It’s been a while…
Yes, I need to update this with all I have been up to this past year. It’s been crazy! Last year was my busiest year ever and I have the most amazing clients to thank for that. As my work started to slow down, as it always does in January and the beginning of the new years, we learned we would be moving. I spent the next couple of months cleaning and painting and mending and packing and getting ready for that big event. Now I am cleaning and mending and painting our townhouse to get it ready to rent out. On top of that, school portraits are starting back up, as are football portraits, and it’s back to school. Just to add to my busy fall, I’ve started homeschooling two of my boys! My youngest will get to go to a private kindergarten and my oldest child, my daughter, was too excited about Jr. High to let me convince her to homeschool. She went back to school today and the boys and I got to work.
My daughter had very specific requests for back to school. The number one item was her outfit which HAD to include bell bottoms! I love this kid! Here is my styling 7th grader!
And even though we are doing home school, it’s still school, so back to school cocktail dress portraits for my boys. I’m still doing work with my Kindergartener until his school starts in two weeks so he gets to be included.
My 5th grader. He will not cut his hair.
My second grader! He refuses to have hair!
And my baby boy. Yes, it’s time for a haircut. No, I’m not cutting it too short. 🙂
I’m having my Back to School portrait event coming up on September 8th! If you know me, you know I don’t like repeating myself too often so I try to give you variety when I do my sets each year. I’m getting great feedback on this year’s set, which I just love. Here is a peek at when you ‘ll get with this year’s school portraits.

It’s also the perfect set for High School and Jr. High School kids!
For those who know me, this is completely out of character for me to photograph a graduating senior. However, this young man has a special place in my heart. I grew up next door to his mother and grandma, and then after I got married, we moved into the house again. This young man was about eight years old, and he and his family were again living with his grandparents. He was always a good kid and a lot of fun. It had literally been years when his little sister (whom I didn’t recognize at all) recognized me at the store and said that he was graduating and would be leaving on a mission next year. I gave her my card and told her to have her grandma call me because I would love to do his missionary pictures when he leaves (I don’t normally photograph people over the age of twelve, but I do enjoy photographing missionaries). Well, his grandma called and asked if I would do his senior pictures. I couldn’t say no. And oh, it was so much fun to talk, and catch up, and see how wonderful this young man is doing. He is an artist, and on the Orem High Golf team, working two jobs and is just a stellar young man. I am so glad I got to do these portraits for him.
May the joy and magic of the season fill your heart all year round.
This years school portrait theme is a fun one. Those who know me know how much I like to mix it up and I really dislike doing the same theme two years in a row.
This year I got a great backdrop from rockthedrops.com. It looks like a chalkboard! What better for school portraits than a chalkboard?!
So here is a preview of this year’s school portraits.
And with every package purchase, this awesome keepsake gift print personalized for each child.
(*This awesome print may only be available this year. I will have to decide before next years portraits if it will be offered as a gift next year, or an add on to the package purchase.)
