Etre [eh-truh] : French verb meaning "to be". This is the most simple and truthful thing any of us is capable of.
With Etre, my goal is to capture your cherished and important moments in an honest and truthful way through my lens. In short I strive to capture you...simply being you.



After hours and hours,
a few tears (both happy and frustrated ones),
minor setbacks, lots of prayers, some diet coke,
and a TON of incredible support from my genius family members,
I'm FINALLY ready to introduce you to!!!
I am so so so excited for 2013 and all of the incredible clients I'll get to work for this year!
It's totally fine by me if you'd like to be one of them by the way.
You make my world go round, literally, and I want so sincerely to gift you the caliber of product that blows your mind, makes you smile, and reminds you of who you love and how blessed you are.

Clarke Family // American Fork Canyon

Someday I hope to raise a family as full of love as this one is. I'm not kidding that the sibling interactions going on up in here broke every stereotype that exists. It's that and their color scheme that are my very most favorite things about this smiliest, most charming Clarke family.


Mr. & Mrs.

"I have spent many years in opposition. And rather like the role." -Eleanor Roosevelt

Life in the Smith home is full of opposition.
Don't worry though, it's a beautiful thing.


Casey and Corey // Wedding

The thermometer is telling me that it's one degree outside,
so I thought I'd warm up INSIDE blogging Casey and Corey's beautiful (and warm) August wedding. I seriously can NOT wait for the warm summer nights to return!

/ Luncheon /
/ Reception /
 Obsessed with Corey's suit, and the handmade invitations designed by the bride's mother.
 Don't worry, those are just sweet little chocolate-covered sunflower seeds in the favors.
The bouquet toss was actually a gunny-sac race to the bride, aka a stroke of pure genius.
 The father of the bride's band provided the musical entertainment.
And did a great job clearing space for the dance floor.

Oh I love my clients to pieces!
