Liz Graduation: Preview

Portrait innovation: no faces!

Just kidding. Liz is a lovely person who has just gotten her Master's Degree
as a Nurse Practitioner. Here are a few photographs from the celebration.

Lightening Your Night

Sometimes instead of sleeping I listen to the siren call of the storm. We had lightening for three nights in a row. I photographed from 3:30-7am one night and got a strike almost every shot. Catching up on sleep? Non-check.

Blogger Social: Fly Fishing on the River

It was a beautiful day in Cache Valley photographing these ladies learning how to fish on the river. It was also one of the scarier shoots (for my camera gear) I've had in a while. Only the girls in the photos got to wear waders and boots. See the photo where they are crossing a pond with their arms outstretched? The water hit me mid-thigh. I hiked up my pants, took off my shoes, secured my equipment and wobbled carefully over the super slick stones. I knew if I stepped on one rock wrong, or hit a slimy patch my camera and I would be gonners. I hiked it through the beyond-my-head-tall grass, dirt, rocks, mud and freezing cold water in bare feet. So basically I had a great time and will do whatever I need to to get the photo.
