Did you know I have a blog? I guess I forgot, too…. | Southern Illinois Photographer

Well, sometimes life just happens. I guess I have this thing called a blog and also a business Facebook page that I need to be paying a bit of attention to. I promise I will try to be better! Truth is, I have two kids, a hubby, a home to keep up with and a

Brave, but mighty. Aniston’s Story.

Aniston’s Story and how we can help… There’s a beautiful little two year old I know that is fighting a big fight….a fight that no one wants to see their child go through.  Her name is Aniston and here is her story (taken by permission from her mom’s blog)…. It all started on September 3rd.  The

The Hollis Family | Southern Illinois Photographer |Fall Family Session

I loved photographing this family!  Jessica is a fellow photographer in Southern Illinois….so, let’s just say, I might have been a wee bit nervous!  You know how it goes, you always want to make sure you do a good job for someone else that is in the same line of work.  At the same time,

Justin + Chelsea | Wedding | Southern Illinois Photographer

So, I don’t normally photograph weddings.  However, back in May, a super sweet couple came to me for pictures and Justin proposed during our session!  They were super sweet and made it so easy to work with them.   If every wedding was this beautiful, with a couple this sweet, I would sure photograph many more!  It was
