Summer Time

It seems that I only get around to updating my blog every 2-3 months. I hope to make more time in the coming months to write more. This spring and summer have been really busy and really great. I've had the opportunity to be apart of some really amazing shoots and I'm really excited about some new work that I have done. Some highlights include a bridal shoot out on Antelope Island that I did in mid-June. Our weather had not yet gotten too hot so the heat and bugs were manageable (with a lot of bug spray on). We set out in the late afternoon and stayed till sunset. We explored 3 different locations on the island and had a great time. Another recent shoot was a bridal that I did in my studio. This time of year, I don't get into the studio much, so I must admit I was feeling a little rusty creatively. But due to some inspiration found in my killer photography book collection as well as some help from friend and fellow photographer, Leane Jensen, we embarked on creating a more dark and grungy bridal session for this client. We had fun during the shoot and I was pleased with the images we created. One of the images are pictured above.

In other news, I'm happy to announce that Photoumbra Studios is taking on a part time staff person. I look forward to formally introducing her in another post.
