Monkeyshines and Shenanigans in the canyon (Utah Family Photography)








I have been wanting to photograph this canyon in autumn for a couple years now. We had a date reserved on the first weekend of October, and as you all know, it snowed. Great. Well, we decided to wait until the snow melted and try again, but by then the area I wanted to photograph had lost all it leaves. And I mean ALL of them. As we were driving to the location, I kept looking at all the bare gray aspens thinking, "this is going to be a disaster!" Fortunately, my sis had done her homework and found the only accessible spot with any leaves left, and it turned out to be even better than I had hoped. Phew! PS - that cute little denim jumper that miss *S* is sporting is an heirloom from her daddy. She looks way cuter in it than he did - Sorry A, but it's true!

Big Wins at SWPPA district competition

I just got a pretty nifty little package in the mail with some awards from the District print competition in Texas, hosted by the Southwest Professional Photographer's Association. I won two judges choice ribbons and had the highest scoring print case from Utah, for which I got a really lovely wooden plaque. The coolest thing that happened to me from this competition was that I received my first perfect score - 100 - for my image "The Bennett Sisters." These are my images I entered this year:


"The Bennett Sisters"


"Dumbledore's Army"


"The Secret of Life"


"I'll take mine on the rocks."

Fun in the Salt (Utah Family Photography)






This session is about six months in the making. We were almost thwarted by soggy salt, but with the good attitudes and flexibility of this amazing family, we were able to pull it off. I absolutely fell in love with this bunch. Everyone was so easy-going, and fun! I still feel like this was the totally right location for your portraits: clean, simple and gorgeous!

St George Portrait Dates (St George Professional Photography)

I will be in St George, UT on these dates: Friday November 11-Sunday November 13. I have four portrait sessions available for this weekend. The sessions will be $295, with $150 of that a portrait credit to spend on printed portraits. Prints from these sessions will be ready for Christmas if ordered by December 10. I'm really hoping to get some of that awesome red rock as backdrop, but I will do any location you want in the St. George area. These are the available session times:

Friday Evening (around 3:30 as Daylight Savings will make the sunset around 5:00-5:30)
Saturday Morning (early and cold, I know, but the best light will be right before sunrise. We can do a little later morning with the right location, as well.)
Saturday Evening (again around 3:30) **UPDATE: THIS SESSION IS ALREADY BOOKED**
Sunday Morning (same deal as Saturday morning.)

In case the weather is really bad, we can be flexible and try to work around it, but there is a small chance we'll have to cancel. Though I've always been in love with the way snow looks on red rocks....we will play it by ear. Call immediately to book your session: (801) 556-1661.
