Macro Winter Snowflakes

Macro Winter Snowflakes

This is the first time I have ever tried macro photography with snowflakes. I loved it! The details and crystals in each snowflake are breathtaking, and I’m reminded how beautiful winter can be. When the snow falls in those big fluffy cotton balls, that’s one of the bets times to get the snowflakes in their full unbroken form. I took a rose and headed outside to see what kind of snowflakes I could get! It was so breathtaking. I seriously had dreams about snowflakes that night! Haha.

I used macro extension tubes, and a flash to get contrast in the lighting so you could see the snowflakes better. These images were taken in Rexburg, Idaho in the winter.

Moab, Arches National Park | A Photographer’s Dream

Moab, Arches National Park | A Photographer’s Dream

Moab has become such a special place for me. I revisited Arches National Park with a photography group that I led to all the hot spots. We did a lot of light painting and sunset shooting at Sand Dune Arch, Windows Arch, Delicate Arch, and many others. Moab also has a hidden waterfall that is my favorite waterfall I’ve ever seen. The waterfall is in the middle of a deep red canyon, with a beautiful pool of water to swim in below. It’s absolutely breathtaking. I did a lot of HDR by hand, a lot of light painting, and a lot of shooting! I can’t wait to go back to Moab again!

Water Splash / Waterdrop Splash

Water Splash / Waterdrop Splash

This is my new passion. The waterdrop splash. I love all the different types of splashes and crashes the water drops can make. I ESPECIALLY love when two water drops splash together and create umbrellas or other cool effects. It’s so exciting and amazing whenever i catch a water splash on my camera, it’s a nerdy adrenaline rush! I’ve figured out a way to get them to do that with nothing but household items around my house and my camera, and I must say, it is absolutely addicting!

Moab | Arches National Park

Moab | Arches National Park

My husband and I went to Arches National Park near Moab, Utah, and it was the best trip we have ever been on! It’s full of wonders, that’s fore sure. These are some photos of Zack and I in a few different spots in Arches National Park.

We also found this hidden gem, a waterfall, just a few minutes from the town of Moab that not many tourists know about. It was pristine, I loved it! The best waterfall I have ever been to and played in by far. It’s fairly warm, shallow, it’s shaped like a bowl, so you can jump in from any side you want, you can climb the waterfall, wade in the water, it’s amazing!

Grand Tetons | Mountains near Jaskson Wyoming

Grand Tetons | Mountains near Jaskson Wyoming

The Grand Teton Mountains are truly majestic. Thet can be seen from miles around, and during sunset or sunrise, you can’t help but see their majestic beauty. The colors that hit the Teton Mountains are a beautiful pink and orange, and during the fall, the colors of the leaves and fall textures really add to the scene. Fall is by far my favorite season. I had the chance to go there this last weekend, and was so blessed to have seen so many stunning sunsets and sunrises. I have grown up near the shadow of the Grand Teton Mountains and they represent so much to me!

Contact me if you would like to get a print of these images, or learn about locations, etc.

Arches National Park | Night and Sunset

Arches National Park | Night and Sunset

Arches National Park was the best vacation I have ever been on. The red rock and amazing arches are a one of a kind sight. When the sun starts to go down, the tourists start to leave, but you wouldn’t believe how beautiful Arches National Park can be at night!

When sunset hits, the rocks glow with a brilliant color, and starts start to dot the sky. I light painted these arches with my good friend Kelsey, and got some amazing effects! Light painting is a great way to make things look interesting and unique. I love it! These are only a few, and my first attempts at night photography at Arches National Park, but I am going back soon so watch for another post!

Arches National Park in Fog

Arches National Park in Fog

Arches National Park was one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. Arches National Park is near Moab, Utah, and if you haven’t been, go! The first morning I arrived, this thick billowing fog rolled in and I couldn’t believe how beautiful the red rock and the fog looked together. The arches and red rock were sticking out in the distance through the fog, and when the sun came up the light that poured through the fog was just unreal. It was such a blessing to be able to witness.

Macro Snail

Macro Snail

I was inspired by Katarina Jencova to take these macro reflection images. In the greenhouses there are lots of snails (If you know where to look!) and I was able to get some fun macro shots of these snails with flowers and their reflection in water. It was so relaxing to just be able to relax and do a photoshoot with the snails. It’s also interesting to do macro shots of the snails because you see details that you wouldn’t otherwise see.

Packsaddle – Hidden Lake

Packsaddle – Hidden Lake

Packsaddle is a lake hidden away in the Mountains near the Tetons, and to get there you will need a Jeep and be willing to hike a little. The view is unlike anything I have seen before, it’s beautiful, and once you get to Packsaddle Lake it is pristine, clear, and refreshing. Here are some pictures I got from my recent trip to Packsaddle!

Teton National Park

Teton National Park

Teton National Park near Jackson Wyoming has so many beautiful landscapes and waterfalls and mountains, it’s incredible. I had a change to go to the Teton Nation Park to photograph the Teton Mountains and all of it’s surrounding landscapes. Jackson was a fun town to visit too, Wyoming is beautiful.

The famous Teton Mountains were covered with fog and clouds from the Wyoming side for the first half, but we were lucky enough to capture some amazing images of the Tetons Mountains with the Mormon Row Barn and other barns and buildings when the clouds finally lifted! Teton National Park was still partially frozen, with frozen rivers, lakes, and mountains. There are so many chances for macro, landscape, wildlife, and fine art. If you haven’t been to the Teton National Park, find time to go! It’s also close to Yellowstone National Park, I have some posts about that, check them out here! Jackson Wyoming is famous for it’s antler arches, and all the beautiful parks around it as well.
