Kewanee IL Child & Family Photographer | A & A

Boy Boy Boy Boy Boy! These two little boys are such......boys! They were just too busy being boys to sit and take a portrait. But I loved it. They played football, chased each other, did a little beating up on each other, found bugs and turned into super heroes! The second they turned into super heroes, they captured my heart. I am a sucker for it. Even though they wouldn't sit still long I think what I was able to capture are some pretty special moments and how much fun it is to be a little boy. Thank you so much.

Kewanee IL Child & Family Photograhper | Mitchell Family

These two beyond darling little girls were some of my first non-related practice models. They helped me get some practice and are still just as cute as can be! This time around I felt more confident with more experience and they were just so sweet. They were having a blast running around with their parents and you could tell how in love with each other this family is. Mom and Dad are a great example of how staying calm and not trying to force a picture can make for some amazing moments. I had a lot of fun with them and I could not be happier with the results. Thank you for giving me some practice back then and thank you for coming back a year later!

Kewanee IL Photographer | Amy & G

Every time I say their names, in my head I sing "Amy and G sitting in a tree". I don't know why.....I guess it's just because they are just too in love! Now Amy is originally from Kewanee but moved away and married.....sorry I didn't get her detailed life story! But she contacted me about photos because she was coming back for my brother-in-law's wedding. She went on to tell me that she and her husband of 6 years (I think) have never had their photos taken! I was shocked. I am the queen of avoiding getting mine taken but my life milestones are documented. They don't even have wedding "photos". They said they had a small wedding at a b&b and the owners were their witnesses. It sounded very romantic, something you read about in books. But it was high time they got their faces on some film....er....hi-res digital file! I was touched to be chosen to provide that. Thank you so much Amy & G......sitting in a tree.
