Owen, 1 Year | Windmill Park, Baldwin, WI

Have I mentioned lately how much I love when one year old photo shoots?? Especially when I also did the newborn and 6 month photos ?? 🙂 Owen is just that! We met over in Baldwin at the cute little Windmill Park. After a few photo there we headed back to their house to do a few there – and attempt to get some with their two dogs!

The Evans Family | Rod & Gun Park, Eau Claire, WI

Elliana had a fun surprise for me on this photo shoot – she changed into a ‘big sister’ shirt!! I met the Evans family on a warm evening (but we beat the rain!) at the Rod & Gun Park in Eau Claire. We did a few photos and then Eli changed into her awesome new shirt for some photos that Mom & Dad could use to announce their new little one!

Girard Family | Phoenix Park, Eau Claire, WI

The Girard’s are the first couple I have had the pleasure of working with since their engagement. It really is one of the most amazing parts of my job – watching families grow. I did Justine and Derek’s engagement, wedding and little Jamesons’ newborn photos! And just a few weeks ago we met at Phoenix Park for his 6 month photo shoot – I can hardly believe it! I’m so looking forward to seeing how much he has changed at his one year photo session.

Virks Family | Stanley, WI Family Photography

At the Banbury Art Crawl I raffled off two free portrait sessions – and Katie was one of my winners! I met her out at her parent’s beautiful property on Otter Lake in Stanley, WI. It was the house Katie grew up in and her parents recently put it on the market. So it was cool that we got to do them there in case it was their last summer there!

Brady Nicholas | Eau Claire Newborn Photography


I’ve known little Brady’s Mama for a few years now. She was so sweet when I was pregnant with Deansen – and who I know totally knew I was pregnant before we were telling anyone! So I was so excited to find out she was pregnant and enjoyed sharing stories with her. I was thrilled to photograph little Mr. Brady at their home.

Downtown Eau Claire Family Photography | Becker/Stephens Family


Casey is a friend of my husband’s and has been his insurance guy for awhile. When I first met him a year or so ago we were sitting around our kitchen table talking and he kept mentioning his wife, Deb. After a little while it finally clicked – Deb. Deborah. Deborah Becker from State Farm Insurance. I said ‘wait is your wife Deborah Becker?!’. If you live in Eau Claire there it is almost impossible to not know or have heard of Deborah Becker. I was a little giddy – she’s kind of a local celebrity! A few months ago they asked me to do their family photos and I was thrilled! Deb likes choosing different themes for her family photo shoots and this time she wanted them to be very bright and colorful. With their adorably colorful outfits we hit their office for a few photos and then headed out around the corner to a little area that overlooks the Chippewa River.

Noah | Family Photos

I’ve known Noah’s Dad for just about 15 years! Mark was one of the first people I met as a freshman at UWEC and became one of my very good friends. We’ve kept in touch over the years but this past weekend was the first time I’ve seen him and his beautiful wife, Andrea, in quite a few years. And the first time I got to meet their ADORABLE little boy Noah.

It was a very chilly Sunday morning so we had our session at Davies Center on the UWEC campus – which was fitting given our history!

I recently got a Nikon f100 with 85mm/1.8D AF lens. I’ve ran through a couple rolls of personal work but this was the first time I tried it out at a session. So in love with these film scans of little Noah! Review of the Nikon f100 to come..

Schleusner Family Photos

The Schleusner Family, Anthony, Jodi, Emily, Jacob and Ali, heard about me through one of my wonderful clients, the Hartzel family! I love referrals 🙂

We met over at Banbury Place in Eau Claire where we had a beautiful day, although a tad windy! I’ve been to Banbury numerous times but hadn’t quite explored it all yet. The last photo was an alley we found that had some very cool brick backgrounds! Although that is where the wind really picked up! They were such a sweet family to work with!
