Woodland Baby

This sweet baby was all bundled up in the woods. We tucked him in between the roots of a wise, old maple tree. Someday baby will run and jump and climb the old maple tree. Photographs to follow in seven to ten years.

Serious Senior

I hung out with this senior the other day! Love this one! There are too many to talk about!

Sweet Sisters!

Last year I photographed these girls outside. Luckily we were photographing them in studio today. The weather would not have cooperated with an outdoor session.

I am seeing a beautiful, custom designed HOLIDAY CARD in their future!

Next time you are downtown, stop by the YMCA. I have been working on a display for the YMCA for a few months. I photographed members participating in a variety of activities. The images displayed in the lobby show members swimming, lifting weights, kick boxing and MORE! Today was the unveiling. I was invited to meet the YMCA board members during a reception. Thank you to the State Journal Register for attending. Keep your eyes on the paper for the whole story.

You can see more images at Check it out and sign up for a class while you are there!

She's a STAR!

If you didn't see the Channel 20 news yesterday, you missed seeing my daughter give an account of the bus accident she was in. Luckily everyone involved ended up being ok, but it was really scary! Thanks to a neighbor for this snapshot of Emily being interviewed!

Beautiful Family!

Any family with twin babies and a preschooler that braves the whole "family photo" thing deserves to see one of the images from their session! Enjoy!

Rain, rain, go away!

I had such a great time hanging out with this little girl today! Her personality was so bright it chased the rain away!

Woo Hoo! We got it!


Just one image from one of my family sessions this weekend. Enjoy!

Happy Shining FACES!

Family FUN!

My clients take me to the COOLEST places!

I had a BLAST hanging out at an old barn for this session. There is something about the contrast between old and new as well as beautiful and run down. I love this image! Look for more from this family session!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

At one home in Springfield, it is definately beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Their home was recently photographed and will be featured in an upcoming issue of Springfield Scene Magazine. I was lucky enough to get to photograph the kiddos in the middle of their beautifully decorated home. Enjoy!

Hannah Montana...HERE WE COME!

It seems like forever ago when I gave my daughter Hannah Montana tickets for her birthday. Actually, it was August. Fast forward through the first day of school, lots of homework, sleepovers with friends, a trip to the pumpkin patch and here we are. We are going to see Hannah Montana on the opening night of her BEST of BOTH WORLDS tour in St. Louis! I take that back. We're not just going to the concert, we are in the FOURTH row! WOW! I will report back with a total play-by-play of the whole concert experience. Check tomorrow!

Modern Day Cowboy

Little Miss GIGGLES!

Sneak Peek!

So glad you waited!

This beauty didn't make time for senior pictures when she was a senior, but that didn't stop her. She had seen the images I had done for several of her friends and that was all it took to get her to book her long awaited senior session! Boy am I glad she waited!

She makes it look so EASY!

"Okay, I want you to keep your eyes like this. Got it?"

"And I want your mouth to look like this. Stay there. No, don't move."

"Ahhhh. Now I can take the perfect picture! Click! Got it!"

Something Different!

Puppy Love! Puppy Love!

Sometimes you are just in the RIGHT place at the RIGHT time. Today was one of those days. I was at the APL Waggin' Tails Animal Shelter and so was one of my clients. She was there adopting TWO puppies. I was NOT! Luckily I had my camera and was able to capture the excitement for her! Enjoy!
