Thanks for stopping by!

Photography is one of my passions. It pushes me. Inspires me. Teaches me.
I love photography because it helps me capture the other passions of my life:
family, beaches, babies, color, art, cookies, books, girlfriends, and traveling.
(Check out my travel dates to see when I will be in your area.)
Photography makes it possible to hold onto life's little moments that pass all too quickly.
Let's capture your moments together.

Kristin Mills Design Is Fine!

I wanted to take just a minute to thank Kristin of Kristin Mills Design for creating such a fresh and fun line of cards for my photography clients to use (and for creating a new logo and watermark for TENDERSHOOTZ as well). More fresh and fun cards for every kind of occasion are on the way, so be sure to ask!

Not that she can't do elegant, of course, because she can and does!

In fact, I think you will agree that her talent is monstrous...!

Kristin graduated from BYU in advertising and worked for a large agency in New York, where she garnered not only praise but awards for her work. Now that she and her husband have relocated in Utah, she is branching out in several directions, and TENDERSHOOTZ is happy and proud to be one of them.

Welcome aboard, Kristin!

If you are interested in ordering any of these cards (or similar cards with different themes), just let me know. I'm sure we can accommodate your needs.

What a Team

Loved hanging out with these two for the afternoon. They are both fun people with a casual love that feels like it comes so easy.

Love the building in this next one...

You can see he adores her....

and she adores him too!

Yep, they make a good team!

Over the Head

I have not entered a weekly photo challenge in a while. I just couldn't pass this one up! The theme is "over the head" and people have come up with some really fun photos!

Safe and warm with Grandpa

I'm happy to announce that TendershootZ has teamed up with Kristin Mills Design to create a series of new and original cards for every occasion. (When it comes to ideas, we don't recycle.) Whether you're looking for fun or fancy, I think you will agree that Kristin's design talents are outa this world...definitely something to tweet about! (Order any of these from me or let us know what else you might be looking for. I'm sure we can accommodate you.)

Family Tree

When life is getting hard for me,
I climb up in my favorite tree
and look down on the world below
where grass is green and flowers grow.

I start to feel good sitting there,
secure within my branchy chair.
Up high, the things that made me frown
look way too small to bring me down.

The sky’s more blue; the sun’s more bright,
and all my dark clouds turn out white
when I climb up my favorite tree.
Oh, what a friend he is to me!
