As an award-winning portrait artist, I dedicate my time to creating emotive family photographs near my studio in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. Whether I'm capturing family photos among the gorgeous environments of the upper Midwest, documenting the beauty of motherhood in a whole new way, or preserving the enchantment of new life, I am inspired by the families who trust me to bring their stories to life.

INVESTEMENT

Whether reserving for a studio or on-location session, your session fee is due at the time of booking to secure your place on my calendar. Please note that this fee is a session fee only, including our consultation, session together, ordering session, as well as my time and talent. Additional cost applies, as digital images and products are sold separately.

If you are interested in maternity and newborn photography, because the ideal timeframes for these sessions are short, you should contact me as early as possible to confirm my availability. My popular Bellies to Babies Plan may be the perfect fit for you — ask me about the details and perks!

A couple of things to note...

SESSION

Before your portrait session, we’ll have a short phone call to discuss an in-person consultation. We’ll chat about your goals for your session, and how you envision using and displaying your images.

First Consultation

Next, we’ll meet, and design your session. If you are a maternity and newborn client, this is when you’ll try on the beautiful gowns available to you to wear during your session. We’ll browse my newborn prop library, including fabrics, outfits, hair pretties, knits, and wraps. We’ll also review color preferences and selections.

If your portrait session will be outdoors, we’ll choose a location for your session. I have a list of suggested locations, or, if you have a specific location in mind, I’d love to see if it will be a good fit for your portraits.

Our design consultation allows me to project your portraits for viewing so you can truly see them showcased. I’ll present you with the many and varied opportunities you have for displaying your images, through my exclusive product line. I want you to see exactly what your images will look like in your home, in specific products, and in your life! Through this time together you’ll be confident in your purchasing decisions.

The most emotional and exciting time of your portrait experience … Seeing your images!

Your portraits will be displayed with artistry, in professional designs, and will last a lifetime or more.

"I truly have a passion and creative desire to create incredible art for families. Every family deserves documentation of themselves, their children and relationships in the season that they are in now.

I like to think of my products as tangible memories you’ll be able to see and even feel, time after time."

ALBUMs

Handmade in Italy, my Heirloom Album is the most versatile album. Transform it into a framelike display with its transparent lid. Layflat binding allows you to view a panoramic page without seeing a separation in the seam. The Heirloom Album can accommodate up to sixty pages; twenty are included.

01

Boasting all the features of my Heirloom Album, your baby book will be perfectly coordinated to your taste. With lay-flat pages that create a full, sensory experience, the Baby Book can accommodate up to forty pages; twenty are included. A custom foil overprint may be included on the cover or box, elevating and perfectly completing your Baby Book.

02

A favored selection of my Baby Plan clients, Legacy Albums are designed to bind together the stages of your child from belly to baby: maternity, newborn, and first year. Made in Italy with soft and close-fitting suede, and durable wood fiber, Legacy Albums can accommodate up to twelve slip-in mats.

03

The innovative yet classic design of the Memory Box transforms it into a tabletop frame when vertical. Cherished by Baby Plan clients, each box is expertly handmade in Italy, to exact specifications. This one-of-a-kind product is simply luxurious. An optional false bottom gives you the ability to add to your collection through future portrait sessions. Here you may also store small keepsakes from your baby’s first year such as hospital bands, footprints, and your baby’s hospital hat and bassinet nametag.

04

Your custom framed artwork includes an archival luster mounted print matted at two or three inches, or double matted. I create these pieces specifically for the dimensions of your walls. Your one-of-a-kind art is completed by museum quality glass.

Perhaps the most popular choice for wall art. Your vibrantly colored image will be printed by artisans in Italy onto superior quality cotton canvas, free of staples or unsightly mounting like other canvas panels. My canvases are solid in construction, so there will be no warping over time. A UV soft-touch coating is also applied to the canvases, to avoid markings. All-around perfection.

Wall art is custom framed by me, in my studio. Classic and refined, framed art provides you with a timeless solution for displaying your fine art images. My exquisite frames are high in craftsmanship and quality. I offer a variety of styles, from modern to traditional moulding options. Together we’ll design the perfect frames for your prints and enhance the magic of your images. Your gallery quality art arrives ready-to-hang.

 “I’m so happy we went with Megan for our newborn photos! She is so patient, kind and helpful during the entire process. She has amazing attention to detail & always has the safety of your baby in the forefront of her mind during your session. We just got our photos back and I’m absolutely obsessed with them. I would highly recommend her to anyone!”

"...amazing attention to detail!"

— MEGAN

 “Our experience with Megan was above and beyond anything we had expected or hoped for. We started with a lifestyle maternity shoot at our home, and the pictures truly captured the love my husband and I felt for each other and this beautiful bump in my belly. When Ethan was born, Megan came to the hospital and again captured some of the first beautiful moments of our family’s life together. During our newborn session in her studio, we were in awe of her patience with our son and getting the perfect shot. We teared up multiple times. These were beyond anything we envisioned. We're grateful to have found such a wonderful artist who not only loves what she does, but also truly loves and appreciates the little beings she works with.”

"Megan took the necessary amount of time to capture beautiful photos; I did not feel rushed and was given time to take breaks when needed. I also liked that Megan throughout the shoot showed me some of the pictures. Overall Megan is very professional, accommodating and nice to work with."
