Utah Children Photographer {Something Whimsical}

I adore my Miss Elle.  She just started the 6th grade today; and let me tell you what…I am super sad.  I should not have a sixth grader…but alas I do.

So the other day I needed to get out and shoot something (that sounds so violent) so I asked…no I didn’t ask, I told my Elle we were going to do a photoshoot.  It was super fast and super impromptu.  We drove over to some property my dad owns here in Salt lake County and did a little shoot.  She was such a trooper.  Where we are at in Salt Lake, is super buggy so she was swatting bugs left and right.   I have so many more images I want to share, but I just needed to post a few while I was still adoring them.

I think one of these is going to be made into a beautiful custom canvas and hung on her wall in her room.  Nothing I love more when it comes to prints than beautiful canvas’ and these will be stunning!

So enjoy!

Sophie Choate - May I ask where you got that dress and headband from? They are absolutely stunning!!

Oh Paris…..my love! {Utah Photographer in Paris…being a Parisian Photographer}

Paris was freaking AMAZING! No lie!  The workshop that we taught in Paris was freaking AMAZING!  I can’t imagine anything better than teaching Photographers, what I love in one of the most magical places in the entire world.  We traveled from Salt Lake City, to Paris France in May.  We arrived 5 days before our workshop was to begin and we were able to do a little scouting for locations for our workshop and taking advantage of all the lovely things Paris has to offer.


We were so blessed with Shabby Apple Clothing to send us with some gorgeous clothing to photograph while we meandered in Paris.   On our first full day in Paris we had breakfast at a little cafe just under our apartment then we visited the Louvre, Notre Dame and walked a bazillions of miles…or so it seemed.  Once we finally figured out how to use the metro our lives changed…….. Our cute little Paris Apartment was right off one of the metro lines and it was so easy to get in and out of the city.  We pursued flower markets and found the worlds most delish french macarons I can’t wait to get back…….and spend more time exploring the Parisian lifestyle.


Oh Paris….I left part of my heart with you….I’ll be back!

Utah Children Photographer {Wildflowers and Mountains}

Utah summers are simply beautiful…although in the city they can be really hot.  But the good thing about living in the Salt Lake City Valley is that it’s not a far drive to go up to the mountains…for a little clean air and cooler temperatures.  So one day this summer I took my girls for a drive to find some new locations for photoshoots.  Being that I had my camera on hand (of course I did) (and if I’m really honest……I made my girls wear cute outfits that day…incase I happened to need them for models) I pulled over on a mountain road and took some snazzy and beautiful shots of my two littles!

I have so many images to share with you; but I had to blog a few of them.  Because let’s be honest…they are just so beautiful (my girls……that is…and my photography isn’t that shabby either ….wink)


Utah Fashion Photographer and Shabby Apple {With CarlieStylez}

Miss Carlie was such a doll to photograph.  She came down from Idaho to Salt Lake City, to be part of the Shabby Apple and CarlieStylez collaboration on a couple of awesome swimsuits.  I photographed two swimsuits this day; however one has yet to be released…so we are going to hang tight on those images.

Carlie, looked like a Baywatch babe in her gorgeous red, but modest swimsuit! And it was smoking hot in Salt Lake City, the day of this photoshoot.  Not to mention we were on the rooftop of a downtown apartment building. With the hot Utah, desert sun beaming down on us, I thought we might just melt…or lose 15 pounds in sweat!  But alas, we did not.

Utah Fashion Photographer and Shabby Apple {with Jackie Welling}

Imagine driving down the road and looking to your left and seeing a hot babe in a swimsuit and a short 4’11 girl (that would be me) taking pictures in some strange ally…yeah that’s what we looked like.

Some local Salt Lake City businesses were in for a treat when we were shooting swimsuits in a obscure ally.  But heck it was fun.  And not to mention that the lovely Jackie is a freaking babe! BABE! Look at that gorgeous hair.  Anyway enough about the hair, and on to the swimsuits!  So Shabby Apple teamed up with a handful of bloggers, life stylists and you tubers to create a line of swimsuits.  I FREAKING LOOOOOOVE Jackie’s Design.  The one shoulder is gorgeous.  And not to mention it’s fabulously modest!

It has been fun working with Shabby Apple and I feel so in awe of the massively talented artists we have here in Utah.  Awesome designers, awesome creatives…just awesome!
