  • Hello there…

    I'm Jolene Bresney, a lifestyle and portrait photographer located in Bloomington, Illinois. Let's see... a little bit about myself: I love books. It's the words I'm drawn to. I love how simple words, entwined, create something beautiful. Art and expression as one. It's probably why I love photography. I can say so much without uttering a single word. I am a perfectionist, never quite content. A blessing and a curse. Music. It entices my creativity...I can get lost in a song. I love the ocean... she is constant and steady. Yet, every time she hugs the shore, she brings the promise of a new beginning. The mountains... a reminder of how small and insignificant I really am. Nudging me to look up. Always, and for everything. I have 3 kids. Without them, none of this could ever have been. Through them I have found myself. No words can express my gratefulness and love for them. They have taught me about unconditional love, and grace. Through them I see the beauty in the everyday. I love summer. Her evening song, the carefree days of sunkissed play. Sunrise and sunsets, again so constant, yet breathtaking every time they grace the horizon. Enough about me... I want to meet you! If you like what you see, you should call me.


Hello friends,

I have a couple projects coming up where I need models!!  I need a couple (fun, happy,  in-love, and not camera shy!)  Session will last 1.5 hours and couple will receive edited files from the session.

I also need a family that would be willing to do a home session – a session that is in your home– your home does not need to be perfect, photo ready… forget freshly painted walls, a cleaning lady, etc. I’m looking for a natural home, preferably with some good light!  The more lived in, the better!  Session will last 2 hours and you will receive edited files from the session.  100% free!  Can’t go wrong.

Sessions need to take place before the end of the month.  If you or someone you know is interested, please contact




Can you believe this weather?! Ahhhmazing.

AVAILABILITY // Bloomington High School Senior Photographer // Normal High School Senior Photographer

I am almost booked up for the rest of September and October.  I have saved a few dates for high school seniors.  For one week only I am offering complimentary short films to go along with the session.  A new direction I am going with my business!  Refer a friend who actually books a session and I will offer prints of all images from your session to go in a keepsake box.  This offer will end next Saturday.  To be eligible, your session must be booked and session fee paid in advance.  Soooooo if you are a senior who likes original, authentic, FUN photos that are different than everyone else’s… I’m your girl.:)

I love the idea of offering short films with my sessions- it adds a little magic to each session!  Here’s a peek into what my mornings are like!  I’d love to capture your family doing what you love to do!!!  And please excuse the kitchen mess.  :)
