Maura || Cache Valley Senior Portrait Photographer

March 15th, 2018

I LOVE this time of year because the high school seniors start filling up my schedule!! Senior portraits are one of my favorite sessions to shoot for so many reasons.  First and foremost, most seniors are REALLY excited to be getting their pictures taken. It makes for a fun session with lots of laughs.  Due to social media (I’m talkin’ about you, snapchat), most seniors are pretty aware of how they want to “look” for their pictures.  They’re typically really comfortable in front of the camera which means that pretty much every shot turns into a “money shot.”  I delete very few pictures from each senior session!  The biggest reason I love snapping high school seniors is because it really is a fun time to capture the transition between child –> young adult. There’s so much excitement, anticipation, relief, and nervousness that comes during the last part of senior year. I love getting to capture that not just for graduation announcements, but also for looking back on in 10, 20, 40, 50 years!!

Maura was amazing for her session.  She was so relaxed and easy to work with.  Maura wanted something different from everyone else in her high school, so she came down from Idaho to do her session at Tony Grove.  She had the cutest outfits that worked so well up there. Her makeup by Emily Brodock was flawless, too! She has such a sweet and kind personality, and I really enjoyed spending the evening with her and her mom.  It was a perfect night!

Logan + Evan || Logan, Utah Lifestyle Engagement Photographer

February 19th, 2018

Wedding fever is in the air in my family!! First, Emmaline and Jake, and now Logan and Evan!! I am so excited to welcome Logan into our family.  There are already 7 of us sisters, but Logan will be our first sister-in-law in this crazy group of mine.

Evan and Logan met in singles ward and hit it off pretty quick (minus the part where Evan stole her parking spot…. that was her first impression of him…sounds about right….). These two are perfect for each other, and it’s pretty obvious for anyone who knows them. Logan is so refreshing to be around because of her youthful energy and kind heart.  She is so sweet and caring and definitely brings out a fun side of Evan.

These two wanted to do a lifestyle session for their engagements, so we borrowed our Aunt and Uncles house for this session. I’ve never done a lifestyle session for engagements before, so I loved being able to do something new for my brother’s shoot. I think they turned out amazing, and can’t wait to get these two back in front of my camera for their formals!

Zoey and Ezra Baptism || Logan, Utah Photographer

January 18th, 2018

I love this time of year for my business.  Because it’s kind of the down time for family shoots and weddings, I get to focus a lot of milestone sessions that can’t wait for warmer months.  Baptisms, newborns, lifestyle sessions… I do a lot more of these right now.  Ezra and Zoey were the first of my baptism shoots this month.  I remember watching these two in our church meeting when they were brand new.  I sat there very pregnant with my first baby thinking of how cool it was that these two had each other.  Twins always sounded fun to me!! Now these little ones are almost 8 years old and getting ready for baptism!

Working with Ezra and Zoey together was so sweet.  They are adorable together and definitely have that “twin” thing going on.  They can make each other laugh on demand, and they were so funny with each other. When I did the pictures of them individually, they were both pretty shy.  But once they were together, they loosened up and just kept giggling.  It was so tender, and I loved doing this session with them!

Baby Kate Lifestyle Session || Logan, Utah Newborn Photographer

January 16th, 2018

I was so excited to meet baby Kate for her session! Her momma is one of my good friends from our days of being student wives at Creighton in Omaha, Nebraska.  Now we’re both back in Utah and both have baby girls to add to our broods of boys…. except Laura has THREE boys before getting her lil princess finally! It was fun to see her girly girl room, and I loved watching Laura cuddling her lady. It was great to stop by and do these quick pictures for them!

H Family Station Studio Shoot || Logan, Utah Photographer

December 20th, 2017

I met Kim and Chris through our ward at church, and this is a family I’m grateful we live by! They probably don’t know this, but Chis has always stood out to me at church.  He was a primary teacher when I was the pianist in the primary, and I would watch every Sunday as Chris would take the time to give special attention to one of his class members who had a hard time sitting through the three hours of church (let’s be honest…. who doesn’t have a hard time sitting through three hours of church?!).  Chris was so patient with this little one, and it was very tender to watch.  Kim and I have become fast friends since our little girls are really close in age and going through all those “fun” stages together.  One of the first times we talked was while we were both out in the hall during sacrament because of said one year olds.  Holland, my daughter, had her bottle with her.  Maia, Kim’s daughter, kept eying it.  Holland walked over towards Maia holding out her bottle as if she were going to share it.  As Maia reached for it, Holland chucked it away.  Such a little brat – but they’ve been lil friends since then! They get into all sorts of trouble together every Sunday and go on nap strikes together, too.    It will be fun to watch them grow together!

Kim wanted to get some family pictures, but with how cold it is we though it best to rent out Station Studio for the shoot! And it was perfect!! Coupled with the most adorable lil outfits on the girls, everything came together well! I am in love with the fact that we have such an amazing studio to use in the valley now for indoor photos so no more freezing cold babies and rescheduling for bad weather!  This was such a perfect session and I’m completely in love with all these pictures!!!
