Creative Styled Steampunk Fall Portrait Session

Creative Styled Portraits by Tonya Wells a portrait photographer from Fairbury, Illinois. A portrait is a likeness or representation of someone whether through sculpture, painting or photograph. If a portrait sounds like it has more depth than a p​icture it's because it usuall​y does and tends to have more of a story than a picture does. Creative portraits use expression and lighting to create drama, set a mood or make a statement. Creative portraits are artwork, they make you think about what is going on in the scene, they may make you question or reflect upon a subject, show different perspectives.

Let's create beautiful artwork together, let's bring your imagination to life in a beautiful portrait of your very own.

Preteens, Teens & High School Se​nior Portrait Experience

Preteen, Teen & High School Senior Portrait experience with Tonya Wells Portrait Photographer with a boutique portrait studio (Poetic Grace & Co.) from Fairbury, Illinois. Preteens and teens struggle from day to day to see their beauty with so much perfection on Instagram and their peers can be mean to each other so that's why it's important to help them to see their beauty and be reminded of that with wall art that celebrates who they are. That is why I have made it my mission to empower teens through the power of portraiture to be proud of who they are.​

Experience an Angel Wings Photoshoot


This photoshoot was my practice session with our new studio angel wings, I asked my daughter Cassidy and my assistant Alianna to be my models for this shoot.

This shoot was so much fun!!

The girls felt like Victoria Secret models for the day, they also just so happen to look like Victoria Secret models, but you don't have to look like a Victoria Secret model to book a shoot with the angel wings, any woman who puts these wings on will look and feel absolutely beautiful!

Who doesn't want to feel beautiful?

Your future self will thank you for it.

Book your angel wings session today!


"Admire someone's beauty without questioning your own, we are all beautiful in our own ways."

Ballet Portraits

Moments come and go so fast in our children's lives. In the blink of an eye your little girl won't be so little anymore! There will come a day when you take her to ballet class for the last tim​e, she will hang up her tutu and her pointe shoes because she's either outgrown it or her life has got to busy to dance anymore!

We never know when that last day will come!

Call me today 309-660-6296

So I can capture and create beautiful artwork of her, for you to display in your home. Celebrate her elegance, beauty and grace with a ballet portrait session 💕

As always I appreciate your shares!❤
