I had the honor of photographing this sweet family last weekend! Emma said they hadn't had family pictures taken since Lilly was little. She just graduated from high school the day before so this was a big deal lol. Here are some highlights from their session... :)
Beautiful Layla Rey came into this wonderful world at 7:51 AM on May 2, 2017. She was 9 pounds 15 ounces and 20.25 inches long. Layla came to see me on Saturday, and she was such a doll baby! She has gorgeous big blue eyes and a contagious little smile. At 11 days old, she didn't want to stay asleep for her photo session (she didn't want to miss out on anything good), but she was such a good baby! Here are some highlights from her session... :)
If you follow my Facebook page or my blog, you know Miss Kaitlyn wanted to divide her senior pictures up seasonally - we got through the first three seasons (spring, summer, fall) but we never really had a winter! That's Southern Illinois for you lol. She asked if I would take some pictures of her and her boyfriend, Cord, before they went to prom instead. And of course I agreed - I love them both! Here are some highlights of their prom session! They both looked so nice all dressed up! :)
This year we all braved the rain and the flooding to make it to this year's prom. I kept my fingers crossed and said a little prayer all the girls could get in before the rain hit (yes I'm a girl so I worry about their hair lol). Luckily it all worked out, and we got everybody in safe and sound before the rain started up again. This year's theme was "Wonderland" (from Alice Through the Looking Glass). This was such a fun theme to put together! The Student Council did an amazing job, and I was so glad I got to help out and be a part of it. I love getting to see the kids all dressed up and having a good time! Here are some highlights from the kids' big night...
