Hooray for the red, white and blue!

This is a day late but in Utah we are patriotic all month long due to a state holiday on the 24th.  I am crazy in love with the 4th of July and I have long wanted to do a fun shoot around that theme.  I enlisted the help of my cousins darling kids and we had such a fun time. Thank-you Berkley, Peyton and Wilder!  :)  Happy 4th of July everyone!


I heart faces "Bright and Vivid"

I have been begging my cute cousin to model for me forever and we finally were able to get together and do a fun shoot.  We found an abandoned farm/corral in St. George, Utah and I am absolutely in love with this photo-I've even added it to my blog header! My style is bright, vivid and rich and so I jumped at the chance to enter this contest.  Thanks Brookie for helping me out!  For inspiration, tutorials and great photography, check out: http://www.iheartfaces.com/2011/06/bright-vivid-photo-contest/

Welcome to Moments Captured Photography by Crane & Co!

I finally have a blog! Wahoo!  I will be adding pictures of my latest shoots as I edit them but in the mean time, feel free to kick up your feet and browse around.  Thanks for stopping by!

Kelly and Dan Engagements

As I was editing these, I was listening to the Beatles, "Here comes the sun" and... the lyrics ring so true to Kelly and Dan:

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right

I am so happy for these two! Kelly is my best friend AND first cousin and has been through more than most people endure their entire lives. Dan is truly an answer to so many prayers and I am ecstatic and pleased for him to become a new cousin, brother and friend. Much love to you Kelly and Dan!
