The Buhnerkempe Family

Growing up in a family with six kids, I never wished to have a small family. Being part of a large family has some awesome perks: you’re never alone, someone is always there to help you, and every meal is like a party. However, as amazing as it is to be a part of a […]

The Witges Family

  The possibility of incoming storms couldn’t stop the Witges family from rocking their session at the St. Francis of Assisi Church in Teutopolis, IL!

Passalacqua Family

It was such a privilege to photograph this beautiful family! Aren’t they just picture perfect?? I’ve known Matt for my whole life, and Leah almost my whole life. I honestly can’t remember a time when they weren’t together, whether dating or married. These two just complement each other perfectly, which is total marriage goals. 🙂
