As I drove to Eagle High School for Qarli Stone and Luke Leonnig’s big day, I could only imagine what their parents were feeling. All of the hour of driving their children to practice. The sprained ankles, the banged up knees, the special diets, the shoes, the uniforms, the doctor visits. The games where they watched their children succeed and sometimes get hurt. The joy of watching them do something that they so enjoy. What a long journey.

And as for the athletes…the hard work, the practices, the sheer determination that it takes to get your body into THAT kind of condition. The kind that propels you to the top of your game – so much so that a university wants you to play for them – to represent their school – to do what you love only at that next level.

With as many student athletes as I photograph, you would think that I’d have attended signing day before. Nope. Not until today. And what an amazing experience it was!!!

Congratulations to Qarli Stone who will be playing Soccer for Troy University in Troy, Alabama, and to Luke Leonnig who will be playing football for Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon (he’s a 5th generation Beaver!!!). Well done!!! We are so proud of you and can’t wait to follow you on to your next adventure.

A special note to Luke: Only YOU, my dear, could get this BYU/BSU fan to root for the Beavers! You go!!!!!

Meet Christee, Vallivue High School Senior, class of 2016. She loved choir, math, Kit Kats, and Sprite!

As you can see in some of her photos it rained on the day of her photo shoot. Most girls would run for cover. Not this girl! She embraced the rain and laughed her way through it.

We ended up calling the shoot when it got a bit too dark, due to the grey clouds. She was more than willing to come back a few days later when the sun came out!!!

I’ve had quite a few people contact me recently about wedding albums and how I design them.

What better way to tell you about them than to SHOW you some of my favorite pages from Lexie and Morgan’s album.

Lexie and Morgan were married at the Two Rivers Club House in the Two Rivers Subdivision in Eagle, Idaho.
Lexie’s dress is from Treasures in Idaho Falls, Idaho.

Flower designer was Diane Torell.
