Utah Bridal Photographer- Peter & Brianna, Salt Lake Capitol Building & Draper Temple

When Brianna told me her plan for her first look I was so excited! I love it when brides get creative with their shoots. There’s a short window of time when the blossoms are on the trees and I always love shooting at the capitol building during this time because it is just gorgeous. Today these 2 get hitched and I’m so excited to spend the day with them and their family and friends!

Utah Senior Photographer- Tanner, Alpine Utah

I shot Tanner’s older brother’s senior pictures several years ago and then did some updated portraits for his parents a few months later. We did his pictures around his neighborhood and it was awesome! Right behind their backyard there’s a giant lot for sale that is filled with tall pine trees. Apparently it used to be a Christmas tree lot and it got out of control. I was super excited about it. I’ve never shot a senior boy that changed outfits so much, but it was pretty easy because we shot right next to his house. Tanner is secretly the next member of 1 Direction and a Hollister model in his spare time. JK! But doesn’t he look like he could be??

Utah Family Photographer- Lippard, Capitol Building

Baby Kate is only a month old! I think my baby is little till I hold a brand new baby! It’s crazy how fast they grow up. This family is so fun and I’m sooo sad they are moving to Texas this summer! I’ve really enjoyed getting to know them over the past year and wish they were staying in our neighborhood.

Utah Senior Photographer- Marilyn, Peace Gardens

I think the first time I photographed Marilyn was 5 years ago. She was just a little girl then and in a blink of an eye she is graduating! What?? When she showed up to the shoot I had to do a double take because she looks exactly like her sister, Rin. Her mom, Stacy, was bummed I didn’t bring my baby to the shoot! I told her I would have if I knew she wanted to play with her during it. So, If you want to play with my baby during your shoot, let me know! 😛 I told Marilyn she needed to marry a guy that will give her red-headed babies because her red hair is ALLLLL the heart eyes! I married a red-head and unfortunately I don’t think my genes will allow us a red-head. But I’m still praying and wishing for one!

Utah Family Photographer- Rasmussen, Capitol Building

Spring is so unpredictable and the day I did my mini shoots this spring was pretty cold, windy, and rainy. Though I love shooting in the rain because of how pretty it looks in pictures, it’s not ideal for little kids. Especially kids that recently moved to Utah from Arizona! Considering the bummer weather, this family was great and the kids did their very best to be happy!

Utah Family Photographer- Christensen, Capitol Building

I haven’t seen this family since the twins were like 3. Michele was one of my Young Women leaders when she was pregnant with them! This family was so great. Despite the rain and chilly weather they were so happy and fun to photograph!

Utah Wedding Photographer- Reed & Kelsey, Timpanogos Temple & Gardner Village

I’m going to start this post out by saying I’m sad these 2 live in Denver. I’d totally make them be my husband and I’s friends if they lived here. Second I’m going to say what a champ these 2 were all day in the rain. It rained their whole day. And Kelsey had to re do her hair like 10x probably. I LOVE how the rain makes pictures look though so I wasn’t too disappointed.

Utah Engagement Photographer- Larz & Ashlee- Olympic Village, Capitol Building

I’m 95% sure Larz was the first family member I met from my husband’s family. I met him apx an hour before Kyle asked me to officially be his girlfriend. In the 2.5 years I’ve known him, this is by far the happiest I’ve ever seen him. I’m so glad he found Ashlee and I’m ecstatic that she fits so well into the family. Sometimes I’m nervous when I shoot friends or family engagements that the couple will feel weird to kiss so much in front of me, but these 2 gladly took the opportunity to be commanded to kiss. When you’re engaged everyone seems to tell you don’t kiss too much and I tell my couples during their shoot to kiss apx every 10 seconds. This is probably why engagement shoots are so fun for everyone! 😉

I look forward to taking their pictures as their family grows in the future.

Millie’s 1/2 Birthday

If you know me at all, you know half birthdays are my thing. I love them! When I tell someone happy half birthday it throws them off. Most people don’t keep track of this so it’s super exciting to me to remember some people’s half birthdays to make an ordinary day a little more fun. So when Millie had her first half birthday I had to do something for her. I made her this little crown and made my husband do a shoot with her. It was pretty chilly and windy when we did the shoot but Millie handled it like a champ.

Utah Family Photographer- Krebs Family, Wheeler Farm

I love this family. They used to be our next-door neighbors and Lia still calls me Brinana. They aren’t our next-door neighbors anymore, but they still live in our neighborhood and I’m 90% sure Lia has (or at least had) a crush on my husband (I totally get it, he’s pretty awesome). There are always a ton of dogs at Wheeler Farm and this family has a big Black Lab. The kids love dogs and they literally asked every single dog owner we passed if they could pet their dog. It was adorable and hilarious how much they love dogs.
