Family Reunion Photoshoot //Tony's Grove // Utah Family Photographer

Spring is here with Summer close to follow and it's the BEST TIME to book your Family Reunion photo shoot.  I just heard from a grand daughter of a family I shot for this past summer.  Her sweet grandma booked me, and she and I had talked a lot this past summer setting up the shoot, talking details of what was important to her, printing out some large gorgeous canvases from their shoot, and I just grew to love her so much.  She was so sweet and I remember after the photo shoot she pulled me into her arms and kissed both my cheeks.  Her grand daughter texted that she just passed away.  Not even a year after we did the photos that meant so much to her.  How this touched my heart.  This life goes so swiftly, and recording these memories for the next generation is so incredibly important!  I know they meant so much to her. Don't put it off another year... you never know what the year will bring.  Now is the time to be sure you preserve what is most important in this world...your family. 

I have had the privilege to photograph this family below for the past couple of years and I love them so much!  Every session with them has been so beautiful and such a fun time with an amazing family.

Nikki Montgomery Family//Studio Station //Utah Family Photographer

Studio Station is a great little studio for an indoor session when things are not so warm outside!  It made for the perfect spot for this darling families photos.  And let's just stop for a moment and check out how amazingly beautiful this mama is!!  Tia always slays when it comes to making my moms, brides, and commercial clients look smokin!  This family was so much fun, their outfits were on point, and they were sooooo good!  I loved all the natural smiles and interactions they gave me. That little guy cracked me up and melted my heart all at the same time!  Seriously a perfect session!  Thanks for trusting me with your memories!

Utah Family Photographer//Sherice Family// Family Photos

Sherice found me on Instagram.  She is an incredible writer and an incredible story teller.  I always enjoy reading what she writes on her blog.  Check it out here: http://smalltownsquirrel.blogspot.com/ She is honest, open, candid, and funny.  She is definitely the kind of person I love to be around. And here is a post she wrote about our shoot together: http://smalltownsquirrel.blogspot.com/2017/07/the-importance-of-family-pictures.html

She asked me to take her families photos because they hadn't had one together in years. She said they had never been photographed professionally!  We met up the canyon in Salt Lake at Storm mountain and had a little hike around.  They kept me laughing.  They are such a hilarious family full of life and fun.  The love and care they have for each other showed in every moment they were together.  I know there are imperfect moments in every family too, but flaws in family is what makes it FAMILY!

Every time I do photos for a family it feels like they become my family for a moment.  And being a part of this family would be so much fun and full of laughs.  Thank you for trusting me with such special parts of your life and memories together.

Emma Neilsen Family

These guys are so adorable!  Having three girls myself, I have a special place in my heart for other moms and dads with three little girls, and look at sweet these three are!  We had a lot of fun playing together on this shoot and playing games for giggles.  I love this sweet mama too!  She is always so kind, and I love her cute French accent!  Thanks for coming to play with me every year!  I love my repeat customers, which is why when I raise prices, I still give my families who have been with me year after year a great deal.  I love them, and I appreciate them.  YOU are who make this dream possible for me...to be able to record family memories for generations to come.
