the blog!!

I LOVED working with these kids – and their mom and dad are pretty great too – they cracked me up the entire time we were together. They have amazing smiles, superb dance moves and the best jokes. I really love working with families year after year, I love to watch them grow and change each […]

There are some people who you know are meant to be a part of your life, who are placed in it at just at the right moment and who make such a huge impact on your world.  As Christmas is only a week away, and I find myself once again missing my family in Utah, […]

While I was in Utah last month, I was able to take several of my siblings photos {look for all their blog posts in the next few days}. This is my sister and her two beautiful girls. We had so much fun going up American Fork Canyon to Tibble Fork to take their family photos. […]

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!!

When Patti contacted me for a mother/daughter session I was SO excited. I loved their last session so much and I was so excited to work with them again. Her girls are just the cutest and I knew that we would have a great time together. We tried to wait as long as we could […]

Many of you know that my sister-in-law Jennifer passed away in May of 2017. As you can imagine, being a single dad to 4 little kids has been REALLY, REALLY hard for my brother Ryan. In July of 2017, he met an amazing woman, Jamie, and they started dating. In October, I went home for Skylar’s […]
