Danielle: Carlyle High school [Southern Illinois Hight School]

We spent a beautiful Saturday getting to know a little bit about Danielle through her session. Not so much through the exchange of words, but locations and outfits. We started at the dance studio she has been attending since she was a little girl. She  brought in hangers of tulle, sequins, and shiny fabrics making up the dance costumes she had worn throughout the years. When we asked her about the ballerina prints on the wall, she told us she wanted to include them in her pictures because they’ve been there ever since she started dancing. Her FFA jacket and 4H officer outfit are proof of her handwork and accomplishments in both organizations. Congratulations Danielle!

Renee: Mater Dei High School [Southern Illinois Photographer]

Renee is such a beautiful girl and I couldn’t wait for her City Experience. I’m so glad she opted for a more natural look for her hair and makeup and added a pop of color on her lips in a few.  Renee looked gorgeous! As soon as I saw the red dress and leather jacket I knew just the spot downtown. Her style is spot on and she is definitely not afraid of print. You go girl!

MICHELLE: Central High School [Southern Illinois Senior photographer]

Michelle was our first official “Sunset Experience” and I have to say, she nailed it! Her family property was the perfect backdrop filled with golden haze. It was a hot one for sure and we were attacked by a swarm of horseflies but Michelle didn’t let it bother her at all. She rocked her leather jacket like it was a chilly night in November! I don’t think there was much that could take the smile off her face that night and I’m so happy to have captured it. Good luck this year Michelle!!!

MADDIE: Teen Session

Every once in a while a client will present us with a new and exciting idea. When Angie came to a few months ago wanting to do a special session for Maddie on her 13th birthday, our minds started reeling with possibilities. I couldn’t help but think how exciting it would be to have a photo shoot with your closest friends. Despite a pretty serious battle wound for one, all of her friends came out to celebrate with the essentials: a giant balloon, candles, cupcakes, confetti poppers, flower petals, and glitter during the most perfect sunset. It was every 13 year old girl’s dream! Happy birthday Maddie and thank you for letting us be a part of such a special day!!

AMANDA: Okawville High School [Southern Illinois Senior Photographer]

I know I sound like a broken record but, WOW, those curls and that color give me hair envy for sure! Especially when her orange prom dress and dark auburn hair bring out those gorgeous blue eyes. Absolutely stunning! The wind was blowing like crazy for her outdoor images but you would never be able to tell. She totally rocked it! From sporty to sassy, classy, and elegant her signature album shows so many sides of her personality. She is so sweet and we wish her all the best!!!!

LEAH: Mater Dei High School [Southern Illinois High School Photographer]

Leah is one of those easy going girls I knew we would have a great time with. When she came in for her pre-session consult she told us she liked flowers, fields, tall grass, and pretty much anything outdoors. Then she left it up to us to pick locations and I am so happy she did. There were a few spots we had been itching to try and I must say, they turned out perfectly! Leah, you are such a sweet girl and we are so thankful to have spent the day photographing and getting to know you. Good luck in your senior year!!!

Mrs. & Mrs. Rakers [Southern Illinois Wedding Photographer]

If the amount of laughter on your wedding day is any indication of how long and happy your marriage will be, I think Jake & Becky are in great shape! Over the past year were lucky enough to get to know them very well and I truly believe these two are meant for one another. Everyone knows they tease each other a lot, but behind that is always a sly smile from Jake, letting her know it’s all in good fun, and then she laughs with that big smile of hers and all is right in their world. Their day was beautiful with gorgeous weather and the leaves starting to turn into beautiful display of orange and yellow.  And, not to mention their awesome wedding party, who, after the ceremony, always made sure that no one’s drinking hand was empty and who were completely up for anything!

Becky & Jake, we are so thankful to have spent this last year documenting your story and we wish you many, many more years of happiness and laughter :)

BREE: Central High School [Southern Illinois Senior Photographer]

Look at those eyes! We had a great time with Bree on her session a few weeks back and are so excited with how her images turned out. She was even able to include some very special people into her session through her outfits and awesome drawing skills! I love it when our clients are able to take something close to their heart and incorporate them into their images and the results are amazing!!

The Holtz Family [Southern Illinois Family Photographer]

Carol and her family are so sweet. We had a beautiful day and their outfits are some of my favorites! I’m grateful for the opportunity to photograph the Holtzs before their big move and know these portraits will help turn their new house into a home. Good luck with your move and we wish you all the best!!

Fall Children’s Special 2014 [Southern Illinois Children's Photographer]

Last weekend we hosted our annual Fall Children’s Special at the studio. The set was a hit all around! Mom and dad were excited to see the kids dolled up and smiling for the camera and the kids had a blast with the straw bales and pumpkins. We had a great time meeting new faces and got to catch up with some from last year! We can’t thank you all enough for coming to see us!
Enjoy!
