The Hoene Family {Fine Art Photography, Effingham, Illinois}

  I know I always say this, but brace yourselves, I'm going to say it again, I LOVED this family!! I even loved the dog Dexter, but how couldn't I?  Just look at him.  He's like a real life cuddly bear. This is what I'd call an all American family: three awesome kids, a dog, a beautiful home and football on the television!!  I'm pretty sure the oldest is on his way to being a future sports all-star as well, or maybe he's already there?!  AND they were going to roast hotdogs and marshmallows after I left.  All American.

Thanks again to Aimee for having me and trusting me to capture your family as they are: loving, funny, quirky, silly, happy and even sad/mad. Yep, there were a few tears, but I would cry too if it could get me a Nutty Bar.

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.
