Kristen | Just Because!

It’s this beautiful lady’s 25th birthday today! Oh, to be 25 again! 😉 I had the pure joy of getting together with Kristen with what was first going to be a casual coffee date and get to know another photographer in my area — but we opted for hanging out with our cameras instead! I need a new headshot for me website, and Kristen wanted some too. So we met alongside the lovely Illinois River and chatted about business, the joys and the hard stuff of being a photog! Before all this happened, IView full post »

Baby Beer is Brewing!

I was so THRILLED to be contact by Katie and Cody to document their maternity journey. One of the main reasons being Jared & I shot their wedding back in 2013. Their wedding was one of my favorites, and I knew that capturing that adorable baby belly wouldn’t be any different. Katie was styled beautifully and it was made perfectly complete by her floral crown which was crafted by Brie, the owner of Splendor of Eden Katie & Cody, Jared & I pray blessings over you both as youView full post »

Travis, Lisa & Baby Girl!

I was thrilled to have the honor to capture the beginning of Lisa & Travis’s journey of parenthood! As you can tell from the images below, Travis & Lisa are full of joy anticipating the arrival of their sweet baby girl. After having 3 babies myself, I can relate to how fast this little part of it goes. You blink and your baby is here in your arms and your heart is melting and so full of love at the same time. So CAPTURE it! just like Travis & Lisa did!View full post »

Dan & Mollie Engagement

What a joy it was to meet Dan & Mollie yesterday morning! I’m not even sure where to start! Actually, I could start with Mollie’s HAIR. Oh my word, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything more beautiful 😉 I joked with Mollie about it alllll morning that I’m sure she wanted to tie it up in a pony tail and forget that it existed by the time our session was over. HA!! But after I got over the sheer gorgeousness of my couple, I realized that meeting them was like reuniting with old friends. AfterView full post »

Bethany & Garen | A Classic Courthouse Wedding & Session

Bethany and Garen were married before the judge this past Wednesday, March 9th in Peoria, IL. I was delighted to get a chance to sit down with Bethany before her wedding and discuss the ideas for her short and sweet ceremony.

After our family session in downtown Peoria’s courtyard, Bethany & Garen’s parents informed them they had a SURPRISE night’s stayView full post »

Megan & Matt | engagement (part 1)

Megan and I had been emailing back and forth confirming a date to shoot for her and Matthew’s engagement session. She had mentioned in one of her emails that it was a dream to be able to have a snow session – but with the way winters are here in Midwest, USA, she was doubtful. That’s when God decided to show us some grace! In checking up with the weather, I noticed the BIG snow storm we were supposed to get here in Central IL over Valentine’s Day weekend! So what do weView full post »
