I am a wedding and portrait photographer who keeps things light, fun, and full of energy. I’m based out of Springfield, Illinois however I love traveling all over the midwest and beyond.
inquire about your session!
Having a glimpse into The Bilyeu Family’s lives over the last year with the birth of their first daughter, Evelyn has been wonderful! From maternity photos through her first birthday and all the milestones in between has been incredible! Now, this Petersburg, Illinois family has added another beautiful little girl to their crew! Miss Charlotte was born at the beginning of December and is the perfect little gift this winter! I met with the new family of four at their gorgeous Petersburg home to begin their session. Big sister, Evelyn was excited about her new playmate and is adjusting well to the baby being in her world. These two little girls have parents who adore them and their rooms prove that! I’m still in love with Evelyn’s room and Charlotte’s nursery totally followed suit! Absolutely stunning! Rooms fit for two pretty princesses! We even took some time to capture the family in front of their Christmas tree showing off the spirit of the season!
Then mom, Alissa, and Charlotte joined me for a studio session to capture Charlotte’s close-ups! We played up the this sweet girl’s winter arrival with the winter whites, wreath, and pine cones. Plus we made sure to incorporate the pinks that mom and dad included in her nursery. Once we got Charlotte off to dreamland she did great! And to finish up with this cutie, Alissa brought a blanket handmade by her mom and posed Miss Charlotte exactly the same as we did for Evelyn’s newborn session. Definitely brought me back to that first newborn session and now we were onto baby #2! Talk about full circle! Thanks so much to The Bilyeu Family for allowing me to capture these amazing moments with your family!
