Children’s Photography: A.

“Baby A.” from two years ago is a baby no longer!  And what better way to celebrate her second birthday than some pictures in the park?  🙂

Wedding Photography: J. and L.

A beautiful wedding in the courthouse!  A couple of weeks ago I got to photograph J. and L.’s courthouse wedding in downtown St. Charles.  It was something new for me … I had never photographed a wedding quite like it, and I enjoyed every minute!  ❤

What a beautiful couple!

College graduation season is upon us!

Senior Photography: A.

There’s NO WAY I’m old enough to be taking Senior pictures for the kids I had in my music class when they were kindergarteners!  And yet … here we are.  😉

I had a great time reconnecting with A. after all these years!

A. is super talented!  I got to see some of his tennis moves during our photo session.  (I confess, I know next to nothing about sports, but I was very impressed!)
