My Hometown: Marshfield, WI
Before you share your story, let me tell you mine...
Hey! My name is Arika Mueller, the creator of Mueller Moments.
I am a 29 years old, self-taught photographer, book worm, and True Crime Junkie. Photography is my absolute passion. I love the way that seemingly mundane moments can be captured and transformed into beautiful memories frozen in time. I have fully immersed myself in the world of photography through continuous online educational trainings as well as 1:1 mentorship. I do not settle and believe that there is always something to learn, and always room for improvements. I have also invested numerous hours in newborn photography educational training and safety courses to ensure that your baby is in the safest hands possible during our session. This has led me to becoming an internationally recognized and certified newborn photographer.
My style is minimalistic, clean and elegant. I believe in simplicity and creating works of art that will stand the test of time.
I was born and raised right here in Central Wisconsin. I am a mother to two beautiful boys- Mason age 6, and Reece age 3 who keep my life full of love, laughs and let's be honest, a little chaos! I have a wonderful husband named Justin who is my best friend and biggest supporter. We have an assortment of fur critters; 3 dogs, 3 cats, 3 bunnies and even a tortoise!
By day I work full time in Information Services at the Marshfield Clinic in my hometown. I am by nature a nerdy person and is entirely too addicted to coffee and "The Office"!!

I am a volunteer photographer for
The coalition for children, youth & families.
Who are they?
Their mission is to inspire, inform, and support families to build strength, confidence, and resilience.
They have a vision of flexible, accepting, gracious, strong, confident, and resilient families for every child.
Their purpose is to serve as a caring, expert, neutral resource for families and caregivers touched by foster care, adoption, and kinship care.
What I do:
I assist with capturing portraits of children waiting for adoption, offer Senior portraits for youth in foster care, and assist with capturing special events (conferences, events and occasions)
We loved working with Arika for our maternity session. I am one of those people who always feel a little awkward doing photos and Arika made it so easy and comfortable. She was also great with our kids. The photos turned out wonderful, just what we hoped for.
