Instagram Public Photos with #childhoodunplugged

My story isn’t anything particularly special, but it is mine - so i suppose that makes it special. i started when i was a teenager. i started when i was 13 or so... i loved to get disposable cameras and pretend to be a photographer. the next two pictures are me and my friend alicia trying to do a photo shoot. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ clearly we knew what we were doing πŸ˜‚ (that is a pillow under my dress, by the way). when i got married i got a couple of photography jobs. i worked at #searsportraitstudio and then for a school photography company taking school pictures and prom pictures. when i had my first baby my husband got me my first, “nice camera”. (nikon d40). of course, i took tons of pictures of her... and eventually a few families asked me to take pictures of them. i think i was charging $25 at the beginning. then, i moved to utah and i thought it would be so hard to be a successful photographer because there are so many photographers here! but, i was surprised to find that it was actually easier. photography is in such high demand here and i was also so inspired by all of the local talent. (@loriromneyphotography was my first utah photographer crush! 😘) i don’t think i would have improved nearly as much without social media. it gave me so much exposure to great photography that it was a huge part of my education. so, slowly and surely, i built a client base, kept improving (skill and equipment), and raising prices. and voila- here we are today! still learning. i have the clients that i want and make a really good side income for my family. it has been such a blessing. especially the last four months after my husband got laid off. it has been so amazing to have the ability to support my family financially. my tips for aspiring photographers- 1) don’t doubt yourself- everyone sucks at first. 2)appreciate and admire the improvements you do make! don’t expect your work to look amazing overnight. 3)buy great equipment- i shoot with an older body nikon d700 and prime lenses nikon 28mm, 50mm,and 85mm. 4)getting a great mentor is invaluable. you will speed your progress by years. ah-hem - i offer mentoring- it’s my ffffaaaavve! well, there ya go. my story.

I constantly go between wanting you to be my baby forever, and being excited about all the amazing things you'll do in this life ❀️

The babies went to bed almost an hour late tonight and though they were overly cranky they definitely had some #attitude about it. 😴

So my nephew here gave me a run for my money during this shoot...until my little bro asked him, “do you want aunt morgan to put a tootsie roll up her nose?” what two year old says no to that? you better believe i shot this entire session shooting tootsie rolls out of my nostrils because i never back down from a challenge and i’m kind of the coolest aunt ever. 😎

another one in her hat because i love how big and bright her eyes are here ! i’m taking their 4 month photo this week and i could cry just thinking about how quickly time has passed . their temperament is so much different than their brothers was and they nap so well , it’s almost enough to give me baby fever postpartum which blows my mind because it took two years to even consider the idea of another baby after having archer. how quickly do you get baby fever after giving birth ?!?

Spent a smokey day today splashing around at the lake!

bc has declared a state of emergency with over 560 wildfires burning throughout the province! this province is basically one big forest and with no rain in the forecast anytime soon we need to be so careful about fire safety to protect our trees and the people that live amongst them! πŸŒ²πŸ’–

Take me back

oh those curls.
wayback when at the amazing @esperanzaresort in cabo (an @aubergeresort property like @aubergedusoleil & @calistogaranch in napa valley!) despite a leaky ceiling in our villa on that trip right before the devastating hurricane rolled in.
.
x loved running from room to room, and taking dips in our private plunge pool. i love the yoga classes, relaxing spa and beautiful pools — you don’t even need to leave the kid friendly property if you don’t feel like it.
.
we were supposed to go back for a comped visit (super impeccable customer service!), once the hurricane repairs were made the following year but timing didn’t work out. .
each time we’d drive by the virginamerica planes at sfo on 101, x would say - “mommy i want to go swimming mexico!” even though his point of reference was the shallow (but very fun!) end of the adult pool.
.
making it a goal to bring x back to mexico to swim this coming year now that he really knows how to swim! it would be his third trip — his first time to @esperanzaresort was while in my belly when i was about 12 weeks! time flies! .
@esperanzaresort is truly a special place near and dear to my heart.
any of you share the same love for esperanza resort in cabo as i do?! πŸ’›βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨
