amelia lyon

Amelia Lyon is one of my favorite photographers, looking at her blog is such a feast for the eyes! You have to go to her blog and check out her latest wedding, it is simply spectacular and possibly one of my favorite shoots I have ever seen her post. Check out Danah + Ahmad Married. I hope one day not long from now I will be able to have her shoot my little family!

penelope & sophia

I had the pleasure of photographing these two little beauties! Aren't they just adorable!

meet josy

Meet my cousins newest addition to their family, Josette Elizabeth Mariana Gary! Isn't she darling! We can't wait to meet her in person, but for now we will have to get our fix by looking at great posts like this one!

birth story

I am sure that many of you are aware of the amazing work that Mr. Johnathan Canlas does. My new favorite service that he offers is shooting your birth story. Now, I know what you are thinking, weird having a photographer in the room with you. Well, since I am pretty sure it will be one of, if not the most defining moments of our lives I can't think of a better time to have a photographer there to capture it since I won't really be in a position to capture the moment myself (I think Mr. Reece will also be a little preoccipied.) I just think it would be so great for someone to capture not only the first few moments of your little ones life, but take in all the details as well.

You are probably also thinking- yeah nobody wants to see that much of you. Well Mr. Canlas being the uber-talented photographer that he is captures it so tastefully and beautifully that there is absolutely no ick-factor. See his beautiful birth stories, here, here & here. Trust me they are so worth looking through!

The September Issue
Which I tried to see during the film festival last January and it was sold out every night. And now of course it will not be playing in Utah, so I guess I just have to wait some more!

The Invention of Lying
Two words: Ricky Gervais. Do you really need anything more? OK I will give you two more: Tina Fey. Yeah- this one should be good!

annie leibovitz

In light of the great Miss Leibovitz's legal woes, I thought I would post a few of my favorite Annie Leibovitz images. Before I even new who she was she was making an impact on me. My mom let me get my first Vogue when I was 12 and I loved to just sit in my room and take in all the images, most of which were Annie's. I actually blame her in part for my magazine obsession, I love the images so much I couldn't throw them away. When I got married Mr. Reece made me pick my top 20 Vogue & Vanity Fairs to keep (which was a major undertaking seeing as I had a subscription every year for 10 years.) Her work is just so beautiful and complex you can stare at her photos and see something new you hadn't noticed before. I hope she gets to retain the rights to her massive body of work, either way I will continue to love her work.

california polas

I am just so sad that this film isn't being made anymore. I guess I will have to switch to the Instax. I applaud their version of the Polaroid, but why couldn't they make them square?
