Mr & Mrs Kimmle [Southern Illinois Wedding Photographer]

We were so happy to spend the day with Katie and Chad and their families last weekend! Aside from being just a little chilly, the weather was absolutely beautiful! We loved the detail in their flowers and the colors all made everything feel so light and definitely got us in the mood for spring!

Katie and Chad are so easy going and their wedding party was a blast! Ashley, her maid of honor, made us all laugh during her speech and it was easy to see those girls had a great time singing and dancing with the band at the reception!

Katie and Chad – We are so happy for you! Congratulations!! :):):)

Mr. & Mrs. Habbe [Southern Illinois Wedding Photographer]

When I first met Nicole she told us what a romantic day she had envisioned for her and Ryan’s wedding, on Valentine’s Day no less. When she was done describing her ideas, I knew it was going to be gorgeous – and it was. Despite the chilling winter temperatures, their day was filled with so much magic. From start to finish it was beautiful, including a dusting of gorgeous huge snowflakes. It was truly incredible.

As we were taking quick photographs outdoors, we kept telling them to imagine they were on a beach in Hawaii, their honeymoon location – It must have worked because Nicole was an amazing trooper, looking gorgeous and perfect, unlike myself who went home with legitimate windburn on my face. Ah well, the images are what matter, the story is what matters and the fact that it is told as beautifully as it really that day are all that matter in the end.

As the bride and groom return home from Hawaii today, (Nothing like being welcomed back to the midwest with a forecasted 5-8 inches of snow!)  we want to wish them all the best and say Congratulations!!!!
Welcome Home, Mr & Mrs Habbe!

Children’s Modeling Sessions

Interested in our Children’s Modeling Sessions?

To back up a little, here is the deal…
We are contacted quite frequently for children’s sessions, however, up until now, we didn’t always have the required time in our schedules that we believe they deserve. And, we most definitely did not want to produce an inferior product. However, recently we expanded our staff and our shooting area! We added new chairs, stools, props, backdrops and so much more! We are beyond excited and we finally feel like we can create a completely unique and incredible service for children’s portraits that reach our high standards.

We are just missing one thing… IMAGES! We have so many new items that we are dying to photograph! We want to showcase our work and show everyone the unique possibilities we now offer!

That being said, we created a Children’s Modeling Call. We are looking for 15 children, ages 6 months to 6 years to be photographed. There is no session fee for these appointments, which is a savings of a minimum of $85! Then, after your appointment, you will have the option to purchase any of your images at a 30% discount!

There are a few requirements for these sessions…
1 – Parent must sign a model release. This means that the studio can utilize the images in sample products, our website, blog, social media, etc.

2 – You must choose a date based on the list of available options.

3 – There is a $50 deposit. This deposit is to ensure your space on our calendar and solidify you as one of the clients who receives this unique discount. After your session, the $50 is applied to your account as a credit towards your portraits.

If you are interested in booking any of these children’s appointments, be sure to contact us soon as we know they will go quickly!

To book, you can…

1 – Call the studio (618)407-4363

2 – Email us at hillary@hillaryfrost.com

We can’t wait to get this is started!!!

Ryan & Nicole [Southern Illinois Wedding Photographer]

To say that we are a little obsessed with Ryan and Nicole’s engagement pictures is an understatement. Each outfit was perfectly paired with the appropriate location. Although we were not able to get as much time inside the library as we wanted, it made for an even better opportunity with the outside architecture and which made for some of our favorite images. We can’t wait to be there when they say I do in less than two months! See you soon!

2015 Destination Sessions!

It is time to release the 2015 Destination Sessions! Each year we release cities and dates for a unique opportunity to have your portrait experience in a completely different city. From the looks of it, 2015’s locations are going to be some of my favorite yet!

To give you a little more information about these sessions, there are no extra fees. Yep, you read that correctly, no extra fees. Simply arrange with us to meet you in one of the cities on the list. The session fee is the same, the prints and products are the same and as always, still no minimum order. AND, there are no on-location fees, no studio travel fees, no extras at all! You are responsible for planning your own travel and hotel.  

Many of our clients choose to take this opportunity to use their credit card points, airline miles, etc. This would be the PERFECT getaway for engaged couples! Who wouldn’t love a vacation PLUS have epic engagement images?! That would definitely be something to remember.

Or for our senior clients – Many of you are looking for unique images, unlike your friends. THIS is that opportunity. And for Mom, next year as they leave for college, everything will be different. A destination session would be the perfect mother/daughter trip, to create memories and experiences to last a lifetime!

Springer Family [Southern Illinois Family Photography]

Jody contacted us a few months ago and asked if we could photograph her and husband, Steve, on getaway weekend they had planned to celebrate their 30th Anniversary. They had wanted to get pictures taken for their family and thought this would be perfect! We met Steve & Jody at Hidden Lake Winery where they were staying and quickly got to it! Jody brought one of their engagement pictures so we could reenact it and Steve taught us how to spot poison ivy! (Something both Amy and I have never really gotten the hang of) The photography gods were with us that morning because the clouds rolled in just as we were finishing up! We had a great time with them and wish Steve and Jody 3o more years of happiness!

Amber: Central High School [Southern Illinois Senior Photographer]

Amber’s session was a little later in the year and even with it being so cold out, she totally rocked it. We wanted to try out a few locations we’d never done before and Amber was totally up for it! She even laid down in the crazy tall grass in a dress. Now that’s dedication!

Rehkemper Family [Southern Illinois Family Photographer]

While planning family pictures for Amy’s mother-in-law I knew it would be a fun day. The orange and white Camaro went perfectly with the surrounding fall colors and there was never a dull moment, especially with Amy’s husband, Brad, who can be quite the joker. All kidding aside we had a gorgeous day out and I love their images!
