Sally Belle Photography Senior Portraits, Wedding, & Lifestyle Photography

It's what I've always wanted to do! Photography is my passion, my creative outlet, ...and now, my vocation! I want to capture people as they truly are. Not posed to perfection, but honest, and in the moment! AND - I want the process to be fun! That's it. I mean, who isn't tired of family portraits being the most stressful day on the calendar. Kids crying...mom pulling her hair out! I've been there. I was that mom. But no more! Whether it is a unique portrait session, a local race or charity event, or the day you say "I do!" - Book a session with me and we'll have a great time! You can choose the location, or let me pick the spot for you. What will follow is an enjoyable time together capturing lasting memories! Feel free to email me with any questions you may have. I have a pricing guide available by request. Sessions bookings are typically on the weekends, however arrangements can be made during the week.

I met the Winters Family at James Buchanan's Wheatland Estate and they all just looked like the personification of Spring!! Dressed in bright pastels...they made me so happy just to look at them! :) I love this family and it was so much fun to capture them all together! (SO many cute smiling faces!) Thank you so much Winters Family!!

Ok - you all are probably going to think I'm CRAY-ZEE!!! Posting photos of a winter sport JUST as we are starting to feel the warmth of Spring the coming Summer. However - stay with me! I was privileged to shoot on the official photography team for the American Birkebeiner again this year, and because these photos needed to be released by the Birkie first, I have waited until now to post. But now it's time!!

A little explanation for you. For those who don't know, the American Birkebeiner is a 52km cross country ski race from the town of Cable, WI to the town of Hayward Wi. Anyone can participate and over 13,000 people do. People ranging from my father-in-law in his mid seventies to Olympians like Kikkan Randall and Brian Gregg! (and everyone in between!) It's an amazing event that spans three days and includes races for all ages (from littles to teens), races where dogs pull their owners on skis (called Skijor), and culminating in the big races on Saturday.

This year was even more special because Kikkan Randall, US Gold Medal Women's XC champion (along with Jesse Diggins) came to be a Birkie Ambassador AND ski the Birkie herself! What made this even more amazing is that Kikkan has been fighting a breast cancer diagnosis this past year. She met with fans, raised money for breast cancer research, was the official race starter, and raced herself. She's a wonder and it was an honor to photograph her!

Also of note was Olympian, Brian Gregg. He has skied the Birkie many times, always finishing near the very top. This year he came in second and it was a very proud moment as his wife, fellow Olympian Caitlin Gregg cheered him on holding their newborn baby girl! Caitlin herself is a FIVE TIME Birkie Champion!! Amazing people!

My hope in these images is to impart to you a sense of what the Birkie is...it's all these people coming together to celebrate this one amazing sport. It's beautiful, colorful, rugged, fun, hard-core, not for the faint of heart, invigorating, and unique. A place where all kinds of people come together to encourage each other to reach new goals and do what they might've thought they could not do. Church Bells ring to signal the elites coming in to the finish, spectators ring cowbells as skiers glide down Main Street toward their goal, children squeeze their faces through the fence to catch a glimpse of Mom or Dad being an amazing athlete, thousands of hands wrap around cups of hot cocoa, hot soup or delicious cookies, medals or pins grace the necks and chests of all who leave it all out on the snow. This is the Birkie. SKI! RUN! BIKE! LIVE! #americanbirkebeiner #ASBF #birkie #birkiefever #FIS #USSkiteam #kikkanrandall

It seems crazy that I'm taking Lauren's senior pictures already!! I have known this dear girl for the last 11 years! That means she was in 2 grade when we first met! And now look at her... grown up and gorgeous!! And ready to take on the world...starting with the Air Force Academy! That's right - she's headed to Colorado this summer and all I can say is - watch out USAF - here she comes!! Love you Lauren and can't wait to see all the places you'll go!

It's really hard to know where to start when I am writing this description. I have known Jim & Tracey since I was 12 years old! Our families were the best of friends, we went on vacations together...I spent lots of time with the Stroheckers! I've known them forever and their beautiful marriage has been an inspiration to everyone who knows them (including me)! It was indeed my honor to photograph their special celebration and vow renewal. Tracey in her always fabulous way, looked amazing in her dress and ruby red shoes!! And Jim was ever the handsome groom! So many friends and family gathered to celebrate them and of course, share HILARIOUS stories (mostly Tracey stories!!) that had the whole room in stitches!! Jim & Trace - I love you...and I loved being able to witness and document this amazing evening for you!!

T minus 2 1/2 days until we leave for our annual trip “up north“ to Hayward, Wisconsin. I will have the amazing privilege of shooting with the official photography team for the Birkie once again and I could not be more excited!!! I’ve posted here a few of my favorite images from Birkies past and at the end of the swipes you’ll see an official photo from Kikkan.com of Kikkan Randall - US Olympian!! Kikkan will be at the Birkie this year as an Olympic ambassador and will present the “Fast and Female” workshop on Sunday. Kikkan is currently battling breast cancer and the entire Birkie community is rallying to support her in that fight! #finishcancer #sportsphotographer #americanbirkebeiner #birkiefever #birkie2019

SOOOO Many exclamation points!! Because how very anticipated was this little munchkin? I think from the moment Mike and Katie got married, all of us who love them were secretly dying for the day they'd have their first little one!! And now he's here! He is totally adorable...just like Mom and Dad! I was so honored to be able to do this very special newborn lifestyle session and bring you these sweet, sweet images of Baby Isaiah. Love you Zappitellas!!

It's that time of year again...time for Bronwyn's annual portrait session!! Bronwyn and my daughter Bella are the sweetest of friends and also happen to be birthday buddies! (they both just turned 11 on December 5th!) And when I look back on the images I took of Bronwyn years back when we started this annual session, I just cannot believe how grown up she is! (I can't seen to get time to slow down at all). But I do feel very lucky to be able to capture this precious time for Bronwyn and her family!

Disclaimer - There are a bazillion images in this post!!! But scroll through and you'll see why. My sweet friend Liz hosted her annual Christmas Wreath making party & Brunch yesterday and I was the lucky girl who got to photograph it! Liz is nothing short of a genius when it comes to making things beautiful, creating memorable spaces, and in general bringing people together to enjoy life's treasures. And yesterday was ALL of that!! Liz has 2 lovely greenhouses, the first of which housed the brunch, and the second set the scene for lots of gorgeous wreath making. A beautiful group of friends, sharing mimosas, sporting adorable winter hats and making amazing memories! Thank you so much Liz for letting me share in this incredibly lovely time!

As the weather gets colder and the days get shorter, outdoor portrait sessions get fewer...but Justin braved the temps and even had some beautiful snow left over to add to the backdrop! We met at the lovely pine grove in Overlook Park and despite being cold, it was a gorgeous day!! I can't thank you enough Justin for being such a trooper! Best wishes for the remainder of your senior year...it's going to be a great one!

I have been so honored to have clients that have me capture their growing families year after year, and Senator Ryan Aument, his beautiful wife Kate, and their two ADORABLE munchkins Jack & June are just such a family! It has been so sweet to see these kiddos grow! June absolutely adores her big brother as you can plainly see from these images. And getting this bunch to snuggle for photos was a cinch...partly because they just love each other to pieces, and partly because it was pretty stinkin' cold!! Ryan...Kate... I think you know how much I adore you guys!! Thank you so much for another wonderful session!

Oh this crew!!! I just love them to pieces!! Craig and Ashley were our neighbors down the street for many years, and their oldest, Addy and our youngest, Bella became fast friends. As we got to know them, we got to know the whole extended family which included all these adorable littles!! And for the last few years I have gotten to do a "cousins" session with them! This year's session was set for an outdoor location, but the day was very blustery and cold- so we opted to take it indoors to the family's coffee shop "Javateas" at their Doneckers location. It was a great last minute change - and the kiddos even braved the temps for a few outside shots as well! We completed the session with hot cocoa for all and even snagged some adorable shots there!
