Styled Shoot -- Part 3 of 4 {Allie}

I don't think anyone can help but love Allie. She was such a dream to work with, and I left the shoot [not so secretly] wishing I was her best friend. Her amazing, talented husband did her hair -- it's not naturally curly, but doesn't she look stunning? I just love, love, love her. 

Hair: Mike Kowallis and Mallory Villagomez
Makeup: Nateal Nielsen Ernst

 If I did that ^ with my feet for an entire shoot like she did, I'm pretty sure I'd have foot cramps for a week. I am not what someone may call delicate...

I had such a hard time narrowing these photos down for my favorites. Tell me -- which one(s) is/are your favorite?

Mindi - Maternity Shoot

Meet Mindi -- she is my beautiful cousin! I was lucky enough to be able to take Mindi's belly pictures this past weekend. She is 32 weeks, but oh so teeny! Have you ever seen a more beautiful woman, though? She is just as beautiful inside! I seriously love her! We had such a great time at the shoot, I'm so grateful I got to spend time with her again!!!

Mindi totally rocks the serious look! Gorgeous!!!!

Styled Shoot -- Part Two of Four {Christina}

It's time for another model from my styled shoot in June! This talented beauty not only models professionally, but makes gorgeous cakes and cupcakes as well! {check her out at Once Upon a Cake Co.} As I mentioned before, and I'll mention again -- I had so much fun doing this! I shot Christina last out of the four models, and with the sun low in the horizon, I was able to get some super dreamy shots!

I was with the very last group to shoot with Christina, and she was letting her hair down. Selfie anyone?

Such a versatile model! She can rock the hardcore look and then in the next instant pull out this mega-watt smile:

 I know you want more! So go over to Frances Tobler's website for her take on Christina!!!

Styled Shoot -- Part One of Four- {Chelyse}

Earlier in June, my good friend Whitney invited me to hang out with a bunch of stellar photographers at a styled shoot. Courtney Bowlden and Kelli West put their creative minds to the test and set everything up, found the models, everything! Seriously, so much work went into this! The detail and time spent was amazing! I had such a wonderful time, and can't wait to do it again.

Relik Salon  in American Fork put their skilled team to work with hair and makeup and really went above and beyond on all the models! This beautiful girl is Chelyse Klepper. 

Isn't she beautiful? In my next life I am going to have skin like hers.
