Nestled up in the Salt Lake mountains with the cutest little tiny people, we had a magical evening full of big huge smiles, wild flowers, Eskimo kisses, snuggles, and dancing.

Being one of the photographers in Utah County has been such a blessing to my life! Three years ago I was driving through the Alpine mountains to find the perfect spot for the first family session I photographed…

I absolutely LOVE being a Utah family photographer!! Because of Covid, I have been booking less weddings and more families. While I’m sad that…

Family photography in Salt Lake City can be kinda tricky at this time of year, especially with kids. It’s freezing outside and everything outside is just dead, making it the perfect time of year to use a studio! My favorite kind of studio to use…

It can be really tricky to try and predict the seasons and to get schedules to line up with everything. Especially for fall! This year was a little bit crazy. We had the most beautiful colors and brilliant reds, then overnight, they were gone and the temperatures plummeted to a record breaking low! But that doesn’t mean we can’t still create magic!!

I absolutely adore this little family, and probably because I adored the beautiful mom first! She’s one of my best friends from clear back in jr. high! We were complete nerds and were 100% ok with it!! We loved science, piano, singing, and all the same people. It was the best group of friends…

When we’re in high school, sometimes we make lifetime friends, sometimes we just know their friendly faces, and sometimes friends go separate ways through life’s different adventures — which is what happened with me and Geo. But through the furthering of social media technology, we have the ability to reconnect with the wonderful people from our pasts!

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.”




I strive to capture photographs that feel authentically you–and they should be more than an everyday snapshot. Being photographed can be a dance between who you are and the dressed-up version of who you want to be. As a mama of four littles and a bride before that, I’ve been in your shoes before. Here’s my question to you:
