Lantern Fest

August 24, 2016 at 1:48 pm

I’m super excited about these images! My good friend, Kimberly (and also my favorite model!) won 1st place in the Master Cosplay Contest at ComicCon earlier this year in Salt Lake City. So naturally, I have been wanting to do a shoot with her in her amazing costume!  I tried looking (still am looking) for the perfect tower for her and her “ruffian!” But then I learned about The Lantern Fest and I knew we had to try a shoot there! If you’ve never been – GO!!!! It’s magical and amazing! Worth all the traffic! ;) Without further ado, here’s our blonde beauty whose dream it is to see the floating lights! And yes…..her hair does GLOW!

Mrs. C’s Portraits

June 21, 2016 at 3:55 pm

I’ve known this beautiful lady for about 10 years and she is amazing! Super charismatic and down-to-earth real! She recently came into town for a conference with Younique Cosmetics from Texas and we were able to connect again while I took her portraits! The wind was strong and the sun was high in the sky, but that didn’t stop us from getting some great images! She executed the cinemagraph idea I had for her perfectly! Check out these fun summertime portraits and then go check out those awesome cosmetics!! They’re becoming a fast favorite of mine to photograph!

I met this adorably cute girl at the Utah Film Awards earlier this year and knew immediately I wanted to work with her! Later I found out she is one of the stars in Saturday’s Warrior! I’m so honored she agreed to work with me! I say work….but man, it’s seriously doesn’t feel like work! She is amazing! Check out this Sneak Peek from our shoot! Just a few of my ultimate favorites!

The K Family

Last week we travelled down to New Mexico where my family lives to celebrate my niece’s graduation. While we were down there, we met up with some good friends and I got to take their portraits! This cute couple moved to New Mexico last year and periodically welcome foster kids into their hearts and home when needed! They are a blast to be around and have such a contagious happy spirit! We found this amazingly green area near the Rio Grande and my parents’ house. I had no idea this beautiful place was even here!

Miss C’s Senior Portraits

I love working with graduating seniors! They have so much talent but also so much potential ahead of them in their lives. Being able to capture a bit of their personality in their lives and their future goals is amazing! This girl is no different. She is already working in the field of her choice as my husband Sound Editing Assistant! She is a big fan of ballroom dance, theater and the technical side of theater (the Behind the Scenes)! So what better place to capture a bit of what makes her up, than to start on the stage!

Took a Chance and had Some Fun!

May 17, 2016 at 1:43 pm

You can’t win if you don’t play. We’ve all heard this. I recently entered one of my latest cinemagraphs in a contest and won 3rd place! I am so jazzed about even just getting 3rd place! There’s so much talent out there, so I’m honored that they chose my cinemagraph as one of the winners!

This time we took to the mountains and hit up an awesome waterfall near us! My handsome husband graciously said he’d model for me! He’s much better at jumping than I am, so I opted to toss my hair, while he took the cooler route and did an awesome jump!

I’m looking forward to making many more of these. If you have an idea for a cinemagraph and want to collaborate, contact me and we can set it in motion!

And because I wanted in on the fun too…

Miss A’s Senior Portraits

It was such an fun experience to be able to shoot this amazing gal’s Senior Portraits. For one, she’s the sister of my last bride! So that was super fun to reconnect with this great family! And for another, this girl had already started acquiring her certificate for Surgical Technology from Salt Lake Community College! Anytime I hear of a High Schooler getting a jump start on their further education I can’t help but throw my hands in the air! And then face palm, cause I didn’t do that when I was younger! lol This rising generation is amazing and I’m so elated to be able to capture their brilliance!
