Olivia | Eau Claire, WI

Olivia is the niece of a dear friend of mine, and I was absolutely thrilled to photograph her. She has the most brilliant baby blues, and we had a great time playing with the twinkle lights. I love adding a bit of whimsy to my photographs with fun accessories like lights. They add just enough sparkle and not to mention, they're perfect for the holidays!

Product Photography | Eau Claire, WI

We had another opportunity to use our photography skills in a commercial arena. We were contacted to photograph a household sink. The process was different in that you didn't have to wait for the subject to smile, but the key elements like good lighting and highlighting the elements you want to be in focused played a large role in this photoshoot. The images were used for advertising and product packaging. Love the unique opportunities in my community!

Kylee + Lane Married | Milwaukee, WI

I went to high school with the bride, Kylee, and when she asked me to photograph the biggest day of her life, let's just say, I was very humbled. This was my first time photographing a wedding in Milwaukee, and the various backdrops we discovered couldn't have been more breathtaking. I absolutely loved this city. It's easy to see this community's love for the arts. Congratulations to this very happy couple! We all had a wonderful time!

Paige's Newborn Session | Eau Claire, WI

Welcome to the world, Paige! When my friend's sister asked me to capture her family's newest addition, I was very honored. This sweet pea was a breeze to shoot, and her family's love for her was so evident. Congrats, Larson family!

Wittig Engagement | Eau Claire, WI

It was so fun to have another session with Ashley and Mike! When I first photographed these two, we had a family session. With engagement pictures, it was nice to be able to put the focus of these photographs on the love in their relationship. The soft light made for lovely afternoon exploring through the backwoods of Wisconsin!

Henck Engagement | Eau Claire, WI

I truly enjoy photographing and documenting special moments, especially when family and friends are involved! The bride-to-be, Betsy, has been my friend since we were both princesses/ neighboring town ambassadors during our high school days. Our friendship grew even more as we both attended the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire for college. Years later, I was so excited when Betsy asked me about photographing her wedding day! Unfortunately, I was already booked! To be able to share this special shoot with them was like getting to see a piece of the love they would spend on their big day! Congratulations to Betsy and Jeremy, wishing you both many years of love and laughter ahead!

Aubrie Turns 1 | Eau Claire, WI

I had the pleasure of photographing this tiny beauty when she was just born. So to see her again at one - it's just incredible to capture how much she's grown. Smash cake photos are always fun at this age and incorporating more elements of pink - well, that's just icing on the cake. Happy Birthday, Aubrie!

Winter Engagement | Eau Claire, WI

We had a lovely afternoon exploring Eau Claire for these engagement pictures. Our excursion ranged from photographing at an urban industrial location to one of my favorite parks. These two were so photogenic and fun, I truly can't wait for their big day!
