central illinois photographers

photography has allowed me the privilege of meeting some amazing people ~ mostly through workshops and meetings i’ve attended. most of these people i keep in touch with only online because they are all around the country (even though i completely wish i got to see them in person more)!

within the last several months, i’m so excited to have met other local photographers ~ for dinners/lunches (a girl’s gotta eat right!) and to meet and chat about what we do! in february, for our central illinois photographers meeting, we gathered in downtown Urbana, Illinois at CU Studio Share which is a member-shared modern photography studio and gallery. kate graciously offered to be our model so we could take advantage of this gorgeous space. it was such a fun departure for me, since i generally photograph outside and not in a studio space. thanks to Holly Birch for sharing the space with us and be sure to check out images from Andrea Beltz and Stephanie Gagnon as well!

below are some of my favorite images from the day!
