Just like a flower bud, this little sweetie popped up in front of our cameras this week.  That hat!  Those wispy bangs!  Her little lip bite!  Can’t get cuter than this.  We hope this Spring brings us more precious cuties to dote on.  Call now to chat about Spring portraits! 217-787-9070

…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?

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!

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.

Camden is the baby of her wonderful family…we were so excited that this year was her turn to shine in front of our camera.  This is just one of the fabulous photos from her sessions….downtown, a field on the corner of Possum Trot and Chicken Bristle, an old stairway.  We did it all for this awesome girl!

  Haley was down to do it ALL for her senior session!  The lake, a field, a picnic table, downtown, a cabana tent, the top of a parking garage….so much fun to create awesome portraits for such a sweet and awesome girl!  We love being able to create an experience where instead of saying “no” to an idea we get to say…..YES and let’s having you jumping in the air!  We will take your vision a step further.  Enjoy this very small sampling from her session.
