Sorry for the nearly year long delay in blog posting! Life as been so busy, I resorted to posting updated photos on Facebook only!!
Please check them out as my website is getting rather outdated. www.Facebook.com/PhotosByWendyG

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!

Mason - 3 years

Happy 3rd birthday to this handsome fella! Mason was so cute to work with. He seriously had me cracking up the entire time. What a fun, busy little guy with the cutest personality!

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

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

Keisha- Senior Portraits

I had the opportunity to photograph Keisha for her senior portraits while the fall leaves were still bold and beautiful. Keisha graduated a year early and walked with the seniors last year! They wanted to get some fun pictures in the gorgeous fall colors so they waited until this year :) So so pretty!

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

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

Sheridan - Missionary Portraits

A few weeks ago I had an awesome session with Sheridan. She got her mission call to North Carolina! What a beautiful young lady. Seriously! She's so photogenic! After photographing her mother's wedding, I'm really looking forward to photographing their family portraits in a couple weeks before Sheridan leaves.

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

Creature Vs.

A few weeks ago I had a session with Creature Vs! Two of the old members from A Failsafe Story decided to create a new band and look for two new members. They're super excited about the new crew and having a female lead vocal... who has awesome hair, I might add ;) So here's our session up the canyon!

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

JR - Baptism Portraits

Congratulations to JR on his upcoming baptism tomorrow!! His mother gave him the option to have his portraits taken at any local temple of his choice. Of course he chose Salt Lake! I'm seriously dying from the cuteness factor of these first two images. I couldn't be more happy with how they turned out :)

Preview

Audrey - Senior Portraits

Last week I had an amazing shoot with Audrey! She had me laughing the entire time with her quirky personality and funny faces she kept making. Her older sister and mother joined in on the fun as well and of course also had me laughing. Audrey is super gorgeous and we got a ton of amazing portraits!

Preview

Mckenna - Senior Portraits

Last week I had a fun senior portrait session with Mckenna! There were so many pretty spots at this park that her outfits worked out perfectly with! My favorite is this first image and the one of her in the tree with the gorgeous back light!

Preview

Kalli - Head Shots

Earlier this week I had an amazing session with Kalli! This is probably one of my favorite portrait sessions to date. The lighting was spot on, the editing was gorgeous and the model was perfect! There wasn't a single bad photo.. what a beautiful girl! Kalli is a pop singer and I've had the pleasure of photographing her a few years ago for her album. Her site is under maintenance right now, but check her out! www.KalliJackson.com

Back in January my sweet, little niece was baptized! Her Grandma made her beautiful white dress. I love these portraits of Madisen.. she's such a cutie!

Preview

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

Bryner Family

Last week I had a fabulous shoot with the Bryner family. It was a gorgeous, sunny day, with the coldest wind chill I've ever felt! ha! Despite frozen fingers, ears and noses we left the session with not only some super cute family/individual portraits, but senior and missionary portraits as well!

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

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

Jadon - Senior Portraits

Last weekend I met Jadon for his senior portraits! He and his mother were visiting the area from Idaho looking at colleges. I'm so glad they decided to look up photographers for senior portraits and found me! Here's a look at his session...

Preview

MaKenna & Sheldon

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing two siblings for some special occasion portraits! MaKenna was just recently baptized and her brother, Sheldon is getting blessed this month. So we planned to take their portraits around Temple Square in their beautiful white outfits :)
