Sneaky Neaky Peaky…

You may recognize my cousin, from her engagement photos, bridals, and a family portrait session previously. I am starting on a new series of portraits highlighting my family’s international flair, and I realized that I saw Nanika and her daughter soon after their births at the same hospital.

Had a great photo shoot before Christmas with a cute family. They wanted to do a Christmas cards and get a family portrait.

More Holiday Card Designs!

Here are the other options for Holiday card designs. I was at Neilsen’s Grove Park in Orem last week, and it is a beautiful location for portraits. There is a pond, gardens, trellises with ivy, a barn and a green house. The weather looks good for Sat–a little chilly, but sweaters will look nice. Email or call 646.685.9580 to schedule. See the previous post for more details.

Nika’s Bridals

Nika and I had fun doing her bridal portraits. She’s been over her princess phase for awhile, but understandably choose a big poofy dress. I thought that the castle style amphitheater would be the perfect location for these photos.

Digging through the archives

I was going through some old photos from high school recently, and was pleasantly surprised to be reminded of a project I did while I was a junior, my first year in the intensive photo program at Fort Hayes Metropolitan Education Center. Here are some of the images:
