Wedding at Tuscan Hills Winery | Effingham IL Wedding Photographer

Tuscan Hills Winery | Effingham IL Wedding Photographer

When Tiffany and I started talking about her wedding last year, I knew it was going to be nothing short of AMAZING. This bride planned everything out to the very last detail, and her and Brock’s wedding was STUNNING! We had the most gorgeous weather for their September 20th wedding at the Tuscan Hills Winery in Effingham, IL. Tuscan Hills Winery is a beautiful location and they do a wonderful job putting on weddings!

Tiffany was a gorgeous bride in her lace gown and beautifully detailed veil. And, make sure you check out the bouquets – she made them! They are the most stunning bouquets I’ve ever seen, and I wish I had just an ounce of craftiness that she has! She and Brock were married underneath a tent outside of the winery (underneath a crystal chandelier, no less). Inside was beautifully decorated with chandeliers, flowers and bling. Throughout the day, everyone had a wonderful time, cried tears of joy, ate delicious food + cake, drank wine + sangria and danced the night away! I’m so honored to have been given the opportunity to photograph their wedding <3

Lila + Vivian | Harrisburg IL Family Photographer

Harrisburg IL Family Photographer – 4 1/2 years ago, when I first found out I was expecting our oldest daughter, Rylie, I joined an online forum on thebump.com. I became a part of a group of women, all due in September 2010. While there were a lot of us in the beginning, at this point in time, we’re down to just a handful that still talk to each other on a regular basis. Of course, we’ve also gravitated towards our own Facebook group, instead of using an online public forum, as well. Anyway, it wasn’t that long ago, that another girl and I discovered that we lived pretty close to each other. I mean, most of us are spread all throughout the country, and to find out that we lived only a couple of hours away from each other? That was the coolest thing! So, when her youngest turned 1, I was ecstatic when she asked me about photographing her one year session. Um, YES, I would LOVE to!! We both have 2 daughters that are roughly the same age (our youngest girls are a year apart), and they were so cute together! And, it was so nice to finally meet her in person, after corresponding with her for years online.

Waiting on Baby J | Bloomington IL Maternity Photography

Bloomington IL Maternity Photography – It’s always fun photographing an expecting couple, because they are so full of excitement + happiness for their soon to arrive bundle of joy! These first-time parents-to-be were absolutely over the moon excited for the arrival of their son, “Baby J”. And, it was extra special for me to photograph them, because they actually live in Bloomington, IL (roughly 3 hours away). For their maternity session, I chose a quiet, country setting with beautiful tall grass, wildflowers, greenery and a pond. It was quite muggy that morning, but with the forecast we’ve had for the past 2 months (scattered thunderstorms nearly every day), I was just happy it wasn’t raining 🙂

 

J & Z, THANK YOU so much for giving me the opportunity to photograph you two (er, three!). I had a great time with you, and am so excited for you all! I know you will make excellent parents, and your son will be so blessed to have you!

Nyla 6 months | Centralia IL Family Photography

Centralia IL Family Photography – Miss Nyla is 6 months old already!! It seems like only yesterday I had photographed her newborn session! And, I just checked back in my archives to put in a link to her newborn session and……I never blogged it! I’m terrible about blogging my sessions, because I just don’t have time to blog much. But, I will definitely have to get out my external hard drive and blog her session, because it’s still one of my favorite newborn sessions to date. Moving on, though, we had the most beautiful evening for her 6 month session, and the light was GORGEOUS. I’m so in love with the outfits and accessories that her mom brought for her session! The setting I chose for her session suited their boho look perfectly! Nyla is such a cute little baby, and I can’t believe how much she’s grown already! Now that she’s 6 months old, her personality is really starting to come out (haha, as you can see). She and her mom are a true joy to work with!
