Abby + Field of Daffodils| Utah Senior Portraits

I can’t even handle this image. A field of daffodils. A striped jumper. Perfection.

After we were done playing in the daffodils, we caught some images with a more urban feel to them. The sun was setting behind the mountains, giving us the perfect backlight.

Spring Blossoms + Abby, Skyline High School | Utah Senior Portraits

Blossom season is almost here! I have some openings and am dying to photograph you in. This was Abby, a Skyline High School graduate. We visited three locations during her session last spring, the first being this adorable home with a huge tree full of pink blossoms and a perfect white picket fence and porch.

Our second stop was this blossom lined pathway straight from heaven. And the second we pulled up, it started pouring rain. Abby didn’t seem to mind, in fact she embraced it. So armed with a clear umbrella and two assistants trying to cover my camera with reflectors we made some pretty pictures.

Window Light Workshop and Staying Inspired | Utah Senior Portraits

Window Light Workshop and Staying Inspired | Utah Senior Portraits

Several weeks ago, I posted about the importance of being inspired by artists outside of your genre. You can see that post here. In a morning workshop sponsored by Pictureline and led by local wedding photographer, Camilla Binks, I was able to photograph this gorgeous model in a downtown studio experimenting with the light provided by the studio windows.

Rising Star Riding Academy | Utah Photographer

Rising Star Riding Academy | Utah Photographer

My daughter has been taking horseback riding lessons since she was in Kindergarten. She is a natural and loves everything about it – the horses, the barn cats, the hard work, the fast speeds, the jumping, and especially her trainer.

This is her trainer, Jenn. She is a dream come true and as a mother, I am so grateful to have her in my daughter’s life. Not only is she a skilled and accomplished rider, she’s an amazing trainer who teaches with love, patience, and passion. Watching her work with my daughter often brings me to tears.

As a parent, I am always on the lookout for those special teachers and leaders who fill the gaps of the inadequacies I possess. Jenn is one of those special people in our village who help fill those gaps. She’s teaching so much more than just how to ride a horse. I will forever be grateful to the life lessons my daughter learns out in the arena with Jenn.
