Carter’s Newborn Session | Morton Baby Bloomington Newborn Photographer

Oh this little chunk of a boy was so amazing during his newborn session!! He didn’t make a peep once in 3 hours! We also did some creek photos with his session as well – it was a really warm, balmy night, so he slept great for that too! This was my second outdoor session every with a newborn, and I loved it! His big brother Andrew did great for both portions of the session – such role models, those two!

Jackson’s Newborn Session | Urbana Newborn Gridley Baby Photographer

When I found out that Matt and Alisha were expecting, I was overjoy for them!! I of course jumped on the opportunity to take his first photos when she asked! I’ve had a streak of newborn boy sessions lately, but knew this one was going to be a little different. We use several props that Matt had from his childhood, including a Tonka dump truck and a crane – Jackson fit ever so perfectly into that little truck – it was like it was made for him. I hope to see that truck reappear in the studio as he grows. Alisha also brought in a hand made semi truck, which is fitting since his dad has his own trucking business.

The red and blue blanket was made by his aunt Taylor – which I’m sure will be a favorite as he grows!

Welcome to the world, Jackson!

Family of 5 Photo Session with the Lavazzas | LeRoy Family Bloomington Child Photographer

Jen is an amazing portrait photographer in LeRoy. When she and I decided to trade family portrait sessions this year, I was so happy. I’ve worked with her family in the past and loved every second of it.  Her children are gorgeous and they are some of the most humble, gracious family I’ve ever met. Our original plan to photograph at Ewing Manor was spoiled when we found out there was a wedding taking place. However, our random, last minute back up session turned out to have gorgeous light and a variety of backdrops to choose from – loved it.

The Matthews Family of 4 Session | Bloomington Illinois Family Hudson Child Photographer

This family of 4 booked me last year for their family photos after seeing that I had some advertisements at Little Jewels in Normal, Illinois. I am so humbled that they booked me again this year as well. They are some the sweetest people I’ve met. They are amazing parents to their two babies. These kids are so fun to be around and have such amazing personalities – it’s so fun to watch them grow into themselves. Desta showed the same love and spunk as she did last year and Isaiah’s kind heart with sweep you off your feet – he is very much the big loving brother to his sister too – which completely melt your heart.

Outdoor Extended Family Session | Bloomington Family Lexington Child Photographer

It’s not often that I do extended family sessions, so when I do, I must admit, I am nervous as heck beforehand. How will I pose them? Will everyone be on time? Did I bring enough props? How will their outfits coordinate? What if all my tricks just won’t work on the kids this time around? You name it, I’ve worried about it. However, this extended family session was amazing!! Serioulsy! They were all dressed perfectly! All the kids were such amazing listeners, and despite the heat, everyone did amazing!! I was exhausted afterwards, but the payoff was worth it! I did have to swap a few heads, but hey, that’s expected!

Here is the Kimball, Stuztman, Bauer Families…..oh, and Colleen and Russ are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary (I think it’s their 40th) next year!!

Lydia’s 3 Month Baby Session | Clinton Baby Bloomington Grow with Me Photographer

I love my 3 month baby sessions. I love the challenge of working efficiently, as they tire very fast. I love conjuring up ideas for posing them. I love dressing them and I love when they coo at me.

Three month babies are just starting to really  figure out their emotions, they smile at you, they are learning about their voices….I could go on. For this session, Lydia tested me and won. Not often does this happen, but when it does, I am happy to have my little mini clients come back for a redo – she came back ——and rocked it! Sometimes, our scheduled day just isn’t my client’s day.

Jack’s 1 Year Session On Location | Springfield Baby Bloomington Normal Family Photographer

I can’t believe we just finished Jack’s one year session. I love doing these outdoors – letting them roam, see and feel the grass and they are just so happy outside.

This little one year old has such a cute personality – I loved his facial expressions throughout his session. He is loved to death by his mom and dad, that’s for sure. Oh, and that arm in the air when he walks is to die for – I’m so glad we caught it!

McKenna’s 6 Month Session in the Studio | Danville Baby Princeville Illinois Photographer

McKenna arrived to the studio for her 6 month session full of smiles! I feel like we did a great job capturing her great personality during this little session.  Her grandma came with her too and managed to squeeze a few laughs

out of McKenna. She also brought her vintage dress that she wore when she was a baby – that’s 3 generations, people!! And the dress was in immaculate shape. I wanted to keep it for my baby wardrobe in the studio!

See McKenna……

Lyza’s Three Year Old Session in Uptown Normal |Normal Illinois Child Bellflower Photographer

I’ve been getting to visit with this sweet little girl for the past couple years and watching her grow has been such fun. She is such a beautiful little girl just like here mama and her older sister. I love her red curls and her sweet personality. Lyza was a bit shy at first, as many three year olds are, but I tapped into her interests, related to her, and we were holding hands as we moved around Uptown Normal within 15 minutes! Man, I love my little clients!

Drew + Kristin’s Engagement Session {Part II} | Decatur Couples Bloomington Engagement Session Photographer

I just adore these two. They are as sweet as could be, are super humble and just tied the knot a few weeks ago. I have enjoyed getting to know them the past year. Remember, this is the couple I met and got to secretly photograph the proposal??! You can see that HERE.

Our plan was to do a winter shoot, but let’s be serious…..you all remember the dreadful winter we had, right?! Each time we would set a date, it would either not snow, or was -15 degrees. So we settled for and engagement session in the creek and a warm summer night instead. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Moore!
