I love these types of views. When you see them, you just want to take in all their beauty, and for a moment, nothing else in the world matters except you and these views 💜💜💜 _______________________________________________________ #gardenofthegods #gardenofthegodsillinois #travel #adventure #adventuretime #roadtrip #travelgram #sceniceviews #illinois #herodillinois #getupandlive #getupandmove #ustravel

Garden of the Gods in Herod, Illinois We didn’t get to spend a lot of time here but I’m glad we stopped. I would love to come back and hike the trails. Totally worth the amazing views! ⛰ #gardenofthegodsillinois #herodillinois #travel #familytravels

Yesterday, @schnooten & I went to Garden of the Gods in Illinois. I've wanted to go there since I was in high school & so many of my classmates went & seemed to have such an amazing time. So we went! It was awesome! Unfortunately, we only were able to walk one trail before we were tuckered tf out. We just didn't have the materials for an all-day trek through the hills. We did however get to this great cliff called Indian Point. I've [re]discovered a love for climbing! When I was a kid, I climbed on e v e r y t h i n g. I've even had recent thoughts about wishing there were trees I could climb. But, oh man, yesterday. I got myself into allllll kinds of precarious positions, and it was awesome. There was an amazing effect that happened as well. My mind ~could not~ wander. There wasn't a time when I could let my mind turn in on itself. I HAD to be aware of what my whole body was doing, or I'd fall to my death (or dismemberment). Having to, very consciously, be outside myself in the actual world I was present in felt SO GOOD. This is the mindfulness exercise I need. It's ~literal~ exercise, but there's an awareness of my whole body required. There's problem solving with making sure I don't grab or step on a bad hold. My whole body & mind was taken up with it. I can't remember the last time that happened to me. . . . #roadtrip #vacation #garden #gardenofthegods #illinois #herodillinois #rockclimbing #rocks #mountains #hiking #bluesky #climb #climbing #sunshine #smiles #fun #happy #mindfulness #therapy #mentalhealth

Video in bio! Did some overnight camping at Garden of the Gods Wilderness in the Shawnee National Forest and found some really interesting rock formations that from what I can tell, no one else has found! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #shawneeproud #shawneenationalforest #hikingwithshawn #bluffage #waterfallsofinstagram #rockformations #gardenofthegods #herodillinois #optoutside #getoutdoors #getoutside #wilderness #wildernessculture #nature_photo #naturephotos

Made a spontaneous trip to Garden of the Gods yesterday, and as always, it did not disappoint! I will miss living next to a national forest, but in a few months I'll be living next to a national park. And that's okay too I guess! 😃 . . . . . . #illinois #illinoisozarks #southernillinois #shawnee #shawneenationalforest #gardonofthegods #herodillinois #yessitb #illinoisnature #exploreillinois #travelillinois #hiking #illinoishiking #rockformations #southernillinoisrocks #optoutside #naturegram #rocks #iloverocks #illinoisphotography #southernillinoisphotography #artistsofinstagram #summertime #wilderness #thegreatoutdoors

Found this Natural Arch in the Wilderness Area of Garden of the Gods in the Shawnee National Forest. I’m calling it Elephant Arch, can you see it? . . . . . . . . . . . . #shawneenationalforest #shawneeforestcountry #shawneeproud #hikingwithshawn #bluffage #southernillinois #gardenofthegods #karbersridge #herodillinois #rivertorivertrail #optoutside #getoutside #getoutdoors #natureshots #naturalarch #rockformations #elephantarch #wildernessculture

Stopped at a curious ruin on the side of the road. The foundation of an old house build right into the rocky cliffs. Met the nicest cat while we were there. He showed us around the place while we took photos. #abandonedplaces #abandonedhouse #herodillinois #shawneenationalforest #normalperspective photo credit Normal Perspective Productions and @anxious_bean06

Addie and Austin were one of the first couples I ever photographed back in 2017. They were gracious enough to let me practice on them when I first started my business. I’m so happy I’ve met these two because they are an incredible couple. When they got engaged Addie contacted me ASAP (like, I think it was within hours or him popping the question 😉) to make sure she could book me for their engagement session and wedding. Though I don’t plan on booking anymore weddings, these two make me want to reconsider! THAT’S how amazing they are♥️ . Addie and Austin’s fall engagement session is now featured on the blog! If you want to see more of their stunning gallery, head to the link in my bio! I promise you won’t be disappointed 😍☀️🍂 #sarahneeleycouples . . . . . . . . . . #illinoisphotographer #centralillinoisphotographer #centralilphotographer #southernilphotographer #southernillinoisphotographer #sarahneeleyphotography #edwardsvilleilphotographer #edwardsvilleillinoisphotographer #stlouisgram #stlouisphotographer #stlphotographer #saintlouisphotographer #vandaliailphotographer #effinghamilphotographer #missouriphotographer #glencarbonphotographer #edwardsvilleillinois #edwardsvillephotographer #ofallonphotographer #gardenofthegods #gardenofthegodsillinois #herodillinois #shawneenationalforest #shawnee #lovelulus #lulus #sarahneeleyphotography

First of all, these two are total babes Second, I couldn’t choose which to post so I posted both 🤷🏻‍♀️ it’s okay they’re super cute so no harm done THIRD - I need your help. Eric and I need headphones for the gym. Amazon reviews are NOT helping me. Which is usually the holy grail of reviews. I’m just seeing a lot of 1 Stars and not feeling so great about those😅 so I need you guys to let me know what you use and what you love/don’t like about them. Brands you like and brands you haven’t had great experiences with. Eric doesn’t mind a chord, but I’d prefer Bluetooth. We both want headphones that go over your ears, not in them. SO please lemme know your recs below🙌🏻 and thank you in advance 😘😁 . . . . . . . . . . . #illinoisphotographer #centralillinoisphotographer #centralilphotographer #southernilphotographer #southernillinoisphotographer #sarahneeleyphotography #edwardsvilleilphotographer #edwardsvilleillinoisphotographer #stlouisgram #stlouisphotographer #stlphotographer #saintlouisphotographer #vandaliailphotographer #effinghamilphotographer #missouriphotographer #glencarbonphotographer #edwardsvilleillinois #edwardsvillephotographer #ofallonphotographer #sarahneeleycouples #gardenofthegods #gardenofthegodsillinois #herodillinois #shawneenationalforest #shawnee #lovelulus #lulus #sarahneeleyphotography

About a mile away from the Hitching Post Trailhead in the #GardenOfTheGods #Wilderness, lies a part of the #ShawneeNationalForest with interesting #RockFormations and all sorts of cool #waterfalls like the ones on this post. Sometimes you just have to go off trail to find the awesome #bluffage and things of the #ShawneeForestCountry. #getoutside #getoutdoors #optoutside #hikingwithshawn #shawneeproud #enjoyillinois

✨SOME THINGS I LEARNED IN 2018✨ tagged by @brookegordondesigns . • Good things take time. I look back on my work and I can’t believe how far I’ve come, but I can’t ignore the fact that I struggled for so long to get where I am today. Don’t give up, because hard work always pays off. It also takes a lot of patience and education! It won’t happen over night! . • Saying “No” isn’t always negative. I’d rather say no and be honest than give an excuse. In my job I don’t want to photograph everything, so I refer a lot of people to other talented photographers who have different specialties. This applies to so much more than just my job, and it applies to every day life as well! . • Your mental and physical health is so important. Don’t ignore the signs your body is showing you, and take care of yourself! I neglect myself during my busy season. It took a toll on me this year(and last year), and I’m going to be more intentional with my time from now on! . I’m tagging friends to share! What’s something you learned, big or small, in 2018? Let me know below! . . @emmachristinephotography @astridjohanaphoto @knitologyco @hannahmartini_ @wolfandwhimsy_photo . . . . . . . . . #illinoisphotographer #centralillinoisphotographer #centralilphotographer #southernilphotographer #southernillinoisphotographer #sarahneeleyphotography #edwardsvilleilphotographer #edwardsvilleillinoisphotographer #stlouisgram #stlouisphotographer #saintlouisphotographer #vandaliailphotographer #sarahneeley #effinghamilphotographer #sarahneeleycouples #missouriphotographer #glencarbonphotographer #edwardsvilleillinois #edwardsvillephotographer #midwestphotographer #midwestlovestories #gardenofthegods #gardenofthegodsillinois #shawneenationalforest #enjoyillinois #shawnee #herodillinois #lovelulus

“Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory.” George S. Patton // It’s always worth it. Every challenge, every adversity when overcome becomes a victory and makes you a better & stronger person. The same is true in marriage. Every challenge you overcome and get victory in strengthens your marriage. Don’t shy away or avoid challenges. Team up and keep fighting until you have victory. It’s always worth it.

One exciting weekend is ahead! In just 5 days I’ll be going down to Kentucky to capture these two tying the knot. Although they’re still young they’ve been together for years. It will be emotional, I’m sure, to see them enter into a covenant relationship for the rest of their lives after having been through many ups and downs together. Even in their differences they compliment each other perfectly. I really can’t wait to watch it all unfold! -k

“If your life is boring you need to get out of your comfort zone.” These are words we heard today that couldn’t be more true in our own lives. It’s easy to desire comfort but there’s no real reward. It’s when you step out that you experience the most amazing things, impact others, and grow into who you were made to be.

In the midst of gloominess, a glow emerged. In that moment it was like God’s way of reminding us that “there is always hope.” We all hope for good things, but do we ever allow our hope to become faith? Some mistake faith as a purely religious word when it is in fact not. Faith is the substance of things hoped for. That means that those who have a dream must also have faith. We all dream of love, a good future, and to make a difference in the world, but how many of us actually have faith we will find or accomplish those things? What are you hoping for?

The idea of bringing a home this cozy wherever you go is sounding pretty appealing. 🚌 Loved this relaxing morning with Isaac & Alexis in the most cozy bus tucked in the Shawnee National Forest. Imagine a morning taking your time making coffee with a French press, playing board games, and just enjoying your time. The simplest moments matter much more who you’re with than what you’re doing. ☕️

Getting stranded isn’t so bad when you’re with the one you love. Isn’t funny how you can find yourself rushing to get somewhere, but once you are with someone you love to be around it doesn’t matter so much what you’re doing but that you’re with that person? 🖤

@rainstormphoto

This is a picture of what marriage looks like. It really can be this fun if you stay spontaneous and remember to laugh (and jump in a pond in your nice clothes😜). We are so excited for Alexis & Isaac’s wedding next month! We know they will have a lot of fun for the rest of their lives. 🖤

This photo was sent to me by the very thoughtful @thomthebikeman It shows the old roadside café which once stood in Herod, Illinois. I visited the ruins of this unique eatery last March, and lamented that I would have loved to see this place in its former glory. Patience paid off. Thank You, Tommy! **(I will post some pics of this location as it was last spring later)** #history #southernillinois #americana #popecounty #illinois #littleegypt #soIL #historic #vintage #cafe #diner #folks #people #restaurant #cliffside #cliff #herodillinois #shawnee #thankful #exploring
