Standing Family 2019

I met a wonderful family the other day, and had the privilege of spending the evening with them and capturing a very special time of their lives. Edward, one of their awesome sons was leaving on a mission a few days later and they wanted to make sure they captured the special time before he left.

What a wonderful family they are! Loving, sweetly sarcastic, respectful and encouraging of one another. It’s because of families like the Standing family that I spend time away from mine during this busy time of year. Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to spend an evening with you! What wonderful people you are!

Another Year Down!!

We did it again!!  I took my families photographs…. again!!  Every year I do this I am soooo very relieved when it’s over!  Yes, I get worried about clothing, and location and hair, and getting there on time… like every other family getting photographed (including my clients;).  However, taking photographs of your own children adds a whole other dynamic…. are they going to listen/ smile/ runaway from mom and play a game like “hide and go seek!?”  Ah!!  Yes to all of that.  We bribe, and bribe, and bribe… and plead!  In the end they usually turn our OK!  (It helps I have beautiful little fellas to photograph!)  Well here goes!  Dasek Family 2019!

And then they had…. a girl!!!

Elanor Jean Bowler was born June 24th, 2019!  Congrats Brittany and Micah, she is beautiful!!  I wished I could keep her!!! (or at least hold onto her for a very long time!)  She is so lovely, and so sweet, and such a good sleeper for photography!!  I’ve known the Bowlers for awhile and I’m so grateful I’ve able to photography there adorable children and there beautiful family!  Thank you guys so much for trusting me with making these memories for your family to love and share!  I’m so grateful that I’ve been able to watch your boys grow, and so excited to watch Elanor grow.  Enjoy every minute, she is such a blessing!

Because they love their Grandpa

After a couple years I was able to take the Schroeder’s portraits again!   Grandpa was in town and they wanted a special extended family portrait as a gift for him.  We met at Kays Creek Parkway and walked up the path to the area on the very north end where I usually like to take portraits.  The path was closed… but we went there anyway!;)  (We’ll do anything for good photographs!!)  Well we braved the construction, and the mosquitos (and there were a lot) but the portraits are gorgeous!  Salina, thanks so much for having me!  I hope we can do it again really soon!!

Headshots

So about 3 o’clock this afternoon I got a call while I was standing in my husband’s favorite fountain pen shop, in his favorite mall (Trolley Square.) We had just gone out for a lunch together, and were taking a little time before he had to get back.  The lovely mother on the phone I answered needed headshots for her kids.  She was hoping around 4.  I told her I was certain it would be fine and I’d call her back as soon as I got back home because I didn’t have my planner.  She sounded confused, but said OK and we hung up.  A second later I looked at my watch, it was now after three and I realized why she was so confused! lol.  I had an hour to get my husband back to work, get through traffic from Salt Lake, (which doesn’t seem to ever be clear anymore.)  I still had to grab my gear, get to the park, and set-up for the photo session!  By 4:30 we were done and by 6 they were all printed and going off to the judges for their auditions!  Such fun beautiful, talented kids.  I’m so grateful it was as clear as it was today so I could meet them!  So excited to meet the rest of your famliy very soon! !

Boys, Boys, Boys!!

  I have all boys, so I feel a special bond with other moms of lego loving, soccer playing boys!!  I had a great time taking their photographs!  Stephanie’s boys are so kind, polite, and helpful.  It was a pleasure to photograph them!  It’s always a little different to me to photograph families of kids 8 and older.  I am so used to making images of families with 1 year olds and 2 year olds…  having kids that were looking at the camera without me having to sing and dance was really quite different, lol:)  and fun!!

So wonderful to spent my evening with you Lindstrom family!!  Looking forward to when we can do it again!

Rainey Stop Growing Up!!!

I’ve been photographing this family for a number of years… I believe this is the fourth, and I just can’t handle how fast these kids are growing, especially Rainey.  She is long and so adorable, I just can’t handle it!  Slow down!

Ok, now that I’ve gotten that out of system… they are all adorable!!  The Petersen’s are such great friends!  We appreciate their family so much, and I’m so grateful I’ve been able to be a part of capturing these precious moments of their growing adorable children!  I am excited for what the future will bring Beautiful Petersen family!

Such Beautiful Children

Look at these beautiful kids!  Such sweethearts!  I had so much fun a few weeks ago taking portraits of these cute little siblings and there cousin.  Photographing children is always full of singing, coaxing, a bit of bribery, and… sometimes crying.  However, if you wait for the right moment you often strike gold.  Aren’t these beautiful children!

 

 

 

Zach is going on a Mission!

What a pleasure it has been in the past year and a half to photograph and get to know (as much as you can through photography sessions) this handsome young man!  It all started with Zach’s Senior portraits at the end of last school year, then we took his family portraits, and then we photographed the Wayment family (his mother’s side, and then the large England family. (his father’s side).. and now we’ve come full circle back to Zach and his missionary portraits!  What I have learned about him is that he is kind to others, honors his parents, courteous, considerate, shy, humble, driven, and obediant, and because of those traits will be a wonderful missionary!  Zach also loves being in front of the camera!  Ok that last part is not true… but obviously he is good at it, because they look awesome!  Zach our prayers will be with you, have a wonderful mission!

 

 

 

 

Bucks Couldn’t Be Anymore Beautiful!

A couple weeks ago I did a photo-shoot with my family and was able to take the images of my sister Becca’s family and all of her kids.  They all turned out so good.  The Ogden Botanical Garden’s has so many beautiful hidden little places to photograph, but really it’s good light that matters, and there is plenty of that too, (and it helps a bit that I bring some along with me!)  I love photographing children, but I think it’s so special to take images of my nieces and nephews and watch them grow.  Such beautiful kids!  Thanks for having me to do again Bucks, they look so great!
