Traveling Wedding and Family Photographer Mini Shoots

Hello Illinois. These blogs are a part of a series for my yearly Illinois mini sessions. I started my business in Illinois 10 years ago and have so many faithful and wonderful clients that I make the trek back from Arizona and offer mini’s once a year.  I just love that my Illinois clients have followed me and invested in me year after year, regardless of the fact I have now been in Arizona for 4 years! Every year I post that I’m coming and check out dates everyone is available, and the slots almost always booked up full. I can begin to tell you how loved and honored I feel by this loyalty. So here I am again in the heat of July, shooting 11 families, seniors, and creatives. Thanks again to everyone, I’m thrilled to share these and I’ll see you all next summer!

Traveling Photographer Minis: Every Story Begins With Love

Traveling Wedding and Family Photographer Mini Shoots

Once again Molly made the trek from Peoria for another mini session with me. She’s so amazing. I am constantly shocked by how much she loves and supports my art. She even came to get shots of just the kiddos this time because David had one of my biggest golf tournaments that day and just couldn’t make it. That is serious dedication!

I also can’t believe how much bigger the kids are this year. How does it go so fast? I remember their wedding and Annabelle’s premie photos like it was yesterday. Suddenly it’s been 8 years since I came into Molly & David’s life.

See this is another reason I love weddings.

Every story begins with love. First couples find me for the engagement and wedding but then we become friends for life.

I get to be a part of all the best moments in their lives. Maternity, Newborns, Babies, Siblings. The story just keeps going. Even writing this post gets me a little teary-eyed with how grateful I am that all these clients are friends and dedicated to me. They repeat these minis with me year after year. Supporting me and my career and loving every precious memory I capture for them.

I am forever grateful Molly for your constant support, kind words, and most of all- your friendship. I’ll see if next year, if not before for an Arizona shoot.


On case, you have missed my last 10 posts on this couple & their family… Molly is a pediatrician and the best you’ll ever find! So if you are in the Peoria area and need a doctor for your kiddo you can find her here. She is incredibly gentle, an amazing listener, kind, and cares SO much about everything she does. However, she is so good she’s probably like never accepting new patients. lol. But it’s worth a try!
