About Us

Judy and I have owned and operated Creative Photography Inc. for over two decades now. We strive to blend our talent and expertise together to earn the honor of being your family's photographer. Judy guides you through the careful planning of your session paying special attention to all the details that take your portraits from good to priceless! I offer a unique blend of traditional and contemporary photography keying in on your personality and emotion... what makes you who you are.

We have had the opportunity to study with nearly all of the industry leaders including Anne Geddes. The most important thing to us is not who we've studied with or what we know, but making sure you have the best experience possible and that your family has an heirloom to cherish for generations.


Hi my name is Rodney McClanahan
I'm the photographer at Creative Photography Inc. I love what I do and the people I meet!
Every one has a story to tell about life and for me It's capturing my clients and creating a image that they will enjoy for years to come! I photograph the Circle of Life not as a photographer but as a Photographic Artist. As a Artist you need to know all about your equipment from top to bottom, cameras, lights, backgrounds, compositional elements and how to put them all together.

Over the years I have been involve with the Professional Photographers of America, Associated Professional Photographers of Illinois, Professional Photographers Association of Northern Illinois, and the Southern Illinois Art League. All of these groups have helped me become an Artist in the field of photography. Over the years I've gotten my Certification in Photography by taking a test and keeping it up every five years, a Master of Photography Degree and a Photographic Craftsman Degree. It's not over yet, each year a new camera or software comes out and it's back to the books, as a Professional Photographer and Artist I feel that I need to keep up with all the new products and know them front to back. I test myself every year with print competitions, they are judged for the 12 elements of a merit image by the PPA this helps me look deeper into my own photography. I do all of this for my clients that are looking for a work of art not just a snapshot on a piece of paper.
