While visiting Southern Utah, I adjusted the settings, and handed my “nice camera” over to my mom and said, “Will you please take a picture of me and Simon?”. I want evidence that I existed in this family (since I’m always the one behind the camera). Bless my mother’s soul, this is the best we got.

I chuckled when I saw it cause it reminded me of this little story going around on Pinterest

I have been told quite a few times that “Wow! Your camera takes really nice pictures”. I know those who say it mean well, but it’s not the camera that takes the photos, it’s the person (sillies!). Remember that next time you opt to have someone with a “nice camera” take important (wedding, engagement, baby, family memories) photos for you.

This soapbox moment is brought to you by Canon, and Nikon . The “really nice camera” makers. ;)

I snapped these mere hours (less than 24) before giving birth. She embodies that coveted pregnancy glow. Plus, have you ever seen a full term belly that is so beautiful!? Not to mention…this is her THIRD child!

7 years ago today, I thought I knew (but really I didn’t) about the wild ride of marriage, family, and life that I signed up for. It was a beautiful day, and has been a wonderful 7 years with this man.

I have learned a lot over the past 7 years some of which are:

- I don’t know everything

- My capacity to love is bigger than I thought


- I wish I was as thin as I was when I thought I was fat

- I can do hard things, and have an amazing support system in my spouse (like go through school, the daily grind of having children, give birth naturally, start and maintain a business)

- the companionship in marriage is the best. I love it.

- Being romanced and wooed is wonderful, but being silly is better.

And much more. Happy Anniversary dearest Brantie!

A Float Wrap is a new, unique option to display images. Float Wraps are similar to Gallery Wraps or Standout mounted prints in that they add dimension by extending out from the wall. Float wraps are unique in that they appear to be floating on the wall with the main focus on the image!

This particular Float Wrap of my sweet little 3 week old Simon is printed on canvas which adds an extra luxurious feel to the image. An option is also in Lustre photographic paper too.

There really are no words that I could say to describe this. So I won’t say much. The emotion in the photos speak for themselves, and to me that is priceless. Hayley and Brandon, THANK YOU for allowing me to be a part of this most momentous occasion in your lives. I don’t think I will ever forget it. I can’t even describe what this was like as a photographer, mother, someone who’s given birth, and a friend. It was amazing. Hayley was AMAZING! She gave birth to this child with ZERO pain meds. Not even a tylonol. She’s amazing. The nurses and team of midwives were so supportive, and brought such a peace and calm to the room. Plus they didn’t even mention the “E” word to Hayley once because they knew that’s not what she wanted. It was so incredible. Here is baby Hudson’s birth story told through photographs that will forever be a part of his family’s story and history. What an honor to be able to capture it.
