I love my Job

Not only do I love my job being a momma to the two most beautiful little girls ever, but I love my job as a photographer.
It's amazing to me how much I've grown in the last year and a half.  
I seriously work on my craft EVERY DAY!
And I think...actually I know this is what and why I have grown so much and honestly become very successful.  
I never in a million years thought I would be so blessed like this.
I am a picky photographer and will only photograph that which I want to.
And by doing this, it has allowed me to really narrow down what type of a photographer I want to be AND has allowed me to shoot what I want to shoot.  

I really enjoy teaching photographers.  For years I read and studied, and practiced all the basics of photography.  
I was fortunate enough to work with a photographer shortly after Dave and I got married and he taught me a bit, then I grew from there.
With my knowledge and my distinct style I have been able to teach other photographers who enjoy my work.

This past July I held my first Wish Retreat.  A photographer retreat.
It was 3 days long and it was a blast.
I rented a cabin up near Park City.  
I planned shoots and taught editing classes and we chatted about business.

I had women come from all over.  Two came from Louisiana and one came from Canada.  Then I had women from all of the state of Utah; from Price and Vernal, Tooele, South Jordan and Saint George.
These women are now my life long friends and I am so blessed to have been able to met them.

I already have my 2012 retreat halfway booked and I'm thrilled.

With that enjoy some fun photos from retreat.

My name is Kandis and I'm a addict.

Hello, my name is Kandis and I am addicting to pinning. 
PINTEREST has sucked me in and is not letting go.
I could spend ALL DAY pinning.
BUT man does some of these pins make me feel no good.
I really want to see some of these REAL life spaces people pin.  
Everything is so pretty on Pinterest.
I AM IN LOVE WITH IT....I need a therapist for my addiction.

From Pinterest of course!

2nd Grade? ALREADY?!!!

I seriously can't believe I have a second grader.  WHERE DOES TIME GO?!

Although I wish Elle didn't have to go to school and she could hang out with me all the time (just because I'm selfish that way), I am thrilled with her teacher this year.

Her teacher and I have been friends since Junior High!
I never in a million years thought my child would be taught by my friends (outside church that is).

Not only is she my friend, but she is a fabulous teacher.  Like I said...BEYOND THRILLED!

Staying true to tradition I had to take the DOOR STEP pictures of Elle before she went off to the 'new school'.   Yes we got a new school this year and it's is super nice.  Elle already loves it!

Enjoy these few pictures of Elle...TRENDY AS EVER!
