This sweet family invited me to their home for their family session.
It was so fun to photograph their children while comfortable in their own space… playing in their rooms, and being together as a family.
The view from their yard was the perfect backdrop at sunset!
The Utah State Capitol was a great backdrop for this sweet family’s portrait session – beautiful architecture!
This family’s love and connection with each other was so fun to photograph!
Even the dog liked to smile!
I love photographing this family each year and seeing how much their little ones are growing! It is such an honor to have repeat customers.
This family is so fun to plan a session with, and always up for fun locations. Antelope Island was the perfect setting on this Fall evening… the sunset was one of the most amazing I’d ever seen, and the Super Moon rose into the sky at the end of it! Perfect!
When this family contacts me each year for their family portraits, I am always so happy! I love to see these little ones and how they are growing up, and they are a really fun family full of laughs and love. I love their style!
The Bonneville Salt Flats had about a 1/2 inch of water on the salt that day, and it created some great reflections. It is such a unique location, and it looks different every time I go out there.
Any chance I get to be in the forest, I’ll go… I love it there!
This sweet family is so fun to photograph each year – they are so chill, full of love for each other, and always up for adventure when choosing their location. Aren’t their little ones just the cutest!
I loved this family’s idea for their portrait session… at home, riding their cruisers on their street, hanging out together and enjoying life. This may be my favorite family session ever… I kinda want them to adopt me…
Even their cat wanted in on the fun!
Their porch is so inviting and fun… you just want to have a seat & hang out.
I asked the boys what they liked to do & collect so we could show it in their portraits – I love what they brought out!
With those those smiles… the boys thanked me at the end of their session! Sweetest kids ever…Great job mama! Great job…
These siblings are just the sweetest! I’ve been photographing their portraits since Storm was born and it is a joy to see them each year.
I love seeing this family year after year and seeing how their family has grown! They were celebrating their darling Kate turning 1 year old! Look at that adorable smile!!
Cutest siblings ever!
The outfits & colors they chose were perfect for the green foothills of Salt Lake City this Spring!
Be still my heart…
I am always honored to have clients contact me to photograph their family each year, and it is extra special when they have a new baby to introduce me to! I loved photographing this sweet family in their home!
For Mother’s Day, I asked my three boys to pose for a portrait for me – no complaints, and they delivered! I love that these look like they were shot in a studio… because they were actually shot in our garage with no additional lighting!
I had heard in a few photography courses years ago that garages are a great place to take portraits due to the lighting conditions it creates. (The garage also worked out to be the perfect place to shoot today because it was raining.) If you’d like to try this, place your subject near the edge of the garage, and have them step back until they are not in direct sunlight. Their eyes will have gorgeous catchlights from the amount of light let in through the wide open door.
My boys were just a few feet inside of the garage facing the open door. I stood about 2-3 feet away, at about the edge of the garage. As you can see in the pull backs, they were sitting in-between our vehicles, so there were a few distractions in the background that I used photoshop to minimize afterward. I’d recommend an empty garage to avoid that. I’ll definitely shoot there again!
These were shot with my Canon 24-70L at 50mm, F2.8.
