About Me

My photo
St. George, Utah, United States
I'm just a woman with a camera, having an outrageous time! I carry my camera like most women carry a hand-bag. I especially like (and see) beauty in forgotten things. I love OLD buildings, rusty vehicles, fences and posts and details. When I’m photographing people, I love: natural expressions. relationships. simplicity. smiles. emotion. sweetness. laughter. shyness. grumpy frowns. silly giggles. stubborness. bare feet and a neat personality that just shines.



"When you encounter difficulties and 
contradictions in life, do not try to break 
them, but bend them with gentleness 
and time..."

My granddaughter, Emma is just starting to learn gymnastics.  She's only 7 but she loves it already; I think she's found "HER THING".  she's strong and she does a great job!  She was showing me her stuff the other day when she and I and her brother Alex were playing at the creek. What was especially cool about it was she was on a board acrossed the creek ... her own little "balance beam" in nature ... 

I'm INCREDIBLY impressed.  YOU GO Emma!

"We are born at a given moment, 
in a given place and like 
vintage years of wine,
 we have the qualities 
of the year and of the season of which 
we are born." ~ Carl Gustav Jung ~

Here are some shots of Cassidy and Sheridan. I tweeked them just a little, to 
give them a  VINTAGE feel. 
I kinda like how they turned out and wanted to share ... 



 "Teenage girls:  they all have
 their insecurities, but for the most part, 
they have a very healthy self-esteem ..."  

Last week's BACK TO SCHOOL photo shoot with a couple of teeny-bopper girls was just hilariously FUN!!
This is Cassidy and Sheridan.
I found a killer location; an old abandoned pink & blue trailer and also an old school yard that I thought would help create some great photo's of the girls. 
The three of us had a blast until we ran out of good light. 
These two are excited for 9th grade  ...  LOOK OUT High School!!
I can't wait to do another photo shoot with these two; hopefully soon!!
THANKS for the fun time girls ... 
Cassidy and those blue, blue eyes!

just a little 'sassy'

"reflecting" on what life has in store for them ...
