What...its art.

This weekend while we were in Utah for Christmas, I was given a challenge...make Jack Daniel's art in the snow....this is the outcome.

Gorgeous Family to Shoot

Taking 3 kids to 3 different locations isn't easy. But they were troopers and we got a few good shots. Masyn almost fell down the hill more than once and the boys had to dodge broken glass...but we all came out in one piece. My sister has such a gorgeous family and I didn't even come close to doing them justice...so needless to say...more to come!

And I'm in Love

What do they call this...the point of no return? I am in love with photography, photoshop, and this beautiful baby girl. I just can't stop playing with these pictures to even pick favorites! Her eyes, her smile...I better stop before I go on and on. I love her...I loved taking her picture. Good thing she's my niece and I can do it whenever I want.

Not Just "Picture" Perfect Family

Between the mountain, the smiles, the scenery, and the faces, there was beauty all around. The Robinson Family loves the outdoors and everything just worked together perfectly. With real smiles and real love, I couldn't go wrong. This shoot challenged my ability to get so many people in one picture without taking away from each one of them. I also have a habit of only shooting faces, but full body shots were so fun! This family is such a blessing to me and mine...they are truly priceless. Hopefully these pictures do their beautiful family justice.

Fab Fam

Wow...what a fun shoot...I am learning more & more every day.

1-Real love makes pictures so much more beautiful
2-When there are kids, just bring candy
3-Don't try to take pictures with ducks in the background (they are way more interesting than my face)
4-Watch out for sneaky strollers
5-Just keep shooting, the next one may be the perfect shot
6-The perfect way to finish a photo shoot is with a round of sushi
Lesson learned.

The NOT Bride to Be

Although these pictures may excite some people...TIA IS NOT GETTING MARRIED! I have been wanting to practice by the railroad tracks and we thought we would put a twist on it, so we pulled out my wedding dress and had a blast. Travis was nice enough to drive us into places we never would have dared and we got some amazing shots. (Not too hard to do with such a gorgeous model!) Most of the time I have one particular thing I am shooting (usually a person). Well this time I had such an amazing view and really cool props to photograph that, although my instinct was to zoom in and leave them out, I had to play with everything that was around me. It was really good practice! And any time I get to hang out with my best friend I can't complain, even if she is super irritated at the way I direct her (still working on the people skills haha)!

Matt & Tabitha's Beautiful Babies

This photo shoot was such a blast! I guess that's what happens when you make it an excuse to get friends together to catch up. Gianna is gorgeous and a total ham. She was posing any way I asked her to...made my job too easy! And Luca is so handsome. Even though my kids had to go along for the ride, we made the best of it and the girls made a new best friend. All of my Photoshop practice in my class paid off. Matt & Tabitha, you're amazing, thanks for letting me practice on your kids!!
