Sisters By Birth, Friends by Choice (Utah Child Photography)



I don't think you could get any sweeter than this. This portrait would make an awesome Christmas Card. I want to receive one with this image on it - maybe I'll make one up just for me...

Best of Show - Utah State Fair

I was so thrilled to end up with the Best of Show for Professional Photography in the Utah State Fair this year! I also received first place in the "botanical" catagory, and first place in the "architecture" catagory. Here's an article in the Salt Lake City Headlines Examiner that I am also very exciting to be featured it. Check it out - it's my fifteen minutes!

Best Dimples Ever (Utah Baptism Portrait)





I love this gal's dimples!!! I love the sweet innocence of baptism portraits. I can't wait to do E's Senior portraits... her bridal portraits... her newborn babies' portraits.... I love what I do.

Proud Mama

I just have to post a quick brag about my amazing kids. We are working on a Family Boy Scout patch, and for this, the kids and I all entered the Utah State Fair. My artistic boy entered a painting of Optimus Prime and Megatron. Alas, the judges didn't fully appreciate my son's talent, and he didn't get a ribbon, but he was such a good sport about it, and still very proud of his painting. My appologies! I forgot to take his photo with his exhibit.

My daughter entered photography with some of the images she took on our cruise. She won First Place!


As exciting as that was, it was even MORE exciting when she found she'd won First Place... again! Blue Ribbons on two of her three prints entered. That's my girl!


What better way to celebrate than with cotton-candy beards? My kids are so awesome.

More Cycling Fun (Utah Bike Photography)







Man, I love my job. This is a continuation of the commercial work I'm doing for IDS. I got to photograph a race last week. It was last minute (we decided around 3:00 that I needed to shoot that day at 6:00.) and I had to throw my kids onto my poor friend who'd already had a rough day, and I had to sandwich the race in between another session, and a meeting - but it was SO worth the effort to get there! I had a great time, and was able to just relax and focus on creating art. Our goal with this session was to get a lot of movement, a sense of motion. So even though many of the photographs aren't crystal sharp like I'm used to creating, they are still very vibrant and very effective, i.m.h.o. Way too much fun!

Dance is Love (Utah Dance Photography)



Kris + Camera + Ballerina = JOY! :-)




*SIGH* I long to photograph more dancers...

Let me show you my moves (Utah Child Photography)



Just a few more from that amazing session last week. I love how these girls' mom went all out in the outfit department. When we were planning her portrait session, we talked about achieving two very different looks in the same session. We went very formal and classical for the first half, and modern, hip and casual outside for the second half. Yes, we did lose baby to bedtime crankies, but overall, I feel like this was an fantastic way to do a session. I totally vote you consider the Highlights Album to showcase all these great images of your girls!


Heaven on Earth (Utah Child Photography)


A, my dearest cousin, I think I'm going to have to do two posts for this session. We got so much variety! Your girls are literally angels, and I think this first image of them looks like they just plopped down out of heaven. Thanks so much for this great evening. It was all worth it just to see you again! Here's a shout out to all Kitchen cousins!! I love you!

Good Luck, Elder T! (Utah Missionary Portraits)

I just wanted to post a few quick images for T & his Mom, of his Missionary Portraits. This lucky guy gets to serve two years in Africa! How cool is that. Anyway, the rest of your previews should be ready in a couple days. I'll let you know when they are ready.
