Abby // SFX special effects makeup Pocatello, ID

This was such a fun shoot I did while mentoring with Kaity Braswell. She was schooling me on special effects makeup. I was teaching her how to use her camera. What a talented, special girl she is, just take a look at this gruesomely beautiful masterpiece.

There are times in your life where you focus solely on being present. This was definitely one of those times! We attended this years annual WPPI photography conference held at the MGM Grand hotel and casino in Sunny Las Vegas. There were so many amazingly talented people and huge names there that is was impossible not to get a little overwhelmed.

Most days we walked anywhere between 9-12 miles! Our poor feet!!!!! They were not happy with us by the end of the day.  But in typical Brookie fashion, I almost always schedule a short siesta during all my vacations. You should try it! It's the best thing to help get some rest and rejuvenate your bod to help get back at it after a few hours.  

All in all this was a fabulous trip with so much valuable education and real life information we are definitely planning on coming back next year! I'm just so damn lucky I get to experience everything with my bestie and sissy!


One of my most favorite things about being a photographer is being able to literally watch families grow and grow up. My first photo session with this sweet family was when Nancy (his momma) was pregnant. From seeing sister, Jaslene so excited about becoming a big sister to seeing how tender she is with him by feeding him cake at the cake smash, these moments melt my heart. I can't imagine what it does to their mom and dad!!! Love you guys and I am eternally grateful for letting me be a piece of your family story. You are beyond good to me. xxoo
