the Ott Attempt...

On Saturday evening, after my Halloween photo shoot, I was scheduled to take the Ott Family photo. Liz happens to be an old childhood friend. We went to Elementary, Junior High, and High School together, but have lost touch the past few years. How excited I was when she called to set up her session. I hadn't even seen or met her boys and they were darling!

Liz wanted to get some great shots out by the Great Salt Lake. As I was driving out West toward the lake, the sky in the East was beautiful and clear and was creating a beautiful light out West where dark skies loomed ahead. I was hopeful that the rain would hold for at least 30 minutes so we could get in some good shots. Instead of 30 minutes, we got 2. Before we even started, the rain started coming. It was windy and icy, not a good combination for two young boys. We decided it would be better to reschedule....Here are a few of the pictures I took.


This is the picture I took when I first arrived at the Lake (looking out toward Antelope Island) while I was waiting for the Ott's to arrive. Beautiful, isn't it?

I stopped by your booth at the Avenues Street Fair last month and walked away feeling... totally intimidated, to be honest! Your photos are absolutely gorgeous. I want to be a wedding/family/etc. photographer one day, and your style is exactly the style I want to have. I've got a long way to go! Anyway, just wanted to give you a shout out and let you know I admire you.

Thanks Annie, I really appreciate your compliments. I checked out your blog and I don't think you have a long way to go. Keep taking pictures and keep finding ways to get inspired! You'll get there before you know it.
