A winter engagement session in La Crosse WI

These two were so fun. The young little lady that joined was sure to throw snow at us the entire time to make it look like a “snow globe”. I had so much fun I honestly forgot it was only 20 degrees outside! I can’t wait for their September wedding next fall. Here are a few from Bridgette + Nick’s engagement shoot! Enjoy!

Flat Lay Adventure for Local Businesses

Since I opened my photography business, I realized I quickly developed an interest for adventurous couples and families who seek a photo session in the great outdoors.

With that said... over time I have also found that I enjoy setting up creative scenes to portray a story of an item or specific product. In comes the words "flat lay". Two words I had no idea what they meant six months ago. Well, I am happy to say... with some thought and contemplation. I am now adding flat lays for local businesses to my niche. 

Flat lays provide businesses timeless curated photographs that allow the consumers to see a specific product in context. The context portrays a scene or story that is visual and pleasing to the eye. Flat lay photographs are perfect to establish content for businesses to advertise and use on their social media platforms. 

I enjoy setting up, creating, designing, and capturing the essence of a product in a flat lay. 

Shown in the photos below is the work of @poppy and hazel designs (graphic design) within a flat lay I created. The mood the business wanted to portray was "moody" yet "elegant". The colors chosen give a darker feel, yet pops of pink floral to lighten the tone and provide fresh/crisp/elegance.
