Sweeney Photography has relocated in Madison WI!

It’s been a crazy week but we’re finally in our new studio space!!

6441 Enterprise Lane, Suite 215

Madison, WI 53719

As soon as the last box has been unpacked and put away I will share photos.  But for right now I just wanted to let you all know the new space is awesome and I could not be happier! 

Weddings & Seniors & Calendars -Oh My!!

Sweeney Photography has been busy!!

In the last several months I have been helping local professionals put their best face forward with new publicity portraits.  We have captured wonderful “I do” moments and have photographed some of the most beautiful brides I’ve ever seen!  I’ve helped mark many first birthdays and soon-to-be new additions to a few families.  The Class of 2013 has never been more promising and every senior portrait session as produced amazing portraits of some really great kids .. I mean, young adults.  I walked the grounds at Summerfest so many times that I lost count and photographed some awesome artists from the photo pits.  And let’s not forget the wonderful calendar sessions for the upcoming Thunder Run calendar at Capital City Harley-Davidson.  Yes it has truly been a crazy, busy, fun, exhilarating, exhausting, hilarious, awesome and amazing Spring and Summer!!!

So before the next phase of photography fun begins I think a short vacation is in order.  I have been super fortunate to be invited along to … HAWAII!!!!  I am really excited to be able to spend some time with a wonderful friend and experience a couple of the gorgeous islands for the first time.  Truly a dream come true!

While I’m enjoying some fresh pineapple in paradise the studio will be closed.  But don’t worry – I will be back on September 6th.  Please feel free to email as I will be attempting to check that periodically.  Or you can leave a voice mail and I will return your call when I get back.

Thank you all for helping make Sweeney Photography what it is today!!  I’m looking forward to some time away but I’m really excited about the projects and sessions that will be waiting for me when I come home!!!

New Digital File Add-On for Children’s Portrait Packages!

The digital image file offer is already a hit with parents! 

I’ve been thinking about this offer for quite some time.  It’s a hot button issue among professional photographers.  Do I offer the digital files or not?  Honestly, there are many reasons not to offer the files – print quality control, loss of copyright control – even loss of income.  My biggest issues were image integrity and print quality.  I never wanted to see a photograph I created show up on Facebook after it’s been altered in a way that makes me unhappy to have it linked to my name.  Every portrait I take has a bit of my heart embedded in it and I always thought it should be my “vision” that people see – period.  Then I started to think about all the fabulous portraits people were not seeing.  And that made me sad.  Why should I prevent a parent from sharing these beautiful memories and moments just because I was afraid they would be altered?  (Quite frankly, I don’t think they will be altered because they are awesome from the beginning!)  But if they are – then that’s just fine too.  How fun to see someone else interpret what I’ve captured.  And the best part – now they can be enjoyed by all!!


So .. I would like to share the new offer with all of you today.  The sessions are still the same and a separate fee from the packages.  Now with all Children’s print orders of $70 or more – you can add on all the proofed digital image files for …


*Offer INCLUDES the RETOUCHED image files from your print order!*

I’ve been offering this “Add To Package” for the last 24 hours in the studio.  So far it’s been a HUGE hit!!  Thank you to all my families for their input!!  This is going to be awesome!!
