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 their first year, and your family as it grows over the years. I love my job and you will love your pictures.

"Jenelle is fabulous!! She is so great and very patient with our girls and the pictures always turn out way beyond my expectations!! She always gets the pictures done and back to me so quickly! Not to mention her new studio is beautiful ;) we just finished one of our many sessions with her and I can’t wait to do a family session again soon! Highly recommend!!!!" - Delanie

very patient

"We could not be happier with the work that Jenelle did for our first born and our first family photo of the three of us. Jenelle is not only the sweetest, but she is also a baby whisperer. She was absolutely wonderful with our son. We felt completely comfortable taking a back seat and letting her work her magic - which it truly was. I would highly recommend her over and over again. Maybe that is why we are getting the whole package. :)" - Sarah

"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!" - Sara

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!" - Megan
