The McLeod Family - Quad Cities Family Photographer

I have known these 2 for years.  We went to the same high school and I cannot remember a time that they weren't together.  They have definitely withstood the test of time and grown an incredibly amazing family through the years.  Erin was a boy mom for so long having Gavin, then Cooper, then Quinn, then Beckham, then Lincoln and just a few months ago she had a daughter Leira.  I feel bad for any boy who tries to date Liera someday with 5 doting brothers who adore her and will protect her!  She is one blessed girl and these are two very blessed parents to have such incredible children!  I love photographing their ever growing family...they also make some seriously adorable children!

Mason ~ 6 Days New - Quad Cities Newborn Lifestyle Photographer

I had such a lovely morning with this gorgeous family last week!  Their boys are adorable and my camera loved them!  Sweet Mason had just joined their family only 6 days before this session and you can already tell that he and his big brother, Liam are going to be the best of friends!  Brothers are just the BEST!  This family was so sweet and laid back and we had fun just capturing them as they are...loving and fun!  It was nice to focus in on Liam a bit as well because he had just turned 3 the day before our session!

Enjoy this sneak of the Hall Family!

Thank you so much for inviting me into your home to capture your memories.  You have such a gorgeous family and it was a pleasure to have you in front of my lens!  I cannot wait for you to see your entire gallery!  Have a Happy 1st Thanksgiving as a family of four!!!

The McDonnell Family - Quad Cities Family Photographer

We are neighbors with this lovely family whom we met a couple of months ago.  It's been so fun to meet all of our amazing neighbors since recently moving into our new home.  Camille and I hit it off in our first meeting.  We talked dogs and she pretty much talked me into getting one (best decision ever!).  Ha.  I was thrilled to find out they were adding to their family and even more thrilled when she asked me to photograph them!  Camille has had some challenges with this pregnancy and so I am so happy we got these pictures when we did.  She has been on bed rest and was hoping she would still be pregnant for our session.  So happy to report that she is STILL pregnant even a week later and hoping to let sweet Ellie cook for as long as possible!

Fast forward to the day before their session.  Because she is on bed rest and it was to be about 100 degrees below zero, we opted to do the session at their home and in their back yard...which is literally about 100 feet from our house.  So she decided to invite me over the morning before their session to scope out their home and yard.  We ended up chatting for hours and before we knew it, we were eating lunch together and chatting some more!  So glad to be able to call her not only my client, but now my friend.  And from what I know about Ryan, I'm pretty sure he and my husband would get along great too! :)  And Johnny is just about the cutest little guy around!  Oh my!

I love how many amazing neighbors I've met and gotten to photograph!
