Gorgeous family, great weather and beautiful location!
Janssen was one of my class of 2015 seniors from St. Joe-Ogden High School. This time I got to photograph the whole family before he heads off to College! I always have fun with my senior family portraits, but I don’t think I have ever laughed as much as I did with this crew! What an awesome family!
After being rained out on Monday, we had a perfect evening yesterday for the Varner’s family portraits on their farm. Technically this isn’t the best photo from the shoot. It’s the one that makes me smile. You can’t look at those happy faces, and not want to smile. This is just one of those times where genuine smiles and laughter trump all.
We had so much fun, even the cows wanted to be in the photo!
Celebrating family. Need I say more?
The Browning family chose the day before Thanksgiving as the perfect opportunity to get family portraits since all the kids would be home for the holiday! Despite the trekking through woods in heels and the bitter cold temps, they maintained great humor and beautiful smiles.( and you hardly notice the goosebumps!!!)
Why settle for normal when you can have fun? The Clanton family was sssoooo much fun during their complimentary family portrait session!
Its that time of year, when you realize your baby is going to college….and you want a family photo! This was a really fun, laid back session and I love being able to get reflections AND a dock!
I love photographing this family. Our photo shoots are always fun and incredibly laid back. I love even more that I have the honor of telling the story of their lives!
This wonderful family in Mahomet with their two beautiful girls was such a delight to photograph! We had a beautiful day and lots of fun!!!
“We want a family portrait, but not the posed, cheesey, everybody sit still kind” were the requirements for this family’s portrait shoot! Knowing that Ja Nelle and her husband Chris are incredibly creative, plus having three kids under the age of 8, I knew I would have to come up with something completely out of the box….And huge mess aside, I think we did it!
I got to spend part of the lovely Columbus day holiday photographing the Handsfield family at their home near Mahomet. Such a fun family and with a lake in the backyard and a soccer goal in the front, we were able to capture them doing some of the things they love to do as a family!
An amazing, beautiful family on the farm at harvest….need I say more?
The fun thing about photographing families in the midwest is that you get to use really really BIG tractors as props! It was a hot, hot afternoon, but the sky was gorgeous blue and the tractor was clean and ready to go! Creating really fun, unique family portraits is something that I really love doing and I think these are some of my best!
I love photographing 6 month old babies; they sit up and have lots of expression and are just too cute for words. Hadley with her beautiful big eyes was no exception! She brought her mom and dad along, so we got some beautiful family photos and a couple of extras with dad. Since mom is gorgeous and all done up with her hair and makeup, we did some contemporary portraits of her as well! Such a fun family to work with! Hair and makeup by Sarah Kellems!

I love shooting portraits of families with small children. You never know what to expect! We had a lovely evening at the Lake of the Woods Botanical Gardens and 5 wonderful and 3 unpredictable subjects! Every family is so unique, and I love it when I can get them all together like this first photo, as one big squishy, hugging unit. It says to me; “this is my family and we stick together. Us against the world”. And then there are times where you have to work with what you have, which in this case was a 14 month old who was done being held…She wanted down, so we gave her down….and walking! Every shoot has hilarious outtakes and this one in particular was just too funny! Our final image here is way outside any concept of traditional, but if you have ever had kids and a swingset, you can so totally relate and remember. I have said before, I want my photographs to tell stories, and I think the story titled Family has been told here well!
