I am super outgoing, caring ,have fun unicorn hair, am super bubbly... and I treat everyone like family... and I love hugs.
Expect hugs.... no really.
I lead with my heart in life, so the same will be done with your portrait experience with me.
I am a proud mother of two beautiful children that keeps me busy at home, and have a super hubby that keeps me grounded. I had a big career change about 12 years ago... where I gave up my police badge for a camera and haven't looked back since. I put my heart and soul into every client that walks in the door and everyone leaves feeling amazing and wanting more.
I love chocolate, Qdoba, playing volleyball, real estate, listening to podcasts, Amazon, and wine... in no particular order.
My favorite genres to photograph are high school seniors, families, weddings, beauty and fashion as well as working with adorable fun kiddos. I love to shoot natural light work, then get down and dirty with edgier lit work in studio and outside.
I am working for my Masters in Photography, being involved in the Professional Portrait Association and well as the Wisconsin Professional Portrait Association and have been awarded in State and International print competitions. I am mostly self-taught, but have traveled the country learning from the best in the industry to better my skills and make great photographs.
Why do I do this whole photography thing? Everyone deserves to feel special, wanted and beautiful. It's all about the experience I create... I would do this for free (if I didn't have to pay the bills) because I LOVE making people feel amazing and empowered. We ALL need to EXIST in portraits. It isn't about us, guys.... it's about our kids some day and what they will have to remember us by. Make it awesome and make it memorable.
