Here’s My Family

So every year I think I’m going to get someone else to photograph my family…  would be less stress, and less preparation. I would only have to focus on the clothing, which as you all know can be stressful enough!!  But here we are, another year, and here is my family… photography by me!!  I am so grateful for my beautiful mama who stood by to make sure all eyes are on the camera, and with dog treats ready in hand!  She also happen to dress perfectly in our colors so we could have her in a few images.  We love you Grandma Bonnie!:)

 

 

 

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!

 

 

 

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!

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! !

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!!

 

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.

Sara Arrington FNP

Last week a good friend, and neighbor of mine, said that her sister needed some new headshots.  Sara Arrington is opening Heart and Soul Family medicine on April 5th, so we got out and photographed her right away.  I’d never met Sara before but after a couple hours of being with her I feel like we’re already good friends.  She was kind, gentle with my kids, and you can really tell she cares about you.  I wish her the best in her new family practice!!  Hope we get to do it about really soon!
