Mini-shoot for Christmas cards!

Simply adorable. These are my little cousins, and I love them dearly.


Beautiful holiday indoor shoot

The weather was very cold this day, so we decided to do a shoot in this family's living room. I did their pictures last year as well and it's amazing how much the kids have changed! The boy is energetic, as boys are, and reminded me of probably how my son will be someday at that age. He was so cute! And his sister was playing the guitar when I first got there and I am always happy to see kids into music, as I am a proud "child of music" (flute for me). I very much enjoyed seeing the interaction between all of them!

Thank you for having me into your home, and for choosing me to do your holiday portraits.

This is honest to goodness my favorite picture I've taken to date. They're beautiful children!


Large group family photoshoot!

This family suffered the loss of their father/husband a couple years ago, but they were kind enough to allow me into their home to take some portraits of the three daughters and their loved ones, as well as Mom. I could tell that this family just had so much love for each other, and it made the shoot a lot of fun.

Little "A" turns one!

This little guy was so adorable, I couldn't help but take as many pictures as possible of him. I can't believe how much he has changed since I took his two month pictures! We had a beautiful, sunny evening for this shoot.


A beautiful fall day at Riverside Park!

I had the pleasure of shooting this beautiful, fun family of four at one of the most-requested local scenes, Riverside Park. In fact, it was probably one of the last times at the park before it transforms into a winter wonderland scene for the annual Rotary Lights (they are turned on the day after Thanksgiving and run through the New Year).

Anyway, right off the bat I could tell this was a close family and thus, it was easy to capture the love between them. It was a little cold out, but I was happy with the shots we got.

Thank you for choosing me as your photographer!

Fun family of three!

Well, the weather was definitely perfect for a fall family photoshoot -- it ended up being one of the last nice days for the month of October! We headed to a beautiful setting and captured this family's candid moments and also did some posed shoots. I sure had fun! What a little doll the little girl was. :)

A beautiful October wedding

I am just getting caught up with updating my site as I have been so busy lately with shoots! A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of shooting a beautiful wedding --  my first wedding, in fact -- and despite the fact that it was misting outside, there was this beautiful fog on the Mississippi River and it made for a dreamy backdrop for this couple to tie the knot. I was so honored to be a part of their special day.

Jim & Michelle, congratulations! The love between you was so apparent to me and I wish you many more years of happiness. Your journey has just begun and may your "scrapbook" of your future hold many beautiful memories together.

Beautiful family of five!

I did this shoot on THE day the fall colors were at their peak in the Coulee Region. So gorgeous! Remember to book your session soon to get those family pictures before our weather turns too cold! The holiday season is almost upon us.

Here's looking at you (or me)!

This is my family's most recent attempt at a self family portrait. Note: 1) I was not behind the camera so could not see the expressions (thus, please see Son #1's frown, which he would not turn upside down no matter what) and 2) I am not a fan of using the remote. But here you have it, our family in a natural setting. This scenery, if you so enjoy it, is available for booking and it's my newest top-secret amazingly beautiful location in the La Crosse area. Please call/text me at 715-586-8056, or email me at if you would like more details.

Two brothers!

These two boys were so sweet, and I had a lot of fun seeing their personalities come out as the session progressed. The older one is five-and-a-half and full of expression, and the younger one is eighteen months. He was all too inquisitive and he loved to take a closer look at my camera, walking right up to it with his big, blue eyes.

Thank you for allowing me to capture these moments with your beautiful boys!
