Excellent photography is an art, not an accident or the result of having a good camera. I started my business back in the days of film, before widely available digital cameras and photo editing software. I understand and capture the art.
I do many photo shoots in a variety of beautiful outdoor locations, also homes, temples, churches, historic buildings, and in-studio. I offer family friendly pricing for Newborn portraits, Baby's First Year, Maternity/Nursing, Family Portraits, and Special Occasions such as Blessing/Christening, Baptism, Prom, Engagement, and Weddings and special birthdays.
Individual portraits for school, business or modest art.
As a midwife for 13 years and a mother of six, I am good with children of all ages.
I love animals and am good with most pets, everything from rats to cats, dogs to horses, lizards and birds.
For newborns, the best time is during the first 10-14 days from birth. I strongly recommend newborn sessions be done in your home to reduce the risk of infection. Too many bacteria these days are becoming resistant to antibiotics and disinfectants. Sadly, other babies can pick them up in the hospital and be contagious before showing symptoms. Using your home, your blankets, your toys reduces the risk to your baby and I can be very creative with what you have!
For weddings and other special occasions, I can also provide a second photographer to help capture different perspectives and more of the informal guest interactions.
If you want action portraits such as river running, climbing, biking, rodeo and others, I'll be happy to work with you.
I am willing to travel to most locations in Utah, most of Idaho, SW Montana, parts of Wyoming and parts of Colorado.
