Capturing life as it happens


A mini documentary of your life.


Photos and Videos for your Business Needs


I am a photographer and videographer in Baraboo, Wisconsin.  My main focus is documenting the human experience through connection, creativity and beauty.

Thanks for stopping by my site.  For over 10 years I have been photographing little moments and big moments in people’s lives.  This year, I have opened a studio in Baraboo, Wisconsin. I am looking forward to seeing what the rest of 2018 brings!

When time allows, my husband and I work as a photography team.  If you are looking to book a wedding, you will be almost guaranteed that we will be working together.  Some specific portraiture requires the two of us as well.

Stephanie helped me surprise my girlfriend with a proposal at Devil’s Lake this October. She was great to work with and took some amazing pictures of our engagement!

Steph did an absolutely amazing job capturing our family! She made us feel extremely comfortable and was so good with the kids! I’m totally obsessed with the photos and will hopefully be making this a yearly event with Steph!!! Thank you so much


Steph did an amazing job on our photos. We had never had a professional photographer take our photos before so we had no idea how the process went. Steph recommended the time and place for the best photos for us.She was very professional and definitely knowledgeable on how to achieve the best photos for us. She even captured moments we weren’t even aware of! We will definitely be using her for any of our future work and encourage anyone who wants photos done to have them done by her! GREAT JOB!!!
