I love new clients. What I love more: repeat clients. What I love even more: repeat clients that keep repeating and it’s obvious I’ve become their go to for photography needs. Why is it my favorite? Two reasons: one, it’s the highest compliment I can be given; two, we only get more comfortable with each other and it shows in their images!
This is the third time I’ve photographed for this sweet family. I’ve loved each and every shoot so much! This one I loved for obvious reasons, I got to hang out with a sweet, tiny baby! And for not so obvious reasons, I have and always will adore taking pictures of newborns. It’s a blend of portrait and “product” photography that I love. “Product” sounds odd I’m sure but when doing product photography I situate the objects just perfectly and they stay… it’s the same when doing a newborn shoot! My primary goal as a photographer is to get these sweet babies so gosh darn comfortable that they become putty in my hands ;)
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. I am available for travel worldwide as your destination wedding photographer!
