Amanda & Logan

Amanda and Logan met in college. She was his personal trainer while studying kinesiology. Now he’s a personal trainer and she’s a holistic nutritionist. They’ve not only built their relationship, but have grown and thrived through college, living almost two hours apart for a few years, buying a house together, and a business startup. I think they’re going to be just fine as life partners. I’m excited to capture even more beautiful moments with these two next year during their…

Phil :: Class of 2018

Phil :: Class of 2018 Phil wanted an urban setting for his high school senior photos so we decided on the National Warehouse Corp. on Water St. in Milwaukee—one of my favorite places for portrait sessions. I met Phil about five years ago when his mom, Michelle, hired me for their multi-generational family photos—there were 50 people! I hadn’t seen Phil since then; kids change quite a bit in a five years. I couldn’t believe my eyes when he got…

Karlee: High School Senior Portraits

Senior portraits are a rite of passage—they’re a huge deal. They document that time in your life when you’re still dependent on your parents, but oh so ready to step out on your own. These pictures are sent to everyone you and your parents know, and they will hang on your parent’s wall for years, maybe even decades. My senior pictures are still hanging up at my parent’s—granted they’ve been rotated to their bedroom walls, but they’re still hanging nonetheless.…

We can work harder to be kind to one another. You never know what a person going through at any given moment. We are all winging it through this one life and we are all doing the best we can. Giving space and showing grace.

Giving Space and Showing Grace

I was interviewed last week by my friend Chrysta Baire for an article she wrote in celebration of International Women’s Day on her blog Live Love Work. There was one question she asked that got me thinking, “How can women better support each other?” I feel it all comes down to understanding that life isn’t a competition as to who’s busier, who’s accomplishing more, who’s doing more for her family, or who’s running to the most sporting events with her children.…

Choosing the Right Photographer

Choosing the Right Photographer There are photographers EVERYWHERE these days. You probably know two or three people in your circle of friends who are photographers. So how do you select the one that’s right for you and your family? And better yet, why does it even matter? Each photographer has her own unique style. You can place 20 photographers in front of one subject and get 20 different results. Each photographer is framing and composing her photograph based on the information…

The Importance of Being on Both Sides of the Camera, The Importance of a photograph, why I should be in photographs, exist in photographs

The Importance of Being on Both Sides of the Camera

The Importance of Being on Both Sides of the Camera My love for photography started more than 30 years ago with a little Canon point-and-shoot. My photo skills have come along way since then, but one thing has remained the same, my love for photographing people. I believe we are all living our life story, everyone’s story is important, and every story should be told. Photography is a way to do this, from both sides of the camera. When I was about 12…

It isn’t the Camera, it’s the Photographer

There are four important components that when combined, create an amazing portrait session: Trust. You have to trust that I know what I’m doing as far as directing you and your family throughout your session. A relaxed environment. The more relaxed I am, the more relaxed you and your loved ones will be, allowing each of you the space to be your goofy selves. A photographer who is knowledgable about photography and how to use her camera. I wrote a blog post a few weeks…

A 1948 Panhead and a Guy with a Grizzly Beard

I met Josh in 2006. Shortly after I started working at Harley-Davidson, my cube-mate was transferred to a new project and Josh moved in—we were roomies for the next three years. Josh was 23 years old back then. Fresh out of college with an engineering degree. He was a little arrogant. He thought he knew everything he needed to know about the corporate world and life (and I say this tongue-in-cheek). He would ask me questions, I would answer, and…

Multi-Generational Family Portraits at the Barn

I strive to give all of you an amazing experience while having your portraits taken. And from my perspective it seems that I’m doing a good job of it when everyone is laughing, having a good time, and I get hugs from your kids. However, it sure is reassuring and helpful to get feedback straight from you. I received this message a few weeks ago, and with Sarah’s permission am posting it here. This means the world to me…. Thank you…
