Family Mini Sessions | Nov. 8 in Champaign


Are you looking to get a few shots of your immediate family (and maybe your pets too?) for your 2015 holiday cards? Look no further than the Holly Birch Photography mini sessions (this is one of only a couple times per year that I offer family sessions!). For $175, you get a 15 minute session at a Champaign park (to be determined within the next couple weeks), an online gallery, and 3 high-resolution digital images of your choice with print release (so you can use them in your cards, holiday letters, print for your home or gifts, etc). To book, just text Holly at 217.737.0971 or email I can't wait to see you there!family pictures for holiday Christmas cards

Katie + Will | Urbana engagement photographer

When Katie + Will first came to meet with me about their wedding photography, there was much discussion about their canine friends, and how they would be involved in both the engagement photos and the wedding in some capacity. I am excited to meet Will's family's dog at the wedding next August! For now, I got to meet the couple's two Yorkies, and they were very well behaved, even though Meadowbrook Park is full of squirrels! Katie + Will are so sweet and easygoing together, and I'm very much looking forward to their wedding next summer!

Featured on Pretty Fluffy

You know what would be awesome? If winter was over and it would start to get warm around here again! I'm very tired of the single-degree digit days and would much rather have the sweltering heat of Illinois summers. You know where it is summer though? In Australia! And since January 26 is Australia Day, my friend Serena over (down?) at Pretty Fluffy in Sydney did a feature on Australian Shepherds that showcased some of my pet photography. And remember, even though I'm posting this on Jan. 25, it's already Jan. 26 down under! :) And since every blog post is better with a photo, here's another shot from that session (which was actually an engagement session that included Jessica & Dan's two lovable dogs)!
