Brett & Mia {graduation photography}

31 May 2011
This was a fun shoot for me.  Brett had been one of my husbands good friends since like Junior High so Clay came along on this shoot to help me out.  Brett and Mia both graduated from Weber State University this Spring from the same English department and they wanted some photos not only to document their graduation but also to show them as a couple.  I was more than happy to oblige.  We started out in downtown Ogden for some more casual shots and made our way up to Weber State's campus where we finished off with some photos in their caps and gowns.  Congratulations again!
Doesn't Mia have amazingly gorgeous hair? I love it, especially paired with her bright blue eyes.

McKenzei & Tylee {bridal photography}

18 May 2011
If you have been following my blog you already saw a sneak peak of this lovely bride to be.  I was so excited to work on this shoot and had WAY too many favorites to choose from.  I love when pretty people make my job so easy.  I basically had free reign to do whatever I wanted on this shoot because McKenzei, and the small entourage we had traveling along to help out, was up for anything!  Unfortunately, on this day that meant posing in super cold winds and hiking around in the weeds with 4 inch glitter stilettos on.  I know I say this a lot but, I think it was totally worth it!  I love love love these images so much.  Along with McKenzei being a total trooper and looking fabulous doing it, little Tylee also looked just stunning.  Don't let the sunshine in these photos fool you... When I say it was cold I mean it was really cold and Tylee was just shakin.  However, she did not want to miss out on being a part of this shoot.  She likes to tell everyone that she is also getting married when her dad and McKenzei tie the knot.  So, she also needed to get her bridal photos done too.  I love how much McKenzei is making Tylee a part of this wedding and I can't wait for the big day!
Ummm yeah, they really are this cute together all the time and Tylee just loves her "bonus mom" or "mama bear"... She is still trying to decide what to call her. :)
Don't you just love these shoes? This girl lives in high heels and I am always a little jealous and amazed at the same time every time I see her fabulous shoes.  You would think since I am barely breakin 5 feet that I would wear taller shoes.  But, as always I stick to my flats...  Mostly so my feet don't end up hating me at he end of the day.
I loved how the sun washed over everything in this valley.  We ended up with lots of golden sun flare!
I will finally end this huge post with some gorgeous green eyes.  Hope you all love this shoot as much as I do!

Sneak Peak!

Wendy {senior photography}

13 May 2011
I don't even know where to start with this post.  Wendy is way beyond amazing!  If you are lucky enough to know this girl then you know what I am talking about.  She is currently a senior at East High right now and plans on going to Weber State University to pursue a career in Criminal Justice.  She has already accomplished so much in her life and will definitely make something amazing of herself in the future.  Along with being smart, unbelievably gorgeous, an amazing athlete and kinda funny,  she has a drive to overcome and dominate anything that comes her way.   Congratulations Wendy!!! I am so proud of you and your upcoming graduation.  You are one of the best people I have ever met and I am so grateful that I have had the opportunity to have you in my life.  Love you!!!
Yeah, her hair is really that long and it is even more beautiful in person!  She has been accused of being "the tangled girl" more than once.

Alisha {senior photography}

I love Alisha!! Really I do. She is truly an amazing girl... SBO assembly chair, varsity volleyball captain, varsity basketball player, honor roll student, absolutely gorgeous, and one of the nicest people you will ever meet!  Have I gushed over her enough yet? Oh yeah, she was also accept to Brigham Young Univeristy and will be a cougar next year.  I was lucky enough to get to know Alisha while working at East and I am sure that I will stay close to her for years to come... Cross your fingers! I am sure that she will accomplish great things in her life and I can't wait to see what the future holds for her.  Congratulations again on your graduation and good luck with everything you do. (Though I don't think you will need it!)
