About Me

Hi, my name is Michelle Kemp, I am a full time mother of three beautiful children (6, 9 and 1 year). As well as the wife of the most handsome, loving and supportive husband. The wee hours left over...I am releasing my artistic energy into photography!

I am an on location natural light photographer located in Pleasant Grove, UT. I eat, sleep, and breath photography. There is something about catching the sweet memories we have together...having something to look back on to remember...it makes me smile! Thanks to the encouragement of my amazing husband as well as my wonderful family and friends, I am excited to announce the beginning of Rusty Bucket Photography! This has been a life long dream of mine becoming a reality! Why the name Rusty Bucket? A rusty bucket is full of character, colorful, showing all its beauty in the life lived! This, is my passion, capturing the "rusty bucket" in all of us! So...enjoy the blog...if you like what you see...send me line!

October Harvest...

This was an absolute ball! On a whim...we grabbed an old wash bucket...Jocelyn...the camera...and a few friends for giggles! As the sun began to set...we raced out to the field and began shooting...the weather couldn't have been more perfect...I could have taken pictures all night...she sure loved playing in that old wash bucket!

Out in the Sticks...

Well...the same day we got some great pics of Jocelyn...Brody had a great time...and of course...the camera followed...Grandma's house is so much fun!

"Jeffrey" Hendriks...

Watch out girls...here comes our very own "Jeffrey" Hendricks! We had so much fun on this shoot...he wasn't afraid to ham it up...or to get serious...so those girlys can drool over him...can't wait for your up and coming album "Jimmy!"

Even After 61 Years...

This last Monday Grandma and Grandpa Kemp were so generous to let me invade their privacy with shots of their every move....and boy am I glad they did. My biggest goal in taking pictures...is to capture a feeling...an emotion...and this they shared so well. They're faces tell it all...happy 61 years of a beautiful marriage...thank you.

The Start of a Dream...

One day my sweet sister-in-law called to see if I'd take their family pictures...huh? I'd never done this before! But I jumped at the chance...portrait photography has been a life long dream of mine...and I wasn't going to miss this opportunity to take pictures of such a beautiful family!

What do ya get with full bellys...a good nights rest...and funny momma...happy boys...

Ever since...I haven't stopped taking pictures...of EVERYTHING...hence the beginning of a dream...thank you Emery!

Rusty Bucket Photography...

OK guys...this is the beginning of yes...Rusty Bucket Photography! I've decided to begin a photography site/business...and well thanks to so many sites that have inspired me....I have decided to advertise through this blog. The reason for Rusty Bucket Photography...basically is what it is...timeless, and full of character! I want to catch the personality, and character...and freeze it...creating a timeless memory that will last through the years.
