Equestrian saddle & tack shop | Lone Ass Leathers

I had the opportunity to take some photos for a local business to use for their website and marketing materials. If you are interested in horses and mules and live in Central IL, you should check out Lone Ass Leathers (link) (website designed by me)! Okay, okay - I confess - this business is near and dear to my heart because it belongs to my brother and sister-in-law, Josh & Laura Lohnes. They have a nice little shop located between Pekin, IL and Tremont, IL where they sell all types of equestrian needs (and other fun stuff like jewelry & purses!), they even have their own line of custom saddles! Not only do they sell new merchandise, they also typically have used saddles for sale, and they are even willing to do trades. Plus, they offer t-shirt screen printing, custom vinyl decals & lettering, custom leather work, and Josh even has a great business training horses and mules (and a full calendar plus waiting list to prove it)! I encourage anyone and everyone to stop by!

Baby Girl

Here is another familiar face! Miss Lily was back in the studio today for a quick baby/toddler photo session. And I do mean quick, as in SHE was quick...barely sitting still for even a full minute at a time! I really had to work for these shots, she sure kept me hopping, but I have to say that I am pleased with the photos that I did get. Here are a few images from Lily's toddler photo session!

Newborn photos

I'd like you to meet Miss Paislee! Her grandma has been a good friend of mine for years, so naturally, I've known Miss P's mom since she was just a little girl too...I've been trying to remember how old she was when I first met her and I'm thinking she was around 5 or so, I just don't know. However long it's been, I'm starting to feel old now! Ha!

Miss P is a doll, and I got to snuggle with her for a little bit during a break in her oh so fun newborn photo session. We took our time and tried to keep everyone happy, comfy, and relaxed...mission accomplished!

Congrats again Ashley, your daughter is precious and I can't wait to take more photos of her and to watch her grow up to become a beautiful young lady, just like her momma! <3

Dance Recital

Miss Brogan stopped by the studio today for dance recital photos! Her mom is a good friend of mine who wanted some additional photos of her little doll all dressed up. I thought the tap dance recital costume was ADORABLE, and Miss B is too! We had fun with these photos, we did a few posed shots and then let her have fun, dancing, spinning, giggling...just being a kid!

Maternity session | Central IL Photographer

I had the opportunity to do a quick maternity session recently. This beautiful momma is expecting her first baby (a girl)  in just a few short weeks and I can't wait! I've known this family for a very long time, so this session was special to me. I would love the opportunity to do more maternity sessions, they are such a special time in a woman's life and preserving these memories are very important.

One month old baby boy...

A recent session brought in a great couple and their one month old son. He's such a cutie! We did a quick mini-session and I hope to have a chance to photograph this little guy again in the future...I already mentioned to his mom that I'm always looking for more boy "models", so I hope she'll take me up on the offer. :)

Here are few from his one month baby boy & family session...

Sisters & one year photos

These beauties are my nieces. Lily will be turning one on Valentine's Day! And her big sister, Shelby, is five. I just recently got a new white backdrop that I was itching to try out and I couldn't think of a better models for a quick afternoon photo shoot!

A few of these images have a more vintage feel to them...I am in love!
