Hello! I’m so glad that you are here! The quick story is that I’m a photographer, a wife, a mom of two boys, and a dog mom.
The long story is that I officially started my business in 2007, but it had been a dream of mine for a long time to be a photographer. Wedding photography specifically turned into an obsession when my husband and I were planning our wedding way back in 2004/2005. When I became pregnant with our first child, I decided it would be the perfect time to quit my “9-5” job of technical writing to focus on photography full-time. I might have been a little naive, but in August 2007, I quit my full-time job, delivered our son two weeks later, and never looked back at corporate life! I said yes to every session and did all of the weddings (booking 30 weddings shortly after quitting my job).
In 2017, after my youngest went to kindergarten, I decided to open a studio space in downtown La Crosse, WI to photograph maternity, newborns, older babies, and families. It has been the best decision, and I love connecting again with my past wedding clients and meeting lots of new families.
Enter 2020 though and now after being able to spend so much time with my family again on the weekends, I have decided to stop taking weddings starting in 2022. This decision is not something that came easy to me. I have realized though how quickly my two boys are growing up and how much I want to do with them yet before they head off on their own.
Contact me for details on my pricing and availability for maternity, newborn, older baby, and family sessions!
My favorites include ice cream, twinkle lights, the Packers, golden retrievers (especially my dog, Annie), visiting Door County, reading in bed, hiking the beautiful bluffs in La Crosse, and my family.
My studio is located in downtown La Crosse, Wisconsin. I’m available by appointment.
