Suzzy & Sally

I decided for Christmas this year to hand make a special gift for my girls. I bought THIS BOOK in hopes to make toddler quilts out of their baby clothes and found these adorable cats inside the book. I don't know much about sewing so this book came in handy because it has step by step guides with pictures. I had to hide the fact that I was making these creatures, so I sewed at anybodys house that I knew had a sewing machine and because I didn't have one. On Christmas morning it was the first gift that Ella chose to play with... it took Claire a little longer. They now sleep with their friends every night, it's really quite sweet. AND the best part is, I got a sewing machine from Mark for my Christmas gift. Soooo, now I want to start using it, but need some quick and easy projects to break the machine in along with myself. Any ideas or links to easy projects would beneficial to me. Please leave a comment to help a sista out... Thanks!

Drayer Sisters

Oh I had such a good time shooting these beauties. Ruby (the older one) had such personality, she had me cracking up the entire shoot, you would have never guessed she was about to turn eight... more like 30. And little sweet Sophie had such a soft demeanor, I was trying my darndest to get her to laugh, acting like a complete fool... what I do best.

one of my all time favorite childrens portrait!

Aaron and Jennifer Wedding

ARE YOU EVEN KIDDING ME? Is what went through my head when I looked out the window one hour before I shot Aaron and Jennifers wedding. Winter had landed. I cannot put into words how windy and cold it was on December 19th at 2:00 p.m. at the Timpanogos temple. It was so cold and windy the temple president granted us permission to shoot their group shots inside the temple. -K- does anyone know how strict the temple workers are at the Timp temple? You even hold your camera while walking through the space between the two front sliding doors, and they're breathing down your neck, watching your every move like some how your going to miraculously have a camera that can shoot through walls to capture the sacred going-ons. So when they said we could shoot inside the foyer area, I nearly fainted.
It was so cold and windy that when we did their couple shots, we basically couldn't do them. We couldn't relax enough to even breathe right. It honestly felt like we were in the Nordic tundra. Luckily I had two VERY awesome clients who held on like champs to the end without one complaint, to produce some fab photos. So thanks Aaron and Jennifer, you two rock!

Look at how beautiful and happy she looks despite the circumstances?
