Family Pics Are In Full Swing…

“The days are long, but the years will fly right by.”

These days, this has never felt more true!
We’ve all been spending a lot more time with family and here we are, already in mid June! With Father’s Day just around the corner, we are wishing you all a great weekend and a fantastic Summer!


Sports / Dance Mini Sessions

We know many of you are missing out on your Summer sports activities and we want to offer you a photo opp dispite these unusual circumstances.
We will be setting aside some times to photograph any sports/dance kids that were unable to participate in their sports/dance programs. We will be offering the same ‘event” pricing that we always offer to organizations.
Bring in your costumes/uniforms or make up their own favorite themed outfit. Gather up your favorite activity gear and get creative!
Contact the studio for full details on these dance/sports mini sessions and to schedule your appointment. 920.739.3249

The Virtual Business Card!

In a world where everything is becoming virtual, we’ve adapted our personal branding portrait sessions and put our twist on the idea of the traditional business card. Check out our “virtual business card” and ask about adding it to your next photo session!

Add it to your photo session for just $25 or use an existing design you have for just $35! Talk to us about your options!  🙂



Our client’s comfort and safety are of the utmost importance to us and we have devised a detailed plan moving forward into our ‘new normal’.

The studio will remain on limited operating hours and by appointment only until June 1st. As we enter into these unknown days ahead, we have a comprehensive list of  new changes that have been implemented and additional sanitation practices that have been put into place. We are doing our very best to keep everyone safe and healthy in 2020 and always!

We look forward to seeing you all soon (from behind our mask, haha)!  Stay safe everyone! 🙂

Wishing you had a fab pic to post to your Instagram? We got you covered!

Additional images and prints can be purchased from our events collection (reduced pricing). Are you also a graduating senior?… Bring along your cap & gown! Limited sessions available… Call now! 920-739-3249



Effective tomorrow morning, we will be back in the studio on LIMITED hours (by appointment only)!

Given Gov. Evers new lightened restrictions, small businesses are allowed to reopen with 5 or less people at a time. YAY!


We are going to limit our hours as we get back into the swing of things, so we ask that you contact us in advance if you plan to stop in for a pick up etc. We will be taking appointments for photo sessions, orders and pick ups, to limit the number of people and allow us adequate time to disinfect between clients. We will continue to wear masks as we work and encourage you to do the same. We ask that if you are not coming for a photo session, that you refrain from bringing your little ones with you. Are are taking every precaution to ensure the safety of our clients and staff.

We are excited to be back in action and can’t wait to see your smiling eyes (eyes, because your smiles will be covered by masks, haha)!

And thank you of course to Laura Taylor Artist and @annmewshaw for sharing your talents with us all. It was a great event and we can’t wait to share our donations with these worthy causes!
