We've photographed countless couples & families over the past 8 years, but one thing is certain: our clients want beautiful + timeless photos they can cherish forever - that tells the true story of who they are together.

For us, it has always been about telling your story in a way that is authentic, timeless, & classic - so your photos never go out of style.

From the first kiss as married couple to the tiniest newborn toes, we believe that the story of you not only includes the big moments, but the tiniest little ones too.

telling the big picture with the little moments

we're all about

Let's tell your story.

what you can expect when working with us

Contact me by clicking on the "Contact" button up in the main menu!  We take a limited number of clients each year so we can focus our best on you!

I will email you back within 3 business days to learn more about you, your business, and/or your family!  Giving me the juicy details helps me make your session that much more personal!

Once booked, we will work out alllll the details together. Booking a branding session?  We'll talk all about your business goals and what you envision for your photos!

Once all of the session details are set, we'll stay in touch to talk about outfits, ordering albums, and any other needs that come up!

Sessions with me are relaxed! We get all of the necessary poses, but aim to have lots of fun and candid moments enfold throughout!

Once our session is over, I'll be taking precious care of your images and then send them to you on your own personal website! From here, you can download, print & order albums! 

how this works

run down

margherita pizza. stosch. fresh plants & flowers. warm cookies. filling other peoples' bellies. exceeding expectations. making you feel gorgeous + natural in front of my camera.  ---> these are all things that bring me joy and make my heart sing!

I am multi-passionate in photography, home & hosting, and just food in general.  But the one thing they all have in common is my passion for serving others - making each person feel loved, important, and cared for is my goal.  My passions started early - I have boxes and boxes of double-printed photos from disposable cameras.  Yikes.  

My work has been featured in places like the Knot, and Zola.  I also had the honor of receiving the "Best of Mason City: Photographer" in 2019!  But the greatest honor is seeing your photos printed up on your walls!

Meet Stosch! We are a husband and wife team…in every aspect of our lives!

Not only is Stosch my second shooter (and amazing do-it-all master) for each wedding, but he is also my support for anything and everything. While I spend hours editing, he will have the dishes washed, the laundry done, the house clean, supper cooked, the lawn groomed, the cars washed…you get the point.

He is my best friend, my greatest love, the best father to our daughter, and my biggest blessing. He makes crying babies laugh, scorching heat turn into cooling shade, and climbs the highest mountain to help me achieve the perfect photo. There are times I wish I had a 3rd shooter so I could have pictures of him doing his magic behind me, making that crying baby laugh. Now THAT would be a great photo. I guarantee you are going to love him (almost) as much as I love him! 😉

1. What's the difference between headshots and a branding session?  GREAT question.  I DO take headshots during your branding session, but I don't use those stuffy old backdrops.  For the most part, I use the location you use to run your business, but we also can go to whatever location you think represents you and your business well.  A branding session ALSO includes an array of images that showcase you doing your thing, any products you offer, and some other photos sprinkled in that help you beef up your story on social media, your website, and anywhere else you so choose.

2. What can I expect to invest?  My packages start at $1000.  You can choose to include some bonus add-ons to make your life easy-breezy or leave your package as-is.

3.  How many photos will I receive?  Each package includes a set number of photos, the smallest being 30 photos.  Your gallery will most likely include 100+ images, though, and you can choose to purchase as many of those photos as you'd like.

4.  I don't know exactly what I want, but know I need some branding photos. Will you help me?  YES! As a small business owner, you may not know exactly what you're looking for right at this moment, but we will talk about the vision for you business, how you'd like to grow, how you think you'd like to use your images, and figure out a plan together!  

5. I'm constantly adding on products or services, what happens when I need more photos?  You can always book another brand session, but I also offer a shortie add-on package for my previous brand session peeps just for that 1 or 2 thing that needs to be added to your website! 



I am one of those gals that doesn't really like being in front of the camera, but Juliana not only made me feel comfortable, but she really captured what the vibe what my work is all about. If you need amazing branding photography - give her a call!!
