Obrays – Tiniest Of Previews

Obrays – Tiniest Of Previews

I was so excited that my sister came to visit yesterday, and she even let me take her family pictures. Just one for now, to show off my gorgeous niece and nephew. More from their fun session later.

Breathtaking

Breathtaking

This is part of the beautiful view I get from my front door. My neighbor across the street has the most breathtaking Wisteria that I calmly stare at all through the spring through our front window / door.

Opposites

Opposites

Testing out some new lights and backdrop. My sweet little boy was all about helping me out – couldn’t wait to see the finished product. While my daughter, well….she’s a feisty one. Kinda like her mommy. 😉

These ones just melt my heart.

Jake Garn Workshop Take One

Jake Garn Workshop Take One

Get ready for a longer-than-usual post.

Seriously. I took SOOOOOOO many pictures.

This workshop was so much fun. I showed up late (not remembering that Layton was 45 minutes away, not 20) and slid into a seat in the back row. I hate being late. Plus I was a tad bit nervous.

This was my first workshop, and there were some pretty big names there, as far as photographers in Utah go. It was super exciting to meet and see in action Jake Garn (of course) and Ryan Muirhead (Jake’s right-hand man).

And what incredible models!!! Really, I can’t take any credit at all for these images. These girls were so amazing, and the workshop was run so smoothly, that all I had to do was dial in my camera, attach my pocket wizard, and hit the button.

The stylists were out of control. Seriously. These people are amazing.
Makeup: Paula Dahlberg
Hair: Steven Robertson
Wardrobe: Michelle Boucher

Here are a few of my favorite images, and there are many, many more that I just haven’t had time to edit.

What a freaking blast.

I mean, come on! Samantha Law, you are breathtaking!

Oh yeah, you saw that right. She was pulling out the scorpion and other crazy moves, holding them for 15-20 minutes while we shot. The girl rocks.

Tanner – Olympus High School Senior

Tanner – Olympus High School Senior

Tanner was the first person to welcome us to our new street when we moved into our house. He knocked on the door, said his welcomes and offered up his Mom’s services should we need anything. I remember it like it was yesterday – I was stricken. He was this adorable 7-year old, who was clearly not intimidated by anyone, spoke like he was 10 years older than he really was, and just completely charming. Now he’s all grown up – graduating from Olympus High and headed off to follow his dreams of dental school.

Tanner is all smiles, all the time. It took a lot of concentration to look serious.

Blown Away

Blown Away

My baby girl turned 3 today. Sweet and spunky, this girl lights up our life. I wanted to get some pictures out in the blossoms before they all go away. We are expecting ANOTHER snow storm tomorrow and that means bye-bye blossoms. 🙁 So, even though it was crazy-windy, we snagged a few shots of her. Man, if only the wind wasn’t blowing at 100 miles/hour, these could have been amazing. But they work.

Yes, I realize this is a crotch shot, but it just screams Joclyn’s little personality. She loves animals – especially if there is a mommy/baby set.

Passive House

Passive House

Congratulations to Passive House for your write up in USA Today! This house is AMAZING. Not only for it’s passive attributes, but the crisp design and layout. Joe & Rebecca have done a fantastic job. You can check out the USA Today write up HERE.

Here are some of my favorites shots of the house. I love the exterior. The horizontal wooden siding on the garage is beautiful.

These two are master chefs – I’m not kidding – they are amazing cooks, so this kitchen is the perfect place for them to whip up dinners and key lime pies for their friends…shall we say every other Friday night?

I love the airiness (totally a word) of the entire home. Bright windows and white walls make everything seem so open and clean.

I mean, really?!? I would never get out of this bathtub. EVER.

The coolest stairway EVER. It takes a little getting use to if you’re rushing up or down the stairs, but amazing.

Mazza – Commercial Shoot

Mazza – Commercial Shoot

LOVE the feel of Mazza. It is beautiful and warm, yet clean and crisp. I shot Mazza with Sawaya Consulting, who is always amazing to work with, for some upcoming Ads. We even roped in a previous face. The Mazza staff was amazing to work with, too. They are a real class act in there.

Don’t you just want to snuggle in and have a long conversation with a friend you haven’t seen in a while?!

I loved the simple table decor and floral arrangements.

I hear the food is amazing as well. Being a vegetarian, I opted out of the dishes ordered for the shot. 🙂
