Feels Like Summer

When you're not quite ready to let go of summer, you do summer themed shoots to keep the spirit of all things happy alive. I was so excited to work with such talented awesome babes on this shoot!

Orange You Glad?

As summer is coming to an end I'm finding myself in that awkward, can't decide how I actually feel phase. You know mourning summer but kinda can't wait for sweaters and all things pumpkin spice? My heart is kinda breakin' a little bit though because Jordan and I are going to be gone ALL of October... yes literally ALL of October and while I am so excited about the places we are traveling to for work I can't help but be a little sad I'm missing my favorite time of year at home. Luckily we get home two days before Halloween (our absolute favorite holiday) so we will get a little taste of fall before we head out to Australia + New Zealand! Guess I can't really complain ;P

Flower Shop Gang

Anytime you shoot with Kortni Jeane you know you are in for a good time + the cutest suits! What's better than hanging out in a flower shop with a bunch of babes? Until we accidentally crashed a wedding reception.. yeeeah that happened.. WHOOPS! haha we had to walk through the reception part of the garden in order to get to the bathrooms to change hahaha luckily by the time the reception officially started we were able to wrap up our shoot but man those early comers had some funny entertainment watching us all try to cover up as we sheepishly raced through to get to the bathrooms. At least it makes for a good story, eh?

How To Work With Wind When Modeling

Clothing: Robbie & Co

Photographer: Alysha Caufman

You would never guess by looking at these photos that this entire shoot it felt like we were trapped inside a wind tunnel! So how did we pull it off? Well one thing I've learned from experience with modeling it to not let different situations and circumstances that might be out of your comfort zone intimidate or frustrate you. For this shoot we tried to find as much shelter from the buildings as possible and waiting for little breaks in the gusts but sometimes you just gotta go with it! Shooting in wind can be a nightmare but it can also be dreamy, especially with clothes/hair that allow for the wind to give it some good movement. So rather than getting frustrated that your hair feels like it is out of control and the dress in blowing up in between your legs making it look like you have a wedgie (yes this has happened more times than I care to admit) use the wind to your advantage! If the wind is blowing your hair back making it look like you don't have hair at all just rotate a bit! Change your angle so the wind is carrying your hair making you look like you're floating down straight from heaven. Same goes for clothing if the wind is pushing the clothes straight into your body rotate so that it is showing off movement in the clothing. Seems like pretty simple stuff right? Easier said then done when you've got wind in your face but next time you find yourself in this situation take a deep breath and think all the variables for each shot and each outfit! Feel free to communicate with the photographer let them know to be your eyes! 

Hopefully this will help ya not be intimidated by wind and maybe even excited to shoot in it!!

MONA

This shoot was all kinds of amazing, I was super excited to work with Travis on a styled collaborative shoot, sheerrose made a beautiful floral piece, and Travis' wife (who is an amazing artist) painted this super cute floral design for Travis to shoot through that turned out SO amazing! It always makes me so happy to see other people's talents and to see how much each piece changes and influences a shoot! This one was super refreshing for me, and I couldnt not be more happy with how it all came together!

you & me babe.

Sometimes I think I take for granted how lucky I am that I get to spend as much time with my husband as I do. Early on in our marriage we both stopped going to school and became somewhat self employed. We were able to be together nearly 24/7 and were quite honestly glued at the hip. As life gets busier, we don't have that luxury (at least to the extent we used to) summer is a super busy time for us but for Jord especially, so I try to soak up every single second I can with him. Today is one of those "I miss my husband days" so I figured I'd share these sweet photos Chantel Marie snagged of us after a shoot she and I had, they make my heart so happy! 

Lake Atitlan Guatemala | KAITLYNOELLE

Part 2 of our Guatemala Trip in Lake Atitlan! Though our time here was pretty short we enjoyed every second! We stayed at the craziest airbnb RIGHT on the lake with our own private little dock! It was like heaven on earth! We spent the day shooting from sunrise till sunset! It was so much fun! I kept confusing the lake for ocean because it was SO HUGEEEE and looked like the ocean, so turquoise and clear as clear can be. If you're ever in Guatemala you HAVE to visit Lake Atitlan! 

Malibu Swim Shoot | Piper & Scoot

We got to trade in snowy & freezing cold for sunny & warm at the beach for a day to shoot the new Piper & Scoot swim collection! Nothing makes me happier than sunshine, beaches, and swimming suits so I was in absolute heaven, not to mention I got to hangout my some of my favorite gals for a whole day while we made some swim magic happen! This shoot made me feel so grateful that I get to do what I absolutely love the most everyday! Chase your dreams people! And that I get to do it with such amazing people! I made a little vlog to document the day! Enjoy!

You can find all these cute swimming suits at Piper & Scoot

All That Glitters

All that glitters ain't gold, but this shoot was.

Creative collaborative shoots are SO necessary for me to keep me excited and growing in what I do. I love working with other creative's are coming up with a concept and vision for the shoot and watching it come to life! This is to date one of my all time favorite shoots and I got to work with two of my favorite ladies on it Cherisa the makeup artist is SO talented at what she does and every time I get up from her chair I feel so beautiful, in this case beautiful and kinda dope all at the same time ;) and the photographer... OH MY GAWWWSH! I loveeeed working with Alyssa some of my favorite shots of myself have come from this shoot with her. Enjoy!

Gearing up for Valentine's Day over here! All things pink & pretty while refraining from eating as many sweets as I want to cause New Years resolutions aaaaaand swim shoots coming up. I'm mostly excited for Valentine's Day to hurry up and get here because that means Jordan & I will be leaving the cold and heading down to Guatemala! In the mean time have a Valentine love affair with all of these amazing clothes! (insert heart eye emoji)

Every winter I say I will never do winter shoots again, and every winter here I am in the heart of it freezing my buns off yet somehow still loving it.  

Also this place, Pierpoint Avenue in SLC, I never knew existed somehow and then I had 3 shoots here in ONE week. It is the cuuuutest little photo spot with lots of diversity if you're ever looking for a new spot to try out!

Brickyard Buffalo // Lorena Rosser

I've been absolutely terrible at blogging lately, my goal is to start posting more photo shoot photos on here! I shoot with different companies multiple times a week and want to start sharing the images because this is my work & this is what I do!! I love modeling and I love being in front of the camera in the least vain way possible hahaha! I love meeting and working with new people almost daily, it definitely keeps things exciting! Each company and photographer I work with has a different vibe and style they are going for and ever single shoot is different. This shoot is for one of the awesome companies I get to work with on a regular basis Brickyard Buffalo with Lorena Rosser behind the camera, check them both out!!

Wanderlust | BTS Modeling

I've had so many people ask me about modeling, how I got started, how I land jobs, what shoots look like, etc. So I decided to bring you guys along with me on a shoot so you can see first hand what they are like! Hope you enjoy! xo

#CAMPFOSSIL

Let's go camping! Roasting mallows on the stove top, tents in the living room made out of blankets, ghost stories by the fireplace, sleeping bag snuggles & pancakes for breakfast. That's my kind of camping.

This shoot was magic, but what you don't see is that it was so frizzin' cold, my limbs were so numb I had to have one of the assistants help me get dressed & undressed (sorry Laurel) haha our car also got stuck in the sand & I woke up the next morning feeling like I'd been hit by a truck. Cold number 3 this winter. We always joke after shoots like this that we all really would sacrifice ourselves for Piper & Scoot cause we love what we do & who we work with so much!
