6 Month Old Baby Boy and Family Photography Session with Riley | Bloomington IL Baby Champaign IL Family Photographer

Riley was so happy during his 6 month photo session. I cannot believe how much he has grown since his newborn session (you can see that HERE) – he was a little guy all scrunched in half in his daddy’s hands. Now this little man is giving his mommy an arm workout with every trip around the house and every diaper change.

Teen Photo Session with 5 Best Friends | Bloomington IL Teen Downs IL Child Photographer

I had the pleasure of capturing a different kind of session a few weeks ago with 5 sophomore teens from Tri-Valley High School. One of the girls purchased a certificate from an auction I donated to for Illinois Heart and Lung Association last year for a free session. She invited 4 of her best friends to join her in a unique and fun teen photo session in downtown Bloomington right before the 2015 school year kicked off. I know they will all cherish these for a lifetime. I can see the true friendships these girls share and I can only hope they will continue to remain friends as they grow.

I attended Tri-Valley my whole life and graduated in 2000. I have always been proud to be a Viking and I love that I get to emerge myself in their world a little bit. Thanks for the opportunity!

Peoria IL Newborn Photographer | Newborn Session with Carter

I want to be your newborn photographer. In a short story, I will tell you why.

So, I got the pleasure of meeting this little man when he was only a few hours old in the nursery at St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria, IL for his Fresh 48 Session. Being a mom myself, I had so many emotions rushing through me when I arrived in their room. The smell of the new baby, the details of the room, the hospital blankets and the little hats they give out, the ID bracelets and their fresh little eyes. Everything about a new baby is mesmerizing. Being there to photograph their sweet little newborn baby brought back my emotions of becoming a mom to my children and my heart was filled with joy.

It was only a week or so later, he came to visit me at my Bloomington IL newborn photography studio this time. I couldn’t believe how much he had already changed in a matter of a week.

This, my friends, is WHY my favorite sessions are NEWBORN sessions! They are only this little for a little while and they change before your eyes every day. I love their wrinkles, toes, dry flaky skin, their dreamy smiles. This is what you want to capture. There are emotions in those newborn photographs that you will cherish for a lifetime.

So book your session today so you will always be reminded of how tiny they once were…I promise you won’t regret it!

5 Week Old Twin Newborn Girls Kynlee + Kaylyn | Sullivan IL Newborn Bloomington IL Twin Photographer

These twin newborn girls arrived about 6 weeks before their due date and we missed out on Mom’s maternity session, but nonetheless, the baby girls arrived perfect and healthy, so everyone is thankful! Skip forward about 5 weeks and view their amazing newborn session that we did here in my Bloomington IL Newborn studio. The literally didn’t wake up once. Well, only for a few awake shots, then back to bed for them both! They were perfect little babies for me! I know mom is so excited to finally have these in her hands. She is surprising her husband with a birthday gift – he doesn’t know she had these done!! What a great gal!

If you’re pregnant and looking to book a newborn session, please contact me!

Bloomington IL Newborn Pontiac IL Baby Photographer | Newborn Baby Girl Sydney

Lucky for me, I get to see this little girl grow up. She lives right around the corner from my Bloomington IL photography studio in Crestwicke Subdivision. She slept like a dream for her newborn session. Sydney was super tiny with long little legs, a sweet little smile and just the perfect amount of hair.

I love the colors from her session – browns, creams and pinks. I hope mom and dad cherish these forever!

Champaign Family Photographer | Bennett Family of 6

Sometimes you meet people and they leave last impressions on you throughout your entire life. That is Tiffany. She is an amazing friend and a wonderful mother and wife. She would do anything for anyone. Period. Today, she packed up her family of 6 and made the drive from an hour and a half away to to see her Bloomington IL photographer friend – now that is an honor.

Photographing  a family of 6 may overwhelm some people and, I will admit, I was nervous. It didn’t help knowing there were going to be older kids (you know those peek-a-boo tricks and duck noises don’t work for kids of all ages). However, I walked away from this session raving to mom and dad about how amazing their family is! Really, the session was fun, easy and laid back for everyone!  I would do it over and over again in a heart beat!

And, again, with that gorgeous sunset – it’s all about the timing!
