Millie Turns 1

I can’t believe I have a 1 year old. It really seems like 2 weeks ago I was holding her for the first time and now she’s almost walking and becoming more independent every day. I love this little girl more than I ever dreamt possible. She makes me happy. Also, I’m offended. She didn’t like my cake.

The Norris Family flew me out to Denver to do Sarah’s first year pictures and their family pictures. Poor little Sarah got super sick and was hospitalized on her birthday, just the day before this shoot. You can’t tell in the pictures though because she was a happy girl. I’m also these kids’ aunt so it was super fun to be able to do their pictures. I absolutely adore Matthew’s faces in some of these especially. Enjoy!

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.

Millie’s 1st Valentines Day

My baby is almost 5 months old! Time goes so fast when you’re watching a baby grow every day. She is the happiest and the best baby. I adore her. I have always really loved Valentines Day and actually made these heart strings in college to decorate a dimly lit basement apartment I was living in at the time. In case anyone wants to know how cheap I was, I used paint swatch samples from Home Depot. It made it an affordable college craft and I’ve used them every year since for decorating for Valentines Day. There’s something extremely fun about celebrating every holiday right now. Every holiday is Millie’s first and therefore as a photographer/mom/memory keeper I always take pictures of Millie in her specific holiday outfit. This particular little shoot was extra special because MILLIE LEARNED HOW TO ROLL OVER! I got it in a series of pictures. And because I was so giddy about this moment I was seeing through my lens, my focus is off in the pictures. But I’m still thrilled to have this milestone of hers saved in picture form. Excuse me while I go cry because she’s not my teeny tiny baby anymore.

Expect more blogs throughout the year of this little one because she’s the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.


I really wanted to kiss her with lipstick but I don’t own a bright or dark enough color apparently so they don’t show up that well….haha

Meet Millie

This sweet baby joined our family on September 25, 2016 at 9:33 PM after 18 hours of labor, 3 hours of pushing and a C-Section. She weighed 7 pounds 14 ounces, was 21.5 inches long and her head was in the 100th percentile. We are completely smitten and had no idea how much our hearts could love such a tiny little bundle. Meet Millie Doris Macfarlane.

This family is from India. They are so sweet and I loved working with them. Neha’s mom was here from India for baby Anya’s birth too. Also, I loved this family’s apartment! It was in downtown salt lake and the views were amazing!

These kids smiled extra good because they were being bribed with Happy Meals if they smiled the whole session. I think they more than earned it! This family is beautiful and so sweet! I hope I get to take their family pictures for years to come!
