Diana & Tj are expecting ~ August, 2011

Like senior photography, I hadn't quite decided if I wanted to do maternity shots or not. So, when I got a request from a friend, I decided to give it a try. I had a great time doing this shot. I think I just may add maternity to my services offered. So, this is Diana & Tj. We did these at Citizen's Park in Barrington. This was half way between the both of us. I hadn't been there before, but it was pretty nice. There was one, unfortunate, drawback. It was FULL of mosquitoes. We got attacked!! Otherwise, it went very well. :) To see the complete session, please visit my Facebook page (& "like" it),

Meet Olivia....

Scouting my new location ~ August, 2011

I found a new place to shoot, & I LOVE it! Once again, my kids stood in as models, as you can tell by their attire & messy hair. :) If you are wondering where this wonder land is, make an appointment with me & find out. :)

Chase ~ Class of 2012

Last Saturday I did my first senior shot. I have been going back and forth, trying to decide if I wanted to do seniors. My session went so well, & was so much fun that I think I am officially going to take senior photography. Now, when I say "senior", I mean high school seniors. I thought I should clear that up b/c a friend of mine, who shall remain nameless (Mary), thought I meant senior citizens. So, before you have your grandparents call me for an appointment, I thought I should clear that up. ;) Here's a small sample from that shoot, &, as always, check out my Facebook page for complete albums. :)
