Beautiful Family (and Engagement!) Session at Lincoln Memorial Gardens

It is so obvious that these two are bonkers about each other — and their beautiful little boy. Can’t wait to photograph their backyard wedding in September!

Stay Little Valentine Stay ~ Valentine’s Day Cards from Springfield Illinois Photographer Kari Bedford

Did you know that Valentine’s Day is the second most popular day to send greeting cards? Neither did I! One of my clients chose to do a session in her home so that she could send out custom Valentine’s Day cards instead of Christmas cards. I think they turned out so cute that EVERYONE should send out Valentine’s Day cards instead of Christmas cards. Makes the holiday warm fuzzies last just that much longer.

Just had to share!


This Makes Me Happy ~ Springfield IL Photographer

I laughed a lot during Hannah’s senior portrait session, mainly because her mom, Sue, kept saying really hilarious things about anything and everything. I was really glad to have Sue along on Hannah’s session…for a couple of reasons. The first, I’ve already mentioned. The second? She’s a cancer survivor. I’m sure glad she’s still around…and I know Hannah is too. At the end of the session, while we were just goofing off and chatting, I snapped this photo of the two of them. It says so much about these two beautiful women…and it makes me very happy. Thanks for your help, Sue! Glad you could tag along on Hannah’s session!
