love, Jenelle

I'm so glad you came to visit me! I specialize in newborn and family photography in the Central Illinois area.
When you choose me, you're investing in the time, talent and trust it takes to capture the baby bump that makes you glow, your brand new little miracle, the milestones your baby will go through in his/her first year, and your family as it grows over the years. I love my job and you will love your pictures.

beautiful pictures

Jenelle was absolutely amazing to work with. She made our photo session so much fun and made my shy little girl feel so comfortable around her! Definitely recommend! Just got the photos back, and absolutely love them!

fun and comfortable

Absolutely obsessed with the maternity photos my husband and I had done with Jenelle. It was an amazing experience from start to finish. The booking experience was easy and fast and pricing was very reasonable. During the session Jenelle was professional, but genuine and sweet and fun, and really made the whole experience relaxing and enjoyable for both of us. The pictures were amazing. We’ll be using her for all of our family photo needs in the future!

reasonably priced 

We love Jenelle! She's the BEST!!! She has such a passion for capturing the most precious moments!!
