Fun fact of the day...wait for it...Vanessa loves babies. It's that simple. Vanessa grew up in a tiny, quiet lake town outside of Madison, WI. After spending way too much time in the art room throwing pots and learning how to develop film in the darkroom she graduated from high school and headed to Florida. There she received her degree in Photography from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale in 2007. She then moved to Boston, photographing weddings and families between traveling to the other side of the planet a few times, before realizing that she really wanted to live closer to family. When she has enough down time to escape the city life that her hippie parents loathe she heads to her family's lake house in Northern WI. Equally as much as Vanessa loves photography is cooking.
