Hate is strong word, we can’t conquer hatred with hatred. We don’t have to agree on anything to be kind to one another! #AllLivesMatter#bekind#sunrise

Don’t worry about a thing, ‘Cos every little thing is gonna be alright.
No matter the circumstances going on around me, I know I’m lucky to be alive. I only care about living my best life, I block out the negativity, eat healthy, drink water, and exercise my mind and body daily. You can only control yourself. .
Probably the most prominent rainbow I've ever witnessed and while the sun was setting, it doesn't get any better than that.
I have been quite introspective lately, blown away by the tragedy and almost unbelievable-ness of the list of situations playing out before us on this planet. I recently moved to SLC from out East. In no way can I claim this city as my own but I am proud of the response of all of the people here fighting for better and fairer lives for those who have been systemically kept down. The heart and devotion of everyone in the United States to make lives better for all is unbelievable. These are the rights our forefathers intended you to exercise. To all the people out there fighting for a better life, I salute you and I hope to walk shoulder to shoulder down our path to freedom. I’m proud of my new city, Salt Lake!

Story: So yesterday we unexpectedly got a short, but strong rain. It was the kind that if it had lasted for just a little longer I would have known for sure that it was a perfect "waterfall rain". The water was running in the streets, which is pretty much a requirement for waterfalls, but it wasn't as much as sometimes. But, of course, I was going to visit the wash, because any chance of flowing water is reason enough to go. When I got there, there were small puddles everywhere, but no flowing water in the wash. I wandered down the wash a ways to a pretty spot and sat and took a few photos. I occasionally would look back to the wash to see if it were flowing. And then, suddenly, it was. I saw a fairly large volume of water go down over an edge further up. I grabbed my backpack and started running. I had already missed the first quarter of the wash. I purposely dropped my backpack because I was holding it awkwardly as I ran. I got to the leading edge of the water right before it got to one of my favorite spots. And this was my first capture of the water flow. It was exactly an hour after it had rained.

Taking appointments now for outdoor/nature kid sessions! Send me a message to reserve a spot ☺️
Well look what I found yesterday...a little pre-monsoon monsoon storm rolled through the far east valley yesterday. See the bigger image in my story or @dayflashapp , FB or even Twitter. The 16x9 crops just don’t do well on IG as a post.
It was a pretty good light show for an hour and not a ton of rain. It started with some dust but thankfully it was followed by an actual storm. As a bonus, I got to shoot with my east side pal @viz_pic_annemarie_comes I made her shoot outside and without her window tripod. 🤣
Camera nerd stuff:
First of all somehow my D800 got switched to shoot jpgs! Ugh I’m new at this...don’t @ me.
Single 25 second exposure. @nikonusa D800
Nikkor 24-70mm 2.8 at f/4 and 100 iso
I took 240 images with 2 cameras and 70 of them had some sort of bolt.
Thanks for being here and have fun!

And the classic shot, but with a bit more water than some of the last few times. The sun was periodically shining between the scattered clouds, and at this moment was shining on the upper part of my waterfall. The rest was shadowed by a rock formation. It really was a beautiful afternoon.
Thank you to AAA VIA magazine for sharing a photo I made at a terrific workshop at Arches NP in May 2019. I am honored! I’m always drawn to dead trees for some reason. I think even a dead tree has a story to tell.
💚 This cactus led the way to our little oasis we made home for a bit while we enjoyed snacks and swam around in this crystal clear water. Getting outdoors and getting dirty has definitely healed my soul from being stuck indoors for the past 2.5 months. This is just what I needed!!
I updated an edit from a favorite of mine from last year. I also slapped on a quick black and white edit, which I like a lot! Which style of this shot do you like more? Swipe through to see the full photos.

Huge thanks to everyone who ordered prints! Completely mind blown by the support and that my art will be hanging out in spaces around the country..
Next print sale will be after this summer and will be donating to a few of my favorite environmental organizations. I have been reading a lot of different articles today centered around the many injustices in our society and has me thinking more critically about how they are all connected..
One of my favorite professors in college who challenged me to think critically on many issues relating to the scientific community and in particular social justice has wrote a COVID chapter in his upcoming book, The State of Science. Link in bio of an article on the second piece! Worth the read..

Looking forward to seeing where the road takes me this summer ✌️
Loved my time spent with @bellariana shooting waterfalls! Doesn’t matter how many times I go to the same place it can always be seen with “different eyes”. I loved the moment when Kate saw this area, and then I pointed out the 297 foot waterfall in the background and her eyes lit up. I could feel in that moment just a mutual rush. #fotocatchers@fotocatchers
Some great shots of Havasu Falls by @natalstravelz. Lying just outside the boundary of the Grand Canyon, Havasu Canyon offers some incredible views like this 📸 The land is run by the Havasupai Tribe, and you must have a reservation to do this hike. You start by driving to Hualapai Hilltop, and from there the hiking begins. An 8 mile trek later, you arrive at the lodge and tourist office in Supai Village. Another 2 miles will land you at the campground! Some tips: you are not allowed to do this as a day hike, be prepared for a tough hike (it is recommended to be in good hiking shape), bring plenty of sunscreen, and be prepared for temperatures up to 115 F. One of the most spectacular photo spots in the US, make sure to add Havasu Falls to your Arizona parks bucket list!

This lone tree takes the definition to a another level. It’s out there all alone and dwarfed by the massive landscape around it. This shot was taken at 200mm. I regret not focus stacking so the foreground could be sharp, as well.

There’s no such thing as being “neutral” when it comes to injustice, staying silent is not “keeping peace”, and “not knowing” is not an excuse.
I’m using my privilege to speak up, rather than hunker down. I as a white woman hear you, see you, stand with you, and will forever speak up for you. We’ve been saying things need to change for too long, that’s why there’s so much outrage that lives are lost again and again stuck in a never ending loop of injustice. We all are human, and no lives matter until black lives matter. #blacklivesmatter#icantbreathe#istandwithyou#justiceforblackpeople
first hike in over two months and our LAST hike in Utah before we move! so happy to be back in the wasatch one last time.
these mountains will always have a special place in my heart. it’s where i backpacked for the first time, learned to ski, saw my first moose (and rattler, but i still deny that i saw one 🙅🏻♀️), hiked the day before i went into labor, and made a million memories with my little fam. it’s not goodbye, just see you later! 👋🏻💛
