So I'm taking a digital class this semester and I'm learning all the fabulous things photoshop can do. This week panoramas. So is taken at the round about by my apartment complex. I kind of liked how it turned out :) And...sorry it's so tiny! If you want to see it bigger just click on the image!

Haptic v. Visual

So I was given the assignment to take one visual photograph and then take one haptic photograph. So I found this lovely little scene on a side street of Rexburg one early overcast morning and snapped the shot. Once I realized how much I loved the color and composition I decided that was to be my visual. Then, to make it haptic I converted it into black and white and decided to add color back into it a different way, so I decided to sew it back in. Took ages, but I think I like the way it turned out!

Color in the Real World

In my color photo class I was given the assignment to find natural color combinations in the world and photograph them. The goal was to get examples of harmony, contrast, and monochromatic. Sounds fun right? Well it was, but much harder than expected. Rexburg in the winter is not the easiest place to find color. Alas, after wracking my brain trying to find stuff, I finally landing upon train graffiti, colorful to the extreme and oddly beautiful. So these are a couple of my favorite images.

The Path to Peace and Joy

For this series I was inspired by a beautiful talk "The Path to Peace and Joy" by Elder Richard G. Scott. (Look it up on In this talk Elder Scott gently reminds of the need to repent, the process of how to do so, and the joy that will come when we do. As I have reflected and pondered over the beautiful gift of repentance I have learned a lot about myself and also my loving Savior. As of lately I've realized the deep need and want for Him in my life. As I explored the process of repentance I've learned that the Savior is more loving than I could have ever imaged and that He can fix all wounds, no matter how broken you think you are. Repentance is beautiful and brings joy and I hope and pray that these images can reflect that.






Turning Away





This was the first time I've ever been able to put my religion into my work. It was kind of an incredible experience!
