Built in the late 1800's, my studio is home to great history & memories. A childhood dream was realized when I opened my boutique style photography studio loft in this unique space filled with character. The space combined with our location in the quaint downtown area of Hudson, WI offers the capability for custom photography sessions indoors in addition to personalized on-location sites. My signature portrait style consists of simple,

yet strong composition resulting in images that are both honest and highly emotive. Foregoing stiff poses and forced smiles, I interact with subjects in such a way that unveils their distinct personalities. This approach combined with exquisite attention to detail provides for a comfortable and relaxed photo session and extraordinary images.

And baby makes three…

I posted the first series of images from my first session with this smiley princess last week, but had to share a few from our second session where we focused on the family and daddy/baby photos.  This little peanut slept, yet again, throughout the entire session.  (I could get used to babies like her!!)  It was so cute watching her dad swoon all over her…you can tell he is in heaven with his two beautiful girls at home!  Congratulations again, Brent and Susan.

Smile…

This little princess was joyfully welcomed home just a few weeks ago by her loving family and what a good baby she is!  She slept through the entire session including multiple outfit changes…such a trooper!  I started the session with some classic, simple shots and then moved onto some of her pink, frilly outfits.  No sooner did I get her in a pink blanket and bow than she flashed the biggest grin I’ve ever seen on a baby her size.  Something tells me she might just be a girly-girl!  Brent and Suz…thanks again for having me out to photograph your beautiful baby girl.  Congratulations!

The boys…

The past few weeks have been filled with babies, babies and more babies!  I’ve had the pleasure of working with this beautiful family since they welcomed their first boy home.  When I found out they would be welcoming another baby boy into the family I couldn’t have been more excited for them.  As a mama of two boys myself, I know the joy this family will experience in the years ahead as they watch the brothers grow and develop that brotherly bond.  The mom of these precious duo wanted to be sure to get some shots of the proud papa with his two boys.  I have no doubt their dad will have the boys out playing football in no time at all!  Congratulations again, Jim and Christa.

Blessing…

This beautiful baby girl was recently welcomed home by a very loving and grateful family.  Shortly after she was born her parents noticed that she was turning blue and seemed to be having trouble breathing.  Luckily, the attentive staff at the hospital recognized something was definitely wrong and arranged for her to be taken to Children’s Hospital in St. Paul.  After undergoing a barrage of tests, the Dr.’s determined the incident was merely a “fluke” with no signs of any relapse or likelihood of relapse.  Needless to say, her parents ready to go home after a week’s stay at the hospital and her big brothers couldn’t have been more ready to meet their baby sister.  Cynthia, thanks again for having me out to photograph your precious baby girl!

Tervetuloa (that’s “Welcome” in Finnish)…

Johanna and Antti recently welcomed a precious baby boy into the world and what a delight it was to work with them. This beautiful couple is from Finland but recently moved to the U.S. for Antti’s job.  When I arrived at their home for the shoot I was greeted by Johanna’s mom who had flown all the way from Finland to meet the newest addition to the family.  Despite the language barrier, there was no denying the love she had for her grandson.  I can’t imagine how hard it was for her to return to Finland leaving both her daughter and grandbaby behind.  Luckily, Johanna and Antti will return to Finland during the off-season which will give grandma plenty of time to love on that sweet baby boy!

Antti, we wish you the very best at the 2010 Olympics.  Congratulations!!

Welcome, baby…

I recently had the opportunity to photograph the newest addition to the Lund family…a beautiful baby girl.  She has three older siblings that absolutely adore her, especially the oldest one who is so very grateful to finally have a sister!  Thanks again, Jennifer, for having me out to photograph your family.  You have such an amazing eye for design and I loved having such a gorgeous nursery to work in while I was there.

A new year…

It only seems fitting to kick the new year off with a blog post featuring a brand new baby.  Beautiful baby Cleo was welcomed home by her loving family just a few weeks before Christmas.  Her mama shares my love for all things paper so I was thrilled when she enlisted my help with the birth announcements.  What a fun project this was for me to work on…I loved every minute of it!  Thanks again, Darcy!

“Baby Go-Go”…

I met Elly for the first time last year when I photographed her one-year portraits.   When I arrived to photograph Elly’s brand new baby sister, Reese, Elly answered the door and walked me right over to her little sister, pointed and said “Baby Go-Go”!  Her parents must have sensed my confusion over the name so they explained that Elly was given a doll to prepare her for the arrival of the baby.  Elly named her doll “Baby Go-Go” and now that the real baby has arrived she is sticking to the name she picked. She is so proud of her new Baby Go-Go!  Congratulations Nick, Kara & Elly on the arrival of Reese (a.k.a. Baby Go-Go)…you have a beautiful family.

Dad pitched in and helped keep Elly occupied so I could get some solo shots of Reese…I couldn’t resist taking a few shots of this scene!

Baby Brother…

Sweet little Emerson was so very excited to introduce me to her baby brother.  She brought me over to him and nearly burst with pride as she told me all about the newest addition to her family.  Soon after the initial introduction she took me upstairs for a tour of her new bedroom and was thrilled when I suggested we take some pictures of her on her brand new bed!  Her brother slept through most of my visit and didn’t seem the least bit bothered when I turned the camera on him.  Thanks again, Sam and Stacey, for having me out to photograph your beautiful family!

The Sweetest Thing…

What’s not to love about my job?  Especially when it involves photographing a sweet (and very sleepy) baby boy!  We had the U2 lullaby cd playing throughout his session and I’m fairly convinced he and I share the same taste in music.  Note the smile in the last shot of the blog post…that was taken just seconds after I mentioned how much I love U2.  You have great taste, little man!
