Uber-Awesome Clones and A$$ Kickin' {Fine Art Photography, Effingham, Illinois}

  I get the best people to photograph!!!  If you know John and Christy and their little mini-me's (seriously, just look at them.....little clones, but not in a creepy way) I bet you love them. I'm pretty certain I want to apply to be their new best friend. If only I knew where to get an application. Basically, they're just awesome......I may even go so far as to call them uber-awesome. And if you disagree with me, I may have to have Christy kick your a$$!!!  (Inside joke, but you'll get it once you look at the photos)

It was HOT the day of the session. HOT. I have an extremely high tolerance for heat too, so it takes a lot for me to moan about the heat.  I love to be warm and toasty at all times, but this was in the thick of the heat wave. The only thing to do was get the water slide and the popsicles out.  Unfortunately for me, I didn't bring my bathing suit.  Boo.

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 architect...at 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.
