La Crosse, WI Family Documentary Photographer

Moments Matter More Than Poses

How do you want to look back on these days?

We value images that take you back in time to the best (and sometimes the most trying) moments in your life. The way that your kids laugh while they chase each other around the kitchen. The happiness on their faces as they jump on the couch even though you've told them they're not supposed to (so many times if you're like us). The joy that they get from going down the slide at the park somewhere around La Crosse for the 100th time that day.

Family documentary photography captures the natural, unscripted moments of everyday life rather than merely posing and arranging subjects who are all smiling at the camera (which we still get).

Documentary family photography is less concerned with creating a perfect image and more about capturing authentic moments that reflect our client's true personalities. As a result, we get more impactful photos because they capture the fleeting moments of our lives.

We want you to open an album 20 years from now and smile with as big of a grin as your kids had when they were doing something they shouldn't.

Life doesn't happen the way people portray it in photos on their profile

We don't dress up everyday in coordinating outfits and line up smiling

We don't always clean the house or do the dishes

We don't always play nice with our siblings

We don't always listen to what we're told by our parents

We don't always follow the rules

We take Family photos around La Crosse, wi to show how we live and love, even if it doesn't always look perfect

“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.”

— Dr. Seuss
