photographer spotlight: mindy johnson – three little birds

are you ready for some visual eye candy? today’s photographer spotlight comes from an on-location photographer from Utah, Mindy Johnson. I first saw Mindy’s work through a random clicking to her blog and immediatly wanted to see more of her photos. her ability of capturing just the right moment is superb and the colors in her processing are beautiful. to read more about Mindy, check out her blog or her portfolio.


what first sparked your interest in photography:
flipping through my mom’s childhood albums. i can’t tell you how many times i snuck into the drawer that held her little picture books.what was your first camera:
for my 8th birthday my grandma got me a little purple kodak point and shoot (still have it.) as far as SLR’S go, my first camera was a Cannon 20D.favorite thing to photograph:
children. they are so open, honest and full of life. they encompass everything i love.favorite artist/photographer:
too many to pick from but lately i really love this girl!most memorable advice you’ve been given:
don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t.advice you’d give starting or aspiring photographers:
make sure you leave a piece of yourself with each of the photographs you’ve taken. don’t shoot just to shoot, make sure your art means something (even if it is only to you.)favorite color:
more like favorite color combos. my two faves are white on white, and the combination of blue and yellow.if you could eat only one thing:
strawberries, i love strawberries!!! chocolate dipped strawberries, strawberry shortcake, strawberries straight from the garden (you get the idea.)something you can’t live without:
my children.on repeat from your headphones:
“Falling in Love at a Coffee Shop” by Landon Piggwhat inspires you:
beautiful paintings, day dreams, lyrics, vintage picture books & nostalgia and light.
