Are you Ready to Schedule a Documentary Family Photo Session?
FAMILY COMES FIRST - Recently, some of our United States family photojournalists have communicated their readiness to work with families who are able to carry on with their normal life and who want it documented. Family Photojournalist Association professional members offer a distinct and natural style of unobtrusive photography that will capture genuine, candid moments of you, your children, and even extended family enjoying time together...everyone gets in the pictures and you will likely forget the photographer is even there.
The purpose of documentary family photography is to tell a story — your story. You will be able to feel the love that you have for one another in the images. You will see the beauty that results when you are not posed or directed by your photographer to sit in a contrived position and smile on command at the camera. The FPJA has an abundance of top-ranked, Wisconsin family photographers who are available right now. Find yours today!

I am a family documentary photographer located in Madison, Wisconsin. I'm also a mom to three boys--now entering teen & pre-teen years--with a deep connection to seeing and capturing what we miss in those young, early days. It's such a cliche to say it all goes so fast, but as we wind down on sweet nightly tuck-ins and add in far more nights at the dinner table with someone missing due to sports or clubs here, I hone in on fleeting moments everywhere. There is no announcement the last time your child reaches for your hand to cross the street or last time you're cleaning up spilled milk from an excited pourer--among countless other moments that define these years.
As a senior in college, I studied abroad in London and stumbled upon photography with no artistic talent whatsoever. I’ve since visited 13 countries and developed a love for travel photography and a keen eye for light and architectural beauty. While training to be an emergency physician at Mayo Clinic, I was awestruck with how one of my surgical attendings was able to capture his family with the same sense of elegance through light and shadow that I could do with a sunrise in Italy. This admiration sent me on a quest to learn lighting to create amazing photos of our young children that would be much more than snapshots. Starting J.L. Wiswell Photography grew out of this passion. My ultimate goal is to give you amazing images that will make you do a double-take when you walk by them on your walls everyday.

Wisconsin Birth Sessions at Home or Hospital

The right photographer will be able to use discretion while focusing on the fleeting moments that you will want to remember from your birth experience. Whether you plan to give birth at home or at the hospital, you can book a documentary birth session with a professional reportage-style birth photographer.
