Funks Grove Glamour Shoot {Bloomington, IL Photographer}

When you hear the term “glamour shoot”, your mind probably wanders back twenty years ago to big, teased crunchy hair, purple eyeshadow, bright pink cheeks and bad lighting. Today’s glamour is contemporary, fashion-oriented and editorial inspired. But the motive behind it is still the same. Women want to feel beautiful and desirable. Women want time out to be pampered, fawned over and feel like a model for a day. It doesn’t matter what age you are or if you have kids or not-today’s woman leads a hectic, busy life and needs time-out to focus on herself.

Like myself, most women aren’t in as many family snapshots because they feel they aren’t photogenic, not thin enough or *insert other excuse*…

It REALLY breaks my heart and gets me going when I hear that a woman has been photographed by a “professional” photographer and hated how she looked in her portraits. Let me tell you right now-that photographer didn’t deserve to take your portraits. My business model is rooted in self-love. My one objective is to give my clients the most stunningly gorgeous portraits of themselves that they have ever had taken. And you’re probably saying to yourself, “but what if I don’t like them? Will I still have to meet a minimum purchase?”


If you don’t like your portraits, then I have failed at my job. I don’t require a minimum purchase. You purchase what you love. During your consultation, I’ll provide you with real examples of all my products so you can actually hold a finished piece of work in your hands. You will have my full price list and as well as your payment options (I do offer payment plans), so when the time comes for your premiere ordering session, you will be able to relax, enjoy a nice drink and dessert, and view your stunning portraits.

New Site, finally! {Bloomington, IL Portrait Photographer}

*phew* I really underestimated the time it would take to completely redesign a new site with two kiddos constantly vying for my attention all day 😉 I was really starting to resent staying up until 1am working on this, but now that it’s done, it was totally worth it! Thank you to everyone who has waited patiently for my new site to be up and running. There will still be a few minor changes as I’m adapting to this new interface (LOVING ProPhoto so far!!).

My hope for this blog/site is that you come here to find inspiration. I’ll be blogging the best photos from my sessions along with posts on tips for clothing, makeup, props and anything else that can help you prepare and inspire you for your own session!

To view my work, click the “portfolio” tab at the top of the homepage. For inquiries, please email me at and I’ll email you a PDF of pure awesomeness on what my sessions are all about  🙂

Much love,
