Baby R

When my friend had a sweet a little boy I was so excited to take pictures of him. He was so happy and content and just let me take pictures of him. He was just so lovable.

This family was so much fun. They are so happy and cute together. Again, it was freezing, but we still had a great time. We went up to the back of the Farm's property and went down to the river. We walked around and I soaked my feet (on accident) and then we watched the kids feed the horses and throw rocks in the pond.

First Session

This was the first session I've done since I moved out to New York. And it was so much fun. These little kids were so sweet and had so much fun together. Even though it was freezing out, these kids were troopers, and I even got some smiles out of them.

I know this is late in coming but I needed to post that I have moved. I am no longer exclusively serving the Salt Lake area, but now am serving Syracuse, New York. However, that doesn't mean that I won't ever be back in Utah. If you are wanting to still book a session with me, keep an eye on this blog to see when I will be back in town. I will most likely offer a day or two where you can schedule a session, first come first serve.

Please contact me if you have any questions, and thanks to all of you who have come to me to capture your special moments!

Normally when I finish a photo session I load the pictures onto my computer and don't look at them for a couple of days. I have to almost come down from the high of taking the pictures otherwise I'll spend way too much time away from my family all in one sitting.

But tonight I took pictures of a new friend and I was SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS PICTURE! I couldn't wait to pull it up and play around with it. Isn't it beautiful? Isn't she beautiful? I didn't do anything to her eyes; they are that naturally stunningly green.

I thought I'd try a few different effects on it too, so I put them all up for you to see. These are just a very few of what effects I can do for you pictures, if you only ask. They are from left to right, top to bottom:

Low Contrast, Rich Contrast
Vintage, Bleached

Great job at your sudden demand for modeling, Heather. You did fantastic, as you can see.

Chloe - Belatedly

We went out last week to finally take Chloe's Third birthday pictures. Considering that she is now three and a half, we're not too far behind. Unfortunately she got pretty sick that day and wasn't her usually smiley, crazy-energy, silly self. But I love serious faces, so I love all of these. And we did get a few smirks, at least.

Senior Ball

The color version of this first one is awesome, but I had to do the old fashioned black and white. I love when I get to do artistic stuff like this!!
