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!!

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!

BRIANNA: Central High School [southern Illinois Senior Photography]

Brianna decided at her pre-session consult to do the sunset session and I love the images! The sunlight shining though her gorgeous blonde hair gave me a serious case of hair envy. And how cool is her leather jacket outfit with the converse and watch necklace?? You rocked it girl!

CAL & RYCE: 1 Year [Clinton County Illinois Family Photographer]

“Little boys should never be sent to bed. They always wake up older.” -Peter Pan

I can’t believe these two cuties are already a year old! We’ve known Cal and Ryce’s mom, Casey, since high school and we were so excited when she contacted us for their one year portraits. I knew Casey would have something cute planned but, wow! I had no idea! I love their Mickey outfits for the cake smash. And those bib overalls!? Adorable! Cal & Ryce have grown so fast this past year and seeing the look in Casey’s eyes when she looks at her little boys just melts my heart. It’s easy to see the precious bond you have with your boys and we could not be more happy for you!

The O’Donnell Family [Southern Illinois Family Photographer]

Ainsley: Belleville East High School [Southern Illinois Senior Photographer]

Ainsley is a familiar face around the studio and we absolutely adore her! We first met Ainsley at the photoshoot for the Lookbook we co-created with Lillian’s of Lebanon and immediately knew we wanted to involve her in some of our other projects. She stunned us once again with her beauty and fun personality Supermodel Experience video earlier this year. We were so excited when asked to do her Senior session and absolutely loved how her images turned out. Ainsley, thank you so much for helping us fulfill our vision not just once, but twice and these images are the cherry on top! Can’t wait to see you at your new job!!

ELIZABETH: Mater Dei High School [Southern Illinois Senior Photographer]

Girls like Elizabeth make my job so rewarding it’s hard to think of it as a work. The day was filled with laughter and a lot of girl talk. Not only did we get to know her from talking with her and her mom, but also her locations. I love that Elizabeth chose locations close to her heart. From her bright and fun bedroom to her grandfather’s hammock that was so comfortable Amy almost fell asleep “testing it out.” Elizabeth good luck in your Senior year and thank you for making our “job” so much more than that.
