Senior Photography {Fine Art Photography, Effingham, Illinois}


This is the first senior session I've done and I think it worked out pretty well.  This lovely girl came up from Clay City (Go Wolves!!) It was kind of a last minute decision to even get senior photos done and I'm thankful she decided on me.

Have times changed since I got my senior photos!  I vaguely remember sitting on a rug covered box, in a small windowless studio that smelled of mothballs, with my chin uncomfortable perched on my clenched sweaty fist.  Oh, and did I mention I had a perm and a turtleneck sweater on?  Yeah, it doesn't paint a very pretty picture does it? Oh my, I just laughed out loud to myself!

I know I have waaaaaay to many photos up on this post but there were so many I liked I couldn't stop myself!

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.
