Designs in Bloom Photography & Design | About

Photography: My passion for photography really developed when I had my daughter in 2005.  There is nothing more precious than capturing a child's true personality in a photograph. I believe natural light creates beautiful photographs that reflect an individual's true self.  My love has expanded into all forms of portrait photography.  From family sessions, senior portraits, engagements and weddings I have packages that accommodate all stages of life.  I strive to make my photo shoots light hearted and fun.  Having your picture taken should not be stressful.  My main goal is to have you come away from our session with a smile and a feeling that we got some great shots!  

Wedding Photography: Weddings may just be one of my favorite things to photograph!  There is nothing quite like being up close as a groom sees his bride for the first time or the moments when they get lost in their own little world as husband and wife.  Some of the best photographs I capture are when the bride and groom completely forget I am there and just get lost in their love for each other.   I still find myself getting choked up.  I am a firm believer that your wedding photos should be fun and not add stress to your day.  It should be a time that you, your family and wedding party enjoy each other's company and maybe even get a little goofy!   


Every wedding is truly magical and unique to each couple.  Therefore I have different packages available to meet your needs.  Once you book with me we will set up a consultation to talk about your day and exactly what you want from me as your wedding photographer.  Let me take the stress of capturing the special moments of the biggest day of your life away from you.         


Interior Design: Interior Design was my first passion in life.  As a graduate from the UW-Stout design program, I have worked in this field since 2000.  I love how tactile the design world can be.  Textures, patterns and colors can add so much to your environment.  Even the right space planning can have such a huge affect on a room.  I have experience in both residential and commercial design.  Visualizing a space and what the end result will be is something that comes naturally to me.  I love seeing how my design plan comes together in the end to be something that is real.  Turning someone's house into a space that functions for their unique family while making them feel at home is a challenge I am always up for.  As a mom of three I get what it means to have your home function well for you, but I also feel like it should be a reflection of you.  I offer my design consultation for an hourly charge.
