Door County Motherhood & Family photographers serving green bay, the upper peninsula, and the wisconsin shoreline


We loved our pictures!

We found The Helgesons to be such enduring and genuine people and thoroughly enjoyed our time working with them. They truly were able to capture the essence of our family in a very natural way. We LOVED our pictures and will most definitely be working with them again in the future.

from our clients:

"Danielle and Troy were so great to work with! We traveled to Door County from Iowa for our family vacation and I searched a long time before I found them and I am SO glad I did!! Danielle picked the perfect location for our session which captured the beauty of Lake Michigan and the lighthouse was the perfect touch! Love them all SO much!"

- The harvey family

"The Helgesons went above and beyond for us in every aspect possible. It felt like we were taking pictures with our best friends. We were so comfortable and had such a fun time! They are extremely talented and have an eye for creating magical moments and incredible photos. Seriously, they are amazing and we are so blessed to have met them!!"

- Andrea K.

“The Helgesons are easily the best choice anyone searching for a photographer could make! They are easy going, professional, fun, and real. They do incredible work and I received so many lovely comments about the quality and uniqueness of the photographs captured.”

- The spinler family

"We had Danielle and Troy meet us in Door County for our maternity shoot, during our baby-moon. She knew of just the right spot, with just the right lighting, at just the right time of day. I was looking for a candid style shoot that showcased my husband and I and our excitement for the new little one who's about to join our family! They made the shoot fun, memorable, and now we have beautiful photos to remember this experience and share with the little guy when he's older! Thank you!"

- The vogel family

"The Helgesons are amazing! They were there not just as our photographers, but to help with anything they could. They were so fun to work with and down to earth people. We got to know each other well, and became friends. Our photos are stunning and timeless."
