Newborn Baby Session ~ Southern Illinois Photographer (West Frankfort)

Boy was I excited to meet this little guy. I did their pregnancy announcement Fall 2016 and big brother was so adorable!

So I headed out to West Frankfort to meet little Madden.  We attempted a sibling shot and neither of the boys were very impressed with us.  So we let big brother go play while we got baby snug as a bug in a wrap.  He loved being wrapped.  He was so peaceful.

He just barely fit in my moses basket but it was perfect.   Below are just a few of my favorites from the session.

Old Fashioned Tea Party ~ Southern Illinois Photographer (Whittington)

I had bought this little table and chairs while we were in Branson antique shopping a little more than a year ago and had planned to do tea parties with it this spring.  Well the opportunity arose and I was able to have the session with these beautiful girls.  They came dressed so perfectly for an old fashioned tea party.

We did this session out at Wayne Fitzgerrell State Park in Whittington.

We came away with so many beautiful images from this session, I had a really hard time narrowing down what to show for the blog.    Below are just a few of my favorites.

Mommy and Me Session ~ Southern Illinois Photographer (Benton)

I really love my annual Mother’s Day/Mommy and Me special. This year was my 5th year doing these and I always love all the sweet photos of mommas and their kiddos.

This particular session was an awesome one.  This beautiful momma and her adorable kids were so much fun.  We played and laughed and came away with so many beautiful photos.  It was really hard to narrow down which ones to post here.

Below are just a few of my favorites and that sibling photo just melted everyone’s hearts. <3
