East Peoria Children’s Photography ~ Blankie

My daughter has loved this blanket since she was new! It’s her blankie, the one she drags with us everywhere, the one she has to have to fall asleep. It gets a bleach wash once a week and I have to sneak it away at nap time. Her great-grandma gave it to her when she was born. She was named after her great-grandma so I’m glad of all the blankies she could have chosen to be her security blanket, she chose this one.  It’s a big part of her childhood.  I wish I had photos of me with my blankie.  I’m going to print this to hang in her room. 

These were shot using window light…my favorite light! 

Illinois Children’s Photography ~ The Oldest 2

I’ve know these two since, well, before they were born.  I can’t believe how much they’ve grown.  They are absolutely beautiful inside and out.  I know their mom and dad are quite proud of them.  It feels really good to be able to give them beautiful images to hang in their home.  I look at some of my images from way back when that are STILL hanging on their walls and just cringe.  PLEASE, please take those down now!  It just goes to show that it takes more than just a nice camera to create beautiful portraiture.  Good thing I wasn’t charging them…Yikes!  Anyway, thanks “S” family for hangin in there with me!
