for the expecting parents

in-home newborn

There is nothing more special than welcoming a new life into your home! My lifestyle in-home newborn sessions focus on capturing your family's connection with your newest little family member. From dance parties in the living room to siblings cuddling their new little partner in crime, I am there to capture the sweetest moments that make your family special. All members of the family (even furry ones) are invited to take part in the majority of our session and I will be sure to capture some 'just baby' shots as well! There is no place like home, and having these sweet in-home memories of your baby's first few days at home will be so very cherished in the years to come.


While your pregnancy may seem like it goes on forever, those nine months really do fly by! Be sure to have this amazing and fleeting moment in your life captured. Your little ones will love to look back at Mom's beautiful belly and imagine how in the world they once fit in there. My maternity sessions can take place at an outdoor location or within your home. During these sessions, I always focus on capturing your family's beautiful connection and the amazing anticipation of your little one on the way! Dads, siblings, and pets are always encouraged to join in the fun. I always aim to schedule these sessions when Mom is between 32 and 36 weeks along.

fresh 48

You've waited nine long months to meet your new baby! Be sure to have these precious first moments captured in the place where you first met them. My fresh 48 hospital sessions take place within the first 48 hours of your baby's life at the hospital or birthing center where you deliver. Siblings are encouraged to take part in most of the session and I will do my best to be there to capture those sweet moments when they meet their new family member. We will focus the session around documenting your family's love and excitement for their new little baby. I will also be sure to capture all of the amazing, fresh, newborn details that vanish too quickly.



I offer several different value collections, ensuring that we capture every precious moment of your growing family’s story. These collections include three full photo sessions with me at a discounted price. Check out my newborn collection options below:

Bump to Baby - includes the maternity, fresh 48, and in-home newborn session
Maternity Plus - includes the maternity, in-home newborn, and one year family session
Milestone Collection - includes an in-home newborn, six month, and one year family session

capture those sweet memories


Southeastern Wisconsin makes an absolutely gorgeous backdrop for your family memories. My outdoor family and child sessions focus on capturing the natural and genuine connection within your beautiful family. I have several favorite locations in the Waukesha, Lake Country, and Milwaukee areas that provide beautiful scenery for these sessions. I also love to explore new locations! All of my outdoor sessions will take place 1-2 hours before sunset to allow for the most beautiful light.

in-home lifestyle

Home is where the heart is. Your unique home can create the most magical memories that you will cherish forever. My lifestyle in-home sessions focus on capturing your family’s genuine story within the comfort of your walls. These sessions can be perfect for capturing a special family milestone or just ensuring that you have memories of just an ordinary day at home. Let's make some cookies, decorate the Christmas tree, or have a family dance party in the living room. Your family is unique, so your captured memories should be as well.

extended family

Bringing together several generations can be such an amazing moment to capture. My extended family sessions document all of the sweet connections between grandparents, cousins, siblings, and the whole gang. We will do a variety of groupings and be sure to capture both posed and candid moments. These large family photo sessions can be the best gift to grandparents. There is nothing more special than family, be sure to have a few memories with everyone together!

and engagements

There is nothing more beautiful than two souls in love, so let’s tell your sweet love story! I will work with you both to sort through all of your desired details and be by your side to capture every moment on one of the most incredible days of your life. All of my wedding packages include two photographers and a complimentary engagement session. You will receive full resolution edited images, a print release, and a password protected online gallery for review and print ordering. My wedding packages begin at $2499.
