True Creative Portraits

A Modern, Creative Senior Portrait Experience

I'm True

Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by! I’m True, a mother of three, wife to Fire Captain Xiong, a creator, photographer, educator, artist and a lover of natural light. When I’m not creating something or shooting, I love to enjoy the outdoors with my family.

I discovered my love for photography a few years ago when I picked up my first DSLR. After a year and a half of dabbling in a little bit of everything, in August of 2014, I gave up my 16 years of dental experience to specialize in high school senior portraits.

I’m blessed with the opportunity to do what I LOVE every single day.  I feel humbled to have had clients travel in from Texas, Arkansas, Ohio, Iowa, Minnesota and Illinois. Whether you are traveling in for your portraits or you are local, I value each and every one of you.

I believe that everyone deserves beautiful portraits of themselves. I hope that I get the opportunity to do that for you.

Let's Socialize



The experience

We have created a reputation for being one of the most sought-after senior portrait experiences in Western Wisconsin. We have been blessed to sell out by June for the next graduating class in the previous years. We are a boutique studio, which means we are not “high volume”. We take a limited amount of clients per month to make sure that we can focus our attention on each and every one of you.

We want to make sure that your senior portrait experience is like no other.

To add to your experience, we have teamed up with the BEST local boutique in town. Our seniors have the opportunity to have a one-on-one styling session with Dale at Dales Clothing, a no-cost service that is exclusive to our seniors.

On the day of your session, you will be pampered by our amazing stylists right in our studio. They use only the best products including airbrush makeup – the same kind they use in the movie industry.  I am the only senior photographer in our area to offer a session that includes styling, makeup and hair.  Plus, you have the opportunity to have your stylist come on location for touch-ups or hair and makeup changes. Each session is specifically styled to you, making sure that we capture who you are.  I will personally make sure that you are feeling beautiful and confident by the end of your session. There will be lots of giggling! I want you to have a great time! You’ll get to see the back of my camera and know exactly how your images are translating on camera.

Our new worry free collections were designed exactly for that reason “worry free”. That’s right, you don’t have to worry about having to let go of any of your images. You’ll receive them all on our custom crystal USB. Our worry free collections range from $800 to $3500. If you are unsure of the products you want, with us you do have the option to book one of our sessions and order a la cart.


* We do have a minimum order requirement with a­ la cart ordering.  ­

I had an all season session with True! It was very personal, professional and fun senior portrait experience. The makeup was great.  I was in and out of the chair. I went to my session feeling nervous, but was relaxed before my session was completed. I would definitely recommend True for your senior portraits!

I was excited for my session. I had no idea what was to come. When my session was over. I wanted to go back and re-experience it. My emotions were filled with joy, beauty and relaxation. It was a stress free experience! True made sure I was comfortable and offered me refreshments. True created beautiful shots. She kept conversations going, which relaxed me. Lastly, she made me feel beautiful inside out!

Thank you for making my senior pictures experience one I will never forget! My mother and I both had so much fun and couldn’t be happier with how my pictures turned out. Thank you for all that you do! I felt nervous and anxious as I first walked in the door, as I didn’t know what to expect, but right from the beginning True made me feel comfortable and helped me relax throughout the session. It was a fun and memorable experience to say the least. True had a contagious sense of openness to her, which helped me become confident with my self in front of the camera and overall, made me feel beautiful. I love them my prints and products they are flawless, exactly like the pictures! I would recommend True for senior portraits she, completely capture my sense of style and personality.

Jamie Hess


True, you gave me the best senior picture experience anyone could imagine! She was fully prepared at all times, which made it a lot easier and stress free for me. She helped me from start to finish, making sure I was satisfied with such precious keepsakes. I can’t even put into words with how happy I was with the senior pictures I received. They were so professionally done. The quality couldn’t have been better! The way True uses the natural light with limited editing is very rare to find in photographers. My products were undeniably beautiful. Easily the best photograph quality out of my entire class!

Jada Blokuis


I was very nervous and excited to work with True. By the end, I felt like we were friends. She got to know me and I loved everything about all of my sessions (and the end result)! I had so much fun working with her! My images are BEAUTIFUL. I love that I can capture how I look now and be able to show them to people later in my life. They were sooooo nice. There was a little lab issue with my album and True made sure to call the company and figure out how to get a new one before I even saw it. I love her attention to detail. I love you!! Thank you so much for making me feel amazing! You are an artist
