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!
Filling my days with beautiful couples, wonderful families, and sweet cheeks like Mr. Jack’s make it all worthwhile. How lucky am I? On a beautiful winter day, I headed over to Jess and Dietr’s lovely home in the Chatham, Illinois area for their adorable son, Jack’s, lifestyle newborn session. Jack was supposed to be a January baby, but life happens and turns out he wanted to make his arrival closer to Christmas. So, of course, we had to get a few of his first family photos in front of their delightful tree. Judging by the few smiles Jack provided for us I would say that he is pretty smitten with his parents! With many snuggles and kisses, who wouldn’t smile? I had the opportunity to use an amazing repurposed table they had which came from an old family barn as a gorgeous backdrop for Jack’s close-ups! He was the perfect little model showing off a few adorable hats ranging from a hat with his namesake to his dad’s favorite cowboy hat! Plus since mom is a veterinarian, a couple of animals friends were a must for Jack’s first photos. And the magic of the entire session…Jack slept right through the entire thing! Thanks so much to Jess and Dietr for allowing me to photograph your handsome boy!
