Hi, I'm Patricia-- a Wisconsin-based photographer, lover of natural light, and aspiring mug collector.  

A quote that I’ve come to really believe in is this: “The earth is art, the photographer is only a witness.” - Yann Arthus-Bertrand.  It’s absolutely true and I have always found myself loving to be that witness, with everything and everyone around me being my art.  Preserving special moments in time is so important and is what I am passionate about, like the joy you see on parents’ faces upon the arrival of their newborn, the mess on a one-year-old's face after digging into his/her cake, the excitement and love shared by a newly engaged couple, or the bond between grandparents and their grandkids.  It makes me so happy to be able to capture those types of intimate relationships in people’s lives.  
My style focuses on bringing out the personality in the people I photograph.  This means letting you be you, or kids be kids, and aiming to create an environment where smiles come naturally.  Each session is unique and I want to be able to work with you to make sure you get the most out of your photo session as possible.

Thanks for taking the time to check out my website and please look around at my work to learn more about my style and point-of-view from behind the camera.
