Senior Photography in Central Illinois

I am so excited to focus on Senior Photography in Chillicothe and Peoria, Illinois this year! For all Seniors graduating in 2023, now is the time to start thinking about getting your Senior photos done! Some people choose to have their photos done in the Summer leading up to your Senior year. Some have them done in the Fall after your Senior year already started. Others want to have them taken in Spring when it’s closer to Graduation. No matter when you have them done, I am here to help you make your session amazing!

I love personalizing Senior photography sessions with things you love – sports, dance, fashion, best friends. It’s all about you and celebrating this exciting time in your life.

Check out this Senior session at a river during Fall! I arrived at his house, we rode a 4 wheeler down behind his house through the woods and ended up at this beautiful spot. So much fun!

Lenora + Dan

Tremont, Illinois Wedding Photographer

Haven’t you always heard that rain on your wedding day is a sign of good luck in your marriage? If that’s the case, Lenora and Dan will have TONS of luck because it rained soo hard on their wedding day! This was actually my very first super rainy wedding so I was a little nervous about how the weather was going to go over. In the end, you’d never even know it was raining except for the times you had to use the umbrella to go from the house to the barn!

Everyone was so bubbly, happy, calm, and full of happiness. You could tell the rain didn’t bother them one bit. We lucked out and were able to sneak in their First Look and a big chunk of family photos with just a tiny bit of sprinkles before the skies really opened up.

I loved that Lenora chose her parent’s house for her venue. The ceremony was in their living room and guests sat on assorted chairs. It had a really unique intimiate feel.

Indian Engagement Party | Addison Engagement Photographer

This was my first Indian engagement party at Empress Banquets in Addison and it was SO MUCH FUN! I I didn’t know Indian engagement parties were such an elaborate event! I really enjoyed learning about a culture different than my own. Everything was so beautiful! I loved learning more about the traditions, and all the dresses worn were beautiful vibrant colors.

Here are a few of my favorites from Nitha and Melvin’s engagement party.

Fall Mini Sessions | Peoria Family Photographer | Chicago Family Photographer

Fall is my favorite time of year! The colors are AMAZING, the light is extra pretty, and the weather is not too hot or cold but just right. The beautiful Fall is just all around amazing. Bonfires, Pumpkin Spice Lattes, crisp air, beautiful leaves changing colors. As a photographer I love it even more because there is a pretty backdrop everywhere you look!

I have been photographing this family for years and it’s so fun to watch the kids grow up. I actually used to babysit these kids so yes, saying that makes me feel super old! Time really does fly by and I love being able to capture little moments in time.
