Capture the Moment Photography by Kristel Stephany bio picture
  • Welcome!

    My passion is capturing the moments and memories you want to hold onto forever! I love so many things about each stage of life and therefore I choose to photograph them all! Whether you are interested in having me photograph your wedding day, your child's Senior portraits or anything in between, I will be sure to create a fun memorable experience that will leave you with photographs you will treasure forever! From posed shots to those captured in the moment, I strive to create a variety of images you will be proud to display in your home.

    I genuinely want to know who you are and what your style is and I take the time to get to know you before your session so I can be sure to create an experience that best suits you, your family, your child or your wedding day. Be sure to check out the "Meet the Photographer" page to find out more about the person behind the camera. I want to feel like we're friends before we even meet in person!

It feels like Spring is finally in the air and that has me thinking SPRING MINI SESSIONS! After the long cold winters here in WI, Spring is definitely a long awaited treasure each year.  With it comes beautiful blossoms, dandelion blowers, fresh green grass and longer days with gorgeous evening light.  Take a peek at some of my favorite photos from last year’s Spring minis, get all excited, and then contact me to book your spot for this year’s! Don’t wait!  They’ll go fast! 😉


Loved these two adorable little sisters and capturing some true special sister moments.  I loved that they brought their dog along and loved the hugs they gave me at the end of their session even more!

Mini sessions are a perfect opportunity for photos you wouldn’t necessarily need a full session for, like these two with their sports and dance outfits. It was such a perfect setting for them to have some extra fun!

This sweet little family came to me for the first time for their mini session. I just swoon over their photos!

Of course you know I like to sneak my little cuties into my sessions as well.  My mom actually asked to have photos taken with the girls last year!  Well, she looks beautiful and my littles are always more than happy to snuggle up with Gammie for some photos we will treasure always!

*Sigh* And these three!  So so precious!  I just love capturing mommas and their babies, so often moms are the ones behind the camera and it is so important to capture that beautiful bond we share with our children. One day they won’t be little anymore and I know that this beautiful momma will treasure these little moments forever!


Now that you are super excited and dying to get outside and have some beautiful photos taken, here’s the info!  Hope to see you soon! 🙂
