Meet Penny

I’ve started writing my birth story, I’ve started writing some other stories about parenting two girls, I’ve taken Penny’s pictures, and I’ve transitioned from wearing diapers to wearing regular pads with regular underwear.  We’ve welcomed our family and some of our best friends into our home to meet Maisy and share our birth story – most bearing the most beautiful gifts and meals.  We are feeling incredibly blessed!  Which does nothing for the leaking faucet that is my postpartum face.

Today I’m feeling energetic so I took some time to edit those newborn pictures I took of Penny!  This photographer cannot introduce her babies online any other way than by professional photos – none of those iPhone snaps will do, no matter how good looking.

Meet Penny.  She is amazing.  She sleeps better than my toddler, immediately perfected her latch and nurses like a pro, she smiles a lot and is generally simply laid back.  We predict Penny to be the calm to Maisy’s storm, the rock to her rock and roll, and the best friend that guides her to mellow fields of wildflowers.  Maisy is our wildfire goofball; Penny is our easygoing wise soul.

This site is all about my journeys as a professional photographer in Madison. But first and foremost I am Kaia. Kaia means “Earth” in Norwegian and I live up to that by tree hugging, dog loving, and nature walking.  My first word was “happy,” I still love to jump in puddles, I strive to live simply and self-sustainably, and my favorite color is yellow.  I’m married to a stunningly handsome, ridiculously talented, and intensely loving musician husband. We have a spunky baby girl (see more of her HERE), one furry friend (see more of them HERE), and we all live happily ever after in a house on a hill in the land of southern Wisconsin.

I am a photographer bent on capturing the uniqueness in life.  I strive to serve my clients lovingly, creating a series of memories they can cherish forever, and making them my forever friends.  I shoot honest photography – real people, real colors, and real life.

Weddings, senior portraits, boudoir, newborns, and family photography (especially in the fall) are my primary photographic endeavors.  I offer many gorgeous products ranging from prints, to albums, to wall art products and more, but I particularly love creating my custom designed Coffee Table Albums with my clients.

Do I sound like so much fun and you are so in love with my work?  Next, step/mouse over to my “Contact” tab and let’s get started on some great pictures!

I do the majority of my photography as a Janesville baby photographer, Madison wedding photographer, Janesville wedding photographer, Madison boudoir photographer, Janesville senior portraits photographer and any place that my camera will take me.  I am available for travel worldwide as your destination wedding photographer!
