Walker | Southern IL Family Photographer

Southern IL Family Photographer | I have been blessed to have known this family for years. In fact, I held this not-so-little girl in the hospital, a day or two after she was first born 🙂 We had the most beautiful sunlight for their session in this location (a big reason for why I chose it, of course). The dynamic between these three is fantastic; always joking around and having fun with one another. As you can see, it’s apparent that they all really love each other. I always love it when I have the opportunity to photograph my friends. There’s nothing better than being able to provide them with beautiful photos for their home! And, since they are my friends, if you’re looking for a great gym to join, I highly recommend theirs! It’s Doc’s Gym in Flora, and it’s always clean, has a wide variety of equipment to choose from and is well maintained. And, if you’re looking for a southern Illinois family photographer, I’d love the opportunity to photograph yours!

If you’re in the Southern Illinois area and would like to schedule a session or request more information, please email me at julie@juliepottorff.com. I do frequently travel to the West Chicago suburbs, so if you’re in that area (Elgin, Elburn, Sugar Grove) and would like to schedule a session, please let me know! Thank you so much to the Walkers; I really appreciate the opportunity to photograph you three!

Bailey | Southern IL Senior Photographer

Southern IL Senior Photographer | Meet Bailey! She is a member of student council, pep club, fccla, fca, as well as the basketball, tennis and softball teams. Needless to say, she is one very busy girl! Bailey went with the Timeless Senior experience, and she looked absolutely amazing for her session, thanks to Abie Shelton at The Hair Garage. She brought several layered Fall looks with her, and they all looked fabulous! Bailey was so great to work with during her session, and her mom was even gracious enough to hold my reflector for me 🙂 Bailey’s mom was actually my 6th grade teacher, so it was weird to have her doing work for me this time! For the record, I enjoyed having her as my teacher back then and she is still just as wonderful as she was! And, Bailey, thank you so much for choosing to work with me! I really appreciated working with you, and I’m so glad you loved your pictures!! If you’re looking for a Southern IL senior photographer, I’d love to photograph your senior session! Now is a GREAT time to book your session, whether you’re a 2017 or 2018 high school graduate.

Ashley | Southern IL Maternity Photographer

Southern IL Maternity Photographer | It is amazing when you have the ability to not only photograph a couple’s wedding day, but to also photograph their first maternity + newborn photos (coming soon!). These two have been together for years, and you can tell there is so much love between them! They will be welcoming their firstborn, a son, and I’m sure he will be included in their many fishing + hunting trips for years to come! We actually had pretty good weather for their session, even though it was winter. And, as you can see, you can still have beautiful outdoor portraits during these months 🙂 I love how the earthy tones in their clothing match the woodsy background I chose for their session. I think they complement each other very well. Of course, I have my clients send me pictures of their outfits beforehand, so that I can make sure everything will look great together. If you’re looking for a Southern IL maternity photographer, I’d love to hear from you! I love maternity sessions, and I’ve never had a client regret having them done. Pregnancy is such a special period of time, and your child will thank you later on in life for having beautiful portraits of your pregnancy with them.

For more information about maternity sessions, please email me at julie@juliepottorff.com. I’m based in Southern Illinois, but I do frequently travel to the Chicago West Suburbs (Elgin, Elburn, Sugar Grove). If you’re in that area and would like a session, don’t hesitate to contact me! Thank you so much Ashley for choosing me as your maternity + newborn photographer!!

Jada | Southern IL Senior Photographer

Southern IL Senior Photographer | Meet Jada! I was so excited to photograph her session! Jada is incredibly sweet, friendly, fashionable and photogenic. Her session began at the salon, where she received professional hair + makeup application, thanks to the amazingly talented Abie Shelton of The Hair Garage in Flora. Once she was done with her pampering, we set out to start her session in an urban setting. Her layered Fall look really matched well with the brick. Before our sessions, I always have my clients send me pictures of their outfit, so that I can make sure I choose locations that complement their wardrobe. It’s my job to make sure that the entire session is seamless and planned out, so that we have a game plan to work off of. I never go into a session with the idea that I’ll just wing it. My work starts from the moment you book your session, and it is my goal to give every client the vision that they’re after. Jada also wanted Fall colors with her session (always a VERY popular time of year for senior photography), so we headed out to a local park to capture those for her. Not only did she bring fantastic layered Fall outfits, but she brought along her own gun + camo. I love when my clients bring along something that captures their own, unique personality! If you’re looking for a Southern IL senior photographer, let me know! I’d love to work with you and provide you with beautiful photos that you’ll love for years to come 🙂

If you’d like to book me as your Southern IL senior photographer, please email julie@juliepottorff.com. Thank you so very much for choosing to work with me Jada! I’m so glad you loved your pictures and your experience with me!!

Shull Family | Champaign IL Family Photographer

Champaign IL Family Photographer | I had the pleasure of photographing this amazingly sweet, gorgeous family this past Fall, and it was such a great session! We met at one of my new favorite locations – a local state park. I love shooting there, because I can get so many different looks in one area. Plus, it’s absolutely gorgeous there! And, my clients enjoy meeting there once they see it, and they all love driving around it. I first met the mom at a wedding I photographed this past June at St. Stephen’s On the Hill (gorgeous wedding!!). She was the maid of honor, and I was so excited when she booked a family session with me! Her daughter is so adorable, and has the most beautiful smile 🙂 We spent time taking photos of all three of them, as well as mom + daughter, dad + daughter, mom + dad, and pictures of just their daughter by herself. During family sessions, I like to get all of the different combinations that I can, so that my clients have a variety of images to choose from. I also like to work with my clients in finding the specific look or background that they’re after. The Shull family wanted Fall colors and a beautiful, wooded background. I absolutely love their photos, and I’m so glad they were in love with them too! If you’re looking for a Champaign IL family photographer, I’d love to hear from you!

Thank you again so very much for choosing to work with me!! I’m so honored you chose me to capture your beautiful family this past Fall!
