Oh my goodness. I had such a blast chasing this little firecracker around! I always love meeting families in parks or out in nature, but it's even more fun when I get to join a family in their own home and their own backyard! I feel like those images carry so much more nostalgia when you get to look back - remembering the kids playing on the playset or jumping in puddles. It's just so beautiful! Thank you for having me to your home and treating me like family for an evening!
I remember my senior portraits....my mom tried to make me a special outfit for my photo shoot - but despite her best efforts, we ended up going to the clothing store instead. I braided my hair the night before, but didn't wash it, so it looked really greasy the day of and we had to put baking soda on it to tone down the shine....but most importantly, I had to have my horse. He was the most important thing to me and the most iconic part of my middle and high school years. Ridi
Wow, I can't believe how time flies. I love doing a series of pictures for clients -whether that be annually or every few months, like this. Just to see how families grow and change is such a blast! It seems like it was just yesterday that this little gal came out 5 weeks earlier than she was supposed to. And now, here she is! A squishy, squirmy smiley little pudge! I love it! I can't wait to see how much you grow again in a few months , Monroe! #utahphotography #downtownsalt
I love doing shoots for GIANT families like this. To think of the impact that two people can have on the world - it's astonishing. Just seeing three generations together is absolutely wonderful. I asked Mrs. Kirby how long they had been married and when she told me 43 years, I was just ecstatic. I love that! More than four DECADES together! That's a full decade longer than I have been alive! I can only hope and pray that my husband and I will be blessed with as many years , a
It's amazing to me how quickly time flies. I took this awesome family's pictures four years ago when I was just getting back into photography after moving to Salt Lake. And now, I could hardly recognize them! It always encouraging to see siblings who get along so well (at least in public ;) ) and parents who can still laugh and have fun. Each family I work with is so unique and different, it's always a joy to spend time with them! Thank you for letting me be a part of your fa
With the colors turning, it's been a really busy few weeks over here! But I loved getting out on a day that threatened rain all weekend, but gave us a reprieve so that we could do this shoot! Woo hoo! October can be such a finicky month out here in Utah - 7 years ago when I married my husband, it was 80 degrees on October 15th. The following year I'm pretty sure we got snow. You just never know! But this year has been different - color in the mountains, but down in the valley
On one of the last warm mornings as of late, we got out early and enjoyed a warm breeze in Neff's Canyon! And these colors, wow! So beautiful! It's hard to believe fall is here already - it seems like the year just started! And I'm sure for these parents of this busy little guy feel the same way! Time flies when you're having fun! So much fun chasing an 18 month old little fiery red-head around! Boy, he's got some go! And so many great Mom and Son shots - if only I had pictur
One of my favorite moments this year happened a couple weeks ago. I got a call to say that my good friend had finally proposed to his fantastic girlfriend! I was over the moon excited. Not only that, but she told me they were going to be married in less than two weeks!! AHH!
It was my absolute pleasure to be there as a witness of their union, and to be privileged to take their photos of their awesome day! I couldn't have been happier - and I think they were just a little h
I always love doing photos for big and growing families! There is nothing more joyful than watching grandkids with their grandparents, playing and laughing. Or seeing siblings tease and laugh with one another. I love that my job let's me be a part - albeit a small part - of the inside jokes, the playing and the stories. Thank you, guys, for having me capture your memories this year! You are wonderful and I loved spending time with you! #utahphotography #summer2018 #familyphot
We are surrounded by wildfires in Utah right now, but in spite of that we still got some beautiful family photos for these guys! I have been so fortunate to take these guys' family pictures every year for the past two years, and this year makes THREE! I love the fun and energy kids bring to a photo shoot - one reason I absolutely love family photography! But it gets so much easier and fun when you get to take a family's pictures year after year - you get to see them grow and
