This little guy loves a soft blanket. Its so cute how he wants to carry it everywhere he goes. The cutest shot is when he's naked and carrying his blanket.

I know that I am so far behind from posting my photos a day. I do need to spend some time catching up but I just wanted to get this post out. I need to vent.

So I had a grooms mom hire me to get family shots of her sons wedding. Her last wedding she didn't get any photos nor did they care to get her 'in' the photos. So this time she wanted to 'make sure' she got what 'she' wanted. While I understood her story and wanted to help out I was in the way.

Today was the wedding. While at the temple I found the photographer that the bride hired and talked with her about the situation and to merely suggest that I would follow her and make sure I got shots that I can give to my client. She 'the photographer' told me that she would get everything and to not worry but to stay out of her way and get details shots. I thought to myself okay, I can do that but then thought 'wait, my client wants the family photos.' I talked with my client and told her that the photographer would take care of getting family shots and that maybe I should go home. My client then said 'no' I know she will get shots of us but I will 'never see' the photos and thats why I hired you because you will give them to me. So, my client, walked over to the other photographer had a 'nice' conversation about what she wanted and that she 'hired me' and wants me to get photos. The photographer was upset and said I would 'get in the way' she then said well, I hired her and want her to get some photos and walked away. DRAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, here I am in an awkward situation, thinking never to do this again, but now I've got to get shots for my client but not get in the way. OKAY. So its time to go to the doors and get the typical shots and  'the other' was setting up her tripod yes, she's in the bridal party. I thought I will give this another try and be nice and help out. I asked her if she wanted me to take the photos while she was in them, she said 'no' I have a remote. Cool, you friggin arrogant B*(#@. I also thought I can't wait to see her photos from the day shooting with a Canon 40d, isn't that like 10 years old. So I let her do her thing and I did mine. She was also talking smack about me to her cute 'little' bridal party, I think she was like 16 or something. I've got at least 10 years of experience on me and she was being arrogant.
I also had to get some shots at the reception, that was fine, I got the family stuff and left.
I was really appaled by her immaturaty I really didn't think that the other photographer would have such a big deal with it especially given the circumstance and honestly I would not have gotten in the way or did my own take on the day. I really wouldn't have taken over. I get that it would be frustrating from her point but there is also away to work together. I am really of the opinion of 'lets all be friends because frankly there are a million photographers in utah' you don't need enemies but if you are an arrogant immature brat then ya I won't be your friend.

So Peace Out and I hope I never run into you again.

The best part was this was all done at the temple, no less.

My Friend Rachel

This is a different shot for me but I love how the light is coming thru the window and illuminating her face. When I first saw it I thought crap to dark and then I looked again and thought "no, its perfect'

Isaac love Soccer too!

I finally had a chance to go to one of Isaac's game. I love watching them play magnet ball.

I decided to take some shots today at the game but missed the coolest play by Gabe. I keep regretting that I missed it but on the positive side I'm glad that I saw it with 2 eyes instead of thru my lens. He was on a breakaway with 3 other boys on him and while he was running his hardest was beating them and had possession of the ball and was ready to shoot when on of them tripped him and he fell, should have been a red card. We are so proud of how he played tonight...with all his heart. I think our Gabe is coming back. It was his best game even though we lost but he came out of it a winner by how hard he played. He was so happy!!!

Its a Hat Thing

I like all the photos with those cute hat headbands but don't really want to spend the money on them nor do I think I would use it that much. I'm just not such a huge prop fan. So, I borrowed one from my friend Katie (she pretty much has everything you can think of).
Love the results I still think I might buy one.

Monday, September 12, 2011


So yeah. I still have a 52 week photo project going on but not really keeping up on it at all just like my 365. I'm kind of spent don't want to do any of them.

Its been ten years and I still remember.
....For the husband who told his wife, "I love you" one last time before his plane went down in a field, for the wife who stopped in the stairs to call her husband to say, "I will love you forever", for the mothers and fathers who kissed their kids goodbye the morning they died, for the policemen who rushed in with the firemen to help get others out only to die themselves, for the soldiers who fought back and lost their lives. Today, tomorrow, ten years from now, we will remember.
I remember vividly that day. Greg called me and woke me up, yes I was still sleeping had a 2 and 1 year old at the time, he told me to go turn on the t.v. I did. I was in shock. I couldn't believe what I saw. I was thinking about everyone actually going thru this tragedy and how scared they where.  I was scared for them and sad for the families. 
The t.v. was on all day watching as it all unfolded. The scene at the twin towers when they fell, and smoke that followed so much destruction that day meanwhile the heaven's where flooded. Its been 10 years and I still remember.

Rio is Married

How many times have I said I don't do weddings...a million.
Well, I don't but I did this one and another to come in October. Why? Why do I do it.
I'm not that good at them (like others are, I mean, I can do them) and they take too much time.
The best part about these weddings...they're FRIENDS!!!

 Love when I can get the real look, a look right in to the soul, right deep into the eyes. So much sweetness just spills out of this little one.

1 year photo I am proud of

Remember when I tried his first year photos and he was onry.  Well I made the attempt to getting some good ones this time and I got one.
But I would not get the 'good mom award' for this one because, I think it was after this shot, he fell out of the car. You say. 'how the heck would that happen?' Well, I set him in the car so he wouldn't run into the road and left the door open, he climbed over his car seat, it tipped and he fell out, landed right on top of his head and fell onto his back. Ya, I worried if he did some damage to his neck but he seems to be okay.

in the United States
this year.
Well we celebrated with a BBQ, just like it says to, but little did I think about why...shame on me. I should do better! 
We thought to give the pool one last swim, the BIG pool, but it was too cold. So, we pulled out the warm water and filled the little one.

Love that this location looks like I'm up in the mountains but I'm not, I'm right off of state street in Pleasant Grove and the white things on the ground make it so magical.
I think it would be a cool location for Nicole V her photos are are fairytale like and magical.

Lesson learned

I lost sleep over this photo shoot. You wanna know why? I deleted their images. Yep, deleted them. Its cool that she is my sister in law but this little guy was at his best. We all where so excited because Boden was just hamming in up. I really did lose sleep. I couldn't stop thinking about the stupid mistake I made. UGH!! Been saying that a lot lately.
Lesson learned.
******To really make sure that I have downloded my photos from the session and to not assume that I have them on the computer before I format the card.

About Me

My photo
My passion in life is photography. I live eat and breath it....seriously sometimes I can't sleep at night. I love to be able to capture every moment of my children's lives...I'm not so sure how much they like it. They'll thank me later...right! I have been blessed to be married to my best friend for 12 years. I love that he tolerates all of my obsessions he may not get them but he supports me to go for it. So, thanks to my best friend for supporting me to make my DREAMS come true.
