Wiscon based lifestyle photographer Romulo Morishita

My experience with photography starts with a six-year-old boy holding up lights for his dad at a party. When we arrive home, my dad gives me his state-of-the-art Hasseblad camera's detachable back and teaches me to rewind the film. For me it was all fun, but what I didn't realize is that with my father's instructions, he was preparing me for my own future profession. I went to photography school at Focus in Sao Paulo, Brazil at the age of 16. And now, thousands of weddings, events, studio shots, aerial photos, and family photos later, this is still what I do and what I love. Ueda (pronounced "WAY-da") is the name my father chose to be his when he started his business as a Japanese man in Brazil over 50 years ago, and I am carrying it on now as a Brazilian man in the United States. My style is photojournalism. I enjoy the art of photography which lies in capturing the perfect moment when something beautiful is expressed: an emotion, a relationship, an idea. Romulo Ueda

Ruthie Hauge is a lifestyle photographer for Madison, Wisconsin.

Ruthie’s roots are in photojournalism and art. She received a scholarship to attend Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, where she majored in photography and minored in drawing. She interned at the Irish Times Newspaper in Dublin, Ireland. Upon graduation, she launched her photography business and in 2006, was hired as a Staff Photographer by Sun-Times Media. There she worked for almost 7 years covering memorable events such as the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, the 2008 Olympic Trials for Track and Field in Eugene, Oregon, and Paul McCartney at Wrigley Field. During her tenure at Sun-Times Media, she earned 18 State and National Photojournalism awards. In the summer of 2012, Ruthie and her husband welcomed their first child, and she made the decision to give up her staff position to focus on her business and her new role as Mom. Ruthie and her husband now have two young sons and a huge cat. They try to live simply and enjoy outdoor recreation, live music, a good glass of wine and travel. In 2017, Ruthie and her family relocated from the Chicago area to Madison, WI. Before a long day of photography Ruthie's pre-game ritual includes 8+ hours of sleep, a burger, a playlist of Hall & Oates, and an iced white chocolate mocha. On assignment, Ruthie is usually doing whatever is necessary to get the best possible photo, whether it be sloshing through a ditch, balancing on the roof of a skyscraper, flying in a blimp or standing in a bathtub. She loves EVERY minute of it. Ruthie's goal is to go above and beyond for her clients while also capturing as much personality, life and storytelling in her images as possible.

Cedar Rapids lifestyle photographer Kim Pagel, of Iowa

My photography style has been shaped by my own children and grandchildren. I wasn't content with occasional family shoots or snapshots. I wanted to capture each persons unique personality. Now as a grandfather, I want pictures that are honest, genuine, and authentic. I'm passionate about helping families find beauty in the ordinary moments of life! There's nothing more beautiful than the delight of child, an intimate moment between a dad and his son, or the tender expressions of love between a mom and her daughter. These everyday moments seem so ordinary, but when captured through pictures, become more treasured over time. Your family is beautiful and deserves to be photographed. I love capturing unscripted moments that are genuine and hones. No dress 'em up, size 'em up, line em up, and shoot em up. No wonder people don't care for family photo sessions! I believe that real is the new beautiful. All you need to do is relax and be yourself. Don't worry about having the right look or pose, or even what you should wear. I will spend time with you and your family capturing beautiful moments that you will treasure. I would be honored to photograph you and your family!
