Fair Time = Fall Time

There's nothing like going to the fair to make you really feel like Fall is on the way. It's so fun going and people watching, eating the good food and enjoying the beautiful September weather.

Next Top Model - Salt Lake City Senior Photography

I kept having person after person tell me how Morgan was shy, how Morgan doesn't say much, how Morgan was quiet. Maybe all that's true but this girl could STRIKE A POSE.

Nothing makes my job easier than when my clients have their own little bag of tricks. No running through my posing motions. They pull out their own things and totally kill it. It looks natural and nothing looks better than that.

When I commented on her posing abilities she credited them to watching a lot of America's Next Top Model. Whatever works, right?

She was up for anything and so laid back.

I couldn't be happier to have her as one of my senior reps for Alta High School. She may be quiet and shy but she's a genuinly nice person. And obviously beautiful.

Good luck in your last year of high school Morgan. I'm excited to see what the future holds for you!

The Dream Family - Utah Family Child Photographer

There is nothing better than when you have a returning client. It's so fun seeing how children have grown, people have changed. You're already comfortable. You can just relax and enjoy each other's company.

This sweet family was one of my very first paying clients. I had the chance to look back at their pictures from last year and it was exciting to see how much my photography has grown. It was also fun to see how much sweet Kambria had grown. She's such a ham and was an easy bribe with candy.

They also added a sweet little guy to the mix. Isn't he so adorable? His eyes are absolute perfection. He was such a good baby the whole time even when we scraped his legs up on a tree stump. What a trooper!

I was also able to meet these two sweet kids that I didn't get to at our last session. They were natural posers and really knew how to work the camera.

And the parents. The sweet sweet parents.

I still remember how kind Kamaron was at our last session, offering to carry all my props because I was pregnant.

And Carly, could you be any more beautiful? You're the dream client.

At one point during the session I was looking through my viewfinder at Kamaron and Carly and actually said these words, "You guys are cuter than last time I saw you."

What? That didn't come out right.

They were unsure how to respond. Was that an insult or a compliment?

Sometimes I can't quite get out what I'm thinking in my head. So let me clarify.

You guys have always been cute, obviously, but your kindness and spunky personalities have made you grow on me even more so than before. You're beautiful, genuine people, and your children are gorgeous.

Thanks for letting me get that off my chest.

I look forward to many more sessions with you guys!

Lock up your little girls - Utah Baby Child Photographer

This little man is on the loose!

We had such a fun time during this session because not only is this little boy the cutest thing ever, but the parents are our good friends. Boston was born 3 days after my little girl and they're buddies.

It was nice getting out on the town and spending time with people we care about!

And then something so beautiful happened at the end of our session. We're in downtown Salt Lake, concrete surrounding, and this beautiful butterfly came and rested on this random leaf where we were shooting. It was about the size of my palm and so colorful!

I'm done "laboring" for today. Off to Oktoberfest to enjoy the gorgeous weather, eat delicious food and spend time with people I love.

Have a fun and safe Labor Day!
