Things I’ve learned as a family and wedding photographer… 1. No one is happy in the morning, unless it’s the bride. 2. Sometimes kids need to be bribed with candy for smiles. When we scheduled Cecilia’s two year pics for a Saturday at 10am she was not about the camera or model life. So after trying every trick Jesse, Nico, Alivia, Liam and I could think of we stopped the session for a little snack break and tried again. That was exactly what she needed. She was full of the smiles and sass!
Some bunny is turning TWO!!Read More
At the beginning of April I photographed the Reilly family while Dick and Vicky’s children and grandchildren were home for Spring break. I’ve recently had a lot of inquiries for extended family sessions and it makes my heart happy. These type of sessions are so special because I get to document generations of family. I will tell you Grandma’s LOVE having beautiful photos taken with their children and grandchildren.
I was reminded this week at how important it is to schedule a session like this as one my grandmother’s passed away and I don’t have any photos of her with my children.
SOOOO…if you’re looking for the perfect gift for Mother’s Day, get a gift card for an extended family session.Read More

After months of planning a Summer …. then Fall which turned into a Winter engagement session we finally found a date that worked and weather that somewhat cooperated ( it was freezing cold BUT no rain). When planning a Winter engagement session you either need snow on the ground to cover all the dead grass or something big in the background and bold colors in the outfit selection. The Cedarburg Covered Bridge and Danya’s red dress = PERFECTION!!Read More
I have to say I’m SOOOO happy that I met Cory and Marcus PLUS I got to help them celebrate the most important day of their lives. Everyone was happy and dancing, even up and down the wedding aisle. The first look was so sweet Marcus cried, Cory cried… even April and I cried. This is the first wedding that the Bride and Groom played rock-paper-scissors to decided who would read their vows first. Of course, Cory won! Plus Cory and Marcus end their ceremony with a shot of Jameson with their officiant. The reception started with a surprise from Cory’s grandfather, he created a slideshow of photos of Cory and her father. That slideshow played while Cory danced with her mother. The reception felt like a dance club, the DJ did a great a job! OHHH… I forgot to mention the cake cutting which was actually a cake smash. ;)Read More
If you know me, you know that I hate Winter and dread any outdoor sessions after Nov 1st every year. Probably the reason I built a nice indoor studio :) BUT every now and then there’s a day when the temps is above 40 degrees so I sneak outside. Like this family session at High Cliff State Park. Austin jumped out of the vehicle, grabbed his mom and dad’s hands and says to me “ CHEEESSEEEE I’m ready for my picture! “. He made the session so fun and even helped me take couple photos of mom and dad!Read More
