A year ago this March, I was contacted by the sweetest couple from Tennessee to photograph their pregnancy announcement photos. They were married at Utah’s Canyons Ski Resort 3 years prior, and wanted to announce their pregnancy with images from the slopes as well.
We met for Paige & Garret’s photoshoot at Snowbasin Resort with perfect weather – sunshine and a mountain full of snow! They had printed up the cutest onesie’s with “Guess What?” and ” Best Day Ever” on them. I was able to borrow a toddler snowboard from the Lifthouse in Salt Lake City, along with the cutest little snowboard boots to use for props.
I had such a great time hanging out with these two on the mountain! They were so fun, easy to talk to, game for any ideas, and really excited to be new parents.
On the ski lift, Paige told me their story… they had been trying to build their family for a while now, and had gone through 3 miscarriages. This was their 4th pregnancy, things were going well, they’d made it past 10 weeks and were so excited.
Sadly, I heard from Paige shortly after their trip that they had miscarried once more. My heart just broke for them.
But guess what? They never lost their positive attitude and faith that someday… they would be parents. That struck me from the first time she had shared their struggle, and as sad as I felt for them I was equally amazed and inspired by their strength and positive attitude.
Fast forward one year…
I just received an email from Paige, AND THEY ARE PREGNANT!!!
You couldn’t peel the smile off of my face as I read that email! They are in their second trimester and are due in August 2017!
Still living their inspiring, positive attitudes, this is what Paige wrote… “I really don’t think I would change a thing about our story because it has strengthened my faith and truly enhanced my appreciation.” This couple is truly blessed, and not just with this new baby coming.
They are excited to share their joy with family & friends, and show their fun images!
I cannot wait to someday meet this little one on a future Utah trip to introduce that darling baby to Utah’s ski resorts! hint hint Paige & Garret 😉 come back out to UT anytime, I’ve got a huge hug waiting for all 3 of you!
Ok… now that you know the full story, please take a look at their images and see if your smile doesn’t reach your ears too!
This sweet couple was fun to photograph – they were so obviously smitten for each other … pretty adorable. I wish them the best for their upcoming wedding and life together!
2016 Winter Sessions!
Let’s get out in the snow and play!
I have great locations available with fresh Utah snow, beautiful mountain scenery & my favorite… tall pines covered in snow.
Contact kari@karisikorskiphotography to book your Winter Session.
This couple’s engagement session was shot on two separate dates to include locations here in Utah that they love! Because they were getting married on an Alaskan cruise, they wanted to include formal images taken in their wedding attire.
We shot their images at Snowbird, Little Cottonwood Canyon, La Caille, and the Bonneville Salt Flats. They are such a fun and adventurous couple, and their engagement session was truly a lot of fun!
This sweet couple is expecting their firstborn soon…
This Fall session is a favorite for many reasons… this mama is an amazing Montessori teacher whom my twins adore, they are a super sweet family, and this is one of my favorite locations because of this beautiful tree!
cute, cute couple!
Love this moment…
Sigh… don’t you just love Fall…
To help you plan your Fall portrait sessions and Holiday cards…
Kari Sikorski Photography is fully booked for September.

I am excited to wrap up the year with some gorgeous Fall color and snow!
This cute couple met on this corner as they crossed the street 7 years ago. He told me that he knew he had to say something at that moment or he never would get the chance again. Fast forward to today… they have a beautiful 2 yr old daughter and wanted to shoot their first family session in this special spot.
Their daughter, Victoria is just adorable…
Gabby has the best smile, it makes you want to smile right back!
I really loved the clothing colors they chose… perfect for the Fall leaves!
I love this family. Candace & I met 11 years ago and she counts as one of my besties. Seriously, there isn’t a better night at work than one spent with a great friend…
Marshall is a little character & kept us laughing!
Love this couple!
