Beautiful photos deserve to be artfully displayed. I offer a variety of mediums for your finished photos- all produced at professional-only print labs. Traditional prints, standout prints, canvas wraps, metal prints, and other products are available. Photos will be packaged with a personal touch.
For those who wish to take printing into their own hands, I also offer digital copies of your final photos with each session. At your consultation, we’ll discuss a little about your wishes for your finished products.
This means I specialize in shooting portraits using ambient light from the sun, manipulating the light in the way I compose a shot and pose my subject. I prefer the way portraits look without the use of artificial lighting sources. Most sessions will be performed outdoors but can usually be performed indoors still with the use of natural light.
With most locations I use, I can predict how the sun will affect the area and my subject during different times, weather, and seasons. I pay close attention to how light falls on my subjects. Portraits can be shot using natural light on a sunny day, on an overcast day, in any season, and even with a little rain! (When need be of course, I do use some lighting assistance.)
Ambient Light Photography
My style is what is known as photojournalistic photography or “candid” as many people call it. This means, I shoot moments as they happen. When I see you talking, walking, laughing, or just gazing off, that is when I shoot my photos.
I do not pose my clients, but simply guide them to different positions that are the most flattering and looking the most natural for each person. The last thing I want is for you to get your photos back and have your family member or friend tell you that you do not look like yourself or that you look uncomfortable in your photos. At the end of the day, they’re ‘your’ photos and they simply need to express YOU.
I have a degree in Mass Communication from Winona State in Minnesota. My photography career began in 2011 working for Martinus Photography in Onalaska, WI as head photographer and studio manager. In 2013 I began to take on weddings and other photo sessions under my own business and Martinus Photography moved to Minneapolis where they now have a large studio just outside of downtown.
Today, I partner often still with Martinus Photography and often join forces with two powerful boss ladies from college, Roxie of Roxanne Elise Photography in Fon Du Lac, WI and Katie of Blu Photography and Design in Lake Mills, WI.
