|I have been lucky enough to watch Freya and Seamus, my friend Kirsten's kids, grow into amazing little people over the past few years. I photographed them almost exactly two years ago.|
When I first laid eyes on Kirbi's veil, I knew it was going to be a good day. Then, as I started getting to know Kirbi and Russ, and their friends and family, I knew it was going to be an awesome day. The colorful array of DIY personal touches mixed in with vibrant flowers, and amazing bright yellow bridesmaids dresses made for a very fun palate. Despite a little rain, everyone pulled together for a beautiful ceremony showcasing a great young couple with a lifetime together ahead of them. Kirbi and Russ, it was a joy capturing your wedding! Best wishes!
My great friends, Marci and Rob, have the most beautiful, adorable 8 week old baby boy, named Dutch. Having known his parents for a number of years, it is no surprise that he is both sweet, and gorgeous! I have known Marci since my freshman year of college at CofC, when we shared a dorm room, and were teammates on the women's soccer team. I feel so lucky that we get to see each other often, and have remained such good friends. Marci, you are a great mom, and have two very lucky men in your life!
I love when a couple goes out on a limb and says forget all of the rules and what everyone else is going to think about it! It is, after all, about the couple on their wedding day, isn't it? Kate and Rick were married on Friday, April 13th, and had such a beautiful day out at
! They were so connected with each other throughout the evening. As they said their very touching vows, the golden rays engulfed the two of them, making for a fairy tale start to a wonderful evening! Congrats Kate and Rick-here's to a full and beautiful life ahead of you!
One of my very best friends in the whole world, whom I have known since I was a wee one myself, just had her first baby, Liam. I was so glad to be able to meet him and capture some shots of him, in his first few days of life! Congrats you two; he is just perfect!
Here are some of my favorites:)
And a little slideshow too...
We tethered my camera to my MacBook Pro using Lightroom 3 so the students could see the results of the lighting set ups as I shot them. Here are some of my shots, followed by the work of my students.

http://www.alexandrastyles.com/. I photographed her for the December issue Skirt! Magazine which is on stands now, and work with her on the fashion spreads also featured in Skirt!.
Lately, I've been playing around with some new(to me) cameras. It has been really refreshing shooting film. Whenever I get a roll back from the lab, it's like Christmas. A new surprise in each frame. These frames are from the first roll I shot with my toy Holga, probably about 6 months ago now. These are mainly from a bike ride I took with my friend, colleague and boss at CCforP, Stacy Pearsall. If you don't know her, you should. She is an amazing photographer, and an even better person. It's great to get out of the office and be a tourist in your own city sometimes. Hope you enjoy something a little different from me!
Mikayla and Tristan allowed me the honor of capturing their wedding day, which they celebrated in their home city of Boise. It was a treat not only to explore a new city, but to spend a weekend with such a great couple, and their crew of amazing friends and family. Mikayla studied here in Charleston, but I can see why she decided to head back to Boise after graduating! Mikayla made for an exquisite bride; the detail in her dress, accompanied by the pops of fuchsia in her bouquet sent me into photo bliss! Eventa Bella did an incredible job of decorating the old Boise Train Depot, and the ornate Cathedral of the Rockies glistened on its' own! Please enjoy the slide show and a few of my favorite shots!
