Zach is a senior at Rantoul High School. He was originally only getting senior pictures to make him mom happy. Then I said the magic word: FIRE! Suddenly much more interest when discussing what to set on fire! Then we talked about his passions: hunting ( shotgun and bow), fishing, and his truck. After that it was just having fun!
You are gonna have to wait to find out what we set on fire this time! Check back in a week or two!!!!
This is what happens when senior soccer players get to have fun and show-off! Stay tuned til tomorrow for more awesome senior photos from Jarrett’s photoshoot!
It was a valiant effort to get Maddie’s senior photos taken before the storm hit Wednesday night, but raindrops were hitting the windshield as we pulled into Allerton Park and the skies grew more threatening. It rapidly became apparent that her senior portrait shoot wasn’t going to happen that evening. Phone calls were made, schedules juggled and we were able to regroup and reschedule for the next day. The universe made it up to us with a day that is everything you could want for a senior shoot; beautiful weather, gorgeous senior and almost no one else in the park. As you can see, it was totally worth all of the effort for these beautiful senior portraits. I can hardly wait for her to see the rest…..
The beautiful senior was originally scheduled for a week ago today….Cold, wind and rain/snow caused us to rethink our plan. What a difference a week makes! I saw this blue wall a few weeks ago in downtown Urbana, and just knew that Johanna, a SJO senior, was going to look amazing with this as a backdrop. I love how it makes her beautiful blue eyes just POP! Special thanks to H2O Salon for hair and make up. Stay tuned til tomorrow for more photos of this gorgeous senior!
Mr. Just-get-it-done-quickly rocked his shoot.
2016 Fisher Senior Gabe, just wanted to get this over with quickly. Like a lot of senior guys, I am pretty sure he was getting senior photos just to make his mom happy. Two hours and 4 locations and clothing changes later, we took this last photo with his pride and joy. Turns out it wasn’t so bad after all! Stay tuned for tomorrow’s regular sneak peek for more awesomeness from Gabe’s senior sitting!
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!
Here are a few more images from my senior shoot with Leighanne, a senior at Urbana High School. Super fun and creative and absolutely gorgeous as well!
One of the really fun parts of my job each year, is shooting and designing the flags for the Fisher senior athletes. I get so excited about another opportunity to have fun and be creative. And it feels really awesome, seeing them hanging above the field or in the gym for everyone to see. Here are the 2015 Fisher Senior Football Players!
The cool thing about photos, especially senior photos this time of year, is that there is usually a back story, something that makes you look at the photos again and say “WOW”! The back story for Allison’s shoot is that it was cold. Not polarvortex-bomba-whatever cold, but mid-40’s with a brisk 20 mph wind, and I was cold in my parka and hat, so I know she was seriously freezing. And yet, other than difficulty smiling while her teeth were chattering and eyes watering from the cold, Allison stuck it out. We had blankets and made lots of trips to the car to warm up, but she’s got some serious game and we got some amazing shots in spite of the crappy weather! Keep checking back to see her swimming sportraits!!
I am so in love with Jenny’s beautiful red hair! And Allerton Park was the perfect place to showcase this gorgeous senior! We had exceptional Karma going that night, as we not only didn’t get rained on, but got an amazing sunset as the final, final last shot!! Here are just a few of the amazing photos from her shoot!
So many to choose from….but this is my current fav!
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!

This years hair trends are softer, more casual and natural, even when they are updos. Here are two examples of beautiful soft messy updos from H2O salon located in downtown Urbana IL. Notice the incorporation of braiding as well as curls in the first series of photographs, and off-center swirls in the second series. A special thanks to these girls for allowing us to photograph their homecoming looks!
