The Experience

A little note: I am expecting my fourth child in June and will not be taking on any sessions in 2015 so I can spend time with my family and focus on my other work commitments. If you’d like to be placed on a waiting list for 2016, please send me an email at

the session

My philosophy is that photo sessions should be about having fun and I plan them so that the location, theme, and activities are a perfect complement to the people in front of my lens. I focus on capturing connection, letting kids be kids, and evoking natural expressions more so than striving for perfectly posed portraits. I always want to be able to look at an image and feel something. For me, that feeling is what makes an image. And if you want to sit back and look at that photo for a few minutes and then print it for your home, well, that’s the icing on the cake. At my sessions no one is allowed to be stressed out. Let’s all relax, have fun, be a little silly, and capture the beauty of real life.


I just love shooting at unique locations that reflect the interests and values of the families I photograph. I shoot on-location using available light at clients’ homes, parks, nature preserves, farms, historic downtown areas, and other scenic locations. Sessions are scheduled at times when lighting conditions are ideal for a specific location.

session pricing

$795. Your single fee includes a pre-consultation via email or phone, our time together at the session, and a finished gallery of 40 images delivered digitally. Simple is beautiful, folks, and this is simple.

Sessions include immediate family, take place at a location decided upon collaboratively, and usually last 1 to 1 1/2 hours (lifestyle newborn sessions may take 2 to 3 hours). Approximately 2-3 weeks after your session you will receive your gallery of digital photos (40 images) on a USB drive. Clients receive a print release which will allow them to print photos at the size and quantity desired. Additional products such as canvases, albums, prints, and more are available on an a la carte basis.

A minimum $50 travel fee will be charged when a session takes place more than 20 miles outside of Hudson, WI.

lifestyle newborn sessions

It is best if newborns are photographed within the first two weeks of life. Please contact me before baby is born to reserve your session. Newborn sessions take place in clients’ homes for the comfort of new moms and babies, and may last 2-3 hours.

Please note that prices are subject to change without notice unless locked in with your session fee. All orders are subject to state and local sales tax.
