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!

My Sweet Sweet Twin Nieces...

From Collages
It wasn't many days ago that I was lucky enough to snuggle these two beautiful baby girls. Never have I held such tiny babies. What a special time it is to hold them so fresh from Heavenly Father's arms...trusted to my amazing sister & brother-in-law who are wonderful parents. Love you Jodi.

I sit here and try to put to words just how much I love Tanya. And well...I can't. Basically, she is one who has been there...to make me laugh, cry, & laugh some more...helping me remember why life is so wonderful! Love you Tanya.

Two Years Later...

Looking at his little face it's hard to believe he was up in heaven looking down when I was just a newborn myself in photography taking pictures at his mom and dad's wedding...and now nearly two years from when I first did their engagements...I'm able to capture their first little miracle...baby Hayden. Welcome to the world little man! Isn't he just beautiful!
