“Im the photo mom who always has the camera shoved in my kids faces” said Allison Stoneberg, mother and staff member at Oconomowoc High School.

Stoneberg has been taking photos of OHS athletes for the past five years. She started off taking photos of Ocon Alumni, Brett Samson, who is a family friend of Stoneberg. What originated with one person has now grown to be a Facebook page (Stoneberg Sports Photos) with nearly 1,200 followers. Reigning from football, wrestling, baseball,  swim, etc. Stoneberg can frequently be spotted capturing unforgettable moments.

“On a football game, I usually take between 1,000 to 1,200 photos. I go home and crop out the cool ones, lighten up the ones that need editing and call it a day.” said Stoneberg who volunteers her time for OHS athletes. With no pay, Stoneberg never fails to come on game night to support and capture moments for the students at Oconomowoc.

According to Stoneberg, it takes her a couple hours to completely edit and upload all photos she takes during a game. She also says that when wrestling season comes around, her time is largely expanded, as she spends 8-12 hours on tournament days. Giving this time commitment one may wonder why she does it.  “It’s the smiles I put on the athletes and parents faces that make it worth the while.”  said Stoneberg. The only thing Stoneberg asks in return is that if you want her at your game, you ask. Like anyone, she doesn’t want to go anywhere she isn’t appreciated.

“We are getting so big to the point where Facebook is slowing down during the uploading process,” said Stoneberg. It’s clear to see that Stoneberg is appreciated and welcomed at OHS. Her talent and time is something all athletes at OHS are extremely grateful for. A mom and wife who started out with only a camera and an eager family friend, is now a mom and wife with a growing community of fans both on social media and in person.

A message to Stoneberg from all athletes at Oconomowoc: we appreciate all that you do for us.
