the girls of Oh So Delicioso

Today it’s the girls of Oh So Delicioso! These hot mamas cook up all sorts of savory and sweet treats in their kitchens—then they put the recipes of new faves up online for me and you to salivate over, and create ourselves. I have to say, having cookin friends aint bad. I often get a text that says something like “Lettuce wraps. Come grab some if ya want!” Well ok, if you insist. And those lettuce wraps were bomb. For reals. If you’ve got a hankering, find Desi’s recipe here.

The food blog started with Desarae (aka: Des/Desi) who loved to blog and who also loved food. Her sister, Aubrey, quickly became her partner. And as years went on friends trickled in to contribute, adding their own unique specialties and tastes. All these ladies strive to make their homes and husbands and lucky little kiddlets happy and healthy by whipping up goodness in the kitchen.

Well, these gals were working real hard on developing a new blogsite and they decided some new photos of its contributors were in order. And I was happy to assist them with that! Working on the creative of this shoot was so much fun. I love a client who tells me to dream up whatever I want—”We just want to illustrate our different personalities and friendship”. Best type of client directive ever!

Kendall E.

This radiant redheaded beauty is graduating high school in six days. She is quite the triple threat—dancing, singing, violining. She is also Jason’s baby sister and hair twin (except hers is long and currently his is a fro). I love Kendall. She laughs at all my jokes, has a ready supply of juicy boy stories that allow me to squeal at high octaves and yell things like “Oh no he di’n’t!”, and will do anything I say for the sake of a fantastic photograph.

We think you’re pretty awesome Ken! And we can’t wait to see the great things you do and hear stories of your many adventures to come.

Caley - LOVE them! So beautiful Geri…you are amazing!

aubrey - Adorable Geri. I love every single picture in this shoot! Just gorgeous.

Sarah and Eric

Sarah and Eric might be the most sincere and sweet couple I have ever met. She’s a California girl, he’s a Utah boy—once they met and there was an immediate spark. “There was something about this girl” Eric lit up when ever he would talk about Sarah. After quite the love story, these two finally got engaged and I am so so happy they chose me to photograph a few of their most special moments.

Plus they both love Sperry’s—so that obviously made us fast friends.

Our fall photo shoot took us to the canyons of Provo with the brilliant leaves. It was heavenly.

Suzanne and Jordan

Last fall I was fortunate enough to visit Salt Lake City to photograph the wedding of Suzanne and Jordan. It was a crisp late fall day and love was in the air. This couple was obviously made for each other. And that dress… that dress… that 1950’s dress…. was obviously made for Suzanne.

What a happy day and what wonderful people!
