october workshop

When Jalene asked me last February if I’d be interested in teaching a workshop with her, I had no idea it would become something so wonderful. I have loved all three workshops we’ve been able to do this year and I’m so grateful for the experience that each has been. Every time I learn more about business, myself, teaching, and even make sweet friends with the attendees. It’s all such a blessing.

We photograph each attendee and even though nobody really enjoys it (except Jalene and me!), I’m always so grateful we do it. If nothing else, it allows me to remember these beautiful people who come and trust us with their businesses.

I think I’m going to have to come back to Utah every October. It’s the most beautiful time of year and the perfect time to do some sessions while I’m there. I was especially excited for this one because MeKenzie and I went to high school together and I’m pretty sure I haven’t seen her since. And how cute is her family??

Words can’t express how much I love this family. Well, okay, so it’s MY family — my sister, brother-in-law, and the cutest kids in the world. One of the best things about being a photographer has been the opportunity to photograph these little humans as they grow up. I love it. AND, best news ever: they’re here to visit me this week! Well, me and Disneyland. ;)

Hey, I know those guys ;)

Fabulous job as always, and I can’t wait to see more!
Do you know the people who live at that property? Oddly that’s where I photographed a reception a couple weeks ago! Crazy small world.

I had almost forgotten how much I love photographing senior girls. And then beautiful Olivia came along and reminded me why this is some of my favorite kind of work. There’s something about being 17 and on the verge of life changing so drastically. Having an idea of what is ahead makes me excited for them — even though the years following high school are hard, complicated, stressful, and full of the most important decisions you’ll ever make… I find myself wanting to tell them how much there is to look forward to. The best is definitely yet to come.
