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!!

Memory Lane

A couple weeks ago I went down to Murray Park in Salt Lake City and photographed the extended family of one of my dearest friends, Carrie Jensen Sawyer.  I love the Sawyers! … and the Jensen’s! and the Clarke’s! and the rest of the gang!  We grew up next to each other, played together, went to church activities together, and went to dates together.  However it’s been awhile since I’ve seen the whole family… and all of their beautiful kids!  I was so excited I was invited to come and photograph such an amazing family!  Thank you so much!  So good to see you all!

 

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!

 

 

 

Thomsons… Bribery… Weeds… and… Moana!

I had the privileged of photographing the Thomson’s again this year… so fun!!  We went to Kays Creek Parkway, which is packed with photographers this time of year, but we were able to get some beautiful images and have a great time doing it!  (Well we might have gone 15 minutes too long for dad, lol:)  It was a fun filled night of pulling weeds out of the way, bribing kids with fruit snacks, more pulling weeds out of the way, bribing with graham crackers… there might have been some more pulling weeds out of the way… then a bit of a puppet show… and even some viewing of the movie Moana!  It was so worth it!  We made fun memories and beautiful images!  Can’t wait until next time!  Thanks for the fun night Thomson family!  PS next time I’ll remember scissors to help with getting the weeds out of the way!:)

 

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!
