Kati was such a breath of fresh air during her session!  She was so willing to have fun, even though having fun with a camera in your face is a little awkward.  Her adorable sister fancied her up for her session doing her hair and makeup, and she looked fantastic!  I’m excited for Kati and […]

Kati was such a breath of fresh air during her session!  She was so willing to have fun, even though having fun with a camera in your face is a little awkward.  Her adorable sister fancied her up for her session doing her hair and makeup, and she looked fantastic!  I’m excited for Kati and her mission call to the Roseville, California mission.  She’s going to be an amazing missionary!

Arya // Logan, Utah Newborn Photographer

May 28th, 2015

Arya was such a sweetie during her session!  I kept commenting to her mom and how alert she was.  I usually don’t get babies looking right in to the camera, but she did a few times.  The clicking of the shutter seemed to capture her attention.  It was adorable.  And she even let us pose […]

 

Arya was such a sweetie during her session!  I kept commenting to her mom and how alert she was.  I usually don’t get babies looking right in to the camera, but she did a few times.  The clicking of the shutter seemed to capture her attention.  It was adorable.  And she even let us pose her for a few shots!  She is just the sweetest little doll with the cutest little head of hair!  Congrats again Ausha and Derrick!  She’s beautiful!

Arya // McKay-Dee Hospital Session

May 28th, 2015

I absolutely LOVED heading down to McKay-Dee hospital in Ogden to do this “Fresh 48” session of Arya.  Any shoots that have to do with Birth Stories are really my favorite because, well, who doesn’t love to have an excuse to snuggle a brand new baby!  Arya pulled a lot of cute little poses for […]

 

I absolutely LOVED heading down to McKay-Dee hospital in Ogden to do this “Fresh 48” session of Arya.  Any shoots that have to do with Birth Stories are really my favorite because, well, who doesn’t love to have an excuse to snuggle a brand new baby!  Arya pulled a lot of cute little poses for her shoot.  I guess she wanted to show off all the “accessories” the hospital stuck on her.  But she wore them well.  Such a sweet little princess!!

Kolei // Logan, Utah Birth and Adoption Story

Every time I walk away from shooting a birth story, I am amazed at the miracle that life truly is.  But this time was different.  This time, I thought about the miracle of baby Kolei, but also about what a warrior her beautiful birth mom is.  And I truly mean warrior – I cannot think […]

Every time I walk away from shooting a birth story, I am amazed at the miracle that life truly is.  But this time was different.  This time, I thought about the miracle of baby Kolei, but also about what a warrior her beautiful birth mom is.  And I truly mean warrior – I cannot think of a better word to describe such an amazing woman!  When I initially walked in the room, I asked if she had gotten an epidural because she was sitting there so calm.  But she hadn’t!  I was shocked then, and even more shocked when she ended up not getting one at all.

After Kolei was born, it was so sweet and tender to watch her birth mom hold her, knowing that she would soon allow another woman to hold her as her own.  Cecy (the adoptive mom), was so supportive and amazing during the labor and delivery.  And after Kolei was born, Cecy was beautiful to watch.  The love she had for the woman who just gave birth to her daughter was so deep – something I’m sure I will never understand unless my plans for adoption one day happen.  Watching Cecy hold her daughter for the first time was truly moving.  And then watching the new family of 4 be together was nothing short of pure joy.

This experience allowed me to see and up close story of adoption.  I’ve always been fascinated by it – there is nothing I can think of that is more selfless than placing your baby in another family’s arms.  This was truly a heavenly experience in an earthly environment.  There is no doubt in my mind that there were angels all around this hospital room assisting in this painful and beautiful process.  It was an experience I’ll never forget.

I have loved every minute I have spent with Charley. She’s such a sweet baby with a strong little spirit. I loved being there for her birth, seeing her in the hospital, and then having the opportunity to go to her home and take her newborns. And her big brother and sister are just as sweet as can be with her! It’s been amazing to have been here for a lot of her journey to earth – from hearing about Caytie having her very big surprise pregnancy to seeing the family in their home with her, Charley is just a lucky lady. I’m so blessed to call her my littlest cousin!
