I loved this session. Grandparents with all their grandbabies. I really loved playing with each of the kids and coaxing out their personalities. We had fun playing and letting them each give me 'Five' as hard as they could (OUCH! Some of them have quite a slap LOL)
Playing and interacting with kids like they are my nieces and nephews and then spoiling them with a treat after is one of the best perks of my work :-)
This family is just such a blast to work with!
This was our second session together and the girls are cuter than ever.
We did their session at a very unique and special location. Can anyone guess where we are?
It was such a beautiful day for this amazing family!
I adore this woman! Mary was my midwife for the birth of both of my children and she is one of the most compassionate and kind human beings I have ever met!
We did a session with her husband, Greg, Mary's 3 adult children and all their children. What a spirited group this was. Lots of laughing!
We did the session in their yard as well as across the street by the Pekin Lagoon since it has a lot of meaning for them.
What a beautiful group!
Jamie won a gift certificate I donated to the Small Wonders Miracle Walk. Being as one of their children was a preemie we connected right away because I also have a preemie. The morning of their session was very, very cold but you can’t tell from the pictures or the smiles. I had the kids running around to stay warm and jumping up and down. We got so many good images it was hard to choose. I know that sometimes having a portrait of your children done can be very stressful but being able to see how Blissful Images can capture your children perfectly is all worth it.
This extended family grouping was such a great session! Lots of smiles even in the chilly weather.
We met at a park near Canton and I just love new locations! The colors were really pretty and we got a lot of excellent images!
This session was so perfect.
Mom tries to have their portrait taken annually and when she told me how much she liked old buildings I knew the Peoria warehouse district was the perfect spot!
You can really tell how much love these two have for each other.
Keegan was joking and making us laugh the entire time and I imagine that is what their family does all the time with him around. What an adorable character he is!
So much sparkle and joy in his eyes. I smile every time I look at him!
This family session was taken at one of my favorite locations in the area. The colors were at their absolute peak this day! Everyone did a great job and their fun and loving personalities really came out during the session. I laughed a lot at this fun group!
How adorable is this little lady! She did wonderful for her session. It was such a beautiful fall day we did a lot of her session outdoors at Grandma's house. The most perfect leaves I have ever seen were scattered all over the back yard. She just makes me sigh 'Awwww'
Cassandra scheduled her family portraits with me last year and we really hit it off. Dare I say 'clicked' Haha
Early fall of this year I had a contest and the winner received a $500 Blissful Images credit. The winner was Cassandra!
I was overjoyed to work with her wonderful family again and love the album we created! Repeat clients are AWESOME!!!
The Dries family wanted to have their family portrait done in their yard. Mom and Dad even carried the couch into the yard so that we could do a few with that as a prop. What a fun idea! My very favorite portrait was taken about half a block from their home. I asked them all to just show me a post and everyone looked absolutely fantastic. This is one of my favorite portraits I have ever taken and I am so happy their family enjoyed it as much as I do.
