Paige & Leo

July 31, 2014

This was one of my absolute favorite shoots that I’ve ever done in my studio.  Ms Paige was just overflowing with personality, a complete natural in front of the camera and we had SO much fun playing dress up and tea party!  I just can barely narrow it down to my favorites so this will be a long post.

First, the tea party (with Mr Bear dressed in Drag, what a trooper!)

And just loved when his big sister read one of her favorite books “The Napping House” to him. Paige is an amazing reader for her age!

He didn’t object to a little snuggle either!

This is one of my favorite shots from the session:

Before they left, I couldn’t resist a few outdoor shots on the way to their car.  The grounds of my studio have some unexpected little nooks that are perfect for pictures!

That last image dates the session, yes I’m playing blog catch up as usual. Can’t wait to share a few more of the amazing sessions I’ve had this year!

Voice Collection

July 14, 2014

I am so thrilled to announce that two of my images were chosen as Selections in the VOICE digital print competition and will appear in the VOICE gallery at the Click Away conference in Salt Lake City this Fall!   There were over 8000 entries which were narrowed down to just 254 for the collection, so to have two of my images included is a huge honor.

This image of my twins is included in the “Connections” category:

And, in a rare appearance in FRONT of the camera, this self portrait I made is included in the Self Portrait category:

It’s so humbling to see my work along side all of the gorgeous images that make up the complete collection and I can’t wait to see them in print and in person in Salt Lake City!

It’s no secret that I love Canon, so when I was approached for inclusion in their Mother’s Day ad campaign I was incredibly honored and of course thrilled!  You may have even seen it as it was circulated in approximately 8 million papers nationwide.

I’m so happy that they chose to use an image of my son Jasper with his Bear.  If you are familiar at all with my past work you have probably seen many Bear appearances throughout the years – he’s practically a 6th family member!  I’m a big believer in including lovey’s in photoshoots- so if you  have a shoot scheduled with me do not hesitate one BIT to bring your child’s favorite toy.

And, keep an eye on your local paper the Sunday before Father’s day for another image of  mine- yay!

Perez Family

March 10, 2014

Getting to meet wonderful families is one of my favorite parts of this job, and I am so fortunate to count many clients now as friends. And then every once in a while a family comes along who are so connected that their love for each other just jumps out in every frame and you kind of want them to adopt you! That’s what it was like photographing the Perez family.  When Susan gave Felix (who is also a photographer!) the gift of a photo session with me, little did she know what a gift they were giving me by choosing me to capture their family photos.

I had the pleasure of meeting Shayna in a workshop when I was pregnant with my twins, so I was thrilled and honored that she choose me to capture her family’s images this past fall.  (Yes, I’m in catch-up mode for blogging but I worked with so many wonderful families during busy season that I am determined to share despite the time lapse!)

 As a photographer myself I understand how you are  the one always taking the pictures and how meaningful it is to have photographs with YOU in them that you and your children will treasure forever and I am so grateful that you chose me for this important task!
