've found that Madison is a beautiful city in which to shoot. The Wisconsin Capitol, State Street, Monona Terrace, Olbrich Botanical Gardens, Allen Centennial Gardens, Henry Vilas Park, and the Arboretum are just some of the many beautiful places one can go for gorgeous outdoor pictures.

I am a full-time photographer. I enjoy many kinds of photography, as you can see on this web site. In my storefront studio I offer portrait photography in a setting that allows me to control the light and backgrounds.

I work both in studio and on location to provide creative personal photography and videography for weddings, businesses, and families. James Studio offers a classic look with a creative flair!


  1. I love the picot Sara & Izzy. It’s very sweet:). And the one of John & Dad, it’s very special 😉
