Last weekend I had the honor and privilege of meeting Angie Monson of Simplicity Photography in Salt Lake City, UT.  She is my inspiration, my hero, and I am completely in awe of her work.  I could honestly spend hours looking at her breathtakingly stunning images ALL DAY.  No joke.  Seriously, check it out for yourself and you will understand what I’m talking about. 

So you can imagine my excitement to have my family’s portraits taken by Angie…let’s just say, I was beside myself!  You should have seen me, I was a total mess getting ready for the session – so nervous and anxious…it was raining (like lightning and thundering!) outside…the kids were super crazy with excitement and COULD NOT SIT STILL for a second!…each of them cried at some point in the session….And in the midst of all that, Angie thankfully calmed my nerves, had a blast with the kids and shot some incredible images that I absolutely love and adore and will absolutely treasure for the rest of my life.

Without her permission, I can’t post our family’s sneak peeks to my blog, but you can go here to see for yourself!


This sweet family was a joy to photograph!  Her boys were so cute, I couldn’t help but smile myself!  Mom and I go way back…I’ve known her since H.S. and as you can see she’s definitely kept her “babe-ish” looks, she looks exactly the same!  It was my privilege to spend the day with you guys and I can’t wait to show you the rest of your session…but for now, here’s a few quick sneak peeks~

I’ll be “unplugged” for the next few days, taking a break to spend some wonderful time with my wonderful family.  I’ll catch you on the flipside!

His Royal Airness.

Thought I’d share just a few more from this session, I couldn’t help myself.  He is absolutely precious!  Is it bad if  I leave every newborn session thinking, “That was my most favorite newborn session EVER!”??

And I know you were probably wondering where the title of this post came from.  In the famous words of my rockstar teacher Jen Hillenga at Texas School, “Wait for it, wait for it….”

Now off to work on my son’s end of year slideshow.  I think there’s only a couple thousand images to go through!  Wish me luck, I’m gonna need it!

I’m back…

Why is it that you always need another vacation once you return from vacation to recover?  I’m thinking it was probably my push to get everything done before I left (staying up til 3am on multiple nights) that started tiring me out on Day 2 of Texas School…and then by the time I got home from Dallas, I was pooped!  Well, I’m trying my best to ramp up my energy level and stay caught up (Well, almost caught up!).  Still editing this session (there are so many that I love!) and as I was zoomed in real close and BIG on my 24″ monitor, I couldn’t take my eyes off of it.  I felt compelled to share the up close version of it with you to demonstrate how it makes such a BIGger statement up close and personal.
