McKenna is one of the happiest little girls I know. Although very shy, we have bonded over the years and I am very proud to say we are buddies and have fun together!! Her smile will warm up any room!
Mr. Griffin, his big blue eyes and sweet, chubby cheeks are to die for. I love his little grin and his little dimple poking through! He is 6 months old….where did the time go?!
Hattie entered this world with bang, as perfect as can be! I was very honored to be her newborn photographer!
The birth story Mom and Dad will get to tell their little girl when she is older will be one of a kind. While the family was out of town for a family wedding, this little girl decided it was her day instead. Waiting as long as she could, Mom couldn’t wait anymore and they headed to the hospital. On the way, Mom said, “I’m not going to make it.” And she was right. They pulled over once at a hotel, her husband ran inside to ask for help and he got back in and Mom said, “Drive!” Attempting still to make it to the nearest hospital, still an hour away from home, they pulled over again, this time in a BP gas station parking lot. A few minutes later, they welcomed their little girl, Hattie. Thanks to the 911 operator, this Dad was able to successfully help his wife bring their little girl into the world.
Funny thing is, they were waiting to find out the gender until her birth day. So, when the ambulance showed up to whisk mom, dad and baby away, they still didn’t know, as it was dark and, well, Dad hadn’t really delivered a baby before, he was strictly following the 911 operator’s strict instructions to keep baby right where she was until responders arrived. The responders grabbed baby and Mom and Dad said, “Well, is it a boy or a girl?!”
“You have a beautiful baby girl”……they said.
Now, Mom will never forget the day of her sister’s wedding anniversary, as her and Hattie share this special date!
And they lived happily ever after…..
Nora’s big, intense and gorgeous eyes has brought a lot of life to my studio over the past year. She did not disappoint during her 1 year session. Isn’t she gorgeous?!
Her 1 year session was filled with pinks, turquoise and creams. I will miss getting to see this sweet girl every 3 months, but I have loved every second of watching her grow!
How perfect is Camden’s 3 month baby session ?! He was smiling, bright eyed and full of personality! His baby blue eyes are to die for. Can’t wait to watch this little guy grow! Best part is, I get to snuggle him when we get together with family too…because he is our cousin!
You can tell this momma did some planning for her little one’s first birthday photo session. His theme was Where the Wild Things Are. I loved his crown, which she purchased off Etsy. She made the banners for the background and the cake. Jackson showed his wild side during his session and gave some awesome expressions for us. And he definitely destroyed his cake!!
This year’s Christmas Mini Sessions were so fun. I love the use of gold and Christmas lights in the background. I had a lot of different Christmas mini session ideas, but I had to narrow it down to two and LOVED the turnout!!
I absolutely loved this outdoor family session with Brianna and her family. Brianna is one of my milestone babies that graduated this year and she went out with an awesome session in Champaign! I loved her cake smash with her custom cake!!

Our First Annual Christmas Tree Farm Mini Sessions were a hit!! I loved all the cute families dressed in holiday colors and looking their best. The rows of evergreen lined trees was simply the most perfect backdrop for these sessions!
We held them at the private property of Red Oak Tree Farm – in case you’re interested in buying trees for your property, this is the place to go!! All their trees are for sale for planting!
