Peek of the Week // Cedar City Portraiture

I have too many amazing clients and therefore too many amazing images to share, so I’m just calling this one a few of my favorite things.

 This beautiful girl caught me just days before the little one arrived. Congratulations, Amy!

She had a sneak peek already, but there is this little square of light in the new studio that I just had to play in.

The Artful Orchestra

ARTFUL-4137b

Every once in a while, we are given incredible opportunities. This opportunity was a lot of work, but I didn’t want it to end! How fortunate am I to have been able to spend one-on-one time with each of these beautiful one-of-a-kind works of art, created by artists from all over the world for the Artful Orchestra - a charitable art auction for music. I  cherished every minute of the project and I would like to encourage all of you to visit the website. At the very least, browse through the images of the captivating instruments, but be sure to take the time to read about and get to know each fascinating artist and the story of their particular instrument.

As part of this project, we also took individual portraits of the students. Here’s a pullback shot of my awesome assistant, Bri.

I’m hoping we can post all of our favorites after they’ve been debuted at the parent-night!

But first, click and admire!

Heidi & Lily // Double Makeover Mother-Daughter Session

DUNN-DM-3016bw

Heidi warned me that Lily might not talk much and not to be offended. And at first, she was pretty quiet. Except in the car between locations – according to Heidi, Lily was talking non-stop. In a British accent! She never did share her brilliant accent with me, but Lily must have known how much I adored her because it didn’t take long for her to warm up & talk to me! She reminds me of my little 4 year old girl – they’re both the youngest of four and the only girl in a land full of brothers. Kierstyn won’t talk to anyone at first, either! I hope she develops a British accent one day.

I have to thank Heidi – she saved me from disaster as I backed a truck up and almost hit a utility box. She had my back!

When Heidi and Lily arrived, they went right into the hair and makeup room to get all dolled up. That was the beginning of our amazing mother-daughter journey. They shared so many beautiful moments together, one of which is this black and white image captured as we were winding the session down.

They way they laugh together is contagious. It always takes me a few tries to get a good jumping shot. “It’s just not coming together” was Lily’s input on the experience. When that girl talks, she’s hilarious! She had me doubled over!

Those golden locks and luscious waves atop beautiful faces are just the icing on the cake. Heidi and Lily are one-of-a-kind and full of kindness, love and generosity. It was my pleasure to work with these two – they were up for ANYTHING! Hiking in flip-flops, standing barefoot in the frozen sand, sitting in the midst of hay, climbing towers – it was an adventure I won’t soon forget and I hope they’ll treasure for the rest of their lives.

The Horton Family // Southern Utah Family Portraits

Our “open” and “closed” sign reads, “Gone Shootin’ ” and “Come in, get shot”

This family just about made that a literal statement! They have an amazing story to share – having overcome major illnesses over the past few years – they are thriving and truly the sweetest family. We had a blast together! I did learn something very important, too. (I’m clearly NOT a gun owner) When posing with guns, never the barrel in the dirt. Probably common sense, but I never claimed to have much of that!

Watch and enjoy! The Horton Family!
