Online Gallery!

Hi everyone! I realized last night that I haven't posted on here in a long time and yes, I'm still providing photography. I just an using another site to display my work which is easier for me to upload multiple images (all session images for clients) and they're displayed so nicely!

I wanted to let you know that you can view all of my work, which is updated after each session, over here at my online gallery site. I've also pasted the link below.

Please visit me and often!! Thank you.

Contact me today to book YOUR next session. I look forward to capturing your memories. :)

I Heart Faces Challenge

I wanted to enter this photo for the I Heart Faces challenge, and I know it's a long shot, but it was just an impromptu photo I took of my son last week when he was very serious about reading before bed. He got out some of his favorite books and I just loved how intense he looked trying to figure out the story.

Thanks for stopping by :)

Little Angels Gala | September 17, 2011 | Sanfilippo Estate

I had the distinct pleasure of being asked to take photographs at the Sanfilippo Estate this past Saturday for an event being held there for Little Angels. It was beautiful, breath taking and exciting to say the least.

If you haven't heard of Little Angels, it is a loving home for children and young adults with severe disabilities and complex medical needs. It is a state-of-the-art facility offering round-the-clock skilled nursing, therapeutic and habilitation services in a warm and caring environment. It was founded in 1958 by Elgin residents, Pat and Bob Wasmond. Little Angels may not be a home in the traditional sense, but it does provide the most important aspects that make a home - love, care and support.

They are located in Elgin, Illinois. You can learn more about Little Angels at

Here is a link for the images if you would like to view them and/or place an order for prints. The password for the gallery is littleangels. You will need that to enter the gallery.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the prints will go to Little Angels. I felt honored a great organization like this chose me to partake in this event, and this is a small way I can give back to them. 

You may also view the images on Facebook as well:

the simple things

The idea behind Rebecca Cooper's blog is that you take photos of the simple things. Things that may be ordinary, but I'm certain that when I look back on them, they will be anything but ordinary to me. They will invoke a memory. And that is what matters :) I hope you like my simple photo! I have plenty more simple photos I'd love to share with you, so stay tuned!!!

Thanks for stopping by.

Larson Family | Woodstock, IL

Tiffany is a client-from-work turned friend and I am so glad I met her and got to know her...and her family. She has three adorable, sassy, mischievous little girls that you wouldn't believe some of the things I've heard them do by looking at their sweet faces in these pics. They are all so adorable and were so much fun. It was my honor to photograph all of them. This lil' happy fam of 5 :)

These images were shot at her husband's parents house in Woodstock, IL on their property. Just gorgeous and so many little areas to look at! She is going to be framing selected images to present to them as a wedding anniversary gift in September, so I'm anxious to see which pictures she chose!

You can always visit my Facebook page to view all the images from this shoot as well as the images in black and white, color and the alternate color option I gave to her.
