We had such a great time capturing a variety of images during Katie’s personal branding session.  Katie wears many entrepreneurial hats. She is a coach, a yogi, a speaker, tattooed mama and the chief rebel behind Rebel Wellness LLC. Her start-up is dedicated to empowering women to feel strong and confident in their bodies, love their bodies and themselves each and every day. Katie knew that in order for Rebel Wellness to be a success, she needed to be front and center of the brand, walking the walk and talking the talk. In her personal branding photos she wanted to project fearlessness, playfulness, confidence and “I don’t care what other people think” attitude. I think Katie embodied her brand perfectly during the experience. Her genuine, warm and fun personality shines in these photos and I’m excited to see how she uses them online to connect with her tribe of women who are looking forward to guidance on how to feel AWESOME about themselves in their everyday life. We shot at three different locations in Madison, with a mix of outdoors and indoors. This provided a variety to her library of  images; she’ll be able to keep them fresh for months to come!

Fall is here and it’s a prefect time for portraits. If you want to use this season as an opportunity to update your website with authentic branding portraits for your website, blog and social media, I’d love to help you with that! Personal branding sessions are quickly becoming my favorite type of shoot! I love the variety they offer. I love hearing the stories behind each personal brand. I love coming up with ideas on how to tell these stories through photos.

If you’re dreaming about elevating and strengthening your brand for the end of the year with beautiful photos that feel like you and tell your stories – feel free to get in touch with me for details.

Madison is in her senior year at Sauk Prairie High School but she decided to have her senior session in downtown Madison, WI. We started by exploring the area around the capitol and finished her session at Olin Park. One of the first locations that immediately came to my mind was the sign in front of the downtown public library. I always wanted to photograph somebody there and the opportunity to do it couldn’t turn out more perfect than having Madison as my model! She’s beautiful, bright and it was a pleasure to have her in front of my lens. Madison is always eager to learn and has lots of big goals for the future, which I’m sure, with her dedication and commitment, she’ll be able to reach. Thank you for spending that summer evening with me! Enjoy your senior year to the fullest and I wish you lots of ease and flow in everything you dream to accomplish!

It’s been almost a month since we’re back from our great American road trip and I’m finally ready to share some photos. This epic adventure was Sonia’s graduation gift and our first family trip when almost each night we spent in a different location (instead of staying in one spot and just doing day trips). Our final destination was Canadian Vancouver Island where we planned to stay for about a week to explore the southern part.

I was looking forward to traveling across the country and stopping at several national parks on the way. Badlands in South Dakota was the first longer stop on our route. We had a few hours to drive the scenic loop there, admire the scenery and take in the sights of magnificent rock formations. The views are out of this world. Can you spot some mountain goats frolicking on a vertical cliff in one of the photos?

After three days of driving we reached Washington State where we took a ferry to Vancouver Island and Victoria. After all the time in the car the next two days were perfect for just walking around this historic town.

One of the attractions we visited were the world-renowned Butchart Gardens. They’re so perfectly designed, it was almost a sensory overload, from the beautiful flowers and plants as well as from the number of tourists. There are several separate areas in the gardens, my favorite was The Sunken Garden, which was created in a old quarry over 100 years ago!

This might have been the most perfect rose I’ve seen in my life…

After two days of sightseeing around Victoria we were ready to hit some trails! Vancouver Island is a perfect place for outdoor enthusiasts. There are many spectacular hiking options and we were ready to experience as many places as possible during our visit. You can see some of our favorites below.

Man made Hole in the Wall that created a nice waterfall and a swimming hole below it. Somehow we missed the correct path and ended up on the wrong side of it and had to crawl through to admire its peculiar beauty.

After almost a week of exploring wilderness on Vancouver Island we took another ferry back to US and landed on Olympic Peninsula. Our plans to spend a few days there didn’t work out so instead we decided to start driving back and stopping at several national parks on the way. This is not our preferred way to visit but at least it gave us a glimpse of what’s there and a huge inspiration to come back in the future when we have more time to spend in each park.

Olympic National Park took our breaths away at Hurricane Ridge.

Mount Rainier National Park near the Visitor Center was literally flooded with tourists, but a helpful ranger suggested a hike that offered us some space and provided beautiful views of glaciers.

Yellowstone National Park is magnificent and having just 3 hours to spend there was definitely not enough. I’m sure we’ll be back to explore more.

I couldn’t believe how stunning were some of the meadows there – colorful wild flowers everywhere, it almost seemed unreal!

The most exciting moment was when while driving we stumbled upon mama bear with three cubs frolicking in the sage bushes. Seeing the bears was Sonia’s dream come true. This was her main goal for the entire trip. She really hoped to see them on Vancouver Island, which has a big bear population. I’m happy we didn’t meet face to face any while hiking in the woods. The bear family in Yellowstone was at a very safe distance 🙂

Theodore Roosevelt National Park was my dream come true, when we encountered a buffalo herd, wild horses and huge prairie dog towns. My hope was to take a photo of a buffalo crossing the road and this one politely obliged 🙂

I hope you enjoyed the photos from our great American road trip. It was a challenge to select them from almost 1500 I took… Three weeks on the road with two teenagers was also a little challenging and we were all happy to be back home 🙂

Liz is a life coach behind The Sunnyside. She uses coaching and energy healing to empower women to create the life they desire with absolute confidence. Liz personally invites and embraces change and wants to inspire other women to have that same enthusiasm about change, rather than fear. She is passionate about bringing about change for others in a way that excites rather than overwhelms. Her ultimate goal is to empower women, to excite in the possibilities rather than shy away from the what-ifs. 

Liz works from home, so this is where we started her personal brand session. We even had her client to join us for a few shots of Liz in action! Cooking is one of Liz’s favorite things to do, so this was one of the brand stories we photographed at home as well. After that we continued at one of Madison’s parks. One of the new services Liz will be offering is called “Choose Your Own Adventure Coaching”, where clients can choose to go on a walk, hike, or bike ride with her while having their session. Mosquitoes were a little challenging, but we didn’t let them bother us and were able to get the shots we wanted. Below are some of my favorites from Liz’s personal brand shoot.

Yesterday I had a pleasure to document Page and Dan’s Wisconsin State Capitol wedding. It was a very intimate and sweet ceremony with just the two of them and their two witnesses. The day was super hot and sunny which provided amazing natural light inside, a normally dark capitol building. It almost seemed like there were special spotlights just for them. After the ceremony we braved the heat to capture bride and groom portraits around the capitol. They were both so lovingly into each other and natural in front of the camera that I didn’t have to give them much directions at all! Page and Dan, thank you for having me document part of your special day and I wish you nothing but the best!

I have big news to share with you today!  Earlier this year I decided to shift my photography business and add personal brand photography to my offer (and at the same time move away from weddings). Personal branding sessions are ideal for entrepreneurs and influencers who need photos of themselves to promote their business, grow their personal brand and connect with their audience on a deeper level. We live in a visual world and now it’s more important than ever to share amazing branding photos that make your ideal clients stop and engage with your brand. If you’re an entrepreneur authentic images will show people the story you are trying to tell, and help them personally connect with you. Good stories attract new followers and keep them engaged. I’d love to help you tell your personal brand stories!

Today’s post features some images from my first personal branding session. Kirsty is “a recalibration speaker”. She provides keynotes, breakout sessions, workshops and retreats teaching team leaders about communication, leadership, mindset and stress relief. Kirsty’s all about inspiring people to be the best they can be in their chosen area of work. She helps people disrupt their old limiting belief patterns and shift them in the way that works for them best. And she does it all with her native Australian accent! Kirsty’s brand shoot was all about showcasing her playful, sparkling, bigger than life personality. We created an image library of lifestyle portraits and other content for her website and and her presentation slides for her talks and workshops. Her family is a big part of her brand story so we captured some fun family portraits as well.

If you’re ready to take your brand to the next level and upgrade your online presence with portraits that feel truly authentic to you, I’d be excited to help you with this! You can learn more about how personal brand photography could boost your business and get in touch with me here.

I have Danielle’s downtown Middleton senior session to share with you today! This shoot actually happened last year, and Danielle already graduated earlier this month, but I only now realized that I never blogged it! I loved our time wandering around and searching for the best urban backdrops. There were lots, including this bright red telephone booth! Sorry for a delay in posting your senior photos Danielle! Good luck with your art and in everything you do!

It’s been several weeks since we got back from our spring break vacation in Northern Arizona, but that trip was so epic that I thought I’d share it on the blog anyway. There is so much beauty in that area, lots of attractions to discover and stunning nature to appreciate! Hopefully this post will inspire someone to go and explore that part of the State, too.

When we travel and have enough time we love taking scenic byways instead of freeways. Route 66 was an easy choice for us.  We didn’t know what to expect on the way and the first amazing nostalgic stop on the road was Hackberry General Store . The store itself looks like a building held up by faith and rusty nails but it it’s actually one of the highway’s most famous roadside gems.

A little further down the road was Seligman, AR. The entire town is dedicated to a bygone era and is full of retro shops, diners, and motels.

Oatman, AZ was another totally unexpected surprise that we stumbled upon driving on Route 66. It’s an authentic western Ghost Town that refuses to die and another one of most timeless and iconic stops. This charming little town is famous not only because it’s on Main Street USA Historic Route 66 but also because it’s overrun by wild burros. They’re descendants of the burros that worked in nearby mines but now are considered free residents of Oatman.

How cute are these burros shopping for t-shirts? 🙂

Flagstaff, AZ was our base camp for a few days and we did day trips to explore the area. Walnut Canyon National Monument has interesting geological formation and is famous for ancient cliff dwellings. Can you see tiny “windows” in the middle of the cliff?

Wupatki National Monument is an ancient pueblo. I was surprised how huge and well preserved the ruins are. They reminded me of a medieval castle from Europe.

A narrow and winding loop road connects Wupatki with Sunset Crater Volcano. It was a beautiful drive and I’m sure there are great hiking opportunities around the crater but we we got there quite late and didn’t have enough daylight to start exploring on foot.

Grand Canyon was another National Park on our agenda. Spring break season is one of the busiest times there and we were not prepared for the hoards of tourists we encountered. It took us an hour and a half to drive the last mile to the park entrance and then about another hour to find a parking place. The lines to the shuttles were almost as long as a line to the entrance so as a result we didn’t have as much time to explore as we planned for. Fortunately we were able to find some solitude a little further from Grand Canyon Village to admire the majestic views in peace and and do some hiking along the rim trail. The scenery was of course breathtaking…

And even though we were stuck in park traffic (without any views) and missed the best golden hour light  – I’m happy I got a chance to take this one (and only!) photo just before the sunset.

Sedona, AZ was our next destination on the trip. I’ve heard so much about this town and was really looking forward to explore it. We started with a jeep tour to orient ourselves better in the area. Our guide shared a lot of insider hiking tips with us which helped us avoid the biggest tourist crowds that flood the town in spring. There is definitely some special energy around Sedona and I loved absorbing it in several energy vortex locations that we visited.

“Spaceship” clouds over Sedona’s red rocks…

From Sedona we drove to Death Valley National Park. This is the largest, hottest, lowest and driest park in US and we able to experience all these adjectives in one day! We only explored the east part of the park, but it gave us a good idea of its magnificence.

We were surprised to find out that there are slot canyons in Death Valley and decided to brave the scorching heat to see them. They were interesting but nothing like the amazing slot canyons we’ve seen in Grand Staircase Escalante so after seeing one we were ready to go back to the car to cool down.

We were flying out from Las Vegas and “the best hike ever” (according to my daughter, but I’m ready to agree on that) happened on the very last day of our trip. I read about Goldstrike Hot Springs trail online and the reviews were so inspiring that we decided to check it out for ourselves. The trail head is near Hoover Dam on the other side of the freeway. The hike starts easy but then gets quite strenuous as you have to climb over huge boulders in a canyon and even use ropes several times to maneuver down large rocks. But the effort is totally worth it because at the end there are several beautiful hot pools and small waterfalls feeding into the cool Colorado River. The hike back was a little more challenging as we were wet, tired and hungry but at the same time super happy after our adventure!

Thanks for getting this far! I hope you enjoyed the photos from our (mostly 🙂 Northern Arizona trip. Feel free to ask if you have any questions about locations we visited, I’m happy to share more.

Last weekend was quite magical! All the stars aligned beautifully and I was able to attend an amazing live event organized by John Burgos and Sara Landon, with Dee Wallace as a special guest. Great Awakenings event was a fun, joyful, thought provoking, inspiring, emotional and empowering and I got a chance to document it all in Los Angeles, CA. It’ll take me a while to absorb all I learned from this workshop and process all the awesomeness that happened at so many levels. I loved having the opportunity to meet in person and listen to the wisdom of some of my most favorite thought leaders and teachers. I connected with others who love exploring inner worlds and feel like I made a lot of new, close friends. The whole event was magical, moving, delightful, informative. There were lots of insights, laughs and tears shed, tons of expansion, all sooooooo good! It’s challenging to put into words all that we experienced so I’ll just leave you with the photos which I hope reflect well all the emotions of this amazing day. Enjoy!
