Antelope Island

This past week I went to Antelope Island to help my friend Tempestt. It has been a really long time since I have been there, and I was pleasantly surprised! We even saw a buffalo right on the side of the road. These images were taken with my Ansco Shur Shot

The Barber Shop

 Last weekend I was roaming SL and came across this old barber shop, which actually isn't a barber shop at all anymore. The man in the photos is Ralph, and he is an artist that has created a while new world inside of these buildings. He was nice enough to show me around and let me take as many pictures as I wanted. I was able to learn a lot, and am proud that I have actually started incorporating people into my images!

SLC Half Marathon

This morning I was able to go to the SLC Half Marathon to cheer on my sister-in-law and cousins who were running. It was so fun to be able to stand on the sidelines and takes pictures, and it also got me really excited to do our half in August (Todd and I are going to run the Logan Half again this year)

Yesterday I made these Kallitype prints from old negatives that we found in my grandparents basement. It's hard to tell from these images, but the prints turned out beautifully! I hope to be able to print all of the negatives using the kallitype process, which would give me just over 250 images. It's really great to be able to look at these photos and see who these people used to be, and wonder who they are now.

The Family Tree

Here are some photos I took for my lighting class. The jewelry used are family heirlooms, so the idea is it's a 'family tree'

The Countdown Continues

Well, as school is joyously reaching an end- yes I am counting the hours until I am finished with this semester, not that I haven't loved my class which have been great, but I just can't wait to get out of here! Todd and I leave for Europe in 3 1/2 weeks, which even as I just figured that out I am near a panic attack of excitement. There is still SOOOO much to plan and figure out, but we're both really looking forward to getting there and just doing whatever we feel like. No itineraries or schedules, just a layout of where we're going, but having no idea what we're going to do once we get there. This experience I can tell will be very different than the last time we were both in Europe (Todd serving his mission in Italy and myself having the best time on a study abroad in Italy as well ;-)) I was thinking about the great time I had last time and thought I should post some pics I took while I was there. The students I went with were amazing, and I made some really great friends because of it. I look back with a reminiscent sigh, and can't wait to see what we experience this time! Todd keeps getting mad at me because I keep talking about how much weight I'm going to gain and how I've been buying bigger clothes to compensate! Oh well, it's all worth it, right?

Other Projects

I realized that all I post on here is photography, but I am also a designer. I have a great job where I get to design things everyday, and here are a few of my recent posters I've done for the Woodbury School of Business and the Center for the Advancement of Leadership

To Grandpa Trimble

This past week was the third anniversary of when my Grandpa Trimble passed away. This has been on my mind quite a bit, and I feel like I should share a few thoughts I have concerning this great man. His name was Cuthbert June Trimble, a name in itself that carries a lot of character. He was the hardest working man I have ever met, and I am so grateful that I, along with my siblings and close cousins were able to learn so much about honest work from him and my grandma. They were completely selfless, and have given so much to the family they raised in more ways than they could ever anticipate. I owe so much to my grandparents, and I feel so privileged to now be living in the home my grandpa built himself. While he was alive I never really felt like I had a connection with him. To be honest, he really intimidated me. The wonderful thing now is that through the opportunity of living here, I have come to know my grandpa in so many more ways. I discovered that like myself, he loved photography. My aunts were gracious enough to let me take care of his old cameras and put them to good use. I feel like through this small thing, I have grown closer to my grandpa in the last year than I did during the whole time he was on this earth. I have found an amazing love for my family- past and present, and I look forward to the ways in which I can grow closer to them, especially when Todd and I get to visit Scotland (where they came from). So now, I just want to thank my grandpa, for who he was and what he passed on to his family. He was such an amazing example of how to live your life completely doing what you love, which in his case was farming. He led a beautiful life, and I hope to do him and my grandma proud.

The Bird Pond

Today was actually a really great day. I'm finding that my best days are when I get to go to Salt Lake with a camera and just explore. Today I had to get some paper from the Utrecht Store (always exciting) and I had my Grandpa's old Wirgin TRL camera and his Ansco Shur Shot with me, and I came accross this beautiful pond with all of these great birds! It was wonderful to just walk around and shoot. Afterward Todd and I went to Lunch at a great place call Vinto, which I would highly recommend. We've had a goal lately of whenever we go out to eat we want to go somewhere new, and I'm so glad we found this little Italian Pizzeria- it's definitely getting me excited to leave for Europe in about 29 days. Yay! So here's to good days and delicious pizza margarita!

Food Photos are YUMMY!

Today I had the chance to photograph some food for the UVU Culinary Arts department, and let me say, they do a fantastic job! Plus we got to eat everything afterward, which definitely a high point of the day.
