Beech- Linton Wedding

August 16, 2015 at 9:45 pm

I’ve had the extreme pleasure of working with the couple for much of their engagement. This lovely couple met and fell in love at Snow College!

We started off with the First Look where the Groom saw his Bride-to-be in her dress for the first time!


Isn’t her dress so sweet? She reminded me of a Vintage Southern Belle! I loved it! This couple was so natural in front of the camera so it was so easy to take LOTS of pictures of them!



This HDR image was one of my favorites!


The day of the wedding quickly approached and in a blink of an eye, I was capturing these two exit out of the Mt Timpanogos Temple as Mr. & Mrs Linton!






But we aren’t done yet…on to the reception! This was a very lovely reception held at Magnolia Grove!








Congratulations Mr & Mrs. Linton on your Happily Forever After! Thank you for letting me share this journey with you!

Miss A’s Senior Portraits

August 16, 2015 at 3:44 pm

What’s a girl to do who has a photographer for an aunt!? She’d better grin and bear it! This post has been in the making for months. We started taking A’s senior pictures out in San Diego at Balboa Park back in December. Many of those turned out super cute but traveling sure does a number on a graduation gown. It was definitely a learning experience to make sure to take a steamer or something! So we didn’t end up with as much as we wanted to. We decided to have a second shoot in June in New Mexico where they live! Plus, I feel that Senior Portraits should be very personal to the graduate. I want them to be surrounded by things that make them who they are; things and places that define their world and show off what makes them so FABULOUS! This girl is quite amazing! Earlier this summer she attended a preview for the Naval Academy! There are only a few chosen from each location and she was selected! I love this girl so very much and I’m proud of her for all her accomplishments and goals!

Congratulations Miss A! I know you’ll go far! Love you Loads!

Mr A 18 month session

April 20, 2015 at 10:19 pm

18 months old, it is really hard to believe that he’s that old already! I am seriously boggled at how fast it’s gone! This guy, like most toddlers his age, is always on the move! But with the help of my awesomely sweet husband, I was able to get some uber cute shots of our Little with his pals from the Hundred acre wood!


I was even able to convince Big Brother and Big Sister to join in on the fun!


Welcome to Earth Baby P!

December 5, 2014 at 10:24 am

Remember this beautiful pregnant ballerina?! She brought her sweet little love for his newborn portraits and for some fun Christmas shots as well! Mr. P is 13 days old in these images! The basket he is in is really special as it belonged to his Great-Grandma Athalee! I absolutely loved how all these came out, he was adorable and quite perfect!



Our Family Portaits

December 5, 2014 at 10:12 am

Sometimes the photographer is last to get her portraits in! But I’m so glad we finally did! I found this amazing spot earlier this year and fell in love with the location but I didn’t want to set up the tripod again cause we’d be limited, plus….we’ve got this crazy toddler running around nowadays! So I enlisted the help again of my talented brother-in-law, Matt, to take our photos! Check em out! I took the kids’ individuals and he took our family shots!


It was not easy keeping the little one still! He loves to escape and he’s really good at it! He’s our little Houdini!


G Family Session

December 5, 2014 at 10:01 am

I’ve had the honor of taking this family’s portraits for several years now and the kids just keep getting cuter and cuter! We always have their session in the same spot as it holds special meaning to them, mom and dad had their first pictures taken here when they were first starting off! It’s fun to see how their family has grown throughout the years in the same location!


Happy Thanksgiving!

November 24, 2014 at 1:44 pm

Thanksgiving has always been a special time of year for me because of my Grandma Jessie. She was born on the 22nd of November 1920. We went to her house nearly every Thanksgiving growing up, surrounding by Aunts and Uncles, Cousins and dogs! I don’t think my Grandma ever had fewer than 3 dogs at a time! Being a new dog-owner, I don’t know how she did it! ;)

Anyhow I hope you don’t mind this break from the photography posts to have a decor post! It makes me happy to beautify my world! I like to add to my decor piece by piece. I love how rooms evolve, and holidays evolve. I especially love when the decor holds meaning. I have always loved Sunflowers! They are amazing botanical creations, sunflowers not only look like the sun…they follow it. They follow the light, and that’s what I try to do in my life as well! You might notice a general color trend in all my decor – Turquoise! It’s not just cause it’s a fashionable color this season. It’s because of where I was born – Taos, New Mexico – and a bit of my own heritage. Being so close to a pueblo, we had a lot of the Native American culture growing up (plus I am 1/8th Native!), so turquoise was everywhere! So I’ve just always kept that in my life and home! Both my husband’s grandmother and my Grandma Jessie, loved owls. The wooden owl seen here my husband brought back from England for his Grandma Athalee. When she passed on, he kept it to remember her by. It usually resides in our curio cabinet, protected from the kids! But I thought it should come out and bless us with remembrance! The two white porcelain owls on either side are a new addition this year, in honor of my Grandma Jesse. The “Give Thanks” banner I made years ago with a group of girls from Activity Days with our previous ward (LDS congregation) in Provo.


When we moved into this house we started a new Thanksgiving tradition; Our Gratitude Tree! We all write the things we are grateful for on leaves. While the trees are going bare outside, we fill ours up inside! The kids love it! And I’ve definitely seen a change in the things they are grateful for, it started out with toys and video games and lately reflects more on the Savior and His gifts to us! it’s a tradition I hope to always continue and I hope my children will continue it in their homes as well!


I hope each of you hold close those that matter this holiday season. Take time to tell them you care. Happy Thanksgiving!
