Abby Thomas Photography  Small town girl from Springfield, IL. Photographer in love with my husband, bunny, travel, iced lattes, and interior design.

When you find a room that makes you feel like you’re in a antique dollhouse... you move all of the storage and Christmas decorations to clear a corner for your bride! Who would have thought my favorite room would be a storage closet in an old church? So thankful for a couple that doesn’t question the *rather interesting* places I drag them to.

Can’t tell if she is glowing because of the pregnancy or because it’s golden hour 🤰🏻Either way this couple was on FIRE last night! I feel like every other picture I was squealing in excitement or yelling “YES”. Anyone ever experienced the shear excitement of Abby Thomas during a photo session? If you have- I’m sorry 😅 I can’t help it! ———————————————————— #maternityphotography #maternityfashion #maternityphotoshoot #maternityshoot #maternitycouple #springfieldilmaternithphotographer #springfieldilphotographer #springfieldilcouples #midwestcouples #springfieldilcouplesphotographer #outdoorsession #couplessession #centralilphotographer #centralilcouplesphotographer #illinoiscouples #pregnant #30weekspregnant #washingtonpark #couplessessionpose #couplestyle

Lilly and I’s reaction to the forecast saying that it was supposed to be thunder storming during our senior session. It was STUNNING! Also so was she. Obviously. _____________________________________________ #springfieldilphotographer #springfieldilportraitphotographer #springfieldilseniors #seniorphotos #seniorsession #outdoorsession #washingtonpark #seniorpictures #seniorsunday #senior #sunset_pics #centralilphotographer #midwestphotographer #illinoisphotographer #canon6DMarkii

Hey fam! I am gearing up for senior, family, maternity, social media marketing sessions AND a wedding this month! It’s going to be a blast. I just wanted to warn you, I might need to catch my breath in between running around to get you your perfect shots... because YO GIRL IS 12 WEEKS PREGNANT! Blake and I couldn’t be more excited to meet our little one in November. In the meantime, I’m going to continue doing what I do best. I’ll just be a little rounder 🤰🏼

I delivered not one but TWO sessions this morning to some fabulous clients! Finishing out the week on my laptop with Dixie hopping around and watching Planet Earth with Blake (this show has us SHOOK). Happy Saturday friends!

Wanted to pop on here to say HELLO from me and mine! This week has been packed full with things like serving at our church, hosting a baby shower for a dear friend of mine, dinners with family, and your classic 9-5. While that is all great, I am never NOT excited to be in sweatpants and sloppy bun looking over at Blake (probably with our pet bunny running around beneath us) and breathing a sigh of relief to finally be home. We are home bodies to the core. Anyone else out there always looking forward to the next time they get to wear their slippers?!⁣⠀

Anyone else in a season of purging their everyday life? I didn't used to take spring cleaning very seriously, but man! It feels like a spiritual thing when I look at once full room and can see the floors again. I was feeling encouraged until I realized that I could spend an entire day unsubscribing from emails to clean out my inbox.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Getting excited and preparing all of my gear for a busy two weeks of spring sessions. Everything from seniors and young families to engaged couples a entrepreneur head shots! Let's do this thing.⁣⠀

Got to capture some photos of this handsome grad over the weekend! His family and I took advantage of the perfect Saturday weather by strolling around downtown Springfield. Graduation is right around the corner, Micah! Congrats, I know you make your Mama proud! ________________________________________________

Currently sitting OUTSIDE during the workday and getting stuff done on my laptop. Wow that feels good to say (type?)! Welcoming all the things that come with springtime: cool breeze, capris, sunshine, and allergies. Bring it on.

I’ve got another family shoot this weekend after a LONG winter and it is going to be a breath of fresh air folks. Bring on the chaos!

I had a client text me the other day and tell me that their parents and grandparents have a photo from their session already printed and hanging in their houses. I've had other clients send me videos of entire books that they had printed from their session that sit on their coffee table for guests to go through. And I can't count how many times I have seen my photos as someones background on their phone or as a profile picture for a social media account. It's pretty darn cool seeing your work in other peoples lives. Hanging on the walls, sitting on their tables, or shining bright when they look at their phone in the morning. I'm wondering if it will ever get old?

If you scroll through my feed you might notice that the color yellow is a reoccurring theme. In all honesty, I have no idea why. But I love it! It's one of my favorite colors. I will live vicariously through those who have skin tones that are compatible with mustard, because as much as I would love to, it makes me look like I am sick. Anyone else out there have a color that they love but can't wear? Anyone who just wears it anyway? Bold. Very bold. ⁣
