Kimberly and the Dress of Awesome

Artistic, Miscellaneous, Portraits, Proofs

Can I just say…this is one of the most fun shoots I’ve ever had the privilege of doing.  This girl is a positively brilliant seamstress, among other things, so if you need any custom sewing done let me know and I’ll put you in touch with her.

She’s also a total natural in front of the camera.

(She “blames” that on watching “too much” America’s Next Top Model…lol)

The rest of the images from Kimberly’s session can be found here.






Glamour Portrait Session: Samantha


My friend Samantha is such a strong & independent woman.  She’s vibrant, she’s smart, she’s funny, and I love her laugh.  She’s pretty busy with full-time school & work, so I am grateful to her for her time this past weekend.  After Sue Bryce’s most recent CreativeLIVE workshop, I knew that glamour photography was what I wanted to do with my career as a photographer, and I knew that I wanted Samantha to help me start out on that path.

We snapped this picture just before we went into the salon – with my cell phone since I’d forgotten to bring my real camera.


Our stylist Kiara did a wonderful job bringing out Samantha’s natural beauty.  Samantha said she felt like a million bucks – and doesn’t she just look it, too?




Thank you, Samantha, for trusting in me.

Senior Portrait Session: Tess


It was a beautiful, sunny day in Rexburg.  I got to spend time with a beautiful, sunny girl named Tess, and take her Senior portraits.  We shot them in The Gardens on the campus of BYU-Idaho, which gave us a chance to try a variety of poses against a variety of backgrounds.  But Tess looks great doing just about anything, as you can see.

We had a lot of fun. Tess thinks she doesn’t have a great smile, but she totally does.

You are drop dead gorgeous, girl!  I can’t wait to shoot you again!

Aubrey & Her Guitar


I’ve always wanted to learn how to play the guitar.

But shooting someone playing it, well, that’s almost the next best thing.

I don’t know if you can tell from the photos, but it was COLD…and while it looks romantic to have her hair blowing in the wind, it only made it COLDER!

Look at this gorgeous grin – she was definitely a trooper.

We found this little spot that was a bit more out of the wind, but her fingers and mine were quickly becoming uncomfortably stiff.

So we headed over to a little coffee shop I know, where I snapped this one – definitely one of my favorites from the entire session.

I think she looks like a goddess.

Thanks, Aubrey, for letting me practice my portrait skills with you!
