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!

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!

Zach is going on a Mission!

What a pleasure it has been in the past year and a half to photograph and get to know (as much as you can through photography sessions) this handsome young man!  It all started with Zach’s Senior portraits at the end of last school year, then we took his family portraits, and then we photographed the Wayment family (his mother’s side, and then the large England family. (his father’s side).. and now we’ve come full circle back to Zach and his missionary portraits!  What I have learned about him is that he is kind to others, honors his parents, courteous, considerate, shy, humble, driven, and obediant, and because of those traits will be a wonderful missionary!  Zach also loves being in front of the camera!  Ok that last part is not true… but obviously he is good at it, because they look awesome!  Zach our prayers will be with you, have a wonderful mission!

 

 

 

 

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!:)

 

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!

 

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!

 

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!
