Doug and Jena wed Saturday with a Christmas themed wedding. Their ceremony was held at River View church in Loves Park. they were really good sports about taking pictures outside. Especially since Jenas family is from Mississippi and they are not used to seeing ice chunks float down the water. They later went to the […]
Saturday morning I loaded my van. It felt as full as the red mans sleigh. Awaiting me in Winnebago was a gym full of familys. They had all come to see Santa and a variety of other craft vendors. The reaction of the kids was priceless. Some of the younger cried as moms tried to […]

Jax has learned how to crawl and almost how to stand on his own. He was all over the studio when his parents brought him over. He liked to come and crawl on top of my camera.

Parents will dress up their kids for holiday parties and then because they look so cute, bring them in for pictures. We took both full length and close ups. The color of her eyes just pops with the other colors in the portrait.
Calvin and Tanisha have come back 3 years in a row for their Christmas cards. This time we both got to talk about the surprises in our life. We all agreed we are done having kids.
I first met Chantelle 4 years ago when I did her familys portrait and brothers senior pictures. I saw this done with a movie cover and told her to bring her music to go along with the violin. The result is a multi-layered image to tell the story of her music.
Jenny and Chris wed at Anderson Gardens this week. It was neat to see how much fall color they had planted into the gardens that you would have thought would be all Japanese. There were more burning bushes than I would have expected. Their reception was then at the new Franchescos. If you haven’t been […]
