Some Product Eye Candy - Salt Lake City Utah Portrait Photographer

Here are some pictures of the 3x3 Accordian Mini Album that I offer.

They come in sets of 3 of the same design. Perfect amount for you to keep one, and give the other two to grandparents!

They're perfect for sticking in your purse and pulling out to show off to all your friends.

They are magnetized so work perfectly for hanging on the fridge.

I have numerous templates available. Here's an example of another template that I have.

Check back for more example templates!

W2W Wednesday

One of the most common questions I get asked as a photographer is "What should we wear?". 99 times out of 100 I'll tell you to wear bright fun colors. But I get that sometimes bright isn't your thing. So I put together this guide with those in mind that might not want to hop out in a lime green shirt or a hot pink skirt.

All items are from Gap excluding Mom's Cardigan and Earrings. You can find the cardigan through Anthropologie and the Earrings through Old Navy.

You've made it halfway through the week! Friday is right around the corner!

Changes - Utah Senior Teen Photographer

I've been so excited to post these images. These are the second set of images from my mentorship with Vanessa Millecam. I just couldn't believe how beautiful these two girls were. They totally knew how to work the camera which made my job SO EASY.

As you can see, there have been some changes here on my website. I'm still tweaking a few things but I'm really loving the new look.

Before, my branding was geared mainly toward children, and while I still really love photographing children, I wanted to market to a larger client base. When I was just starting out I really only took pictures of people's children. Now I've had the opportunity to shoot seniors, bridals, engagements, all these different sessions and I realize how much I love it and want to do more of it.

I wanted a look that was clean and classic and I think I got it! I hope you all like it!

Now, back to these girls, aren't they just beautiful? I love this next picture. Doesn't Miss Chloe just put off mysterious? I love the intensity of it.

And Lisa could pull off any pose we threw at her.

Teenagers are just too beautiful these days. Seriously, I don't remember girls looking like this when I was in high school. And it wasn't even that long ago!

As always, I love to hear from you!

W2W Summer Girls

I put together these outfits as an idea for a recent session I had. Turns out they didn't even need the help! But I thought it was so stinkin cute I just had to share it here!
Don't mind the numbers, just posting ages for my client and don't have time to remove them now.

All of these outfits can be found at Gymboree! And on sale too, YIPEE!

Calm Between the Storm - Utah Children Photographer

I had my first session since my mentorship and WOW what a difference in the way I felt and worked with these little sweeties.

I wasn't sure how I was going to be able to handle 4 girls under the age of 10, but they were so well- mannered and polite. We were able to slip in during the middle of a storm and it worked out perfectly.

Check out the eyes on these girls! B-E-A-utiful!

Enjoy your sneak peak, Sherri!

Constantly growing....

I'm not going to be posting a What 2 Wear segment this week because I think this session speaks for it entirely. This is the PERFECT outfit and was so much fun to shoot. It's all about layers, accesories and obviously, some converse never hurt anyone.

This past weekend I was able to mentor with the very talented Vanessa Millecam. I learned so much from our day together. I was very excited to see I was on the right track with a lot of things.

I think the area I gained the most from was just learning to believe in myself. Vanessa helped me to see that I'm not just another mommy with a camera, that I have talent, and that I'm worth it! I'm constantly growing and learning. I think that was the most important thing for me.

The models were amazing and an absolute breeze to shoot. Could little Lexi be any cuter? She needs to be locked up pronto.

There are going to be lots of new and fun changes to come, from model casting calls, to pricing, to website changes. Keep checking back, and as always I love to hear from you. It makes my day.

W2W Wednesday - Boy Edition

I know sometimes it can be challenging to find cute clothes for your little guy. Every store you walk into is lined aisle by aisle with cute clothes for girls and one tiny section for boys. But you can pretty much always find something cute for your little boy at Gap. Here's a couple ideas that COORDINATE but aren't too MATCHY MATCHY.
