Hello! My name is Cindy and welcome to my blog where you can view our most recent work. I have been a professional photographer for 16 years. Our primary focus is weddings and high school seniors, But we also photograph family portraits too! We are Central Illinois' leading photographers for professional headshots for small businesses, large corporations, and businesses in need of personal branding, and content for their social media and websites. My team are experts at what we do and very good at making anyone and everyone comfortable in front of the camera and bringing out your very best.
Meet Ellie Shissler, Class of 2022 senior from Dunlap High School. She has a heart of gold; she is filled with kindness and has a very caring attitude. Ellie is funny, outgoing, creative, and absolutely beautiful! I have enjoyed every moment of her presence as a Shelby Senior this year! After graduation, Ellie plans on attending Purdue to become a pharmacist. When she was a little girl, she wanted to be at veterinarian. She is looking forward to prom this year, “because I haven’t had a real one due to Covid. My favorite class was Medical Biology because I loved learning about how things affect the human body. My favorite teacher is Mr. Hatch because he made the class fun and taught us lessons that we need outside of school. I love going to football games and dressing up for the themes and cheering our team on with my friends. In school, I participate in FCCLA. I love to draw and I babysit.
“My favorite sport to watch is college basketball and my favorite sport to play is softball. A moment I am most proud of is when my softball team won USSA state! I played softball for 8 years”

Favorite Quote: “Do the best you can today, then do better tomorrow”
My “perfect day” would be laying on the beach in California and listening to music.
My mom is my hero because she has shown me how to be strong even when life gets tough. My mom has gone through a lot and yet is always so happy. She sees the positive in everything. She talks me through everything whenever I’m upset. My dad used to coach me in softball and we really bonded through that. He is a hard worker and is determined to do his best at everything he does.”
“I have a cat named Buster, he is very fluffy. A cat named Augie who has a licking obsession and a Bulldog named Hank who loves literally everybody.”
“My favorite childhood memory is when my family played egg roulette on easter where we boiled half a carton of eggs and left the others raw. we would smash them on our heads. My favorite family trip was to California when we went to Hunnington and Laguna Beach.
“My favorite holiday is Christmas. On Christmas day, my mom hides a pickle ornament in the tree and whoever finds it first gets $20.
