Newborn lifestyle sessions are seriously the BEST. It is such a joy to see parents loving on their sweet little addition to their family, and I especially love seeing the older kiddos adoring their newest sibling! Kate and Phil welcomed their fourth baby, George Magnus, into the world at the end of July, and he […]

George Magnus | Newborn Lifestyle Session

I seriously feel so blessed to have the opportunity to serve couples on their wedding day. Not only do I get to document their love for each other, but I get to receive encouraging reminders for my own marriage as I witness each couple make their vows to each other and receive the grace of […]

Lindsey and Alex | A Sky Grey Wedding at St. Paul University Catholic Center

I love the story of how the Holy Spirit brought together Denise and Geoffrey. Denise’s father shared during his toast that at a time when Denise needed to decide if she would be following her boss and work group to Madison, he (her dad) happened to be driving through Madison for work. He calls himself […]

Denise and Geoffrey | A Dusty Blue and Coral Wedding at St. Paul Catholic Church

I have been SO excited for this session. Not only are TJ and Sandie great friends of ours, but they are also some of my favorite people to photograph. =) They have trusted me with their photos all the way back to the first days of my business, and it has been such a joy […]

Summer Family Session at Indian Lake Park

What a joy it was to finally get to spend an evening with Denise and Geoffrey! We started talking about scheduling their engagement session back in February. The plan was to have a spring session, but just as we were getting dates lined up, a stay-at-home order was put in place. By the time the […]

Denise and Geoffrey | A Summer Engagement Session at Owen Conservation Park

We knew an engagement announcement was coming. Our brother, Jeff, had a custom ring being designed for Katy, so we knew the proposal would be happening soon. However, instead of a typical engagement announcement, we found out that Jeff and Katy were planning to get MARRIED in just over a month!

Katy and Jeff | An Intimate 4th of July Backyard Wedding

It was the perfect day. Gorgeous sunshine, not too hot, and not a rain cloud in sight. June 6th had been Glennie and Alex’s wedding day from the beginning of their planning, and after lots of more recent unknowns surrounding the current pandemic and considering postponing the wedding, they decided that they were ready to […]

Glennie and Alex | An Intimate Dark Green and Blush Summer Wedding At St. Francis Xavier

Meredith was still pregnant when she reached out to me about a family session. Her family was going to be in town for Thanksgiving, so it would mean a lot to them to get some nice family photos while everyone was together. I was blown away when I realized that by the time we would […]

In-Home Extended Family Session

These two both graduated from UW Madison, but that’s not where they met. In fact, they didn’t even meet here in the United States… Back in 2016, Glennie and Alex both went on a medical mission trip to El Salvador. Glennie was getting ready to move to New York after the trip, so when Alex asked her out, she turned him down. But God knew what He was doing, and meant for them to be led back to each other…

Glennie and Alex | Fall Engagement Session at Vilas Neighborhood and Henry Vilas Park

It might have been super cold during their session (I guess that’s what we get in November here in Wisconsin!) but these kiddos were all such champs! The promise of hot chocolate after the session might have helped too. 😉
