I love all kinds of photography. I'm a girl who loves variety so I look to do anything and everything I can, and I love to learn new kinds of photography. But, if I had to pick a very favorite, I would pick birth photography.
In my experience, it's the only kind of photography that is 100% unposed. No one is paying any attention to me and that's the way I LOVE it! When I set out to be a professional photographer after high school I had my heart set on photojournalism, and yet, so much of the photojournalism I could get my hands on here in the midwest while working for magazines is still a mix of posed and candid. Not so with birth. Not a second of it is posed by me. My job, is to use the light I have and the scene I have in front of me and make it look as beautiful as I see all birth to be.
Lacey's birth was two hours you guys, TWO HOURS! Is that insane or what! Talk about a sprint through birth. And then, out came a 10 pound baby! You'd think the baby would have to be a peanut coming out that fast, but nope. She was a champ and it all was so beautiful to be a part of.
Lacey, thank you for choosing me to photograph your sweet birth! You're a rockstar!
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.
