Couples Photo Shoot at Saltair 

I love capturing families at every stage! So when my brother asked me to take pictures of him and my new sister-in-law,  I immediately said yes! It was SO much fun to capture their excitement and love. So couples, here’s your reminder: you don’t need to have kids to take family pictures! Book a couples photo shoot  – I promise you won’t regret capturing this moment in your little family. 

Thankfully my brother let me talk him into shooting at Saltair and HOLY SMOKES it showed off! A vast expanse of white met a GORGEOUS sunset to create a seriously ethereal setting for their couples pictures.

Fall family pictures may be in full swing, but I’m still dreaming about all of the gorgeous Summer family pictures I took. Like, are we kidding?! These pictures from Big Springs are serious family picture goals.

Being a Utah photographer has serious perks.

  1. You get to shoot in seriously jaw-dropping locations like Big Springs. The green? The mountains? It is seriously the perfect backdrop for your family.
  2. You get to work with the absolute freaking cutest families out there.

Working with this family was such a dream (maybe one of my favorite shoots to date?). The way they interacted with each other was just so fun! I mean, just LOOK at these cute sibling shots. Oh, and the shots of mom + dad. Gah, they’re all so good, right?!?!

What to wear for Summer Family Pictures

And on top of that, I love what they wore. If you’re looking for inspiration on what to wear for your Summer family pictures in Utah, take another look at their choices! I love that they stuck with muted colors that worked with their green background, rather than clashing or blending into it!  When choosing your summer family picture outfits, choose something that will stand out from your location but won’t look out of place. I recommend blues, pinks, whites, and light oranges for a pretty green background like this!

First, I just die over how cute this family is. As a Utah family photographer, the thing I love the very most about my job is meeting your family and getting to spend time capturing your unique love and relationships!

The thing I love the second most is squeezing smiles out of your littles. Are we kidding with that grin and baby’s big beautiful brown eyes?! Being a family photographer is seriously the best gig out there.

Earlier this summer, one of my clients reached out and asked if she could book a Saltair family picture session for her friend. Her friend had recently recieved a heartbreaking diagnosis and she wanted to give them the gift of family pictures, to capture their family as it is right now.

Giving family pictures is truly one of the most thoughtful things I’ve ever heard of.

We settled on doing a Saltair family picture session. And wow, did Saltair really show off! It was such a gorgeous night and a beautiful honor to capture these moments. I loved working with this family and helping them freeze their relationships through my lens. Spending time with this precious trio as they face something so hard was such a beautiful privilege. And can you even handle baby girl and her curls and chunky thighs?

I am always so grateful every time you trust me to capture your family, but wow, this session of family pictures at Saltair reminded me why family photos – why family – is so important. Thank you for letting me get to know you. Thank you for including me in your lives. And thank you for letting me watch your family and your love grow. It’s not something I take forgranted.

I would love to take your family pictures at Saltair! If you’re interested in shooting with me, please reach out to me here or follow along with my work on Instagram.

Guys, I could not let summer come to an end without sharing these gorgeous lavender field family pictures. Warning: you’ll swoon.

Every year I try to convince myself that I don’t need to do sessions at the Mona lavender fields because it’s kind of a drive for me. But who am I kidding?! I will never be able to say no to this stunning scenery. The mountains + lavender + soft summer night light? It is the dreamiest combo.

Then, add in my beautiful clients and I’m swooning every time I sit down to edit. Gosh, I can’t ever quit it. I’ll be shooting lavender field family pictures until I die, I swear.

Baptism Mini Shoot | Mount Timpanogas Temple

Oh, it’s great to be Eight! In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, when someone turns eight they have the opportunity to choose if they would like to be baptized and confirmed as a member. This involves making special covenants with God, being washed spiritually clean, and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost to always be with them. The decision to be baptized is so special and deserves to be remembered and celebrated!

I absolutely loved being able to capture Reagan’s excitement for her upcoming baptism in this mini shoot at the Mount Timpanogas Temple! It was so special to focus solely on her and get photos that capture her sweet 8-year-old personality. Isn’t she just the freaking cutest?!

Because this was so fun, I am now offering Baptism Mini Sessions once a quarter. I  will rotate which temple the shoot will be at each time. So if there is a location you’d like to see, let me know! These sessions will be short & sweet, lasting 20 minutes and will cost $225. The images from these sessions are perfect for so many things. Some clients have used them for memory books, Baptism invitations/programs, celebration decor and even individual portraits for your wall. I cannot wait to work with you and your kiddos!

Our first shoot will be April 25th at the Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple. If you’re interested in joining us, please contact me to schedule your Mini Baptism Temple Session!  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. 

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.

Utah Capitol Cherry Blossoms | Family and Senior Pictures 

Utah Capitol Cherry Blossoms | Family and Senior Pictures. I know it’s hard to believe with the absolutely bitter winter we’ve been having, but spring is right around the corner. Thank goodness! This means now is the time to contact your photographer for beautiful blossoms in your family or 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.

Tibble Fork | Maternity Photographer. I love this Tibble Fork maternity session with the beautiful Falk family!
Tibble Fork is located about 15 minutes up American Fork Canyon and is stunning year-round. But during the winter? Wowza – it is the perfect wonderland! The pines and snowy reservoir provided a gorgeous backdrop to highlight this gorgeous mama-to-be. I loved helping Braidy & Matt capture striking images of this magical season of their life before they’re joined by baby boy in a few weeks! Their excitement was contagious and their love for each other was so sweet. I  have no doubts they are going to be the best parents to their little guy. 
 
I’d LOVE to work with your growing family! Please contact me to book your maternity, fresh 48, and newborn sessions! To view more of my work, follow along on Instagram.

Spring Family Photos | Salt Lake PhotographerSpring Family Photos | Salt Lake Photographer

Spring Family Photos | Salt Lake Photographer. When it comes to Spring Family Photos, there are many lovely location options. Most people will immediately thing about going to a beautiful Orchard with beautiful blossoms. However, if you have lived in Salt Lake City, Utah for a long time, you may want something different! This beautiful spot is filled with the most gorgeous Olive trees. Not only is it stunning, but this location is easy to get to!

Things I love about this location

These Olive trees are the first thing that I love about this location. Having these Olive trees actually allows us to begin your session at an earlier time. The beautiful warm light that comes through the leaves gives a late spring/ early summer feel.  After daylight savings, sunset is much later and this often conflicts with children’s bedtimes. I am always happy to have a location up my sleeves where we can begin a session a couple of hours before golden hour!

I hope to be able to work with your family this spring! Please contact me to book your family session! To view more of my work, follow along on Instagram.
