W E L C O M E.

Lindsey here.  Thank you SO much for checking things out! (Okay, so, to be completely honest, I really dread the “about me” page. I struggle to ‘talk’ about myself, so bear with me while I try. ) 

+ My home studio is based in Chilton, Wisconsin serving clients from all over the Fox Valley, Green Bay, Fond Du Lac, Sheboygan, Plymouth, and Milwaukee. My home studio is where I photograph children and newborns year round.  Once the weather gets nice in late spring and things are turning green, I get outside! I strictly photograph families, engagements, maternity, and seniors outdoors in natural light and organic settings during the seasonal months. 

+I am wife to Shane and mom to Haley, Alayna, and Kailyn. 

+After 14 years living in our first home and being very cramped, we are finally are building a new home! The studio will be done a few months after we get the keys to the house. Looking forward to new memories in the house and studio! 

+ My photography story started back when I purchased a nicer camera in 2010 so I could get better pictures of my children. I started posting on Facebook and people starting asking me to photograph their kiddos…then family, then weddings, etc…In 2013 I took the leap and quit my full-time job because I could not keep up with the business, family, and photography. 

+I photograph 20 weddings a year and 30 seniors. The rest of my sessions I limit per month. I have not taken new families for a few years now and 2019 will be the first year I won't be taking new children. I really just want to focus on my current families and children. With weddings come newborns. With newborns come families. It's quality, not quantity and I hope my clients appreciate this.

+ I will never do a full family session indoors because they are staged, stuck in the same backdrops, and wayyyy tooo posed. Even with a new, much bigger studio, I will not offer these indoors. I will, of course, update a family picture with a child's session and definitely get those first family pictures with a newborn in the studio. I am a natural light photographer first.
(This means I do not have any flashes or strobe lights during my outdoor sessions. If I did, I would be able to shoot any time of the day—morning, noon, and night. That would be great, right?! Not really. The golden hour –just a couple hours before sunset--is the BEST lighting for natural light tog’s like myself. I can follow my little ones and my families and get lots of candids and photo journal vs constantly chasing a light around. I only photograph family outdoors to get the best lighting for beautiful skin and have tons of room to move around and get great angles of everyone!)

+This ‘job’ is not a ‘to-do’. A photographer, like myself, with photojournalist style, MUST have emotion in order to be creative. It is a reason we are attached to you. It is a reason I appreciate you and want to continue to follow your life milestones. You only get one person to write your life journal…and that is you of course. You should only need one person to photo document your journey….allow me to try!

+Who's Violet Lace? Violet and Lacy were my maternal great-grandmothers. I relished in their historical-type names and wanted them my daughters, but my husband, unfortunately, did not. Therefore, I made it my business...my other baby! 

Thank you for checking out my site and I look forward to hearing from you!
