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!

Contemporary Maternity – Amy and Matt

Life comes full circle. I first photographed Amy as a Fisher High School Senior. Then she met Matt and fell in love, so I photographed their beautiful engagement portraits. Last year we created gorgeous portraits  of Amy with her Mom. And now I have the honor of photographing Matt and Amy anticipating their first child. Its things like this that make me so happy!

Boudoir….Glam with less clothes!

I am getting inquiries as to whether I shoot boudoir photographs. Yes, to me, boudoir is simply contemporary glamour portraits with less clothes, or at least very different clothes. Every photoshoot is about making women look and feel AMAZING. My hair and makeup stylists are the very best. I will direct you down to your eyebrows to insure that your posing shows off every asset and minimizes any negatives. And then I will sell you amazing photos so that you can always remember that you are an incredible woman! This is a sneak peek from a recent boudoir shoot. She came to me and said that she had always wanted to do something like this and with her 25th wedding anniversary coming up, she has a great reason!  Anniversaries, gifts for a groom or boyfriend or just because you can are all great reasons to have a contemporary glamour or boudoir photoshoot! And when you decide, call me at 217-897-1166 and we will make it incredible!

Transformations

We know a little bit about transforming women at Laura Trovillion Photography. This is what we do. The glamour photographs on my site aren’t models, they are real women. These are the same women that you see picking up their kids from school, stopping by the grocery, or in this particular case, enjoying spring break.  Normally this process occurs over a couple of hours with 3 to 5  clothing changes, some tweaks to your hair and makeup and  changing up the background and props. On April 20, 2013 we have raised the stakes – We are transforming one woman every thirty minutes for ten hours. Is 15 minutes total enough for hair and makeup? Can she be posed and photographed in 15? Will she look amazing? The answers are yes, yes and YES.  Two weeks ago, we did a trial run and these are the results!

Contemporary portrait of a woman and her children

This mom went a step beyond what we have done thus far in that she wanted pictures with her daughter, but also her son.(much to his dismay) Boys and later Men, as a rule aren’t much into pictures, but I think this time we pulled it off. We got some abosolutely gorgeous shots of Tiffany, and then daughter Grace and son Landen. Then we put them all together and had a little fun! I hope she enjoys these images as much as I loved taking them!
