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!

Tingy Family...

From Rusty Bucket Photography

Seriously...can you get anymore beautiful? Amidst the cold and random requests of myself...they were all smiles! So much fun to be around...made me wish we could have hung out longer!

I could have followed little Kaden around all day...so many funny faces and cute smiles!

My goodness, Sophia was a complete doll...she froze her little fingers off...but was still happy to smile and coo...especially when she'd see her sweet momma...

....her brother...

...and her daddy!

By the end of the day...we had some great photographs of a beautiful family who sure loves each other...even when it hurts! Thank you Tingys!

What's sweeter then a dad wanting pictures of him and his boys! These guys were way too much fun...and so smiley! As I am still so new at this...the boys were incredibly accomodating at my crazy requests...and patient with my follies...but what a great time!
