Happy Earth Day!

Since I've been home I was able to meet my newest nephew, Rowan. You may remember his big brother Will from this blog post a couple years ago. Will is now a proud big brother and couldn't be more happy to have Rowan.

I brought my camera for a visit and had to get one shot.

Big brothers Jayce and Tyler giving baby sister Anna Page a kiss. 1984.

Big brother Will giving baby brother Rowan a "kiss"(more like scrunching his nose on Rowan's head) :) 2009.

Of course we had to get one shot of just Rowan. So precious!

Me and Jonathan by Dustin Izatt

Literally days before we left Utah we had our pictures taken by Dustin Izatt. He is one of my good photo friends and so fabulously talented at taking the most beautiful pictures. He let me tag along to some of his weddings when I was first starting out in wedding photography. He is one cool cat and super nice to everyone and is more than willing to help the photo newbies get a good start at their careers. Due to weather we had to schedule our shoot in the middle of the day which equals poor lighting. Despite the bad lighting Dustin was able to rock the shoot and we are thrilled with our pictures. This proves that a really good photographer can work in any lighting condition and give you wonderful results.

I had Valerie from Archetype Beauty do my hair and makeup for the pictures. Valerie is the SWEETEST person and it was wonderful to get to know her and talk with her while I was getting all glamed up. I loved how everything turned out and I felt so pretty! Thank you Valerie!

It was important to me to get a view of the city in a picture.

And the mountains of course!

My eyes are so dang sensitive to the sun and the lighting we were working with wasn't the greatest for eyes either. At some point Dustin suggested we take some pictures with my shades. I thought I would look like a bug with the kind of shades I wear but I think this picture turned out cute!

When we lived in Salt Lake we would take our dogs to an off leash trail at Memory Grove park. We always came across this rock that looked like a foot. Sometimes this rock would have toes and sometimes it wouldn't. I'm glad we have a picture of it!

The trail

One of my favorites!

By one of my favorite trees at Memory Grove.

Downtown Salt Lake. I wore this dress on our first anniversary and I was so happy to fit in it again! I remember trying it on a couple years ago and it wouldn't zip up.

I love our shoes!

I love sushi and this was one of our favorite places to get it.

Ha ha. No ride for you :) I'm not sure why I thought it was a good idea to ride a bicycle in a DRESS but oh well. I didn't feel like changing into my jeans again.

Thanks again Dustin! We will treasure these photos forever!

Heather and Rohin

I was so excited to do my first shoot after moving to Wisconsin! We met Heather and Rohin in Fond du Lac(my hometown) for their engagements. I'm so glad they decided to come down to Fond du Lac from Oshkosh for their shoot because we had lots of fun getting the know them. We found out that Rohin proposed to Heather at Central Park in New York City! How romantic! We hit some downtown area's and then went to Lakeside Park for some beautiful sun shiny photos. I'm so happy with how they turned out.

Heather and Rohin are tying the knot next month in Kohler and I cannot wait for the big day!

Go to Gillies! :)

Sorry Utah, your custard can't compare.

Sarah and Ross wedding

We made it to Wisconsin and we have just started to settle in. I have so much work to do but wanted to put Ross and Sarah's wedding on the blog quickly. I know Ross and Sarah have been waiting patiently to see some favorites :)

Sarah and Ross held their wedding and reception at The Victorian in Layton, Utah. The Victorian has so many beautiful details in the mansion. I could have spent another hour just taking shots of all the pretty things inside. The weather was sunny and gorgeous outside for their portraits. I loved the bright snowy mountains in the background of some of them. I miss the mountains already!

It was a pleasure working with Sarah and Ross on my last wedding in Utah!
