Utah Family Photographer: Macfarlane Family, Provo Canyon

It only snowed once while I was in Utah and it honestly was colder here in South Carolina when we got home than it was our whole time in Utah. It was a big bummer! We went up the canyon to find some good snow for pictures. Shooting a family with all the kids old enough to look and smile (with non fake smiles) is so different than with little kids! I almost feel like I don’t really earn my money this way because I don’t feel completely exhausted by then end from making crazy noises and being totally ridiculous! This family was great, after all, they’re my husband’s aunt, uncle and cousins!

We went home to Utah for a few weeks for Christmas and I shot a wedding and several families while there! Here’s a few of the Nye Family.

Utah Family Photographer: Proctor Family, Utah Lake

This is the 3rd year in a row I’ve shot for this cute family. I feel like it’s a rare thing for any family to be so on top of and consistent with their pictures but this family is! Melissa said she was not looking forward to having to find a new photographer after I moved, but luckily I was there at Christmas time to shoot for them again. Utah Lake is the most beautiful in the winter. Let’s be honest, Utah Lake in the Summer is super smelly and has so many bugs! But look how beautiful it is frozen and with snow on the shore!

The riverwalk is one of the best places I’ve found here to do shoots so far because it offers a variety of backgrounds. A cute bridge, Spanish moss, a river, a canal, and brick and urban backgrounds too! These kids were perfect. They all had real smiles for me and they didn’t even make me be too goofy to get them! I’m glad mom snuck for a few pictures too.

South Carolina Family Photographer- Francom Family, Saluda Shoals

This family is ADORABLE! Don’t you think? I met Brittany one of my first few weeks here and took their first family pictures they’ve had in several years. One thing you can tell from being around them is how much the kids love each other. They were so sweet with one another and you could tell how much sincerity there was amongst them! I’m so excited to be getting a few shoots on my calendar now. Let me know if you need pictures!

Colorado Family Photographer- Norris Family, Hudson Gardens

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!

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.

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!

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 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.
