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!

Braden’s Graduating!! How could that be?!

So in 1989 my family moved from Tucson, Arizona to Clearfield, Utah.  Right next door was a girl my age and we became instant friends.  I remember Carrie and I watching Jazz games together, scary movies (like The Changling! Ahhh!), cartoons like Animaniacs,  sewing the same pants, going to district science fairs together, high school dances, choir concerts, weddings, game nights… we’ve been in each other’s lives forever.  She’s one of my very best friends.  Still we are there for each other.  We always get together at the beginning of the year for our birthday celebration at Zupas, lately we’ve been having a summer BBQ on the lake with tubes and paddleboards, at Christmastime Carrie hosts our annual Fondue dinner and dessert. We’ve had wonderful times.

I’ve also been able to watch her 4 beautiful children grow up.  Braden’s one of the oldest of my friend’s kids.  He was born more then 6 years before my oldest so I’ve looked at him, and the way Carrie and Jared have raised him, as an example for my kids.  I’ve been able to watch a small boy who would color all over basement walls with permanent marker and worried his parents to pieces in elementary school to a young man ready to graduate from high school and go on a mission.  He is such a fun, loving, respectful young man.  Carrie and Jared you have such a remarkable boy!  You’ve done such a great job!  Thank you for letting me take his portraits today.  I think he loved it!! lol  I love you Both!

 

 

 

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!

KAYLA

I had fun creating headshots for my Thespian friend Kayla, last Wednesday. There are so many words that describe this sweet girl, that I really couldn’t pick one.  Charismatic, talented, kind, caring, smart, selfless, musical, theatrical, beautiful… so many more.  I’ve known her many years, and have taught her voice lessons and piano lessons for 4 of those years… she is just amazing.  She’s fun to teach, and so willing to learn and to practice, and she has a great desire to succeed.  Her mom teases that she might want to be like me when she grows up; sings, plays the piano, loves theater, just started playing the cello…  The funny thing is if I had a daughter I would hope that she was a little bit like Mackayla Thorne.  Beautiful inside and out.
