Wish Retreat 2012 {Utah Photographer Workshop}

After Wish Retreat 2011 I knew I had to put on another retreat for 2012.  I started planning Wish Retreat 2012 in September 2011.  Wish Retreat 2012 book up in 7 days.   This year I extended my retreat 1 day longer and made the shoots a lot more functional and fabulous!

The women were wonderful and we had a remarkable time.  I met some amazing friends and I consider them friends for life!

We did 11 shoots in 3 days, we ate great food and we laughed until we had headaches.

I am grateful for the ability I have to put on my workshop and I am blessed to have so many women trust me so much.

Here’s a few candids from Wish Retreat 2012


Lyle and Amber {Utah Wedding Photographer}

The first time I met Amber I knew that we were going to be friends for a long long time.

Photographing their formal portraits meant the world to me as I simply adore these two.  Amber and Lyle were going to be getting married in California during a small intimate ceremony…..because I wasn’t photographing their ceremony I was elated to photograph them prior.

I love their simple style!

Enjoy this peek!


Tyler and T’Ann {Utah Engagement Photographer}

These two make me so happy! They are so in love and so cute together.  The way Tyler looks at T’Ann is the way thatI could only imagine Romeo looked at Juliet…with un-dying love.

Tyler and I went to Junior and High School together and we remained friends ever since.

Since then I have gotten to know T’Ann and T’Ann now is the makeup artist for many of my photo sessions.

Enjoy a peek at their session.



Miss T’Ann {Utah Portrait Photographer}

I simply adore this lady! T’Ann is so lovely and full of joy and life.  T’Ann and I know each other through her husband.  I went to school with her hubby and have known him for years.  Through him we got to know each other.

She is a fabulous makeup artist and as a matter of fact she is the makeup artist who did all the makeup for my 2013 Wish Retreat and will be doing my 2014 Wish Retreat makeup as well.

I am so grateful for wonderful friends who trust me enough to have me photograph them.

I love my job and it’s people like T’Ann that make it even more wonderful.

Maui Wowie {Utah Portrait Photographer}

Maui was marvelous!

I could seriously end this blog post there….but I won’t.

So my husband graduated with his business degree and so I decided to treat his hard work and our family’s sacrifice with a trip to Maui.

It was a week of bliss to say the least.  While there I had the chance to do some commercial work and a few sessions. (Heck business write offs right?!)

When we go to Maui we stay in a beautiful private condo on the beach in Makena…..I can’t wait to get back there this October!
