Who are you?- Kirsten

Portrait of a woman who loves children

In a contemporary portrait, is it enough to just portray a beautiful woman? Or should the portrait convey who she is besides beautiful? This image of Kirsten was part of a concept shoot to illustrate who she is. Personally I think we nailed it. I would love to hear opinions from others who know her. If we were to photograph you, who would you be?

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!

Baby Photos – Aiden at one month!

Meet Aiden. This darling little guy is one month old and not in the least bit thrilled to be having his picture taken. So, we went to plan b which means mom becomes the baby poser and  gets her photo taken as well. Fortunately mom is just gorgeous, so we had beautiful mom, adorable but slightly crabby baby and some sweet  little outfits.  I had a blast!

Champaign KId Pictures – Leah is 4!

Its so, so much fun to photograph children, especially when you have been doing so since they were born! This is Leah on the occasion of her Fourth Birthday!  She is so bright and active, she reminds me of a butterfly, flitting from person to person and place to place!  I just love the juxtaposition of the pink dress and the bare feet, especially as she swings her bat at the pinata!  Happy Birthday Leah! May your wishes come true!leah jumping

Portraits of children- Miss B

Boots and hats…. I love them both and when you put them on an adorable baby girl, well, it doesn’t get much more fun! The third time was the charm for getting this portrait session shot, but it was so worth the wait.  Brooklyn is such a doll, and we just had a wonderful time seeing the world thru the eyes of an almost two year old. I think the story told in these images is honest and beautiful, and it doesn’t get any better than that!two year old in the garden

Baby pictures – Amelia at 3 months

Baby pictures are a wonderful study of facial expression in their truest form. They have not yet learned to smile for the camera, or to yell “cheese” over and over again. Conversely, they often express their feelings by screaming at the top of their lungs with displeasure at the strange woman with the black box pointed at them.  Amelia alternated between cooing and “talking” with her mom and expressing her displeasure with me.  I just love the range of expressions and emotions we captured during her 3 month portrait sitting!

Portaits of a kid- Hanna

I had the opportunity to photograph little Miss Hanna in a beautiful field of wild mustard on one of the few really pretty days we have had so far. I just love how the red of her dress pops with the yellow! And the pictures with her mom, I swear I can still hear the giggles!

Portraits of Children – Pretty in Pink!

Children’s portraits are always a big unknown. The children that were shy and quiet one day are outgoing and won’t sit still the next! These two little darlings were full of energy and oh so pretty in their little pink dresses! The upside is that being a kid myself, I usually manage to capture one or two special moments like these!

Portraits of kids- Little Miss B

The wonderful thing about portraits of young children is the infinate expressions that are captured.  The look of wonder, the “I’m busy” look and the absolutely adorable angel look; While unique to each child, they are  recognized by mothers everywhere. Part of the joy of photographing children is remembering my own boys as small children, and more importantly, knowing that the portraits I make will capture forever these expressions for other moms to look back on and remember! Yet another reason why I love my job!

Dickey Family Photos

So this is me, finally almost caught up. The photos are the Dickey family with Matt’s beautifully restored pickup truck! You would never know by looking that it was below 32 degrees outside! But we were lucky that the weather was good. The kids were real troopers, even hamming it up, until the last image, and then Naomi was done!
