Janesville Family Photography
Bentz Family 2017 // Janesville, WI
I love when lives intersect in more than one way. First, this awesome family showed up in my life as a group of fast and easy friends. After we moved, whenever at church I would search for Linda – she became my security blanket of sorts as I slowly worked my way to meeting more people. Linda has been at every one of my nieces and nephew’s births, she was the doula at my first birth, the midwife at my second, and as easy as a friend as they come. Mark has painted walls around our house and boy is he good at it!
I loved getting to use their beautiful home and property for these photos. We did all kinds of fun things for this shoot: the more usual family portraits, more fun (candid) family portraits, business portraits for several family members, and some couple photo ops!
Thanks for choosing me to take these pictures! It was an honor! It was a blast!
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 two spunky and sweet baby girls (see more of Maisy HERE or Penny HERE), one furry friend (see more of her 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.
My primary photographic endeavors are weddings, senior portraits, boudoir, newborns, birth, and family photography (especially in the fall). 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. My work is also featured in Madison Magazine, in publications at the Madison Children’s Museum, Main Street Hub, Tough Mudder Rockford and in every issue of BRAVA Magazine; I’ve had the privilege of being on the cover several times now!
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 senior portraits photographer, Madison wedding photographer, Janesville wedding photographer, Madison boudoir photographer, and Janesville family photographer and any place that my camera will take me. I am available for travel worldwide as your destination wedding photographer!
