Happy Holidays

I've been naughty, no need to tell me, I already know. (A naughty blogger that is). The good news is apparently Santa is forgiving me because even though I've let my blog go over the last couple of months, I still got my present. Long story short I've been without a computer for the last six weeks, and I finally have one again!

Merry Christmas from my family to yours!!!


Little L

I have a confession to make. When I post on my blog 90% of the time I hold out my favorite pictures for updating my website. (Which I am planning on doing during the next month. I'm really excited about it.) But, I realize to my followers that might not be so cool. So here is a promise to try to kick that habit, and post more. That way I will hopefully be sharing some of my favorites until I do updates.

Here's to my first attempt to making good on my promise:


H & A

These two are perfect for each other and so funny to be with. I love funny people.


Stokoe Family

Is it just me or are other people feeling like the older we get, the faster time goes by!? It's now December, which means Christmas is just around the corner. Time to enjoy the cold weather, bundle up under blankets, watch some good movies, drink some hot chocolate, or my favorite hot apple cider, and watch the snow fall from inside our warm homes. :) (Your crazy if you actually go out in it! ha. I'm kidding, I like to play in the snow, I just don't like the running around in it... waiting for the car to heat up, errands, etc.)

Speaking of the cold and the snow, here is a little preview of a fun session I had with this family that I love up at Sundance the other day:



Meet one of the funniest guys, and the sweetest gals out there. I'm not sure I've met anyone kinder and more relaxed that this Mom right here. AND she is beautiful too! LUCKY. ;) Kyle, you are one lucky man if I say so myself. Thanks again you guys, I had a blast with you and your girls!



I will not be responding to email regularly this week as my computer will be in the shop. If you need to reach me, please do so by phone.
Happy Thanksgiving Week EVERYONE! I'll be back next week with plenty of pictures to share, announcement of an upcoming giveaway/contest, and some coming changes for 2010... can't believe I'm already saying that!


Publish Me Mine

Publish Me Mine is a new company that has created a simple way for all of us digital scrapbook fans to quickly and easily make beautiful scrapbooks. They will be launching their website soon, and for now have calendars available for 2010. I love the quality, as well as the design of these particular calendars. Check out their website, and their blog to get a closer look at all that they have to offer. Also see if you can spot a loved one & browse the designer bios to read a little bit about the two talented ladies behind Publish Me Mine.
Be sure to check back soon as they will be up and running anytime.


I had a nice surprise this morning when I saw Haley's Bridal Session featured over at Utah Bride Blog. I knew it was going to happen, I just didn't know when... so as the page was loading I kept thinking "Is it me? Is it me?" and sure enough, it was! Go check it out! I feel really lucky and blessed to be featured on this blog among so many reputable and incredibly talented photographers. Today is a milestone for my little company and I'm very excited about it! Thanks again to everyone for you love and support! Really, love you all!



I love shots like this. Being a parent and knowing how much love, time, energy, and did I say LOVE? is invested in these little ones of ours - pictures like these melt me.

Donaldson Family

This is the third time I have had the pleasure of photographing this family, and I love that they keep coming back. I get to build a relationship with them all and watch the little ones grow. Not to mention how down to earth they are and good looking. Liz, this ones for you:


Haley's Bridals

I love photographing anything to do with people in love: engagements, bridals, weddings, couples after years of being married with kids, you name it! I am a serious sucker.
I met Haley a few years ago and she was so sweet and nice, and then I didn't see her or talk to her until recently when I got a call telling me she is getting married and needs a photographer!! Needless to say I was really excited.
Beautiful Girl (inside & out I might add) = Beautiful Bride = Beautiful Pictures.
Here are a few of my favorites:

I am now booking Weddings for January and February.
