2018 GRAD Kara - Utah Senior Photographer

This sweet cousin of mine is GRADUATING! I can't believe it is already graduation time, this year has been crazy busy and has just flown by! Kara was the start to my senior sessions this year, and it was everything I hoped it would be. We laughed and giggled and I made fun of myself just to get those genuine laughs.

...I really need to up my joke game. It would save me some humiliation! 

Kara is headed to Utah State **GO AGGIES** and I know she is bound to accomplish great things. Good luck Kara! And enjoy college! 

Emmett Newborns - Utah Family Photographer

Give me all the squishy babies!! I absolutely love newborns, even though photographing them can be hard! Sweet little Emmett was so chill and so calm through his entire session, which included multiple outfit changes and diaper changes. Little Emmett was welcomed by loving parents to this world and has so much family support and love. He has a whole head of hair and the cutest little newborn toes! It's crazy how fast your newborn changes, I saw him 1 week after we did his newborn session and he already looked so much older! Now I look at my 1 year old and it's crazy to think that he was ever this small and snuggly. I treasure the photos I have of my newborn and hope this family does as well. Welcome to the world, Emmett!

Utah State Capitol Blossoms - Maternity

In all my years of shooting, I have never made it to the Capitol during the blossoms! I can't believe it! This year I was itching to go and was so happy to do this maternity mini session there with sweet Sarah and her husband. They are due soon with their first little girl and Sarah couldn't have been more radiant! 

Seriously! She's glowing! And not only did her dress go perfectly with these gorgeous blooms, her and her husband were so giggly and had so much fun. He can make her laugh like there is no tomorrow!! And when they look at each other, everyone around could feel that they are just so in love. 

I'm so glad I got to work with these two and it honestly was one of the most fun sessions I've had! 

Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy mama! This babe is coming to the best parents and will be so loved! 

"Selfie" Family Photos

One of the advantages of being a photographer is being able to take your own family photos multiple times a year. Since my babe was born we have had our family photos done once by a fellow profesh and then the trusty ole tripod 3 more times. It can be tricky getting your little ones to look at a camera with no one there to make silly faces. Luckily we have a pretty happy baby so it's easy to get him to smile, but even though he's a happy fella, he doesn't smile for all of them! Especially when he's cutting 4 molars at once. *Please pray for this mama....... 

I love getting to photograph and edit my own family. I love the cute little moments more than the posed photos most times. These are the photos I treasure most, and I love displaying. 

These two boys are my absolute favorite human beings on this planet. I always knew my husband was going to be such a great dad, but seeing it in real life is magical, and just so perfect. I can't imagine only having phone photos of these two. Although I love the in-the-moment, peanut butter faces, or tickle time photos, these ones really show their relationship and I just can't get over them! 

Of course you can't have a family photo sesh without some posed of the whole family. I struggle with wanting to be in photos, but I know that if I don't, down the road I'll regret it. I'm not perfect, and I'm not where I want to be physically, but my babe is only this small for a short time and I want to document every step of the way.
