Eliot’s 5th Birthday Party ~ Southern Illinois Photography (Marion)

This is the 3rd year I have photographed Eliot’s Birthday Party. This year he turned 5 and had a Snoopy themed party.  The party was full of laughs, fun and playing with all of his friends.

I took an enormous amount of photos and cant possibly share them all but below are a few of my favorites.

Beautiful Family Session at Benton Lake ~ Southern Illinois Photographer

I used to go to church with this beautiful family years ago. Long before I ever even considered photography.

I was excited when mom contacted me about a session this February. They actually brought their sweet foster children with them too however I can’t show any photos with their faces. This session was just awesome though!

To see these children all grown up when I had taught the oldest and I think the second oldest in 3rd grade Sunday School class was like a trip down memory lane.

Below are just a few of my favorites and of course only a small portion of the session.

Newborn Baby Girl ~ Southern Illinois Photographer (West Frankfort)

I had such a great session with this sweet baby girl. When I got there momma said she had been fussy  but it didn’t take to long for me to get her to sleep. (thankful for the baby shooshing app on my phone)  She slept so sweetly for most of the session until the end.  But we got some many beautiful photos and even was able to get a couple specific photos her momma wanted.

Below are just a few of my favorites!  Who am I kidding the whole session was my favorite <3
