text message recieved

"I have been looking at maternity photo ideas and I kind of hate them, so, I just want MCP touch editorial looks where I happen to have a baby bump." And ... "I might bring my doggie for a couple pics." - Jocelyn

Ballet Dancers, Jordan & Jennifer

A dance floor made of salt

I reached out to ballet dancers and real-life couple, Jordan Veit of Ballet West and Jennifer Christie of The Utah Metropolitan Ballet, this past summer, and invited them out the mosquito infested edges of The Great Salt Lake. They graciously accepted.

If you happen to follow me on Instagram, I'm sure you saw me attempt to show them my dance skillz. If not, you didn't miss much -- we only learned that they can leap, I can not.

Time of his life

When Cole's mom first contacted me she mentioned that he was about to turn 16 and that she wanted some great pictures to document this time in his life. "I feel like your photography can capture so many parts of his personality." It was a validating email. First, because a potential client wanted pictures just because and second, she trusted me to do it right. Proof that every day is an occasion.

Helping Hands

Reaching out to two individual strangers through Instagram -- with limited or no modeling experience -- and asking if they would be willing to shoot is a risky way of casting personal work -- I've had a few no-shows -- but David and Jenny were a pleasant surprise, ready and willing. And, one even brought me a great assistant (thanks Gabi, for the help).

Brainstorm Inc // Corporate Head Shots

Brainstorming

For a number of years, I've had the pleasure of taking corporate head shots for the employees at Brainstorm Inc. They're a fun company to work with who has always let me take the lead.

They always invite their employees to bring an item (or items) that give a hint to a passion or hobby of theirs. I've always enjoyed the challenge of including what they bring -- the newborn baby was a first. Here are a few of my favorites from last years "picture day."
