Spring Photographer | American Fork
Happy spring! Okay, I know it might be a little early to say that in Utah, but I can’t help but try and manifest some warmer weather. Springtime is one of my favorite times of the year for family pictures. All of the gross gray snow and bare ugly trees start to fade into vibrant blossoms and beautiful skies. It truly feels like a reward for making it through the winter.
But let’s be honest, spring is unpredictable. Don’t worry though, I’ve searched high and low to find locations that will look good no matter what mother nature decides to throw at us. And let me tell you, the russian olive field in American Fork is one of the very best springtime locations. This beautiful field is one of my personal favorites because its colors look good all. year. long. With neutral greens and tans, this location is gorgeous without taking away the focus from you and your family.
I would LOVE to work with your family! Please contact me to schedule your spring family pictures. To see more of my work, follow along on Instagram.

Mini Gender Reveal | Utah Photographer. We have big news!! We are expecting our third baby this summer!
I am having so much fun including my kiddos in this pregnancy. They are already so excited to welcome this little babe into our family and I love it. Greyson is the sweetest older brother, constantly coming over to kiss my belly. And Nora is already proving that she is going to be the best big sister by checking on me and bringing me blankets. They are both SO eager to be involved in all things baby. Gosh, it is seriously the cutest!
When Bryan and I found out baby’s gender, we knew we wanted a special way to share the news with the kids. And of course I also wanted to capture Greyson & Nora’s precious reactions in the magical moment. Wow, let’s just say I am definitely NOT disappointed with how it turned out!
For the big reveal I set up a cute pink and blue background in my kitchen and got a confetti cannon. Then we counted to three and the confetti was….
BLUE!!! Baby Frandsen #3 is a BOY!
We are overjoyed and the kids (especially Greyson) are ecstatic! I am absolutely obsessed with how perfectly this little setup froze this special moment in time.
I want to help you capture beautiful memories like this too. So I am now offering mini gender reveal sessions! These are short sessions done in my home. Priced at $150, they include use of the blue & pink background, two poppers to announce your baby’s gender, photos and a stop motion video.
Shoot me a message if this is something you’re interested in and we will get you on the schedule.
I would LOVE to work with your family! Please contact me to schedule your mini gender reveal. To see more of my work, follow along on Instagram.
White Space Studios | Newborn Photographer. I know, I know. You’ve heard me say this before (and I’m sure I’ll say it again) but being a newborn photographer is the very best. I love capturing the magic of all the tiny fresh baby details. I love watching mama + daddy love on their newest family member. And if there is a proud big sibling getting in on the action? Gah, I love that too. It really just doesn’t get any better.
So it really shouldn’t come as a shock to hear that I absolutely loved shooting the Marquez family’s newborn session at White Space Studios. If you want the feel of an in-home session but don’t want to stress about it, a studio may be the perfect fit! We were able to utilize props to capture comfortable, lifestyle photos without being at home. If a studio seems like a good option for your family too, please reach out to me and we can make it happen.
I would LOVE to work with your family! Please contact me to schedule your newborn family pictures now. To see more of my work, follow along on Instagram.
Best Utah Family Picture Locations – Spring
As a Utah family photographer part of my job is scouting the best locations for your family pictures. And let me tell you, Utah absolutely shows off during springtime! From gorgeous blossoms, to neutral salt flats, to greenhouses and beyond, I pride myself on finding the best backdrops to showcase your family.
Where you take your family pictures can influence the vibe and color scheme of your photos. This makes choosing the right location for you so important! That is why I send all the families I work with my Seasonal Location Guide. I created this guide to highlight the best family picture locations and what you can expect from each one during spring in Utah. In this resource you will find information on the right time of day to schedule your shoot, what scenery to expect, parking/fee information and what outfit colors will look best! But don’t worry, if you have a location in mind that isn’t in my guide I will still do my best to help you get ready for our time together.

Utah Capitol Cherry Blossoms | Family and Senior Pictures
The capitol in spring is absolutely stunning and a fan-favorite for a reason. The cherry blossoms provide the perfect backdrop for showcasing your beautiful family or letting your senior shine. Because the capitol blossoms are extremely popular, I typically shoot this location on weekday evenings to beat the crowds. When you reach out we will discuss times that typically work for your family so when the blossoms begin to bloom we are ready. Once the trees start flowering they typically last about two weeks and you’ll be glad you reached out early!
Timing the blossoms right can be stressful, but that doesn’t mean your session has to be! I provide prompts to help you feel confident in front of the camera and focus on capturing genuine moments that you will cherish for a long time.
I would LOVE to work with your family or graduating senior! Please contact me to schedule your spring blossom pictures now. To see more of my work, follow along on Instagram.

As a mom, I know how quickly children grow and change. In fact, some days it feels like my babies are completely different than they were just last week!
That’s why I love Childhood Mini sessions. They are fun, quick sessions designed to capture your little ones just as they are right now! Short and sweet, childhood minis capture your kiddo’s tiny smiles, silly faces and beautiful personalities without the stress or cost of a full session.

Young Living Lavender Farm | Utah Family Photography. As a Utah Resident, the Young Living Lavender Farm in Mona is a must see! The Lavender Fields are in bloom for a short period before they need to be cut. You can see the Lavender during the last week of June, and first two weeks of July. They are absolutely beautiful.
Each year I try to book a few spots at this stunning location. Young Living Lavender Farm does charge a fee to use their fields. This year they are charging $75 per hour to shoot there. I have worked that into my mini session pricing! If you’re interesting in book a mini, click here to book a lavender mini on July 7th!
One thing to know about this beautiful location is that it is wide open. To get beautiful well lit shots, we do have to have your session take place between 7-9pm. I know this can be hard for littles, but I promise it will be worth it! One of the great things about doing a mini session at the Young Living Lavender Farm is that they are quick, and perfect for young children’s attention span!
Family Photo Outfits Spring 2022 | Blues + Greens – When I saw this incredible Dusty Blue Floral dress, I couldn’t help but dream up a beautiful family session with this dress at the center! I always believe it is important for mom to pick her dress first. This dress is a perfect example of how much easier it is to pick moms dress, and then add then build the rest around her!
My best tip will always be to not stress! Grab something you love, and have fun building everyone else’s outfits!
I hope to be able to work with your family! Contact me about booking and planning a session! To see more Utah Family and Newborn Sessions like this, follow along on Instagram.
