2 spaces available!

I have a 5:30 and 6pm space available tonight for our Tux Special.  Here is an example of a series I photographed last weekend.  You will treasure these ALWAYS, I promise!  

Miss “K” is 4!

I’ve been photographing this little doll since she was brand new!  She’s a bit shy but good golly she’ll turn on that smile for sucker like no one else!  Loved her outfit and I especially loved those adorable boots!  I have pretty small feet so when she changed into the ballet outfit it was temping to hide them in my camera bag.  I hope you all had a great holiday and new year.  I went back to shooting yesterday with a brand new baby born on Christmas.  Thanks for your patience as I catch back up and tend to a sick kid at home.  I enjoyed the lazy days, lots of food and time spent with my family, but I am definitely ready to get back to creating some images.

Happy Holidays from our home to yours!

I fail at this blog thing.  Like really fail.  I’m trying to make a better effort but FACEBOOK is so easy to get images out there and I just get lazy.  I however have changed my photo and updated the top image in an effort to start posting again.  I wanted to share our family Christmas card with all of you.  We’ve been planning this for quite some time.  As you can see, sports, school, business and work keep us on the go most days.  This winter has been especially hectic.  This card is totally us!  We are in the place where we gather, doing the things that we love and make up our busy lives.  My family LOVED doing this.  Usually family photos are not their favorite day.  This time they each put in their input, decided what we’d wear and executed it with smiles on their faces and loads of laughs.   I love it so much!  It is the Walton family 2015!  Thank you so much to each and every one of you for another amazing year.  Merry Christmas and Happiest New Year to all of you!

Rainy Day Mini

Happy Spring!!  I love this time of year!  I’ve been confined to the studio setting all winter and it’s always refreshing and gets my creative juices flowing to be able to get outside.  I noticed this yellow tree on my way to the studio and it inspired this last minute mini session.  I don’t do many mini sessions, and they always sell out so I don’t see these lasting long.  I’m also trying this sign up thing for the first time so hopefully it goes smoothly.  I only have 10 slots available.  A fun umbrella, some rain boots and this gorgeous tree will be the perfect art for your walls!  I will send an invoice when I receive your sign up.  Payment holds your slot!   Sign up here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0b45a8ab2ea7fc1-rainy

 

Babies, Babies, Babies ~ Illinois Newborn Photographer

It’s been a new year full of babies 🙂  I haven’t shared newborn photos here on the blog for quite some time so I decided to grab several from some recent sessions to share.  I’ve had lots of incredible new clients this year.   One of my new dads carried a baby brush around in his back pocket to fix his little loves hair in between shooting.  So adorable.  It’s really an amazing experience to witness the love felt between parents and their new bundles.  Sometimes I’ll look over when shooting and see the biggest grins on their parents faces and I’m quite sure they don’t even realize their smiling from the inside out.   I consider myself blessed to be a part of their first days together.

We are anticipating a new baby boy this weekend.  Our Myla will have a brother 🙂   We can’t wait to get our hands on him and already have the perfect name picked out which I’ll share on Saturday when he comes home!  Besides a newborn baby’s head their is no sweeter smell than puppy breath…lol!  I hope you’re all having a great week!
