Wendy & Jeff Wedding: Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple

This photo shoot was fast & furious. I think we were outside for a total of a 1/2 hour including family shots. You can see as they came out of the temple and got a good taste of the wind that was blowing that day! Wow. I've never seen it so blustery. The wind pretty much directed our photoshoot, as there was places we just couldn't go because I think they would have blown away! I'm so happy with what we did get. Thanks you guys for being such troopers and braving the elements!

Check out these boots!

Spencer & Kimber Formals

This beautiful couple was married last Saturday, so I can now post these! It seems that when the groom comes along, the session is more appropriately called a "formal" session rather than "bridals". I did get some killer ones of Kimber all by herself though. Stay tuned for pictures from the wedding!

LOVE this one:

And I tried out some new lighting:

Baby Mae--Utah Newborn Photographer

My neighbor brought her cute 7-day old baby over for me to practice on yesterday. So much fun! Let's be honest though...newborns are hard. What baby wants to fall asleep naked, without their binkie, in a strange place, and then get poked and prodded and molded around into various shapes & poses? Seriously.

This little girl was no exception-- she just wanted to be wrapped up (but with her hands by her face), cuddled, and no way was she giving up that binkie. She went straight for her fists if we took it away. hahaha. However, I'm so happy with what we were able to get. Thanks so much for coming over. Your baby is a dream!

And... on that note. If anyone else is expecting SOON (i.e. next month or so--I'm not a very patient person) or has a baby under 10 days, let's get together. :) I need all the practice I can get before my little one shows up. Contact me and we can work something out.

Snow Fun!

Everytime it snows, my kids beg shamelessly to go out and play. Because I'm still feeling relatively sick, I usually put them off saying they need to wait until daddy gets home (sad, huh?). Anyway, Saturday was a beautiful day, so I sent the kids out while daddy was shoveling and then got bored by myself in the house and followed them out with the camera. So glad I did.

On a side note--everyone in the state raced for snowpants at the same time and I lost. :( I still need to find Rachel some, and Andrew's been wearing Rachel's old bright pink ones. Yes. He's very manly.

Save Me San Francisco: Vickers Family

During our trip to CA for Thanksgiving, I had the opportunity to squeeze in a little work. Makes it easy to write off the trip as a business expense, so I totally didn't mind. :) This great family was vacationing in downtown San Francisco and wanted a family photo in the city while they were all together for the holidays. Due to both our schedules (Curren Turkey Day was officially on Friday), we ended up shooting on Thanksgiving Day and I'm glad we did as it was a beautiful day!

Yes. They are that gorgeous. :)

The youngest, and a bit of ham for the camera. He was fun!

** "Save me San Francisco" is the title track to Train's new album (and also one of my new favorite songs). Check it out. Seriously. :)

Kelli & Robbie: Mt. Timpanogas Temple Wedding

Kelli & Robbie were married on a beautiful fall day in October. I loved working with their families and spending the day with them. It was perfect! These have been a long time coming, and they've been so patient! Enjoy!

A few plays with the fisheye lens:

And some from the reception:
