South Family

The South family have been good friends of ours for a long time now and I've been taking photos for them since Logan was just a tiny newborn. Now Little Logan is a busy two year old! I had fun chasing him around our little mountain town of Pine Valley with my camera trying to get his attention.
Here's my favorites from their family session.

DIY flower crown


 
I've been asked how I make my flower crowns for sessions so I put together a little "how to" for you! I love the added texture and pop they add to photos, you can also wear them to parties or events!
 
 
 
My little helper loved watching me put this together.




All you need for materials are
 
Scissers
Green florist wire
Rope wire to match hair color
Flowers/greenery
 


 
 
Start by cutting the rope wire and measure it around the head to fit, start twisting to make it stay.
 


 
 
Grab the green florist wire and cut a bunch of pieces approximately 10 inches in length.
 



 
 
Carefully poke the wire through the flower through the base.
 
 



place the flower on the rope wire where desired and begin wrapping the florist wire around the rope wire until its secure.
 
 






Continue wrapping flowers and greenery around, be extra careful with succulents, they are very fragile!
 
 



 
 
Once you have as many or as little flowers that you desire around the rope wire, trim any excess pieces that might be sticking out. That's it! Happy flower crown making.

Heather - Portrait Session

Let me tell you bout my best friend! Kindhearted, gentle, yet strong, graceful, genuine, thoughtful are just some of the words that describe Heather. God blessed me with not only an awesome big sis but one of my very best friends.
I had a blast taking these photos of her and even got to use my love of flowers and made her flower crown! Sidenote: if you or anyone you know is an awesomely talented florist and would like to collaborate with me, shoot me an email!!
Back to Heather, I'm so proud of her. She has overcome so many obstacles in her life and comes out stronger and more beautiful than ever! She wanted to have these photos done all for HER, to celebrate the beautiful woman, wife and mother that God made her. I love you so much!

David & Brittany-Trash the dress/Anniversary session

When my sister in law asked me to take trash the dress photos out at our summer family vacation destination on the River in Yuma, I got giddy with excitement! We had fun planning this together and I got to make the flower crown for her to wear! David and Brittany are not only family but some of our closest friends and have given us some valuable advice from a marriage and child raising standpoint. This year they celebrated 4 years of marriage and continue to have a strong friendship which is where their relationship was established. Love you guys and are so happy we get to do life with you.
