1/2 birthday shoot

"Take a sprinkling of fairy dust, An angel's single feather, Also a dash of love and care, Then mix them both together. Add a sentiment or two, A thoughtful wish or line, A touch of stardust, a sunshine ray... Its a recipe, for a Baby Girl truly fine."----unknown

This little girl just had her 6 month birthday and I was honored enough to capture some photos of her for her family. She is so photogenic and was pretty much happy/content for the entire photoshoot. How I wish all photoshoots could go as easily as this one did.

Family gathering

I don't care how poor a man is; if he has family, he's rich. ~Dan Wilcox and Thad Mumford, "Identity Crisis," M*A*S*H

Rejoice with your family in the beautiful land of life! ~Albert Einstein

If you look close, you will notice that I have photographed half of this group just recently.  I was honored when I got a phone call and asked to photograph them and their family for a small family gathering.  I could not have been any happier then to photograph this family.  I have known this family since my days in Florida, it brings back such memories to be back with them....I am just happy to have been able to capture these moments for them

Old photo as a simple holiday reminder

If you can't feed a hundred people, then just feed one.”
Mother Teresa quotes

I was going through some older photos that I took last year and I came across this one and what a perfect time.  It just reminded me of what this season and every season is about.  Giving and loving.  Giving goes beyond family and friends.  I hope that we all are able to give a little more of ourselves, and understand the true meaning of charity and compassion.  Wishing you all a wonderful holiday!

Santa Baby

This is the cutest Santa baby ever. I can not believe how easy it is to fall in love with such a cute little man. When he smiles, it just warms up the heart. He is just too adorable. This cute little man has some amazing parents. I love to see couples who are eachothers light and just light one another's life up with joy.

Thank You!

Wet, Cold, and Windy

A parent's love is whole no matter how many times diveded.--Robert Brault

Four kids from the age of 6 and under. I am almost positive that I could not do it. To watch the love and patience that these parents have is a wonder and a motivation.

As we showed up to the place where we planned to take photos, it started to rain. I was a little nervous, it was getting cold. I was for sure that everyone was going to be miserable and that the pictures would only show a cold, wet family. To our luck, the rain stopped and we only had the cold wind to compete with. The smiles and joys of children are priceless. It amazes me to see the energy and enthusiasum of a child, and it pleases me even more, when I have the chance to capture it.

Salon Wars 2010

"The hair is the riches ornament of women"---Martin Luther

I had the great opportunity to photograph some of the creations for Salon Aveda during the Salon Wars up in Salt Lake this weekend. I could not believe all of the talent and how much time it took to do the hair, the make-up, and of course make sure that the wardrobes were perfect also. What a great experience, it was for me. I just loved what they came up with and had to share it. Hope you all enjoy, as much as I did.

The V family

"The love of a family is life's greatest blessing"---unknown

I love this family. I have had the wonderful opportunity of knowing both the mother and father since my days in Florida, and they never cease to amaze me. I feel so blessed to know them and to have the chance to photograph them and their beautiful children.

Love and Laughter

"In family life, love is the oil the eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony"---Eva Burrows

What fun it is to spend time with a family and have the opportunity to capture their life for them. To watch the kids play and run outside, to listen and enjoy the laughter of a family that just enjoys being with eachother. I love to watch the older siblings interact with the younger ones and see the amazing connection and bond that they have with one another. To simply be a witness of it, is bliss.

Hope you enjoy these family photos as much as I had taking them.
