Kinlee [Pinckneyville, IL Baby Photographer]

Kinlee is a new baby plan member, and this was her first session with me. We had fun, though she did try really hard not to look at me with my big scary black camera! :)

She even took a little nap in the middle of her session, so I took advantage and took this picture:

Surprise! :)

I'm looking forward to watching you grow this year, Miss Kinlee!

Hillary {Pinckneyville, IL Senior Photographer}

Hillary is my first senior of 2010! Due to very cold temperatures, she opted to do her entire session indoors. I think she chose wisely! ;) I took Hillary's sister Holly's wedding pictures last April, and Holly now lives in Italy with her military husband. Holly just happened to be home for a visit, so I got to see her too! :)

Thanks for choosing me for your senior photos! Enjoy!

One for Ava & Ella { Marion, IL Children's Photographer}

One for Aleesha {Christopher, IL Senior Photographer}

Holden is 3 months old! {Sesser & Whittington, IL Baby Photographer}

When Holden's parents brought him in for his 3 month pictures, I could not believe it! He looked nothing like the tiny little skinny guy I took pictures of at 7 days old! He has filled out and is such a sweet little chunk! :) To see his newborn pics, click HERE. It's amazing how fast babies grow.

Just a little worried...

What a cutie! Can't wait to see how he changes in the next few months!

One for Parker {Campbell Hill, IL Baby Photographer}

A different Parker than last week! :)

Karter & Madi {Mt. Vernon, IL Children's Photographer}

Karter & Madi are good friends who's mommies decided to have their pictures taken together. They were so cute and cooperative, it was a great session on a very cold snowy day!

I loooove this laughing pic!

Thanks for such a great time kiddos, you all did wonderful! :)

A little business info... {Sesser, IL Photographer}

Just wanted to make everyone aware that there will be some new policies and a few additions to my products list for 2010. I am excited to be offering some different collections this year too! ;)

Anyone who had their session in 2009 or purchased the "Baby, Watch Me Grow!" plan in 2009 or earlier this year will be able to keep the pricing from the previous year, since that is when your sessions were purchased. Those of you who fall into this category, please be aware that there are new items that you might be interested in, included in the 2010 pricing on the online viewing page.

View the new policies & products list HERE

If anyone has any questions regarding this information, please email me at

In other news, the studio is getting really really really close to ready!! Yay! Super thanks to my sweet husband and also my sweet daddy for working their tails off to renovate the building for me. It is looking beautiful!! I will probably be having an open house sometime in the next few months to invite everyone to come see the new place.

And since a post without a photo just isn't a good one at all, here is a little sneak peek of the progression that has been made in the studio over the past few months:

The day we first looked at it, Oct 29th, 2009:

The exact same spot this past Monday, Feb 15th, 2010:

It doesn't even look like the same place, does it?! I'm so excited!

Reese {Sesser & McLeansboro, IL Children's Photographer}

Reese was a pleasure to photograph! She came right in full of smiles and was so happy! She recently had her 1st birthday so we got to have a cake smash, favorite! :)

Thanks for a great session and Happy Birthday! :)
