So excited to shoot these beautiful people tomorrow! It’s going to be beautiful!
The inspiration for this shoot was born in the middle of last winter, when it was cold and grey, and I was yearning for sun and color. It was executed on a hot day last June, surrounded by forest fires, with ash falling on our heads. From start to finish, this was a project of love and I can honestly say this body of work, is some of my proudest. I wanted to challenge myself, and in the process had the amazing blessing of working with some of the most beautiful and talented women around. I can’t say enough thank you’s to Sarah Winward, Jayne Swallow, Melissa Blackburn and April Benincosa for their talent, friendship, and incredible collaboration! A huge thank you to Mari and Blake for being our beautiful models and to my husband, Scott, for making 6 dozen bundt cakes, being the heavy lifter, U-haul driver, and all-around, wonderful supporter that he is. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
And I’m so excited to share that this shoot is featured in the current edition of Utah Bride and Groom! Thank you Val for the beautiful feature! There are so many wonderful articles and beautiful weddings in this issue! I’m honored to be a part of such an amazing magazine and collection of work.
Surprise! They have a baby! How cute are they?
The best part of winter is the snow, and I’m so honored to have photographed these two lovebirds in a particularly lovely one!
I may be having a hard time waiting to share this inspiration shoot. A very, very hard time.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
Over a year ago I shot at this beautiful Berry Farm in Payson, Utah. I couldn’t get Phelps Berry Farm off my mind, and a year later this Raspberry inspired shoot was born. I’m going to post the full shoot later this week, but I wanted to give a quick glimpse and say thank you to all the wonderful, beautiful, talented women who collaborated on this project. And Style Me Pretty for featuring it today! Pretty please with a raspberry on top, head on over and send some love our way. This was my secret baby project for over a year, and I couldn’t be prouder or more grateful for all the friendships, talent, and beauty that came together on shoot.
Thank you to the wonderful team at Style Me Pretty for featuring this today! We are so honored!
