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.

Annibelle is ONE

Sweet Annibelle just turned ONE!!  She made me work for her smiles every session except this one!  She was so happy!!  She celebrated with an adorable hot air balloon party.  She’s tiny but mighty and super adorable!  I’ve enjoyed getting to see her grow over the last year.  One year sessions are so fun since they are learning to walk and are super busy!   Happy Birthday Anni!!


Eva just turned 1/2 year old

I can’t believe little Miss Eva is already 1/2 year!  She was so smiley and happy at her 6 month session!  I always love when Ashley brings both girls!  Big Sister Mila was all about being my helper!  She got the most genuine smiles out of her little sister!!

I also love when Mama is willing to pop in a photo or two!  Just look at Eva’s thighs!!  I LOVE squishy babies!!  They are so adorable!!

If you are in the Pike County, Illinois area you need to hit up Mimi’s Boutique!  Ashley and her mother in law, Jonie have a small selection of spring/summer special occasion dresses and casual wear for your little ones! Stop in at Ina’s Westside Salon in Pittsfield to check it out.  Both outfits (in exception of the lower right) are just two of the cute outfits they have!!


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!
