WELCOME to my blog and my photographic journey, where my photography style is dictated by my environment. I am a full time executive member of my household. That's right, I care, feed, instruct, inspire, maintain, a group of amazing individuals and the space they live in. These individuals are my children and husband, that place is my home. Most of the time I photograph where we are together, what we are doing together and most importantly their beautiful expressions. Sometimes I have the wonderful opportunity to photograph another family or event. I post my journey here.

My photographic philosophy:
I celebrate the unique differences in each person, event and place. I relish in capturing life as it happens naturally. I anticipate it! I love creating an emotional image, one that will be cherished. I seek for beauty in the simplest most unexpected places. I enjoy carrying my camera where I go, making an interpretation of that moment and archiving it for good. Creating a beautiful, stunning final print and giving lasting memories of people loved. These things put a smile on my face.

Family Photos in Southern Utah: The Wells Family Slideshow

I love this family. Kyle Wells was a good friend through highschool. I think it is always a blessing to get to reunite with people you knew in highschool and then see them years later; mature, happily married to someone lovely and with several, beautiful children. This was the case with Kyle.
These kids had me laughing to myself while I worked on these photos all week as I remembered the little things they said to me. While I was posing them for the first shot of the sitting, I told Kyle and JoEllen to get close so it "looks like you like eachother." The kids looked up at me and said dramatically. "OH! They LIKE each-other alright!"What a great and honest exclamation!
Another one of my ULTIMATE laughs of the night came when we were finished with the sitting and I turned to the kids after they were sitting in their car and said  "I had such a fun time with you! Thank you!" Immediately after, Kyle walked up to me and paid me the photo fee, when from the background his daughter yells, "We don't have to pay her! She had FUN!" It was the icing on top of the cake. I laughed all the way home, I couldn't wait to tell my husband.
So yes, it was wonderful photographing and sharing time with the Wells. They are a genuine, beautiful family. Thank you Kyle and JoEllen for hiring me, I truly appreciate it.

I hope you enjoy this little slideshow. After the slideshow, the gallery of images will appear and you can click on the image to scroll through and view each photo.
