Something a little different!

I am pretty much a high school senior photographer. It’s kind of my thing. Having said that, there are always exceptions and challenges, and this last weekend was one of them! I was asked to photograph entries in the Lucky Foot Festival Car Show. And this is some of what I got!

Mason 2018

I was super excited to work with Mason! He wanted a very specific high fashion look for his senior photo shoot, and I was determined to create the look he wanted. It isn’t every day I get a senior with such a clear concept of what they want for their senior photos. We were able to secure time at Allerton Mansion, which was absolutely perfect for this look. And Mason just flat out rocked the high fashion vibe!

Andie 2017 – Super Sneak Peek

This girl’s got game!!!Beautiful day, freezing temps and wicked cold wind, but Karma was with us!

Love love love her eyes!

Normally I only post one super sneak peek, but the moody black and white is just too great and I couldn’t decide between the two. Stay tuned til tomorrow when I post more from this awesome, (freezing, but awesome) spring break senior!

Sneak Peek – Zach 2017

Zach is a senior at Rantoul High School. He was originally only getting senior pictures to make him mom happy. Then I said the magic word: FIRE! Suddenly much more interest when discussing what to set on fire! Then we talked about his passions: hunting ( shotgun and bow), fishing, and his truck. After that it was just having fun!

You are gonna have to wait to find out what we set on fire this time! Check back in a week or two!!!!

It was a valiant effort to get Maddie’s senior photos taken before the storm hit Wednesday night, but raindrops were hitting the windshield as we pulled into Allerton Park and the skies grew more threatening. It rapidly became apparent that her senior portrait shoot wasn’t going to happen that evening. Phone calls were made, schedules juggled and we were able to regroup and reschedule for the next day. The universe made it up to us with a  day that is  everything you could want for a senior shoot; beautiful weather, gorgeous senior and almost no one else in the park. As you can see, it was totally worth all of the effort for these beautiful senior portraits. I can hardly wait for her to see the rest…..

Senior Girl 2017

I had honestly begun to wonder if this shoot was going to happen, but evidently the third time is the charm. OMG what a wonderful shoot;. Perfect weather, almost no one else wandering through Allerton Park and a gorgeous, gorgeous senior. I love/hate it when they make it incredibly difficult to choose a favorite.( and I had to play eeni-meenie-minnie-mo as it was) Awesome hair and makeup by Sarah Kellems. Stay tuned over the weekend for more amazing photos of Maddie!

Super Sneak Peek – Johanna 2016


The beautiful senior was originally scheduled for a week ago today….Cold, wind and rain/snow caused us to rethink our plan. What a difference a week makes! I saw this blue wall a few weeks ago in downtown Urbana, and just knew that Johanna, a SJO senior, was going to look amazing with this as a backdrop. I love how it makes her beautiful blue eyes just POP! Special thanks to H2O Salon for hair and make up. Stay tuned til tomorrow for more photos of this gorgeous senior!

Super Sneak Peek – David 2016

Within every shoot, there is an image I fall in love with. It isn’t necessarily the best image, or even one that Mom will want to purchase. They are images that resonate with me as a person and an artist. They make me remember why I do this. This is that image.

“It’s going to be cold. Are you sure?” I asked her. “Absolutely” she replied.  And into the river she went, cowgirl boots and all. Into the fields, into the woods and the river, with a few other stops as well. As I said in my previous post, Molly was game for just about anything. (although the water was her idea). Another awesome day with an Awesome Senior!

Super Sneak Peek – Molly

Molly has some serious game…And some serious patience. Usually I post the super sneak peek within 24 hours of the shoot. Due to the fact that I just today got my replacement computer and all of my software installed, she has had to wait four days. Yet she kept it together. No frantic emails, no texts. She knew she rocked it. And she’s right, she totally rocked it! Stay tuned for the 5 image regular sneak peek tomorrow and see what else she was up to during her amazing senior portrait session!!!! Oh and in case you were wondering, hair and makeup by the fabulous Tia Crom!

Sneak Peek – Crom Family

Tia is a hair and makeup artist that works with me a lot. They had never had family portraits done, and decided with Gage being almost one, that it was time. Evidently the trick to working with a one year old, who isn’t sure he wants to play, is to let him photobomb! And since I couldn’t help myself, I included a sweet, sweet shot of just Gage and sister Hunter! Both shots just make me smile!!!

Super Sneak Peek – Gabe

2016 Fisher Senior Gabe, just wanted to get this over with quickly. Like a lot of senior guys, I am pretty sure he was getting senior photos just to make his mom happy. Two hours and 4 locations and clothing changes later, we took this last photo with his pride and joy. Turns out it wasn’t so bad after all! Stay tuned for tomorrow’s regular sneak peek for more awesomeness from Gabe’s senior sitting!
