winter lighting

I have such a love hate relationship with winter and photography
the lighting is always fabulous all day long but it's so much harder to have sessions
.cause lets face it.
WHO wants to go out in the cold for photos? 
(especially when you've got little ones)
Bridals are always spectacular in the snow!
 but brides don't know how worth it it is to go out and freeze or wait till the yucky spring comes in.
I wish summer and winter could come to some kind of an agreement on lighting 
until then we'll just continue to hide inside

Nate & Amy

Meet Nate & Amy!
This couple is one of those awesome couples that met in High School
waited through the ENTIRE mission and now they're finally tying the knot!
They were so fun to photograph! I'm so glad I get to work with them through their entire wedding!
Unfortunately for me thats not till March.

Amy just told me she finally found her dress so looks like her bridals are going to be in the snow
I adore snowy bridals!!
can't wait.
I'll upload more from this shoot tomorrow but for now it's 2 a.m and my husband just caught me at my computer ha ha ha

The Montgomery Family!

I've done a lot of shoots in my life but this one was definitely one of my most challenging!
but challenging
The Nicki and Mike were FINALLY blessed with
not one
but TWO little ones 9 months ago and they are such cute parents!
The shoot was a challenge because I've never poses with 2 new borns and it was surprisingly difficult.
It was also FREEZING cold and these two kiddos were not  having that.
Regardless we still got a few fun shots in :)

Heres a little preview

Bombshell Bridal

I have been SO excited for this shoot and I think it's pretty obvious why!
This is a friend of mine from High School she played volleyball with me. 
Lexe got married in July and asked me to shoot these for her after the big day (for obvious reasons).

..please keep in mind that it's now November and she's laying in a lake..
I only got in up to my thighs and I was FREEZING!

.i love her.

 Lexe is SO photogenic! One of my best brides I've ever had
 There are about 30 more pictures I want to post from this shoot but thats all I've got for you now, sorry.
We'll call this the sneak peak :)

 Thanks for the shoot Lexe! 

xo, Meg

Trevor and BreeElle

I LOVED this couple!
They are so fun together, I just had a blast shooting them!

 Such a handsome happy groom

Evangeline Mei Valantine

As promised! Here are the pictures of the darling little girl!
I had so much fun doing these because my extremely even tempered baby was wide awake for the entire shoot and then finally fell asleep right at the end for some fabulous sleeping shots! 
Check them out
love them
Baby sessions also count as a 2 hour session that I'm running a special on right now
(A special that I have yet to announce, I'm sorry!)

Sorry to have left!

Are you all still here!?
Sorry i've been absent of my blog for so long but I took a little break from my studio to add a ADORABLE little girl to my life! 
(pictures to come!)
To welcome me back from maternity leave I'm going to be offering a special on my 2 hour sessions!
These sessions are GREAT for families, seniors, babies, engagements, bridals and more!
I'm not sure what the discount is going to be but I'll post more about it soon!
Until then..

Congratulations to Kevin and Jessica who got married in the L.A temple on Saturday!
Best Wishes!
