An Afternoon with the Christensens

I was able to go out with the Christensen family last Friday.  I’ve known Shaundeen for years.  We used to exercise together when our kids were really small and ran their scooters around us in the gym of the church.   We served in the Primary at church together were able to watch our kids begin to form their testimonies of our Savior.  It was so fun to go out with them and capture gorgeous images of their beautiful children at this time in their lives.  They are so talented, so smart, and so kind.   Devon and Shaundeen you have a wonderful family!  Thank you for sharing the afternoon with me!

 

 

A Beautiful Night at the Park

You know when you meet people, and it’s like you’ve known them forever, and then all of the sudden what you are doing is over you realize you really just met them and you might not see them for a long time…  That’s what it was like the other day when I met Adam and Cindy Buck.  Such a great family!!  Adam used to work at the same law firm as my brother-in-law Paul Shakespeare, and got my information from Paul.  Now I’m best friends with the Bucks and all of their children!:)

It was so much fun to take their images last Friday, and now I know of another park that is really close that didn’t have a lot of people!  It was amazing for a Friday night we had the park to ourselves!

Adam and Cindy you have such a beautiful family, and such wonderful kids!  I hope that these images help to capture them now so that you might be able to remember these moments always!!

So wonderful to spend the evening with you Buck family!  I hope you love your images and that we can do it again soon!

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!

Amanda and Trevin

What an amazing night for Amanda and Trevin! They were married in the backyard of beautiful home in east Layton overlooking all of Layton.  The weather was amazing, the bride was perfect, and the food was delicious… and fun thanks to it coming from a food truck!:)  Thank you so much Amanda and Tamika for inviting me to such a wonderful event!  I’m so glad I was able to capture it all!

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!

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!

 

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!

 

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!
