It’s hardly feeling like Fall anymore with how cold it’s been. Understandably, it’s later November, but it seems like the past few years we’ve had pretty mild Fall seasons. That doesn’t slow us down any because it’s all about those fall colors. Cold, warm, we go for it. With the exception of brutally cold, then…

With how much I’ve traveled for sessions, the one area I’ve not been to very often is western Illinois. In fact, I’ve done more sessions in Dallas, Texas than I have western Illinois (minus the St. Louis metro area)! However, I wouldn’t mind doing more along the Illinois border, holy cow there are some amazing picture…

Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE laughter in pictures? Well, I do! Sometimes during sessions, there’s a little warm-up period where the couple will be learning how I work behind the camera and I’m learning how they are around each other in front of the camera. Morgan and Mitch, though… from the beginning these…

Engagement session number two for Kayla and Jeff. I’ve done a few of these types of engagement setups where we will do a couple different sessions, and I LOVE it! Engagement sessions provide a great opportunity to build a connection with one another. Having two of them? It’s even better. This second time around we went…

It’s been a while since I’ve been to what I call my second home, Chicago. In terms of where I travel the most, Chicago definitely takes the cake, although, this year, it’s been pretty spread out in the southern states! Ashley and Derek’s session started up near Wrigley. I absolutely love this area. Although busy…

Talk about a perfect evening for pictures, this evening was the best! We had a session swap with Astrid and AJ out at TREC Trail in Effingham and wow! What an incredibly fun time this was. Not only are they friends of ours, but Astrid is also a photographer, so one night we talked about…

With Spring upon us, I’m still convinced that winter will make it’s appearance here. Seems like it happens every year. Spring arrives and we get a dumping of snow in late March. I hope I’m wrong, but only time will tell. Taylor and Stephan were wanting some images for their save the dates. Since everything is…

The blog title has engagement pictures in it, but I should probably officially title it pre-engagement pictures. You see, it’s winter, which means it’s not too lively out, nor is it really the best of times to be outside for a couple hours having pictures taken. Noses run, cheeks turn red, and let’s be real,…

Maybe it’s just me, but I love this time of year when the days start to get shorter. Don’t get me wrong, I love summer and the vast amount of light it brings with it, but there’s something pretty awesome about photographing sunset pictures at 6:00pm, of course as this blog post is being published sunset…
