Picsy Photography bio picture
  • Welcome to Picsy Photography!

    Hello! I am so glad you decided to stop by! Photography quickly became a passion of mine from the moment I picked up my camera. I fell in love with catching my daughter experience things for the first time, snapping pictures of my niece and nephews giggling together, and capturing the perfect family moments for my best friends.

    Before I knew it, taking pictures became my happy place. And that’s when I knew, I mean I really knew, this was it…this is what I was meant to do! Picsy Photography started off as a hobby filled with love, but I am beyond thrilled that I am able to share with you what I see through my lens. I would love to be your photographer as I am tremendously passionate about capturing those precious details that might get lost through time. Feel free to get cozy, browse through the galleries, and check out the packages.

    To schedule a session please send an email to or fill out the contact form. I can’t wait to learn your sweet story and create memories you’ll treasure forever!


I have a story to share…
Not an easy one to put into words but I’m going to do my best without being a sappy mess.
I reconnected with a friend from back home when I found out he had my nephew in his 5th grade class this year.
We became friends on Facebook and I soon learned that the love of his life is going through something no one should ever have to endure.

That awful word that takes way too many precious lives.

I quickly got caught up on his dear Jenny’s Caring Bridge site to learn that she is fighting breast cancer, they have two gorgeous girls, and need all the support and positive prayers to get them through this difficult time.  Right away I knew I wanted to do something special for this family.  I’ve never met Jenny, but I wanted to do something…anything to put a smile on their faces.
I knew I couldn’t donate a ton of money to help, but I could give memories through pictures that they can hold onto forever.
Right away I contacted Brian with my idea to donate a Picsy session, and he was so very grateful.  I couldn’t wait to meet his family.
We found a date right after her 6th and final chemo treatment.  What a perfect way to celebrate this brave mama!

A few weeks before their family session, I received a package in the mail from my MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) membership with a tiny little envelope that contained a key from The Giving Key.   The Giving Keys exist to employ those transitioning out of homelessness to make jewelry out of re-purposed keys that get sold and shared around the world.  Each key is unique and carries a simple word that holds a powerful, personal message.  When the wearer of the key encounters someone else who needs the message on the key, they give it away and shares their story.   My key was branded with the word “courage,” and I couldn’t think of anyone more deserving of this key than Jenny, so I decided to give it to her at the end of our session.

Courage is the state or quality of mind or spirit that enables one to face danger, fear, or pain with self-possession, confidence and bravery.

Just look at how brave and courageous this beautiful mama is…


Jenny has come so very far, but still has a long journey ahead.
She will need your positive thoughts and cheering as she waits for the date of a double mastectomy that will then be followed by 6 weeks of radiation.
Jenny, take your time with this key.  Hold onto that courage.  I hope that key along with these images of your family that loves you so very much helps get you through those tough days.
Be brave, beautiful Jenny!

i tried to eat while I was reading this . . . and looking at this gorgeous mother & her family . . . but, I couldn’t swallow past the lump in my throat! What an absolutely wonderful gift you have given them!

wisco sweet spots

It’s no secret I love exploring and finding new locations for my sessions.
I have now trained my hubby to know exactly what I’m looking for in a location.  He’s the best!
We love hitting the road together finding those sweet spots that capture beautiful light.
Wisconsin certainly has a lot of gorgeous land to offer, and I get so excited to book sessions while we visit.

One of my Wisco sessions from this past weekend was with a family that I hold very close to my heart.  I was lucky to be their nanny while in college, and it was the best job ever.  They made me feel so loved and a part of their family.  I will always be thankful for all that I learned from them, and no doubt that experience has helped shaped me to be the mom I am today to my own girls.
We had so much fun at their session, and I can’t wait to share these heart warming memories with you.


I love you, Sullivan family.



I’ve been capturing this beautiful family every year since I first started Picsy Photography, which basically means I am the luckiest photographer ever!  Not only have they put up with me learning and growing from year to year, but they are so much FUN to photograph.
I absolutely love when I can capture a family’s true connections, and I think we really nailed it this time.

Beautiful, beautiful fun-loving connections.


…and I know you are all wondering where the darling girls’ dresses are from.
Mom! Yup, their mom designed and made these perfectly beautiful dresses for her baby girls.
Just beautiful.
