Liz was raised in Wisconsin and returned with her husband and children nine years ago. They've been exploring all of the old familiar places and lots of new ones too. She is an avid fan of coffee, tea, and tacos. When she manages to steal free time without a pile of laundry, she knits like a mad woman.
Jennifer is a wife, mom and avid traveler who is on a mission to discover her next big adventure. Raised in the Fox Cities, she enjoys writing and exploring new places, especially with her husband and adorable daughter in tow. She seeks to find inspiration among all the little things in life and insists there is no better way to stir up creativity than with a loud thunderstorm and giant glass of chocolate milk. When gifted free time, she enjoys being with her family, crocheting, watching documentaries and camping.
Ally was born and raised in Las Cruces, NM and has spent half a decade here in the Fox Valley. She is a wife and mother, and animal lover. She savors a warm cup of coffee every morning, and will never turn down a chocolate-chip cookie. She is obsessed with photography, and will sit for hours discussing the ins and outs of the art. She has always had a camera in hand, dating back to the Kodak disposable cameras from her childhood. As technology has advanced, she has kept up with the trends, and now finds herself mainly shooting with a Fujifilm morrorless camera. She provides family, children and senior portraiture and will throw a few weddings into the mix each year. Her passion project is documentary family photography, and she loves to include underwater photography with that as much as she can. She is truly grateful to be a part of this amazing community, and absolutely loves all of the resources GVK provides!
