Have you ever wanted to learn or practice lifestyle photography?  This is in the moment, candid photos taken of subjects without much posing.  For our April PUG, we will be photographing a few children at the Layton Park on April 25th from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.  Because summer is almost here, I have had a lot of people ask how to capture children in runnign and playing on a playground, outside, etc.  So here is your chance to come and experiment.

Please RSVP, so I know how many to count on.


Looking forward, in May we will be doing lighting 101!


Kosha Dillz

June 18, 2010

I would like to introduce a great friend of mine who is quickly becoming a very well know hip hop artist…he is going on tour with Snoop Dogg this summer! His stage name is Kosha Dillz, but his real name is Rami. I am not sure which is bigger, his talent or his heart. He is willing to help anyone, including 3 helpless kitties. Kosha is Jewish and chooses to only eat Kosha brand meats. One of the things that can be difficult as an artist of any type, is finding people to believe in you and what you can offer the world. A lot of people who do really well in show biz have agents or record companies promoting them. Kosha has done all of it by himself with the support of friends and family. If you are into hip hop, I suggest you check him out. He is FRESH! I have photographed two of his shows as well as one amazing portrait session at Saltair. Jon Woodbury was kind enough to come along and assist as well as  shoot with me-the results are awesome. To check out more of Kosha go here. To see Jon’s photos from the shoot go here. I am about ready to tell you the coolest part about this post…are you ready?  REALLY?  You really have to watch the slideshow because the song in the slideshow is one that Kosha wrote just for ME! I LOVE IT. Enjoy!

I did a portrait session of this adorable family last year and then had the awesome privilege to photograph them again this year. I wanted to post this session today because the baby bump you see in the pictures is now gone. Yes…the little one arrived a few days ago. Congratulations!

What do you get when you have two photographers, 3 lights, one camera, 12 degree weather, a darling family and TEN MINUTES? An impromptu photo session in-between jobs and a few cute pictures to send out to family for Christmas cards. Wow….it is amazing that anything turned out! I have to give Jon and Lori props though, because they are also in the photo biz so they were great at posing on their own while I got the attention of little missy! To see behind the scenes at this shoot watch this clip.

Shearer Family

December 20, 2009

Untitled-1TWOGWENNcuteALLI-129all-126-116-75-74 I love it when families work on details of the shoot with me beforehand. Things like wardrobe, hair accessories, tights, shoes, sweaters, hair, makeup and selecting the location of the shoot make A HUGE difference in the outcome of the photos. Meet the Shearer Family. They were a perfect example of one of those families that prepared well in advance and they have gorgeous pictures to show for it. (Not to mention the kiddos are so freaking cute, plus they picked a pretty cool photographer too.) Next time you book a shoot, whether it be a wedding, family, or senior session please take the time to plan the details in advance. I am good, but lets face it…I am not THAT good! :0)
