"You don't raise heroes, you raise sons. And if you treat them like sons, they'll turn out to be heroes, even if its just in your own eyes"---Walter M. Schirra, Sr.

"A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles."--Christopher Reeve

I have so many heroes in my life, some my age, some older, and some much, much younger. When I was younger, I was determined that I could save the world and make it a much better place to live. I have found that throughout my life that I have met individuals who have shown me that anything is possible.

I would like all to meet Jonah, he is 2 years old and has been diagnosed with Bronchiectasis. He is treated similarly to those who have Cystic Fibrosis. He makes regular trips up to Primary Children's hospital for different procedures, doctor visits and so forth. He usually always has a cute little smile on his face and has the most contagious laughter that I have ever heard. He is definitely a little boy and gets into mischief even up at the hospital. Oh, how I love this little man and what he has taught me about life, I can never repay him.

"A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous."--Coco Chanel

Bridals are so much fun. To see a beautiful woman all dressed up and spending the day celebrating being a woman and knowing that soon she will be married to her Prince Charming. It just makes me smile. :)

Saturday night

"The higher your energy level, the more efficient your body. The more efficient your body, the better you feel and the more you will use your talent to produce outstanding results."
--Anthony Robbins

I had another fun shoot this weekend with such an energetic, fun, young lady. If only we all had so much energy, we could accomplish so much in this life time. Times like this, make me miss my own youthful energy that I once had.

Friday night shoot

“The difference between pretty and beautiful is-
pretty is temporal-whereas beautiful is eternal.”---Unknown.

I met two beautiful women last night. I had the chance to work with an amazing model (Aalorah) and MUA (Rachel Hunter-Crag). It is amazing when you work with people and afterward you just feel so great because of the people you had the chance to spend the last couple of hours with.

sometimes, you just have to have a little bit of fun

Draper Temple

My husband and I went up to Draper the other day to go to the LDS temple up there. It was our first time going to that temple, so I had to take a few shots. I usually do not take photos of architecture, but it was so beautiful, I could not resist. We are thinking of putting one up in the home, which one should I use? Which is your favorite? I am kind of torn between the 2.

Learning to love oneself. We all should do it

“Live life fully while you're here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You're going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don't try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.”

Anthony Robbins

"We must survive, all of us. Blood for me: a cooked bird for you. What is the difference?"

---The Count in the BBC production of "Count Dracula"

"Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. and when you look into an abyss, the abyss also looks into you."


What fun. I had the chance to shoot Vampires this weekend. Serenity (my daughter) had too much fun shooting. She was laughing and giggling the entire time, it was hard to get her to act scared and frightened. Finally we got some, but it was just fun to do.
