{The Starks}

Oh, these two are the sweetest little kids! We started out at the farm so Luke could show us his new boots; he's a real cowboy! Then we went back to Grandma & Grandpa's house so we could keep their sweet little Mille warm and snuggly for her little picture session. They both have beautiful eyes, and Luke has the cutest blonde curls! (Their mommy is Chelsi (Leavitt) Starks, just in case you don't recognize these cuties:)

{Laura & Eric Engagements}

These two are really a great couple. They have been dating for over a year, so it was easy to feel how much they cared about each other. It was such a nice day out, the blossoms were in full bloom too! We got some ice-cream, walked the streets of downtown SG, and made plans for their upcoming bridal/groomal session. We're going to be throwing in some vintage romance...I can't wait!!

{Anniversary Week}

It's been a fun and busy week! We celebrated our Anniversary by going to the Jazz game with my parents and lil bro, Berk. It was really fun! (Even though the Wizards weren't so great).

Friday I surprised Brade by taking him to Switzerland...or maybe just the Zermatt Resort in Midway, UT. It felt like we had left the country, and Brade said it seemed like the real one. (He went to Europe with his fam the summer we met). If you haven't been, it's well worth the nice drive through the canyon!

Saturday we headed to Park City, visited the outlets and then drove up to the Olympic park. There were even athletes training so we got to see a few runs on the skeleton track, and believe it or not, we saw one run by the Jamaican bobsled team! It was really cool, and they fly. We both couldn't believe how fast those skeleton riders get going

I really like Millsap's face in this image, checking out D-Will.

It was really bright out.

We shared this huge slice of cake at "Matty's" at the Zermatt.

Our rings. Brades could use a spit shine.

This USA guy was flying about 77 miles an hour. That's fast.

Brade went for a quick run down the mountain, he was flying too:)

{Kaeli & Doug Engagements}

I like the way that these two smile at eachother! Doug was a little un-excited about being in front of the camera, but I think he just might have had a little bit of fun by the end:) Kaeli is just a natural, so beautiful, and so fun to be around. Just a mighty fine pair, and I'm certainly counting down the days until their bridals in April, and their wedding in May. You'll have to wait until then to see all the fun details unravel... See you two soon:)

{Luck o' the Irish}

Luck (also called fortuity) is a chance happening, or that which happens beyond a person's control.

3 years ago today, Brade and I got married. I still feel like the luckist girl in the world to be married to him; to have shared in so many good and challenging experiences too.

He makes me laugh, he pushes me to be better, makes me feel pretty, and let's me kiss him whenever I want.

Yeah, I'd call it LUCK; I had no control when it came to falling in Love with Braydon, and to this day he still makes me crazy about him!

Happy Anniversary Brade. I L O V E Y O U.

These are a few images from the workshop that I went to last week, in North Carolina. We did 2 photo sessions while there. The first was "shipwrecked", and it was in an old Boat yard. The textures of the rusted out boats were awesome; it was JAWS playyard:) The second session was a night shoot in downtown Wilminton, NC. It was a beautiful night and it was very interesting to learn about night shooting:) I really liked it, and apparently it's getting to be quite popular for sessions too.

Overall, I learned some new things, and figured out a bunch that I will be working on. Part of becoming great is being humbled, and then working hard to improve upon our weaknesses right? :) It was a lot of fun- and it was great to finally meet Millie Holloman too. The woman is brilliant, amazing, hilarious, and taught us so much all day long.

Seriously though, pulling no sleep for 2 days was not smart, but it was so fun to be in NC. Beautiful place!!!

{I'm Back}

Hello Everyone!

It's been a crazy couple of days. We shot sessions all weekend in St. George, returned home on Sunday, and then I jumped on a few planes Sunday night and spent all day Monday with the brilliant Millie Holloman & her staff, in North Carolina, for her One to Ten Workshop... From 10 a.m. until well after midnight, it was A M A Z I N G! I will post more about what we did when my brain is back.

Although exhausted and not functioning properly yet:), I can't even start to explain the excitement that I feel right now. Things are going to be better in every aspect, in every way.

So, after not sleeping for a few days, after moving, and just barely getting our internet working (I love moving), please be patient for a few more days. I will be getting back to everyones emails and messages ASAP.

Thank you, Hugs to you all:)

{Alissa & Ryan Bridals}

Gorgeous Couple! For once the wind was our friend through this session. Most of the time it's frustrating with wind since it tends to move things, like hair, out of place when you don't want it to. But it worked it's magic with Alissa's chapel length veil and it was amazing.

Alissa had saved a picture, from when she was little, of the dress she wanted for her future wedding day. So when she walked into the dress store, she knew this one was "the one"; it was so beautiful! Her flowers were gorgeous, she actually did her own hair, and Ryan looked quite stunning himself, and was so helpful too! These two get married this Friday in St. George; it's going to be a beautiful day!

Flowers: Bloomers
Dress: Abella Bridal
