And they lived…. [midway utah photographer]

April 29, 2010

 

Once upon a time I thought I could run this life of mine without truly being myself. It seemed to be working… until I began evaluating.  AND, because answers don’t often come until one has been faced with something that awakens them to true reality…right at the very moment they are feeling, it hasn’t been until lately that answers have come.  I’ve tried being more “professional”, tried worrying less, tried being witty and funny, and tried my darndest to be consistent with all these…etc.  I now realize the only thing I do well at is, simply, being myself. For good or bad, being myself is all I know. AND, for that matter, being who I am in the moment I am in is all that really makes sense. OH…the ramblings.  Life is too short…it moves too fast.  Thus the title, AND they LIVED… it won’t always be “happily ever after”…the more I push for this, the less I can truly live in the now and learn the vital lessons that come with doing so. My NEW, new years goal…and the simple motto for my new found hope for life is simply this…And she lived.

NOW, speaking of living, Miss Kimberlee and Forest are amazing at it. They are fun, witty, openly enjoy eachother, watch out for one another, and truly seem to care deeply for the other. I always enjoy getting to know my wedding clients. I love watching how they interact, getting to know their styles…what their life is like. These two have alot of living ahead of them, and I’m thrilled to be able to capture just a snap of their lives together.

A bit of a softer side of Sears Image. NOTE: still cheezy…still embarrass myself with these amazing young couples I shoot often with my “older than that Momma antics”…

Yes, I know the left one isn’t sharpened right for the web…I’m being lazy and am not going to fix it right now. The “real” one looks just peachy…

A bit of OCF…for a more vibrant edgy feel, without taking away from their natural beauty. Oohhh…you are both darn good looking peoplesssss…

Some of my mostest…favoritestest…images in the whole entire world are the candid moments inbetween shots, if you will, that I later can take and turn into a portrait. There is something so perfect about these moments to me….I adore the sweet looks I can catch when people don’ t think I’m snapping, the feel, the absolute perfection of a glance, a touch…LOVE.

Get your “vintage on”… These sequence of shots was so fun and I can’t wait to show them all together. LOVE the sun peaking around the corner, love the mood, love the bokeh, love love love! You guys rocked these shots…

Fierce, my friends…fierce…

Love Love….

P.S.

Its 11:30 pm, my little man is sitting by my side because he can’t fall asleep…trying to make me guess what he got me for Mother’s Day. He says it starts with a P….so far I have guessed Pcard, Pvase, Pflower, Ppppppppp. Its making him laugh…love his laugh.  What would we ever do without humor with a touch of sarcasm in our home?  Those who know us personally know what I’m talking about. Regardless, someday, someone will sweep him off his feet. Someday I could be taking his engagements portraits. Oh my…not ready to talk about that one yet. For future reference to his “someday sweetheart”…he just told me that something is “stuck in his left nostril”…and that its been there since he’s been in preschool. Hmmm… Now, I must sleep.
