Ella is the daughter of one of my best friends for the past 10 years! So naturally I was excited she asked me to photograph her sweet little lady when she arrived. I loaded up my husband can we went to our hometown of Rockford, IL for a weekend of sessions and family.
A fun little fact about Miss Ella, she was born on 8.15.17 which is kind of a big deal in the Rockford Area since (815) is the Area Code and the city has declared a local holiday in honor of (815) day! - How cool is that? she is one of the Rockford 815 Babies!
When Mommy is a Hair Stylist...this is a must!
I was so honored when Tiffany asked me to capture her and Caylob's special day. I have captured many wonderful milestones for the Thompson couple. Their maternity photos for their first child together, their daughters newborn and first year photos and now their wedding day. I was absolutely overjoyed to capture Tiffany & Caylob's wedding at Oak Knoll Ranch. It was a perfect day that was perfectly suited to who they are as a couple.
A big red barn was the absolute perfect setting for Caylob & Tiffany's Rustic Chic wedding. Caylob is a true country boy born and raised in Texas and Tiffany is a city girl who fell for a country boy and the rest is history.
Oak Knoll Ranch has a new Chapel for a beautiful ceremony space! I loved working with the rich woods and the chevron pattern to the wood floor was such a unique feature I just had to capture it!
The girls arrived early to the Bridal suite and spend the morning handing out and getting ready. While the guys hung back a bit and relaxed at the B&B up the road from the ranch.
The best man provided some comic relieve at the expense of the Bride's perfect ceremony. His brand new shirt pocket had a hole on the inside. When it came time to exchange the rings the best man could not find the rings anywhere. Luckily Tiffany's dad was able to retrace his steps quickly and found the ring. For a happily every after!
& For the first time Mr. & Mrs. Caylob Thompson.
Hudson's Grow With Me photos are my favorite - Look how much he has grown!
Hudson's daddy is in the Army and we have been doing these same shots since he was a newborn
May was the month of the Multiples at BEP. I worked with so many twins and triplets and I loved every minute of it! Katherine and Avery were such a blast. They are at the perfect age for a milestone session.
At 6 months babies make great eye contact, they coo and giggle while staying in place for some adorable sitting photos and laying down shots.
Meet Katherine and Avery!
