The littlest Kellems girl turned 9 months, so we went to great-grandma’s farm to celebrate the event. Guess what mom and dad’s favorite football team is????
This darling little diva was a pleasure to photograph, just to see what she would do next. I didn’t get a lot of the traditional gummy grin pictures, but the variety of her expressions is just adorable.
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!!!
This is Aiden at 9 months at his grampa’s house! We played in the leaves (even tasted a few) and played with mom. Then grampa got his restoration project out of the garage for some very cool sittin on the engine photos. Someday maybe he will get to drive grampa’s special car! And finally, because his outfit was just too cute, a holiday themed set with a sleigh and a furry friend! Enjoy the gummy grins and beauty that is a nine month old!
Here are just a few photos from Aiden’s 4 month pictures. We got to go outside and play!
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?
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! Hair and makeup by Stefani Smith.
This is beautiful little Ava, youngest of three darling little girls! She wasn’t really sure she wanted to do this whole “get photos taken this morning”. The weather was less than co-operative, but we snuck a few outdoors anyway. In the end she was great, and nothing in this world beats a cheezy 15 month old grin!
Sounds like a gang in the old westerns doesn’t it! In this case though, The Murray 5 are the Murray grandchildren. They range in age from 6 to 2 weeks. It was wild, crazy, stressful….and wonderful! Their expressions and attitudes are open, natural and so unique to each child.
It doesn’t seem like a year ago that we were photographing Mimi as a newborn, but it has indeed. Now she is no longer baby, she is moving into the great realm of toddler and all of the joys and gray hair that come with it! Happy Birthday baby girl!!!
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!
This is Amelia, or Mimi as her mom calls her, at 9 months. What could be more fun than baby pictures under the Christmas tree?
Jackson is one of those fun ” birthday at Christmas” babies, so we took the liberty of photographing his birthday a little early this year! One year olds are always a great unknown when it comes to a photoshoot…Will they fuss? Will they cry? Will they heave cupcake across the room? Thankfully, Jack is a laid back kind of baby who was quite happy to play with the cars and rocking horse. It was a toss up over eating the cupcake or the candle, but ultimately the cupcake won out!
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?
One is such a fun age to photograph, and Teagan was such a hoot! The weather didn’t co-operate, but we had lots of fun in the studio instead. Mom brought lots of her favorite things, among them her wagon and a giant zebra. Mom also brought cake, and as you will see, Teagan was into cake.( although she did share with mom!)

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!
I just love shooting these darling little girls! We went to Lake of the Woods Botanical Gardens so we would have lots of room to run with super girl capes, chase bubbles, watch fish and have a little picnic. I wish I had half the energy of the two older girls and Ava is such a little doll! The love between these siblings is so obvious and so real…..I am constantly in awe. Take a look for yourself and let me know what you think!
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!
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!
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!
Aubrie is one of those wonderful little girls who looks equally adorable showing her dance moves, hugging her baby sister or taking a moment. We have had lots of fun with her and her older sister, and now we also have her new baby sister Ava!
Here to wish a certain grandma and grandpa a Merry Christmas!
