Hello and Welcome! I’m Trista! I specialize in families, maternity, newborn, high school seniors as well as engagement and many milestones along the way here in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
I have 2 children, my son Alex attends UW Madison majoring in Physics and my daughter, Aaliyah is 11 and starting to hit those lovely pre-teen years. Never a dull moment!
I started learning photography at the age of 14 while working with my grandmother and aunt taking old time portraits in Wisconsin Dells. Although I love digital photography and all the flexibility it offers, I am grateful for that experience processing negatives in a dark room. Yes, that ages me a bit. Haha
I started my business out of my home and then moved into my first little studio downtown Green Bay. I quickly grew out of that space and landed my current studio in Howard, I have been here for 6 years. My studio offers a wide variety of props, wraps, headbands and such to give our sessions variety. I am always adding new backdrops and props to my collection. I offer packages for new families to capture the first year milestones. In addition, I offer quick 'mini' sessions throughout the year.
During the summer and fall months I spend the majority of my time on location. My studio is located conveniently between two very popular outdoor locations, Pamperin Park and Green Bay Botanical Gardens. Although I do love to find new locations and venture out to many other local areas.
I know how important every session is, whether it’s a brand new baby, a graduating senior, or those fun moments between with your family. I enjoy seeing my clients over and over again and watching their littles grow. When they hit that age and look forward to coming to see me and even hug me on the way out. Gosh-That is the biggest reward! I am blessed to have started and grown my business with the help of my client’s kind words and referrals.
I have experienced the box store photography and I know how important it is to have a photographer that listens to your hopes and strives to build a relationship with you and your family to capture memories that you will cherish forever. It is very important to me that my clients to feel comfy and not like they are at a mall studio where they are rushed or treated like a dime a dozen…I’ve had those experiences. It’s the very last thing I want you to feel while you have trusted me as your photographer.
