The K Family

Last week we travelled down to New Mexico where my family lives to celebrate my niece’s graduation. While we were down there, we met up with some good friends and I got to take their portraits! This cute couple moved to New Mexico last year and periodically welcome foster kids into their hearts and home when needed! They are a blast to be around and have such a contagious happy spirit! We found this amazingly green area near the Rio Grande and my parents’ house. I had no idea this beautiful place was even here!

I was happy to meet this gorgeous family at the Orchard Mini Sessions as well! They drove from Toeele to join in and I am so glad they did! Their kids are adorably cute just like Mom & Dad! Their smiles were amazing and I just love how their family shot came together! The sun joined us in this session warming everything up wonderfully!

This adorable family came back to get take advantage of the awesome Spring Minis at the Provo Orchard. The blossoms were big and beautiful even though the trees had started filling in with green! It made for a gorgeous setting, as I knew it would!

I was excited to hear from this family when they contacted me to schedule a session! Their family has been quite busy! They’ll soon have a new addition to their family, both kids had recently had birthdays and the mom graduated from UVU! Lots to celebrate and lots of memories to capture! Many congratulations to this great family!!!

Our Family Portaits

December 5, 2014 at 10:12 am

Sometimes the photographer is last to get her portraits in! But I’m so glad we finally did! I found this amazing spot earlier this year and fell in love with the location but I didn’t want to set up the tripod again cause we’d be limited, plus….we’ve got this crazy toddler running around nowadays! So I enlisted the help again of my talented brother-in-law, Matt, to take our photos! Check em out! I took the kids’ individuals and he took our family shots!

It was not easy keeping the little one still! He loves to escape and he’s really good at it! He’s our little Houdini!

G Family Session

I’ve had the honor of taking this family’s portraits for several years now and the kids just keep getting cuter and cuter! We always have their session in the same spot as it holds special meaning to them, mom and dad had their first pictures taken here when they were first starting off! It’s fun to see how their family has grown throughout the years in the same location!

Talk about being encircled by Fall! This mom wanted a session done with just her and her daughters. She told me about this amazing location and I absolutely fell in love with it’s bright fall colors!! I love how these came out and how much fun it was working with these lovely ladies!

B Family Session + Extended Session

November 14, 2014 at 11:14 am

I was pretty excited and honored when my friend contacted me and told me that they were coming in from Texas for a wedding and wanted me to take their family portraits! I worked with her years ago before they moved away and it was really fun seeing her again especially meeting her two youngest for the first time! This session developed from a regular outdoor session into an extended family session, when her in-laws heard they were getting their portraits taken! Even though the weekend would be full of pictures due to the fact that one of the siblings was getting married! They wanted a family portrait with everyone for their wall…without a wedding dress in it! It’s always a perfect time for an extended family session when everyone is in town at the same time!

This session was pretty magical, especially once the deer came for a visit! I love this location because of that!

As I’ve always said, everyone should have a great portrait of their parents (grandparents)!

J Family Super Session

November 11, 2014 at 4:19 pm

This family may look a little familiar if you’ve been following along. I had the pleasure of taking their extended family pictures earlier this summer. They had a great idea for their session, they opted for a wardrobe change: Superheros! There’s a special little man in this family who really is a Superhero – or more so a HydroHero!

Little T was born with Dandy Walker Syndrome which causes Hydrocephalus. It’s surprising that DW isn’t more well-known since it’s, unfortunately, not very rare. Every 1 out of 2,500 births are diagnosed with DW. They have a saying on their website that says “That’s A Lot When Your Kid’s the One.” Please take a moment to read about these syndromes and donate to it’s cause if you can! There’s no cure…yet!

I know T has his bad days (what kid doesn’t), but this kid sure knows how to enjoy life with such passion and exuberance! This kid loves The Price is Right and seems to have about 5 times more energy than the average 4 year old! His siblings are such peaches when playing with him. His parents…complete angels! This is one “Super” Family!
