I did a portrait session of this adorable family last year and then had the awesome privilege to photograph them again this year. I wanted to post this session today because the baby bump you see in the pictures is now gone. Yes…the little one arrived a few days ago. Congratulations!

What do you get when you have two photographers, 3 lights, one camera, 12 degree weather, a darling family and TEN MINUTES? An impromptu photo session in-between jobs and a few cute pictures to send out to family for Christmas cards. Wow….it is amazing that anything turned out! I have to give Jon and Lori props though, because they are also in the photo biz so they were great at posing on their own while I got the attention of little missy! To see behind the scenes at this shoot watch this clip.

Shearer Family

December 20, 2009

Untitled-1TWOGWENNcuteALLI-129all-126-116-75-74 I love it when families work on details of the shoot with me beforehand. Things like wardrobe, hair accessories, tights, shoes, sweaters, hair, makeup and selecting the location of the shoot make A HUGE difference in the outcome of the photos. Meet the Shearer Family. They were a perfect example of one of those families that prepared well in advance and they have gorgeous pictures to show for it. (Not to mention the kiddos are so freaking cute, plus they picked a pretty cool photographer too.) Next time you book a shoot, whether it be a wedding, family, or senior session please take the time to plan the details in advance. I am good, but lets face it…I am not THAT good! :0)

Family and Finger Photos

April 23, 2009

This series of photos were taken for “Grandma Pam” the world’s coolest crafting, scrap booking and photo taking lady I have ever met. We spent two hours shooting every possible grouping of this family for grandma. She brought her list, it was very thorough and I was impressed. We did the entire group, each individual family, just the kids from each family individually, then together, then just the grand kids, the grand kids with the grandparents….well you get the picture. (No pun intended!) I thought I would just post a few of the groupings because there were just so many! The picture of the fingers is of the five girls from one of the families. They wanted me to take a picture of their fingers and this “thing” they do. I asked why they did it and what it meant. All five of them just kind of giggled and said they didn’t know why, they just did. I thought it was kind of endearing. All of these photos are going to be given to grandma for Mother’s Day. How cool. So think ahead and perhaps book a Mother’s/Father’s Day Session. Trust me, the gift of family photos is priceless.

Babysitting and Food Fights

February 21, 2009

Is anyone sick of the snow yet? Just looking at these pictures really makes me want to go back to September-plus Halloween IS my favorite holiday. These photos were taken last November in Provo of a great family visiting from Washington. They are long time friends of my husband’s family. I was fortunate enough to get to know them really well when we lived in close proximity to them. This family really ROCKS! It is funny to think that my husband actually used to babysit the triplets when they were little. I am not sure how much the girls liked him watching them, because I have heard a story about his “babysitting skills” that helps me understand what happens while I am away and I come home to a trashed house! Anyway the story is that he took the girls on a “picnic” at a spot overlooking the Puget Sound. When they were seated at the picnic table side by side looking out at the water, he cracked an egg on each of their heads. He thought that they would just throw food at each other, but guess what? The girls ganged up on him. I think that he got what he deserved, X 3!!! All three of these girls are now married with children of their own. I wonder what kind of sitters they will choose? And as for their little brother, he may be the one to carry on the great legacy my husband left…..until he has children of his own.

Snow, Sunshine, and Football

February 9, 2009

Here are some photos of a really cute family that were taken awhile ago. Here’s the deal, I took their pictures in the FALL for their Christmas Cards, and didn’t post any of their fabulous pictures. Then, right AFTER Christmas I took some more pictures of them and their extended family in the snow. Hmmmm. I am really behind. So if you are confused why there is sunshine, green grass, and snow all mixed into one post it is because I am a slacker! On a personal note, my daughter had a crush on one of these cute boys, “Mr. B” for a long time. He is the oldest boy out of the bunch and after meeting him, I approve, although my daughter is too young for this kind of thing………! I had a great time with this family, and wow, they are a fun, good looking bunch. The dad even cooperated, (maybe his wife threatened him) but as soon as I packed up my camera, he was off to see the rest of the BYU football game. Now that is dedication.
