Ain't She Cute?!?

This gorgeous senior had actually scheduled with me last October. I think we rescheduled at least 4 times because of weather and then finally had to postpone til now because of my big ol' belly. The weather wasn't cooperating on friday either, but we were running out of chances before graduation so we decided to give it a try anyway. The wind was blowing like crazy and it was freezing, but we got some beautiful ones of her.
Thanks so much "T"! I had a blast. I hope you enjoy your little sneak peak. There's MUCH more to come :)

Oh... and thanks to my photog friend, HOLLY who was out visiting. You were a huge help! :)

Kindergarten Concert

For miss B. She was sooo excited for her first concert after going to 3 of her big sister's performances. They did a Mr. Rogers theme and it turned at really cute. It was sooo funny to watch her. She kept her eye on us the whole time while she posed, smiled, and waved for us. You could just tell she was really proud to be up there. So fun!
and just so you can see the lovely view we had....
We actually started out with the perfect view. But right before the concert started, this 6&1/2 foot guy came and sat right infront of me! Cliff and I looked at each other and just started laughing. Oh well...

A little bit of Sunshine!

It's not going to last long so I had to take advantage of it. We almost hit 80 degrees this weekend!! I couldn't believe it!
Anyway, I grabbed H and took her out to the front yard to try out my new $3 parisol. She was a trooper for about 10 minutes, but I think I got a few good ones in our short little play date. :)
And for all of you waiting to register for SLC... registration opens tomorrow morning at 9am UTAH time!

Sooooo Excited!

Because I LOVE photography! LOVE it! I remember getting my first camera in grade school and inviting friends over to do photo shoots with. I would go through rolls and rolls and rolls of film. In highschool and college, I was always afraid to enroll in photography classes because I was sure that I wouldn't be good enough, that I didn't have the "artistic" part in me. When I was in my 20's, I didn't have the money to invest in equipment or classes. Finally, in my 30's something changed. It was okay to pursue what I wanted and I didn't care if others were better or if they would laugh at my lack of skill. AND, the finances were there.

I called my friend, Holly, who already had a successful photography business, and asked her to recommend a book that might teach me how to take better pictures of my kids. Two weeks later I had my first SLR. The addiction, the passion, the LOVE began!

18 months later, I now feel blessed with a talent that I'm still striving to learn more about and increase my skills in. It brings me joy to have someone else actually interested in talking to me about photography or asking me questions.

Though they may have been teasing requests, Holly and I have had requests to offer workshops to other aspiring photographers. At first we laughed these requests off with a "yeah right" and "why us?" After some discussion the laughing became, "Why not" and "How fun would that be?!" So now, after a lot of planning, we are ready to offer our first Beginners Photography Workshop!!

We would love for YOU to come and learn as much as we have to offer. If you're interested you can learn more about it by going to
Picture Life

I can't wait to see you all there!!!
