From the first meeting at her design consultation I could see that Bethany has such a unique and awesome style! I love how she brought that to her senior portrait session. When we sat down to plan her session she settled on Paradise Springs in Eagle to be the location for the big day. It has been many years since I have been here because there was a dam failure in 2015 that caused some devastating damage to this beautiful park. The pretty pond had drained and I felt it wasn’t worth the drive for the rest of what the location offers. It looks fully restored now and I love it once again!


Bethany is a senior at Kettle Moraine Perform and has BIG plans for the fall! Read on to find out. I’m so excited for her and I hope someday I can say, “I knew her when…”

One more fun fact: the photo you see above of Bethany was one of the images that I submitted for my Master of Photography degree. One of my favorite things is delivering the news to my clients that an image I photographed of them is award winning!

Bethany’s birthday was just a few days ago. Happy Birthday! I hope you had a wonderful day celebrating, Bethany!
