The *B* Family (Does it feel like I’ve had a lot of those lately???)

Phew! So I feel like I’ve been running a marathon with all the editing and posting I’ve been needing to do! Unfortunately for all y’all, I tend to let the blog posts fall by the wayside! But I had to get this family’s pictures up because the oldest has gone back to London, and she needs to see them!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you enjoy!

Wallace & Gromit anyone? ๐Ÿ™‚

Poor Meagan is the shortest of the bunch…

Now for the solo shots! Ian here is graduating this year, which is crazy to me because he goes to school with my little brother. (Little is a relative term–he’s 6’6″!)

Love this shot. Ian proceeded to scale the 15 foot wall to attack his dad after this… Just goes to show you–you are never ever safe from tall people!

Thanks so much for the crazy fun time! ๐Ÿ™‚

Salt Lake Trip

So, I work with the young women (ages 12-18) in my church, and for a midweek activity we went up to Salt Lake to tour a couple places, including an “underground” tour of the LDS Conference Center! (Yup. We have connections.) Long story short, I took some fun architectural shots I wanted to share. Plus some pictures of most of my young women! Aren’t they all gorgeous!? We had an activity previous to our trip at which I taught some photography basics, and as part of it, we practiced taking portraits–of EVERYONE! ๐Ÿ™‚ So… just for fun!

I am so obsessed with the inside of the conference center. The architect was a genius.

This is where our inside contact works. ๐Ÿ™‚

A view from backstage. Sweet.

I think the bubble mirrored cameras are so fun. Thought I’d try a self-portrait. Not the greatest, but you can see my growing belly! Technically this is the first real pregnancy belly shot! It looks like I have a small volleyball under my shirt! PAH!

Dancing the Night Away…

It’s not too often I get hired to do something other than weddings or portrait sessions, so when my good friend Dave Smith called me up to see if I could take some pictures at a dance he was DJing, I was thrilled! And a little intimidated–let’s be honest, here! Super low light, lots of movement… it would be a new experience for me! But I was crazy-excited to give it my best shot! It was quite the dance, too! It was all I could do to keep myself from dancing with the young’uns for a couple songs! If any of you are in the market for a DJ, check out Dave’s site! www.playituputah.com. He’ll throw you a killer party!

This is my favorite shot from the night… I love the color and the energy!

Say Hello…

…to the 4A High Jump State Champion! But oh yeah… he’s also my little brother. “Little” brother. Don’t worry. He’s 6’5″. He jumped 6’8″ to take the title. Here are some shots of him working his magic!

Yup. That last one was a clean jump. No wiggling of the bar there. You think I sound proud? You should have seen how my dad’s chest swelled when he took state. ๐Ÿ™‚ These last two don’t do it justice, but I love them anyways.

“A Night to Remember…”

Yup. That was my little brother’s prom theme. I guess it is supposed to sound romantic? Meh. I got a fun and new opportunity back in April to take the pictures for his prom group! It was a lot of fun! Here are the finished products…

This gorgeous girl turned 15 and I got to photograph the event! It was quite the party! ๐Ÿ™‚ For example… I also got to go on my first limo ride!
