Altamont, IL Family Pictures :: Tate

It’s the best feeling in the world being trusted by a family to take their family pictures year after year. When I started doing family photography, my hope was that it wouldn’t be a one and done sort of thing. I wanted to be able to build relationships with families to photograph their family over the years. With the Tate’s …

Effingham, IL Family Pictures :: Allred

When we used to do traditional baby sessions, we typically did newborn, 6-9 month, and one year. Even after transitioning to lifestyle sessions, we kept this format for baby pictures. I’m not sure why, I guess I just figured that’s how I should do it. After doing Sidney’s newborn pictures, I told Amy and Jaron that the 6-9 month session …

Having the opportunity to continue to work with couples after their wedding day is seriously the best feeling on earth!

As we continue our transition of our family pictures toward lifestyle sessions, we had the opportunity to work with the couple who kicked off our wedding photography career.

Anytime that we have the opportunity to continue to work with people, it’s seriously the best feeling when it comes to being a business owner. To know that the pictures we took are not only cherished enough for them to come back but that they enjoyed working with us that much as well, it’s definitely pretty warming. Our relationship with …

Seems like just yesterday we were doing Finn’s newborn pictures. What a year it has been!! Watching Finn grow through pictures has been so much fun and quite an honor. I don’t take any session lightly. Whether it’s a wedding, senior pictures, baby or family pictures, they are all so important. I don’t want to just capture great pictures for …
