Illini Men's Basketball | Big Ten sports photography


It's been a couple years since I photographed any Illini sports, but I got the opportunity to get back on the court for two games this season. I'll also be back on the sidelines for the football Spring Game and 2 games this fall. This will be a good balance for me because it was hard to do every game with 2 young children at home, and a couple games per season is much more manageable! Plus, it's nice to keep the skillset up and not get too rusty. Enjoy! under the hoop basketball photos

Hannah | Mahomet-Seymour HS Senior | Ballet Dancer


I met Hannah's parents at the Mahomet Sangamon River Festival at the end of August. They came up to my booth, seemingly very interested in my work and asked if I did senior pictures. I happily told them I do, and then asked when their son or daughter graduates from high school. I was pleased when they said she was a 2015 senior and would need the photos pretty soon since her senior year had just gotten underway. They called me shortly thereafter to book her session, and the rest is history! I am so pumped about how these turned out! When we were planning the session and they told me that Hannah is a ballet dancer, my mind started racing with the possibilities. The silhouette was one of our first decisions, and I of course had to throw in some flash. Hannah said that her little sister calls her a hippie, so we had to do a couple photos that were a nod to that. :) I also love the outfit & location combinations we came up with. Thanks for a great session, Hannah, and best of luck with your senior year at Mahomet-Seymour High School! senior ballet dancer
