Want to become a photographer? Some things you might want to know...

I get emails all the time. Clients saying “hey this looks easy… I’d like to do it too”. Or I get resumes from people asking if I am hiring an assistant or students. I get all kinds of great emails. I am very flattered and I blush that someone would want ME to mentor them and help them. I have talked over the years to so many and as much as I would love to keep answering a lot of emails I get, right now with having a business, and 4 very active children and raising a family I thought it may help by linking to a friend and fellow photographer in Atlanta, Ga. She answered many of the questions I get all the time about my line of work.
Truly I am so appreciative of everyone and I hope that by
linking to this Blog it will help you to get a great inside look into this business.

It's OFFICIAL! They're engaged!

I had the privilege of doing an engagement session for Johnny and Danielle. Johnny gave Danielle a promise ring a month ago but told her that the "big event" would happen on her birthday. Well, we scheduled their engagement session as soon as we could and it happened to fall before her birthday. So Johnny asked me to be a part of the surprise! The day of the session we received 8 inches of snow and it was still snowing but we decided to go for it. We did studio images and then I suggested that we head to Rexburg to do some shots in areas that have some sentimental meaning to them. Little did she know that this was all in the plan! :D We went to several locations along the way and eventually ended up at the swing that they did a lot of their courtship at. I took a few posed shots and then told them I thought it would be fun to take some images of him "acting" like he was proposing. I told them I had a box and could he just pretend with the box. Johnny totally played it up and got down on his knee. When the time came for him to ask he opened the box and there inside was the ring! Boy was she shocked and I got to capture it all on film! WooHoo! It was so fun and I had tears in my eyes too. I am such a sap! It was so fun to be apart of the fun! Congratulations you two!

Congatulations Johnny & Danielle!

Here is a sneak peek at some of your engagement images... Enjoy!

Meet Jasper- 3 months old

What a little cutie! I had the privilege of doing a 3 month session with Jasper. He is so serious. But soooo cute. It was a pleasure to do his session and I will be excited to watch him grow as we do his baby plan sessions.

Garbage bags + two brave souls = a lot of fun!

I love my sister. She is so creative. She is an art student at an art collage in Maryland and she definitely is artistic. I recently had the opportunity to go to Florida and while I was there I got to see her (it has been several years since we have seen each other). I thought it would be fun to go do a photo session with her and her boyfriend. She was more then willing if I did pictures of them in costume. The costume she wanted to make was made out of garbage bags. I thought they were pretty clever and unique. And her boyfriend is a great sport to dress in garbage bags and tights! :D We had a blast and I laughed a ton. What fun! We even had a couple of cops who kept circling the block probably wondering what we were up to. I am sure it was quite the sight for them to see!

The twins are 4 months!

Wow! Where does the time go? The twins who are on my baby plan are now 4 months old. They are so cute and getting so big! We had a lot of fun with them and had quite a few chuckles. Aren't they adorable?
