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! Thank you guys for a great night enjoying our oddly warm weather and beautiful sunshine! #capitolhill #downtownsaltlakecity #saltlakecity #saltlakecityphotographer #family #familyphotography #outdoorfamilyphotography #utah
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'
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
I always love that awkward moment when I walk onto a location for a shoot, I have no idea what my client looks like, and there are a zillion photographers standing around waiting for their clients to show up - and I feel a little bit like I'm on a blind date. But really, my favorite part is that - after I finally figure out who my client is in said situation - for the next hour and a half, I get to spend time talking to them, getting to know them and when we leave I know I w
This was such a bittersweet photo shoot...it has been such an incredible blessing to walk with this family during their time here in Salt Lake. We have done so much laughing, some crying, and everything in between. It's heartwrenching to think that they won't be a couple miles away anymore, but rather a couple of states away. But how sweet the time we have had has been! I'm so glad that you brought your family out here, you've shared your love and life with us and we will be
Watching this little girl get bigger and chunkier is the BEST! I can't believe it, Squish, but you're a 1/2 year old! Too bad we didn't have the snow we wanted for this Christmas-y shoot, but you are still ridiculously cute anyway!! #libertypark #downtownsaltlakecity #saltlakecityphotographer #saltlakecitywedding #saltlakecity #infantphotographer #infantphotography #outdoorfamilyphotography #familyphotos #familyphotographer #familyphotography #youngfamily #christmas2018 #chri
There is very little news that is more exciting than.... A BABY IS ON THE WAY! Ahh! We are so absolutely thrilled for this wonderful family who is expecting their second child! Adding the first to their family through the beautiful process (albeit difficult and oftentimes discouraging) of adoption, and expecting to add their second in the same way, God totally threw them a surprise!! How awesome is God?? I was so excited to be able to take these pictures for them. I hope you
It's such a wonderful thing to see a woman's beauty reflected in her children. I got to spend a lovely evening with this sweet family - and it was such a joy! Great weather, great people, and a sweet car! Thanks to their family friend bringing over his 1937 Studebaker - ahh! So much fun. Thank you, guys, for such a fun night! #saltlakecityphotographer #saltlakecity #bountiful #familyphotos #outdoorfamilyphotography #familyphotographer #familyphotography #fall2018 #fallphotogr
