The Family Farm - Quad Cities Family Photographer

It was so cool to get to go out to this family's property to do their session.  We met at Grandma's farm...the house is not lived in, some of the barns were falling apart and it was all perfect for a photo shoot!  I loved it!

This is the 3rd time I hava had the pleasure of photographing the Temple Family...

I was excited to meet the extended family for this session...and it was GORGEOUS out!

Can you guess how old this beauty is?! :)

And this one is ALL 2...adorable girls!

This beauty was so good with the little girls and they loved her!


Thank you all for inviting me out to the property for the session!  It was perfect!  And THANK YOU for the beautiful flowers that are still blooming and gorgeous in my home!

The Mail Family Welcomes Everett - Quad Cities Newborn Photographer

I was so excited to meet Sweet Everett!  I photographed Carrie and Eric for their maternity session and they are just an awesome couple.  I was thrilled to be able to photograph their family and do Everett's newborn pictures!

How adorable are they?!

I love going into people's homes and doing lifestyle images for newborn sessions.  Often the time spent with an infant at home feels like forever, but when looking back, that time is fleeting.  So capturing every day moments to remember in pictures is so fun!

Those feet though.  I can't ever get enough of baby feet...cutest ever!

These first time parents were like pros.  Super laid back and relaxed!

Their calm nature made for a pretty calm and happy baby boy!


Thank you, Mail Family for inviting me into your home to capture the beauty of your new family.  I loved meeting your gorgeous baby boy and could have snuggled him all day!

Emilee ~ Class of 2017 - Quad Cities Senior Portrait Photographer

I can't get over how somehow, I get to photograph the most gorgeous seniors!  Emilee was a blast!  We laughed and chatted and she was amazing in front of the camera!  Seniors are becoming some of my most favorite sessions to do and it's all because of seniors like Emilee!

Emilee, it was such a pleasure to meet you and photograph you!  You are so sweet!  I know you will do great things with your future.  Enjoy this last year of high school and best wishes to you in all of your future endeavors!

Hannah ~ Class of 2017 - Quad Cities Senior Portrait Photographer

Hannah is stunning...I loved photographing her!

I was looking forward to photographing Hannah because I photographed her brother last year and he was super easy and fun to photograph as well.  When I stepped outside to go to my car, I noticed the raindrops on my windshield and the wet pavement.  I had no idea it was supposed to rain!  I decided to head out to meet Hannah anyway and as I drove, the rain got heavier.  When we met up at the park, we realized it wasn't going to happen in that moment...the rain was coming down.  We looked at the radar and decided to wait it out.  SO GLAD we did!  The weather ended up being perfect!

Like her brother, Hannah has many talents outside of her obvious beauty!



She is also, obviously very good in front of the camera!

Hannah is so sweet and smart and I thoroughly enjoyed my time with her!

Thank you, Hannah for spending some time with me and for waiting out the rain!  It was so great to meet you!  Have a great Senior year and best wishes as you enter the next chapter in your life. :)
