Fresh 48 Newborn Session in Salt Lake City Utah | Baby Luke

Months ago, Kaily and Jake asked their little Reed what they should name his baby brother. And somehow the name Luke stuck! It wasn’t Kaily’s first choice, but as soon as she saw her little boy, she kept saying “he really is a Luke!!” Little baby Luke’s Fresh 48 Newborn Session in the Intermountain Heath Care in Murry, Utah was about as precious as it could get with his two older siblings constantly hugging him, caressing him, and giving soft kisses while whispering “I love you baby Luke.”

The Petersons | Family Photographer in Snow Canyon, St. George Utah

I have absolutely loved working with the Peterson family and it was such a treat to be able to photograph their extended family session again this year down in Southern Utah at the beautiful Snow Canyon state park! Last year we took their family photos in a huge green field so it was really fun to switch everything up entirely!

With all the blossoms in full bloom at the Utah State Capitol, it was time for some beautiful spring family photos for my best friend Jacci! I love her and her family so so much!

Genevieve's Fresh 48 Session | Layton Parkway Hospital

I remember when I had my baby girl just a little over a year ago, I had the hardest time deciding between doing birth photography or a fresh 48 session. A session where the photographer comes in to photograph a piece of those first two days as a family. But after lots of thinking and praying…

Lauren and Nick’s engagement session with the beautiful blossoms at the Utah State Capitol was a dream come true, and not just because of all of the gorgeous blossoms! Nick’s dad had been plotting his son’s marriage to Lauren for quite some time. He’d often tell Lauren that he wanted her to date his son once he came back from church service mission. However, Lauren had her own plans…

LeBaron Family | Utah State Capitol Spring Blossoms Family Session

LeBaron Family | Utah State Capitol Spring Blossoms Family Session

When we first got to the Utah State Capitol for our spring blossoms family session, it was early in the morning, and for a good reason too! It’s near impossible to get any shots like this in the evening because of all the people that are there walking around and picture taking! But because it was early…

Cris + Abbey's First Look | Thomas S. Monson Center Salt Lake City

Cris + Abbey's First Look | Thomas S. Monson Center Salt Lake City

I almost feel like time isn’t fair. It’s slow when you want it to be fast, and too fast when you want it to be slow. This is one of those times where it’s just been too fast!! It only seems like yesterday that I was laughing with Abbey and Cris over our first call together…

I’ll never forget that day that I arrived at the Wellington Reception Center in downtown Ogden for Sadie and Tanner’s wedding. It was a warm afternoon with the sun shining bright and I could feel the excitement and buzz as I made my way into the venue and up the old vintage elevator. When I found Sadie…

Abbey + Chris | Snow Basin Winter Engagements

Abbey + Chris | Snow Basin Winter Engagements

If I had to think of just one thing that I absolutely loved about Chris and Abbey, it would hands-down be how much they laugh. Over the years I’ve spent a long time thinking about what kinds of brides I want to work with and my number one attribute has been joyous couples. People that love to smile and laugh!! And it’s the most kind of beautiful when those couples find me because we then get to make all the magic happen!!

Megan + Alex | Silver Lake Couple's Session

Megan + Alex | Silver Lake Couple's Session

It was just over two years ago that I was photographing Megan and Alex’s winter wedding. I still remember the day like it was yesterday! It rained, sleeted, and snowed that day. Definitely not our favorite weather. I just remember how grateful we all felt that we…
