Georgeous New Family | Tina Ramirez Photography | Peoria IL newborn photography

Little baby G is the first baby for Ashley and Sen but you never would have guessed it. The both of them have taken to parenting like a fish to water. They both handle their new bundle with such ease and caring.

After spending some time with them, you can't help but feel the love that this family has.

You should just see him when he hears mommy's voice or feels her touch. It is truly beautiful.

Thank you Ashley and Sen for letting me get to know your family! I look forward to photographing G as he grows.

I found another family crazy enough to have 4 kids! | Peoria Family Photography

Saying I "found" them though really isn't the best term.

A few years ago I believe that God brought our two families together. Through a mutual friend, Anne and I were brought together, and then that friend moved away. We leaned on each other to fill the void of missing our friend, and I have to say that Anne has become one of my very best friends.

My husband and I love this family so much that we even asked Todd and Anne to be the godparents to our 3rd child.

This family has been such a blessing to ours that I am so glad to be able to give a little back to them through my photos.

I hope you will take a second to read this great article that was written about them in the "Peoria Journal Star"

One year old FUN! | Tina Ramirez Photography| Peoria Area Children Photography

It is time to CELEBRATE! Little man {K} has turned 1 year old!

K has the most gorgeous blue eyes and a soulful glance that is sure to melt the ladies hearts when he gets older. I have already come to the realization that Gianna is sure to become a victim of K's good looks.

Thanks Nikki and Travis! Your full gallery will be up soon.

Jake | EHS Senior Class of 2010 | Peoria Area Senior Photographer

Jake was such a trooper. His whole family came along to tease him during the session but he took it all in stride. Mom and little sis had been "location scouters" the days leading up to the session so we had some great spots to work with.

Jake really only had 1 request. That was pics of him with his car. What senior boy wouldn't want pics with his car? As long as we got some car photos, he would be up for anything else. He let me guide him around town and boss him around, which is a big plus in my book!

Jake is laid back, easy going and quite the cutie! I don't know how the girls could resist him :)

This is my favorite car photo:

Enjoy your sneak peek Jake! More to come soon!

I Love Loyal Clients | Peoria Illinois Family Photographer

I just love it when I get to meet up with my previous clients. I love getting to know the families, watching them grow and being able to document their moments. As a photographer, it is a great feeling to know that you are " The _____ Family Photographer".

Below is a sneak peek for a great family that I had the pleasure of meeting this spring. Little man {N} has grown so much since I last photographed him. This session was family photo time.

Even though it was chilly, the colors were fabulous and the subjects were gorgeous (well, handsome for the men).

Enjoy your sneak peek!

Future photographer, Little Miss {P} | Peoria Family Photographer

Check out this adorable little girl. I fell in love with her and she fell in love with my camera. I think she took as many pictures with it as I did. (Which anyone who knows me understands why this is such a big feat. I don't let anybody touch my camera) There is no way I could say "No" to this little cutie though.

She actually did a pretty good job too :)

I adore this photo:

I think it just goes to show you that you don't need big smiles to get an awesome portrait. She was studying my camera very intently.

Miss P thought that this was a BLAST! Don't worry, no children were harmed in the making of this photo.

This really is a great family with such fun personalities!

This last one just makes my heart go pitter-patter. I can see the adoration she has for her daddy, and him for her. :)
Randy and Danielle, enjoy your sneak peek. Your full gallery will be ready in a couple days!

Stylish Family Photo Shoot | Peoria County Family Photographer

I loved this family's outfit coordination the moment they stepped out of their vehicle. They looked like something straight out of a magazine.

I love how their outfits coordinate and compliment each other. Look at the way mom added a beautiful scarf to a solid sweater to give it oomph and style.

Oh My Goodness, little Miss B's outfit was absolutely adorable. It was a Matilda Jane which has the cutest children clothing.

I don't know if you can get any more adorable than these kids. They were a joy to photograph.

HELLO! Can we say "gifted gene pool?" No wonder those kids are so gorgeous!

Local Family Fun | Peoria County Family Photograpy

I really enjoyed photographing this family, and it was a plus that I only had to drive about 2 miles to do their session. They have great property. I just love the colors of the fall grass and old wood.

They contacted me after seeing another family's photos so they are able to participate in my referral rewards program. They will be receiving a complimentary 5x7 from their session just for being a referral.

So if you want a session, and know someone who has already had one, ask them about their referral cards.

Enjoy your sneak peek Mike and Shelly!

Robin | 2010 Stark County Senior

I swear I get to photograph the most beautiful people! Look at this stunning Senior girl. Her clothing options were phenomenal, her eyes are captivating, her skin is flawless and her smile is so pretty.

I just can't believe how blue and mesmerizing her eyes are. So pretty.

Enjoy your sneak peek Robin!

Hush, Its a secret! | Peoria Illinois Family Photographer

I got really nervous about whether or not this session was even going to take place. It was raining when I left the house and was raining on my way back home. Thank goodness, the rain decided to hold out long enough to capture these family moments.

This wonderful family decided to suprise Mom and Dad with a family portrait for Christmas. So, if you are reading this... don't tell :)

I tell you, it was a lot of fun and this family gave me some good laughs.

I'm so glad the weather held out for us!

Enjoy your sneak peek!
