The C Family

Happy summertime, folks! I hope life is treating you well!

We moved back to Utah! It was a bittersweet (and sudden) change. We miss all our friends from the Pacific NW, but we were loving being back with those we left when me moved last time! I’m getting back on the blogging wagon (I know, I know. I said this a year ago…), and I have lots of catching up to do! Here’s the C family!









Yeah… um. These fabulous people have actually added a little one since these were taken. (When I said I was behind, I meant it!) But more on that later. 😉 She’s adorable!

Jaren & Elisabeth :: ENGAGED

Jaren and Elisabeth are fabulous. They both worked with my husband before we came out to Florida, so when they asked me to squeeze in an engagement session when I flew out to Utah, I was absolutely thrilled.

We had plenty of giggle moments. They are my favorites! 🙂

Is she stunning or what!?

Did I mention how gorgeous this girl is!?

Thanks so much, you two! I had a BLAST shooting with you! 🙂

Garrett & Jenny :: ENGAGED

What. A. Blast.


Garrett and I went to high school together and really–he was pretty much the best guy friend a girl could ever ask for. No joke. So I was absolutely thrilled when I found out he was engaged, and BEYOND thrilled when he and Jenny asked me to do their pictures! I had so much fun shooting with them, and because of that I had a killer time trying to narrow down my selection for the blog. I started out with 45 images (give or take a couple), so really–y’all are lucky I was able to get it down to 25! Plus–one of these isn’t even of them. It’s of me. 🙂

A tire swing? Seriously!? Obviously, I couldn’t resist… 🙂

Why am I posting a picture of me? Well, I wanted y’all to see the lengths I go to to get pictures. Yeah. I know. I look like I’m about to get struck by lightning. I don’t know if I’d go THAT far… But Garrett and Jenny sure had a good laugh when they saw me at the bottom of the slide, so they insisted on getting a picture. And no. I didn’t even slide down the slide. Just stood on it. Oh yeah. And almost fell off of it, too. Twice. 🙂

Old tubs? Sign me up.

Garrett and Jenny got engaged at Discovery Park, so–to satisfy my cheesy side–we did a little reenactment. In the exact location he proposed. You know it!

Okay, let’s be honest. This was what the shoot was like half the time. Goofballs…. 🙂

I spy, with my little eye… Someone that is GORGEOUS!!!

And there they go… off into the sunset…

…on their tiny. little. scooter. thing. 🙂

The *B* Family

Love this family. Love, love, love. The craziest was to see their oldest. Last time I saw him he was barely sitting up! BWUUUT!? Don’t you love all the bright colors?

Oh, how I love my Real-Life shots. Nose pickin’, screamin’, and… well… plottin’? What do you think? 🙂

This little guy is preparing to be a lineman. 🙂

Thanks so much! It was a blast catching up with you guys! 🙂

Nick and Rachel :: Hoping to Adopt!!

I can’t even begin to express how much my husband and I adore this couple! Ironically, they both grew up in my husband’s stake, but didn’t really meet each other until they were in the same student ward at BYU! Kirby and Nick were roomies, and Nick and Rachel got married just before Kirby and I met. We were so sad when they moved to Colorado for Nick to get his doctorate. So you can imagine how excited I was when they came to visit over Thanksgiving and asked me to take pictures of them for their adoption profile! SO FUN. For anyone who is interested to learn more, visit their BLOG!

GORGEOUS! Anyone in the market for a model? I know someone you can call! 😉

We figured that since the wind was blowing Rachel’s hair all dramatic-like, we needed a hardcore serious one…

I love how this last one turned out! Mountains, cranes, blue sky…

Thanks again, you two! Come back and visit again soon!! 🙂
