Oh my word!  Has it really been this long?  I promise I have not neglected the blog on purpose.  Okay, well maybe I did.  BUT, it wasn’t because I wanted to.  It was kind of because I needed to!  It got crazy busy and I made it a goal to make time for my family amid all the chaos!  And…it worked.  I have enjoyed it slowing down.  And…I am excited to catch up the good ol’ blog!  Without anymore blabbering!  Here is the beautiful Melissa and her Groom!  


I would like to thank everyone who has participated in this giveaway!  Especially the AWESOME and AMAZING companies who have helped make this giveaway possible!  Thank you, thank you!  Remember that EVERYONE who entered will receive a 15% discount on my photo session packages for any session scheduled before Nov. 30th!  That discount makes the packages $148.75 or $85.  So BOOK NOW!!!   Okay, let’s get down to the FUN STUFF!  The winner chosen by RANDOM.ORG waaaaaaaaasssss…………………………..DRUM ROLL…………………………….





Jessie, email me at  to claim your AWESOME prizes!!!  YEA!!!!!!



GOOD MORNING everyone!  I am so excited to be announcing this SUPER FUN GIVEAWAY!!!  I have recently partnered up with The Dating Divas and decided a GIVEAWAY was a must in order to kick of my celebration of joining them!  (If you aren’t already a fan of them on Facebook yet, I suggest that you become one!  They have the BEST ideas to keep your date life fun and exciting and CHEAP, even after the kiddos come along!  Seriously…check out their stuff.  You WILL NOT be disappointed!)

Now, let’s get onto the GIVEAWAY!!!

I understand how crazy life can get, especially in the fall.  You have work and school and kids and it’s almost Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then CHRISTMAS!   You have every intention of getting family photos done.  But, for one reason or another it may not happen and before you know it… Christmas is here and you don’t have a photo to put with your Christmas cards (or on your walls), so you just skip it.  Or send out a letter instead.  So, to help you out this year, I am doing a ‘TIS THE SEASON GIVEAWAY’!

I have partnered with some awesome companies to make this giveaway perfect!  I will be giving away a FREE  FAMILY SESSION, a 16×20 print, and 30-40 edited photos with the print authorization!


But, that’s not it!  CK Designs  will be giving away a 16×20 whimsical frame to put your beautiful print in!  Their frames are to DIE for!


AND…there’s more!  The Modern Polkadot is letting you pick a Christmas card design from her collection to send out!  You will also receive 25 printed and they even come with envelopes!!


And, since I know it can be hard to buy accessories for everyone, we have Owliehoot Couture and Glitz by Lyndi to help you out!  Owliehoot Couture will be making you up to five, yes FIVE, adorable headbands to jazz up your little girls’ hair (if you have girls), and your own (assuming that Mom is reading this J)!


And, we all know that every woman loves jewelry, so we have that covered too!  Glitz by Lyndi is donating the TWO beautiful hand-made necklaces and earring sets in the photo below!



That is a total of over $495!!!  Let’s get everyone started!  The details on how to enter are below!

Taylor Senior Portraits {Manti Utah Senior Photographer}

A few years ago, I was lucky enough to do a very beautiful senior girl!  Her mom told me that she would contact me when her son was a senior….well….that time came.  And of course he fit in with the rest of his family when it comes to the “looks” department!  He is handsome, talented, and was very easy going and comfortable in front of the camera (which can be hard to come by with the male gender) ;0).  He is also my Manti Senior Rep.  If you would like to be a Senior Rep (incentives are provided), shoot me an email!

Karen Soper - I love every picture! Thank you for sharing your talent with us.

Jaimee & Marcus Wedding {Cedar City Utah Wedding Photographer}

Hi friends!  It has been awhile!  Fall is definitely coming in full force, and so the poor blog falls to the wayside!  But, I HAD to show you this beautiful country wedding!  The details were so beautiful and fit the couple so well!  The amazing thing….the BRIDE did pretty much all the decorations herself!  I know, it’s just not fair.  Some people are just too talented!  It looks like it came straight out of Pinterest!  With that being said, get those pinterest clickers ready and start clicking away!   Congrats to Jaimee and Marcus!  A beautiful and loving couple!  Enjoy!
