Sophie & Manny {Salt Lake City Couple & Engagement Photographer}

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of second shooting Sophie & Manny’s session with the wonderful Ali from Sweet Cactus Photography. She recently had a giveaway contest, and this lucky couple was the winner of the contest.

This couple married about 3 years ago, and they were in need of getting some new photos of them done since the wedding. Aren’t they just adorable? They drove all the way from Logan to Salt Lake to have their session in Millcreek Canyon. They laughed the whole time, and you could see their love is still strong after the newlywed phase! I love seeing couples that allow their personalities to shine through in photos.

Nelson Family {Park City Family Photographer}

park city family photographyA few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of photographing the Nelson family up in Park City. While they live in Austin, Texas, they were visiting their son who lives in the Salt Lake area for a summertime family get together!
The family loves the aspen trees that we have so many of up here in the Wasatch front, so they were hoping to get some fun family photos in the aspen groves. We decided to go up to Empire Pass between Park City and Salt Lake, and we had an awesome afternoon of fun. They certainly know how to make taking family photos fun– They brought the southern with them and tailgated our shoot. It actually reminded me of the Southern hospitality that I am used to back home in Florida. 😉 They also brought fun sunglasses and their drinks with them in some of our photos. How fun!
Our shoot started off silly, and they wanted to make sure we captured their fun side first!
After our initial group shots, the brothers took some photos with their girlfriend and wife, respectively. These two brothers struck some poses, and never missed a beat. This one’s one of their less silly ones. 🙂 And you can’t miss the two lovebirds! Cynthia came into the shoot knowing the exact type of location and she made posing the larger group super easy- Don’t you think she did a great job!?
They wanted to make sure they got some great cousin photos while they were visiting Park City for the week. While we were doing the photos, the group noticed this funny shaped aspen tree. Look how it made a great seat and posing platform!

We had so many “bloopers” that I made an entire album of the silly photos for this family. I love how much personality shined through in the photos!

Baby Leo {Salt Lake City Newborn Photographer}

Recently, my sister-in-law gave birth to a perfect little boy! Little Leo is very cute, and he was awake for most of our photoshoot. He was a little trooper while we tried several different areas of the house and poses. Here are some photos of our session that are my favorites!

Newborn details are the cutest. Their ears, eyes, noses, hair, and especially fingers & toes!

Somer plays guitar, so to personalize the shoot a little, we had Leo on her guitar as she played. He really enjoyed the vibration of her strumming– Look at cute his expression was!

Crystal & Sean {Salt Lake City Engagement & Couple Photographer}

Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing Crystal and Sean who are celebrating 12 years of marriage this Sunday! They live in the Draper area, so they wanted a “date night” themed shoot in Downtown Salt Lake City. They were such a blast to work with. Crystal is the author of the Wannabe Balanced blog focusing on balanced lifestyle for moms and families. Their love and joy is contagious.

Natalie {Salt Lake City Senior Portrait Photographer}

My session with Natalie was relaxed and fun on a summer night. A little shy at first, Natalie told me that she didn’t consider herself photogenic, and hates most photos of herself. I wanted to take some photos that she didn’t want to “destroy” that showed her fun loving personality!

We were thinking that our shoot would be rained out that day, but the clouds parted and we were left with a dry night. Unfortunately, the sun didn’t want to show its warm face until the very end for a pretty sunset.

 She has a stunning, warm smile! It’s contagious! We were treated to a friendly deer visitor from afar. Don’t worry, we admired from the distance. 😉
