Togetherness | Bloomington Normal Photographer

It always seems that once we’re married, have children, etc. pictures of the parents always get pushed to the back burner.  I was so happy when Deb called me about surprising her husband of 30 years, w/ a portrait session, just for the two of them.  Marriage should be celebrated w/ pictures too!  I hope […]

3 Month Old, Baby L | Baby Photographer

Little miss L sure has grown since her newborn session.  She has the biggest blue eyes.  She’s already learning the “don’t smile when the camera’s out” trick though.. As soon as it was put away, she was all smiles!  Still cute though, either way 🙂  Love the smile she shared when her mama had her […]

Tyler & Megan | Central IL Engagement Photographer

There were special circumstances surrounding this engagement session.. Let’s just say the weather wasn’t always on our side, BUT, the wait was definitely worth it, in my opinion..  Even though their first session only last about 10 minutes before a rain storm came in, we still managed a few beautiful shots…  Then after several reschedules […]
