Dream big for the smallest moments

We got to join this precious family once again when their newest member arrived. What a home overflowing with love! Big brother takes his job very seriously as he tenderly cares for his baby sister. And while it doesn’t always happen, we are ecstatic we got to be a part of a big milestone: her first smile! We look forward to growing with these smiles for many years to come.

Growing in love!

To ring in the new year this family gathered for smiles on their front steps to show their new home AND their newest family member to be! This adorable little guy was very excited to share his big news: he was going to get a baby sister! We had a joyous time with them capturing this special occasion and look forward to meeting this new princess any day now. Stay tuned for those photos!

Family session turned announcement!

I scheduled this family’s photo session thinking we were just getting the annual shot for the holiday card. Boy, was I wrong! Out of the car hopped the brothers with t-shirts with writing on them. Before the parents even got to me, I’d read the news! So excited for this growing family and what fun to capture their announcement photo.

A wedding at Alton Post Commons

In our line of work, it is very possible to get hired to photograph a wedding, and then due to moves and other life events, not hear from that couple again. Well, many years after her older sister was married, this kind sweet bride sought us out and hired us to join her family once more for another memorable day! Their wedding location was the unique Alton Post Commons in Illinois. It was an honor to work with the brides side again and a privilege to meet a new brother in law, the groom, and his family and friends. We wish them many years of happiness and hope to see them again one day!

Pups join the holiday portraits!

Sometimes when kiddos grow up into young adults, people enjoy getting some fur babies for the continued cuddles and snuggles! This mama has a beautiful family of big kids and fur babies a like. Full of laughs and smiles, hugs and kisses, we had a great time capturing this family for their holiday portrait session. Call us today to schedule your family portrait with all the kiddos, fur babies included!
