Fall Family Photography // Mantua, Utah

Hi there! My name is Jami and I get to be the guest writer for Shanda's blog today! I'm excited because, basically, I just want to gush all about how much I love using Shanda as our family's photographer! 

After a photo shoot with her, my husband goes on and on about how fast and efficiently she works, and how he wishes she did our wedding photography. He loves that she doesn't tweak us into these staged poses that are supposed to look "comfortable" but really makes him feel awkward. I love it because she is so fast, there is no time for husband to get sick of it and start giving her lame/fake smiles! Also, I don't have to even worry about reapplying lipgloss or fixing my girl's hair, she gets all her pictures taken before any clothes/hair/makeup gets messed up! IT'S AWESOME, YOU GUYS!

I met Shanda in the labor and delivery room right before our baby girl was born. The photographer I picked couldn't make it, and Shanda came as her substitute. BEST THING EVER! She took the most amazeballs pictures for our birth story, and to this day- I still tear up looking at them. She captured all the right moments, at exactly the right time. You can see all the emotion we were feeling as we met our firstborn. I will forever cherish those pictures she took for us. If you wanna check out that post, you can see it here. She will definitely be doing the birth story for our second in early March!

Side note: our baby was sick this day, BUT STILL Shanda somehow made her laugh and giggle and smile for some darling pictures that are most definitely going into frames on our walls. She can do anything you guys, and she can do it CRAZY GOOD!! #teamshandaforlife
