Ward Family Photos Slideshow August 23, 2009

Last week the entire Ward family descended on Utah and we had a fabulous time.  One of the definite highlights was our family photo shoot with Justin Hackworth Photography.  After you get a glimpse of some of these photos, you’ll definitely see why we highly recommend Justin.  He’s awesome to work with and produces unforgettable photos, no flash required.

On Tuesday, we picked Stephanie up from the airport and drove to downtown Provo to Justin’s studio for the first round of individual/couple pictures.  Then we piled in the car and Justin led us to this industrial park where we took the remainder of our photos.  It was perfect!  Here’s a sampling…










Aren’t they unbelievable?  If you can’t get enough, click here to see a slideshow of some of the best pictures from the photo shoot with Justin Hackworth.


Keane Concert with Mat Kearney May 30, 2009

For Tim’s birthday, I treated him with tickets to the Keane concert!  I bought the tickets the moment they went on sale and we got terrific seats.  It was an AMAZING show!  Mat Kearney, whose new song Closer to Love is on the radio right now, opened for them and was really good — just good, chill music that’s easy to listen to.  On Mat Kearney’s tour blog, they said of the show, “The show tonight was the best one yet.  Mat and the band sounded amazing.”  Here’s some pictures and video we took of the show in case you missed it.

Mat Kearney opening:



I wanted to crop this man’s head… but I don’t have a cropping machine.

I was amazed at how theatrical Keane was in their performance style.  The singer, Tom, used his arms a lot — exhibit A!  And have you ever seen a keyboardist headbang?  Well theirs did!  And didn’t miss a note, amazingly!  They were absolutely amazing.  Kept us on our feet the entire time.


Here’s a video clip of Try Again:





If you aren’t familiar with either Mat Kearney or Keane, do yourself a favor and get acquainted!  It’s excellent happy music.  You’ll be happy you did.

infrared photo shoot April 14, 2009

This weekend, I had the pleasure of participating in a photo shoot with Ethan Killian and Jennel McCoy at Sunset Beach at the Great Salt Lake.   Something that sets these photographers apart from the crowd is their flair for infrared photography which alters the colors of the subjects clothing, hair, eyes, etc.

Here are some of our favorites shots:






Special thanks to Adrienne Tougas for the awesome hair and makeup!

Apparently in this photo by Jennel I resemble Angelina Jolie.

I DID It! I applied for America’s Next Top Model March 10, 2009

Thank you for your incredible feedback and support about applying for America’s Next Top Model.  After much deliberation and conversation, I took the leap and applied!

It was an arduous process (story to come) which involved a subzero swimsuit photo shoot, plus filming the video application, plus a 15-page application/contract, not to mention the incredible effort of sending the package with Murphy’s Law and miracles interlaced between.

In the meantime, here are my submission photos. Kudos to the three incredible photographers that helped get these pictures ASAP for the application.

I was SO close to submitting this one instead though, but realized it needed to be a full length swimsuit pic. Oh well, great one for the portfolio

Tim March 3, 2009

tim-and-libertyAs I have been contemplating the Sarah+Tim blog, it occurred to me that I may need to rename it… since all I ever do is talk about myself! So, here is a post devoted to Tim, the man I love 🙂

Over Christmas, Tim and I had the chance to fly home for the holidays. One of the most memorable segments of the trip was our family photo shoot, by Kai Wong Photography. Thanks to three and a half feet of snow on the groundm, the shoot was under house arrest – but let me tell ya, you’d never know it from the pictures.

We hung up some sheets and used the lamps from the living room and with the help of an extraordinarily talented photographer, got some KILLER PHOTOGRAPHS.

Tim is an absolute natural in front of the camera. Exhibit A.


And now as Harry Potter:



Church History Museum August 17, 2008

This week, Tim and I had a chance to be chaperons at Youth Conference.  Our first day, we had a National Treasure hunt that started at the Church History Museum on Temple Square in Salt Lake City.  Here are some of our favorite memories:

Holding onto the Iron Rod on the path to the Tree of Life.  L to R: Candice, Tim, Quinton, Brady, Liz & our resident Brazilian, Manuel.

Brady standing next to a replica of the framing of the Salt Lake City tabernacle supporting the impressive roof without any pillar support – a whopping 9 feet across!

One of the highlights of the visit was spent in the kids area.  Here they are rubbing the CTR symbol in multiple languages including Arabic, Korean and Cambodian.

My impressive rubbing skills.

Liz, me & Candice sitting in chairs intended for littler people.

An impressive three dimensional painting of the prophet Joseph Smith.  The real-live arches added a lot!
