New Baby Soon! {Fine Art Photography, Lake Sara, Effingham Illinois}

  Had a lovely maternity shoot this week at Lake Sara.  Believe it or not, soon to be new mommy Erica is nine months pregnant.  Yes, you heard me correctly, NINE MONTHS!!  Umm, I'm pretty sure I looked about that size when I was say......four or five months.  She is one of those pregnant women other pregnant women love to hate!  You just can't though.  She's the sweetest person ever.  It just oozes out of her. Let me put it this way, she gave me a piece of the most delicious strawberry pie EVER before I left.  Unfortunately I only got two bites in before my husband had his way with it.  And I'm fairly certain she baked it herself.  You want to hate her even more now don't you?

Good luck Erica and Chet.  In a few short weeks your world  is going to be rocked!!

Oh, and sorry about your tree. It jumped right out in front of me when I was backing out. Don't worry, it's not hurt, just probably scared a bit.

I am a self taught, natural light photographer, with sixteen years of shooting experience under my belt. Back in the day, I learned to shoot with film, developed it and printed my own photos in my darkroom. I've since moved to digital, but film holds a very dear spot in my heart that I just can't seem to shake. I was supposed to be a horticulturalist and landscape least that's what my degree's tell me. I followed that path for some time, along with a few other paths, but photography won my heart. Plants and beautiful mother nature is, and will always be, a great inspiration to me. If at all possible, I prefer to shoot outdoors and somehow incorporate nature into the scene. I'm originally from the Watson, Illinois area, but the majority of my adult life I spent living in the Cayman Islands and only moved home to Illinois with my husband and son a few short years ago. I grew up on a small working farm, with acres and acres of natural areas at my disposal. It gave me a great appreciation for the world around me. I roamed wherever I pleased, built forts in the woods, picked wildflowers in the pasture and caught craw-daddies in the crick. My son is taking over the jobs of fort building and craw-daddy hunting, but I'll never give up the picking of wildflowers.
