This Blog Has Moved!

I was googling my name and realized that this blog is still showing up but I’m no longer here

I’m logged into my old blog RSS feed to remind anyone that is still using this old feed that all of my new updated RSS feeds have been moved. You can either refresh your Google Readers if you’re using them. The address is exactly the same, but you still have to refresh to get new posts.

After today I’ll stop refreshing this RSS feed.

If you have no idea what this means, just ignore me 🙂

When you think of Idaho what do you think of (besides the obvious potato joke)? Probably not tornado land right?


The other day I was driving the usual way home. In the sky ahead I noticed a difference in the clouds. They seemed denser than normal. They were also floating along pretty fast.

I looked over to my right and noticed an even crazier sight. One of the clouds resembled a tornado. I decided to pull over and grab a shot of it because I knew nobody would believe me because let’s be real here, it’s Idaho.

When I stepped out of the car to take the picture it was unreal. There was definitely a different feel to the air. It was floaty and electric, yet nice. I felt excited and wanted to sit there and enjoy the view.

First thing I did was upload the photo to Twitter.

To my surprise:

So long story short, the tornado was a huge deal since Idaho rarely gets them (though it does happen). It touched down a couple times (I think, or maybe just once). But there wasn’t any major damage. Here are my cell phone shots.

PS. I can’t explain how sad I was that I didn’t have my good camera in my car. OF ALL DAYS.

Two weeks ago I photographed a family of 5. Mom, dad, and three boys. The following week I photographed another family of 5. Mom, dad and three girls.

It was fun to see the difference between the two. I grew up in a family of 3 girls so I can relate. It actually felt like I was looking back at my sisters and I 15 years ago.

When I arrived to the house I noticed the cutest little play house. Right away I wanted to take some pictures of the girls playing in it. I have lots more photos from this session coming soon but I wanted to share a couple now.

When I was a little girl I dreamed of having a play house like this. So cute.

After a few minutes I told the girls to give me some sass. They didn’t disappoint.

BAM. Sass attack. I knew they had it. Like I said, I used to be one.

Website is temporarily down for maintenance. You can currently access it at http://tk-foto.showitsite.com in the meantime.

Do you think this will be one of those embarrassing photos her dad pulls out when she brings her first boyfriend home?

Posts might be a little on the short side around here this week as I’m switching some stuff up. I’m completely switching over to a self-hosted WordPress account instead of the WordPress hosted version.

In the meantime I’ll leave you with this sweet little lady from the country.
