Little Cottonwood Canyon 10-8-11

I finally pulled out my camera this season to capture the beauty of the Fall and Winter combined! We just started Fall a couple of weeks ago, and then it decided to snow! It didn't snow here in the valley--but the mountains look great all dressed in white! We were able to go for a hike up Little Cottonwood Canyon this last weekend and enjoyed the crisp air and beautiful fall leaves mixed with the white of snow! This first one was taken on our drive up past Alta ski resort--the snow was much thicker there!
The rest are from our hike in Little Cottonwood Canyon--or also known as the site where the granite was excavated (is that the right word?) for the Salt Lake Temple. I can't imagine being there then and seeing the towering granite mountains (especially in the cold winter!!)
I love the contrast between the pretty fall colors and the white snow--it looks so peaceful laying there.

Family Photos-July 2011

I had the opportunity to photograph a great family at the beginning of July! The kids were warm and tired, but they still pulled out their smiles!

Beautiful Baby L

I've had quite the weekend! 2 photo shoots, one more to go this week and a few more to post! I just wanted to post a few of Saturday's photo shoot with Baby L and her cute parents! Once she got comfortable, she was so peaceful! I loved the cute outfits!





I'll post more later when I get some in b&w as well!

It's a bird, it's a plane...

My husband and I love the movie Up and enjoyed watching the floating lanterns in Tangled, so it comes as no surprise that when we heard there would be hot air balloons... we had to go and check them out!


I didn't realize how quickly the balloons could fill with air! As soon as the balloon had filled, they lit the fire and lifted it  off the ground! The whole process took maybe 15 minutes!



This pig had a little fire under his belly! (haha) He was the first to get into the air!


It's amazing to me that a little fire can keep an entire balloon, a basket, and at least 3 people high in the air! I'm still not sure if I'd like to brave a basket ride... but it would be fun!



As the sun finally peaked from behind the mountains, it lit up the sky and the balloons! It turned out to be a beautiful day!





Up, Up, and Away!

Wedded Bliss

I had a great time at a friend's wedding this past weekend (for more of the story, see my private blog). Although I wasn't the official photographer, I was still able to capture a few moments from the sidelines!
