Emrie first started coming to my house when she was just 2 months old. I’m her part time day care provider! As a baby she was the easiest little peanut, fell asleep happily on her own, took long naps, and downed her bottles. As a bigger baby she gulped down her baby food faster than I could spoon it, still feel asleep happily by herself and took long naps. As a toddler she’s nearly always goofy and loves playing by herself but is also in love with playing with Penny. It’s such an honor and joy having littles like her in my home every day, I love seeing what makes them tick in such raw stages and I love getting to steer good manners, kindness, and friendships, between my kids and our friends that come every day.
It’s been an honor to also come alongside Emrie and her parents to take her pictures! As you can imagine, photo sessions with my day care kids always are amazing because we know each other so well. The shoots are very personal and the kids start out comfortable so we’re able to spend all the shoot time taking great pictures – no warm up necessary.
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!

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.
