Fall Fashion Shoot Part 2 - Utah Fashion Photography

Sometimes this is how I feel about my hair when I wake up in the morning, so many tangles and wild strands. haha I love this series, probably my favorite of the bunch, who knew. It's funny how that happens with sessions, I go into it thinking a different set will be my favorite, and then I am surprised!

She has the most beautiful collar bones and neck, don't you think? I am slowly working through all these images, I'll try to post the rest of the girls by the weekend, I know you are all dying to see some. Also, for those under 18, I will be e-mailing another model release for you to sign and a parent to sign. ; )

Fall Fashion Shoot - Part 1 - Utah Fashion Photographer

Here are a few images from my Fall Fashion Shoot last night. I had 7 gorgeous girls come to be models, and we had a blast! I haven't seen that much girl stuff in one house since my cheerleading days. My husband took the kids out with him all night and delivered pizza to us in the middle of the madness. He is so sweet, he just laughed and said our house had thrown up girl! haha Later he told the stylist that he didn't mind; that's what he signed up for when he married a photographer! I love him!!

Thanks girls for coming, waiting, and being yourself in front of the camera. And a big thank you to my wonderful makeup artist who I worked to death. Brittany, please list your contact info in the comments. 

Also, I forgot to tell you all last night, but if you'd like to order any professional prints from me I will give you all 20% off as another thank you!

Well, this was all I had time to post today, but like I said there were 7 beautiful ladies, so there will be lots more in the next few days! ; )

Heart Gallery - Adoption Gallery Show

Meet Brian, we did a mini shoot last week to prepare for the 2010-2011 Heart Gallery Show. For those that don't know, every year they do a traveling gallery show with kids that need parents and families to call their own. I am so honored to be a part of this year's gallery events and hope it creates miracles for these kids and many others like them...

Brian is a very polite kid, a little quiet, but I only got to spend 30 minutes with him. He's got the most gorgeous brown eyes and cute dimples, and yes, along with many other kids, he's in need of a forever home. We're hoping these pictures will inspire someone out there!!

Brian, thanks for trusting me to take your pictures, I promised I'd let you pick which one to show! Let me know which one (one of you smiling) you'd like as the gallery 16x20, and which one you'd like for yourself as an 8x10. : )

To All My Lovely Clients,

I just updated my "about" section on the web, and on the "About" tab here on the blog as well. There aren't many business changes except my new Session Scheduling.

Welcome to my 3 ring circus! Well, it's only a circus now and then, but I do struggle with my balancing act everyday. These little cuties are my life and joy, and my greatest accomplishment. I am sincere in my effort to to be a mother first, and a photographer second, (although I love photography as much as my family, so some days this is extremely difficult). It is such a joy, and a challenge, to be mentally and physically available to my children when they really need me.

Because of this commitment, and because my children are so young, I am cutting back. Just for a few years! I will now pour my heart and soul into just TWO, carefully selected Sessions every month (which book quickly, I am usually booked 2-3 months out at a time). 

Photography has been my life and passion for more than 12 years now. My brother bought me my first camera when I was 18; it was completely manual Penatx SLR that shot film! I've come a long way and learned a lot from that little camera. After years of trial, I now know that I love to create images of children that are either deliciously modern, or images that have vintage feel. I also relish in passionate teens, romantic women and dance. My images are simple, colorful, fun, and fresh.

In addition to my years of experience, I have been trained by the nation's greatest in every field; so you can count on exceptional results. I realize there are a lot of choices in this market today, and I don't take lightly my commitment to produce beautiful, personal, and timeless art for your home. I only work with one client at a time, start to finish, so you get the ultimate in customer service.  I also take the time to get to know who you really are, creating images where your personality shines through.

If you'd like to schedule a fun session, give me a call. I'd love to work with you!

I'd also like to add a Q&A on the about tab. Post any questions you have about me in the comments and I'll answer them!

New Self Portraits

I was forced to do an updated picture this week, I haven't taken a headshot in years so I was long overdue.  Luckily, this time, my lovely assistant Chantel came to the rescue so I didn't have to do these tripod style. : ) 
 Here are 2 of my fav's, I'll post a few more soon.
Which one do you like best?

I'm In Love

With clothes! The newest Anthropologie collection is to die for! I love the photography, the location, the horses, and the clothes. This is how I would dress everyday if I could; and I would kill for the chance to shoot that catalogue.

Sigh, if only I were made of money. 

Until then I'll make do with casual mass production...Old Navy here I come.
