Welcome! I am Rhonda Johnson.

I am a newborn, child, and wedding photographer in North Central Illinois. I have always had a camera in my hand documenting life. That is where I would say my passion resides. Consider me a life storyteller. Instead of using words to tell your story, I capture moments. It's the little things...the laughter, the smiles, the silliness, the littleness, brand-new-ness, the forever and always. These are priceless gifts that you will be able to unwrap again and again when you look at your portraits.

My studio is an addition on the front of our country home where I live with my husband (and high school sweetheart), Brad and our two children. We are surrounded by many acres of timber with a beautiful creek and vintage barns from the 1860's. You may choose to have your family session set against the backdrop of stunning maple and oak trees or near the quiet creek. The studio is comfy and cozy...especially for new parents and their baby. The studio is full of beautiful accessories, props, and backdrops for babies and children. When you come to the studio, Chloe our 10 year old Shorkie will want to greet you! She especially loves babies!

So welcome! I invite you to take a look around! I would love the privilege of connecting with you and giving you the gift of your story captured.

Rhonda Johnson


“Rhonda is an absolute JOY to work with! We had the blessing of doing our session on the beach in Cabo, and I can't say enough good things! She was SO good with our kids and very patient. She takes her time, and my family adores her. I love that she made sure we were completely satisfied. We left the session excited and eager to see the final photos! Rhonda Johnson Photography is amazing at what she does and we are so happy with our beach session, I have them hung all over our home!”

“Rhonda was absolutely amazing to work with. From our first meeting to personally delivering canvases we ordered, she was there to answer all of our questions! She truly captured our wedding day perfectly, and we couldn't have asked for a better person to share a special day with us. Her passion for her profession is abundantly present in her work, her pieces of art speak for themselves. We are so blessed to have Rhonda as a lifelong friend to capture our moments!”

“Rhonda is a very genuine photographer. She flew all the way from Illinois to California just to do our newborn's first photo session and did an extraordinary job. She is beyond professional and an expert with newborns. I highly recommend this amazing woman and the name 'The Baby Whisperer' truly suits her very well.”

“Rhonda has been our family photographer for the past 5 years. She captured the moments and people that matter most to our family beautifully. We used her as our wedding photographer, and she was amazing! She has also captured amazing newborn and milestone pictures for our two children. It is magical to watch her. My daughter frequently asks if we can go to Rhonda's for more pictures as Rhonda works so well with kids and makes everyone love her. I highly recommend her!”

“Rhonda was exceptional! She did everything she could to capture every moment on our wedding day, and she did a perfect job! Our photos turned out great and we could not be happier to have chosen such a professional and talented photographer.”

“I have been going to Rhonda for various photos this last year, and I'm always so happy and so in love with the results! She is patient with little kids, she is attentive to detail, and just a genuine person. You can tell she loves what she does. She makes getting pictures done enjoyable!”
