Jean's Bridals and NEWS!

Hey all! Sorry my posts have been pretty sparse! I've been traveling and helping my little sister get married so this has kinda been on the back burner. Today I wanted to share some of the Bridals I took for my sister last month. We took them in my parents' neighbor's gorgeous backyard. Is was super sunny and very hot so we worked quickly and I'm pleased with the results. Hope you appreciate them too!

This last image is a composite of two images. The original had a vinyl fence and suburban house tops in the back ground. My older sister wanted a shot from behind the way Jean was standing in that spot so I took it, cut out the original background and spliced this image in.

And now for the NEWS! I am going to be relocating to Hemet, CA. I will be living on my family's rural property outside of the city. I am so excited for the opportunity this is giving me to expand my photography! I hope to be doing a lot more with my work in the coming year! If you are in the Inland Empire area of southern California, contact me and lets set up some photo shoots!

Jean and Nate's Save The Date Shoot

My little sister is getting married this summer so she wanted to get some pictures to send out as save the dates. We had a lot of fun running around Soda Row and the lake in Daybreak in South Jordan, UT. She and Nate are so cute together and I don't think I've ever seen her so happy. This shoot really captures them as a couple. I love how they would just take off running or start doing something silly completely on their own (notice them running down the snowy dock ready to jump into the freezing lake). There were too many great pictures from today but here are the ones I've finished so far...

Christina's Maternity Session

A couple weeks ago I was lucky to get the opportunity to shoot an old High School friend's maternity pictures. Since it's cold and yucky in Utah this time of year we decided to set up some back drops and lights in my living room instead of dealing with the weather.
