Because they love their Grandpa
Posted by Stephanie On August 3, 2019
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!!
Such Beautiful Children
Posted by Stephanie On September 26, 2018
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!
Shakespear’s at the Gardens

It’s so fun to create images for my family. My sister Kaydee’s family is gorgeous! I love being with them, my kids love playing with them, and they make beautiful images! Last year I learned about the Ogden Botanical gardens. There is a row of trees that is perfect for beautiful directional light, and most photographers photograph there because of the many types of beautiful flowers. For Kaydee and Paul’s family we got to give them a little of both areas for variety in there images! I hope you love them because I love them all!:)
Just around the river bend… with the Bowlers!

Years ago I met a little man in nursery at church. His dad had to stay with him often because he had a hard time adjusting, like most 18 month little ones do. One day I brought out the letter mats that locked together like puzzle pieces, and made them into a trail. He watched what I was doing pretty intently, and then smiled and laughed as I started skipping along them. After that my little friend Cameron was hooked. He followed right behind me (because it was so fun of course;) and he had a great time in nursery everyday after… well, mostly from what I remember;)!
I love this Bowler family! We’ve taken Cameron’s pictures, maternity pictures, Lincoln’s baby pictures, and more studio family pictures. Now Cameron is 4 and Lincoln is 1 year old! I really am in denial about it, but it was time for family pictures again! I hunted for an awesome place to take pictures in early spring and Brittany loved the path below Nichol’s park in Kaysville. I’ve shot there before in the summer and in the fall, but never the spring… and never with a river. It is all dried up by the summer. So fun to be able to get some beautiful environmental portraits of the awesome family with the winding river! I’ve loved photographing you guys. Can’t wait to do it again!

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!
Little Angel Turns 1!

I love to take photographs of children, so a couple weeks ago when Jamie Brand called me to take her daughter Amelia’s 1 year photographs, I was so excited! What a sweetie! I sometimes forget how it is to have someone that small! My kids are getting too big, and even my 3 year old doesn’t let me call him my baby any more! So sad! This session was so much fun for me! Jamie had lots of balloons, and we blew bubbles, and we even got to sing and dance to Moana!! A lot!! What could be better!! lol! Happy Birthday little Amelia! You are such a beautiful girl!!
Beautiful Mama on a Drizzly Day
Posted by Stephanie On February 20, 2017
Brittany’s maternity session was set up for Friday. Chance of rain was small. It was quite overcast, but it’s been a grey sort of a week. About an hour before the session it started to drizzle, then rain. No problem! We rescheduled for the next day! There wasn’t any rain in the forecast so we were in the clear… until 15 minutes after we got there when the rain started… no kidding!! It was a grey, chilly, drizzly, photoshoot. However, I don’t think Brittany’s portraits could be more beautiful. What a lovely beautiful mama she is! I’m so excited to meet little man number 2 and take some more pictures! Welcome to the all boys club Bowlers!!
