Sneak Peek – Sage Family

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!

Varner Family Sneak Peek

Family Portraits on their farmAfter 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.

Glam Maternity – Sarah K

Sarah is one of my incredibly talented hair and makeup stylists, who just happens to be expecting her second daughter!  When I had this idea for glam maternity shots, I think she realized I truly was crazy. But, I won her over and we did an absolutely amazing maternity photosession centered around feeling beautiful while expecting. We also included her darling daughter and hubby for a few fun photos as well!! Sarah, thank you so much, I hope you love these!

Farm Family Portraits – The Hansens

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!

Baby makes Three!

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!

Mother daughter portraits- Chris and Amy

Amy contacted me way back in April about doing a mother-daughter photo shoot with her mom for Mother’s day….except with Amy and her husband graduating college and moving, it couldn’t happen till last week! Chris was totally surprised, and Amy showed us her girly side. It was a wonderful shoot with these two women! Hair and makeup by Sarah Kellems.

Mahomet Baby pictures – Amelia is 6 months

Actually this portrait sitting was closer to 7 months, but they are still adorable! This age, when they are sitting and starting to babble, is such a hoot! We had the bonus of being able to photograph her in her Halloween costume. Isn’t she just too cute?  And I love how mom and dad totally focus on her in the family photo. Who wants to look at a silly old photographer when you can look at a beautiful baby girl?

Fisher Family Portraits – The Hamiltons

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!
