The Bales Family - Arcola, IL Children and Family Photographer

These two beauties were double the fun for this shoot! So adorable and eager to pose for me when I asked!!

Here is the whole family!!  These are the seats at the ball field of Lake Land College and Dad just happened to play ball here a couple of years ago!!

We were behind the college on a weekend so there was no traffic!  The kids were excited to sit in the road and pose for me!!  I made sure they knew NEVER to do this under normal circumstances!!  LOL!

I really like the construction of this very cool bridge!  It made the perfect spot to capture these awesome kids!!  Yes, I had to get down on my belly to get the shot!!  LOL!  It was very easy to get down but oh so hard to get back up!!

Well, that wraps up this update!!  If you are in need of a photographer just go to my contact tab and shoot me an email!  Have camera, will travel!!

Kayla & Jordan - Engagement Session

I was offered a new location to shoot at recently by the owner of the MOST beautiful piece of property I have ever seen!! 2 ponds (one with a fountain), a creek, a bridge and a cabin all surrounded by trees, flowers and green grass!! I fell in love so it was only appropriate to use it for an engagement shoot!

Kayla and Jordan were awesome to work with and so much fun!

Don't you just love this last one!!  It is one of my favorites of all time!  So stinkin' sweet!!

A Couple of Cool Dudes!

These handsome guys belong to an old friend of mine!  She and I used to run around together!  We never got into trouble at all (LOL)!!  Anyway, she contacted me to photograph her 8th grade boys and I really was not sure what to expect from these two but we had a great time!

Lots more sessions to post as I get them done but right now it is time to relax for a while!!
