hey there!

I'm so glad you came to visit me! I specialize in maternity, newborn and young family photography in Central Illinois.
My style is natural, timeless, earthy, and comfortable.  Look around, style awhile and I hope to meet you soon!

"I used Jenelle for our newborn pictures and I loved every single one. Her studio is just perfection with everything you could think of from a beautiful wardrobe of clothes you can use for the shoot to even diapers and wipes in case you need them! She is just the sweetest person and her style is absolutely gorgeous. I cannot say enough amazing things about her and her photos."

"Jenelle is hands down the most amazing photographer you could ever ask for. She is a SAINT and I can only dream of someday having a fraction of the patience she has while working with my children 😝 We have done newborn, sitter, and full family sessions with her! I am thoroughly blown away with our albums EVERY SINGLE TIME. She is amazing at what she does and amazing at making you feel so at home and comfortable. Book her every chance you get!"

"Jenelle is an absolute dream to work with! We have always enjoyed our time with her and pictures from her. From a larger group, to milestones, seasonal family photos, to capturing a truly special dress up session with my girls - her work is just fantastic and showcased all over my home! She is so sweet and patient with my girls and truly makes the whole experience so enjoyable! We always look forward to the next session with her and the stunning work we know we will receive in return!"

"If I could have given Jenelle 10 stars I would have! She is such a talented photographer. She effortlessly poses her clients and the results are phenomenal. . . We literally can not find a single photo we don't like. We get so many compliments on our pictures and we can't help but sing her praises. She is also very dedicated to her work and returning the finished product to her clients in a timely fashion. I don't think there is anything she can't photograph beautifully. . .  I would 1000% recommend photography by jenelle to anyone looking to have pictures done. You will not regret it."

I'm here to give you peace of mind and take the stress out of family photos. To capture the details your memory might later forget. To make you laugh and have fun. And to make you fall in love with your family all over again when you see the photos hanging on your wall. I'm a family photographer because I fell in love with clients loving their photos. Knowing that I can give someone beautiful photos of a time in their lives that otherwise would have passed so quickly is a privilege I don't take lightly.
