Butterfly Wonderland

Butterfly Wonderland

Scottsdale Arizona boasts the largest butterfly atrium in the United States. My boyfriend recently moved there and we saw it off the side of the freeway while driving one day. We decided to check it out on a Sunday afternoon. We were probably the oldest people there (without kids) but hey, I wasn’t complaining! There were thousands of butterflies and moths from all around the world which made for some awesome photos! I had a great time.. even though it felt like a humid oven!SkyeHighBlogbutterfly-13 SkyeHighBlogbutterfly-14 SkyeHighBlogbutterfly-12 SkyeHighBlogbutterfly-11 SkyeHighBlogbutterfly-10 SkyeHighBlogbutterfly-8 SkyeHighBlogbutterfly-9 SkyeHighBlogbutterfly-7 SkyeHighBlogbutterfly-6 SkyeHighBlogbutterfly-4 SkyeHighBlogbutterfly-5 SkyeHighBlogbutterfly-3 SkyeHighBlogbutterfly-2 SkyeHighBlogbutterfly-1 SkyeHighBlog-1 SkyeHighBlogbutterfly-28 SkyeHighBlogbutterfly-26 SkyeHighBlogbutterfly-22 SkyeHighBlogbutterfly-20 SkyeHighBlogbutterfly-19 SkyeHighBlogbutterfly-16 1 5 4 3 2

 Jamie & Michelle

Jamie is one of my favorite girls to shoot with! This time, she brought her friend Michelle. They’re both beautiful girls! We had so much fun wondering around Big Cottonwood Canyon and finding some super cool spots to shoots at! She’s moving to California soon and I wish her the best! I know she’s going to kill it out there and I can’t wait to meet up and shoot near Golden Gate!

P.S. Some of the black&white images are different tones, I was having fun playing around with them!

This family is so awesome! It was the greatest pleasure to be able to spend the evening with them roaming around Salt Lake. I love their sense of humor (and beautiful faces). Also, congratulations to Logan on his recent graduation from Hillcrest High School! Go Huskies!

I loved shooting this Maasai tribal themed shoot! I had a wonderful time in Kenya. I was so excited to get home and photograph beautiful Smay in some of the jewelry I was bringing back! The women in Maasailand were so kind and giving, many of these items were gifts. However, many of them are also for sale! During my time teaching and volunteering at Nkoile Primary School in Kajiado, Kenya, my partner and I discovered a nonprofit that was created by a woman who visited the school in 2011; Sylvia’s Students Foundation. Christine, the founder, had been in contact with the headteacher to have some of the women in the community make jewelry to be sold by the nonprofit. All of the proceeds will go to buying textbooks for the students and repairing a rainwater tank (which desperately needs to happen before the rain season in November). If you’re interested in purchasing some of the jewelry, leave a comment!
