Kewanee IL Child & Family Photographer | Rieker Fam

I just love this little family! I shouldn't say little......they are expanding rapidly! I've done 2 pregnancy announcements for them and in case you missed the last one......they're currently expecting twins! I had a lot of fun following their oldest, who is still under 2 years old, around his farm. He definitely runs the place. He knew all sorts of little shortcuts to get away from me but I kept up and got some super cute shots of him in his element. Congratulations to your adorable family and thank you for once again trusting me with your life moments!

Kewanee IL Wedding Photographer | Megan & Chris

How adorable are these two?! I had a lot of fun with them. Megan is so sweet and kind and in love. She adores her man and he adores her too. I'm really looking forward to their wedding next year. It will be a lot of fun and now that they know what they're in for with me....they'll have that much more fun!!! Congratulations Megan and Chris.

Kewanee IL Child & Family Photographer | More of my Peeps

I just love taking photos of the same people over and over. It's so amazing to see how much they grow! Especially when they are part of your family. I just love seeing Baby Aubree, my youngest niece, she is getting so big and smiley. She has the best and bluest eyes that I just love and the sweetest little Cabbage Patch Doll face. I cannot wait to spend some down time with all my favorite peeps this Holiday season. I love you all.

Kewanee IL Child & Family Photographer | My Peeps

What can I say about these people? They are some of my favorite people. My brother and I go all the way back to the beginning (that was supposed to be a joke....a bad one I know, but it's what I do). I love them all very much and have used them time and time again as models/guinea pigs/practice....lucky them! Thank you and I love you all!

*small disclaimer: Izzi really is that grossed out by her parents smooching. Didn't have to coax those awesome grossed out faces from her!

Kewanee IL Wedding Photographer | Welcome to the Family

I was very touched when my brother-in-law and his fiance chose me to do their wedding photos.....they didn't have to! I was thrilled to be part of a such a special day for our family. My husband was the best man and our son was a very loud and rowdy ring bearer. We loved the whole crazy experience. The ceremony was gorgeous! It was at the Quad City Botanical Garden, thanks to Heather's boss taking pity on the what would have been very cold and potentially rainy outdoor ceremony! It was such a stunning setting for a wedding. I loved it. The bride was glowing and beautiful and the reception was a blast. Not often does the photographer get to sit down and eat a big meal and have some drinks while "on the clock". It was a very enjoyable day.

We greatly appreciate you both including us all in your day. It was such a wonderful experience. I wish you nothing but the best of luck in your future and all the happiness in the world! We love you both.
