Welcome to my new site! My brain has been on overload for about a week now. I have taken the winter (slower) months to do a lot of research, work and training. I’m ending this time spending a week training with Skye Johansen (a photographer in UT). You can see her site here. She is an amazingly talented photographer who I relate to on many levels. What levels? She started her company 5 years ago, has 4 kids of her own (youngest 2) and is self taught. I started my studio in 2007, have 2 (almost 3) kids and am self taught as well. Her wisdom and insights are like taking a fast forward pill with my business. Love it and love her!
With that said, I will share that I had the opportunity to download all of the old posts from my old blog to this one and opted not to. After looking through my old work in comparison to what I’m learning now…its humbling. So I decided to start this site with these photos. I took these photos of my stepson, Hudson. My niece, Madison. My nephew, Ian. I took them before working with Skye – but was learning some new editing techniques, so we’ll include them. I’ll start with the boys. Here is cutie pie Hudson – now 7 years old.
Next is my nephew Ian. My brother, Tom, brought Madi & Ian up for a play date and dinner. I casually asked if I could snap a few shots of Madi in the studio since I do not have a little girl who likes to pose. Hudson is getting much more tolerant of my picture taking…but Finn, oh Finn. Finn is another story we’ll get to shortly. Ian, however, saw Madi getting her pictures taken and asked why he wasn’t included! : ) So I had him jump in and grab a few shots. Too cute.
Although Ian had several other cute shots….I kept this limited in respect for your time.
Finally, here is Madison. Sweet, poised, beautiful girl!
