I’m Justyna Nielsen, the owner and photography of Funky Monkey Photography since 2006. My passion is to capture the fleeting magic of childhood. I photograph children ages newborn, babies, toddlers and older as well as their families.
I prefer to document these magical childhood stories in natural settings and using natural light, where the little ones can be their unique selves and have fun. Funky Monkey Photography offer photography sessions in Madison, Wisconsin, and the area including Middleton, Fitchburg, Verona, McFarland, Sun Prairie, DeForest, Waunakee, and more.

To capture your true story, I like to create a natural and inviting environment where little ones have loads of fun and parents relax . Sessions are available in client’s homes or outdoor locations. I continually scout the local areas for perfect locations and can provide recommendations based on client’s needs and vision. My goal is to collaborate for the most fun and creative photo sessions.
I’d love to tell your child’s or family’s story. Please share with me what kind of experience you’re looking for. I looks forward to capturing your monkeys in their natural habitat!
