When I was pregnant with my second little guy, my friends, Talon and Emily announced that they were pregnant too!! In the span of just 3 months, there were 4 of us girls in our group of friends that were pregnant! Three of us with boys! We are still waiting on the sweet baby girl who is due any day now!
I first met Emily at my wedding! I had no idea who she was though! She showed up with one of David's friends and she hung out! It wasn't until a couple of years later when we moved here to Utah that I realized who she was. She was waiting for her missionary (Talon) to come home. A few short weeks after he came home, they were engaged! They were one of my first weddings that I had the opportunity to photograph and I hope I will be there to capture their sweet family grow!
When Emily and Talon found out that they were pregnant, Talon was so nervous! I remember when he saw my second kiddo for the first time and he almost had a panic attack thinking about holding his own baby. But watching Talon hold his sweet baby boy, change his diaper and look at Emily in awe, I could tell that he is an awesome dad.
Watching your friends become parents is such an awesome thing! I am excited to watch this little family grow.
And by the way, if you couldn't tell, this family is a Seahawks family. Through and through!

This is why I am a lifestyle photographer and family videographer. I want to capture your family, in this moment, right now. Because this time is so fleeting. And having these memories is all that we will have left someday. Let’s capture your memories now. Don’t wait for those 10 pounds to come off. Don’t wait until you have fancy clothes. It honestly doesn’t matter. The time is now.
Paisley certainly loved her new little brother. She was all about kisses and loves. One of my favorite parts of this session was towards the end when Paisley and her dad showed me all of their dance moves! They even had their own routine! I hope that they will continue to dance with each other over the years!
We met up Provo Canyon so early in the morning! But in order to get the best light and have a happy baby, we decided that an early morning session would be best. And it was! It was the BEST!! We got there at 7 am and the grass was still dewy. It was just peaceful! I love this location in Provo Canyon because it looks amazing all year round. That tall grass and beautiful mountain view make the perfect setting for any kind of photo session.
I love photographing in this field. It’s in a really unexpected place in Highland, UT and it is perfect! The golden fields bring such a warmth to the pictures. It is one of my favorite places to go for the family mini sessions I photograph! It's great because it looks the same all year round, so it is great if you want a location that looks great during Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer!
I love babies!!! I love photographing newborn lifestyle sessions. I love capturing sweet moments with brothers and sisters and with mom and dad! I love how comfortable people are in their own home. I love seeing a family in their surroundings. People, especially children, are at ease! They don’t have to worry about making a mess in someone else’s space, or not bringing the right snack for their kiddos, it is seriously a win-win!
Photographing a birth had been on my mind for a long while. It was kind of a bucket list item that I was aching to fulfill. So I asked one of my very pregnant friends if she would be willing to let me photograph the birth of her son! I was incredibly lucky because she said yes! I was so excited to start this adventure as a birth photographer.
If you look at this first picture, you will see four beautiful little girls. I photographed the sweet little girl on the left's newborn photos a few years ago when the twin girls were just a little under 2 years old! They are now almost four and have a brand new baby sister! I loved watching the girls aw and smile at the new baby.
I arrived at the location, and I looked over and saw this beautiful family get out of their car. I saw their outfits and those adorable cheeks on that baby boy and I got so excited for this mini session! Dakota's dress is one of my favorite's of all time! It looks so flattering on her. Seeing her in it, took me all of my control not to go home and buy it myself! If you want the perfect example on how to dress your family for family photos, this family is it!
