Happy New Year Everyone!!


I've had one crazy year and looking forward to another crazy year. I hope that it's filled with all the good crazy & none of the bad crazy. I've had this little dream list swimming around in my head about the things & people & locations that I want to shoot before I die. So I decided to write them down & call it my New Years Resolution 2009!!! And I ain't kidding about my resolutions, 2 years ago I made resolution to start a photography company. It took me 6 months to buy a camera but look at me now!! I haven't really thought about any other resolutions except for the ones I'm always thinking about (be more healthy, aka lose all my wobbly bits, & go to the Temple more often.) Those resolutions sort of lose their vigor after 10 years in a row. Anyhow, enjoy my list...

1. Portrait or Maternity shots up Big Cottonwood Canyon while it's snowing.
2. Bridals on the Red Cliffs in St. George

3. Bridals in the the pool at Casa Blanca (probably will never happen, but you can't stop me from dreaming.)

4. A St. George Temple wedding.

5. Newborn shoot in a field of flowers
6. Portfolio shoot for a dancer in some rundown location. (jazz or ballet would be a dream!)

7. Kids dressed up like the Nativity Scene. I saw one with 4 kids. They were dressed up as Joseph, Mary, The Angel & of course Baby Jesus. Darling, Darling, Darling!!

8. Commercial shoot for a children's hair bow company or some other cute kid's accessory

9. Commercial shoot for a men's underwear company - just kidding (sort of)

10. Tasteful boudoir shoot at the Hotel Monico in downtown SL

11. Group & individual portraits for a children's dance studio. (seriously this may take the cake for pure photography bliss!!)

12. Portrait of an 7-9 year old for their baptism & design an announcement. (I just love this age!!)

13. Second shoot at a wedding. I've only been the primary photographer. I think I'd just learn a ton!!

14. Lorin's Tat Sleeve when it's finished. (Lorin, you promised!!)

15. Bridal at the Old Cottonwood Mill

16. New baby urban style downtown
17. To shoot the Logan, Manti, DC, San Diego & Hawaii Temple.

18. Portfolio shots for a hair stylist (several different models w/ different hair styles)

Anyone in?!?!?

Here is the photo of the St. George Temple I shot over Christmas. It is for sale on my Fine Arts Blog
, and more StG Temple pix to come sometime before Valentines.
That's all for now!!

I have have to give special thanks to my mom who was my get away driving while taking the StG Temple pic. She stopped in the middle of traffic on the over pass to drop me & then stopped traffic again to pick me up. The overpass was just the perfect angle!! Thanks mom, love you!!

LOL, men's underwear!!!!:0) wobbily bits LOL :0) I loved the St. George temple pic and would love to see a newborn in a field of flowers. My next child perhaps?? Ok, well you'll likely do it before then, but I can dream too. Love you, happy new year!
