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!

Sneak for Annie...

What a beautiful family! And so great to brave the chilly wind in the air! What seemed so warm and sunny, was just plain cold! Missing the warm February days we had just barely!!!

Hailie and Conner...love love love them!

For what was supposed to be the stormiest day of the month, was the most beautiful morning we could ask for!!! But that wasn't even the best part...Conner and Hailie were a dream to work with! All smiles and definitely in love! If they weren't engaged to be married...I'd suggest they get engaged :) I absolutely had a ball working with these two!!! Can't wait for the big day!

Love My Brother's Family...

Meet my brother and his family of girls! Words cannot express the love I feel for these four. They have sacrificed so much for my own little family. I'm grateful for the chance to raise my children with theirs. I look up to my brother and sister-in-law, and admire their strength and courage. Love you. Love, your little sister.
