Yes, I really did meet and photograph David Michael Kennedy. It was kind of like meeting Oprah. not that I’ve met her but if I ever do, I’ll be prepared for that surreal type of experience. I’m out the door for now so I’ll save the story for another time!
I love photographing children with red hair. The red hair and blue eyes on this young girl with her fair skin is almost magical. She seems a bit “Fey” or fairy touched. I photographed her along with her extended family, a group of 18 (nine of which were under 9), which I almost never do. Even though it was tricky trying to get all the shots, the family was so lovely to work with and fabulously patient. Of course my favorite shots were the kids shots, so be looking for more next week.
We only had just a few minutes for this session. The clouds were gracious enough to hold back the rain until I could get some beautiful shots of Riley. She just turned eight and her parents wanted some special photos before she was baptized. Riley was so easy and delightful to work with and because I love her so much, it made the pictures all the more meaningful.
Roz and Collin picked the perfect place for their engagement session, S & S Short Line Train Park in Farmington, Utah. We climbed inside an abandoned railroad car for the shot above. The afternoon light coming through the open car door was just perfect, just like Roz and Colin. I have a modern style of portraiture so the time we spent together was carefree and fun.
They met as many couples do nowadays, on the internet. Collin had two qualities he was looking for: someone who loved soccer or video games. Well Roz is a lifetime lover of soccer, so the fact that she has no interest in video games wasn’t something that dissuaded Collin. They quickly fell in love and as we laughed and took pictures in the Park, I could feel that their genuine love and affection spread all over me, mushy-moo-moo:)
They both photographed like models. I swear Colin, who I took to calling Matt, could not take a bad picture if he tried.

I have a terrible habit when I shoot…I simply fall in love with my clients and Ashley here is no exception. Isn’t she beautiful? And she photographs so incredibly well! This girl has potential! She will be modeling for Wihmian UTG so if you’d like to hire her, that’s where you’ll need to go. http://www.wilhelmina-utg.com
