Miss L | Bloomington Normal Photographer

This little girl, was a complete joy to photograph.  We were silly, we laughed, and I even learned what “tummy alligator” is.. Miss L’s smile completely lights up the room, as well as your heart.  Hope you have a GREAT birthday, L!  It was a pleasure meeting you and your lovely mommy too! =)

Sweet Baby A | Bloomington Normal Photographer

This little red-headed beauty is not only one of the cutie-pa-tutie newborns that I am honored to photograph, she is also the newest daughter of my very dear friends!  Big sister, who will be 3 soon, is sooooo in love w/ her new baby sis.  Both girls are so very special to my family, and we could not be more excited & thrilled for the addition to their family.  Much love, D family!

2 Year Old | Bloomington Normal Photographer

This little miss K was all sorts of diva.. lol  Lots of fun though.. Her mama explained that she’s not much for having her picture taken, buuuuut I think miss K *might* have had a little fun, if I do say so myself.  A little tea party, some snuggles w/ teddy bear, maybe a teeny bit of being pictured out, but then happy again.. =)  Enjoy your sneak peek, mom & dad!

May Special! | Bloomington Normal Photographer

img_4922e

For the entire month of May, Imaginate Photography is offering not one, but TWO specials!  Blame it on the beautiful weather we’re having and fresh flowers in full bloom (knock on wood that it’s here to stay).  =)

Schedule an On-Location portrait session for a studio session price! Special sale price of $60.00 (a $95 value).  If you’ve been considering having more personalized portraits done in your home (no, your home does not have to  be of Good Housekeeping style to be a fantastic location for shooting), at a park, downtown for a more urban style, etc. then now is your chance to try it out!

The second part of May’s special;  receive a FREE 11×14 wall print and two FREE 5×7 prints (a $27 value) for any studio session booked during the month of May.

Call or e-mail if you have any questions or would like to schedule your session and apply a May special!

6 Month Old | Bloomington Normal Photographer

I knew this little sweetie before she even arrived!  I was lucky to not only photograph her mommy’s maternity portraits, but I photographed Miss M’s birth as well!  They have graciously given me permission to share their slideshow, and I hope to get it compressed to post to the web soon.  But for now, here is the sweet pea at 6 months of age.. Thanks B family!..
