Did YOU win the free photoshoot???


Sorry for the delay in post. I forget that Haven has school ALLLLL day now, so I can't just put her to work whenever I like. She likes to do the name pulls and is is now negotiating fees. If you don't know this about my daughter, you do now. She is the BAG LADY. She likes to collect bags and money to put in these bags...therefor, she is affectionately called "MONEY BAGS" in our home.

Congrats to the lucky winner. E-mail me when you want to get your shoot scheduled! Thank you to EVERYONE who entered!!! It's been so much fun for me!

AUBS FRIEND/PHOTOGRAPHER








Lovely Aubry! Thanks for such a great time girl. You are so much fun to shoot, I'm glad you finally got to be on the other end of the camera for a change.
Aubs is an up and coming photographer. She is beautiful, creative, crazy, dedicated and such a hard worker. I've been lucky to have her assist me a time or two and I see nothing but great things in her future. I had a bunch of technical malfunctions with my light and I can honestly say I was NOT impressive to behold. We were hot, and sweating, and in need of a major diet soft drink but we still had a great time, and Aubry still looked amazing! LOVE YA!!

Contest still going on below. Make sure you sign up for the chance to win a free shoot!

SUMMER 2009 LUTALI FAMILY PICTURES -Newport Beach











I was finally able to wrap up all of the Lutali Family shoots. It was so much fun and I really can't say enough about our weekend with them.
I very rarely get far behind in my editing. I went from a wedding shoot, to 7 family shoots, and a one on one work shop, back to hawaii for my grandfathers funeral, and then back shooting a wedding, a summer cold and full day school from my girl. I am amazed I made it through with my sanity. I'm feeling more like myself and I am on my way to the post office to send a bunch of packages.
Thank you so much all of you who are so willing to send a kind message, or call! I really feel so very blessed to have incredible friends and peers who truly have my best interest in mind!

Thank you again LUTALI FAMILY!!! See you all soon....I need to find some of that amazing funnel cake!

Afton and Zach Wilson- Married











































"If you could marry anyone in the whole world, who would it be??" Have you ever thought about that? If YOU could have the pick of the lot, and choose exactly who you wanted to spend the rest of your life with....WHO would YOU choose? Me? My husband of course!!
Afton's mom asked her this very question over a year and a half ago. Her reply surprised even Afton......Zach Wilson. They had known each-other for years, but she was always the little girl, and he was the older kid that all the girls had a crush on. They weren't dating, or even close to dating for that matter, and yet the world turned itself upside down and inside out, to make her wish come true. Life has a funny way of doing that.
I heard once that marriage is the "happiness decision". If you succeed in money, your job, and everything you lay your hand to and marry the wrong person, you will never be happy. On the other hand if you fail at everything you attempt, lose every penny and every possession you've earned, but somehow manage to marry the right person, you will still be happy.
Love like this is a pleasure to document. It is beautiful, and real, and the joy it creates is truly remarkable. I love both Afton and Zach and their families.
The reception was held at Wadley Farm in Lindon. It was a perfect Summer evening. Sherry Perry was the genius behind the beautiful flowers. Everything was breath taking.
Thank you to all you wonderful Delgrosso's, Higbee's, and Wilson's!!! And a big thank you to Aubry and Sepa for assisting and making some seriously lovely images! Love you girls!!
