This is my little Chloe. I had some alone time with her tonight so I took her out I am blown away by how big she looks in this image. She isn't even 2 yet! I seriously could stare at her all day. This little girl has so much personality and I love seeing her grow. I haven't posted much of my kids on my blog lately because they are so hard at this age to photograph, but after this I am realizing that I need to take them out more for photoshoots. Tate was out with dad most of the day doing boy stuff so it was nice having some time with Chloe. I love this little girl more than words can explain. I know all you moms out there can understand. Kids are serious hard work but all worth it.

Mentoring update

Mentoring sessions are booked for August! Thank you! I can't believe the response I have had with this, just finished my second one today and it was so fun, thanks Monica!

I will probably only teach a few more this fall because it is my busiest time of year, but I will continue again in January '09.

much thanks

Just want to say thanks to the fabulous models today. Here is a little teaser for you both.

The L family

lovin the yellow stairs and the super sweet quick kiss

Asa just hung out and did whatever we told him to, well of course because he can't crawl yet. I love this age, they can sit up but can't get away!

love her wide eyed look in this picture. this was the end of the session and I think she was getting a little tired, perfect time to get those sweet little faces.

and their parents are looking HOT here. I should really post a close up of mom because her eyes are killer.

I love the feeling of this picture.

I had to add this one, a little different.

Thanks to Jeana for helping me and to a wonderful family for just hanging out dowtown and just having a good time.

Oh ya, I forgot to mention the best part of the session! So, little Gwen does NOT like her parents to be affectionate with eachother, especially holding hands. As soon as I tried to get a few photos of mom and dad she cried and cried, kinda funny kinda sad! Good thing Jeana was there to whisk her away and play! They said they will practice holding hands more for the next session!

Mentoring update

My July spots are full for mentoring and almost full for August.

beautiful family

I photographed this family last year and it was so fun to see them again. Seriously the are the best behaved children I have ever seen! Anthony came and helped me (my hubby) and since I have 2 cameras now he was having a hay day. He brought a whole different energy to the shoot and the girls responded to him well. 3 or 4 of these shots were taken by him, my favorite is the first one with mom and dad about to kiss and Anthony had a pow wow with the girls and had them run and jump on them. I love capturing real expressions and sincere love that this family has for eachother.
Oh ya and I met Trish at the Salt Lake Mother of twins club, aren't her twins adorable?!!

FYI, I used Indie's actions on these photos,,,, love them! I don't usually use actions with urban or studio, but with park like settings or country I use her actions, they seriously are amazing. I love how you can easily tweak them.

photo booth

Okay, so I feel a little wierd posting photos I didn't take! Anyways, these were taken by my wonderful assistant Jeana at Rachel and Josh's wedding last week. So, I really wanted to do some photo booth pictures at a wedding and it was so fun! I was kind of nervous because I hadn't done it before and also because it was more stress, but it worked out perfectly! The guests loved it and had a ton of fun. We also got the control the light a little. All you photographers that shoot indoors at wedding receptions understand! My goal was to let everyone have a little fun and enjoy the party! Thanks Jeana!

Sorry, you are going to have to click to enlarge on these ones! Blogger made them all blurry!

Rachel & Josh

I know I know, only one picture?? I have to tell you that making these photos huge on the blog is a lot of work!! I will post more because I want to show the photo booth we did at their reception. Her guests loved it and thanks Jeana for helping out!

Congrats to Rachel and Josh too, they were so fun and easy to photograph, I seriously love my job!

For Trina

Okay, so I am attempting to make my images larger, be patient with me!

A little something to make you smile...

What to do at a wedding if you are bored and 2 years old?

I was just editing a wedding and totally forgot that I took this photo, it really makes me laugh hard because everyone was trying to pull his finger out of his nose and he just kept diggin. Gotta love adorable 2 year olds with minds of their own...

Yet another amazing name... So, I have a ton more to post of this little girl and her adorable little brother Phoenix so I will do that soon. Plus we got a few with their amazingly beautiful mom also, so stay tuned. I really need to go and clean the disaster that is known as my living room right now so here is just a little sneak peek!

This is the dress that I was dying over from Chasing Fireflies and the mom was so nice and let me borrow it for a photo shoot with Chloe!


Isn't that the coolest name!
So, this was one of our models for the mentoring session. Every photographers dream come true, she loved getting her picture taken and she was so natural in front of the camera, no fake smiles, yeah!
She loved the pettiskirt and I am pretty sure she wanted to take it home with her.

The mentoring session went great, I have to say that I was pretty nervous before but it was great fun. I couldn't have had more fun with Bobbi, thanks Bobbi!
More pictures to come...

My new favorite...

There is something about this image that I absolutely love. I can't quite put my finger on it, but I love it. She is holding an old camera that I got at the Nook and Cranny the other day.

This little Ella reminded me so much of Chloe, spunky and of course almost 2 so I was chasing her around during the whole session.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Utah Lake

Last night we had another photo get together and it was so much fun, so many people came! It was a ton of fun to get to know you all better and talk photography. Here are some of the models that came and graced us with their presence,,, seriously amazingly beautiful. I shot a ton of pictures and then realized that I didn't have my memory card in, one mistake I will only make once!! I hope...
