Just had to give a little shout out to my Father in law, and his fiancee .

I am excited to travel to Idaho next month to document their special day!

Just a few favorites from their engagement session.

Love you guys!





I feel so completely THRILLED! that I was chosen to come take part in the Lime Ricki Swimwear party!

In case you have never heard of Lime Ricki- they freaking ROCK! Seriously!  Womens, Mens and little girls swimwear that is modest, well made, durable, colorful and totally stylish!

Check out their website here:

Three sisters,

by the names of Nicole Bruderer, Colette Callister and  Jennifer Anderson wanted to design modest suits for themselves and their daughters.  Realizing there were a lot of people out there who wanted the same thing they got to work.  From that, Lime Ricki was born!

For the first 3 years they sold the swimsuits out of their homes.  Until they opened their first store.

This Blog Party was to celebrate!  Bloggers came and chatted, and got to know these sisters.  They checked out the swimwear, and even got to take home a suit!

Now I would like to add for all you moms out there who are tired of swimsuits falling apart, or your girls bottoms getting shredded the first time they sit on cement, these swimsuits are SO well made.

My own girls have tested it out and the suits look as good as new!





I know right? I am so lucky that I get to photograph such gorgeous people!

Jayme and Brandon are a match made in heaven. One of those couples that just flows together. They have more than just their obvious great looks going for them.  Genuinely sweet and kind.  Laughter that is infectious, and smiles that go on for miles.

We got away from the cold outdoor weather and went inside the Salt Lake City Capitol building.  The dark overcast skies outside made shooting natural light a tad tricky but I could not be happier with the turn out!  We just bumped up that ISO and spent the afternoon playing and laughing and having an awesome time!

RAWR!

Jayme- you are such a natural beauty!

A little personal touch. Brandon proposed with handcuffs! So, how could we not include them? :)

I am so happy for these two. Not just for them, but for their new family they are starting together.  Both of them coming from marriages before, these two are each blessed with two beautiful children of their own.  Doubling their family, doubling their joy.  The kids are already best friends, you would never know seeing them interact that they were not all siblings already!

They make one big happy family {LOVE}

So of course we had to throw in a second mini session to get them all together!  Sleepy Ridge Golf Course provided a gorgeous setting!

I am so excited for your new journey! I can not wait to see where life takes you and your beautiful family!!!





What I have been up to

Posted on April 20, 2011

A little of this and a little of that,

But a whole lot of this:

We welcomed into the world our precious baby Braddock Dean

Born April 16th

7lbs 10 oz of pure sweetness

As of yesterday at 3 days old

After a scary start to his life with some breathing problems, he is now home and thriving. And we are all so happy and grateful he is here.





You may recognize this gorgeous couple from 2 posts ago :) We actually shot the groomals the day before the wedding!

Annie and Greg’s wedding day was no different, except this time there was no rain. Just beautiful sunny skies! A beautiful afternoon at the Salt Lake City Temple, then off to an outdoor reception filled with food, laughter and lots of love.

This is a massive picture posting. You’ve been warned! :)

My absolute FAV from the day. Annie you are stunning!

There is nothing more tender than the tear drops that fall as Daddy and Daughter dance…

And nothing more pure than the look of pure love as Husband and Wife dance their first dance…





Some people just have that natural flow about them.  Annie was no exception.  This girl just emanates fierceness.

We started off our rainy October day inside the Joseph Smith Memorial Building downtown.   One thing I do LOVE about rainy days, the dramatic atmosphere and lighting. Absolute perfection!

How about this dress? I mean textures galore! So stunning you are Annie, really.

Dress is from Bridal Image in Bountiful, UT.

A touch of personality

We were having so much fun! Then the Groom came, and it was an all out super model session :)

As if I haven’t shown you enough, we headed out into the streets after the rain left us and we were graced with some beautiful sunshine!

Greg, you are such a handsome charm!

All this red could not have been more perfect! Did I mention her wedding colors were red, black and ivory? :) I love red!

Two of my favorite shots from the urban streets of Salt Lake….

There is nothing better than a day full of love, and capturing that love for the keeping!





The Kunz Family {Utah Family Photographer}

Posted on January 10, 2011

This is just how behind I got with bed rest, this adorable family was shot back in October! I know! Better late than never on the blogging right? :)

An absolutely fun family for sure! We caught the last bit of beautiful sunshine weather before the Utah winter blues set in.  These adorable kids had me not only working up a sweat, but they had me laughing! You will see, so many shots that just show how much personality they have!





A family full of boys! I love it! Shy at first, these boys couldn’t fool me! You see, I have 4 older brothers, I know how they work ;)

They were so cooperative throughout the shoot. And trust me, I asked a lot of them.  hee hee  Of course, when you tell them they get to have a balloon fight, it most certainly helps!

A super family that gave me a super fun evening!

Don’t tell me they don’t know the word FIERCE





These beautiful big brown eyes melted my heart!

It may have taken 2 days of shooting (Babies run the show ya know!) but it was worth every final shot.  Even Evelyns sweet little pout face was absolute perfection! It also helps that Mom and Dad are completely wrapped around her little finger and smitten as can be.  :) Thanks Emi and Brandon for letting me spend time with your precious girl! You are a beautiful family!





Seriously.

I have so much to post about.

But my computer hates me and rarely works long enough for me to get it ready to post! (And yes I just started a sentence with “but”)

So much has been going on! Mostly in my life :) I had my wisdom teeth taken out thanks to 2 weeks of pain from an impacted one. My “baby” started kindergarten! Which is definitely exciting!  That’s just 2 things I know, and there is so much more.

To keep you satisfied from missing me :) Here are some pictures from the official first day for our Kindergartner! Our little Cherry is just growing up so fast!

And of course, the other 2 have to be in on the excitement!
