Let me first start by coming clean and just saying, I’m obsessed with jumpsuits and shoes. I will wear a jumpsuit over just about any article of clothing. I love a great hand crafted cocktail when I go out. And…Risqué sparkling wine when it's dessert time.
I’ve been photographing weddings for 10 years and have a boutique boudoir studio in downtown Neenah. I love helping other entrepreneurs and giving back to my community through special projects and volunteer work. I'm a Veteran, Mother, Wife and Entrepreneur. Stanley is my lil man. Family is everything to me.
Anyone that knows me at all knows my obsession with shoes and jumpsuits. I love choosing just one thing to wear and shoes...always fit!
SHOES + JUMPSUITS
My world changed when I met my husband, and then it exploded when my son arrived. They are my whole world and my whole heart.

A decade into my work as a photographer and it never gets old. I think that's how I know I will always want to document moments with my camera.
My husband and I have both been twice and cannot get enough of it. From the epic views and freeing feeling of just being just a magical place...gosh...I cannot even explain it. If I could, I'd build a home right at the edge of a fjord and retire out there!!

'fraid not my friend
One would think so as some of my absolute favorite things come from London. Okay...maybe not "from" London, but I love High Tea and Afternoon Tea and only think of London when I think of that. Plus, Jimmy Choo....FAVORITE shoe designer and Burberry. Both in London!
'fraid not my friend
As I was getting ready to board a plane to Thailand...my father fell ill and I made the quick decision to forego my plane at the terminal and rush home. Luckily...I did. My father passed only a week after that. I will always remember Thailand for this and will look forward to seeing it someday in memory of him.
So....my husband is a huge fan or "Always Sunny in Philadelphia". In one of the episodes, they go to find a "junkyard" dog and end up with a cat that supposedly born in a puddle of gasoline...making him "indestructible". Hence, on the show, they named him Agent Jack Bauer and so did we:) But our Stanley, calls him "KIT"...short for Kitty.

So...I actually LOVE all of them. The Office I can watch on repeat over and over again. Game of Thrones...Arya Stark?! Favorite person on TV ever! Supernatural -- guilty pleasure, lol. And then, Breaking Bad? I had a love/hate relationship with Breaking Bad, but ultimately, I loved the show and am actually pleased with how it ended.

I wish I could give Colleen 10 stars because 5 does not do it justice! She was absolutely amazing and truly so very talented in what she does.
Let me tell you.. this woman lives for her work! She did our engagement photos and they were PHENOMENAL! We are still gushing over them.. and my goodness you should see our beautiful wedding photos...we just got them back last week and I am the HAPPIEST bride you will ever meet!!! SUCH AN AMAZING JOB!!!
Colleen's work is unparalleled. She has SUCH an amazing vision and executes perfectly each and every time. She is SPECTACULAR!!! Can't wait to have her photograph other moments in our life.
Colleen photographed our wedding on Labor Day weekend this year and let me just say it was AMAZING!! The amount of work she did with me and responded to me before the wedding was a lifesaver and put my mind at ease - she was kind of like a partial wedding planner with me!! The wedding day was perfect with all the poses, the wedding party pics, and just the way she made us feel especially when she and her associate were doing alone shots of us. We were able to get all the photos we wanted and everything turned out breathtaking! I have been recommending her ever since our wedding!! With Colleen you get amazing quality and organization which is worth every last penny!! Colleen rocked every moment of our wedding!!
Colleen shot our engagement photos and wedding photos and we LOVE LOVE LOVE them all! She is not only an amazing photographer, but she is also so accommodating and patient. My now husband and I wanted snowy pictures for our engagement shots, and of course, we only had one snowy weekend all of last winter (after we had decided on this). Colleen was more than happy to come meet us right away after the snowfall and we got the most amazing wintery pictures! For our wedding, we had a very big bridal party, and an even bigger family picture. She was so great with all of the little kids, and even with a language barrier (my husband's family mostly speaks Spanish) we got amazing photos from our entire day.
