Hello and welcome! I am honored and humbled you are taking time to visit my site and learn more about me. I am an on-location photographer specializing in maternity, newborns and baby’s first year. I am located in Cedarburg, Wisconsin and serve the Ozaukee County, Wisconsin and surrounding areas. First and foremost, I am a mother to my four children, three girls and one boy, who range in age from 5 to 15. I am blessed to be their mother and they inspire me each and every day.
I attended Marquette University and graduated in 1994 with a degree in Accounting. I spent 15 years working in the corporate world. While I loved the challenge of accounting and auditing, I knew that eventually I wanted to do something different. I have spent the past five years enjoying photography as a passionate amateur.
When deciding to start a photography business, I knew I wanted to specialize in expecting moms (and dads too!), newborns and babies. I am in such incredible awe of the miracle of life, I knew deep down I would be forever happy capturing new life ~ whether photographing you while expecting, capturing your newborn in the hospital while your other little ones meet their new brother or sister for the first time, or capturing you and your newborn at home. Knowing I can capture these special times for your family makes my heart sing.
You are expecting for such a short time and newborns are only so fresh and new for so long, that capturing these fleeting times for you would be an honor. Professionally, I continually work on improving my photography skills and have taken numerous classes and workshops, including some specific to maternity and newborns. Capturing the best possible images for you is of utmost importance to me, as is the safety of your newborn.

If you are interested in a learning more about me personally, here are some random facts:
I reside in the same city where I grew up.
I was extremely shy as a child and was extremely concerned with complying with rules.
I love music. I mean really love music. I prefer music to TV and listen to it most of the day. It would be really hard to me to pick a favorite musician, but my current favorites are Toby Mac, Need to Breathe and Thousand Foot Krutch.
I love to knit and find it very relaxing. I also love to dye my own yarn ~ I love the creative process of working with color.
I have never traveled out the country. One of my biggest regrets is not traveling when I had the opportunity. One day, I hope to be fortunate enough to travel and see certain parts of the world.
I love to look at photographs from past years. In this digital age, it’s disheartening the amount images that are never printed. Please take the time to print your images and put together simple albums for your family and your children (this continues to be one of my 2015 goals).
I have this deep desire to be crafty. As my children grow up, I hope to have more time to do some DIY projects around the house. I’ll either have successful projects or a bunch of Pinterest fails to share with you.
I love to photograph using film. You may at times, see me pull out an antiquated looking box with no display on the back. Yes, it’s a film camera.
