Hartford Wisconsin Family Photographer

Unscripted, chaotic, messy, beautiful, sweet, hilarious, fun. Family photography is in a realm all of its own. Family photos are meant to encapsulate the genuine nature of your tribe, because of this, I don’t believe they should be stuffy or overly posed. The best images are created when you give yourself the freedom to let your kids run wild, dance, play games, snuggle, share an ice cream, and ENJOY uninterrupted time together. I’m simply present to capture the love &  joy that are already there!

Frequently Asked Questions



Where are you based?

I’m based out of Hartford, Wisconsin and I book sessions and weddings all throughout Wisconsin. I travel frequently to Milwaukee and am happy to find funky locations anywhere!


Do you photograph destination weddings/elopements?

Yes! Absolutely. I have traveled to 27 countries and my passport is up to date. I have photographed a lovely beach wedding in Cabo san Lucas and would love to capture more celebrations in beautiful locations!


How would you describe your style?

Bright, bold, vibrant, colorful, happy, effervescent, timeless, genuine, candid! 


Editing style?

I try to stay as true to life as possible! 



How far in advance do I need to book with you?

I recommend reaching out for wedding photography services at least 9 months before your celebration. Portrait sessions do fill up quickly

also so reach out at least 2 months prior to when you’d like to have them done. Fall is crazy busy, keep that in mind!


How many weddings do you take on each year?


What happens if you have an emergency come up on our wedding day?

Knock on wood, this has never happened before (Thank God!!), but if something does arise, I do have a fantastic network of photographers that I collaborate with who could come to my rescue!

Do you have options for second photographers and what are the benefits of having two shooters

at my wedding?

Yes! I work with a network of amazing photographers in the area and we help each other out when it comes to second shooting wedding celebrations! The benefits of having more than one photographer on your day are numerous! Having a second photographer at your wedding allows for more creativity and different perspectives in your final gallery. A second photographer can also help streamline the timeline of your day if you have a large wedding party, guest count or multiple locations involved.



Can I give you a specific list of shots for you to take?

I use Pinterest from time to time for inspiration but I do not typically do copy-cat images since there are so many variables involved. I do have a Timeline Worksheet that I use for my wedding couples to list out all of the shots they’d like to have captured. It helps keep the day-of organized and running smoothly! 


What rights do I have with my images?

I provide fully retouched, high-resolution images in an online gallery with full printing rights. You may use your images for personal use. I retain all rights. 


Can I have or view the RAW images?

No. RAW images straight out of camera are dull and unrefined. The real magic happens during post processing when the various editing techniques I employ bring the images to life.

Do you limit the number of files received?

No. I curate and then furnish all of the beautiful images from your gallery. You can expect at least 75-100 images in your final gallery. 

How many images for a regular session? How many images for a wedding?

For a regular session, you can expect a minimum of 75 images. For a typical full wedding day, you can expect a minimum of 1200 images.


How long does it take to receive final galleries?

I keep the lines of communication open with my clients because some seasons are busier than others but normally, regular sessions are delivered within 2 weeks. Weddings are delivered within 60 days.


Payment / Insurance information

Do you have insurance?



What does your payment schedule look like?

A non-refundable retainer is required to secure your wedding date and the final payment is due 30 days prior to the wedding. Session payments are due the date of the session.
