Central Illinois Family Photographer_0022

You guys, I just LOVE it when family’s with older children do sessions!! It isn’t as common at all, and I get it. Life get’s busy, the kids aren’t as squishy and cuddly anymore…but it is still so important to document your families when your kids are older too!  I met this lovely family on their farm a couple of weeks ago on a cold and windy day. But they were total champs!  I had so much fun watching them interact together.  Watching Stacey and Greg watch their almost grown children with such great entertainment, and for good reason!  Hannah is pretty reserved and sweet. But her brothers are quite different- outgoing, and definitely comedians, they all had such a fun dynamic together.  And Stacey–you styled everyone WONDERFULLY, I love these outfits!! Meet the S family:

You're in the right place!  As a past high school teacher, educating others is my life's work and a HUGE part of my business!  I have been teaching moms and hobbyists how to use their camera from first purchasing it all the way to coaching them into businesses of their own, and I'd love to help you as well, wherever you are (and whatever camera you have!).

I'm so glad you are here!  Teaching Photographers and other small business owners how to run more joyful, successful, and profitable businesses is one of my favorite parts of my business!  I specialize in working with photographers to make their goals a reality (or figure out what their goals should be in the first place!).
