Vienna's Birth Story | Utah Birth Photographer

One of my close friends had a baby! I was SO excited for her! She has 3 boys and was having a girl!!! Yea! I tried talking her into letting me come to the hospital to document the birth (some people are really private about that kind of thing, but it really is an amazing moment to freeze in time and many women even forget what goes on). She finally said yes, but her husband wasn't so sure. So, I made a deal and told them I would come right after she had the baby. They were cool with that...well, things didn't quite go as planned. Her labor and delivery was MUCH longer than with her other 3 boys. The umbilical cord was wrapped around her tummy so she wouldn't drop. So, with all that was going on, she forgot to call/text me when she was getting close. Oh well. I came the next morning (she had her in the middle of the night) and took some great pictures of precious Vienna. I was even there when the boys and Grandma and Grandpa came so that was fun to get some pictures of those sweet moments. I love birth stories! They are such tender moments.

  Then the kids came!! They were all so excited to see and hold their new sister.
 Daddy finally got a turn to hold the baby.
 Grandma & Grandpa got a few minutes with Vienna too.
 First family picture!! Doesn't Heather look great?! Jewelry and all!

Watson Family | Utah Family Photographer

I have been doing this family's pictures for almost as long as I've had my business (minus a few years they were living in Texas). I love this family! We had scheduled to do this shoot back when it was raining all the time (yeah, I'm behind blogging!) and of course, on the day we scheduled it was threatening rain. Brittany still wanted to go for it since all her kids were ready and in the car but as soon as we hit Draper there was a DOWNPOUR!! Brittany is a rockstar and still wanted to try it! We were headed to downtown Salt Lake. I bought an umbrella on the way cuz I just didn't think it wasn't going to not rain! Well, Brittany had way more faith than me because downtown was NOT raining! We all hurried to get out of the car and get ready for pictures cuz we just knew the rain was headed that way. Well, we didn't have to hurry too much because the rain never came! It sprinkled a little bit and there were puddles everywhere (try to keep a 2 year old out of that!) but it worked out perfectly!! I love these images and I love my awesome clients!!
 The kids needed a little breather after the formal family pics.
 Tylee LOVES the camera! She is such a cutie!
 Stockton wasn't too interested.

 Brittany, you are gorgeous!
 We let them puddle jump at the end...cute kids!
 Love this wall...

 Gotta have the bloopers!

My Easton Turned 2!! | Utah Child Photographer

My baby boy turned 2 at the end of the month last month! I can't believe it's been 2 years since he has been in our lives. He is ALL BOY! He runs EVERYWHERE! He jumps on EVERYTHING! He drives me crazy sometimes (like during this shoot I thought he would jump into the water!) but we love him like crazy. Check out this cute kid:
Sorry I posted every single image I edited. He's just too cute!
And, of course, here are the bloopers. This kid is SO expressive! We were having fun!
 In the pictures on the right he saw a train and then he was mad that I went on by and didn't stop to play. :)
