The H Family Portraits

April 28, 2016 at 10:31 pm

I was happy to meet this gorgeous family at the Orchard Mini Sessions as well! They drove from Toeele to join in and I am so glad they did! Their kids are adorably cute just like Mom & Dad! Their smiles were amazing and I just love how their family shot came together! The sun joined us in this session warming everything up wonderfully!

This adorable family came back to get take advantage of the awesome Spring Minis at the Provo Orchard. The blossoms were big and beautiful even though the trees had started filling in with green! It made for a gorgeous setting, as I knew it would!

Waterfall Cinemagraphs

April 20, 2016 at 10:38 pm

At it again, making more awesome cinemagraphs! 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 stand for my pose! 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!

Miss C’s Senior Portraits

April 16, 2016 at 4:34 pm

I love that I get to shoot a variety of moments in the lives of my clients! Graduating Seniors are embarking on a  whole new life and their portraits are not only to capture that moment in time before they head off into the big world, but also to showcase what makes them up and all they’ve accomplished! This shoot was incredible, cause this girl is incredible! She loves tennis, so that was definitely something we wanted to showcase! I am so excited about these images and have been dying to share these!

Mythica Cast Members

April 15, 2016 at 2:34 pm

For the last couple of years, my husband has been working on the Independent Fantasy film series, Mythica. (If you like Fantasy movies, I HIGHLY recommend it!!) He is the Re-Recording Mixer with BluFire Studios and he’s gotten to know the cast as they’ve come in for ADR sessions for the movies. These actors are amazing, they’re incredibly talented but still so down-to-earth and personable! The film series is done shooting, the last couple of movies is in post-production as we speak. But while the cast was in town for Salt Lake City’s FanX Con, they were super awesome about squeezing in a quick photo session with me! We weren’t able to get the entire main cast, but we had 3 of them! We have plans in May to get together with all 4! I’m really looking forward to that! For now, here are Adam Johnson, Nicola Posener and Jake Stormoen!

Introducing Mr & Mrs Lauritzen!

April 1, 2016 at 11:40 pm

I’ve been with this couple the whole way; I shot their Engagement Session, First Look & Formal Sessions. It all led up to their amazingly beautiful wedding day. And as my images are far more interesting than my words, I’ll just get right to it!

It’s Great to be 8, Double the Joy

March 11, 2016 at 12:19 pm

I was going through my blog, making sure my tags were placed and I was up-to-date and then I noticed….I had missed a very important post back in September. Yikes! You know that age-old where the middle child kinda gets the shaft. :( Well, my sweet, amazing and wonderful middle child turned 8 in August, baptized in September! And we totally had an amazing “Great to be 8” Session with his cousin who is the same age….but I with lots of other things going on, it failed to make it onto the blog. At least, that’s all I forgot! *teehee* My sweet Boy Blue, as lovingly called by his maternal grandmother, is one of those incredibly happy kids that loves every last drop of fun out of life! He is known for always stopping and smelling the flowers, every time, and is loyal through and through! He and his cousin were born 2 weeks apart in August and both missed the Stake cut-off so we got special permission (as you have to here in Utah when you live in different areas) to combine the boys’ baptisms! I’m so glad we were able to do that. I love that my kids have cousins around the same ages as theirs! Cousins make growing up fun! I’m proud of these 2 boys and all that they are!

Sifting Cinemagraph

February 29, 2016 at 12:24 pm

I’m sure you’ve all seen these fun cinemagraphs that have been going around. And cause I’m a big Harry Potter fan (moving pictures), I have been wanting to learn how to create these for months. I finally got some time over the weekend to learn how to do it! This is my very first cinemagraph! Each cinemagraph should tell a story. This weekend I made a gluten-free angel food cake from scratch, the recipe suggested having a stand mixer, but I don’t have one for lack of counter space. So while I sifted the dry ingredients (which is a must), I rigged myself a stand mixer to whip the egg whites into a meringue! All the while keeping an eye on the stability of the mixer on my fruit stand! lol By the way, the cake was incredibly delicious! Not bad for my first angel food cake from scratch or for my first cinemagraph, eh?!

Senior Model Ambassadors

February 22, 2016 at 10:41 pm

SeniorAmbassadorblog

 

I am in search of my 2016 Senior Ambassadors!! What does this entail?! No, you don’t have to be a super model…just be an outgoing, fun-spirited person! If you are a 2016 Graduating Senior, it’s some very easy and fun work! Basically, I shoot your Senior Portraits for free, give you some Rep cards and you promote Zion’s Studio to your friends. Throughout the year, you will see your portraits on marketing materials, social media and anywhere else I think your images would look great! Most likely the conversation will happen on it’s own, because they will all see your AMAZING portraits that I did for you! *wink, wink* So there’s no awkwardness in having to bring it up! The more of your referrals that complete their sessions with me, the more you will earn in Gift Certificates to local merchants or Visa Gift Cards! Score! (Here’s some fine print for ya: Referrals Bonuses start after 2 completed referral sessions and may not exceed $600)

I know you all are waving your hands, saying “Pick me! Pick me!” and I’d love to pick all of you…cause I’m just that nice! But I do have a limited amount of Ambassador Positions. You will need to fill out the application form below before March 31st. It is then, that I will finalize who my Senior Ambassadors will be. In the Message section please tell me which High School you are going to and why you should be chosen to represent Zion’s Studio. The geographic area of High Schools is limited to Salt Lake and Utah Counties. Please do not apply if you are currently representing another photography studio.

****Form has been removed because the Program is currently closed for 2016 graduates. Please follow me to find out when applications open up for the 2017 Senior Ambassadors program in late 2016!****
