One for Angie & John {DuQuoin, IL Engagement Photographer}

Alisa & Cody {St. Louis, MO & Benton, IL Photographer}

Alisa is my sister, and some of you may recognize her as my Assistant Photographer at weddings. She also helps me with my business, and does a little bit of everything, from editing and placing orders, to babysitting while I have sessions. I really don't know how I would manage without her! So when she asked if she could get on my September calendar to go to St. Louis to take these pictures, of course I said yes! I guess these didn't turn out to be as Trash the Dress as we intended, it's more of an anniversary session of sorts, or a "year later" session I guess. We had big plans for them to play in a fountain wearing their wedding clothes, but we messed up and it got too dark too we'll have to save that for another time!

I helped with her hair too! I'm pretty proud of that! :)

This was so much fun, I only wish we could have done the fountain pictures! But hopefully you guys will like these, since it's a different location than we are used to here in So. Illinois! :) Happy one year and 3 months anniversary!

Harper {Ina, IL Baby Photographer}

Look at those cute little teeth!! Harper was such a good girl for her pictures. She just turned one, and was just a sweet little doll for her birthday session!

She had fun destroying her cake!!

Thanks for bringing Harper for her 1 year pictures, she is adorable!

Laskowski sisters {Sesser, IL Family Photographer}

I have been loving the farm sessions lately! Being a farm girl myself, I can definitely appreciate an old barn, some tractors, and a couple of horses! Oh, and don't forget a super cool old Studebaker truck!!

This is the 2nd time I have had a session at this farm. I took pictures of these girls little cousin a few years ago here, and I always thought is was a great location for pictures!

Rachel is such a fun little goofball! I got to know her this summer when I was her counselor at camp!

I love the truck! I want it for my very own! :)

Thanks girls for a fabulous session, I had a blast and I hope you love your pictures!!

One for Lauren {DuQuoin, IL Senior Photographer}

One for Josie - 13 days old! {Mt. Vernon, IL Newborn Photographer}

Hannah & Jake are married! {Harrisburg, IL Wedding Photographer}

Hannah and Jake were married at the First United Methodist Church in Harrisburg, IL. They are seriously one of the most crazy about each other couples that I have ever photographed. They truly seem to only have eyes for each other, and I just love that about them. So very sweet!
This picture says it all!!

Went vintage on this one...aren't they super cute!?

My assistant photographer, Alisa, caught this great ring shot...

I'm usually more of a random girl, but I thought the symmetry in this one was fun...

The groom is a farmer, so he brought his tractor to be the getaway vehicle, and of course we had to pose with it!

Note Jake's low five to his best man...

I am so happy that I got to be part of this very special day when Hannah & Jake became husband and wife. I wish you all many happy years together!!
