Olivia - Quad Cities Senior Portrait Photographer

This breathtaking senior was an absolute dream to have in front of my lens!  She cannot take a bad picture!  Unfortunately the sun went down, so I had to stop snapping. ;)  She is not only beautiful on the outside, but was so sweet too!  Her mom hung out with us and we just had a great time strolling around snapping pictures.  Senior sessions are one of my favorite things to do and somehow I always get the most awesome seniors!  This session was no different!

Check out the beautiful Olivia below!

Thank you for hanging out in front of my lens, Olivia!  I am so excited for you to see all of your images!  It was so hard to pick just a few to share because you are just so natural in front of the camera.  You made my job easy!  Best wishes to you as you complete your senior year!

Parker - Quad Cities Senior Portrait Photographer

Parker's Senior Session was so much fun.  Aside from the fact that he's just a handsome kid, his parents were also fun to hang out with and they were full of fun ideas that we tried.  I will say, it was the first time I've ever had anything lit on fire during a session before and it turned out really fun!  We had smoke bombs and even a couple of snafu's with the fire we used (oops!), but it was a great time and made for some really fun portraits!

Check out Parker's Sneaks below!

Thanks for putting up with the smoke and fire shenanigans and killing your senior session, Parker!  Can't wait for you to see all of the images!  Best wishes to you as you close this chapter of your life and start a new chapter in college!

Magnolia and Family - Quad Cities Newborn Photographer

This baby is LOVED.  And she is beautiful and laid back and so precious.  She is also joining the most awesome family!  The Helmly family is one of a kind.  To know them is to love them.  I am so blessed to have gotten to know them and capture in pictures some very precious times for them.  I was there when their first baby, Luc came into the world and was so thrilled when they not only asked me to capture their first daughter being born, but also to do her newborn pictures!  Any opportunity I get this crew in front of my lens is always a fun time!  This session was no different.  There was almost too much cuteness and love to even handle!

Check out sweet Magnolia Jean and her family below!

Thank you guys for being so awesome.  You are so fun to photograph, but also just so fun to know!  I can't wait for you to see all of your images from this busy morning! :)
