Gray Family

After Christmas I had a fun, snowy session with the Gray family! Their color choice was just beautiful against the white background! As frozen as the kiddos were, I think the photos turned out wonderfully!

Preview

Rudy Family

The Rudy's had originally planned on doing an evening session around Temple Square to get all the beautiful Christmas lights and the lit up temple in the background. Plans changed last minute and we decided to go during the day instead. I must say, I'm glad they did because I just LOVE how these turned out!

Smith Family

A few weeks ago I had a awesome session with the Smith family! I know just about all the young ladies from the gym, but had NO idea they were all related! Anyway, I loved this bunch and thing the photos turned out beautifully!

Preview

Burgoyne Family

Bennion Family

This post of the Bennion's session is LONG overdue! A month or so ago I went through a horrid experience of my external hard drive getting wiped clean! On that hard drive were my images of the Bennion family. They were so amazing and waited several weeks for the images to get professionally recovered. I'm happy to say, they finally have their images!!

Preview

Erekson Family

Early this month I had a beautiful session with the Erekson family! Their children were so cute and full of smiles. They were so excited to get family portraits in the canyon while the wild flowers were still in bloom. What a gorgeous setting!

Preview

Dean Family

I had a great session with the Dean family a couple weeks ago! It's always everyone's "dream" to get their family portraits taken out at The Great Salt Lake. Sunset photos are so fun and pretty! It got super windy during their session, so we didn't get any reflection photos, but that didn't matter. The photos are gorgeous!

Preview

Stubbs Family

I must admit, I love my sister. She sends so many of her amazing friends my way and I love all their families! So here's another fun group that was referred to me by my lovely sister (who of course I'd love regardless if she didn't tell her friends about me ;)

Directly have the Lloyd's session I photographed the Wright family! They JUST had a son come home a couple days prior from serving a two year mission for the LDS church. They are such a beautiful family and were wonderful to work with!

Preview

Lloyd Family

Last month the Lloyd family got together to celebrate their Mother/Grandmother/Great Grandmother's 70th birthday! I could tell that Nella was so proud of her beautiful family. They were such an awesome bunch and great to work with! Here's a look at their session!

Nicole & Josh - Engagements

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing Josh and Nicole for their engagements. What a totally cute, photogenic couple! I really enjoyed working with them. I also loved the different colors of the grass/fields and how Nicole's shirt just makes the pictures pop! Here's a look into their session. Hope you love them!

Raffle Winner

Back in February I took part in a raffle drawing at a Zumbathon Charity Event at the Gene Fullmer Rec Center. All the proceeds went towards my sweet buddy, Mack to help pay for his upcoming kidney transplant. I love this little guy so much, I just had to donate a free family session. Last month the winners claimed their prize! Here's a look at their free session!

Preview

Tindall Family

This is the Tindall family! They are probably one of the first groups that actually went to their location of choice, took pictures of spots they liked and showed me the main areas they wanted their pictures taken. It was fun to see a place I've photographed at a million times in a different perspective. Now I have a few new ideas for the next time I'm there :)

Preview

Extended Gailey Family

This is my amazing family! My brother and his crew were in town for a couple of days, so we took advantage of it and had new portraits taken. I LOVE this photo! I must admit, my mother and family are so grateful to have a photographer in the family. But you know what I'm grateful for?? My tripod and family/friends who can push the shutter button ;) So because I set up the camera and it's setting... yes, I do claim this main photo and even my little individual family as my work! hah

Preview

Ornano Family

A couple of weeks ago I had a wonderful shoot with the Ornano family! Their daughter contacted me telling me she is going on an LDS Mission the beginning of April. She wanted missionary portraits taken, as well as family portraits. Here's what we got!

Preview

Dean Family

After Christmas I had the pleasure of photographing the Dean family! They were in town from Idaho and we chose a gorgeous location that had some fresh snow. I've never taken portraits at this location in the snow... it was sooo pretty!

Preview

Nelson Family

Thanksgiving weekend I had the pleasure of photographing the Nelson family. Even though they were on the larger size of groups I've photographed, they were probably one of the easiest! I'm posting most of the family photos in my beautiful mixed sepia editing. I think the coloring looks so pretty like this with their muted clothing colors and the barren scenery. 

Preview

Lucas Family

Over this past chilly Thanksgiving weekend I had the pleasure of working with the Lucas family! One of the spouses wasn't able to make it to the session, but we still wanted to get a group photo of the family together since they don't all live here in Utah :)

Preview

Jackson Family

Last week I had an awesome shoot with the Jackson family in the snow! We didn't get too much snow here last year, so it was fun to take some portraits in it so early on in the season. The colors they chose looked fabulous against the white landscape, don't you agree?!

Preview

Condrat family

A couple of weeks ago I had a fabulous shoot with the Condrat family! Last year one of their son's purchased a gift card for his parents during his band portrait session. I was super excited to finally do a session with the entire family... including the pups!

Preview

L - Maternity

I am super thrilled so share with you my most recent maternity session. She brought along with her some sample photos she wanted to mimic. A lot of them involved different flowing wraps. I was so excited to test them all out as I haven't done most of these ideas yet! I love L's maternity portraits and hope you all do too :)

Preview

Gettings Family

Last week I had a fabulous shoot with the Gettings family! They were so awesome to make a good 45 min trip to have me take their portraits out on The Great Salt Lake! The Gettings have three handsome boys with great smiles. I love their pictures and hope you all do too!

Preview

Dean Family

Last weekend I had an awesome time photographing the Dean family! They were so fun and outgoing and the youngest little girl was a total diva! She struck all her own poses for me and begged that I'd take some more after we were done. So so cute! I can't believe how gorgeous the fall colors are in the mountains already. If you haven't booked your fall session yet, better hurry fast before you miss out!

Preview

Gilbert Family

Last weekend I had such a great time photographing the Gilbert family! They were so much fun to work with and their kids were so sweet. Believe it or not this is actually my first family session out on The Great Salt Lake! I've photographed several engagement, bridal, and couple portraits, but it was fun to work with an entire family.

Preview

Goldhardt Family

Earlier this week I photographed this good looking bunch at another secret location around the corner from my house! I love that I live in an area with so many old sheds and barns. The colors they picked turned out amazing! I remember the time when stripes and patterns were never suggested in family portraits. I think we can toss that thought out the window!

Preview

Krahenbuhl Family

Last week  I had the absolute pleasure of  photographing the Krahenbuhl family! They're such a great looking bunch and really are so wonderful to work with. I think so highly of them that I told them I would love to adopt myself into their family ;) Here's a peek at what we got with our time together!
