as they can on the new building but also have used the services of Goebel Builders, Drexel Building Supply, Schmitz Plumbing, Tony’s Installation, Kraus Equipment to do the concrete work, G&H Trucking, Rivercrest Landscaping, Christel Sign, and Custom Detail Woodworking for the counter tops. Work began in mid-October.

The new studio will be about 1,000 square feet which is a little smaller than what Treasured Moments Photography & Design had on Fremont Street, but Rachel said, “I am downsizing a little, but we’re building it to what I need.” Stop in at the Fremont Street location now to check out various furniture pieces and other items left that she has for sale prior to transitioning to her new location.

Treasured Moments still will be open by appointment after they make the move by calling (920) 901-9270, or via e-mail at

“For the most part, everything is going to stay the same,” Rachel said about the transition of the business location. One improvement coming in a year or two will be the addition of outdoor scenes around her home-based studio. She also will continue to travel to destinations to get just the right backgrounds for her customers.

Treasured Moments will continue to photograph families, babies, newly engaged couples, high school seniors-to-be, business headshots and groups, business events, and more. (See the ad in this newspaper for Senior Session Specials.) Rachel advises people to book summer sessions (especially seniors and families) for early July or sooner as she will be taking a few weeks off when the baby comes.

Rachel also does wedding photography but said she has decided to cut back to between 7 and 10 weddings per year in light of their growing family.

Being a mother of young children herself has given Rachel a step up in working with babies and children in her photography work. “I have a knack with newborns and getting them to sleep,” she said. People can check out Treasured Moments’ Web site at www.treasuredmomentsbyrachel.comto see some of the very cute infant portraits, not to mention samples of all the other types of photography done by the business.

Another big part of Treasured Moments continues to be its Photo & Video Booth which is available for rent at www. photovideobooth. biz. The booth has traveled all over Wisconsin for use at a wide variety of events, from weddings to school events, class reunions, graduation parties, birthday parties, business events, and even a bar mitzvah. With the help of her four part-time employees, the booth provides not only color and black-and-white photo strips but also has the option of leaving a video message on DVD for the guests of honor that day, as well as some customizations (such as the photo strips and scrap books with your name, date, photos, colors and/or logo) to make your event personalized to you. (See the ad in this newspaper for Senior Grad Party Specials, and how to get $100 off any regular price event.)
