My studio is operated out of my home in Patch Grove, Wisconsin and has been in business since August of 2006. I am open by appointment only, but I am flexible, so just let me know what works for you!
I was born and raised in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin. After graduating high school, I attended Hawkeye Community College in Waterloo, Iowa. I graduated in 2004 with an Associate of Applied Arts Degee in Professional Photography. (I majored in portrait photography!)
In June of 2009 I was accepted to be a volunteer photographer for Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep, which is a non-profit organization that offers remembrance photography to parents suffering the loss of a baby. For more information, please visit http://www.nowilaymedowntosleep.org/home/ In April of 2010 I became an Area Coordinator for Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep.
In January of 2010 I was accepted to be a member of the South Central Photographers Association, which is an organization of photographers, for photographers in the Central Wisconsin Area.In 2010, I won Portrait Image of the Year at South Central with my image titled, "Am I in Trouble?" Pretty exciting for my first year with South Central!
I married my husband Josh on July 23rd, 2005 and we had Owen Edward on April 28th, 2007. (The day after my 24th birthday!) Aaren Randall was born December 18th, 2008 and I couldn't be happier to have two sons. Owen's and Aaren's births were the two best days of my life!
When I'm not busy in the studio, I enjoy spending my time with Josh, Owen and Aaren. But no matter what, wherever we go or whatever we do, I always have a camera in my hand!
