    HIVE FIVE STUDIOS

      I met Aimee the creator of Hive Five Studios on Muses when she posted a collaboration for her super cute pins. She to give away a pin in trade for an Instagram shoutout. I told her I was a professional photographer and would get really awesome shots of her pins and it would be great to get all six and I will ship them or some of them back. She agreed and with Brandon’s help I have these awesome pictures. I gave her a couple ideas and she liked my In N Out idea which was great because I was wanting to photograph there! Here’s my welcome code for Muses…

    MISTY & LOGAN ENGAGEMENTS

    Misty and I met through following each other on social media because we had quite a few mutual friends. Years later (last September) I was photographing a wedding and saw these two in the crowd. I did not expect these two to know the couple I was photographing but I am sure glad they did. Some time during the wedding both of the bride and groom had to leave because they forgot the wedding certificate at home (hahaha kind of cute if you ask me). Well it was mostly drunk shenanigans at this point in the night, so I took a few pictures but took this chance to sit down,…

    HAPPY EARTH DAY

    Influenster came out with a challenge to share a beauty photo influenced by nature’s elements. I chose Earth with my brown tone make up I adore from my Tartelette In Bloom Palette. I also put on my fancy PUR PRO Eyelashes by @muavee in the style Socialite. These eyelashes can be worn up to 30 times and are cruelty-free, paraben free, and vegan friendly. Earth day for me is always a reminder to remember we are living on this planet and we only have this one. We need to recycle, reduce and reuse. I’ve forced my boyfriend to start recycling with me because he didn’t before. He drinks a lot of…

    HANNAH AND RYLAND

    Hannah contacted me after I posted a model call on instagram. First, we did fashion photos for her modeling portfolio but I offered to do couples photos of them as well. It took a while to get the couples photos booked because of our both busy schedules. I happened to photograph her sister a long time ago in one of my first “Cutest Couples Contest” I usually do every year and she had been following my work ever since. It was a pleasure working with Hannah and she is a great model and soul with such a sweet personality. We decided to take their photos at Scorpion Gulch which seems…

    KELLY

    Kelly responded to my model call I posted on Instagram back in February. It took a while for us to find a day that worked but, we found the most perfect day. We went to Scorpion Gulch at South Mountain in Phoenix, Arizona. South Mountain is a very popular spot for photographers. I see another photographer around Scorpion Gulch every time I go! Kelly definitely needs to pursue a career in modeling because I think she would succeed! Hopefully we can meet up in Colorado one day and do another shoot. I really love meeting new people and photographing them. It’s the only time someone trusts you when you first meet them!…

    DISNEY WORLD

    I took a trip to Disney World in December 2018 with a family I’ve known for years. I went into the trip as “that one girl who takes our family portraits every year” to “cousin Stephanie.” Back a year or two ago I was photographing Beckey and Jesse and their son Daykin and we started talking about Disney. I told them how much I love Disney Land and Disney World  and how fun it will be when Daykin gets old and tall enough to go. Jokingly we both agreed how it would be cool if I came along and took photos of their trip. That joke turned into a real…

    HIMALAYAN SALT LAMPS ARE MORE THAN JUST LOOKS

      Himalayan salt lamps are trendy lamps with benefits for your home or workplace’s air quality. When I first saw them around I was like “oh, it’s a lamp that’s made from that pink salt stuff. Cool.” Well come to find out it’s actually much more than that. Himalayan salt comes from the Himalayan Mountains in the Punjab region of Pakistan. They mine it for either powdered salt we can use on our food (I think it tastes better than regular salt) or for these lamps. They get their orange/pink color because the salt contains traces of potassium, magnesium, and zinc along with their primarily sodium chloride base. Eating salt…

    NEW YEAR, NEW MOTIVATION

    I signed up for a new gallery website workflow and I think that maybe is what lit the fire. My workflow before was to photograph a session and then meet in person to pick out the photos or I would send many many contact sheets and hope for the best. It didn’t feel professional to me. I’ve seen many photographers use ShootProof before and I’ve used it as a customer so I ended up signing up for the trial and I highly recommend it. It makes me feel better and more professional. Clients can favorite their photos and even have their friends and family favorite their photos. I can make…

    FUKUBA FAMILY

    The Fukuba family is one I’ve known for only a couple years. I saw them go from dating to married to pregnant to their son Hudson turning one year old! Miranda was my coworker in Aspen, Colorado at this job I had over the summer. I eventually got to meet her boyfriend Danny and instantly thought they were the cutest couple and secretly really wanted to photograph them. I resigned from that job but we continued to be in contact. Oddly enough we both moved to Scottsdale, Arizona and literally live within 3 miles of each other. We went on a double date and she had the cutest baby bump.…
