I love when I get to photograph one of my St. George friends! This girl and I go way back and she is such a sweetheart! When her family got out of the car my jaw about hit the floor–so beautiful. It was so fun to spend time with them and see the special, sweet relationship they have with each other. And this Dad–he was so chill and happy and cool with whatever odd thing I asked of him, it was the best! Love you Brandi, and your sweet family!
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.
I love Newborn Photography. Kudos to all the newborn photographers out there, you guys are amazing! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…there’s not much sweeter than holding someone that just came Earth-side. I don’t usually do newborn sessions, but I couldn’t pass up on my sweet friend and her gorgeous little angel! I’m so glad I did too because come on, look at these pictures! Pure heaven right there. I just love being able to see these sweet families grow & witnessing how their dynamic changes. All the heart eyes!!!
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’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 sweet little angel came earth-side in the quiet hours of the morning. It was so beautiful to be there and witness the miracle of a new little person being born! I’ve been waiting for this day to come with anticipation and excitement, and then it all happened so fast I barely made it in time!
It’s hard to put into words the amazing feelings I have when I photograph a birth, and I’m just so grateful to this tiny baby girl’s parents for trusting me enough to share those moments with them.
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!
I don’t do newborn photography a lot, so I forget how good it is for satisfying my baby cravings! This little tiny sweet thing was such a dream. Her mom says she never cries and is so content. It was amazing. Almost made me want another one! Almost. She was such a little angel, she slept so good for me, and I was able to get some great shots for her mama. Look at that sweet little smile!
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!
This beautiful girl is one of my good friends and I was so excited to capture her glowing beauty before her life forever changed! I love lifestyle photography. There is something so special about photographing someone in the comfort of their own home. I feel like it gives the images more meaning to the people in them. They can look at back at them and be transported back to that time in your life and the feelings that you had. I love the simplicity of these images, and also her hair is to die for.
