Christian Barger/Senior Session/Geneva High School

I had a great time with Christian on his recent senior session! Christian just started his senior year at Geneva High School, where he will finish out his last season as a member of the Vikings football team.  Most boys aren’t very excited about their senior pictures, but Christian was a natural in front of the camera! His mom joined us on the shoot and was able to get him laughing and relaxed, which made for great pictures. Thanks for choosing me for your senior pictures, have a great senior year!

Jill & Nate/Getting Married!/Rocheport, MO

I met Jill nearly four years ago. We were freshmen that had just gotten bids to Zeta Tau Alpha at Mizzou, excited by what the next four years may hold. With graduation quickly approaching, it feels as though with the blink of an eye, we’ve gone from timid college freshman to confident young adults ready to take on the world outside of these hallowed halls. Luckily for Jill, she’ll be entering into that world with her wonderful fiancé, Nate, by her side. These two have been together for six years, and he popped the question this winter in the beautiful mountains of Colorado! I am so grateful to have been a part of their engagement, and for the beautiful day we had shooting in Rocheport, MO! Good luck to you both, you’re amazing!

Lea & Siri/2013 Holidays/Batavia, IL

Every year I do a short shoot with my two favorite models, Lea and Siri, for their Christmas card. It may have been cold outside, but they kept smiling! This year we did their mini shoot on River St. in Batavia, IL. Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot!


Lea & Siri/Just For Fun/Geneva, IL

Lea and Siri are my cousins and two of my favorite models. Inspiried by their favorite summer accessory, the floral headband, my aunt and I decided to set up a laid back and fun photo shoot. I think they’re starting to get sick of being my go to models, but I don’t see that changing any time soon! They take after their dad with fair skin, blond hair and big blue eyes that reflect light beautifully. Here are a few of my favorites from this session!


Margo Hess/High School Senior/Wheaton, IL

I had the privilege of shooting with Margo on a perfect summer night in July on St. James Farm in Wheaton, IL. Margo was a wonderful model, instantly at ease in front of the camera. She will be a senior at Geneva High School this fall which a bright future ahead of her! Good luck this year Margo!
