There is nothing in this world more constant than the evolution of humanity; through generations we find our history and our future. What a beautiful thing we have in family that we can look both backward and forward and discover who we are. I had the awesome opportunity to photograph Kelli and her daughter, when they came into town, along with her mother and grandmother for a four generation photo shoot. Kelli wanted to do these photos at her grandma's home to capture everything she cherished about growing up-the traditions passed down in this family. Her grandma does beautiful crochet work, so we made sure to get the generation of hands on top of one of her beautiful pieces. Her grandfather has been a gardner for so long, and they have this amazing garden on the side of their home (literally, they bought the lot to build their dream home, but after building two other houses next to it, decided to settle and build a beautiful garden instead!). Kelli fondly remembers sitting on her grandparent's front porch just talking and being together. What an incredible experience to celebrate life with this family. And if that wasn't enough, her grandma sent home dish towels and a dish rag that she crocheted...almost too pretty to use! It touched my heart. A special thanks to Darla for assisting me!
I'd love to do some mini sessions in the fall for families to use on Christmas Cards (which I will also have available), but would like to get some ideas on what kind of goodies you'd like included. I'd love to take into consideration what my clients REALLY want! Do you want an inclusive session fee with a shortened session just to get the essential shots? Do you just want cards included? What about prints or files? Let me know what you think!

Ooey, gooey, sticky-sweet, sugary, creamy LOVE. That's how I feel about Stephanie and Jamie. They just oozed adoration. And, can I just say, I'm about as in love with them too? We had such a great time at their engagement shoot at the SLC Library. The jazz festival was going on in the street just west of the library so we got to listen to some fabulous songs while on location. And I do have to say that Jamie reminds me of Christian Bael (ummm, yeah, do you dream about him too? Okay, maybe I don't really...but I would if I could), and Stephanie could not have been more adorable---and that hair is my dream hair. I love it.
I couldn't help going over the top on the processing on this next one. She was such a gorgeous barbie, I just had to throw one in.
I had so much fun going to my new favorite location in Farmington with my favorite little red-head, Annika and her beautiful blue-eyed sister Sydney. It was just a beautiful morning with pretty lighting and people fishing. Yes, I'm soooo sorry if we bothered your quiet, peaceful morning! I tried to get in and out quickly!
It's amazing one of them wasn't crawling away in this ONE shot together :)
