Roosendaal Family {Seattle Family Photographer}

My favorite part of family photography sessions is getting to be part of the family (even if only for a couple hours)! The Roosendaals wanted to get their children and grandchildren together for a summer photo session in the mountains, and by the end of the session, I felt like I was one of them!

They were joking around the entire time, and you can tell that they had some fun with it. I even delivered some “bloopers” for their own enjoyment (in addition to the main photos).

I also loved how color-coordinated they were. I mean, that’s Pinterest-worthy, right there! Don’t forget to check out their fun bloopers at the bottom of this post 🙂

Poornejad Family & BYU Graduation {Seattle Graduation Photographer}

Can I just say how much I love repeat clients? It’s so much fun to develop a relationship with a family and watch their family evolve over the years! Nafiseh was one of my first clients, and I was disappointed to hear they were moving to Pennsylvania, so it was quite the surprise to hear from them when they came back for their graduation from BYU! I had the honor of finally meeting Lena (their daughter).

It was good to catch up with them and discover that everything was going very well for them up in Pennsylvania! I wish them nothing but the best now that they’ve both graduated with their PhDs!

Grand Opening: Seattle, Washington

I have big news! My business has moved to Washington!

I am beginning the new year in a brand new city and state — Seattle, Washington! We’re actually living in Issaquah (outside of Seattle). Our family has relocated for a great opportunity for Brighton in a major video game hub, Bellevue. We’re very sad to leave our home, friends, and family in Salt Lake, but life has its way of sending you down unexpected journeys.

Our December was spent celebrating the holidays with my visiting parents, packing up a trailer, constantly moving between an empty house and a hotel room, and finally, moving to our new home with our three animals, my parents, and two stuffed cars! We landed here on January 2nd, and we’re now getting settled in to a new lifestyle.

With that being said, I am now open for business in Washington! Give me all of the mossy green forests, alpine lakes, and big city life. If you’d like to book a session, please reach out via the Contact form.

Katie contacted me wanting family photos in a beautiful setting that were vibrant in color! We planned for July 1st, the Saturday of 4th of July weekend and went up to Little Cottonwood. Her little boys showed their personalities. My favorite moment of the session was when D got up on Cameron’s shoulders and then LICKED the top of his head! Oh man, kids will be kids! Dad took it in stride and it made for a memorable moment.

Enjoy the colorful summer moments of the J family!

Crouchet Family {Utah Valley Family Photographer}

My friend Chasten, his wife Alysse, and his son Wyatt are some of the biggest Disney fans I’ve ever met! In fact, Chasten and Alysse met while working at Disney World in Florida where they fell in love. What a perfect fairytale ending for them! Alysse is a dancer which was really fun to see in her poses. I was pretty impressed with her skills!

While we were aiming for a beautiful poppy-filled session, we ended up getting a different treat of this beautiful sunset in Alpine, UT. Their son, Wyatt, was so happy to play the entire time which was just the icing on the cake!

To infinity & beyond!
