My Photography Then & Now
Everybody starts somewhere, right? My first photo session was about 8 years ago. I did my friend's engagements. It was so much fun, I loved every minute of it. But, I didn't even own photoshop at that time. I was just in the beginning of my time at USU studying photography. My first wedding (pictured below) was soon after. I'm not ashamed of these photos, I love the growth that I can see from where I started to where I am now. I've learned so much throughout the years, and I know, even though I'm happy with where I'm at, there is still so much more to learn.
I've gained so much more knowledge, upgraded my equipment, learned how to use photoshop & lightroom and learned how to better compose my shots. I used to shoot on auto when I was outside at a wedding because I didn't know how to change my manual settings fast enough while we moved from sun to shade. Now I only shoot on manual for the best possible control and results.
Not only have I gained technical knowledge in the photography field, but I've gained experience in helping people feel and look comfortable in front of the camera. Telling people how to pose is an important aspect of the type of photography I do. Poses can make or break the image in my opinion.
I've had several returning clients through the years and I could not be more grateful for their continued support and the cheerleaders that they have been and still are for me.

One thing that hasn't changed much throughout the years is my love for what I do and for the people I constantly get to serve! It still sometimes blows my mind that this is what I get to do for my job, something that I love so much. I know not everyone is so lucky. And although I'm not paying the bills with the income I make, it brings me great joy to be able to take photos for couples and families; having the opportunity to help them create the memories that will be looked back on for generations.
