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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Trello Checklist - Using trello to organize my personal and business to-do list

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 […]

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, […]

imagine this...

it's just you and your fiance.

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.
