Urban Senior Session

Heber City Photographer, Park City Photographer, Seniors, Teens

Park City is a fantastic spot for senior photos, especially if your graduate wants an urban vibe. I truly love getting to chat with seniors during their photo session. I get to find out about upcoming plans about college or missionary, peace corp, or military service. Some know exactly what they want to do and some (like me) will probably change their major several times before they figure it out. It’s such an exciting–and a little bit scary–time to head off on your own, but I can tell you that the seniors I have had the opportunity to photograph always leave me impressed and hopeful for what’s ahead.

Smooshy Face

Uncategorized

Soft baby skin…sweet baby smell…just gotta smoosh your face right into that cheek.
Photos like this need to be up on walls, not in a file folder on your computer. I am a firm believer in prints. Let me help you decorate your home with images you and your kids will always cherish.

Mommy and Me

Motherhood photos sure tug at my heart. I love capturing the love true between a mom and her babies, young and old. I’m considering setting up a day of mom and me mini-sessions that include framed and printed image(s) ready for your wall. So watch for upcoming details on that because spaces will be limited. For now, just enjoy the sweetness here with one of my favorite repeat customers and her sweet three-year-old.

Perhaps the World’s Best Photoshoot Baby

This was the shortest newborn session I have ever shot.This guy was perfectly sleepy, never needed to eat or have his diaper changed, and let me move and mold him any way I wanted. And these three photos are sure to be gorgeous in my Storytellers Gallery–a matted, framed three-photo sequence ready to hang on your wall.

PS–Don’t worry if your baby isn’t the best photoshoot baby. Most babies aren’t, and newborn shoots typically take around two hours. That’s OK!!! That’s what I plan for. But here are three tips to for a smoother newborn photoshoot:

1- Try to keep your baby awake before you come to the photoshoot. A great way to do this is to give them a nice, long bath before you arrive. They’ll be awake and clean. Then you can feed them, and they’ll probably fall asleep on the way to the studio and be sleepier throughout the shoot.

2- Bring a pacifier. Even if your little one doesn’t seem to like a pacifier, it can be a life-saver in a shoot. Those green ones they give you at the hospital are great. We’ll help your newborn into a position, let them suck on it until they settle, and then slip it out when we’re ready for the photo. It works!

3- And for you, be ready for my studio to be warm! I use a heater both for warmth and white noise. Newborns settle right down when they are all snuggly-warm and have that drone in the background. I’ve had parents realize they need a fan when they see how quickly the noise can quiet a newborn.

It’s That Time . . .

Time to get your graduating senior photographed for announcements . . . and because it is a HUGE moment for them. I love imagining what lies ahead for seniors. You get to live in an apartment with friends, study what excites you, meet people from all over the country and even the world, and talk about big ideas and how to make the world a better place. Can you tell I really liked college?

Birds in the Snow

I love when families want a gallery wall with a family portrait and individuals. Kids love to see themselves on the walls of their home. They feel important and loved. Capturing kids in all their stages is one of my favorite things about photography. It freezes time and lets us revisit it. The older my kids get the more sentimental I am about their photographs from years past.

Sealing Day

Baptism, Children, Families, Heber City Photographer, Park City Photographer, Personal, Uncategorized, Wedding

I felt so lucky to be asked to photograph this special day. This is my friend, Natalie, whom I’ve known since our days back in Iowa. We both moved there from Utah with our very little littles and felt far away from our families. After some tough years, she had this glorious day where she was sealed to her sweetheart, Chris. In the LDS faith, sealing is believed to continue relationships beyond this life. Look at those smiles! Pure joy–and totally overrides the fact that we shot these photos in 100-degree noon heat. I’m looking forward to summer, but maybe not¬†that hot!

1 + 2 = 3 little girls

Babies, Children, Families, Heber City Photographer, Infants, Park City Photographer, Uncategorized

I have been so blessed to be able to photograph multiple sets of twins over the years. It is a whole different ball game–trying to get both of them to sleep at the same time and not needing at least one of them to eat or have their diaper changed . . . and I’m just the photographer, not the mother or father!!! So much physical, mental, and emotional devotion to care for these new ones. But you can see the love in these parents’ eyes, and in big sister’s too. It’s the hardest thing you’ve ever done and your greatest joy all at the same time.
