Calla really wanted a fall engagement session and I just did not want to disappoint her. Two days before their session was scheduled we got slammed with a snow storm. I thought for sure we would finally lose the last bit of leaves and she would have to settle for winter only. We postponed a […]

Olivia and Brayden’s engagement session was so special. I got to photograph them on the property where they will be holding their wedding ceremony and eventually one day building their dream home! These two fit so perfectly together, and I just loved getting to know them both! Olivia and Brayden have known each other since […]

Lizzy and Daniel are the cutest couple ever! Lizzy came to their session a little nervous about being in photos, but she found the cutests outfits and once I got her cuddling up with Daniel, and Lizzy got him laughing, they both just opened up perfectly! I just loved all of the personality I got […]

Katie was a bridesmaid in a wedding I shot a few years ago (hey Bree and James!!) and I always remember her being so sweet and helpful. So I was so excited when she reached out to me about photographing her and Matt’s wedding! Katie and Matt have been friends since high school, they lost […]

We tried for a Fall engagement session for Rob and Amanda but instead it ended up being about 80 degrees. Regardless, it was so much fun working with them and capturing their love! Their sweet puppy Zeus joined in and totally stole the show! I had first met Rob in a networking group when he […]

I had so much fun running around Springfield with Kalea and Jordan for their engagement session! These two both grew up in the area and love all things about their city, so I loved capturing them in it! Kalea is such a bubbly, energetic person with a big heart and Jordan is so outgoing and […]

Michelle and Charles grew up just 30 miles away from each other, but they didn’t meet until college on Michelle first night of her freshman year at the University of Illinois. Charles was a year in already and the perfect gentlemen to show Michelle around campus. They bonded over a love for the outdoors and […]
