Town & Country Events Fall Mini Sessions in Milford, Illinois

They’re back! This is the ninth – yes, I’m pretty sure the ninth (okay, maybe the tenth!) – time I’ve photographed this family. Each year with them gets better and better, and I am thankful they have trusted me and supported my business since the early years! It’s been a true joy to watch their […]

Another beautiful family’s photos are on the blog today! Not too long after I moved to Jacksonville for college and called the area my home for a few years, I met the Anderson family through a mutual friend.

One of my favorites… The Clemmons family! I loved this year’s session with this sweet family! Each year, I join them on their family farm for photos and this year did not disappoint. A little pop-up September storm rolled in before (and another after!) the session, but it didn’t stop us from taking some beautiful […]

After a week FULL of rain, the skies parted and we were thankful for sunshine, clouds, and only wind for their […]

It’s always a joy to photograph the Hesterberg family! You probably remember these faces from a past family session back in December 2016, two wedding days (Brittany + Luke and Logan + Josiah), and two engagement sessions. I have LOVED photographing important moments in this family’s life! Since earlier this year, I have been looking forward […]
