Welcome to Penny Grissman Photography!

As we followed our Kaukauna High School homecoming float, my friends and I were laughing and having the time of our lives.  To capture the moment, I threw my camera into action and took endless pictures of our excitement.  That is the moment my love-affair with photography began.  The smiles and laughter that I’ve photographed over the years have brought happiness and revived priceless memories for many people.  Now, as a mom, the importance of preserving my kids’ lives has become an even greater passion.   Helping you create treasured, fun memories is my goal for Penny Grissman Photography.

While specializing in senior, friends and family photography, capturing your true personality is my main objective.   Our photoshoot will be personable and entertaining, as I create trendy images of the real you.    The pictures will range from traditional to casual, from smiling to laughing.   When you least expect it, I will also catch candid moments that knock the socks off anything I could have posed.   You can be adventurous as you check out a trickling creek, or silly as you balance on an abandoned train track.   Whether the location is a rustic barn, a vintage old mill or a modern stone archway, we will find unique, stylish poses to compliment your personality.

Outdoor locations throughout the Little Chute, Kimberly, Kaukauna, and Appleton area are my favorite places to take senior pictures.  The stylish and artistic possibilities are endless.    The Fox Valley also has amazing parks full of beautiful nature as well as areas for playful family portraits.   My indoor studio is located at 1750 Freedom Rd, Little Chute WI and is used for more traditional, basic poses.

A few weeks after the portrait session, I will meet with you to view your pictures.  Together, we will determine what the best images and products are to meet your needs.   I can show you first hand what your image will look on your own wall with my new state-of-the-art software.

Here are a few examples of my work that were printed in The Fox Cities Magazine.   The best picture was voted on by the public and I was fortunate enough to win in both November and December.

‘Penny’s work is amazing! We were beyond pleased with how our family pictures turned out. Penny is fun, creative, and clearly loves photography. We would highly recommend Penny to anyone looking for a photographer!’   ~Jen Hooyman

‘Our entire family thanks you for the wonderful job you did with our family pictures. Considering there were 22 of us and it was very, very cold outside, you were a trouper and more than willing to do your best. And the best you did!! We would recommend you to anyone and everyone.  Thanks so much Penny!  We wish you all the success you deserve.’   ~Don and Sharon Thompson and Family

‘When  I saw Penny’s pictures, I knew that she had to be the one to take the pictures of my three granddaughters!  Penny captured not only their beauty, but the very essence of who they are – their joy, laughter, silliness and love for one another.  She let the girls be themselves and even encouraged it in their poses!  My granddaughters enjoyed their session so much with Penny that they wanted to come back the next day! Penny’s pictures captured a moment in time for us that we will have forever! Thank you Penny!’ ~Sharron Schieble

“Penny was a blast to work with!  She captured my girls’ energy with the camera for some fun and unique photos.  Penny spent over two hours with us in several different locations and absolutely met our expectations.  Amazing talent and a great personality!  We appreciated Penny’s enthusiasm and passion for her work.  Thanks again Penny.” ~Paula Aman
