JuanitaBPhotography-Family

A little but about me: I grew up in Southern California and Southern Utah. I played collegiate volleyball in Sheridan, Wyoming and Durango, Colorado. When I returned to Utah, I met my Cowboy on a blind date set up by our little sisters (who were 15) and we’ve been in Utah ever since. He surprised me on our first date by showing up in ‘skater’ clothes, since he knew I liked cowboys, and I surprised him by eating ALL of my huge plate of pasta (the wait was SOOO long and by the time we were seated, I was starving!!!). I could tell by his truck that he was a team roper and he could tell I wasn’t afraid to eat. Now, we’ve been married for 7 years and have two beautiful daughters. We love being outdoors, eating ice cream and just spending time together (in no particular order).

My first passion is learning, which fits my day job as an Elementary school teacher. I’m a life-long-learner and am always up for the challenge of something new. I pursued my interest in photography as a new art medium in High School, but volleyball paid for college so I focused on athletics and my studies. It wasn’t until I had been teaching for a few years and knew that I needed to get back to creating art, and again photography became my artistic outlet. It also allowed me the opportunity to show others how amazing they are, capture the moment and learn to appreciate simple imperfections. The sweetest glances, hair blowing in the wind and laughing make for stunning images. I love being able to capture them, preserve them and allow them to be shared with others.

Sessions with me have a balance between traditional and lifestyle, allowing for guidance in posing, but also freedom to move and play. The time passes quickly and we are always thrilled to know that the time spent together was casual and painless. So often being in front of the camera is not everyone’s favorite way to spend time, but being able to enjoy it and have those beautiful images afterward is simply delightful. I specialize in family and individual portraiture, and thrive on the being able to create artistic portraits of clients in their element; being able to photograph artists in their studio, athletes in the gym, families in their home and children jumping on the bed. Being able to show others the beauty that I see is my gift to give. We are each beautiful, our lives create art and I simply give them a chance to see it in themselves.

Along with my passion of life long learning, I love encouraging others in their pursuits as well. I don’t like to talk about myself, but since I needed to shout out how amazing The Dating Divas are, I wanted to introduce you to some other amazing women that I’m blessed to know! There’s also items up for grabs for 6 lucky readers!

  1. Kelly from Dixie Dollar Deals has a wonderful way of spreading the word on great deals throughout Southern Utah and tips to help even those not in Utah! She will be giving away 2 head wraps/scarves from noVae Clothing and a necklace from DownEast Basics (value $39).
  2. Lyndy Butler with LyndyButler.com has such a fun Rootsie-Folk-IndiePop Rock sound that one can’t help but be happy when listening to – even when its about regular moments in life. I have one The Dream album to be given away.
  3. Kendra from BellezaMia has beautiful, unique, personalized jewelry utilizing only the finest quality materials including sterling silver, freshwater pearls, a large assortment of gemstones and hand stamped pendants. I instantly fell in love with this Silver Horseshoe Necklace and so many other items she has to offer! She is giving away one “Personalized Sterling Silver Initials Necklace (up to 3 letters)”.
  4. Brene Brown with BreneBrown.com doesn’t actually know me, or the impact she’s had on my life – but SO many others need to know her!

Healthy marriages exist with healthy individuals ~ who spread the understanding and knowledge with everyone they interact with. I’m giving away a 9×12 special edition print of the Daring Greatly Parenting Manifesto found in Brene’s shop.

  13. I would do the photo session in Southern Utah 🙂 It’d be a great excuse to go back to Zion’s National Park (Where we went on our honeymoon 😉 )

    If I got one of the second prizes, I think I’d go for the Daring Greatly Parenting Manifesto print 🙂

  14. So many choices! Though I live in Wyoming, I am headed to Vegas, so doing a photo shoot in Southern Utah seems like the most convenient location.
