This lovely family had their winter session not too long ago, but Mrs. C here was the winner of my Fall Portrait Contest, so they received a FREE session! They have such beautiful daughters and one stud of a son, I always have so much fun with them! The fall colors in the canyon were spectacular, I’m so glad we were able to get such brilliant colors as they are already started to fade into winter dreariness just 1 week later! There’s still some brilliant colors in the valley, so I definitely suggest not delaying if you haven’t scheduled your portrait session!
If you’ve followed me for any amount of time at all, you may or may not have seen this beautiful mom of 5, but you have definitely seen her amazing modest clothing designs! We were able to get together this past weekend and photograph her sweet family in a most beautiful orchard! I loved their outfits and how they coordinated perfectly with the apples on the trees! It was a super special day as well, since it was this amazing dad’s birthday, so naturally donuts and ice cream after the shoot were in order and I got to tag along!
I’ve been waiting on this gorgeous family to schedule their family portraits with me for a few years! ;) Life gets busy! I know how it is! So don’t procrastinate any longer! If your last family portrait is more than a couple years old – Schedule NOW! I do mini sessions at your convenience for those with busy families or over-active kids! I work quickly, but I’m awesome at it!
Back to this beautiful family!! Flowing locks of golden hair, with a pop of blue to give it the right amount of sass! Dad served an LDS Mission to Hawaii so you’ll see a familiar sign in these! The colors in the Provo canyon just had us all giddy!
This gorgeous family took advantage of the beautiful sunflower field I held mini sessions in. The grandmother contacted me from Phoenix! Turns out, she is also a photographer (White Deer Studio) and would be in Utah visiting her daughter! So we secured a spot for them tout suite! I absolutely love this field and how these portraits came out! The sunflowers were huge and getting heavy from their seeds, but they were gorgeous!
These two love birds have had many adventures together and are embarking on the greatest adventure of all: Marriage! We went to the State Capitol Building for their engagement session. In the 14 years I’ve been in Utah, I’ve never been there before so I was pretty excited to get some great shots of this lovely couple around all that history and great architecture!
And we also hit up City Creek for a pretty amazing cinemagraph!
Fall colors are here!!!! Don’t delay or it may be too late to get those gorgeous colors. Last year a fungus made the trees lose all their leaves super quick….within days….reports are the trees are healthy this year! So we’ll have a few weeks with those amazing colors we all love so much, but they’ll be gone before we know it and the snow will start. :P Does anyone else feel like time is just going faster and faster? Our summer went by way too fast. But we also had lots of fun!
This fall I want to give a little extra to my wonderful clients! So with your session you’ll also be receiving a FREE 16×20 Luster Print, printed at my local pro lab! If you need a different size, just let me know and we’ll work it out! This offer is only valid for the month of September through October! As always you will receive your edited images by digital download and you will have printing rights to use as you’d like. Get ready for your Christmas Cards by getting your family portraits done early!!! ;) Let’s get those portrait sessions booked! There are limited spots!
This shoot was for testing out a new product that I’ve fallen in love with recently. Younique Makeup, I first heard about it through a friend, then a cousin, then another cousin, then another friend….well, you get the picture. I finally tried some basic products and loved it! But there was another side to just how it felt that I noticed…..I noticed that it photographs really well! Just as well as another beloved cosmetic product that the industry loves so much. I hear time and time again, that the ‘beloved’ product felt horrible. It weighs you down, makes you break out. Yes, photographs beautifully and has a great staying power. A little too great actually, I once tried a lip stain of their for a Film Awards Show. I wanted a cherry red to match the dress I’d be wearing, but it came out pink against my skin color. :/ It lasted for 3 days even after trying makeup remover, rubbing alcohol, and lots of elbow grease. I hated it, wanted it off. The foundation and powder looked great yet just as everyone’s reports, it was heavy and felt cake-y. When I tried Younique’s Liquid Touch Foundation, I was sold! It didn’t feel as any other foundation that I had tried before! I hardly felt like I was wearing any at all. Then I learned about the Younique Foundation and all the good that they do for those who have been through traumatic experiences in their lives from sexual abuse. Younique Products exist because of the foundation! But they took it one step further, these products are all natural, and because they are all natural, they don’t need to test them on animals! They just keep blowing me away! The 3D Fiber Lash Mascara is my favorite product!
Anyhoo, I wanted to try it out on someone else. I set up with my friend and model, Alex Shuey, to come by for a photo shoot. She mentioned that her eyelashes were in recovery from multiple eyelash extensions. Perfect! So here’s my “test” shoot! Testing these great products…..you really need to try them out for yourself! Looking through these, keep in mind, minimal editing has been done. No retouching of the face has been done.
Younique Products Model is wearing:
Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lash Mascara
Mineral Touch Liquid Foundation in Taffeta
Addiction Eye Shadow Palette 1
Splurge Cream Shadow in Elegant
And we can’t forget the cinemagraph! *teehee*
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!
I loved getting to work with this beautiful woman to update her Realtor headshots! I’ve gotten to shoot with two of her daughters and now I was able to shoot with her! She is with Coldwell Banker and I hear she is a fabulous realtor! If you’re needing a realtor, you can contact her through here!
