This one was not featured in the latest issue of Conceptual Magazine, but I still love it. Shooting in hard direct light is something I have struggled with. I have to FORCE myself to do it. I just was so keen on that creamy backlight... I am working on always pushing myself outside my comfort zone. What are you working on?⠀
P.s. The juniors did AMAZING last night at their floor show. Good job everyone! And..... congrats to my girl @jordynnaef for being awarded prom queen!! You deserve it!!! Model: @hannahfitmom
Many of you know that I have been a distributor for SeneGence, selling mostly LipSense. LipSense is an amazing product. I don't know of any lipstick that comes close to being as great as it is. But it's time for me to move on. I will still stay a distributor for my own discount and sell to close family and friends but it is not my main focus anymore!
The lovely Kati introduced me to Maskcara. This company is amazing!! The packaging is amazing, no putting my own money into inventory that sits in my house until someone wants colors I have, and the list goes on and on!! What is Maskcara you may ask? It is a 3D contoured foundation, you put on one layer!! All of it is contained in one pallet. It takes 10 minutes to apply! That's 10 minutes for you whole face.
My website is www.maskcarabeauty.com/shelbyjohnston
Message me with questions or if you want help color matching!
For the past two months I have been working with the junior class here in Soda springs Idaho on their prom floor show. For those of you who had no idea what floor show is when I said that..... no worries. I didn't know until recently either. Basically about an hour into prom they all gather on the floor and perform a dance number for all of their parents and friends. Crazy right?!? It had been such a rewarding and memorable experience to choreograph it for them. They have worked so hard and long for this, and it is tonight!⠀
I am headed to shoot an amazing concept with the talented @ericastallings and @isissrodriguez today in pocatello which I CAN'T wait to share. Then back home to watch the show. If you are in the area come show them some support! Good luck everyone, thank you for working hard and being awesome🙌🏻
Anyone else hate being late?!? I do, and yet it seems like it happens to me more often than I want. This morning was rough. Turned off two alarms after a sick little one all night. The worst part about being late is it throws off the whole day. I was only 20 minutes late to where I needed to be but then it carried over to the next thing, and the next... Anyone have suggestions on how to be on time more? I joke that I am an optimist and just think I can fit more things into a shorter amount of time; usually resulting in me being late. My thought process.... 'Ok I have 30 minutes... I can shower, eat, get the kids ready, send an email, probably fit in a quick workout, take care of the dog, and edit a photo or two. '😂😂
Seriously though. Any tips?

Ignore my messy computer screen...life with toddlers am I right?.... but I just love this quote so much. I see it everyday and it reminds me to slow down a little, and remember everything will happen when it is supposed to. I have such a passion for my photography, but not much time to do it being a stay at home mom to two toddlers. I just have to remind myself, it's not that I can't, but that I have to keep my priorities straight... Mom and wife first, work and play second. I can do anything, but not everything. It's all about balance.
I am going to be in Oregon in a month! I can't wait to get my dose of the ocean air. I am a oceanaholic. Seriously though. I could fall asleep to the sound of waves every night. Do you have a favorite place? Where is it?
P.s. I shot this on my iPhone.... crazy right?!? Phones these days are crazy!!!!
Yellow curry last night was amazing. Clogging it all off in a dance class this morning:) I have missed clogging so much well dancing in general actually. Just found out about a dance film workshop near me and am thinking of signing up. Anyone else in Utah or Idaho going to the Dance for film action workshops in June?⠀
Do you keep a journal? I try to write in mine at least once a week, but sometimes it just doesn't happen. My new ideas for shoots, things to try, insecurities, fears, funny things, goals, failures all go into it. All of it. It is always rewarding to go back and read older entries, and see how things actually turned out that I was stressed about, or see how I have grown. ⠀
I used to be that journal writer that would apologize for the first half of the entry about how long it had been since I last wrote. I would remorsefully renew my vow to write more often and be better. Every time feeling that I had let myself down for taking so long between entries. Ahh... the guilt.⠀ Now I just write when I can, even if it is just a sentence. We already have so many ways the world tells us we are not good enough... why do it to ourselves?
My new favorite corner in my house.... It may not look comfy, but with a good book and blanket I crave it... I also took a little afternoon nap here the other day. I am a napper..... on a side note... I love DIY decorating. I painted this chair after nabbing it for $10, the fabric is a little stiff but it works ! The curtains are two panels of twin sized flat sheets sewn together, and the curtain rods are long wooden dowels, with ottoman legs and wooden buttons for the ends.... I'll post a short video of it in my stories since the photo got cropped off the top. The light is printer paper. All pretty cheap to make in the end. I have not been able to craft big stuff in a while, so I look forward to the warmer months to get some stuff done!!!
Prom is just around the corner and @trendyandtrue has an amazing selection!!!! Go check them out in pocatello! I love this navy one with floral so much. So unique.
Excited to have this girl on my spokesmodel team!!
I woke up this morning and walked out my front door to all of our beautiful tulips starting to bloom! I will be hanging out on my front steps as much as possible the next few weeks. 🌷
Weekly Album Sale is TONIGHT in my shop group and I have new prints in that are almost as pretty as these flowers 🙃 Seriously, gorgeous new florals, solids and paisley prints to name a few. Come check it out 💕
