An American Mom Hero

July 14, 2017 at 11:08 pm

This super cute mama has left for a medical deployment for the next year. I had the honor of going to her Send-Off Party where her closest friends and family were able to say good-bye. Now, I’ve known this mama for years. She and I are in a Facebook Mom Group, that’s where I first met her. Then she’s booked me for several occasions. This one… was very emotional. These two cuties are so near and dear to her, it’s such a huge sacrifice to leave them while they’re still so young. And this is the embodiment of our military. Their love for this country is astounding and runs so deep that they are willing to make this kind of sacrifice to go to serve others. It’s so admirable and exceptional. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all the Service Men and Women, and to their spouses!

Fall Portrait Special

September 2, 2016 at 10:53 am

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!


Test Shoot with Model Alex Shuey

August 30, 2016 at 9:10 pm

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*

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!
