From a favorite engagement session, a touching birth story, to a fun family session! I hope to photograph this family for years to come. The love they have for this little man is abundant. He is their world. And look at that little face! Can you blame them!?
My fall schedule is about full. If you are a last minute planner like me and still need to get those family photos scheduled, send me a message and let's get you on the books. It's one of my very favorite times of the year for photos, it's gorgeous, crisp, and boot and hot chocolate season is my very favorite ever! So let's go play together!
I love the fall colors from this session, Fall always makes for beautiful photos. My fall is booking out very quickly, so if you are wanting family photos this fall, now is the time to get on my calendar. Be sure to message me and let's see when we can get you in for photos in time to send out cards for the holidays… See more of this session on the blog!
Kristin is an amazing photographer herself - so it's always a little intimidating when another photographer asks you to photograph a special occasion for them. But I was excited to meet her and be a part of her special day.
Kristin was in a little car accident three weeks before her due date, so she went to the hospital to be checked and they decided to keep her and monitor her. It was a Saturday night and I received a text from her letting me know she was in the hospital. Since she was so early, I still had some shoots lined up, so I was really hopeful it would still work out that she'd have it when I would be able to make it.
She labored all day Saturday and Sunday, she was at a three for a really long time. By the time she got to a five and they decided to induce her it was 5pm. At nine there wasn’t any change so I decided to go to bed, at midnight I received a text that she was at a 9.5 and there was pressure so hurry! Haha. Births are so unpredictable. When I got there they were all smiles and Kristin was so adorable and funny. She had a cute sarcastic sense of humor and was enjoyable to be around. It didn’t take long at all for that sweet baby girl to make her appearance, a couple pushes and out came a dark head of hair, it took her a minute to start crying, but no time at all to want to nurse. She was a strong heathy sweet baby girl.
Watching Chris and Kristin together was so sweet. Chris spent the whole time loving on Kristin, leaning in to caress against her cheek, holding her hand. Guys! Take note! When your wife is having a baby, there is nothing better then a supportive husband who is right there, easing the wives worries or just loving on her and being supportive every minute of what she needs. Kristin said Chris is like a lion, he is so snuggly and adorable with his girls, I loved watching how he’d just snuggle his head right into them both. There was so much happiness in that little room. Little 5lb Edelweiss is going to be one loved little girl.
I had the privelege of meeting this sweet family when Celsey hired me for her sweet little babies birth story. See that here
I had such a great experience getting to know some of the family during the birth, and they were all so sweet, I was excited when Celsey's mom Cheryl asked if I could do their extended family photos. I have a sweet spot for extended families. And this family has joined that sweet spot in my heart.
I love when everyone is able to get together, and I think they are so incredibly important. There is such a short time in life when you really get together with all your siblings and their families and do things together. Eventually everyone has their own little families, and the times you get together with your siblings families become fewer and farther between. Take advantage of getting those photos and those memories anytime you can!
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!
Lyndsie has been my BIGGEST supporter in my business. Honestly she's been with me from the beginning (when I wasn't so great) and yet, she's stuck with having me do her photos every year. I just love her. She is seriously the kindest person you could meet and her husband is so patient and kind. He's crazy about his family, and they are equally crazy about him!
