Laura Kruger Photography Blog bio picture

    I am working to get this new page up and running, so please be patient as I'm try to learn Word Press. To see my updated work please check out Facebook. updated 03.29.15

    I am a professional photographer based in Bloomington, Illinois and also serve Pike County, Illinois. I have been a photographer for over 8 years. I use both natural light and studio lighting. My favorite things to photograph are newborns, maternity, children, family and senior portraits. I offer convenient sessions on-location and in my studio located in Bloomington, Ilinois.
    I am also a member of the NAPCP (National Association of Professional Child Photographer's).
    I also am a participating photographer with the Tiny Sparrow Foundation. This is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing lasting memories through the beautiful art of photography to the families within the United States of America with children who are facing life threatening illnesses.

Mae and Beau

I’ve been fortunate enough to photograph this little family since Mae was in her Mommy’s tummy!  I absolutely love that they make the trip over from Peoria every 3 months and sometimes in between for The Sweet Baby Collection sessions!  Beau came for his 3 month session and brought his big sister for her 2 year session!  We were lucky enough to get a few family pictures in the mix too!

Kelsey is my Rodan & Fields consultant!  I am loving the Reverse Regimen that she suggested for me!  I’m getting older and realize now how important it is to take care of my face, getting old sucks!  :/
Kelsey is always having giveaways so I highly suggest you go see her Facebook page!  She was even excited that she didn’t have to wear foundation for her session this time around.  Her skin is glowing!!

On to a few adorable pictures from their session!

Miss Ivy May

Little Miss Ivy wasn’t feeling it during our first try so we decided to reschedule for when she was her happy ole’ self!  I’m so glad we did because her little smiles and expressions are absolutely adorable!
This barn wood backdrop is so special to this family.  It was used at Ivy’s parents wedding reception!  I’m so happy that I’ve been able to put it to good use for them!

This is exactly how I feel when I run to the fridge for my ‘coffee’ (RockStar) and I’m OUT.  :( Or when I’m eating clean and all I really want is the Reece’s Egg that is sitting in my fridge!!  The struggle is real, people!
I promise, her tears didn’t last long!  She just needed a little loving from her Mommy!!

I’m Back, plus a little Easter Session Review!

I’m ready to get back on the blogging wagon,  so here I am!  This is so hard for me because the thought of sitting behind my computer even more just might make me crazy!  I’ll give it my best effort and see what happens!

Right before Spring Break I had my annual Easter Mini Sessions!  These sessions are so much fun!  I love seeing old and new families at these.

These two siblings had my heart.  She reached up and grabbed his sweet little face all on her own.  I’m pretty sure everyone in the room melted!  I love being able to capture these natural moments!

This little future football star wasn’t sure what to think of the soft little bunny sitting right beside him!

Brothers!!  Their Mama always has them dressed so perfectly!

The whole reason I do these sessions is so I can capture my own babies.  I dragged them out for pictures.  Poor Mason, the one on the far right had Influenza at the time.  :(
All three are on Tamiflu and he made a quick turn around, just in time for vacation!
Outfit details:  The boys shirts are from Von Maur and Finley’s dress is from

How stinking cute his her outfit!?

This is another family I adore!  There Mama is the sweetest, as are these brothers!

Valentine Mini Sessions

I’m so excited to finally have the space to create multiple setups for the Valentine Mini Sessions!  I definitely have created something for everyone this year!  We will be having the Valentine Sessions on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.  It’s a great day to bring the kids by since they don’t have school!  What better way to spend it than getting your adorable Valentine’s created!  I have morning and evening sessions available to accommodate nearly everyone!  You will be able to pick which setup suits your taste best!

Final Day of my Favorite Things Giveaway

I hope that you have had as much fun as me with the Giveaways each day! They were super fun and it’s something I hope I can do again!!

Today, my final day of Giveaways is devoted to my photography business. I had no idea that 8 years ago when I got my first DSLR that it would turn into such a fun and challenging business. But now, 4 years into having a Studio, I couldn’t be happier! Thank you all so much for your unwavering support! I couldn’t do this without you!

My very favorite session of the year are my Santa Mini Sessions!! The main reason why I started doing the Santa Mini Sessions was for my own children. I wanted to create timeless images for them with Santa when the magic is palpable. I get to let them spend extra time with him, hangout, take lots of fun, different, and unique pictures. My kids think it’s amazing. Since my Mini Sessions only last 10 minutes for other families, I want to extend a Special Santa Session to one family next year. You will get to come to the Studio in September and have an experience with Santa like no other. This year I did the regular Santa Sessions and the Magical Workshop Sessions. Next year, in 2015 I have something HUGE up my sleeve. I promise you won’t want to miss out on it! You will be my model family for the event. (Yes, you read that right…EVENT!!) It’s huge! Your family will be used in all of my marketing and promotional material for the event! You will get the entire session and images GIFTED to you!!!

The Contest will run until Sunday night at 10pm. Good luck and continue to Enter each day until then!!
