Product spotlight

I really wanted to post a Product highlight. I had a client order some beautiful images from her session! I thought I would post them on the blog so some of my clients can see the quality product they can get from their images.
The middle image is a 16x24
the two smaller images are 11x14
all are mounted on 2mm styrene and coated for protection
The quality is amazing, they are clear as can be. All images 11x14 and larger will be mounted like these. All other images have the option as well. This is your LIFE as art. On your walls passed down through generations.
I am GUILTY. . . I need to print more images and hang them in my home. This is a goal for me.
not to let my images sit on the computer or a disk. Get them printed. There is nothing like a printed image... It is so yummy.

the BEST!
So much inspiration

so much
more to


YES! I know I am a spaz. This after my last post but seriously I just spent about 2 hours
(of which I should have been editing) blogstalking FANTASTIC photographers and being inspired. I also bought a magazine called "Artful blogging" I did not know such a thing as a magazine about blogging existed, but it does! :) I never thought I would heart blogging so much.

a self portrait for the day!

Thank you!

SO on a personal note.... {not that you really want to hear all my babbling} BUT. . .I just wanted to say thanks for all of the emails and comments I have had on my latest sessions. So much joy and sense of accomplishment comes for me when my clients Love their pictures. :)
I wanted to answer a few ?'s and maybe give some words of encouragement...
what have I been doing different you ask? Why are my pics better? Do I have Cs3 or 4?

to answer those I have to say this...

When I fist started to do Photography I was learning about composition and doing a lot of stuff with my point and shoot. When I got my DSLR I seriously was overwhelmed! I poured into learning this thing for over a year with classes and books and practice. Then I got a new lens which added another learning curve, and then there is PHOTO SHOP (ugh!) who knew it was going to be so hard, Well I am up for a challenge and ALWAYS pushing myself to do better, learn better

Like how do I get my images crisp like that photographer
or how do they do that process on photo shop?

So to say the least I have worked my tushy off. I still am using photo shop elements 6.0
{an ancient baby version of what I really need.}

I am so flattered that you all have been so nice, that I have so many people emailing me and asking me questions and booking sessions, It feels like all the hard work is paying off. . .

So in short I have not done much different

things are just starting to click better! I am more comfortable with my camera, I have lighting down to a science (pretty much) and to be honest these images in the posts lately are a lot of SOOC (straight out of camera) with photo shop of course, but not as much as I have done before.
So better SOOC images equal less work in photo shop and better end results...
If you are just starting out, or are wanting to get into the business or just love photography, my advice to you is to work hard and study and learn all you can....then PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE...
again, thanks for all the emails and questions. I really do not mind answering questions about technical stuff and I have loved making new friends . . .
Thank you xoxo Keri Ann
p.s. I can't go without a pic, so here is one I love that never got posted!

Another family session

This time with some of MY family! While I was at the funeral of my husband grandma, I was able to do a few sessions with my family. and let me tell you it was so much fun! I am always so jealous of the photogs in Utah that have those amazing mountains to capture in the background.
My Brother in law just happens to live in the perfect spot and we only had to walk down the street to get these beautiful shots. My niece and nephew are so cute. My niece is only 14 and already drop dead gorgeous!
I told you I was going to be posting a lot in the next little while.
I have A LOT of catching up to do and a ton more
sessions in the next month :)
In this first shot I wanted to make it look really cool because it is a picture that speaks to me. Just so different. . . when I was at the funeral it made me think a lot about images. Her viewing and funeral were filled with images from her life. I feel that images capture time, and live forever... what am I saying with my images? what can I capture for others that will speak to their posterity? It is something I want to incorporate more into the sessions I do. Create something that will speak to the soul, in life, in death... for always.

The White Family

A M A Z I N G!
Beautiful people
Beautiful setting
what I would consider a "perfect family picture"
Seriously I would give anything to get everyone in my family looking
this great in a family photo! I had so much fun with these. Kim thanks
for letting me take you on a little hike, sorry about the bugs...and the weeds
but I am totally in Love with this session. Such beautiful girls.
ALSO. . . just to humor me, Tell me what you think of the new background.
Do you think it is too busy? is it distracting. should it stay, or go?
Feedback would be greatly appreciated!
