Environmental Portrait – Woodworker

Environmental portrait of a woodworker

 

When Bruce agreed to be part of my portfolio, I knew he had a woodshop and that he had built a few pieces of furniture….Little did I realize the level of detail and craftsmanship that he has achieved. As paint is to a painter and stone is to a sculptor, wood is to Bruce. He begins with an idea and rough cut lumber…and through process and creativity combined skill, creates beauty that will function and last a lifetime. What a great talent to have!

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!

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!

Portraits of Women – Mother-daughter

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing Paula and her daughter Jansyn as part of my series, Portraits of Women.  This is my favorite of the images of them together. It speaks to me, reminds me of my mom, and makes me wish I had a similiar portrait for myself. Beautiful portraits are considered a luxury, but when the opportunity is gone, they become priceless.

2012 Fisher senior – Boyd

Boyd’s senior portrait shoot was alot of fun in spite of the weather and the late date. We were in the woods where the wind was blocked and it was quite a bit warmer than the shoot the night before, which was a blessing. Boyd has gorgeous hair and  the colors of the autumn woods really complimented his coloring.  He smiled alot, which was great. He seemed to be having a good time.  We  shot a couple of looks in the studio, and then decided to play a bit with a football shot. I think it turned out pretty cool!

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?

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

Portrait of a young adult- Serena

This is Serena at 21. I love the idea of commemorating special birthdays with portraits. It creates a running dialogue in the story of your life. We had an amazing evening to shoot. It was on the warm side without being meltdown hot and there was just a touch of a breeze. We shot mostly around the U of I  campus, taking advantage of the students being gone. There are so many great places to shoot around the campus area. Serena was just amazing, and we had so much fun!!!
