Logan Birth Photographer//Brielle Maternity//Birth Stories

I met this spunky mama at Bunco night, and she was so sassy and so much fun!  I was excited when she called me to see if I could cover her birth story.  Of course with my Birth stories I always offer a mini maternity shoot too, so I was able to spend some time with her and her husband before sweet little babies birth.  Her birth story was a first time experience with the mama being in a tough spot during delivery, and it had all our emotions coming out.  Can't wait to share that story with you on another blog post! Stay tuned!

Logan Utah Birth Story//Celsey Birth Story//Logan Regional Hospital

Having a baby is a tough, emotional, exciting experience.  Celsey experienced every emotion during her birth story.  This is one mama who adores her babies.  Everything she does is to make a better life for her little family, she loves them so much.  She's such a gorgeous kind, tender mama, I've loved getting to know her and see her interact with her little ones.  

Her room was full with all the people who love her and were so excited for this baby to come.  She had support on both sides, from both sets of parents, and her own little family, she was surrounded in love and care.  There was a lot of excitement for this sweet little baby, and just look how adorable and perfect she is!  I love watching babies come into the world, there is nothing quite like it - nothing makes you feel so incredibly full in life as a new little baby.

Congratulations to your sweet little family Celsey!  You are such an amazing woman to watch, I love your drive and your passion, and your authenticity!

Logan Birth Story// Birth Photographer //Lauren & Brandyn Hawkes

I'm playing catch up with all my beautiful clients sessions.  I hate being behind on blogging sessions, but some things happened this month that made it so blogging had to go on the back burner.  But here I am picking up with all the stories I've been dying to share.  

This beautiful couple!  I can't say enough good about them!  They were one of my very favorite engagement sessions ever. Check out their romantic session Here. 

I was over the moon when Lauren won my drawing for a free birth story.  These two are so much fun to be around and there is always a lot of laughing.  I asked how marriage has been and they said they still make each other laugh every day.  There you have it - the secret to a happy marriage!  

Brandyn stayed right by her side, making her laugh and smile.  He'd sing silly songs to the baby, leaning over her stomach, putting his mouth to her tummy and singing out loud.  The nurses laughed and loved it.  Brandyn is a writer.  He would take breaks when Lauren was resting and he would go and record the whole process taking place.  Every detail was written down lovingly, recorded for all time.  Little Topher (a name made from all the Christopher's they have on both sides of the family) will have his birth story to look back on in photos and in word, every moment of it.  What a sweet gift. 

I'm so happy to see you two become parents.  You are amazing people and Topher is a lucky boy to call you mom and dad!  Love you both!

Debi King Family// Utah Family Photographer // Logan Utah

Debi is one of the dance teachers at Cache Valley Civic Ballet, and she's been Audris dance teacher.  She is so cute and fun with the little kiddos! I've had the privilege of photographing her cute daughter dancing for the last couple years, and I love seeing the growth, and the talent this girl has. 

When she called and asked me about doing photos, she knew she wanted them in front of their barn behind their house, and after seeing it, I can't blame her.  I loved getting to meet all Debi's kids, they were so much fun and we had some good laughs. When Dad brought out their "Fat Cat" I could NOT stop laughing, I have NEVER seen a cat this big before.  We just HAD to have photos with it of course.  Thanks for keeping things so fun you guys!

The lush green gardens at Salt Lake City Temple make the dreamiest background for a couple in love. This bright spring day was no exception as these two joined their hearts and families forever.

New babies bring so much change to the world with them! Late nights, a zillion dirty diapers, spit up for daysss and enough smiles to make your cheeks hurt. This little lady joined the Rayfield family of four just a few months ago

Their sweet momma is raising them to be strong, confident women someday while she enjoys the little ladies they are today. I'm sure, like all other moms, she will tell you that it's all going too fast.

One day after Brittney got back from Israel, he just showed up on her doorstep. He didn't say a single word, just walked up and kissed her. It was their first kiss and "the rest is history" they said.

These two kiddos were so cute and sweet with each other and also their parents! It gave me all the heart eyes. Their big, fun personalities were so fun to capture from behind the lens.

This was such a gorgeous backyard wedding. It was an intimate group, just their close family and friends under a huge, beautiful willow tree. They had all different types of wooden chairs arranged under the tree and each was so unique that it made the ceremony picture perfect.

The sky at this wedding was incredible! It didn't downpour like it looked like it would, but it wouldn't have mattered if it did, these two wouldn't have noticed. They were so wrapped up in one another and so happy to be married they would have danced in the rain anyways.

Building relationships with my clients is important to me. I want them to feel like I know them well enough to take the photographs they like best. I want them to feel comfortable around me, and I want them to be themselves in front of my camera.

Remember my all time favorite first look? The cute groom-to-be was jumping up and down when he saw her because he was so excited? Well these are my favorite pictures from their wedding day. It was a beautiful, happy day and I'm so glad I got to be a part of it!
