Pretty Princess

May 31st, 2011

I can admit it, my favorite images have fairytale themes in them. I grew up loving princesses in huge ballgowns and dragons that captured them but when all seemed lost the handsome prince saved her and carried her off into a distant land with a gleaming white castle, Happily Ever After. The only 3 words that rival my all time favorite 3 words. Sometimes I get these images in my head and they swim there, keeping me up at night, until I get them planned out and photographed. So when I had the idea of a dark princess I knew the perfect girl for it. Tyler. She claims that she hates having her picture taken but how can she hate it when the camera loves HER so much?!? ;P She was a natural and even while playing the damsel in distress she ended up being my knight in shining amour…chasing a snake away from me!! And so she gets my 3 favorite words, I LOVE YOU!!

I always know I’ve had a great session when I have the hardest time narrowing it down to my four favorite pictures to post up on the blog for the sneak peek! I’ve been going back and forth on 7 and so you get 5! :D

I asked her to meet me in a cemetery. No, no not so that we could take pictures in there but so she could follow me up to our location.  I should’ve specified where we were meeting because I ended up making her wait almost 10 minutes because she was in the cemetery and I was outside! But when I had the brilliant idea of calling her we got it worked out and she was a doll about the whole thing. She met me with a bright smile on her face and I loved her from there!

Caitlin reminds me so much of Carrie Underwood, she has that sweet personality, the same stunning smile and that hair? Yeah, I can admit I’m jealous of it. :)  But once she got into her prom dress…total Vogue! I had a ton of fun with her and her mom and sister, through all the burrs that got all over us to me almost falling in the river. They are a great bunch!

Caitlin, good luck with school! I can absolutely see you being an amazing Special Needs Teacher!! You’re a beauty and so great to work with. I had an absolutely wonderful time with you! :)

And one with her super cute niece that tagged along! :)

I SO behind on posting on here but I have a new resolve that I’ll be caught up totally with all my blog post, edits and CDs sent out within the next 2 weeks!  Ah, the joys of cramming in all my clients that had booked me before my knee surgery! And as Cache Valley people know…we’re on a deadline because ya never know when the snow will hit us! :D Even though she’s a more recent session I’m in the middle of editing her session and had to post these!

Kirsten is one the cutest seniors ever! The fact that she’s a LHS Grizzly just sweetens the deal (I gotta show some love for my former high school! haha) She was up for everything I mentioned and let’s just say I was very relieved that she doesn’t have a fear of balloons. :) Not only is she stunning but she’s a sweet girl too.

When I booked her I asked my brother, who is in the same grade at their school together, about her and he said that everyone at school likes her because she’s nice to everyone. I just love that about her and I think it makes her an even more beautiful young lady! Plus she’s a changing pro, how many girls do you know that can pull off changing into TWO formal dresses in their car?

Kirsten, I just know that you’re going to have great things happen for you! Good luck with Cosmetology School, with your cute personality you’re going to have a huge clientele. You are an absolute doll and I’m already looking forward to our next shoot together!
