This year I was asked not just once, but a few times, to do professional portraits! I can’t recall a time before this that I’ve been asked for that service but I’m so glad those opportunities are coming my way because I love that kind of work! I do a pile of portraits for the Madison magazines I freelance for so I truly am probably even more seasoned in portraiture than I am in anything else. And boy am I seasoned in everything else!
Almost everyone that comes my way either seeking out the portraits themselves or they’re being obliged to take a portrait for one of my magazines says, “I don’t like having my picture taken,” or something along those lines. I like to think that after a session with me, you’d like getting your picture taken! I actually love getting my picture taken because I always pay a professional I love and trust. We have some amazing family photos as a result. So, if you think you don’t like getting your picture taken but need and want family photos, a professional portrait or anything, I think I’m your girl! I love working hard at making my clients comfortable in front of the camera, so much so they often forget they’re actually getting their picture taken and not just hanging out with me. Totally not trying to brag or anything, I simply find joy in making you relax in front of the camera.
Anyways, I loved taking these pictures with Annette. We had so much fun!
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!
