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!
The lovely Stephanie is a vivacious redhead, who just sparkles wherever she goes! She has incredible confidence in what she wants out of life and isn’t afraid to go for it! This Lincolnwood High School Class of 2020 senior from Raymond, Illinois was one of the first students to apply to be a part of my Lauren Westrich Photography Senior Rep Team! And of course after seeing she is involved in so many activities and clubs in her school and beyond she was one of the first ladies I chose to be on the LWP Senior Squad! Stephanie is part of the National Honor Society, Drama Club, and very involved with the Future Farmers of America! She loves animals and even told me all about the different farm animals she has helped raise including her chickens and beloved Rooster. Her big heart and obsession for any type of animal were on full display after her session when she stopped in the middle of the road leading away from Lincoln Memorial Gardens because there was a turtle she needed to save in the road! She’s awesome, right?!
Stephanie’s senior session began at Washington Park in Springfield, Illinois, where we wandered around finding the perfect spots to highlight this wonderful senior and her personality! Her natural beauty was on full display in a cute off the shoulder black top and retro jeans. Stephanie is up for anything and fantastically laid back, which made my time with her so pleasant and fun! Once we finished at the park we headed over to Lincoln Memorial Gardens, where Mother Nature had a phenomenal gift for us! Talk about a golden hour! Soft Glow + Open Field + Adorable Stephanie = Total Perfection! After we had gone back and forth all afternoon leading up to the session talking about what the crazy Illinois weather was going to do and if we were going to get the rain the weathermen were predicting. I was THRILLED we took the risk to move forward and received the blessing of spectacular weather! Stephanie and I finished up down by the lake listening to the gentle waves hitting the shore and capturing a few more great moments of this sweet senior! Thanks again, Stephanie and I’m so thankful you are part of the LWP Senior Crew!
