Puppy Love . Springfield IL Childrens Portraits
October 23, 2014

 "There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face." - Ben WilliamsWe feel like this little guy might disagree!  This is just one image from a recent session with a little boy and his pup.  This family has brought in all three children when they were the age of one, and we've photographed them all with their dog Jackson.  They have three framed series of these images displayed together in their home.  What a fun way to celebrate the kids, human or doggy, over the years!

New Blog!

Besides our NEW blog, here's another one of our favorites things recently...this dress!  We've had a few senior girls bring it in this summer and so far we've found that is looks beautiful in all the different places we've shot it.  Love the bright colors and unique style.  Don't be afraid to bring it colorful patterned pieces for your session!

September 19, 2013

…Christmas?! Ok so not REALLY, but it’s definitely time to start thinking and planning for your Holiday Card 2013!  Every year around this time, we pull out our big collection of past client cards, our own cards we have sent out, and cards that we have received from friends, family and clients. It helps to our wheels turning on cool things we can do this year for our clients and our own cards too. Do you have a Christmas Card stash from holidays past?

And Baby Makes...Five! - Springfield IL Maternity Portraits
September 12, 2013

Like a lot of young couples, Josh and Sarah had a few “fur babies” before deciding to add a human baby to the family.  So who better to involve in their maternity session than the pups?  Congrats to the whole family on the impending new baby!

A Guy and His Truck - Senior Portraits Springfield IL
August 28, 2013

Eating fresh wheat from the field, shooting at these grain bins, and driving out into the country were all a part of Adam’s awesome session.  We love when we get to go new places and do new things!  Adam was a great sport, even with us teaching him how to pose his hands in a MANLY way and hopefully not giving him a complex. The passion he has for his family farm shows through in his images and we hope they bring his family a lot of joy and good memories for decades to come.
