Couples Engagments Families

What is a Best Friend? What is your definition? Throughout my life I have had some great friends… I currently have some of the GREATEST friends one could ask for… But do you want to know a secret? If you promise not to tell I will fill you in on who I would consider to be one of my Best Friends.

Imagine with me for a minute… you are sitting in your neighbors back yard. It is late and you and your Best Friend are playing Truth or Dare. As You sit anxiously on the tramp, your sleeping bag is curled around your legs. It’s obvious that you are not as brave as your friend. You are TERRIFIED to say Dare because you know that you will absolutely pee your pants if you have to do the things you know are going to be asked of you. But you are also mortified to say Truth because then you’re going to have to divulge some inner secret that all your friends already know but you will certainly turn crimson if you have to say it out loud! Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh! What are you going to do?

Well Folks I have a pretty crappy memory when it comes to details… but I can vaguely remember there was dares to lick the paint on the side of the house… and Truths that were shared that I know caused hours of giggles…
Now imagine sitting in your neighbor’s basement eating chips and salsa and preparing yourself to watch a Horror Movie that you know you are going to be watching in small spurts as you peek through your fingers. PS don’t forget to bring you sleeping bag in from the Trunk of your car FIRST! Because having to go and get it after midnight in the pitch black after you have just tortured yourself by watching I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER…. Not Cool!

Imagine now sitting on your neighbors couch reading Anita Stansfield and your Best Friend is laying on the couch across the room reading a different book by the same author. You stay like this ALL DAY! I am pretty sure you don’t even shower. And it was PERFECT!
You are wearing Black Spandex exercise shorts and short sleeved turtle neck woven tees. You are on Stage in front of your whole 5th grade preforming a BOMB Diggity Lip Sync to Mariah Carey’s ‘Fantasy.” And just in case you (your NOW you, not your imagine with me you.) haven’t had the extreme pleasure of watching this Music video… I have graciously included it here! You’re welcome! I’ll just wait here patiently for your return.

Time Has Passed! Now you live in Logan while your Best Friend lives in Pocatello. You both make new friends. You both begin your adult lives…
One day you call your Best Friend in tears because you have had a hard break up with a long-time boyfriend. Your Best Friend invites you to come to her dorm in Pocatello to attend a Dance with Friends.
Many more years pass and you see each other at very rare special occasions because by now you are both married and starting families. An opportunity is found to sneak in a dinner at Chuck A Rama where her Little Mister drinks out of your straw… and you don’t even care because he is your best friend’s son and you love him even though you barely know him.

She met you for dinner recently and you talk like no time or distance has passed at all. You love her because she is one of your Best Friends. It”s likely you’ll see her once a year at most… And yet you know that no matter how much time has passed she will always be one of your Besties and you can always count on her… Even when she is 90 and drinking 10 Dr Peppers and Day and not looking a Day over 50.

 Props or No Props | That is the Question?!? -Props or No Props | Logan Utah Photographer | MelB Photography- In a previous post I gave a brief opinion about Props. I thought I would dig a little more into this topic... When I first started MelB Photography I believed Props was where it was at! I went out right away and spent a mini fortune on all these adorable props! I would buy all these shabby items and turn them into adorable masterpieces! During my first year of business it was likely that if you drove by my home you would most likely see me out spray painting something. If not that there was certainly many multi colored props ...

The Winns have been with me from the beginning!  I have had them in front of my camera more than anyone else (excluding my own children).

Harlie and Her Gorgeous Mom and Dad If you have read my story about why Photography plays such an important role in my life, you know that my beautiful mother has suffered much in her life. As it stands currently my mother has a hard time walking (amongst other things) due to the stroke she had many years back. And she struggles with speech and comprehension due to a Brain Tumor she was born with and multiple that have appeared throughout her life. She has always been a stubborn, strong willed, and independent woman. Since having her Stroke she is limited and it forces her to need help even when she refuses to ask for it. Being around my ...
