Lavender Shoot

{Pics I took on our picnic today}

I am so excited for this shoot I cant even tell you.
I just took my mother in law on a picnic for her
birthday in the fields and...oh my word.
It is so gorgeous, I couldn't stop taking pictures.
You guys will love it.
So here is the plan.....

-Everybody meet at my house @ 6pm
Monday evening, sun sets around
8:30 so we want plenty of time to
get there and shoot in good light
(for those of you that cant come till
later I will post directions at the end
of the post so you can meet us there)
-Bring a couple snazzy outfits, but at
least one all black dress or outfit
(group shot!)
if you dont mind I thought we could mix
and match our clothes for different looks
-Come with your hair done, but I will have
brushes, hairspray, bobby pins, etc
for some do's on the spot
-Come with your make-up done but do
bring your make-up bag with you
(I will bring some of my fancier
make up so we can add to and get
creative with your already gorgeous
-Im going to try to bring both of my
fancy chairs to pose with
-Bring some treats or drinks if you like
-Come ready to sass it up, lets not be
timid for the camera girls

I posted some pictures from my most recent fashion shoot
that is part of a vintage project that Im
doing for my grandmother.
Hope they inspire you and get you
stoked for our

-Go south on I-15 for 45 min from lehi
1 hour or so from SLC
-Get off on exit 242 South Sanaquin
-Turn left at the first stop sign
-go south on that frontage road for about 6 miles
-you will see the fields a few miles out
-Follow the signs to the visitor center and then
give me a call so I can direct you to our location

Fashion Shoot Anyone?

A couple of gals thought that it would be fun to post
highlights on each one of us so we can get to know
each other better. The post would include your
answers to a fun little interview questionnaire and
a photograph. I thought that it would be fun to
collect lovely pictures of all of you in a couple
CC fashion shoots, photographed by me.
I came up with two particular shoots that you could
sign up for one or the other...or even both. Im open to
suggestions so let them flow if you have any. The
shoots will both be in that golden light that occurs
around sunset (the warmer tones make your skin look
great as well as create a great hair light that adds a glow)
I could bring all my gear reflectors, lights, and assistant
(Reece). We can go all out with make-up and hair as
well as multiple outfits and styles. (if you havent noticed
I love organized shoots, fashion shoots are the best)
Here are the options so far....

Option #1: To take place July 10th or 11th (late notice
I know Im going to call the location to see about some
more options, but all that great purple might get
harvested pretty soon)

With a chair that looks a lot
like this


this chair that I just got (will
look so hot with red lipstick)

Placed in the middle of this (in lighting
that will look a lot like this)
Mona UT, Young Living Farms
(south of spanish fork)

Option #2: Don't have a specific date for this one,
but I was thinking maybe the next week on the 17th?

This couch

possibly in the fields around my house
for this kind of look or maybe in front
of an architectural background?

but the lighting will look like this
(mixed, flash and daylight underexposed)

What do you gals think? Comment about
which option sounds best for you to sign up.

July Concert Tickets

Hey Girls its time to get your tickets they are $25 each
you can purchase them here. Select general admission
(its the cheapest, and is a great option for buying our
tickets separately without having to worry if we are
going to sit next to each other or not.... cause we will
no matter what)

So get excited and mark those calenders....

Friday July 31st

Gate opens at 5:30, a carpool for whoever wants to
will leave Bethany's house around 4:30 or 5. Bring
some treats, blankets, and a camp chair if you can.
Location: Deer Valley Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater.
Directions: here

Comment if you have any suggestions or questions.
Im looking forward to spending yet another wonderful
evening with you all.

June CC Meeting = Time of Yer Lives

Thanks Angie for your splendid traditional "Bubble and Squeak"
breakfast and the extremely informative yet humorous
slide show. We all arrived at the festival physically and
mentally fed. The festival was so much fun, thanks to all that
made it out even if it was for a little bit. Good times were
had by all. Hope to see you all again next month.
