Rios Family

The Month of May was a special time in the church for many families. I had the chance to photograph the Rios Family. They were so lovely. Gorgeous husband and wife couple with three darling little girls. I photographed their family session and then also photographed their eldest daughter’s communion portraits. This was truly a joy to capture them being themselves. Happy and so in love with each other. I’m happy to share some of my favourites from each session.

 

Twyla Jones May Feature- Adventurous Portraits of Children

DSC_7857-2.jpg

You guys you have to check out this May feature on Twyla Jones's website! She curated a really beautiful gallery of images and are featured HERE. She is so amazing at her craft and really knows how to beautifully display photography. This image was taken at the Unraveled Retreat in Utah during Twyla's class. As Twyla was giving instruction, little Sage ran across the field and stumbled on a skeleton of what looked to be a cow. She was so excited about her discovery, she scooped some of the bones up and ran back to show her Mother. In that moment, Twyla and I looked at each other gaped at the sight. Glad I had my camera handy to catch this photo too. Truly and unforgettable day and always honored to be recognized by her. 

LooksLikeFilm May Feature Part 2

LooksLikeFilm is a really rad community of photographers who share and inspire each other thru their art; photography. I have met and have been introduced to so many incredible artists in that platform. To be featured a 2nd time in May is an a HUGE honor for me. There was a time when I struggled with confidence in my photography. I realized that shooting for light first and subject second was key to killer shots. Finally, the light bulb turned on in my head. This photo was taken at the Unraveled Retreat in Utah. Unforgettable day with really rad people. But I'll save that for another blog post XO
