Nora’s family came all the way from Joliet to see me for their newborn session.
Since they drove all that way, she to see what was going on during her newborn session, so what did I do? Did some open eyed newborn photos, of course! She looked great in all the colors we picked for her. I can’t wait to see her as she grows!
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!
I haven’t seen this little man since we was 6 months old – time flies too fast for these little babies I see. We had an awesome session in Downtown Bloomington on a chilly spring evening – NO RAIN though!
Noah – how can you be here for your 3 month baby pictures already? You were just here for your newborn session….it seemed like yesterday.
Noah was so happy to see me – can you tell? His big blue eyes and super long curly eyelashes batting at me for the morning. I take that any day. Anytime. His mom wouldn’t let me keep him.

I will admit I was a bit nervous about this maternity session. I have just begun to embark on studio lighting and I haven’t done many adults in the studio since I started using them exclusively. These two were amazing and so easy going. They let me put my spin on the session and had a few ideas they wanted to incorporate of their own. I couldn’t be happier for them to welcome their first baby – a little boy – into the world in just a few short weeks!
Valentine Day Mini Sessions were a hit!! We had the cutest kiddos in the sweet little outfits. I did the mini sessions at my Bloomington IL studio and had a sweet little simple, but organic set up that fit both boys and girls. This is my first set of these kind of mini sessions and I hope to offer more like this in the future!
Grayson arrived at the studio with huge smiles, bright blue eyes, and a dress to impress. She is going to be one next week and what better way to celebrate than with a cake smash session?!
Although she wasn’t much into her cake, she played with it for a few minutes and kept smiling. Meet Grayson!

Mr. Cooper is the son of ISU’s football coach and he walked into the studio today as perfect as could be with his gorgeous sister, mom and grandma. He did awesome during his session – although he fought sleep for a little while, he was just the perfect little guy to photograph!! His sister was one of the most well-behaved, sweetest little girl I’ve ever met and their portion of the session is drool-worthy!!
I can’t wait to get these off to mom and dad so they can hang them in their home!! This guy is going to be fun to watch grow!!
I love 6 month baby sessions so much. Some of my favorite for sure! And I love love love seeing this little girl. She makes me work for her smiles, but man is she worth every drop of sweat!! This little girl is already trying to crawl and making moves so she is surely going to be keeping mom and dad on their feet next month. She is a little chunky monkey, but I love every little roll!!! Wren is on my Grow with Me Plan – love seeing them change!!
