Booking is currently CLOSED at this time. Thank you for your consideration. 



Don't wait for life to calm down before booking your session because let's face it, that might not happen. Capture the wild ride of parenthood before your kids grow up.

From chaos to joy.
Find beauty in the journey. 

How far in advance should I book?

I recommend filling out my contact form as soon as you're interested in a session to make sure I'm available. There is no such things as reaching out too soon. At a minimum, at least 2 weeks in advance of the date of your session is needed to make sure you have the best experience!

How long does it take to receive my photos?

Nobody enjoys waiting forever and a day to see their images so I lightly edit your images and send your proofing gallery to you within 7 days of your session. You'll then pick your favorites and I'll go and work my magic a little more for those final selections. Final images will be back to you within 2 weeks. 

What should I wear to my family photo session?

There are many great resources on my site for clothing suggestions. Check out my blog for more information! We'll also chat about this during our pre-session call. 

What if it rains the day of my session?

The weather is always unpredictable in Wisconsin, so if it's not ideal for the day of your session, we reschedule. There is not a fee to reschedule due to weather, so don't sweat it!

Where are sessions held?

Sessions are either held outdoors, at your home, or at a local studio rental. I offer sessions in Appleton as well as Green Bay, Neenah, Oshkosh and the Fox Cities. I have plenty of suggestions based on the type of location you're interested in. I'm also open to shooting at new locations based on your preference. 

When are sessions held?

Typically, sessions are held in the evening about 1.5-2 hours before sunset. Keep in mind the time of year and sunset times, so it may be later in summer and earlier in fall. I shoot M-Th and occasionally on Sunday evenings. 

How do I book a session with you?

To book your session, pick your desired date on my calendar above and complete a short questionnaire. I will get back to you in 24-48 hours to let you know if I'm available! You may also email me at

Do you offer giftcards?

Yes! Head to this page to select an amount for a gift card. You will be emailed a code to use towards a session. Please reach out if you need a different amount than what's shown. I'm happy to create a custom amount for you!
