These two have been BFFs forever! We did this fun best friends teen photo session at the 2018 Fond du Lac County Fair on Saturday. They braved the crowds, the awkward stares, a few photo-bombers, and getting cotton candy stuck in their hair due to the wind. (I even got shortchanged by the carnival worker selling […]

Tanner is a kid I’ve been photographing since 2012. His senior portrait session was bittersweet, as it would be the last session due to his family’s move across the country! The rain and cloudy skies gave us some dramatic lighting at Lakeside Park in Fond du Lac. We got a few photos of Tanner with […]

I photographed Parker’s older brother a few years ago, and I’m always excited to be chosen to photograph siblings in the same family. We had a nice sunny evening for his session, which took place near the UW-Fond du Lac campus.

A professional headshot session differs quite a bit from an outdoor portrait session. Headshots are traditionally done using studio lighting against a backdrop, and thus, the details will be more noticeable. A headshot session is typically a formal affair; meaning, you will want to elevate your style from your everyday or casual look. Consider where […]

This tutorial will show you how to create a fun “pop-art” style photo. Adobe Photoshop CC and Adobe Lightroom Classic were used. (Older version of software will still work, but the screenshots may not match.)   Step 1: Take a photo against a solid color backdrop. To give the right effect, studio lighting is preferred. […]

The “photographer’s eye” isn’t something that can be taught. I believe this is something that creative people are born with. For as long as I can remember, I have always been able to see beauty peeking out from something that the average person might see as ugly or uninteresting. Sometimes I look at a location […]

Showing “then vs. now” photos is a little scary. As every photographer does, especially within the first few years, I grew… A LOT. I’ve vastly improved my skills in both shooting and editing, and have refined my style. I like to show my progress to encourage other photographers that it is possible to improve with […]
