Local Flavor

I have been participating in a daily photo challenge every day of this year so far. I’m amazed that I’ve kept up with it every day, but it has been so much fun, and I look forward to each new challenge. There is something wonderful about going through each day purposefully looking for something interesting […]

Find me on instagram

I hate to say it, but I think I might be done posting here on this blog. There are a bunch of reasons, but mainly, I find myself wanting to write about things that I am unsure about sharing publicly. I am leaving it here just in case the mood strikes, because I’ve felt like […]

Meet Dixie

“It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life.” ~Julius Caesar A few days ago, I had the opportunity to meet and photograph the coolest woman. She and her husband live in a charming, old home that has personality to spare. The minute I walked in the door, I was […]

Families, kids, individuals, seniors…any type of portraits. (except nudies…ha ha) It’s the perfect time to do pictures for Christmas cards, gifts or to […]

Jewelry photo shoot

I am in the process of shooting pictures of people wearing some of my jewelry for various promotional pieces, so today I took two beautiful girls into the canyon to photograph them with some of the finished jewelry. Here is my concern: I think these girls might be too pretty. I mean, is anyone even […]

too many.

It was a gorgeous October day. The weather was glorious. A perfect day to be outdoors. I spent the morning photographing an event for the Utah Share organization. It is a volunteer-based group that helps families who have experienced pregnancy or infant loss. It was a wonderful thing to be a part of. There was […]

Perspective

I am melting. Last night around midnight, our power flickered and now half of the house hasn’t any power. Bathrooms are dark, but the kitchen has power. So, I’m doing my hair next to the fridge. The power company said it’s going to be a few days till it’s back to normal, but meanwhile, the […]

where to eat

Last night I did a shoot at a restaurant I’ve never been to before. It was the coolest place and the food was SO good. What was in those mashed potatoes? Parmesan? Butter? Whatever it was…yum. It’s called Em’s, and it’s right below the state capitol.

Recipe art

I had this idea to create art for my kitchen wall using a family favorite recipe. I polled my little family as to which recipe or food I make that is their favorite, and they all said without hesitation, “Famous”. That’s what they call my chocolate chip cookies. They really aren’t famous. Only, to the […]

Koryn

I don’t know about you, but each of my friends are very different from one another. Each of them seems to mesh with a side of me that no one else understands quite as well as they do. I love this. I love knowing that if I am in the mood to do some crazy […]

It’s like a time capsule.

I saw this wedding video that was more like a music video that was just beyond awesome. I seriously watched it like 15 times, and I don’t even know the bride and groom. The videographer that did it is super talented and I read a Q and A with him where he talks about the […]

Well-Being, Degas, and a lovely ballerina

Yay for the sunshine today! I made sure to soak it up as much as possible because I think more rain and cold is coming. I went shopping at Target today where they were giving out samples of some new kind of Trident gum. I was told, “Besides the delicious minty flavor, it’s supposed to […]

Jenny B

I roped my friend Jenny into letting me take her picture. I sure hope people don’t start avoiding me because I ask them to do this. Isn’t she lovely? I’m posting my top three faves.

Carissa and crew

This is my most recent photo shoot, and just for fun, I did a tiny bit of video in between shots and put it all together here… This is the cutest little family of three and this sweet 7 month old baby made made me miss mine! I wish I could have each of my […]

Who doesn’t love a before and after?

At the WPPI convention this past February, the best class I attended was given by a photographer from New Zealand named Sue Bryce. She is amazing. Her work was jaw-dropping gorgeous. It was in her lecture that I had the epiphany about what I want to shoot when I come back to working in the […]
