Bear Lake 2010

I had the privilege this summer to go to Bear Lake on two separate occasions and do some family photo sessions for a few different families. I had never been to Bear Lake before now and had no idea what to expect. When I got there I was completely inspired by the beautiful scenery and could not believe how blue the water is! I had so much fun on both my trips up there and was able to make each trip a mini vacation that included jet skiing, boating, tanning, good food, great company and amazing weather! Just another day at the office.... :)

My first trip was at the very end of July with the Groll family. Here are some of my favorite shots from their session:
Weston, Claire, and they're ADORABLE son, Sean
My second trip was just this week on Wednesday with the Arnold/Fugal/Halasima families.

The Halasima's
Signe and her mom Kaye
I also got to take some maternity photos out there and am SO excited about these pictures. First of all, Betze is gorgeous so it's impossible to take a bad picture of her, then add that to the incredible scenery and beautiful sky we had that night and you get a perfect recipe for a great session!
I could not get over the beautiful colors in the sky that night!

Sunsets and Wildflowers

Meet Signe:

She has been my best friend for almost 27 years. She's beautiful, talented and has one of the biggest hearts of anyone I know. We've had our ups and downs, but she has stuck with me through all of it.

I found an amazing field of yellow wildflowers the other day and just HAD to shoot there! I was too anxious to wait for my next shoot, so I asked Signe if she'd be up for doing a little "modeling". Having never done anything like this before, she was a little hesitant, but excited. I wasn't sure what to expect since she hasn't ever been put on the spot quite like this before. It was one of those days where everything was perfect. The weather, (aside from some crazy wind), the lighting and the incredible sky. Signe was a natural and I had sooo much fun shooting her!
