I feel truly blessed to be able to follow my dream of being a photographer. I absolutely LOVE what I do! From the time I picked up a camera, I was obsessed with taking pretty pictures. After 12 years, my focus has shifted… I have come to realize that one of the most important parts of my job is telling your story through my lens. If I’m photographing your wedding day, I focus on authentic, natural and real moments. If I’m photographing your senior pictures, your personality and inner beauty will shine through! These are the moments that you will forever cherish and remember. Welcome to the blog. I can’t wait for the opportunity to capture YOU and tell your story!
Good Neighbor Days in my hometown of Washington, IL provided the perfect backdrop for our Vintage Carnival Inspired Senior Session! It seems like I always say…. this was a favorite, I have to say it, this was definitely a favorite themed shoot! Cotton candy, carnival rides, carnival games, corn dogs, elephant ears, and funnel cakes.. We did it ALL and my plan of shooting for a couple of hours turned into 4 1/2!!!! I was totally obsessed with their outfits and the amazing hair and makeup.
Special thanks to the Washington Chamber of Commerce for assisting me with scheduling, the carnival staff for being so nice and of course my amazing hair and makeup artist team: Tierney, LaNisha, and Marcy for making the girls looks so fantastic and vintage inspired! I can’t forget Jackson’s grandparents for bringing us a cooler of water, you two were so cute!
Way to go Allison Smith, Jackson Hunsicker, Anna Bour, Hunter Schrock, Allie Chaney, Carter DiOrio, and Stephanie Bennett for rocking the vintage carnival themed shoot. Your outfits were fantastic and I had so much fun capturing all of your great personalities! Morton, WCHS, Henry, and Dunlap HS were represented during the shoot! LOVE!
