Baby Elisha | Racine Newborn Session

My oh my, am I in love with this sweet Racine newborn session! My dear friends Kevin and Brooke welcomed their first little boy and he is just the most precious little thing ever! I cannot get over his cheeks. I loved getting to visit and catch up, and meet baby Elisha. He did so well for his newborn session. Such a happy baby! I love the llama nursery theme, isn't it just the cutest! Since I photographed this session indoors during life with Corona, I wore a mask and kept al

Victoria | Senior Session at Plamann Park

I cannot believe this young lady is already a senior!! I had so much fun with Victoria for her senior session at Plamann Park. We chased all the light the day had to offer to create some of my favorite images. Senior years sure are looking different for 2020. And I really do feel for all the seniors navigating this strange time. So many things seniors typically look forward to have been canceled (Friday night football games, prom, spirit week, after school activities). All th

Chevalier | Fall Family Photo Session

I get to meet the best families. I love how being a photographer introduces me to so many people I never would have met! These little ladies were so funny and energetic. We had the best time giggling and dancing in the leaves, and making the best fall memories. I'm so honored by my clients who invest in my talent and business, entrust me to capture their family. It means the world to me and that feeling never gets old. Thank you Chevalier family, what a fun day this was. #kyr

Maiti | 2020 Senior

Senior sessions are such a blast to document! It's a special time of getting dressed up, having simple fun, and marking the end/beginning of a new era. High school is wrapping up, and college and careers are just around the corner. It's a season of anticipation and excitement, and all that energy shines during a senior session. I've known Maiti since she was about 10 years old, so it was so special to me to capture her senior session. We had tons of fun and I can't believe th

John + Ali | A Cambodian Love Story

John + Ali's wedding day was nothing short of lovely. The two met in Cambodia serving as full time missionaries, Ali teaching in an international school and John working as the Director of Operations for Agape International Missions, an anti-human trafficking organization. Friends and family from all over the globe traveled to celebrate the two, and it was such a blast to be a part of. Their pastor from their Cambodian church was even able to officiate their big day. To the s

Spring Blooms | Styled Shoot

As spring sprang into motion I knew I wanted to catch some fresh blooms before they were over, and I'm so glad we could make it happen. I love when I can get together with friends, dress up, and explore places for some styled shots. I love shooting with my friend Caitlin. We creatively work so well together and though we may look so serious in our dramatic photos - don't let it fool you. We laugh constantly! She's so beautiful inside and out, and she even spent some time behi

Cory + Liz | Engagement

My cousin is getting married! I love when I can photograph family. It's so special to capture the special seasons people you love are in. We had so much fun taking photos downtown, I love exploring new places with my couples. And the rain held off! Cory and Liz are so great together and I'm so happy they have found each other. I cannot wait for the whole fam-bam to be together this fall and celebrate this special couple saying 'I do!' Soon to be Mr & Mrs! Such a beautiful rin

Ross + Kylie | DePere Wedding

Ross and Kylie are MARRIED! What a fun day I had with these two. I know, I say this about ALL of my couples. But it's so true and I mean it every time. I am incredibly grateful to get to work with so many wonderful people, inside and out. I have the best of times on wedding days with my couples and I'm so thankful! Where to start with Ross and Kylie. Ross is a friend of my husband and brother-in-law. And I still remember the super-top-secret text he sent to Karl asking for my

Behind the Scenes of Five Years of Marriage

It’s been five years since we said “I do”. I slipped into a white lace gown. You dressed up in a slim, gray suit. It rained that day, and I loved the excuse to wear my striped rain-boots. We cried when I walked down the aisle. And we had the best dance party after dinner I’ve ever been to. I fell asleep on our drive to our honeymoon, but I swear you never stopped smiling. We’ve celebrated a few anniversaries together, but I’ve been looking forward to this from day one. 5 year

Jordan + Hailey | Lake Orchard Farm Wedding

Within minutes of being around these two, you're bound to smile and laugh. They are kind and funny, and have the best stories to share from their twelve years of being together. Their relationship has covered time and distance, they've put in the work to be where they are today celebrating their wedding day with all their friends and family. Hailey was the winner of a portrait session I donated to a fundraising event hosted by one of my favorite local non-profits, Valley Cats
