One of my favorite things about doing family photography is when you find that joke, that silly face, that game - whatever it might be - that really gets you to connect with the kiddos. Then, I not only feel like I got my job done, but I also made a tiny friend (or friends). I don't think I could ever go back to wedding photography after spending so much time with these awesome families, their unique and delightful children, and the joy that comes from all of it. Thank you al
Every photo shoot brings it's own unique-ness. Especially when you have kids involved...which is most often the case with family photography. Sometimes the kids loooooove the camera. They can't get enough of it. Sometimes they're just embarrassed that it's there. And every once in a while, you have that kid who would rather curl up in a ball and die than be photographed. Now, as a family photographer, I've gotten pretty good at getting kids to come out of their shell. I've go
I feel like every time I hang out with these people, I get a time of good friendship...and also a comedy show! Oh my goodness, my abs hurt so much from how much I laughed! So much fun!

You never know how popular a photography spot is until you show up at Golden Hour on a Saturday night! Goodness sakes alive! But it was quickly forgotten when we started taking pictures and I got the visit and connect with this wonderful family! And who couldn't connect with a cute baby like this around?? She was easily the center of attention with good reason! But who could forget Man's Best Friend? I always love it when the furry friends join the shoot! Thank you guys for h
Those last few weeks of pregnancy are absolutely the WORST....so close, yet so far...but this lady handles it with style, poise and grace! It's so exciting to be so close to welcoming another little boy into this wonderful family! I can't wait to get those newborn pictures up for you all (or, as Faith would say, "Y'all" ;) ) - hopefully only a couple more weeks and we will meet that sweet little guy!! How many votes for a Redhead?? Anyone feel like taking a guess? ;)
I remember when I first took pictures for this family...it was just the two boys and they needed school pictures. We took them at a park and then their mom and I ended up talking for a bit afterward....suddenly, the boys started screaming and running (never a good sign) and it didn't take us long to realize that the eldest one had inadvertently found a wasp nest! So we all booked it in the direction of the car, trying to leave the wasps in our wake and not get stung. We didn'
I cannot believe how quickly a year goes by. This girl entered this world with a bang 5 weeks earlier than her expected due date, and she is going to conquer the WORLD! What a fun, sweet, smiley little girl - I just can't tell you how much I have enjoyed her Milestone Shoots this past year! It was so fun to have Mom and Dad suggest we do her One Year Shoot at Log Haven - the same place they got married and try to replicate a few of the wedding photos I did for them! SO much
Well, when you have two little girls born a week apart, you end up bombarding your own blog for a couple of days!
When we started thinking about having kids, never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that we would have three girls. I always thought it would be boys, boys, boys and I was perfectly content with that plan. Little did I know how different God's plan was from my own. And how absolutely terrified I was when our first child was born and the doctor said, "I
I love family photos, but every once in a while my brain just needs a break and to do something just a tiny bit out of the norm. So, I decided to ask my friend if she wanted a quick shoot so that I could just get out of my own head for a little while. I'm so thankful I did! Such a fun night - now that the weather is warming up and the sun is out, it is just so beautiful outside! And what a better way to spend it than with these two! Enjoy! #rosepark #utah #saltlakecityphotogr
