My very first photo shoot, nearly two years ago, was a newborn shoot for my sister. It didn’t go real well. The color was horrible, the lighting was horrible, the posing was awful.  The baby was a dream, but unfortunately I had no idea what to do with that dreamy little guy. Fast forward a couple years and I got a chance to redeem myself with his little brother, my newest nephew. The lighting was great, the photographer was ( i like to think) a little better, and the baby…. as cute as a button, but not quite as accommodating as his big brother had been.  Let’s just say, his eyes didn’t want to close, and I had a lot of laundry to do after this shoot!


Sometimes a session goes just right.  Great light, great space, great baby.  We had a little bit of a rough start, but after she was fed, she decided to be a perfect little newborn for her session. This was the most fun I’ve had in a looong time!


When I moved away to Oklahoma, there were a lot of things I knew I would miss.  Family, friends, ward…. but this girl and her family were at the top of the list.  She was my next door neighbor for 3 1/2 years.  We worked together at two different jobs.. I worked for her at one, she worked for me at another.  We had a back door policy.  I don’t think we ever walked through each other’s front doors, just cut across the backyard and let ourselves into the kitchen. She is one of these friends that only comes along once in a very great while. The year that I was gone, it was painful to be away.  Her life changed dramatically, and I missed almost the whole ten months that she had her sweet little angel with her.  The day I moved back to Utah I was privileged to take family photos of her whole family before her little guy had to head back to Heaven. What an honor and a blessing. Love this girl and all 5 of her boys!
