Sooo apparently when you schedule a session and you're already married making this a "anniversary session" I have you kiss..a lot! Like most of the photos from Bri and Brian's session they're kissing. Hence, why I'm calling this a #loveinthewoods photo shoot.Read More
Take a look at this Green Bay WI family!!! Reid was definitely not into family photos, but I .. a mother of three children had a few tricks to get this little guy to smile an fun for his family session.Read More
In October I met Courtney and Derrick at the Black Wolf Run Golf Course in Kohler WI for their maternity session. After walking around a few minutes I asked if they had a name for their baby yet. They're keep the name a secret, but since we just meet and we all decided it was probably safe to say the name.. they said.. "Well since we don't have any common friends, who would you tell !?!".. so I now know baby's name :) About 2 minutes later we realized that we actually have a lot of mutual friends! #smalltownproblems :)Read More
Emily and Nate scheduled their engagement session for the best week in Wisconsin to photograph the fall colors!! Even Mocha enjoyed a few photos and kissing mom! Nate recently proposed at a Door County WI winery...which just happens to be my FAVORITE winery! Lautenbaugh Orchard Country Winery..pshh! The Raspberry wine is AMAZING!! Excited for this 2016 Green Bay Wedding!Read More
I recently met Becky and Billy at her parents house for their engagement session. After chatting with her father a little bit, he told me that was the house he and his wife bought the day after they married and have lived there for 32+ years!! We chatted while watching the deer .. about 8.. walk in the fields across the street (pictures in post). That's why it was so important for Becky to have her engagements photos taken at home. We walked back in Dad's field to check out his newly built deer stand, then walked around the street to watch the deer and picked apples. Billy also picked Becky on the swing she used as a child and finally ended the session with a few pics in front of Dad's newly painted shed door :) I love capturing little moments like this! Can't wait for their Two Rivers WI July wedding!Read More
Yesterday my little friend Nicoló turned ONE!! So today he will celebrate his birthday surrounded by family and friends. I photographed this little guy in his backyard playing with balloons! Then we ended our date with pizza and pasta made at the family restaurant in Manitowoc WI called Luigi's where my kids and I received a little tour of the kitchen!Read More
I met Paige and Kevin over Labor Day weekend when they came to my little town to preform with their band Boogie and the Yo-yo'z at the annual Kites over the Lake festival! I felt like a little girl going to her first concert that day!! FULL of excitement for the coolest client meeting ever!!
Fast forward to their Wisconsin fall engagement session, during prime fall colors week!! Seriously.. these colors should last more then two weeks! Paige said she wanted a rustic setting, so I contact the owner of this cool barn and wooded backyard.Read More
Recently I met Nick & Amanda for their engagement session, along came Cassidy and Gloria. These beautiful girls definitely enjoyed their time in front the camera! Gloria was probably the happiest child I have ever photographed. It was a very windy day, which created a few beautiful images with their long hair! Can't wait for Nick and Amanda's April 2016 Fox Hills wedding!...Let's all hope the snow has melted by then! Enjoy these Wisconsin family photos.Read More
How often does a girl get to twirl in her pink and glittery prom dress while standing in waterfall ?! Not often! When Caitlyn came to her Green Bay WI Senior Session I wasn't sure what type of prom dress photos she was expecting. After a few mins I finally asked " Sooo does this dress have to stay clean...ooooorrr are we going to play in the water?" Caitlyn was all for getting the dress dirty! ...and that's what we did!!Read More
Last night I took a little ride to meet Lainee, her dad and mommy! She is the sweetest little thing! She pulled at my auntie heart strings when she walked over to me, asked me to pick her up and later kissed me on my face !!
I LOVE a good challenge!! Chase.. was that! None of my photographer or mommy tricks worked! Plus it was cold, windy and he was a little sick. The only thing that made Chase happy was calling his cousin Emma to come to our rescue! In the end we still had fun and Swanson have lots of cute family photos. Happy 3rd Birthday Chase!!!
Yesterday I met Lauren and Joe... Lauren totally made my fashionista heart happy when she wore one of my dresses! Those of you reading this and not clients of mine should know.. I... 1. ALWAYS bring or offer some article of clothing or accessory of my own for almost every session...2. You will probably hear me say " Okay I think we're done, no wait let's try this!! " a THOUSAND times each session...and I did both last night! I'm so happy to be apart of their wedding day and can't for Oct 3rd.
This weekend I met Owen and Nadia.. two of the nicest! well behaved! respectful! children I have ever met! They kept my three children busy ending spring break with a sleepover! Nadia wanted to play dress up and felt like a princess so we went outside for a few photos.
This weekend I started my 2015 family session season with the Kozlowski family!
Last week I traveled to Panama City Beach Florida to take part in a Julie Paisley Photography click n chat and enjoy some sun/beach with my sisters for our first girl getaway. I tried a lot of new things and learned a lot about myself expanding my horizons. Here's my favorites from the click n chat! Next month I travel to Nashville to meet Julie Paisley but this time to learn about shooting film and becoming a hybrid shooter. I love being able to travel and meet all these wondering people.
Erin & David for modeling for us and allowing the group to your family home for this session.
Julie Paisley Photography for being wonderful and making this experience so fun!
Thank you Panache Tent and Event for the GORGEOUS Bouquet.
Tuxedo Source was also very happy to provide David's Tuxedo for the photo shoot.
In March I traveled to St. Louis for a wedding photography retreat host by Ashley & Catherine. We put in some LONG hours starting our days by 9am and sometimes not stopping until 11:30pm. Although their style of photography is different from mine, I decided to attend in hopes of picking up some tips on off camera flash, reception lighting, sparkler exit/writing and things on the paperwork side of owning a business. We didn't get to learn hands on the sparkler portions, but I did leave with a 250 page book for reference... Here's just a few of my favorites. The best part of this workshop was the rain + off camera flash photos. SOOO fun! Even if we were freezing outside!

Last week I was asked to announce to the world that Megan & Tom are having a ....
Welcome baby Carter to the world...
PHOTO OVERLOAD!!! This is what happens when photographers are stuck inside for 5 months, because of freezing temps! AND we had sun!!! Sara is my hair stylist.. She gets me and my OCD over the perfect hair color. We had such a great time last night and you can clearly see the love and happiness that they share! Super excited for Sara and Danny's June beach wedding!
