Textured Canvas Templates- $25

Here are my new canvas templates! I think they would work great in three's, all lined up next to each other. All 3 are sized at 100ppi, 12x12 inches. They can easily be resized to 6x6, 8x8, or 10x10's. Great way to sell a pack of three canvases. Great for printing at simply canvas or WHCC. I recommend printing these on Metallic canvas Matte finish. They will look great!

I ordered a sample so I will post pictures soon!

Yet, another..

mentoring session is complete. I had the best time with an amazing mother/daughter pair from Tennessee. They were so cute and fun and we had the best time talking photography and life. It is really fun getting to know other photographers and relate to each other about the business and everyday life. Every time I finish a mentoring session I leave feeling so happy to meet new, amazing people and hope they went home with inspiration and knowledge. I will miss you two!

here are a few images by the great girls that took my mentoring session, aren't they fab?

Out of town...

Going river rafting this weekend, see you all on Monday, don't miss me too much:)

and you said they were hard to photograph...

This family was amazing to photograph, fun and open to anything. The parents were really worried about their kids saying they were really hard to photograph, but I loved them! Thanks Jeana for helping! If I had that family picture, I would have it huge in my home, I think I love it.

Children's Hour

I had a photo shoot with Children's Hour for their fall line and got to shoot this beauty. If you haven't made it in to Children's hour you need to go! She just opened up her fabulous new store, still on 9th and 9th, but it's now about 3 times the size.

yummy urban goodness...

I knew right after I took this photo it would be my favorite... is he not the cutest? I will post more really soon! Thanks to his awesome family for getting really dirty in this sweet location.

by Jess

thanks Jess! not really...

So, I have to write 7 quirky things about myself... here goes.

1. I won't dress my twins alike, ever... okay so maybe on Halloween.
2. I still think I am a California girl even though I have lived in Utah now for 14 years.. oh man 14!
3. I can justify any shopping trip, for any reason.
4. I never thought I was obsessed with anything, thought I dabbled in everything until I started photography, it's a serious obsession...
5. My siblings think I am the weird one... little do they know I am the normal one and they are all weird.
6. I like to be in control, almost all the time. I am always freaking out about how Anthony drives, I have a hard time letting others control my fate!
7. I sing Feeling Groovy to Chloe at night when I put her to bed... she loves it, Tate not so much he starts flailing around like a dead fish.

That's it, do you know me better now?

So now this is the fun part, I am tagging Nikki, Carin, Tara, Christy, Rebekah, Jeana, and Kara

Sneak peek of Christmas templates 2008

So. I have been thinking long and hard about what I wanted to do for my christmas templates this year... I thought and thought and then my brain hurt so I just forgot about it.

I will have a pack of 5 cards for Christmas, all trifolds and folded cards soon and then another set of 5x7 simple photo card templates as well. What do you think?

we came home from our trip one day early to have a recoop day day before Anthony goes back to work. Our trip was great even though our car had issues and our kids were sick (what's new). The beach was cold but no biggie because our kids decided they didn't like the water this year anyway. It was great to just go camping on the beach, take naps in perfect temperature outside, catch frogs, and sit around a campfire with the ones I love.

So, now I am back and ready to get caught up, if you are waiting for images it will be really soon! Here is more of this family that I loved, they were so fun to work with. I love when I show up to a shoot and you just click and the family just enjoys each other instead of having crazy expectations out of there children. This allows children to just be themselves and not have parents upset. Thanks for just being yourselves.

I am pretty sure he was winking at me...

look who just turned 3~

out of town

I will be out of town from July 17th-22nd. I will have limited email access so if there is something important just email me. We are going to the beach and the twins are turning two! How crazy. Don't you all worry, there will be a major shopping trip at H&M in Vegas on the way, in case you were wondering. Really, there is always a reason to buy my kids clothes, I don't think they can have too much.

just one...

How cute is he?? He had the biggest blue eyes and he was just so happy. I only have time to post one, I am off to Cali early in the morning. Today was a long one... after 3 sessions, locking my keys in the studio, and now having to pack I am one exhausted little chicka! Enjoy Jess! Thanks for walking all over downtown!

Baby "C"

This little guy was lovin being in a basket in a wheat field, only a few grasshoppers jumped on him so he wasn't too upset. I did this photoshoot for his big brother but of course I had to get pictures of the other 2 boys and even some fun family ones at the end of the session that I love. I will for sure post some more. Enjoy!

Here is my lil' sisters new baby! She brought her down to my studio and we had a little bit of fun. I mean what client would let me put their baby in a basket in a nasty alley?? Well, I think I love it and I think Bella is such a doll.
