Racine Photographer

Newborn, wedding, and family photographer in Racine

For those who love colorful, timeless storytelling with a fun & casual approach.

Hello and welcome!

I’m Sandy, a portrait photographer in Racine that specializes mainly in Wedding and Newborn photography, but am also happy to provide photography services for your Family, Business, and High School Senior Portraits. I have over 20 years of photography expertise to offer and I love to make my clients happy!

Past clients have commended me on my attention to detail, calming demeanor, and friendly personality. I take pride in developing relationships with you and take your satisfaction very seriously. Don’t expect me to be serious all the time, though; you’ll often find me cracking jokes or acting silly to break the ice with reluctant children and adults alike! You can expect to have a lot of fun during your session, so come prepared to let loose and be yourself!

I provide a full-service experience, from consultation and session planning to an upscale client wardrobe closet & in-person viewing and ordering appointments. This is where I can show you all of the unique products that I offer, and even show you examples of how you can proudly show off your family portraits on your own walls.

My loft studio is located in Uptown Racine, Wisconsin, and serves the Greater Milwaukee Area, Southeastern Wisconsin, and Chicagoland. I offer both in-studio and on-location photography services.

Thank you for stopping by today! If you’d like to chat more, fill out my contact form and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can!

Kind Words From My Clients

Heather Ebner Testimonial

She was so warm and inviting from the second we walked in the door!! Her patience and understanding (we had a newborn and a 2 year old who was missing nap time) made us feel so much more at ease, especially given the circumstances. She was so great explaining how and coaxing our two year old into posing and laughing/smiling and our photos in turn were exceptional. She took extra time and care when our newborn was getting fussy and needed to eat. Her job is not easy and she does it with grace. I can’t wait to get more family photos done with Sandy in the years to come!!

Sandy is one of the best photographers I have worked with! She is patient, creative, fun and makes the session feel so natural. I did my maternity photoshoot with her as well as my baby’s 6 month photoshoot. She is always on top of it and willing to listen to my ideas and make them reality. I highly recommend working with her for any occasion if you want to keep the best pictures of the best times of your life!

I hired Sandy to help my improve my social media presence. The photos she took were perfect for updating multiple social media sites including my LinkedIn profile. They portrayed the professional image I was looking for, and the quality of the images was outstanding! Her attention to detail, and artistic talent was on full display during the photo shoot. Additionally, she is extremely easy to work with and has a fantastic attitude! The value of the images she produced far exceeded the investment!! Worth every penny!!

Anne Kothe Testimonial

Sandy did an amazing job with my daughters senior pictures. She not only did the photography but helped us determine what time of day and outfits to wear based on things she liked. To have an 18 year old who LOVES her pictures is no easy feat but Sandy delivered. We all love them!

Melissa Nyklewicz Testimonial

Sandy did family photos for my family of 5. She has a great selection of clothes to wear for the photos and helps the family match and fit the background. She was super professional and helpful with my 6 month old to get some amazing candid shots. She works so well with families and kids. Photos were gorgeous! We just stopped by her studio in Racine which is an amazing historical building that is beautiful! My children loved the studio and can’t wait to go back because the place was so unique! Sandy did a wonderful job with the baby who is now 15 month old for some amazing Easter shots! I highly recommend Sandy for any photos needed, especially if you have children.

Meagan Knautz Testimonial

From bump to baby, we had such a great time working with Sandy as she captured our journey into parenthood. I was so nervous to do maternity photos because I felt so big and uncomfortable but the shoot was very relaxing and she took very flattering shots. After our daughter Zoey was born, she came to the hospital to take some photos. She was gentle with Zoey and got some great angles of us so you can’t tell just how exhausted we were. We went to her studio for the newborn session and there were so many adorable props and outfits, it was hard to choose from. Sandy was very patient with Zoey and was able to get her into different positions without waking her up. Zoey didn’t end up falling back asleep after I fed her at the end of the shoot but Sandy was still able to get some amazing shots and didn’t bat an eye when Zoey peed all over the backdrop. Sandy is so creative, talented and easy to work with. We absolutely love the photos and loved working with Sandy!

Brian O’Connell Testimonial

My son is curious and adventurous in that he’d rather explore than sit still for pictures. Sandy Conway was able to capture that spirit with such excellence and passion that you’d never know he was constantly in motion. Her work is nothing short of breathtaking.

Brian O'Connell

Angelica Flores Testimonial

I couldn’t have asked for a more relaxed, fun and memorable session for my family of five. Our little ones are (almost) 3, 5 and 6 years old. Sandy was wonderful at keeping our children engaged and entertained throughout the entire visit. She had very creative ideas, while still welcoming our suggestions to help personalize my family’s photo session. Our portraits were beautifully posed with also a great selection of many candid memories. The patience, time and care that Sandy took to make our visit special has set a whole new service and artistic standard for my Husband and I, going forward. We will definitely be back and look to Sandy, our new family photographer, to capture many more beautiful moments for us, in the future.

Thank you Sandy.

Jessica Erdman Testimonial

Just used Sandy for a wedding in Wisconsin. She did a wonderful job. She was very friendly and patient when dealing with our loud bridal party. Her pictures are amazing and she was able to capture such beautiful moments between my husband and I. I would recommend using her for any event you need pictures of.

Gary Smith Testimonial

Our family had our Christmas photos taken by Sandy this recent season. It had been many years since the last time we had done this as a family, and the photo shoot experience was just as phenomenal as the wonderful pictures! Sandy was great and made us feel like celebrities. She also knew what exactly to say to encourage and to motivate true smiles from our twelve year old twin boys. We had so many compliments on our photos.

We now have a large picture taken from our photo shoot hung in our living room. When I look at this picture on the wall, I not only look at it as a historic moment frozen in time, I also smile because this image represents a very special day for our family. Sandy personally made this a treasured experience for us.

Sandy is very talented, personable, and ultimately, she provides great results. I highly recommend her.

Gary Smith

Karen Doyle Testimonial

Sandy has been our family photographer for nearly 20 years. Each photo is gorgeous! She has given us precious moments to display in our home for a lifetime! Shes done family portraits for us, infant portraits, glam photos, modeling photos, business photos and special needs photos. I brought her a group of biting, pinching, no attention having special needs kids including my own and she managed to capture our special kids in a beautiful light… now that takes talent, skill and patience! And I cannot tell you what it means to a special needs parents to have a beautiful photo of their child! Thanks Sandy! You know that I can not rave enough about you! Youre over 2 hours away now but I will gladly make the trip to get our portraits masterfully crafted by you!

Kati Riley Testimonial

Writing this review is a real treat for us because it gives us the chance to tell everybody what an amazing photographer Sandy is. On the day of our wedding she showed up with such a glowing attitude and an excitement to capture our special day. Sandy was very responsive to all of our requests and desires. She even recommended a hair stylist for me after I had found out my previous one had backed out just WEEKS before our wedding. She was professional, courteous and very patient with us. Those are just examples of what a good person she is. The photos she took completely blew us away. They were everything we wanted and more. We were so pleased to have worked with her and will always recommend her.

Kati Riley

Wow, Sandy is an amazing photographer!!! She cares a lot about what she does and it is evident with her shots from August 5th… she is incredibly patient with the wedding party and puts a great deal of effort into making her pictures amazing and your experience with her wonderful. Look into Sandy when you go to book a photographer. When I look at the pictures I can’t help but think of all the love she captured that day.

Alex Erdman

Brenda Thompson Testimonial

I am not a fan of getting my picture taken – but its kinda standard to have photos taken when you get married! I happened upon Sandys web page when looking for a local photographer to take our wedding photos. Sandy responded to my initial email in a very timely manner. I think I was even told her I wasn’t a fan of getting my picture taken… but even with that knowledge she was a rockstar! Sandy arrived on time and was very professional and accommodating of our needs and requests. I nearly cried when I saw the end result… pictures I could actually look at without cringing! They all turned out awesome. We are so happy with Sandy Conway Photography and I am sure we will use her again for future picture needs!

Brenda Thompson

Tanja Vujnovic Testimonial

Sandy was wonderful to work with and captured our family beautifully. We are going to have a difficult time choosing which photos to display in our home as we absolutely love every single one. She took pictures of our newborn and toddler and had tons of outfits and props available. Our newborn was fussy and our toddler was a bit stubborn that day but Sandy was super patient and managed to still get plenty of stunning shots of both of them. I couldn’t recommend her enough!

Tanja Vujnovic

Valerie Mart Testimonial

Thank you Sandy for capturing the raw, joyful, emotional moments from my moms party on film! You are so talented, gifted, and sweet. Your presence is calming and gentle and you capture real moments and group photos so beautifully. I am both laughing, smiling, and crying looking through the pictures from my moms party. I am filed with joy. I am not sure how long we will be blessed with her presence here on earth as she is sick but I will always have these perfect pictures and moments you captured! Even the video you took and didn’t have to. Without you I know I would never have these gifts you gave me that I will be framing on my wall now and for years to come! Love you!

Adrianne Seymour Testimonial

Sandy was amazing, working very well with my 1 month old who chose that day to not want to nap at all!! She was super patient, and tried a whole bunch of different things and props to get us the cutest photos ever. She was great at improvising and changing shots when my little was just not into cooperating. The outfits and props she had were adorable, and as a new mom, I had no anxiety at all with her handling my little one. She was kind, patient, and above all put me completely at ease. It was a great experience, and the shots we got were just amazing, and will be treasured by me and my family for years to come. Thank you for such a great time!!!

Adrianne Seymour

Liz Domkoski Testimonial

Brian Fuller Testimonial

Sandy is absolutely awesome! She was incredibly supportive and helpful during our wedding in 2020, even though we were in the middle of a Pandemic! She was creative and excited to make sure my husband and I captured our special day. Having to plan a gay wedding was difficult, as we were never sure if the vendors we were selecting were supportive of our family – Sandy was amazing! She is LGBTQ friendly and is very helpful in making us feel safe and valued. Her photos are absolutely beautiful, and she is a pleasure to work with. Please consider her as a photographer for your special day.

Brian Fuller

Sandy was my husband & l’s wedding photographer in August 2020—Sandy was amazing with being quick to respond to my emails and calm my nerves over wedding planning during a pandemic!

Sandy was patient and creative while working with a large group of adults, children and a baby! We will cherish these images forever! Thank you Sandy!

Amanda Steiner Testimonial

2020 has been such an adventure for me and my now husband! Changing wedding dates, venues, and plans definitely caused us unanticipated stress. Sandy was so accommodating for us and made sure that our wedding photographer was one thing we did not have to stress about. Sandy did such an amazing job of capturing our magical moments on our big day and was such a trooper while we got married in the rain! I highly recommend Sandy if you are in need of a wedding photographer in Southeast Wisconsin!

Sandy Conways photography is simply beautiful! Her attention to detail, her posing and lighting, its magical. Not to mention shes very personable and fun! I would highly recommend her for any type of photography you need.

Leah Severson

Stephanie Vine Testimonial

Sandy was incredibly welcoming, gracious, and professional from the start when I emailed her. Given our tight time constraints between my son’s birth and our family moving, she was able to schedule the perfectly timed photoshoot to best capture our family images and those of my newborn. One thing that stood out to me was her tenderness with my baby. As a new mom I felt nervous letting someone touch, hold, and move my baby around but she was so prepared and gentle. She really took the time necessary to get the best images possible and made my step-son, husband, newborn, and myself feel so very welcomed and comfortable in her studio. The results were absolutely breathtaking and I am so incredibly happy that we chose her to take these pictures. She was so communicative every step of the way so I knew exactly when I’d get them. My family raved over how beautiful they were. I highly recommend Sandy for any photography needs.
