3 boys...

could they get any cuter? Seriously, this session was so low key and the boys were such good little listeners. I loved their outfits and they were SO SO natural in front of the camera, don't they look like little surfer boys?

I don't know why I adore this one so much, I think the candid/editorial look from it just gets me!

They posed themselves just like this...


the new addition...

The W's

I had to post a quick few from this session, such a cute baby, all the rolls, I love it! Check out the booties too!

CPQ 10x13 Album..

I had to share this example album I have to show wedding clients from CPQ. I used my SIMPLY SOHO template for the design.
First of all, love love love the metallic finish on the pages, next the matte canvas cover is so beautiful. I also Love the rounded corners. I thought I would give them a shout out since they did such a fabulous job. If you are a professional photographer check them out, here is a link to their site:

No pressure

So, this the lovely couple that won the free groomals session. I loved this session, I got to be 100% creative, 100% my style, no pressure & even better they were SO fun to work with and obviously the camera loves them! Thanks Jeana for all your help!

This amazing dress is from Avenia Bridal in Provo. Amazing dress, the detail was incredible! My question is, why didn't they make amazing gowns like this when I got married? I wore a pouffy thing that I just laugh at now!

I actually picked up this little vintage hat 15 min before the session and it worked out perfectly with the dress. All in all this was one of my favorite wedding sessions ever. Ashley & Isaac, thanks for being open to anything!

my 2 favorite of the day...

I guess I'm pretty funny..

peace out.. I have a whole week off from shooting, it couldn't be a better week as far as weather!

my little Coco. She obliged me with a small photo shoot for 4 sticks of bubble gum. I can't wait to print these, she is so darn cute/crazy lately. Sometimes I get so busy I don't take my kids out for photo shoots and it makes me so sad because I love capturing them at each stage of their lives.
p.s. her complete outfit is from the Children's Hour on 9th & 9th...

I hate waiting too..

sorry it took so long but here they all are!
and this is not a new logo, I just didn't have my new info at my studio yet. My studio is coming along, lots of work but I think I am beginning to see the light at the end of the narrow, dirty, long tunnel...

Update... Mentoring

I get lots of emails still about Mentoring and I just want to let everyone know, I will no longer be doing Mentoring and do not plan to teach workshops. It is a source of stress I need to get rid of in my life, I am feeling beyond overwhelmed right now and need to de-clutter my life. Hope you all understand. I do have mentoring sessions booked until May, which have been scheduled for a while so if you see posts in the future about them, that is why. Just settin' the record straight that's all!

peace out.
