Even before I had children, I mentally committed to photography any and every future child once a month for the first year, every year around their birthday, along with me and Josh during our annual anniversary shoot, and plenty of moments in-between all that. I'm pleased to report that I am definitely holding up to my mental commitment.
On June 19 my Maisy girl turned 5! I don't know why by brain regressed and I find myself calling her or labeling her 3 years old on paper. Wishful thinking I guess! She's 5 in every way. She's always been beyond her years with life skills and responsibility. She's book smart and the look of her has always looked about a year her senior.
The older she gets, the more she becomes my little helper, my extra pair of hands, and my sidekick. I love her for that. I love that she gets excited about helping me on my photo sessions some day. I can totally see her being so amazing at that!
Maisy, I love you with all my heart! I'm so proud of who you are and so thankful for you. Love you baby!
Hi! I am Kaia, your portrait photographer. 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 three beautiful kids, one furry friend, and we all live happily ever after in a little house on a hill in the land of southern Wisconsin.
I am a portrait photographer (senior pictures, newborn photography, family photographer, boudoir photographer... ) and freelance photographer serving the greater Madison area. I fell in love with portrait photography in high school. I love that great portraits tell a person's story; who they are, where they've been, and what they love. I also fell in love with photojournalism in high school. Now-a-days you can catch my work in Madison Magazine, GoDaddy Social, Tough Mudder Rockford, BRAVA Magazine, and AirBnb; I’ve had the privilege of being on the cover several times now!
I strive to serve my clients lovingly, creating a series of memories you can cherish forever, and making you my forever friend. We do that by having fun! Since we want you to look like your natural, beautiful self we start with your natural poses and I direct you from there. I'm more than just your portrait photographer, I give life to your memories. During our shoot you'll be taking lots of breaks from smiling right at the camera to interact with each other and have some fun!
I do the majority of my photography as a Wisconsin portrait photographer, Janesville portrait photographer, Janesville newborn photography, Madison boudoir photographer, Janesville senior pictures, Wisconsin freelance photographer and Janesville family photography.
