Becky & Jeremy: 6/26/10

Becky and I go way back......back to high school and the Spirit of Hononegah. We reconnected through Facebook when I read that she was in need of a photographer. I reached out to help and the rest is history. When first meeting with Becky & Jeremy, the only thing they said they wanted was at least one good picture to hang on their wall. Well, I think we did a little better than that. Becky & Jeremy, thanks for letting us be part of your wedding. We wish you nothing but the best!

Dylan Shimp: 2 years

Let me tell you how much I love this kid. It was so much fun to follow Dylan around. He was such a good sport, even after he had a slight run in with the slide. We were amazed at how cute and smart he is. Dain even said to me on the way home, "I would have kids if I knew they would be as cute and as smart as Dylan." Of course that is due to his wonderful parents, Kelly and Brian. I have known Kelly since we were on the high school dance team together and she also happens to be my hair dresser. Slight plug for Images Hair & Nail Studio in Loves Park :) Thanks Kelly & Brian for having such a cute kid for us to photograph! Can't wait to watch him grow up......he will for sure be a hit with the ladies!

Zada & Finn Sinclair

Denise contacted me and wanted to set up a family session. But her husband Stu couldn't make it down so we decided to go ahead and do a session of just the kids instead. OH BOY were we in for a treat. At first Zada barely wanted anything to do with the camera, but after we gave her the pink sparkly "Z" we got her to do pretty much anything! I'm really glad to finally have the chance to use some of my new props and I love sessions were we just follow the kids around......or in Finn's case.......just keep snapping pictures. We took SO many pictures of these two that it was hard to decide what to this is an extra long post. Here are just a few of our favorites from our session at Sugar River Forest Preserve. Can't wait to do their family portraits later this year. Enjoy!
