Ok everyone! I am excited to offer these! I came up with these when I was trying to capture Jack’s 9 month photos and he wanted nothing to do with it. I just started taking photos of his feet, hands, hair, etc because he was too busy and annoyed with me trying to get any smiles or showing off his personality. I love them so much and they are my fave, so I wanted to share them with everyone else.
I think these sessions are best for babies 12 months and under, but could work for older babies too. I will be providing a white onsie for up to 12 months in size. Feel free to bring something else simple if you wish as well! I will be shooting on white, so keep that in mind! I have simple headbands for your little girls too if you prefer! If these times don’t work well with your nap times, please send me an email, as we want your happiest baby!
Spring Mini Sessions for Bloomington IL are here! You can book online. There are only 3 remaining openings, so don’t hesitate to book!

So I am trying something a little new for my blog posts. I’m not sure how long it will last, if it will be consistent, or it will even work effectively.
I often get behind on blogging/posting to my website because of the amount of time it takes to describe the sheer awesomeness that each family and session deserves. I love each and every family/person that I have the privilege of capturing, but the journalistic side of my job I often find difficult. So, in order to get you WAY more cuteness and a higher volume of eye candy, I have decided I’m only going to include photos for each of my blog posts from here on out (at least as a trial).
I mean, seriously, you all surely don’t come to a photographer’s website to READ, do you?!
So, without further ado, this is 18 month old Charlotte and her amazing family….
I love having the privilege of being invited into people’s homes for photographs, especially when they are celebrating the welcoming of a new baby! This family is welcoming Leo. He is the newest member of their family and was 15 days fresh when we took these photos. His big sister Avery, a HUGE Star Wars fan, was very happy about showing him off! She loves to snuggle him and I’m sure is very much looking forward to having lightsaber battles with him as soon as he can hold one!
My favorite thing about newborn lifestyle sessions is that I get to see your life in real time. Sure, we do some posed pictures and I try to keep everyone together, but I also get to capture real life as it happens. So many of these images have been captured with only a little bit of direction. Avery reading a book on the couch — totally her idea! Their sweet little kitty came out to greet me (and I’m told she is REALLY shy). I guess Avery is the only one that can get as closer to her as she does and can give kisses. Bam! Captured that! I know they will cherish these for a lifetime!
Since Leo is adopted and they got the call last minute about his arrival, his nursery is still in the works of being completed. However, I love the simple touches they have on it already and I’m glad we were able to use it for some of the photos.
Thank you again for the opportunity to photograph your gorgeous growing family!
I love meeting new families. This one was no different. Colette arrived for newborn photos with her big brother John and we had an awesome morning!
Colette and I started her session outside in the flowers — LOVE getting to take outdoor newborn pictures if weather allows! She smiled a lot out there so she must have loved it too!
She gave me lots of smiles throughout her session indoors too!
Sibling shots are my favorite and I work really hard to achieve them for my clients.
Sometimes we wait it out, sometimes we have treats or gifts for participating, and sometimes we get some silly photos, which I know parents will look back on and love just as much as the more posed ones.
John wasn’t quite sure about getting in the photos with his new sister, but of course with some cookies, he obliged! I hope you cherish these for a lifetime!
Thank you for choosing me as your photographer!
Oh Lucca was full of smiles and tons of chubbiness for his session with me. I can’t believe how much he has changed. The amount they grow in just only 3 months never ceases to amaze me. They start to emerge with their little personalities and curiosity. I love that I get to be a part of capturing these sweet milestones for so many wonderful people. Lucca got tired at the end of this session, I took advantage and we took some super sweet sleeping photos. Those little curled up hands, long lashes and that little peaceful face. I hope they cherish these for a lifetime!
