Who am I?
Hi there! I'm Renee Barth a natural light, freelensing photographer that spends a lot of time meeting and getting to know the families I serve. I love building personal relationships with my clients and their families. It makes sense for me to share a little bit of my life with you.
I live here....
Well not exactly, but I do live in Eau Claire, WI. My husband and I met here back in 1997 while attending college at UWEC. After a few years in Alaska, we've settled back down to raise our family in this beautiful region.
My family...my world.
In 2012, my youngest son was born, and I made the decision to leave my job as a high school Social Studies teacher to stay home and raise my boys. I am beyond grateful for making this decision, as they have grown up so fast.
Even though I was a stay-at-home mom, I still wanted to be able to contribute to my family. I have spent those years obsessed with natural light photography. Staying home gave me the opportunity to practice and expand my skills as a self-taught photographer. I've taken numerous online courses and spent countless hours practicing lighting and photographic techniques, as well as post editing skills.
In July 2013, I launched my photography business and have never looked back. Over the past few years, I have grown a lot as an artist. The business itself with the support of my family, clients, and other photographers has built itself beyond my wildest dreams.
I continue to grow and evolve as an artist. There is always something new to learn. I strive to keep my photography style current yet timeless. My gear is state of the art, my software up to date, and my passion strong. I will provide you with a moment, your moment, in a unique authentic way so that you can relive it for a lifetime.
