Liesel - maternity

This gorgeous mama is pregnant again and I was super thrilled to be able to take her maternity portraits again! They drove me out to a beautiful location (a few hours from me!) where we got some stunning photos of Liesel and her darling family <3

Andreasen Family

My session with the Andreasen family has been about a year long process!! With their children all over the globe, it was quite the task finding a date to get all of them together. We started planning last summer and were finally able to take them back in December. Months later, they've finally picked their their proofs! Here's the gorgeous family!

Preview

Johnson Family

Two weeks ago I had a wonderful session with the Johnson family! They were so well behaved, smiled on cue and were all just so adorable! Beautiful beautiful family. So glad I had the opportunity to work with them!

Preview

Monica & Bobby - Engagements

I'm super excited for my cousin Monica and her soon to be hubby!! They are so darling together and make the cutest family! I've never taken pictures in the empty riverbed at this location before.. I love how they turned out. So much fun! :)

Preview

Holbrook Family

This past winter while I was at the State Capitol Building photographing a family, Mr. Holbrook came up and asked if I'd be willing to photograph his family of 50. I excitedly handed him a card and a few weeks later.. there we were with his beautiful family!

Preview

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!

Preview

Atkins Family

Last month my hubby's entire family was in town for Thanksgiving! So obviously we planned a photo shoot! The Capitol Building is a popular place for winter photos if you want to keep warm, and that's where we headed!

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

A few weeks ago I had a fun session with one of my favorite families! By now you should all know that I can't get enough of their son Mack. He recently had a kidney transplant and is doing amazing! I couldn't be happier for their little family <3

Preview

Wilcox Family

I've been photographing several single mommies with their kiddos lately. I have to be honest, I'm enjoying it! These mothers are so strong and amazing. I loved the Wilcox's family session! The girls totally took after their mother. Total sweethearts!

Preview

Dean Family

Last weekend I had a fun session with the Dean family! We caught the last bit of fall color and I'm loving how their session turned out!

Preview

Hoffman Family

A few weeks ago I had another fun session with one of my favorite neighbors! Although, the kiddos and parents didn't think it was all that exciting. There were many sad faces during the session, but you would never have guess by looking at them! This couple makes some pretty adorable children!

Preview

Wiley-Zolnik

Last month I had another beautiful session in the fall leaves. The colors were gorgeous and they were such a fun bunch to work with!

Preview

Hyatt Family

Last month I had an beautiful session! Not too long ago I photographed their daughter for her missionary portraits and then a little more than a year before that I photographed their wedding! Such an amazing family <3

Preview

Keylee - 5 days

Congrats to the Ritz family on their beautiful baby girl! This family makes THE cutest little girls <3 Here's a peek at Keylee's amazing session... She was sooo wonderful to work with and was the 'bendiest' newborn I've ever had! It was so fun to do more creative poses with her that I've never been able to do before xo

Preview

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

Dean Family

I had an awesome session with my sister and her cute kiddos a couple weeks ago. After every session with them I always think it'll be hard to top that shoot off the following year. Somehow each year we manage to top the previous session! I LOVE these photos <3

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 ;)

Preview

Wright Family

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!

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

Tali Family

A few weeks ago I had a great session with the Tali family! They were probably one of my easiest large groups. We even finished our session 30 min early, which never happens! Our original location idea got rained out on, but I'm loving how these turned out. There was even a slight break in the rain so we got a few outside too! But the thing I love the most about their picture is their color choices!

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

Mitchell Family

I had a great session with the Mitchell family a couple weeks ago. Their boys were so cute and did great with some fun candid portraits. I even discovered a boardwalk at a location I've been going to for several years! Not to mention, I'm in love with those mustard pants!

Preview

Kaleigh - 5 months

Lisel and Kade had their beautiful baby girl and I was so excited to meet her for the first time! We took some beautiful family portraits with the three of them, as well as with Kaleigh's Grandma and Grandpa who were visiting from Canada. She wasn't super smiley this day, but regardless she is oh so cute!

Preview

Nicholls Family

Last month I had the absolute pleasure of photographing the Nicholls' family in celebration of their wedding anniversary! This first image is my favorite family photo at the location where the couple got married 50 years ago :) We were lucky to have the building all to ourselves! The security guards were so fabulous to show us some good views, beautiful architecture and fun photo-op locations. I don't know about you, but I'm in love with these arches over the entrance!
