We’re located in Williams Bay, WI, and serve the Lake Geneva area and beyond. We love to travel, especially for love.

What are your business hours/hours of operation?

We have unique hours. We are on location a lot, but now that we have a great new studio location in Williams Bay, we do offer some drop-in consultation hours on a first come, first serve basis, if we’re not previously booked. We are in the office/studio Tuesday through Friday, but these days are often reserved for editing, office work, and our commercial and product photography clients.
Monday:  Closed
Tuesday: By Appointment
Wednesday: By Appointment
Thursday: By Appointment
Friday: By Appointment
Saturday: By Appointment
Sunday: Closed – However, we do book weddings on Sundays, and during peak seasons, outdoor portrait sessions.
As for scheduling your session, we can book during the week or on the weekend, depending on your preference and my availability. For more on this, see below.

When are you available?

We book sessions, consultations, and meetings by appointment only, and our availability fills up somewhat quickly, so try to book as soon as you know you’re interested. 🙂

Please keep in mind that summer sunsets occur later at night, so be prepared for a later evening shoot in the summer. Winter sunsets are early on, and for people who work 9-5, that means that weekends are often the best bet to catch that beautiful golden hour light that happens right before sunset. Weekends book quickly.

Remember – your session fee or a 50% retainer of your package is due upon booking in order to hold your date.

If you need to reschedule your session, please give us a call at least one week in advance or more if possible. Although we absolutely understand that life happens, our time is valuable (as is yours!), so failure to do so will result in a forfeiture of the session fee or 50% retainer. If inclement weather or illness occurs and we need to reschedule as a result, there will be no additional fee, and your session fee or 50% retainer will simply transfer to your rescheduled date.

Do you have a studio? Will you shoot on location?

Yes! We have a great little studio in Williams Bay, WI, perfect headshot sessions, cake-smash sessions, pet sessions, and small family portrait sessions. We’re located across from Geneva Lake, and Kishwauketoe Nature Conservancy, so we have plenty of gorgeous outdoor locations available right in our backyard.

We are happy to travel within a 60-minute drive of Williams Bay, WI, and beyond. For distances greater than a 60-minute drive, we do sometimes charge a travel fee. Location fees are the responsibility of clients who request said locations.

Do you offer editing and retouching?

Yep! We offer retouching, in fact, basic retouching is included in all of my portrait and headshot sessions.  My policy is to help you look your best – while maintaining the truth of who you are.

Besides having spent 7 years collectively working as a professional artist in the casino and arcade game industries, I’ve had an active career as a freelance artist – which translates to a love of creativity in my photography, solid knowledge of design, and a lot of technical skills in image processing, so rest assured, when it comes to editing, your images are in great hands.

Can you refer me to a good makeup artist for our session?

Yes, definitely. If you are booking a boudoir session, your hair AND makeup are already included in your session fee, because we work exclusively with hair and makeup artists that we trust to deliver great results and a fantastic experience. If you’re booking any other type of portraits and are interested in hair and makeup, just let Jen know. We’re happy to extend a referral or help you book.
