So you follow me on Facebook or Instagram right? Whether we’ve been friends for a while, you’re a recent client or you don’t know me very well at all, I’m sure there are things you didn’t know about me. Well some of you may know all of these things but a lot of you likely don’t. So here’s 10 things about me and how I live my life outside of photography. 10 Things you Didn’t know about me | Newborn Photographer Logan Utah
These are in no particular order… 10 Things you Didn’t know about me
I love to snowboard
2. I LOVE to TRAVEL!
AHHH, it’s like a high I get. Traveling is one of my most favorite things to do. Andy and I used to travel ALL THE TIME. Until we decided we wanted to try to get pregnant and then we started infertility stuff and had to be home so we were restricted a little. Some of my favorite places we went: Costa Rica (Photos below), New Orleans, Mexico, Alaska, Canada (Banff National Park), Moab, Lake Powell and more. I am SOOO excited to be able to travel again! We are headed to Mexico in January just the two of us (meeting some friends there) and I can’t wait. I’m likely going to be devastated to leave Kip but it’ll be so good for us and I crave that adventure we used to get all the time!
3. I ran RAGNAR.
Yup I did. I ran it 3 time to be exact. What is Ragnar? It’s a group Relay race from Logan to Park city. You run 3 legs ranging from 3 miles to 10 miles in three different times and as a team you finish around 190 miles! Now, let me explain briefly. I hate running, Like with a passion. BUT it was seriously the best experience ever. For one, it challenged me to my core. Two, It was an experience I’ll never forget. Run, Eat, Sleep, Repeat – But It was so much fun with the group of people we had. The year photographed below was my favorite!
4. I love boating.
I’m sure you’ve heard me talk about going to the lake before. Yes I love it! I grew up with my parents owning a boat and I started water skiing when I was like 5 or 6 years old. I love that I get to share that with Andy, Kira, now Kip and my family and friends too. I’ve owned 3 boats and 2 jet skis. My last boat we had for like 11 years. I loved that thing and was sooooo sad to see it go. It treated us so well. But I’m so ready for some new adventures and learning to Surf with our new boat!
5. Dance Dance Dance.
I grew up dancing! My mom started me at the age of 3. In high school was on the drill team for 3 years and then started teaching dance at Rhythm Connection where I taught for many many years. I I stopped teaching when Photography took over and was too busy. I miss it some days. It was a passion of mine and I loved seeing my students progress and get new tricks, technique and routines.
6. Jack Johnson is my FAVORITE artist!
Andy and I went to a concert years ago and I can’t wait to go to another one!
Jeeping became a new favorite after Andy took me to Moab when we started dating. We had borrowed his dad’s jeep and headed there for the weekend. I fell in love with the rush of climbing obsticals and the terrain. So what did we do? I bought a White Jeep Wrangler and then had Andy help me trick it out. Last year the bearing went out in the motor so we decided to do a motor swap and put a new LS Chevy Motor in. Its SOOO much more powerful and has tons of torque. We haven’t been able to take her to Moab yet but you’ll be sure we’ll get “Rod” back on the trail again soon. I hope Kip loves to Jeep as much as Andy and I do.
8. I have three sisters!
I’m them middle child. Jamee, Steph, Stacey and Shayna. I love my sisters and have always looked up to each of them for different reasons. They are unique and amazing people!
9. Max, oh Max.
I have had Max for 10 years. He’s my little side kick and BFF. He started loosing his sight the last few years and is mostly blind. About 4 years ago he was diagnosed with Addison’s Disease and has been on a daily pill and monthly shot ever since. He’s high maintenance in that way but I love him like he’s my child. If’ you’ve been to my studio then you likely have seen (or heard) Max. He likes to bark more these days but he really is a nice dog. He just can’t see anything so he barks all the time when new people are around.
10. Christmas is my favorite holiday!
I LOVE TO DECORATE my living room and my Tree. We don’t put our tree up until Thanksgiving though but man I sure enjoy it. I used to be done shopping early like before November but then I’d end up over buying because I would want to keep buying things until Christmas came. So now I save myself some stress and money and just shop the month of December. Ok usually!
So there you have it.
