I got to take Laura and Andrew’s family photos last summer, and we had so much fun capturing their love for one another!  I was so excited and grateful to have the chance to photograph their perfect new addition to the family: Rosemary Susan. This little girl is so sweet and SO adorable!  Congratulations, Laura […]

Rosemary Susan | Newborn Mini Session

What an incredible family!  Jess and James are so inspiring to me.  They have the most beautiful faith, they are rockstars of parents, and they are raising some incredible kids.  Seriously, every time I get to be around this family, all of the kids are so genuinely kind, joyful, and full of love and laughter! […]

Families

Fall Family Session at Nakoma Park

I LOVE when I get to photograph families again and again.  It is such a joy to me to witness and document families as they grow through the months and years!  Tom and Megan invited me to photograph their beautiful family after sweet Therese was born earlier this year (check out that session here!), and […]

Fall Family Session on Private Property

As a Catholic wedding photographer, I feel totally at home when photographing the Mass because it’s what I know and love.  But even though I know what to expect throughout the ceremony, every once in a while I get to be surprised by the beautiful personal touches planned for the ceremony.  I got to experience […]

Shannon and Keith | A Navy and Blush Fall Wedding at St. Francis Xavier Church and the Park Hotel

Mid-70s, a pleasant breeze, and a bright blue sky full of sunshine.  We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect summer day for Jessica and Abe’s wedding!  Everything about their day was incredibly beautiful.  The old country church situated at the top of a hill.  The delicate lace of Jessica’s amazing cathedral-length veil.  The bridesmaid and […]

Jessica and Abe | An Elegant Blush and Hibiscus Summer Wedding in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin

February 14th.  Such a romantic day for so many people… but for Jessica and Abe, it’s more than just Valentine’s Day.  It also happens to be the day they met.  (At a wedding.  Where she was a guest.  And he was a wedding crasher!)  Because it carries that extra significance to them, it also became […]

Jessica and Abe | A Summer Engagement Session at the Riverwalk and Dorothy Carnes Park

They were sitting in their physics class at the beginning of the semester.  The instructor was splitting the class into groups by calling out his interests and hobbies, and the students were supposed to raise their hand if he called one they too enjoyed.  They were very specific, and slightly obscure interests and hobbies… so […]

Lindsey and Alex | A Summer Engagement Session at Picnic Point and the Union Terrace

They met at St. Paul’s.  He was a retreat coordinator, and she was a retreat volunteer.  They began dating, but not long after, Sam moved back home to the Twin Cities.  He told his mom that they would either break up, or he would move back to Madison and they would soon be engaged.  Well, […]

Ana and Sam | A Beautiful Red and White Wedding at St. Paul’s in Madison, Wisconsin

Look at these two.  Aren’t they the sweetest??  Shannon and Keith met in high school.  Shannon’s first memory of Keith is from freshman year: she was getting onto a bus for soccer practice.  Her friend had to run back into the school for something, so Shannon was carrying her own backpack, her soccer bag, her […]

Shannon and Keith | A Summer Engagement Session at Pope Farms Conservancy

I love photographing these two so much!!  I got to photograph Sandie & TJ’s engagement session last summer, almost exactly one year ago!  (You can see that post here!)  We had just as much fun this time around, except this time we got to celebrate their family of THREE as they anticipate the arrival of […]
