KidLabs in Sandy, Utah

Graffiti walls for photographers are pretty much like crack. We love them. They can be hard to find though. No longer for northern Utahns though! KidLabs in Sandy is getting ready to open, and was kind enough to invite some photographers and models around to shoot in their space. All the walls are covered in an array of beautiful colors, words, faces, and more. You can’t help but stop a moment and admire each individual piece and how it interacts with the others. It’s stunning!

Obviously, we all spent hours creating together, having fun, laughing, helping each other, and trying new techniques. Here are a few now, and I will probably post more later because I can.

Hunger Games Shoot ~ District 1 ~ Luxury

May the Odds be everrrr in your favor

A shoot done with the amazing Sara LaFollette as makeup artist. Kira Lake as our lovely lady model, and Maclain Drake as the handsome male model. Olga Assaya put the dress together in two days!! Amazing. Awesome. This shoot was one of those ones where we had two days of planning and just over an hour to shoot. So much to do in so little time, yet it all fell together so perfectly despite all the issues we faced. I am so proud of this and so excited to do more districts!

Tooele Glamour Photography ~ Snow White Glamour Shoot

My series of glamour fairytales are still going. I absolutely love it. Last week I had the ability to photograph Samantha Eastin for my Snow White.

Here are two of my favorites so far, just after Snow White has taken a bite of the poisoned apple.

Stay tuned for more fairy tale fun  as well as some other shoots coming up 🙂

 

Tooele Glamour Photographer ~ The Little Mermaid with a Twist

I’ve always wanted to do fairy tale shoots. What photographer doesn’t? There’s something about the romance, the break from reality, all the ways to interpret it and make it your own. My interpretation is a bit sultry, a bit of glamour, and a hint of boudoir. In other words, classy but sexy princesses.

I’ve actually been hesitant to blog this kind of thing and do it. But it is one of my passions. To make a person feel incredible, to make them laugh during the shoot, then see their apprehension turn to surprise and awe as I show them the back of my camera. Yes, that is you and you look amazing. 

I decided to stop holding myself back wondering what people would think. This is what I do well and what I like. Some people may not like it, but I hope that you do.

I’m breaking out of my shell, and on a new journey to create beauty and have fun while doing it. Some are more realistic, and you’ll notice that one one I basically said “screw reality”. Will I do this in every shoot? Probably not, but like I said, I’m breaking out of my shell and trying new things and techniques.

By the way, I’m still accepting princesses! I have a Snow White and a Sleeping Beauty, but hit me up with your princess and why you want to be her 🙂
