A great yard makes taking pictures easy!

These are some of my favorite photography subjects. They have supported my business from the very beginning. The best compliment any photographer can get is either repeat business or a referral. This is a secret location photographed only by me. It really is a private backyard. It's a work of art all by itself without adding subjects to be photographed. Thanks Anita and Keith, oops! now it may not be as secret as I thought!

We've survived another summer! Yeah!

Summer seems to last just long enough to want to do this to your children. It's not that you don't love them, it's just that choking them seems so much more fun. I always tease my children that I run naked through the house on the first day of school because I can. It's the same theory of... "if a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" That's right I'm not confessing just how naked I may or may not be on the first day of school. Good-luck to all you school going children and all you nearly stripped down moms at home enjoying the first day of the new school year.

Finally, a "new" business card.

I finally created a new business card. It highlights some of my favorite photo shoots. Although, I've been known to create a great landscape, my first love is "shooting" people. I plan to update my blog header soon as well to make it easier for the whole 4 people that follow my blog to contact me. Until then, give someone you love a hug. And remember they may not "know" that that you love them, so tell them, then tell them again.

Pilates, reformers, cadillac, powerplate...oh my!

Ready for a fitness challenge that promises to make you feel stronger, happier and more in tune with your body after each session? Then check out my friends at Pilates Body @2120 No. Washington Blvd. Morning and evening classes are available, just call or text Kristie @ 801-628-7382 for a session appt. Each trainer at Pilates Body prides herself in being tougher than the last. It was great fun having absolute control with the camera and making them hold a pose. I might have had them hold it a little longer than necessary because I could. (insert evil laugh here) It really is a great work out. Good health is NOT a luxury it's an absolute necessity.

When should you take senior pictures?

It's never too early to pose for your senior portrait. I encourage seniors to make an appointment in the fall. Spring is usually very wet and very busy and believe me by then you don't care if your picture gets taken as long as they let you graduate. If you like to snowboard or ski or some other winter sport, taking your pictures in the amazing "powder" of Utah is not a bad thing either.

All the way from Iowa....

It sounds really cool if I claim that Meagan came all the way from Iowa to have her pictures taken by me. It's sort of true, it's also true that Meagan is a freshman attending Utah State. I like my story better. Tell your mom that the pictures are going out in the mail and tell Nick that I'll post his senior pictures soon. Best of luck at Utah State.

I enjoyed very much "shooting" this family. They of course, were pleasant and cooperative, but most of my families are. The best part was they didn't expect me to be a mind reader. The mother had a pose or 2 in mind, and she asked for them. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I want you to take away the pictures that you have in mind, not just the ones that I might plan on doing. After all, it's your photo shoot, so do some homework before we meet, ask for what you want and I will try to make the shots happen.
