I’m finally sharing some of my favorite sessions from last year. This family is the best! I’ve been photographing them for at least 5 years. Yes FIVE beautiful girls there and their Mom and Dad are the sweetest, kindest people ever. I seriously love when I build friendships with my clients like I have with…
IT IS WHAT IT IS...
is one of my favorite sayings.
Life doesn't always go how we dreamed it would. Our house isn't always spotless and decorated perfectly for each holiday or birthday. Sometimes our "skinny" jeans don't fit how their supposed to. But, IT IS WHAT IT IS, and you just have to learn to be ok with it.
I am a mom of 5 kids. One is my Guardian Angel who lives in Heaven and four more who create the chaos in which I live and who push me to accomplish everything that I am somehow able to accomplish everyday! My life is pretty crazy every day, but for some reason I get more done in the midst of all the crazy! I accomplish more the busier I am. (I know, I don't get it either!) It's pretty tricky to balance my everyday life as a mom to my energetic kids, being a wife to my best friend and busy husband, and my business Somehow it all works out, and I love it!
I am definitely a t-shirt/jeans type of girl! I try to get dressed up, and I just don't feel like myself. I love skinny jeans (even though my husband doesn't), and flip flops and flats (I don't own a pair of heels).
I love and need pilates and, you know, that running stuff... yeah, I do that too, but it doesn't top my list of favorites. I like it but don't love it, but I do it! I do know that when I get some exercise in regularly I feel better and am happier.
I love Mexican food but also love a good salad, love Oreo shakes but don't love plain Oreos, drink water all day long and rarely have soda. I love living in Utah because of the changing seasons. I love the Fall leaves, especially in the mountains, I deal with the Winter snow, (not a big fan of these long winters,) I wish spring lasted a little longer, and I love the sunshine and warm evenings that comes with summer.
I have a strong faith in God and a belief that you should do unto others as you want to be treated.
I started shooting with my first film camera in 2001 and loved film while I was shooting with it, but I can say that I love the options that we have with digital. I enjoy each and every child, family, high school senior, or bride and groom that I get to spend time with. I love that I end up with lifelong friendships from so many of my clients. I hope to get to know you soon and hope that I can help you create some memorable and crazy moments that you will always have to cherish.
