Rock The Shot February Challenge

I'm 29 weeks pregnant and my youngest can hardly wait for her baby brother to get here.  Today she was in his room rocking in his chair, and reading his book.  I absolutely love this capture.  

I haven't entered a contest for awhile but I love this image so much I decided to enter it.  I just had to photograph something redI love my Liv's lips, they are always deep red.  Along with the giant T-Rex popping out.:)

Visit to see my submission.

Nathan The Missionary/Senior

I love photographing young men, especially when they are trying to get comfortable with the camera. I don't think Nathan ever loosened up, but you can't tell. I love the candids we got of him.  He'll make a wonderful missionary!

Carter's Baptism

I had the greatest time at this session. I was really stressing on what I was going to do for it, I wanted it to be amazing, something new and different. And then the song "Armies of Helaman" came to my mind and it all came together. Carter loved the idea, and I love how it turned out. I love it when I have my own ideas and they turn out just how I pictured them, this one turned out even better then I imagined. I'm so grateful for my talent!

One Year

It's been a year to the day since I started this little business of mine.  I've learned so much about myself, photography, and people.  It hasn't always been easy, I've been met with some opposition that I didn't anticipate.  But I know that I have a talent and I'm grateful for it.  I've learned from that opposition and have become a better person and photographer.  I'm so thankful for all my friends, family, and clients for making this dream a reality. 

Here's the top 10 reasons I LOVE photography (in no particular order). 

1. I've gained more confidence in myself. 
2. I can find beauty in anything and notice how beautiful the world is a lot more often now. 
3. Pictures are priceless once the ones you are photographing have left this earth. 
4. I love being around families. They all teach me something new and help me to become a better wife and mother. 
 5. I'm always amazed at the kindness of others who have helped me by supporting, answering questions, and helping me continue to learn.
 6. I LOVE capturing candid moments, they are my favorite. 
 7. My eyes are always on the lookout for a new location and I love how excited I get when I find one. 
8. I love getting feedback on my pictures, so THANK YOU for the likes and sweet comments on my work. 
9. I love having my little Livy randomly say, "Hey mom do you think this would be a good pose?" Or, "Okay mom (grabbing her pretend camera) you need to put your hand here, and make your face like this.....good job baby that's perfect." 
10. And I LOVE buying new lenses and having a passion for learning more!

Here's a quick glimpse of my first year in business (in no particular order).

Headshots For A Talented Actress

This beautiful talented girl is a Utah State college student. I have a soft spot in my heart for Aggies, since I also went to there. We had a great time taking shots for her portfolio. She's going to go places and one day I'll get to say..."I KNOW HER!"
