Jory and Brooke always knew of each other, but it wasn't until right before Jory left on his mission that the crush started. All those years ago at Cafe Rio, he saw her and asked for her number. He texted her, but nothing really came of it. Then he came home, and she left for her mission. Then she came back and he remembered her!
A couple of dates later and they were both off the market for good!
When they announced they were pregnant, I knew they would be awesome parents. Jory would be able to pass down his love (obsession) with the Denver Broncos and Utah Jazz and Brooke would be able to teach him to be the kind and loving person that she is.
This newborn lifestyle session was amazing and everything a photographer could dream of! Their home is beautiful and the way they look at little Rhett makes everyone go "AWWWWWWWW!" I love you guys! Thank you for letting me capture this special time in your life.
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!
You realize that it's been a few years since you have done family photos. So you schedule them, and realize OH CRAP! I HAVE TO ACTUALLY GET MY FAMILY DRESSED AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO WEAR!!
Trust me, I feel ya. I have been there and I want to help! So here are some tips to help you dress you and your family to look amazing.
Meet one of the best and newest families around! This is no ordinary family. If you look at that hot looking couple, at this time, they were engaged and getting ready to blend their two families together. Mandy and Brandon are incredible parents! I love that they wanted to include their kids in their engagement photos! And we had an absolute blast!
Hi! I'm Amber Prusse. I'm a Wyoming girl who was planted and then blossomed in the great state of Utah when I married a Utah boy. I'm mostly known for my love of Harry Potter, Sodalicious and being a boy mom. Although I am surrounded by mud and dinosaur loving boys at home, there is nothing I love more than the beauty of capturing beautiful milestones in life. I'm a wedding and family photographer, who believes in creating and photographing beautiful moments that you and your family will cherish for years to come. I have served over a hundred families and brides. I love becoming best friends with grandmas during your wedding and making the silliest faces to make little people smile.
The Hafen family has gone through a lot of trials before sweet baby Owen was born. Shanda suffered through several miscarriages between her sweet girl Aria and Owen. It was such a struggle and Shanda was kind enough to share some words with me about her experience with bringing Owen to the world that I would love to share. Her words about her love for her babies here on earth and in heaven are ones of hope. And I loved reading her experience. I hope you will too.
I absolutely love in-home family sessions. Especially when there is a new baby involved. As some of you know, I used to be more of a styled newborn photographer. I would put naked babies in cute and adorable poses, wrap them up in swaddles and put them in baskets. I think the styled newborn photography, is absolutely adorable. It is definitely a work of art. And it's a lot of work. I recently have changed to a more lifestyle type of photography and I am loving it!
The Day family, in my opinion, is one of the cutest families in all of Utah. They are everything a family photographer could ever dream of! Their style, that red hair, those snuggles, and kisses made everything perfect.
One of my favorite things to do when I have family sessions, is to get mom and dad away for a second. I love taking engagement like photos of the mom and dad because I think it is so important for parents to be able to look at pictures of them in love. When you are married for awhile, you don't take time to take kissy selfies. It's all about the kids! I know that, because I fall into the same rut. But when I get moms and dads in front of the camera, there is a whole new vibe to the shoot. It is so important for children to see their parents in love!
