Rustic Wildflower Gypsy Photo Session and Cake Smash | Peoria IL Baby Bloomington IL Family Photographer

This session was so fun to plan and this family was amazing. The happiest little girl ever showed up for her session. Mom wanted a gypsy theme and a Teepee for her little girl. I finally had a reason to make the teepee I have been talking about for months. I love how it turned out. I love how all the wildflowers were starting to bloom for the summer as well – a perfect setting for this gorgeous family.

Mom’s dress is from the amazing Apricot Lane in Peoria. They have the BEST clothes!

Newborn Session with Sidney | Kankakee IL Newborn Streator IL Baby Photographer

Sidney’s mom and I met years ago at Presence Covenant Medical Center. I couldn’t have been happier to hear that she was expecting her first child. Miss Sidney was a perfect little angel and looked great in all her pinks and tans. She rocked out the best lacy romper from The Dainty Meadow. Her mom brought in this sweetest flight nurse suit for her as well. Her mom works for AirLIFE Flight Crew and her colleagues gifted her one amazing little present. You can visit this woman’s awesome shop here: Crazy Craft Heaven

Mother and Me Session | Kankakee IL Child Bloomington IL Family Photographer

Miss Meghan has been teacher at for my two children at Little Jewels and happens to be one of the sweetest people I know.  When she contacted me about booking a surprise session with her boys to gift to her husband for Father’s Day, I was so excited. What a great idea!!

Her cuddles and playful behavior with her little ones melts my heart. We finished off her Mother and Me Session with Cubs gear, as her hubby LOVES the Cubs! I hope he loves this gift and I cannot wait for him to receive these on Father’s Day this year!

Newborn Session with Will | Pontiac IL Newborn Charleston IL Baby Photographer

Will’s newborn session was mostly spent with me gushing over his curly flowing eyelashes, his button nose, and his dark hair. The rest of his newborn session was spent with me cuddling him and keeping him soothed to sleep while I worked. We got some great shots during this little man’s time with me. He smiled a couple times, and showed off his big eyes for me once, but otherwise, he was sound asleep!

Meet Will….

Carter’s 1 Year Session and Cake Smash | Tremont IL Family Lincoln IL Baby Photographer

Carter’s 1 year session was nothing less than perfect. Great night. Gorgeous weather and an even sweeter family! Carter showed off his toothless grin while his older brother and I cracked jokes. This family’s images are some of my favorite to date. You know why? Because they show you what raising little kids is all about – I love that they are wrestling their oldest one while their youngest looks around in awe and how they look at each other. I love that they are captured playing with the kids and laughing. I hope they cherish these forever. Someday sooner than you wish, your little one will no longer give you those open mouth kisses or think your jokes are funny. They won’t reach their arms up to you for you to pick them up. It’s so important to savor these moments because they are often gone in a blink of an eye. Capture them — I will help you do that!
