This was one amazing birth story. Poor mom was told at a checkup 3 weeks before baby was due to drive herself to the hospital and get admitted for high blood pressure. They would be inducing that night.
Off she went, no bag, no plan…..just her and her baby.
For the next 2 days, she sat and waited while induction took it’s own sweet time. I was texting back and forth the day before the baby arrived and it really didn’t seem promising for arrival that day either.
On Friday 11/17 around 4PM, Dad had texted to update me that she was 4CM dilated. I was waiting to leave until she was about a 6. Next text I get is at 11:00PM —- she is a 10! They both fell asleep and when the RN came in to check her, she was complete. Hang on, Mama!! I’m not missing this birth!!
I hopped in the car driving way too fast to Champaign and……I made it!!! Mom said, “I was really trying hard to wait for you before I started pushing.” Good thing!! This trooper of a FIRST TIME mom, pushed only for 25 minutes.
Logan was born a little after midnight on Saturday 11/18. Same birthday as my nephew! He was perfect from head to toe and already loved so much!
Thank you for the opportunity to capture such an amazing experience.

This cool weather makes me think of fall. How about you?! It’s right around the corner and spots are filling up quickly.
We are now booking our sessions online — thank the good Lord that I found a software that works for me! I have been really needy when it comes to finding one that will work for me!
PS this is my first time going live with it, so let me know if you HATE it or have any issues using it!
Without further ado…..don’t wait to book!!

This family was so sweet to me. Those girls stole my heart during their outdoor session with their sweet personalities and gorgeous smiles. They share a special bond with their parents and you can see that in these images. I really hope this family enjoys their images for years to come.
Elijah, you melt me heart into pieces. Those big brown eyes and that hair. Those cheeks and your big personality! I love getting to photograph this little guy every 3 months. I loved his 6 month studio baby session. His mom and dad always have him so well dressed, usually sporting some cute baby Jordans. Elijah was super strong for his 6 month session, showing off his sitting skills, and his smiles shows how proud he is of himself.
Carrigan was a little more smiley this time around during her 9 month session. I adore her chubby cheeks, big brown eyes and her huge personality. Oh, and kuddos to her mom let’s me dress her up however I want!!
I was so happy when this couple reached out for a maternity session! She was looking for a maternity photographer to document her memory of being pregnant with her first baby girl. Although spring was showing all around us with flowering trees and tulips, there was quite a winter’s chill looming over us this day. These two didn’t mind at all. They were so excited to be doing their maternity photos, nothing was going to stop them! So glad we were able to get some of the gorgeous sunset showing through the trees.
Can’t wait to meet their little girl!
Jerzey’s grow with me and cake smash session was a hit — she loved being dressed up and gave us lots of smiles. She also sure loved her cake — until she was done. She let us know when she was done with her cake smash and wasn’t shy about it. Loved her sparkly outfits and her big blue eyes.
Whew. Fall Mini sessions were awesome this year!! Gorgeous colors, amazing families and warm weather!!
