The K Family

May 27, 2016 at 3:45 pm

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…

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!

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!

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!

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!
