Winter Time

The color of springtime is in the flowers, the color of winter is in the imagination. ~Terri Guillemets

Today I had the chance to work with a new model and have to say how impressed I was with her. We were out in the cold and she did not complain once. It started out pretty nice, with the sun out and it being some what nice. However, it turned quickly from sun to no sun and cold. Before you knew it, the snow was falling and I felt as if my fingers were going to fall off. Emily was amazing and so easy to work with. Utah is just beautiful in the winter, but I have to say I am feeling as if I am ready for spring already.

This years theme and project

Last year I had the chance to give away a free photoshoot to a wonderful woman, who has overcome so many trials. I have been inspired to go beyond that this year.

This year I have decided to end the year with a formal photo gallery of a specific theme that I will be working on over the course of the year. The theme I have decided to track is "they shall overcome all things" (D&C 76:60). If you or someone you know has flourished among the trials of life please share your story with me and I will compose a portrait of "overcoming all things". You will receive a photo from the series and I will use these to inspire others to overcome their trials. Thank you for taking this into consideration. I will complete at least 12 of these stories/portraits this year with your help.

Please send me your stories and of those that you love to be chosen for this project this year.  I am excited and want to share the beauty of life with all that I can, by capturing real lives and the stories that go with it.

Thank You

++all participants in the photoshoot must be willing to sign a model release
