My lil' sis

So, I am at my little sisters home tonight and we are doing what we do best, playing with pictures. This is a little storyboard we made for her. I took these photos a while ago when I first opened my studio. I love the face of her little one in the second picture.
Until next time,

Sneak peek of my 2-tone Asuka Template

So, this is my new endeavor... Asuka books. I really wanted to design a wedding template because it can be very time consuming to design these books. Most weddings have 2 colors, so you can change the colors any way you like, this wedding was royal blue and pink which I thought was very unique and classy. You can also change these up and use them for family or baby books or resize them to 5x5 books. They will be available in the next week or so...

This is the front and back of the book...

The voting has been tampered with, so as of right now I am ending the contest and as of yesturday, when votes were steady Garrett was in the lead so he is the winner. It is sad to me that the voting wasn't honest. I have removed the post.

Congrats to Garrett though I will be contacting the parents shortly!

Anyone that was involved (the 5 participants) in the contest will recieve a special discount in the future if they would like to book a session.

Mark & Annie

Here are a few that I wanted to share. Check out the cake picture! This was the messiest cake feeding that I have ever seen at a wedding. I am getting all caught up so I only have one more session to proof and the rest of this wedding! I am itching to be outside right now, the snow is bumming me out and I have been inside all day since Saturday! To make things worse my sister called me from Hawaii today to check on her son, I am beyond jealous that she got to go surfing today. I guess I will just eat my ice cream and watch my DVR...

This was my favorite of their wedding day...

Collage Templates sneak peek...

A while back I put a poll on my blog asking what kind of templates you all are looking for. Collage/Storyboards were in the lead, so I am making a set of collages. Here is a peek of them. They will be ready for purchase next week.

another teaser

I just love this image. I haven't really gone through all the images yet, but I will be posting a lot. This couple was SO fun. There are a ton with personality. I love this photo, the feeling, it's beautiful. I also love the color in the background from the tree, makes me think of more colorful seasons. I am so done with winter already! Someone make the snow stop!

January Mini Sessions

Well, my first day of mini sessions went pretty well. I am exhasted because I had a wedding the day before, but of course I had to play with some of them because that is half the fun. It was a bit hectic, but I think in the end I accomplished what I set out to do. I got to photograph such beautiful/wonderful kids. I couldn't have done it without Michelle, she really stepped up and helped me out a lot! So I picked a picture of each child for a sneak peek!

Oldie but goodie...

I was post processing some of my old photos for my new site and came accross this image again. I love photographing babies this age, around 6 months. They can't get away quite yet and they are very intrigued by the camera.

Sunday, January 13, 2008


So, I decided to run a contest again since the last one was so much fun. I really love photographing children and love even more photographing willing subjects,,,,, so I decided to run a photo contest for children from age 6-13yrs old. This is such a fun age and an age that is overlooked for individual portraits. I do want to show my clients that this a special age for children, finding out who they are and owning their personality. Children this age seem to love getting their pictures taken and I in turn love taking their photographs! So, the contest begins....

The Contest: Email me your favorite picture of a nominee you know and love, they must know they are being nominated!, to
They must be age 6-13 yrs old and open to getting their picture taken and being oohed and awed about.

The Rules: I need photos by Sunday, January 20th at Midnight. Please send their story... ie.. what they like, who they are, something interesting about them. I will choose the top 5 based on their stories and creativity of the pictures (they don't have to be professional, just something that shows their personality). They also have to be okay with having their photo on my blog for people to vote on. After the top 5 are picked, I will have my blog readers vote, this should be fun.

The prize you ask???
They will recieve a custom photoshoot that will be created just for them. I promise that this will be very creative and interesting, something outside the box.
They will also recieve a 16x20 sprayed and mounted photo of their choice. This prize is valued over $300.

Start sending in those photos! I can't wait to see them!

Mini Sessions Update

January 19th now has one opening at 2pm.

February 9th has 3 slots available. Email me for more information.

Remember mini sessions last 30 min. and are for up to 2 children. Studio only.

I will be adding a date for March if my February Date fills up...

Exciting News..

I am finally building my new site from Blu Domain! I know the suspense is killing me too and I am the one putting it together! I can't wait to share it with you all!



I post so many pictures of Chloe, so here is one of Tate from today. Jess and I took the twins and her little girl out in the snow for some pictures and we thought, oh this will be fun... well little ones and snow don't always mix. I think this is the only photo I really liked of my kids. I had about 5 minutes of opportunity. I think I will have to wait until they are a little older to take them out on these adventures, it just isn't fun for them... at all:)

A Day in the studio...

This is one of my favorite client's grandchildren. Even though it was cold in my studio that day, these beautiful children did a great job. This clothing can be found at Children's Hour on 9th and 9th in Salt Lake City. It seriously is the best Children's store in the valley. Beautiful european clothing and lots of it!

Look at this grin...

Just had to post one more of this mother and daughter...

ray of sunshine

Love this photo from this bridal shoot. I will definately share more soon... Annie was so fun to photograph, soooo much personality and very comfortable in front of the camera. This was in front of my studio, a much cuter studio than mine!
