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!

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!!

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!

I’ve been photographing this family for a number of years… I believe this is the fourth, and I just can’t handle how fast these kids are growing, especially Rainey. She is long and so adorable, I just can’t handle it! Slow down!
Ok, now that I’ve gotten that out of system… they are all adorable!! The Petersen’s are such great friends! We appreciate their family so much, and I’m so grateful I’ve been able to be a part of capturing these precious moments of their growing adorable children! I am excited for what the future will bring Beautiful Petersen family!

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!

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!:)

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!

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!

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!
