I've been asked why I only shoot couples boudoir, a lot lately. It's a simple answer. I wanted to focus on the intimacy that happens in the home, in real life. I want to document couples in love after or even before the "I Do". I want that love that takes out the garbage, does the dishes, the love that folds the clothes, and welcomes you home. I myself have been created solely on all the in-betweens life has to offer. So naturally and passionately, I am drawn to other people's in-betweens. The love in-between jobs, in-between kids, in-between walls, inbetweens it all. That my friends, is he good good stuff, and that is why. #couplesboudoir #utahboudoir #miruphotography #boudoirphotography #inthehome #photography #utahphotographer

When Sunday spills into Monday. Abbie and Davy have such a tangible love, the kind you can hold in your hands. The kind that only looks forward not side to side or behind. #miruphotography #couplesboudoir #boudiorphotography #utahphotographer #utahboudoir #sundayvibes #inthehome

I posted this photo last night with some words about a sale I'm doing for thanksgiving. I had to delete it. It just wasn't me. I'm not a salesperson. Hell, I don't even consider myself an artist. But I am a storyteller. A truth teller. A flashlight holder. I shine a light on people's love stories. But I also show the things others including you lovers, might not see. The real, the dark, the shadows. I want to come into your messy homes, and expose your messy, but beautiful love. All shapes, sizes, and genders. Let's spend a Sunday together shall we? #andontheseventhday #couplesboudoir #utahboudoir #utahphotographer #blackandwhitephoto #lovelovelove

This guy. Ugh. He drives me insane, but I love him. Super grateful that he will go on freezing cold rides with me and all that jazz. He loves me despite my crazy or maybe because of it. Either way, I'm a lucky girl. #93percentofthetime #mancrushin #ugh #butthead

Double digit birthday for these two. We skipped school and work to play memory and eat cake for breakfast. -- The rain didn't stop these two and I couldn't be more proud to call them mine. I'm at a loss for words, it was their 10th birthday, but seeing their faces this morning when they saw their new bikes felt like Christmas to me. I cried all the tears. Oh the places you will go... #twinning

Throwback to our first camping trip together. We slept in a tent that felt like a castle, it was a bitch to put up but worth those smiles.-- Sometimes life makes it hard to get out of bed, I try to think about little kid laughs in the mountains instead. When the world seems like a dark place, I focus on my family and what raising good kids can change. I love these little humans so much. #ibelievethechildrenareourfuture

I am now a proud owner of a 2017 Ruby Expert. I'd rather have this bike than any car in the world. Feeling super stoked to work at Specialized. Ask me if I cried. Yeah, I did. I also put her next to my bed so she was the first thing I saw this morning. Sorry Thom. #specializedbikes #rubyexpert #iminheaven

Being a good parent isn't easy. Sometimes kids whine and they throw fits. Sometimes they make grunts instead of words. Sometimes they are tired and grumpy. Sometimes they really really want a second scone, and sometimes you just gotta tell them no. This kid can be a stinker, but he's the cutest boy I know. #number1dad #myboys #thomisbrighterthanthesun #gethimoutofyourshoe

I'm grateful for a lot, but top of the list, working windows. I love the wind more than most things in life, it makes me feel alive. -- Commuting to work gives one a lot of time to think. Sometimes I think about the future and hopes and dreams. But usually I'm replaying memories on repeat. Like how my grandmother has been dead for 18 years now, and I never knew a version of her without cancer of some sort. I think about how she wore rite aid shoes and pigtails and shirts with pockets to hide the fact she only had one breast. I think about how funny she was and how honest she was. She always always told it like it was, me too grandma, me too. But lately I've been thinking about how she shot her second or third husband in the stomach, and how much he deserved it. The drive helps motivate me to write. Sigh, words, my first real love. -- long story short, I like the windows down, and I like my face in this photo, and I need to write more, so there. #womenwhowrite #powerwindows #grandma

The only thing I've ever really really been good at is, love. I've been obsessed. These two reminded me why I decided to shoot couples boudoir only. I wanted to focus on the one thing that really drives me, love. They have that good shit, and this photo proves it, I actually cried when edited it, just look at that happy.

20 years of friendship is a long time. And I don't mean, we talk here and there and catch up and like each other's photos. I mean we know every detail of each other's lives. If it happened she knows about it. We argue and get mad at each other, but we work through it. She has taught me how forgive and accept, even when I really don't want to. At the end of the day, I know I couldn't possibly live without her. 🖤

Today I turned 32. Evelyn took this photo right before I ugly cried because I was overwhelmed with gratitude. There I was in my very humble kitchen with a cake from my mom and kids, and a cake from Thom, as they belted out happy birthday in unison I felt like I might combust. This year hasn't been easy by any means, but I can say it's been unbelievably beautiful. I feel like I'm right where I'm supposed to be, and that birthday song I've heard countless times before, has never sounded more lovely. #oneyearolderandwisertoo

He makes me laugh, real real hard. His hands make me feel safe. He wipes me up off the floor when I'm just a crying heap. He folds clothes with me. And there he goes looking so beautiful, without even trying. #thomisbrighterthanthesun #broncolife

First honey suckle experience in my grandparents backyard. I have so many memories that run parallel to the fence that houses those flowers. These two drive me insane, but they also drive me. I hope they are always enamored with the world. #wcw #twinning

We are not fake laughing, but I can't remember what we are laughing at? Probably my dad. Probably the fact that we killed it on the tandem. Who knows. But it was a damn good day. Not pictured: my father attempting to convince us he blows up tubes with his mouth. #thomisthebomb #thomisbrighterthanthesun #mydadisrad #tandemonium

Lately, I've been feeling like a bad mom. I think it's normal to feel like a bad mom sometimes, all moms do. But I've been grumpy, my fuse has been short, and I feel like no fun at all. --- I try to do everything, be everything, and the second I get home from work, I do all my mom jobs, or at least try to. And god damn it, I'm fucking tired, down right exhausted. It's like I've no room left for laughs or hugs or fun. -- but then I look back at days that felt warm and happy and sounded like cheers. Like this day, when Emery finally learned how to ride without training wheels and Toby had us make a pizza with our front tires, and then I feel better. I've been making room for fun and all the good stuff, and this photo is proof that that day, I was a good mom. #momguilt #spokesandjokes #tirepizza
