CAPTURING RAW, MEANINGFUL RELATIONSHIPS.
We're probably a good fit if you're planning your wedding to reflect who you are as a couple, in all of your wonderful ways.
Whether that’s close to home or far away. With everyone you love, just a few, or only the two of you. The details of your day hold significance to your relationship and you're stepping outside of the box. I resonate with the sentimental type, couples that write their own vows, throw tradition out the window, and aren't afraid to shed some tears when they catch all the feels.
I appreciate sing alongs and the those that want to get a little wild after the soft, serious moments. You can count on me to rally the troops and give direction when there seems to be none. Proponent of slowing things down to savor the moment and I'll be there to capture all of the in between.
I am a lover of love, emotion, and documenting your day in the truest way.
We spend a significant amount of time investing into another person to create something special, meaningful.
We strive to form relationships that fulfill us. Push us forward and backward. Test our patience and excite us. Whether you're recently engaged, or just want to celebrate your kick ass relationship, I'm here for you.
Every time I get to meet a new couple + shoot is the highlight of my day. I pride myself on my ability to get people to open up and feel comfortable in front of the camera. Whether it’s finding mutual weirdness or encouraging that chemistry, I pull from what I value most in my relationship and bring that to the table. I try to find a common ground to connect through and encourage my couples to talk about what they value most in each other and their relationship.
Truly the niche I am most passionate about.
PORTRAITS + LIFESTYLE
THE ESSENCE OF WHO WE ARE
Capturing your facets and telling your story
There's something really special about being one on one with someone and digging into their stories and histories and secrets. We are consistently changing, moving forward, discovering more about ourselves each and every day. Our character changes, personality develops.
There’s two approaches in these types of sessions and it all depends on what you’re looking to capture.
Portraits are meant for documenting who we are and holding onto that version of ourselves to look back at. I enjoy putting a modern twist classic images. A mix of technicality and art, a little intimate, hopefully emotional, and anything but stiff and boring.
Sometimes our facets involve specific experiences and our story deserves to be documented as it unfolds. Lifestyle sessions are meant to photograph you in your environment, candid and full of movement, truly capturing your personality and feelings.
branding + Commerical
VISUAL STORYTELLING FOR PASSIONATE BUSINESSES
YOUR BRAND DESERVES CONTENT THAT TELLS YOUR STORY.
We live in a world where visual storytelling is king and our content has to set us apart from the rest. It should deliver a message and represent what you’re all about.
I take a very collaborative approach in branding + commercial projects. We brainstorm together, throw ideas back and forth, and come up with a plan to get the most out of these sessions. From look books to catalogs, documenting your process, modern headshots, and social media marketing, we can create content together to cover it all.
I am a firm believer in Community Over Competition and helping other businesses learn + grow is a passion of mine. So much so, you can find me leading the Milwaukee Chapter of Rising Tide Society’s Tuesdays Together. I’m up to date on marketing trends, what works and what doesn’t, and all about connecting other small business owners with each other.
ONE BOND THAT STANDS APART FROM THE REST
I LIVE AND BREATHE HORSE LOVE. I GET IT. I UNDERSTAND IT. IT'S EMBEDDED IN MY BONES AND I KNOW IT'S IN YOURS TOO.
Think about what you love the most about your horse. Think about your relationship and what goes on between you both when no one is around. Now imagine if you invited someone in to capture it?
With over 15 years of experience working with horses, I have the knowledge and understanding of what goes into these relationships, how to capture them, as well as showcasing your horse in their best light.
These session are some of my favorites — they’re memorable, emotional, and honor a bond that you can’t find anywhere else. They bring back so much nostalgia and make my heart sing.
appreciation for the skin we're in
It’s important to feel comfortable and confident and proud of the home our minds live in.
I could say these sessions are all about body empowerment and self-esteem boosters, great gifts for our significant others or dramatically life changing—but I won’t. Those are all potential benefits, and I hope the experience affects you in a positive way, but I’m not going to sell what it “can” or “should be” for. Boudoir is for whatever you need it to be— to strengthen or build, celebrate or seduce, it’s about recognizing where you’re at in your life and honoring how you feel about you.
Shot in my studio, we have a variety of light + dark atmospheres to work with to create something truly beautiful. I take a more artistic approach in these sessions, slightly dramatic, a little moody but entirely about you. I’ll guide you and direct you, dance with you and let you have the final say on the poses you want to do. Be bold + vivacious or soft + intimate, I’m open to it all.
Whatever reason it may be, I hope you show up in a mindset to make yourself a little vulnerable – it’s more fun than you think.
