The Davis Family | The Reset Conference | Lake County IL Family Photographer

This past weekend I lead a family photography shootout at the reset conference that was in Louisville Kentucky this year. I have attended the conference since the second year and have taught since the 3rd (if memory serves me right).  We had the most gorgeous family who so graciously drove from mid Kentucky to Louisville to be our family models! Thank you so much Davis family for lending us your sweet faces for that evening. And thank you to all my attendee’s for coming to my shootout! Take a look at some of my favorites from the night!

 Part of your world

-Jodi Benson

Look at this stuff
Isn’t it neat?
Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete?
Wouldn’t you think I’m the girl
The girl who has ev’rything?
Look at this trove
Treasures untold
How many wonders can one cavern hold?
Lookin’ around here you’d think
(Sure) she’s got everything
I’ve got gadgets and gizmos aplenty
I’ve got whozits and whatzits galore
(You want thingamabobs?
I got twenty)
But who cares?
No big deal
I want more
I want to be where the people are
I want to see
want to see ’em dancin’
Walkin’ around on those
(Whad’ya call ’em?) oh – feet
Flippin’ your fins you don’t get too far
Legs are required for jumpin’, dancin’
Strollin’ along down a
(What’s that word again?) street
Up where they walk
Up where they run
Up where they stay all day in the sun
Wanderin’ free
Wish I could be
Part of that world
What would I give
If I could live
Outta these waters?
What would I pay
To spend a day
Warm on the sand?
Betcha on land
They understand
Bet they don’t reprimand their daughters
Bright young women
Sick o’ swimmin’
Ready to stand
And ready to know what the people know
Ask ’em my questions
And get some answers
What’s a fire and why does it
(What’s the word?) burn?
When’s it my turn?
Wouldn’t I love
Love to explore that shore above?
Out of the sea
Wish I could be
Part of that world

Bloomington Family Workshop | Lake County IL Family Photographer

I was honored to be asked by the Central Illinois Professional Photographers group to teach a family photography workshop in the Bloomington/Normal area. This past Tuesday I made my way down there! The group is ran by Holly Birch Smith, Kristin Darling, and Emily Donohoe. 3 amazing ladies that I originally met at the Reset conference a few years back. I can’t say enough good things about them and the entire group I got to work with on Tuesday. Also, the group, along with the family we were photographing, were all SUCH troopers for dealing with the 90% humidity (or so it felt). Needless to say we were all dripping sweat by the end! Take a peek at some of the highlights from that night. I should add a few behind the scenes as well once I get those!

Come away with me in the night
Come away with me
And I will write you a song
Come away with me on a bus
Come away where they can’t tempt us, with their lies
And I want to walk with you
On a cloudy day
In fields where the yellow grass grows knee-high
So won’t you try to come
Come away with me and we’ll kiss
On a mountaintop
Come away with me
And I’ll never stop loving you
And I want to wake up with the rain
Falling on a tin roof
While I’m safe there in your arms
So all I ask is for you
To come away with me in the night
Come away with me
