Delaney – Fisher High School Class of 2015

Delaney is another one of those awesome senior girls that cannot take a bad photo, and never quits smiling!!! No fear, no hesitation when I say… “Climb down those rocks or jump into that water fall!” And she does and then Awesomeness occurs! Had a blast driving all over downtown Champaign and then campus, and then back to downtown, and then back to Campus! I think it was totally worth it though cause we got some really sweet senior photos!Senior Girl in Bookstore Senior girl with chalkboard senior girl with waterfall senior girl in denim jacket senior girl in field of flowers senior girl in waterfall

Maddie – Fisher High School Class of 2015

Yay!!!! Another gorgeous senior girl to play with!! And the really cool part, is we were given permission to photograph IN the Urbana Free Library as part of her session. Now how cool is that? Played in downtown Urbana, taking advantage of the art deco marquee at the Cinema and the flapper dress, before heading for the U of I Idea Garden….Where it promptly proceeded to RAIN…ALOT…FOR A LONG TIME!!! But, we stuck it out, dashed out among the sprinkles and got some amazing shots with dramatic skies and flowers!

Senior Pictures – Hannah

Hannah was unsure coming in for her senior portraits. She doesn’t like to have her picture taken. She isn’t really crazy about a lot of makeup either. I asked her to trust me. Half-way through her shoot she was rocking the posing and looking beautiful and seeing how amazing she is. When I look at these photos, I see an AWESOME senior!!! Hair and makeup by Sarah Kellems.

Senior Photos – Taylor 2014

Taylor, a senior at St. Thomas-More, could have had a bad day, it was windy, it got cold and we had already rescheduled once. Taylor had an AWESOME day, despite the wind, her hair looked amazing. Despite the cold, she ventured into the pond. We got fun, amazing and beautiful photos for Taylor’s Senior Portrait  Session!  Crazy weather proof hair and makeup by Tia Crom!

Glam the Gown is such a fun photoshoot. All of the fun of dressing up in a gorgeous gown and having your hair and makeup done without the rush and the hassles. Taylor totally rocked this shoot to showcase one of her prom gowns from this last year. Gotta love a purple sparkly dress and mile-high pumps!  Its the ultimate dress-up date for yourself! Wouldn’t everyone love more than just some snaps of themselves looking just freaking amazing?

Bridal Glam the Gown – JaNelle

This is JaNelle. When I announced that I was photographing Glam the Gown Portraits, she contacted me within seconds….”I have only one photo of me in my wedding dress, and everything else is blurry, scenery, or from the knees down. Can you make me beautiful?” Before leaving after her session, she told me that I had made her feel like a queen, and that every bride should feel that way. I think she is beautiful and I am happy that I made her feel beautiful too!
