It’s been senior picture season around here, so it was fun to change things up and photograph this cute family! We went to this beautiful little park in Lehi that is becoming my new favorite location, and we had so much fun! These cute kiddos have the most beautiful white/blonde hair that glows when the sun shines through it and makes them look like little angels. Here are a few of my favorite shots…
Friends come and go, like the waves of the ocean…but the true ones stick, like an octopus on your face.
Really though. I love these guys. We have been friends for years and they have stuck with us through ups and downs, been there for us, supported us in all of our special times, and also our not so special times. They are an exemplary family that we have tried to model, and I am so grateful to have them as friends.
Over the years we have usually shot outside, but this year I talked them into a lifestyle session in their home. I’m so glad they went for it! We got such great, natural, candid shots that make my heart beat a little faster when I look at them (which is my goal). I absolutely love to document people in their own element. It brings an ease and comfort to the session that you can’t find anywhere else. I hope that one day Asher can look back on these images with his children and say “Hey look, there’s Grandma tickling me on her bed when I was your age!”. Lifestyle sessions are such an amazing gift that I know your family will treasure, and can be passed down through generations.
It’s hard to put into words the sweet feelings that came over me throughout this beautiful lifestyle session. It’s always so amazing and inspiring to go into a home and feel the love that a family has for each other…especially when they have just brought a new little person into their home. This family was so fun to be with. I hope these pictures will help them to always remember the feelings they had when sweet Capri joined their adorable family!
I love family photography. It’s my passion, my favorite type of photography to do. It inspires me to be better with my own family. Especially when I get to be with families like this! Funniest, happiest, sweetest people ever! I’ve known them for about 6 years now and I just can’t get over how cool they are. They are always traveling and going on fun adventures together, spending time with each other, laughing like crazy–I love it. It’s so fun to be around them because they all seriously have the best sense of humor and make me laugh so much. Also I’m pretty sure the mom could write a parenting book and it would be worth gold. She’s amazing. #familygoals
I absolutely loved spending time with this sweet family! They are such genuinely nice people, and you can tell that they all have a really close bond. Their son had come from New York for the holidays, so it was really special to be able to capture them all together. Oh I love photographing families, and seeing their unique dynamics, and their love for each other! It’s so fulfilling to me.
I’ve been doing so many fun holiday sessions, I haven’t had time to keep up on the blog! I met this awesome couple when I was selling some puppies, and I’m so glad I did! They braved the early morning cold for this shoot, and it was so worth it! We went to this gorgeous tree farm, that is one of my new favorite spots for pictures. The sun was shining through the trees, golden and beautiful, and I love how their session turned out. They brought their adorable dog and I could hardly pay attention to anything else because he is the cutest thing! I may have even talked them into letting him father my future pup’s pups! Ha! Hey, I can dream…
It was a beautiful, stormy, breezy day for this session with my sweet friend & her adorable family. I’ve know this girl for years and we have kept crossing paths in life in unexpected ways, until finally she became my neighbor! So fun!
I have loved being able to take their pictures many times…I just can’t get enough of her sweetie’s cute little perfect face! Her little sweetie, not her big sweetie. ha! Love that little almost-2-year-old!
This session. This Family. The light. It was all amazing. And, oh man, I love this girl to pieces. Once in a while you come across someone who inspires you and makes you want to be a better person. She is one of those people. She is so beautiful, inside & out. One of the most genuine, kind, caring people I know. I’m so lucky to have her as a friend!
Side note: Someone may or may not have peed in the field, just saying. And I may or may not have caught that bare bum on camera. Too funny!
It’s time to update the blog! I’ve been sending off a lot of galleries lately, and needed to show off this family! I’m sure that Grandma & Grandpa Turner couldn’t be prouder of this awesome group of beautiful grandkids, and super sweet adults! You can tell they all have a blast together, such a fun family! I loved spending time with them, and all those cute kiddos were a dream to photograph. Such a fun night!
This family is so beautiful…the best people. I have known them for a long time, and I was so excited that they were coming from Idaho and wanted to have a session done! We have been friends for years and supported each other, and I love them to death. We had a blast on this windy evening in “bug field”!
It’s so hard to put into words the feelings I have whenever I photograph a birth story. Each time is so special and unique to the family, and their story, it’s difficult to do it any justice. It’s such an honor to be asked to witness and document these sacred moments. This family is so sweet, and they have such a fun dynamic between them. It was so fun to see the sweet way they interacted with each other, and the special relationship they have. To top it off, they didn’t know the gender of the baby, so those first moments when they found out it was a girl were priceless! Thank you to this beautiful family for trusting me with these special moments, and congrats on that gorgeous little one!
