hi, i'm jamie
meet my crazy crew

Hi, I’m Jamie! I’m the girl behind the camera at Von Rueden Creative. I am a born and raised Wisconsin girl with a deep love for creativity and design. I am based in the Pewaukee area and photograph families all over the greater Waukesha and Milwaukee areas.

If you are looking for a fun photo session that includes a lot of laughter, cuddles, and a bit of sarcasm, I’m your girl. I am a proud Mom of four beautiful kiddos! Yup, four : ) They have taught me how quickly these amazing years can go, and how important it is to capture those sweet and fleeting moments.

I know first hand that family photo sessions can be stressful. But I assure you, they can be an absolute blast as well! I will grab one or two posed family moments and then spend the majority of our time capturing all of the amazing ‘in between’ and candid moments that make your family special.

You can find my most recent work on Facebook or Instagram. Feel free to reach out if you would like to book a session or would like some additional information. I can’t wait to meet you!

from my families:


Jamie was so great to work with! She makes the experience enjoyable and she does a great job capturing pictures that are natural and genuine. She was very patient with our newborn's "'meltdowns" during the shoot which helped ease my nerves. The pictures turned out better than I could have ever imagined (I have a hard time picking a favorite!!) and I look forward to working with Jamie again in the future!

I could not be happier with our photos. Jamie was so sweet, incredibly patient with my kids, and made us feel really comfortable. The pictures are dreamy and beautiful. I really appreciated her link to recommendations on what to wear and how to prep your house - it made the experience stress-free. I would absolutely book her again and plan to. Thanks Jamie!

Jamie works so well with kids and is incredibly patient. She is so quick to adapt and in doing so, beautifully captures each child’s personality. The was she edits the pictures are beautiful, truly making them works of art!

Jamie was amazing to work with and did a great job capturing the love and joy in our little family! We have so many great photo's to choose from, I can't pick my favorite! We had a smash cake session and she was able to turn around a picture in a couple days so we could use it at our party! I would highly recommend Jamie, looking forward to working with you again!

I wish I could rate her higher than 5 stars! Jamie is professional but fun, reasonably priced but worth a million bucks, and thorough but timely! She was so great with our newborn and captured images I thought were only possible in pinterest photos <3 We have absolutely found our new family photographer, and can't wait for the next session and opportunity to work with her again!

Jamie is absolutely wonderful! She perfectly captures our little family and even makes our toddler smile when he's being grumpy. She's wonderfully accommodating and makes us all feel comfortable. We will always use her for family photos!

Jamie did such an amazing job capturing our early moments as a family of four! Her patience, professionalism and talent created an all around great experience and I look forward to her capturing more of my family in the future. Thank you so very much, Jamie!!

I would highly recommend Von Rueden Creative to anyone. Jamie is a very friendly, easy-going and talented photographer. She captured our wedding last fall and even designed our save-the-dates and thank you cards. I was very pleased with the experience as a whole and absolutely loved the photos!
