This family has wanted their pictures taken in the snow for years, but the timing never seemed to work out for them. Well, we finally got them, but I think we picked the coldest day of the year to take family photos ... lol! Thankfully, everyone smiled like is was warming up and they were so excited to be out in the snow. Behind the scenes we took pictures, put on coats to warm up, jumped up and down, laughed to keep our faces from freezing, and then took more pictures, repeat. We even took kids individuals between everyone else warming up. Wow, what troopers! They turned out great!!

I was delighted when these guys called and asked if I had time for a quick photoshoot...and in the SNOW! I love the snow! Everyone was so great to work with, even the dog cooperated for the most part :) These guys smiled on the spot - it was great, and went so smoothly (especially with the cold weather creeping into their clothes). Oh, and watch out for this heart breaker!! (below).

This year, I have grown to love being around this family! Everyone of them is talent and so welcoming! Being around them makes my day happier and I can be sure I'll have laughed along the way. It took a couple months to get our schedules straight (lol), but we finally got these school pictures done (and just in time, because it snowed 2 days later .. only in Utah). You guys are amazing and I know your futures are bright - just like you! Thanks for everything!

One of my favorite parts of the Christmas season is the MAGIC and WONDER!! Baby's first Christmas is full of these things. Not only are they learning to grab, sit, talk, etc. but all these shining balls and magical lights are so new and exciting! I wanted to capture the magic during this fun photoshoot, so I did a couple different lighting techniques. Here I used "bokeh" lighting to create a festive mood, full of wonder and excitement.
I used flash to give a fun, soft look as this little angel was checking out the sparkles!! and trying to figure out how to get one in her mouth .. lol!
Love this ... I used the bokeh to light her from the back and the Christmas lights to light her face (all other lights were out). This is really fun 'mood' shot that really captures the wonder of the season!!!
Wow, how precious is this!! A little love from baby and mom!

Merry Christmas!!It has been a wonderful year and I have learned so much. I have been reflecting over the years activities ... and I am filled with gratitude for all the wonderful people I get to associate with! I am so grateful for the opportunities I have had to capture your memories and help you remember each stage in your children's or families life. I have pushed my learning and discovered that I enjoy theater photography, a lot (who knew). What a fun filled year it has been. Thank you all for your friendship and support. Have a wonderful holiday season!!

I love this family and had such a great time taking their family photos. Mom is one of the nicest people I've ever met and is always thinking of others. The kids are so fun to be with and have a lot of fun together. I love this picture (above) that shows how much they enjoy and love each other. Thanks for the fun time!
Love this picture! It shows their personalities just perfect!
