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.




Pretty in Pink…

Ever since this client told me they were expecting baby #2 I suspected she might just be having the “pink” variety.  When I learned of the baby’s arrival I wasn’t shocked to hear that it was, in fact a baby girl…and a beautiful one to boot!  This little princess has a loveable big brother who is so very proud of his new title.  Oh, how I loved watching him snuggle up to her and smother her with kisses.  Thanks again, Schultz’s (no relation…just coincidence) and I hope you are enjoying your time back in Canada.  I’ll see you soon!




Please excuse me while I put on my official “auntie hat” for a moment to show off the newest addition to the Schultz family.  Evan Thomas was joyfully welcomed into the world a few weeks ago and we were eager to make the treck up north to meet him.  I now have 10 nieces and nephews which I’m fairly certain makes me a professional auntie, right?! 

On a sidenote: I’m working on some fun and exciting projects right now but regular blog updates will return in the near future!  Stay tuned!



New beginnings | Hudson, Wisconsin photography studio

It seems fitting to start out the new year with a blog entry showcasing a beautiful newborn baby so here it goes!  This sleepy bundle of joy was welcomed home by his parents and two very loving (and absolutely adorable) sisters.  I’ve been photographing this family for a little over two years now and it has been such an amazing experience to watch their family grow.  Congratulations again you guys…I’m so happy for you!

Little miss Amelia is accustomed to being the star of the show when I come over and she put on quite the show to ensure she was granted adequate time in the spotlight. 



Welcome, little one…

In the hustle and bustle of this busy season I have to admit that it’s refreshing to work with these little ones who have no real sense of urgency (unless they are hungry, of course).  This beautiful baby girl spent the entire session in what appeared to be a very blissful sleep.  Congratulations on the newest addition to your family you guys!

“Big brother…”

I was in Minneapolis to photograph a beautiful baby girl who was recently welcomed home by her loving family.  When I arrived she was still sleeping so I took that opportunity to spend time with her big brother.  He and I had quite the time together…even in the pouring rain and I have to tell you that my heart melted when he offered to share his umbrella with me.  His little sister was just as sweet and I still can’t get over how bright-eyed and giggly she was through the entire session.

Up North…

 A few months ago I received a call from a client whom I’ve worked with several times before, asking if I would consider traveling to her when they welcomed baby number 4 into their family.  I was delighted to have the opportunity not only to photograph sweet baby Brady, but also to travel up north with my family.  We left a few days prior to the session and spent time hiking in Gooseberry Falls, riding a train through the northwoods, and learning how to skip rocks (“it’s all in the stone” according to my 5 year-old son).  I love that my “work” allows me opportunities such as this…gotta’ love it!

Welcome Brady!

His loving siblings:

Your brothers and sister have taught you well I see:

A little behind-the-scenes action…I couldn’t resist:

I also had the privilege of working with my client’s sister-in-law whose waterfront property was absolutely gorgeous (as were the kiddos)!

Thanks again you guys!!

Never say never…

When I showed up to photograph baby “P” his mom let it be known that her son has no interest in being bare.  She told tales of the yelps, hollers, and squeals he gives anytime she gets him ready for a bath.  Evidently he is just one of those babies that prefers to be warm and toasty…can you blame him?!  All I said was, “Never say never because you just never know!”  Toward the end of the session I was feeling brave and confident that I could take on this lil’ babe…guess what:

I won.  :)

On the first day of school in 9th grade I was seated next to the “new girl” in school as her last name happened to fall right behind mine on the roster.  Within 30 seconds of sitting down we were doing that hyper-speed-chitter-chatter 14 year-old girls are known for.  From that moment on we were joined at the hip and before long we were officially “BFF’s”.  While other friendships faded in and out over the years this one remained through thick and thin.  It’s been almost 19 years since the day we met and although we don’t talk as much as I’d like it seems we never miss a beat when we do get together.  I recently made a trip to visit her and meet the newest addition to her family…a beautiful baby girl!  So without further ado, I proudly introduce Baby “A” who was welcomed home by mom, dad, big brothers Chase and Jacob and watched over by big brother, Ethan, from above.

Sweet Dreams… | Minneapolis newborn photography

I’ve fallen behind on blogging and for that I apologize!  I am working frantically to catch up before I leave for my work trip to Las Vegas next week. 

I coulen’t resist posting this one though!  This little bundle of joy was blissfully unaware of the happenings around him.  He slept (and snored) through most of the session…gotta’ love that!  Congratulations to the “B” family on their newest addition.




Dual Citizen… | Edina, Minnesota children’s photography

Ahhh…’tis the craziest time of the year with the holidays fast approaching.  My blog has taken a bit of a back seat in the past few weeks but I do hope to return soon with regular updates.  In the meantime… 

Meet baby “J”… born in America to two Canadian parents.  What a lucky little man to be both a citizen of the U.S. and Canada!

Foregoing forced smiles and stiff poses, I create a relaxed environment resulting in images that are both honest and highly emotive. Whether it is an inquisitive stare, a shy smile, or a deep belly laugh, I strive to capture those fleeting moments for you to treasure.
