The beauty of new life

It’s a simple glow. The light that warms the smile of a new mother to be. The I’m tired but ready, anxious yet terrified, goodbye and a hello, simple glowing smile that speaks volumes. It’s never quite what you imagine it’ll be. How it’ll be to look into your child’s face for the first time. Your entire life you’ve imagined this one moment, you’ve heard all of the stories or labor and pain or no pain and doctors and nurses and hospital stays and what you should do and shouldn’t do. You’ve heard it all and it all goes out the window it seems. It’s a numbing moment and the room seems to go entirely still except for the very first cry you hear from your child…and then you see them. You see this face and it’s everything or nothing you’ve imagined but it’s yours. This little tiny life that’s cradled in your arms in now yours. Life to sustain and nurture. It’s all yours and once again your tired but ready, anxious and terrified, saying goodbye to an independent life and hello to a partnership. I will never forget that moment. That all encompassing, spiraling moment that boils down to the first glance. The first look at the rest of your life. Those eyes you look into that first glance will tell you so many stories, cry a million tears, gather wrinkles from smiles. Those lips will give you, bottom lip pouts and words of love and infinite kisses. That first glance is immeasurable. Enjoy it, hold that tiny second in your heart forever because it’s ever changing and gone all to quickly. I can’t wait to meet her, congratulations Jackie and Tyler.

SMALL GROUP WORKSHOP

So I’ve decided to do another workshop!! It will be held Saturday September 29th from 10am-10pm. It’s only $500 for the full day of instruction. It will be held in my downtown Salt Lake city studio, it’s an amazing space. It’s going to be a small group, only 6 spots available. This means individual attention, more time shooting, more time spent on editing. I only do smaller workshops. I’m adamant that I get to spend time with each and every one of you. This is a HUGE sale for me, and I’m sure it will fill fast. We will spend time during the day on instruction, understanding how I find my best light and shoot in many different lighting situations. How I look for and choose locations. How I pose and work with my models. How I use my camera and equipment. We will spend a good portion of the day working with models, shooting 2 sessions, one in natural indoor light and one in outdoor light. We will then spend time learning how I edit in Photoshop and how I achieve rich, warm and striking images in Photoshop. This will be an amazing day! Can’t wait to meet you all!

you are my home

It’s so easy to look at the clock and see that a day has passed before you’d even known it had begun. Flying by all too quickly we lose so many moments that slip into what we will call our past all too suddenly. When life gets crazy and it seems there is never going to be enough hours or energy to push through the tread mill of the day, it’s hard to take time to just step off and stop for a moment to see what is in that very second right before you. I would not say that patience is my gift in this life. Perhaps that’s why photography fits me so well, a quick snap and instant art. I am learning though that life is a series of pictures some perfect, some imperfect, some simple and some momentous. And it’s impossible to rush the process, although trust me…I have tried. Life happens today, in this moment and it can be missed so easily. I’m working on living in this space, finding the peace and patience it takes to understand the whole story. I’m working on not letting a smile from my daughters escape my eyes, or the colors of the sunset melt away before they grace my heart. Yes my life is chaotic and then way too quiet at times. But I also see this time in my life exactly as it is, beautiful, and full of love, full of smiles and hugs and friends and family. Full of hard work and perseverance and moments where I may want to quit but I push on. Full of belly laughs and yes, tears too, and it’s a beautiful life. Here’s one of the daily reminders that I am blessed. Every single day, I hear her little voice say “uv you mama”…and I melt. Trying to slow down to see the beauty in those wondrous moments that are so easy to slip away unnoticed. Those moments where a winter hat and a lazy summer day alone with mom can be just as perfect as I’ve ever imagined, and although I don’t have all I want right now in my life ( and I will never give up the fight), you can bet I have all I’ll ever need. You are my home.

Uv you too baby…
