Heads Up.

I just want to let you all in on a couple things. First, I am only going to be booking 1 session/ week in 2008. The end of 2007 just got a little crazy for me between my photography and my other job, and I began realizing that my kids were suffering for it. They always need to come first and that wasn't happening with me working so much. Until they are a little older, this needs to stay a part-time thing for me.

This means that spots fill up much more quickly then before. In fact, February is almost full and March is getting there too so if you are looking for a winter session, book soon.

At this point, if you would like to book a shoot, please book at least a month in advance, I will not be able to squeeze in any more last minute sessions.

Starting in the spring, there will be a couple of other changes. There will be a bit of a price increase and I will also be trying to phase out of the studio a little more and do more shoots outdoors, and on location. Of course I will still keep some openings for studio work but I just love outdoor and natural light photography and eventually want to phase out the studio work all together in the warmer months.

I am also going to be announcing a portrait party soon. This will be an event where you can come and join other moms and their kids for mini sessions. The cost will be $30.00/ child with each additional sibling for $10.00. Each child will receive two portraits on CD. There will be food and good company and only 8 spots available so let me know if you are interested.

I am looking forward to working with all of you in 2008 and hopefully watch your children grow!

Farrah & Josh

I was excited when Farrah sent me an email saying they would be in town from Austin and wanted to do a shoot. I knew Josh and Farrah from my old neighborhood in Springville, the were Blake's Nursery teachers! They have been married for almost 10 years and it has been awhile since they had photos taken together. More couples need photos of themselves I think (Dave and I included!). We headed to downtown Salt Lake City for this one. They were SO much fun to hang out with and I had to remind myself that I was working because I couldn't stop chatting! I am so happy with what we got - I hope you guys are too! Hope you had a safe flight Josh!

Okay, this one is TOO CUTE!

Okay, it is a tough call but this is my favorite from the shoot. Just the way you are looking at him Farrah! Not to mention you are gorgeous!

Or this one, with a little texture!

And that gorgeous hair!

We took this one for fun!

The way she looks at you Josh, I think she plans to keep you!

Fine Art Prints

I love to photograph nature (nope, not just people, although that is fun too). My father instilled a strong love of nature in me, and I am grateful for photography that allows me to capture a little of it.

Here are some of the photographs I have taken, and if you are interested in purchasing a print, send me an email.

Some of these were taken in northern Michigan this past summer. It is a beautiful, peaceful place. Some were taken right here in Utah.
