I can feel summer around the corner – the buzz, summer plans falling into place, and session plans underway! And speaking of sessions . . . I’ve been dreaming about this summer lifestyle session (and not-so-patiently waiting for strawberry season) and it feels like the right time to blog about this beauty of a family […]
After a stretch of gloomy, rainy days here in Central Wisconsin – I’m over here reminiscing about this spring motherhood lifestyle session last season. It was bright, floral-filled, and glowing with sunshine. Ahhhh – can you almost smell those lilacs from your seat? Samantha and her little Auggie ended the session meandering through a meadow […]
Maggie, of Viola Hill, is a talented graphic designer based out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I met Maggie at the last Milwaukee Pop-Up Session in July. She has since worked hard to build her business and has expansive plans for the future. Maggie’s session was built around her future business and the growth to come. Prior to the […]
The purpose of all brand photography sessions is universal: to bring the heart and mission behind each brand to life through imagery. Hannah, of Focal Point Bookkeeping, wanted to bring forth a sense of approachability. She knows how intimidated people feel at the mention of numbers, taxes, and accounting (myself included)- and it’s her mission […]
Again, brushing the dust off the blog to feature one of the most beautiful weddings of my 2020 season! And while I could go on and on about how incredible their day was, I’ll be dishing up the expedited version for you all (thanks to a new little 2-week-old addition we welcomed into our family […]
5 brands. 1 gorgeous location. 5 different galleries with 5 different ‘feels’. As a brand photographer, it’s always a welcomed challenge to listen in to the heart behind each brand/business I serve and create imagery to reflect just that. This July, I ventured to this light-filled Milwaukee Airbnb to meet 5 businesses and capture the […]
Know that person with 1,231 tabs open at all times? That’s me. I mean that both literally and figuratively. And keeping it all straight? I’ve tried it all. From sticky notes, to paper lists, phone checklists, a physical planner – and a combination of the above. You name it – I’ve tried it. All in […]
Dreamy. A word I openly overuse when describing wedding days – but I’m over here struggling to find any word that can describe Val + Tanner’s day except DREAMY. Truly – the venue (The Enchanted Barn is forever one of my favorite venues – I married there myself!), the couple, the details were all incredible. But […]
Lauryn of Miss Lauryn Marie is an incredibly talented makeup artist/licensed cosmetologist serving clients throughout Wisconsin. She is passionate about building her wedding-based services – a niche she is most excited about! Lauryn and I crafted a session to highlight the elements of her business and personality that are most important to her. She believes […]
We did it. We successfully navigated our first ‘real’ vacation as a family of three – toddler in tow. I’m talking packing 38 airplane snacks, trips to the beach, pre-lunch ice cream runs, bags of crumbled seashell treasures – the real deal. It took a lot more planning, a little more navigating around nap times, but the […]
This one’s for the bride-to-be(s) out there. But not all brides. This one is for the brides who are searching for their dream wedding venue – one that’s flooded with natural light, has an intimate feel to it, and feels unique in one way or another. I rounded up a list of Midwest (focusing on Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota […]
A change of scenery can be so good for the soul. So when Val messaged me about shooting their engagement at Devil’s Lake State Park I signed right on up. This session was filled with all of the things that makes my photographer heart happy – rocky rugged overlooks, tall pines, a shoreline or two, […]
You're nestled up by a fire at your family cabin, lakeside, with only the stars to accompany your sweet conversation over hot cocoa and Blue Moon.
Family, friends, and twinkle lights. Windblown hair. Hiking boots for adventurous photography. Cozy moments for just the two of you.
A dirty hem from dancing and making memories...
and smiles you just can't wipe off your faces.
