Wakefield Extended Family {Ogden Family Photographer}

Green mountains, warm weather, and lots of fun in the sun— Summer season is a perfect time for family reunions! Over the Memorial Day weekend, the Wakefield family gathered on their beautiful property in Huntsville, Utah. I haven’t had a lot of opportunity to explore Ogden Canyon much, but I got to see it in all its glory for this session.

Wendy contacted me all the way from her home in Hawaii to schedule this session. Even with the distance, we were able to gather her 20 family members into one location during their time all together for the holiday weekend. I also learned that Wendy used to work and live in Zion National Park for a little while. How cool is that?!

Sami Caldwell {Salt Lake City Graduation Photographer}

This past weekend, Sami graduated from the University of Utah with her Bachelor’s degree! Congratulations to Sami and her family. Sami is hoping to go into the medical field with her degree after she continues to go through schooling. When she contacted me, she wanted some photos showing off her graduation garb on campus and some photos of her without— a little variety is always a great idea!

During the shoot, we discovered that there was a very large children’s orchestral show going on where we were shooting, but we improvised and found the school’s beautiful tulips which made for a bright pop of color in her photos!

Congratulations again, Sami!

Baby Dav {Utah Valley Newborn Photographer}

This little bundle of joy, Dav, was born on March 22nd, 2017! Shwetha was anxiously awaiting the arrival of her new son a month or two from her due date when she first contacted me about doing a newborn shoot. Since my style of newborn shoots are a little different than the typical studio/props variety, it was important to me to explain what my shoots entail and she loved the idea of being able to get some shots in her new baby’s nursery. Another favorite part of the flexibility of lifestyle newborn photos, is that you can incorporate parents, grandparents, and other family members. Shwetha had family visiting to meet Dav, so we were able to do a family-style lifestyle shoot for her. I also loved that they did some photos in their traditional cultural dress. It was a neat experience to be part of!

William Witkamp {Salt Lake City Newborn Photographer}

Salt Lake City,Utah,lifestyle newborn photography,newborn,salt lake city newborn photography,salt lake city photographer,

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of capturing baby William at one month! When Megan contacted me about her newborn session, she was a little concerned that he had already grown too big for a newborn session and wanted to schedule as soon as possible. I was able to schedule a time that worked for her family’s schedule as well as mine. Typically newborn sessions are held within the first 7-10 days after a baby’s birth. However, I have done sessions when the baby is already a month old. I’ve found that it just makes for a slightly different sessions where the baby is awake in more of the photos.

For Megan’s session, she wanted to include her parents’ and grandparents’ hands into a photo with her precious son William. I love how she wanted to show the generations with the newest member of their family, William. Another interesting family connection I loved was her and her husband Steven bought her childhood home. Imagine all of the memories that house holds for them! I love that could hold the shoot in this special house for her family.

Kat + Cal {Salt Lake City Couple & Engagement Photographer}

couple photography, salt lake city engagement photographer, millcreek canyon engagement photography, snowy engagement session, mountain engagement

During the winter, it’s sometimes hard to find adventurous couples that are willing to go all out and make the most of the snow. Kat and Cal were one of those couples that had no issues getting a little (or a lot) snowy for the sake of some fun photos! They met through their work at CHG Healthcare. Even though they only started dating about 3-4 months ago, you can tell they are a great match for each other and spend a lot of their free time climbing, skiing, mountain biking, hiking, camping, and any other outdoor activities they can find together.

When we arrived at Millcreek Canyon, Cal and Kat both seemed a little nervous and unsure of what to expect. I remember feeling this way when Brighton and I first had our engagement photos done back in May 2015. I assured them that I wanted them to just be themselves, and even though they didn’t realize it, they were excellent at posing even without direction! This is one of my favorite reasons I love being a photographer. I love when couples and families are just natural and let me capture the magic of their emotions!

The session was a lot of fun, including for Brighton (my awesome husband and photo assistant), who got to shake and kick trees to “make it snow” on Kat and Cal! By the end of the shoot, they were having snow fights and kissing in the snow. Even though sometimes snow sessions can be cold and uncomfortable for some, we made the most of it and made photo magic! Can you tell?
