Class of 2030 Pre-K Grad Session ~ Southern Illinois Photographer (Benton)

Miss Ainsley came to me for a Pre K Graduation Session at Benton Park.  I did these in 2014, I think, and decided to revisit them this year.  I love using the colorful playground equipment as a backdrop for these sessions.  This was such a fun one.

Hard to fathom the kiddos graduating Preschool this year are the class of 2030!

Southern Illinois Photographer (Raleigh) ~ Extended Family Session by the Pond

I have had the privilege of being invited out to this families property numerous for sessions.  I have photographed Angela and her husband, her grown children and many of her grand children.  This time they brought along their parents.  We had the session down by their pond and it was kind of a chilly evening.  We came away with some wonderful memories.  Below are just a few of my favorites from the session.

Beautiful Family Session with Newborn ~ Southern Illinois Photographer (Benton)

I had a wonderful session with this family out at the tall pines near Benton lake.  They needed some updated photos that included their adorable newborn baby boy.  Everyone was so over the moon for him.  I just love the ones that have baby with mom and dad and the one with his big sisters.   We came away with so many great memories captured.
