Mr. & Mrs. Hardiman and a Rustic Backyard Wedding in the Fall | Bloomington Illinois Wedding Photographer

I went to school with Lindsay and have known her all my life – well, at least as far back as I can remember. Such a sweet girl. Always was. I have so many memories with her of sleepovers, softball outtings, creeping in the woods behind her home, pool parties, boyfriends and breakups. We haven’t seen each other in years….high school graduation was likely the last time. She is just as beautiful as I she was last time I saw her – except this time she is glowing from love. She has met the man of her dreams and after being around them, you can feel the love they share. It fills the room.

These two had so much fun at their outdoor rustic backyard wedding that was held at her parents house. The decorations, the alter, and table arrangements were all handmade with love by the family from items they have collected over the years – rustic, vintage and symbolic. I loved all the details so much!! You can see the love that went into making this day special for this couple. Family came from across the country to celebrate this special day!! I am blessed I was able to be a part of their big day.

I know they will cherish this day forever!!

I wish you both nothing but the very best in all you do!!

3 Month Old Baby Allison | Champaign Illinois Baby Bloomington Child Photographer

Oh when this little girl came in my studio doors, I couldn’t wait to get my little hands on her!! She is exuding gorgeousness. She was so sweet too – didn’t fuss a bit. Sometimes 3 month session can be difficult because they don’t have a lot of tolerance, but she made my job easy!!

Newborn Baby Girl Grace – 7 Days New | Champaign Family Urbana Newborn Photographer

Grace’s newborn session was filled with pinks, purples and greys! I was so excited to use some of my things that I’ve been holding onto for a while!

She was a dream to photograph during her session. She slept “like a baby” – hehe

She had the most amazing skin and I loved the colors we set up for her – she looked good in anything we put on her!!

Grace’s grandma came along for the visit and it was really nice getting to know them…..part of why I love my job.

I know Mom and Dad will love these for a lifetime.

The O’Connor Fall Family Portraits at Crestwicke Country Club Golf Course | Hudson Child Bloomington Family Photographer

When this mama reached out to me, I couldn’t have been more excited to meet up!! She, too is one of my Sig Kap sorority sisters from EIU!! I love that what I’m doing allows me to visit old friends – and even better – I found out we live in the same town too!!! Hoping we are able to get our kids and families together more often now that I know we only live minutes apart!!

This family was so fun – kids so close in age to my own always make my job a little easier. We giggled, played games, laughed and, of course got some amazing photos at the amazingly beautiful Crestwicke Country Club Golf Course.

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!
