I know some of you are waiting. I have about 6 photo shoots to edit & post. I have a thing about doing my best. And, well it goes a bit too far with photography. I have a tremendous amount to learn and I am quite frankly impatient with my learning curve. 
I know what I want to do- but can't quite get there. Yet.
It feels too slow. Too frustrating, and oh so limited. 
But sometimes, my camera and my brain work together and "poof" Wish Granted. 
My niece Emmy is round and robust. She really prefers to be held at all times. She would much rather be snuggled in your arms with her head against your chest. She chews, and chews her hands. Oh, and she drools. For most of her mother's pregnancy we prayed more than usual. And then she was born and we prayed a whole lot more. And after more than a few miracles granted we prayed again, to say "thank you".
She is positively perfect. That is what was going through my head when I did her photo shoot. Perfect. Perfect eyes. Perfect nose,hands and feet. Perfect little tummy. Perfect little heart. I wanted to capture every nuance of her perfect little body. Wish granted. I have an entire post dedicated to her and her two older siblings, and the afternoon we spent together. 
For now, here is a Glimpse.

Holyoak Sneak Peek

Sneak Peek- Holyoak Photo Shoot
I have been away for a couple of months, but not from photography. Just from blogging about photography. My priorities are still straight. I have 5 photo shoots to edit and 3 scheduled in the next 10 days. In the meantime, here is a few photos to whet your appetite. Consider these an appetizer. You are going to love the main dish and somehow find room for dessert. Bon Appetite!!

Loved this photo shoot. I am discovering something about myself. I really, really like photographing children. And something else. There seems to always be at least one child in every family who sizes me up and then challenges me to take their picture. Guess what? These usually turn out to be my favorites.  He or she soon discovers that I am not going to pose or force anyone to smile. I follow them around while they play and pretty soon we have an understanding. Sometimes, I think we even become friends. Really.So here's to new friends young and old. 
 Thanks Katie & Bud for lending me your charming children.
If you'd like to see if we can become friends at a photo shoot, give me a call @ (801) 492-4775 or use the link on the tab "Contact Me"

Mother's Day Special

Don't miss this opportunity to give Mom something she always loves- YOU,.. in pictures. Now through May 5th book a one hour photo shoot of you and up to six people she loves all for $75- which includes 25 edited photos and the best of the rest all on a disc for you to keep and print and wrap-up for Mom. Or, if you'd rather have her do the color coordinating,location choosing, nose wiping and general overall gathering of the tribe then you can offer her a gift certificate and get the same great package at the same great price. And I'll let her book the date.

I am also offering a Mini-shoot which includes 30 minutes of photography and 15 edited images along with the disc. A great buy for $50

Here is a sampling of what I can do when I come to you. These were all taken in peoples homes.

Snap Decision

I'm learning when it comes to photography, caution is not an attribute. Keeping my shutter pressed and my eyes peeled is essential to a successful shoot. For me a photo- shoot is very organic. I don't like to force my subjects to say "cheese", or stand in awkward positions or really anything that in essence stops them from being themselves for the benefit of the camera. A week ago I did a shoot with a couple of active boys. At one point, big brother knocked little brother down on purpose. He got up wet with snow and tears and was clearly heartbroken. Then big sister stepped in to comfort and console and big brother wrapped his arms around both of them. Snap. It was magic. And it turned out to be one of the best shots in the group. Make your own snap decisions and photograph things and people in a way that is outside of your comfort zone. You'll be glad you did.
