I can’t remember when I first heard about Stomping Ground, but the SECOND I did, I knew I wanted them to be our school’s photographer. My dream finally came true. I was the parent volunteer on hand to watch every student get their photo taken a few weeks ago. It was pretty fun to watch all the stages of growing up and the range of emotion about getting one’s photo taken….
I ended up with two of the sweetest frames….and my husband made me blush when he said about this one: “I like this because it shows 3 girls in very awkward stages, and who they can grow up to be”. Aw. I ordered this one and a second of just the 3 of them, with 3 genuine smiles. The girls smile their truest smiles when they are acting as Big Sis to Pickle.
Stomping Ground WILL travel, so run, don’t walk, to your next PTA meeting and hire them! Check out their awesome work.
Her hair in the tub is still pretty killer.
This Christmas we had a Photo Bomb Challenge. As a result, we had a lot of re-dos. “Stop Photo-Bombing!” “Don’t Bomb my photo!” We even had some Video Bombing (see :53). Linz! Great Job!
Dad photo bombed a lot, I have a feeling, NEVER on purpose. See above.
Congratulations to the bombers. Lolly did the best job. I got a pretty good one, there may have been a boob involved. (Hey! I’m still nursing!)
My sister-in-law is a photographer! She recently got a new fancy camera and has been practicing on some of us.
Here she is in action:
The sylist and art director on set:
I asked her to take a few other photos of P and her future husband:
Last week I asked her to take a few snaps of me because my agent asked for some new photos. I am not quite ready to do a full photoshoot since I have some pounds to go, but Jenn took a few for me to tide her over.
If you live in Utah and are interested in getting snapped yourself, leave a comment and I will get you in touch! She’s the best!
Her hair in the water is even more epic.
Sometimes she wakes up with the craziest hair.
Lolly had an audition for Sesame Street the other day, so I threw together a headshot for her in all of 5 minutes. Her hair could use some serious help, but since I took the photos a few hours before the audition, you can’t argue that she didn’t look like her picture!

I have had some events on my calendar for a while, and I have been full of anticipation for said events to help me get through the last leg of pregnancy…
Last week I took my pregnancy portraits with Wendy of Blue Lily.
I can’t remember where the idea came from, but MONTHS ago I decided the theme of the shoot would be: Twiggy gets knocked up.
I gathered images from the interwebs for inspiration:
Then I did some shopping on etsy and got those pieces altered to fit my pregnant non-twiggyish figure. I did some makeup practice and then bought the items that I needed to make it even better (thank you mac, you always come through).
Whoo! Those lashes…I was lucky to get it right without REALLY practicing it again before the shoot date.
I rode the subway with my first complete look on and totally caught this guy taking a picture of me. A man of my own heart. I totally would have taken my picture too. I looked ridiculous…don’t forget I had a HUGE belly to go with the face and the outfit. awesome.
I scouted locations through an architecture book I borrowed from a friend and found this AWESOME building which unfortunately was shrouded with scaffolding when we arrived! GRRRRR….
But Wendy spied some benches like those around the corner so we did some shots there and at Southstreet Seaport. We also found a secluded little courtyard way downtown-ideal for privacy while shooting and CHANGING on the streets of NYC!
We ended the shoot at the Trump Building because that crazy globe was built in the 60′s! I learned a lot about the buildings in NYC while looking through that book. Jen helped me with my jewelry for that look–love how the earrings match the globe!
We had so much fun–the weather was PERFECTION and I even ran into to two different friends while shooting. Bizarre. I cannot wait to see the finished result.
