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!

Sincerely,
Michelle Bratt Kemp

Now this is love...Olsen Family Peek!

From Our Thoughts

Christian & Nicholas...


Recently I had the opportunity to do a quick shoot with my husband's cousins Christian and Nicholas. I love doing shoots with close friends and family because I get to see sides of them I've never seen before...and I can relax a little...because they already know me...it's just more of a fun laid back process. This was the case with Christian & Nicholas as well! My sister-in-law Kassie (also photographer) visiting from Arizona, came a long and was a fantastic help! Wish I could have her on all my shoots! Thanks guys...hope you like!!!

Meet the Anderson Family!!!

From Everyday Mojo
Meet the Anderson family...full of life...talent and fun!! As you can see there are three boys and one girl...cars are a big part of this family...the Bug in the background was a project that turned out amazing!!! You'll see it in another picture too!
Often on a shoot...and those who have already been on one with me can agree...I get my nerves all worked up...and I either walk into...or fall over random standing objects...or say some of the most random off the wall comments...and usually con jumbled...in the Anderson's case...it was the random comments...they were sweet and nodded politely...I'm sure I ran into something as well...but thank goodness they decided to hang in there with me...because I think we were able to get some awesome shots!!! And golly...aren't they beautiful!!! Thank you Anderson family!

Meet My Cousins...The Tidwell Family!!!

From Our Thoughts
So I have tender place in my heart for this family...as sappy as it sounds...but I just love them!!! So many fond memories as a kid running around their house...water fights in the backyard...movie nights (lots)...and just great times!!! So I can't tell you how excited I was to do their family pictures! And man...I'm so happy with the outcome!

Beautiful Family!!!

From Everyday Mojo
The day for this shoot turned out to be perfect...lighting...time...location...and company...except for one thing...we were missing a few families!!! Having the day picked several weeks in advance...the entire family planned to meet for family pictures....but just hours before the big time several of the grandchildren were sick with the flu!! So unfortunately we were unable to capture the entire family together...but we were able to get some beautiful shots of the rest of the family...they were so fun and easy going...and completely photogenic (something I wish I could be)! Thank you Vie and family! And hopefully soon we'll capture the entire bunch together!!!
