Appleton Wisconsin Family Photographer


family, high school senior, lifestyle, branding & boudoir sessions IN FOX VALLEY, WISCONSIN

Since 2010, I have been photographing families all across the United States - coast to coast, on top of mountains and in the valleys, at the beach and in their homes. It's been one of my greatest joys to be part of some of the most incredible moments, and document the lives of my clients-turned-friends.  I am so thrilled to be a Wisconsin family photographer in the Fox Valley!

All sessions take place outdoors, approximately 90 minutes before sunset. Lifestyle newborn sessions are done in the privacy of client homes or outdoors.

Do you have backup photographers "Just in case"?

For weddings: Yes! I have a trusted list of amazing photographers who would pinch-hit for us just as readily as we would for them. Community over competition, friends! For sessions? I have a flexible schedule that allow us to reschedule if need be.

Frequently Asked Questions


Fun fact: everyone is awkward and weird when trying to be POSED in front of the camera. There is literally nothing LESS CASUAL than the prom pose, right!? No thank you! Instead, I'll give you lots of directions and prompts to get natural, intimate and fun photos of you guys ... let's keep it real, mmk?

Where are you located?

I'm currently based out of the Burlington/Lake Geneva area but we are moving to Appleton in the fall of 2022. I will travel anywhere in Wisconsin, though ... Basically if I can drive there in a day, I'd love to hang out for your session or wedding! Heck, I'll even fly!

Do you give out unedited/raw photos or video footage?

Tell me, would you go out on a fancy date night and ask the chef for a raw slab of prime rib to season and grill to perfection? Nope. I mean, maybe YOU would, but most people wouldn't because the whole point of hiring a professional is to get what THEY have to offer. So simply put: no. My editing and delivery process is part of the experience of working with me.

Are digital files included? Printing rights?

I want you guys to print your images, make albums and give them as gifts. With weddings and sessions, you will receive all of the finished digital images with printing rights and you'll also receive an online gallery where you can download your images, purchase prints and share. I also do ordering sessions!

HOw many pictures can we expect?

For a typical session, roughly 50-75 images per hour of coverage. I don't limit or cap the number of photos you'll receive, because each session and wedding is entirely unique. More details, more people, more time? More photos. Simple as that!

Do you reschedule if weather is bad?

Generally speaking - yes. Cold kids = grumpy kids and honestly ... grumpy adults, too. If it's raining, we'll reschedule if it's at all possible. I will always be in constant contact with you to decide if we need to reschedule (and no, before you ask - there's no rescheduling fees for things outside of our control like weather).

Will you photoshop me?

Okay first of all, knock it off. No. You don't NEED photoshopped! I am a firm believer in authenticity and as a professional photographer, knowing how to guide people into flattering poses in any kind of lighting situation. That said, if you wake up and OMG have a huge pimple on your forehead - I got you, Boo. But no, I can't make you look 10 years younger, I won't nip and tuck, and I refuse to make you look like a crazy Snapchat filter. You're beautiful the way you are! 

send it!

And if you have preferred pronouns, please let me know!

Thank You!

If you don't hear back from me within 24 hours, please be sure to check your spam/junk email!

I am so sad that summer is basically over. I’ll be the first to say that fall is the best season in the world, but that doesn’t mean I’m not sad that summer is ending. I love summers in Wisconsin, because it’s the best time for family sessions! Kids aren’t cold (and neither am I!), […]
