After a long hiatus…

I’ve been baking so much that I hadn’t had much time for photography–AND I’VE MISSED IT! Yesterday I photographed the missionaries and had a ball.  Got it done fast and beautifully.  This is just a sampling, but there are more to come.

Last Potato Chip Kinda Guy

  I was talking to a friend the other day. She’d just broken up with her boyfriend and was pretty broken up about it. I was trying to help her look forward to her next fella (and there will be another one) and a good quality she should look for in him. I told her that […]

My very 1st eBook

This book has been 7 years in the making.  At 1st I didn’t think I had enough time or talent but I’m glad I waited.  I was determined to do it with digitally enhanced images but I finally decided to go ahead and paint each image.  I’m glad I did. It means so much more […]


Elder Tanoai

  For the past few years I’ve been taking portraits of the missionaries serving in our area.  As they rotate in and out, I schedule shoots to make sure that I can get as many as I possibly can.  I make sure that I post them on facebook so that their families back home can […]

Not bad… for my first try!

I’m in the homestretch!

This is one of the quilts for my senior thesis project. The project is a children’s book called A Quilt for Josie Joy. It’s something that’s been jumping around in my head for years and now I am finally going to make it happen! So the project includes: The book 3 quilts to be displayed […]

A Penny for your thoughts!

I believe that this is my favorite out of the whole sha-bang!

As a gift to a neighbor, I did a photoshoot for her beautiful baby girl, Penny. Don’t you wish you lived next door to me? She was a positively delightful, little girl and was very patient even though the sun was brightly shining in her eyes most of the time. I love shooting in natural […]

My First Official Post on My First Official Blog!!!

This past weekend I had not much to do but rest and recuperate from all of the holiday cooking/eating and dodgeball! My son wanted me to do a photo shoot for him. This is the same son, by the way, that used to run from the camera every time I said, “SAY CHEESE!” I earned […]
