Our Thorne boys are Lookin’ Sharp!

Valentine’s day was awesome for me!  I went with my buddies Bryce and Aiden, (and their mom Trina, who is my friend:) to the Ogden temple.  Bryce is turning 8 soon and getting baptized, and Aiden is turning 12!  Such wonderful accomplishments!  I’ve watch these two grow up… literally.  I moved into my house almost a year before Aiden was born.  For about the first year and a half of Aiden’s life I sat by him in church and rubbed is fuzzy head for luck… his hair was so soft!  And my boys love Bryce!  They could play with him forever.  We love their family and especially these sweet boys!!  Congratulations on your choices fellas!  We are very proud of you!


And then he was 8… and Baptized!

My sweet little Garrison was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints on Saturday.  I’m so proud of my sweet little man.  It’s great to be 8! He had a bit of a rushed start as a preemie baby, sick in the ICU, early intervention, Sped pre-school… and now he’s doing so well.  He likes to read, he’s very good at math, he loves his drama class, and he is wild about anything that moves!!  He says he’s going to the moon… which would be very cool…. however, the rest of us see him as a zoologist, and more specifically an entomologist, ’cause he sure loves those bugs!!  (It’s true he is currently carrying around his jar of caterpillars anxiously waiting for them to turn to chrysalids, lol.)

I’m so proud of this little fighter!  He’s made such a big, important decision.  I know as he continues to Choose the Right his testimony will grow and he will one day be a wonderful missionary!  Until then here’s my little Baptism boy… and some cute brothers too!


Faerber Family Fun

For the past couple of years my son Charlie has played soccer with his friend Luke Faerber.  Last year they played for Wasatch, and this year they both started playing for Athletico.  Anybody that has a kid in a competition sports know that you spend A LOT of time going to practices and games!  During one of those games I met Luke’s lovely grandma Rayanna who asked me to Photograph Her, and her husband, with all of there kids and grandkids.  I love working with large families!  I love the dynamics of all their different personalities, the energy of the kids, and I love making heirloom portraiture they can always treasure! Thank you Rayanna for letting me be a part of making these beautiful memories!


Dasek’s Do it Again!!

We succeeded in taking a Fall Portraits!!  Wahoo!!  I think my kids have gotten use to freezing smiles on their faces while I run back and forth to the camera.  This year was a bit easier then running around the park after my 3 year old like I did last year, trying to get a decent shot!:)  Now if we can just work on Alex letting us do his hair right away instead of chasing him around the house for 15 min. so we could leave on-time, pictures would be a dream!  It can be daunting, but we did it!!  I’ve already started getting my mounted prints!  Metals come today and my canvas on Thursday!  Merry early Christmas to me!!


The McCumbers

I’ve known Mary Gillins McCumber since my family moved to Utah from Arizona.  She lived behind me. We played together as kids and then she moved away and we saw less and less of her.  A few years ago her new, small, family moved back from the east where Mary became an ER doctor, and we began to get together again for summer BBQs and Christmas parties, picnics and lunches.  It’s been so much fun getting to know you again Mary, and so much fun spending time with your beautiful family and capturing these beautiful moments!   Until next time!


Homecoming 2017

I had so much fun a couple weeks ago taking photographs of a beautiful couple and their lovely friends for Homecoming.  What a fun evening to have a photoshoot as part of the date before the Homecoming dance!  These photographs were so fun to make!  I love the idea of having your high school dance pictures taken professionally outside of the school.  It’s makes them unique and something you will always remember.  Thanks Sabrina and Brennen.  It was so fun for me to be part of your night!!


The Larson Family

In September I was privileged to photograph the England’s.  An extended family group of 9 families and I was able to take portraits of many of those families that day. However, before I was done with all the portraits that needed to be take it got dark and so we extended that session to make sure we had beautiful portraits of Camie Larson’s family.  I’m so glad we met again to take them, they look great!


Athletico for the win!!

On Friday was another soccer game.  Grey and rainy all morning, but most of that cleared out so we could enjoy our Athletico boys against AYSO United once more!  If my memory serves we won 7 to 4…. I think… what matters is they had fun!!  Always great to watch these games, see them improve, and have fun with an excited crowd!  Until next time… Athletico, Ole, Ole Ole!!!


The Whole England Clan

So for the past couple of weeks I’ve gone out with my family on multiple occasions trying to find the perfect location for the extended family of a dear sweet friend of mine, Alison England… and one evening we found it!!  Beautiful colors, grasses, trees, and especially, mountains!!  What a beautiful place to spend a lovely afternoon taking photographs a wonderful people.  And Wow!! Did you see that family photograph? The one with all the families!!  Isn’t it awesome!  Thank you England family for a wonderful day!  I hope we do it again soon!


Meet the Wayment Family

Last spring I had the opportunity to photograph Allison and Brian England and there family.  Just a couple weeks ago, I was privileged to photograph the Wayment side of the family, which was Allison’s extended family.  What a fun experience for me!  I love getting to know new families and having fun with all the crazy kiddos… and this family had quite a few kiddos!  What great kids, and beautiful families! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of such a fun night! I hope you all enjoy your portraits!
