Baptism Portraits (Utah Family Photographer)

These pictures were so fun!  It was FREEZING the day we went out to take these but this sweet little girl was an angel!  No complaints out of her!  It was 17 degrees in Provo the morning we went to take these photographs, but you couldn't tell by her face, she was so good at not looking cold:)!  The sun was shining and it was such a beautiful morning!

This super cute little girl has been a great friend to our family!  Her and my daughter became friends in kindergarten and even though they don't even go to the same school anymore they love to play and spend time together!  It is so fun seeing these cute little girls growing up and choosing this wonderful step to be baptized!
I love seeing her in her white dress and her sweet countenance!  I think the flower crown was the perfect addition for this pictures!  

I ended up really liking the pictures with her blessing dress!  It was interesting taking these pictures at the new Provo Temple and seeing these dresses and all the brides coming out the door next to us!  Time just goes by so quickly and it is so important to capture these moments forever!

I love her cute little smile, she did such a awesome job with these pictures!  It was so fun to see her in her baptism dress and go down to the temple and capture these moments!  This is the reason I love taking being a family photographer times change and the kids grow so fast!  It is so important to document these special moments!

Yellowstone is awesome!  I want to go up there every year!  It is beautiful and full of life and action all the time!  It was so much fun!
So this trip to Yellowstone was a little while ago, but I'm just trying to get it all on the blog!  It was over Memorial Day weekend  and the park was super busy with animals and tourists!  I could not believe how much I loved this trip!  We saw so many animals with their little babies, it was so beautiful!  It did rain a lot but when the sun was shining it made up for all the rain!
I had only been once before with my family when I was growing up, I didn't love it, but I wanted to give it another chance as an adult and not a snotty teenager.   I am so glad that we went back with my little family and were able to see so much!  We saw 5 bears(that was the coolest thing!), deer, Elk(I think), a beaver, buffalo and their little babies it was awesome!!  It is such a beautiful place I really want to go back and do more exploring and picture taking!    

Seeing a mom and her three baby bear cubs was the coolest thing ever!  I was pretty scared of going to Yellow Stone because of all the bear stories but we were in the car and there were like a milling people around, everyone was going crazy, it wasn't as scary as I thought it would be!  It was pretty cool to see!  There were rangers directing the traffic and trying to keep people away from the bear(they were crazy) but it was so fun to see the cute baby bear cubs with their mom!

This is a huge Grizzly bear, or brown bear, I have no idea!  It was across the lake from us and it was pretty hard to see he looked like a big furry rock.  I thought it was so cool to see him(from far away, I'm totally scared of everything).  Whenever you get into a lot of traffic at Yellowstone that probably means there's some kind of cool animal around(or the buffalo are blocking the road).  It was so fun to be there and see all the amazing animals!

 This waterfall was beautiful!  I loved that the rainbow showed up right before we were leaving!  This is such a beautiful land we've been given to enjoy, how lucky we are!

This trip was a blast!  I've mentioned that I am not an outdoorsy girl but staying in a camper, having a toilet, and showers is my kind of camping!  I want my children to know and enjoy this beautiful world we have been blessed to live on!  I'm trying to be better about being outside and getting my family to do it with me!  It has filled my life with more purpose!

Utah Family Photographer Newborn Session

A couple weeks ago my cousin had a sweet little baby girl!  You have to understand that in my husbands family girls are a rare commodity!  There is something like 35 boys grandchildren to like 7 girl grandchildren!  So, when our cousin found out she was having a girl it was pretty big news for the family!  
It is so fun to have a new sweet little person fresh from heaven!  This little girl was perfect during the photo shoot!  She is perfect for this family!

So normally I don't do a lot of newborn photography I like to stick with family photography but doing this for family it was a really low pressure situation(just the kind I like) and I felt like we could really take our time and try to get the shots that would be perfect for this new little person!

I'm such a sucker for the sad faces!  I think these pictures are so cute!  I love their lips and the little lines their perfect little faces make!  It's so fun to capture these little moments!

 She is such a little doll!  She is so loved by her family what a beautiful gift!!

 This blessing dress belongs to her great grandma!  It is so beautiful!  I love the simplicity of it and how timeless it is!  It is so fun to photograph meaningful family treasures!  She was the perfect model for the dress!  It was just perfect on her!

I love these pictures of these two sweet sisters!  The older sister was so excited to have a new little baby sister!  It was so fun to photograph this new (to Earth)relationship!  I love the family relationships that show up in little moments to be captured and remembered forever!  

This mom and baby photograph goes down in the books as one of my favorite!  The look they are giving one another is priceless!  Photographing these moments makes me happy, it is good for my heart!!

Baby Fall Sessions, Utah Family Photographer

I love Fall Photography Sessions, I miss them and want them back so bad!  I don't remember winter being so bad, but this year it's really killing me!  I miss the sun, and really just being outside!  Fall is just a magical time of year!  I love all the seasons, they all have a different kind of beauty to them but fall specifically is magical for me, the colors, the air, the leaves, everything is so beautiful!  Utah really knows how to put on a show (right before the winter comes and we can't go outside because the air makes our faces hurt).  It makes me appreciate the other seasons when we have a winter has long and had as this month of January!
This little guy is my youngest and is just the craziest baby you will ever meet!  He loves being active, and screaming to let you know what he wants!  He really likes to keep us on our toes!  He makes life an adventure for us and keeps his older siblings laughing all the time!  We sure love this cute little guy!
It was a lot of fun taking him out to the park to do a little photography session with him and his teddy bear.  This little teddy bear was given to him by his dad last Christmas.  He really doesn't love this teddy bear but we try to get him to love it(it's like he has a mind of his own!:))

 This kid has the best smile and laugh!  He gets a kick out of life, and keeps us all laughing with him!  In this picture his dad was throwing leaves at him and he was just loving it!  It was so funny to see how excited he got when dad would pick up more leaves!

I love those big blue eyes he's got!  I love the light and innocents that comes with these cute little people!  The really teach us so much about life and what is truly important!  

 I love these little pictures with the teddy bear because he really looks like he loves that teddy bear, mission accomplished!  I really think he just doesn't like the teddy bear because we want him to like it so bad!  

The older I get the more amazed I am at the beautiful earth we are given to live in!  I love Utah, I love the season changes and the different landscapes, we are truly blessed to have the beautiful land to live on and enjoy.  The beautiful colors along with this beautiful baby that we love so much just makes my heart happy!
