Getting around to it... - Utah Family and Children Photography

I took a bit of a hiatus, because I was a bit preoccupied with this little sweetie.
But I definitely want to talk about this family and show some of my favorite images from their shoot.
Jana is a good friend of mines sister. I've seen her at family functions here and there but haven't really had the opportunity to talk to her a lot.
I did this shoot the day before I went into labor. I'm glad we were able to get it done because Jana really wanted family pictures.
You know they've gotta be nice people if I was a day before giving birth and still able to enjoy myself.
Jana and I talked a lot about life while doing the shoot. It's easy to get frustrated with your kids while doing pictures. They aren't smiling, or they're running around. Basically they just don't listen.
But that's what I love so much about being a photographer. I get to capture your family as it is, right in this moment.
I get to capture your daughter with her hair glowing, playing in the leaves.
In this shot we were trying to get a special daddy daughter moment, but the second dad laid down the kids were tackling him. And I couldn't love it more. It was perfect. Mom climbed in and we got the perfect family shot.
Besides, we ended up getting that special moment we were looking for anyway.
Now that I'm starting my own family, I hope that I can be like Jana and really roll with it. At one point she even said, "I don't care if Beau is smiling, as long as he's looking at the camera." I hope that even though everyone might not be smiling in every picture, that we were really able to capture what your family is all about right now. Thanks for letting me get to know you a little better.

I don't even need to talk about how much I love these people because I'm pretty sure they already know. All I want to say is I'm so grateful to have such good friends in my life.
Enjoy the pics!

Lucky - Salt Lake Family and Children Photographer

We're so lucky to have friends like Corey and Janeen. I know I've mentioned them before and how cute their little boy is. But really, we're lucky.
Janeen is the kind of person I can say pretty much anything to, and not feel awkward or judged.
They're strong people. Sometimes life doesn't give you what you're expecting, but you move forward and you make things work.
We're lucky to be a part of their lives.
I'm lucky that I get to capture memories for people. So that when they pull these pictures out they can say, "Wow remember where we were at in our lives at this time? Those were amazing times and we were really blessed."
I hope that I've captured something important for you guys to look back on.
