When Lauren contacted me to schedule her photo shoot this year, her only request was that we do them early this year, so it’s not FREEZING like it was last year!! Last year we had to re-schedule several times and ended up doing their family session on a freezing cold November day. This year was […]

OH. MY. GOSH. These might be my favorite pictures EVER, like I want to print them really, super big and put them on my own walls!! They turned out so adorable, and I can’t wait to see what Marie does with them!!! Everything was perfect, the lighting, the colors, the girls, EVERYTHING!!!! I could not […]

I had SO much fun working with the Pilizota family!!! When Solange asked me about family pictures, she didn’t want them to feel too posed, or unnatural.  She wanted them to feel joyful and candid. I assured her that we would capture their family in fun, playful photos and we did just that. I love how […]

I’m so glad the DaSilva family asked me to take their family photos again this year. Somehow we got our times mixed up and by the time we started we had about 45 minutes to do their family session, and a baptism session. But I wasn’t worried at all!!! I work really hard to be […]

I casually commented that I wanted to come…..and of course, they both agreed that I […]

They believe in empowering, encouraging and loving on their clients, and their students. Part of taking these classes is having exclusive membership in their […]

Several years ago this young elder was serving in our area as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  I loved having the missionaries in our home. I have 5 brothers, 3 of them served missions around the world. One served in Virginia, one in South Africa and one in the […]

Nauvoo holds a special place in my heart. It’s where the Mormon Pioneers were driven out of their homes and land as they searched for a place to live in freedom. It’s the last place they settled before they trekked west to the SLC Valley. It’s a sacred place, if you’ve ever been there you […]

During the summer many families gather for family reunions and vacations and it’s a great time to capture extended family photos. I know that sometimes the last thing you want to think about is coordinating everyone for a family photo….especially when it’s SO hard to coordinate so many people, but extended family pictures are some […]
