About Me

I believe you should say yes to beautiful photos and never settle for pictures you don't love! Born and raised in Central Wisconsin, my husband and I enjoy raising our family here, too. I am proud to offer my very best service to my friends and neighbors.

What I do is a little different than a typical portrait photographer. I do take posed shots, typically around 60-100 shots in an hour session, but I also try to capture the best moments and natural expressions during our time together. I will admit I'm not the best at posing people, but my favorite shots are those that don't look posed - those that look like a family or couple enjoying their time together. I really put all my effort into giving my very best work to my clients. I've had many clients tell me it was the nicest experience they have had with a photographer, I hope I can make you feel the same way.

I'm also very pleased to offer my creative eye to the local real estate market! Since early 2013, I have teamed up with Patrick Laemmrich and WhirligigHD to offer affordable and beautiful real estate photography and online marketing. It is truly a great service (not only do the listings get great photos for the MLS, but a beautiful slideshow to post AND we boost your marketing efforts to boot!), I'm also proud to be able to weave together my love of photography, real estate and customer service, what could be better? Please visit our website, www.WhirligigHD.com, to view samples, learn about our services and order your listing today!

Regarding portrait photography:

Next, the basics. These relate to ALL sessions and packages unless stated otherwise within the package description itself:

  • There is no limit on family groupings, poses, and candid shots. I'm very flexible and take lots of photos during our time together. This isn't a normal studio session, I work hard to get some great posed and candid shots.
  • Typically, I like to schedule appointments as close to morning and evening as possible, or at your preferred time if you are unable to schedule at those times.
  • Group photography includes photography of the entire group as well as any groupings or individual portraits desired.
  • A high resolution, copyright free Photo CD of all retouched images is always included. Light retouching included. Heavier editing or prints extra.
  • Online photo album on our facebook page and blog to share with family and friends is included.
These rates given cover outdoor photography for families, children, couples, groups, individuals, maternity, etc.
