The Ropers

Monday, October 4, 2010

There are some families that have been with me from the beginning and I mean beginning. This family came to my house about 8 years ago when I was first starting out and had me do their pictures. This was at the time when I was using my strobes indoor and Jake had tape on the ground in our living room marking off where to set up my lights/tripod because at that time I was still learning how it all works. Wow....that was so long ago
Now....Meet the Ropers again....they are some of my favorite clientsthey were one of my first "paying" customers. I love it because Nat gets just as excited about her pictures as I do. They are one of the easiest families and they are just naturals in front of the camera. If you know Nat and Ryan...they are such a cute couple. After how many years of Marriage and yep, they still got it goin' on. Loved this session, kind of wished we had another 2 hours, I could have gone all night!!!!

Nat.. this is for you girl~ Come back later I will put some more on, I ran out of time and my computer is of course acting up when I need it most ;) I'll get some more on tonight...

Not quite sure if anyone is still following this blog, it has been neglected and we apologize. My friend Bonnie asked me the other day when we were going to post this is for you girl!

I can't wait to blog this whole session because it was so much fun to watch these two little cousins {aka BFF's} together.

I am really excited that I am learning so much each time I shoot, I am starting to feel comfortable in different lighting situations that I have too often stayed away from for fear of over exposure, bad exposure, white balance etc...

Enjoy these cutie lil' gals...

Hopefully the web doesn't wash out my colors too much...they look amazing in CS4...isn't taht always the story?

Bloggin' Blah's

Tuesday, June 8, 2010

I'll admit it, I've been having the bloggin' blah's....thought I would post a picture that makes me happy. What is it about blogging? I LOVE it don't get me wrong but at the same time, it's so so easy to get behind. More to come from shoots the past couple of weeks!

Picture this.....

*impromptu quick shoot

*Miss Mo posing herself...she's had her pictures taken a LITTLE too much :)

*her cute new shoes that she paid for by herself which she couldn't be more proud of

*her skirt that as of 9am this morning was going to the DI/garage sale pile...not so sure about that anymore...I think she won the battle on that one

*one other kid screaming as Miss Mo just keeps showing me her "new" poses

*me in sweats really really hungry and dreaming of my Cafe Zupa's Shanghai salad

Mini Sessions

Saturday, June 5, 2010

Can you believe it's summer already? The end of the school year is always so hectic with programs, recitals, school activities sad as I am to see the year come to an end I am ready for summer and swimming, sleeping in, going camping and mostly just relaxing.

We are also excited for our mini sessions this summer. Sounds early to think about Christmas Cards right??? Wrong! Every year I wish I would have gotten mine done earlier so this year we thought ahead. We will have 5 Christmas Card Templates to choose from once your family pictures are done. You will be able to order those through us as well.

Happy Summer Everyone!!

Zumba Anyone?

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

Ok..folks...Are you all into this Zumba craze? I will admit that I have never been to a Zumba class. Not because I don't like exercise or those great little outfits.... but this white girl has NO rhythm!!! I can't all!... My sources tell me that this is a class which requires said rhythm...
This is sources(of which I have many)also tell me that she is the BEST Zumba teacher around! This woman is the real deal. In fact the reason we were doing this photo shoot is because she submitted a video to the Zumba National Convention in Florida and won! She is going to be an instructor there this summer!
If you want to check her out for a class, she teaches at the Kaysville Sportsplex on Monday mornings at 9am or Wednesday evenings at 7pm.
GO! Get your Latin grove on!

Rain Rain go away....

Remember Lindsay from a few weeks back? Well we started her senior session and then got rained last week we tried again but it wasn't too long until the rain came AGAIN. But that's ok....this time the rain was a little too late and we got some great great shots. Here's a peek at a couple...more to come!

Oh how I love Spring!

Feels like my camera has been lonely for so long! I am so excited to see the sun again and to get back out with my old friend...actually it's an entirely new old friend...which I am loving! (is anyone still following me?) Doesn't matter...check out these GORGEOUS kids! They were so much fun...

By the way.... Happy Mothers Day!

You've already met Little Miss D but how about her cute siblings? Take a lookey at these handsome little buggers. These guys were so so good. The one year old was not only so cute but so easy and happy....

Little Miss D

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

This just may be one of my new faves!! Not only do I love this adorable flawess little face but this girl had some funky spunk. Truth be told I am a closet dancer...I love to get down to some good music and I think little Miss D is right there with me. At one point her Mom had some music playing and the moves and beat this girl had....well, let's just say I could do a whole session just with that.

Emily..more to come soon!

I couldn't decide between color

or B&W

I've been learning more and more about textures and I'm excited to be able to start adding this into my post processing. Still working out some details but thought I'd put a before and after shot.
