Jessica and Brad had the adorable S’more engagement session located HERE. They did not come any less ready to rock their shoot for their bridals. I LOVE LOVE LOVE her dress, Its like the newer version of mine 9 years ago, and I LOVE it! The flowy bottom, the little detail in the belt, it was gorgeous. Jessica and Brad are completely in love. He was so nervous for the first look, and when he saw her his eyes just LIT up and at that moment she was the most beautiful girl in the world.
Jeannette is a gorgeous senior inside and out, she made the session so easy because she has a very relaxed personality and was very go with the flow, even when I tell her to do weird crazy things for a shot, she never once gave me that, what do you want me to do look? She trusted me and because of that we got some great shots. She just graduated in 2014 and is attending the University of Pennsylvania this fall. I wish her luck on all her future adventures!
I am so excited to be part of Beauty Revived for High School Senior Girls. Beauty Revived is a nation search for women who are truly beautiful inside and out. This times its all about Seniors! I want YOU to help me find a Senior girl in Utah who lets her amazing light shine. Someone who has been through trials in life that only make her better because of it. People may know or not know about her struggles because she doesn’t let them pull her down but only allows them to shape who she is despite them. Who looks fear in the eye and stands up for what she believes in. I know they are out there but I need YOUR help to find them.
I love working with seniors, their energy and joy for life is so always full of fun and laughter. Belting songs and dance moves in the car with their friends, late weekend night, the stress of homework as you prepare for college. Getting that first kiss. Parents waiting up for you to make sure you safe back home again after those weekend dates that Dad isn’t too excited about. I love it all, but I am very excited to find a girl who has endured maybe a little more struggles than some others, who has seen some heartbreak that no one wants a little girl to deal with. Yet this girl, despite all of that, can somehow manage to still bring light to the world around her, who can brighten the room just by walking in. She treats other with kindness and serves them. That is a beautiful girl!
This girl will a senior session complete with Hair and Makeup, gift card to a local clothing store, and help on wardrobe styling as well. We are going to have a blast and just enjoy ourselves and hopefully it will be an experience like none other for her up to this point!
Nominations are only accepted till August 30th so get them in ASAP!
I attending a workshop with Abbey Kyhl, the photographer and owner of Abbey Kyhl Photography. Its called the Evolving Workshop, because as photographers we are always evolving and learning new ways to grow, run our business, and even our families for some of us.
I love to photograph people. The moment I did my first session I was in love. It fulfills my creative outlet. Yet there can be some challenges. I am a mother of 3 girls and sometimes It can be tricky to run a business well and still be a mom. The other problem I faced was wanting to specialize but I wasn’t sure how to get the clients I wanted. I went to this workshop with a firm purpose in mind, to figure out how to reach the clients I want, and to run an effective business. This workshop did that for me, and more, I am crazy excited to start giving my clients great connection and my family the time they deserve as well. I knew going in that this workshop was what I needed for my business but I didn’t expect to fell the personal uplift as well. I am a good mom, and I can be an even better one AND, run a successful business. I have so many exciting changes to make for me, my business, and my clients. If you are a photographer (no matter what subject you specialize in) this is the best workshop for your business. HANDS DOWN!
There are SO MANY workshops these days and it can be very overwhelming to beginning photographers. I have decided that I want to go to some event each year that will help me grow my business, so I am very picky about which ones I choose to attend. This year I wanted a workshop that centered around my business growth, not as much the artistic side. I asked a couple friends business questions and my friend Jacki just said Abbey Kyhl’s workshop is the bets thing to ever happen to my business! So I started looking into it, joined her AK crew on Facebook, and found out she was doing her next one 5 min from my house. It was fate.
Don’t let the pictures fool you, we spent most our days inside asking questions and writing notes, and gushing about all the things we can change or add to grow, and all the fun swag we got as well!
Now we can’t just do a workshop about photography and not shoot right? Abbey hooked up a beautiful session at Thanksgiving point, with some her her fantastic brides and vendors. She has the sweetest most beautiful couples, take a peek here.
Mechaella told me before her session that she feels awkward photographing without other people and would need help… ummmm yeah, I don’t think she had a problem! This girl is killer gorgeous and her handsome groom is in for a world of surprise today (their wedding day) when he finally gets to see just how amazing she looks. Their wedding day is going to be phenomenal!
