Eli's Return

You may recognize Eli from a previous post earlier this year. As soon as she returned from summer break Eli and I got together for a session. It never fails everytime she and I get together, we come up with all kind of creative ideas. The camera certainly loves her and it always shows in the images we create together.
Keep and eye out for more of Eli soon...we have been texting shoot ideas back and forth a lot lately. ;)


We had a lot of good laughs over this dress. It's cute but not an easy one to model...but Eli rocked it.

I love the way these images came out. I had a minor headache at the start of the shoot that kept getting worse. Thankfully, I hung in there long enough to capture these. There is another from this group in her sneak peek.

You may recognize the image below from my blogs banner. I just love her eyes!

Baby E

I met this little guy's mom a while back when a friend asked to use my studio space to do a belly mold on a expecting mother. Lucky for me she got in touch with me to take a few pics of this handsome little man!


I love this photo, he looks like he's trying to cover up.

Baby E's mom wanted a shot of him in his first halloween costume. He made such a cute little lizard.

Congrats to Jada and Mike!

Last weekend we had the honor of photographing the gorgeous outdoor wedding of two family friends. We've known Jada and Mike for a long time so it was really an honor when they asked us to be a part of their special day. These two are so adorable together, plus knowing their friends I knew there would be plenty of great photo ops.
For the ceremony Jada and Mike chose a small service at Humiston Woods with mostly family. The fall colors and sounds of the harp made a beautiful back drop for their ceremony.
At the reception they chose to have us set up a photo booth to capture fun memories of their guest. Those photos can be previewed on our Facebook Page.

Jada and Mike- We wish you the best in your future together as husband and wife.

Enjoy these!

The bride and groom had fun socks (knitted by the bride's sister), so the groomsmen wore cool socks too! 

The bride thought she was going to get a kiss from her bridesmaids and ended up getting licked!

Maddy- Senior Session

So I had to admit to someone that in the 14 years that I have lived in Illinois, I had never been out to Funk's Grove. That someone was Maddy.  I was really excited to get out of the studio and go capture some of the early fall colors in Maddy's senior photos.
We had a lot of great laughs and I even had some briar's ruin a sweater, not to mention car ride back to town. haha

If you are ever looking for some where to spend a lovely afternoon check out Funk's Grove.


Maddy loves this tree so I had to share with her stories about the huge Live Oaks trees that grow back home in Louisiana.
