You deserve the best!

We understand you have invested your precious time and unconditional love into your family. We believe the announcement of a new baby, bonding of siblings and family reunion are all iconic events that call for Professional Pictures.

Our Signature Family Collections start at $399. Once you clarify your needs we will structure a collection thats right for you. We recommend a relaxed meet & greet at our Appleton Boutique to kick things off.



You’re worth it!

Many parents place value on toys (kids grow tired of quickly) and clothing  (kids grow out of quickly) plus dance classes or sports. Family photos are priceless and will be passed down to future generations!

You’re important to us!

We are honored to be part of your maternity, new born and family photo sessions and have your best interest in mind. Our portfolio is a compilation of all of the families that have allowed us to come into their lives…YOU are our inspiration!  As professional full time artists we promise to tell your families story through the view of our lens. We strive to create art and an extraordinary experience for your family!

You can do this!

 From the moment your baby turns ONE you will only have 12 summers to spend with them until they are a teenager and they are off with their friends. {12 summers, 12 family trips, 12 birthday parties etc.}  Family time is precious and we want to capture those moments!

 Laughter is the best medicine

We offer you quality time with your family as a break in your hectic, daily routine. (Bring a cooler & blanket and make a picnic out of it)  As seasoned artists provide perfect lighting, angles and confidence boosting direction to guarantee a fantastic session! (Jokes and smiles included)

Love Notes

“Heidi and Gerry have photographed our family for over 10 years and we would never go to anyone else. We met them at a wedding show 15 years ago and once we saw their work it was love at first sight!  Every year they surprise us with new breathtaking locations and stunning art work! They really are a dream team!

Thank you for your photo magic!  ~ Erin & family

Following your session, we select the best images for retouching. We devote time to carefully compare 100’s of images from your session to select the best ones from each concept — based on facial expressions, posing, lighting, sharpness, and overall appeal. These final images are each individually processed and enhanced into a true work of art.
