Newborn Baby Girl Photos | Logan Utah Newborn Photography

I've had the pleasure of working with this little ladies Mom for a while now! Jordin is all kinds of fabulous. She's talented, driven, has a killer eye for style, and is now going to be the sweetest, coolest momma to Lyla. 

Lyla's Grandma made a custom muslin swaddle blanket out of two Saranoni swaddles! Quilted and everything. Her nursery was perfect; just like her.

Herrmann Family Pictures | Salt Lake City Temple Square photographer

How many of you are still friends with your first grade BFF? because I somehow got lucky enough to still be! We would play office, fashion designers, run through puddles, swim until we were raisins, and as we got older would giggle about church trips and dances, and catch up on the lastest movies. I LOVE Dianna. 

Now we're all grown up with our own little families and it feels so surreal some days. but in the best way. Seeing her and her sweet husband love on their new baby is so cool. 

I love that Dianna chose this moody edit-it fit their color scheme so well!

Birthday Pictures at Pristine Studio | Cache Valley Photographer

as it turns out, birthday studio pictures are a really great thing. Especially when you're Kinley and you're turning probably the best age ever; 5. Getting to be a high five for a whole year is the greatest.

we got to take Kinley's magical pictures in a brand new place in the valley, The Studio! we love love loved it. There was even a Christmas tree! Kinley was super patient and such a sweetheart. Being able to hang out with my friends and their kids is such a treat.

I love when my world gets a bit smaller! Since moving back to Cache Valley it keeps getting better. Amber worked with my husband years ago, and now we've found ourselves living in the same town. She is one of those perpetually happy people who always make you feel better when you leave them. And she has the sweetest little family she and her husband are raising. Their twins are darling and their oldest ROCKS his big brother role. Thanks for letting me hang out with you guys for the evening!

can you even handle these two?

These are much darker and less saturated than my usual style, but so often I feel like each place I shoot has it's own mood and feel. I'll figure out this style consistency thing eventually-but for now I'm enjoying experimenting.

Newborn Family Lifestyle session | Logan Utah Photography

After we did a fun run of white backdrop baby pictures for this dude, we wanted to be sure Mom and Dad got some time to love on him too.

Paige and Quinn just seem like naturals with this guy; they were so ready to have him join their family and can't get enough of him. (Me either. Aunt privileges!) We just hopped outside for a quick minute for a change of scenery.

Pictures don't have to have elaborate outfits and locations to tell a story; they can, of course! but I love that the focus is right here on the love that is literally bursting out of these photos.

HE'S HERE HE'S HERE! Okay, he's actually almost a month old...but my nephew came two weeks early and I couldn't be happier. (I bet, somehow, his parents are happier still! haha.) As long as he's got a full tummy, this little man is happy as can be. Perfectly content to just quietly chill and nap. Who gets an angel baby on their first?! What a blessing. We were lucky enough to be at the hospital the night he was born, and from the first breath he's been a calm and happy human. We're so happy he's earth side.

His blue hat and cotton swaddle are from Saranoni.

Newborns are my favorite. Expecting? shoot me an e-mail! Know a family member or friend who is? Newborn pictures would make an incredibly thoughtful gift.

Preston Idaho Family + Newborn Session

This cute family had a really wonderful day on Saturday. Two special events-an eight year old getting baptized and blessing a new baby! Perfect reason to grab someone with a camera. ;) Family dynamics are always so fun to me; I love seeing how everyone interacts with each other. This is such a happy, silly family!

Paige Maternity Session | Logan Utah Maternity Photographer | Tony Grove

Last night I traveled up a favorite canyon to a favorite spot in our wonderful Valley. Tony Grove has the most perfect setting for natural, moody photos! Quinn and Paige love to go out camping and be in nature so this was a perfect place for them to feel at ease and enjoy the evening.

Funny side note about Tony Grove; this was where my husband first told me he loved me. and I said thank you. (awkward pause) haha! it caught me off guard and I didn't know what to say! I did tell him I loved him a few days later. ;)

favorite.

Welcome to the World Baby Shower Logan Utah

I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS BABY TO COME! He is my newest nephew and the child of my adorable Sister in Law Paige and her husband Quinn. They're doing a map themed nursery and so we did a welcome to the world theme for her shower! It was so fun and I loved that simple willow clippings really elevated the feel. the green and blue marbled cake pops make the perfect little worlds for everyone to snack on!

trays loaded and ready to go.

Do you have friends that you've just held onto with everything you can? this little dude is #3 to some of those people. His Mom is basically sister level in my life, and I'm so glad I got to photograph these sweet kiddos. They have such calm, kind demeanors and seeing how they interact was the best. Such a special way to spend time with them. Thank you for trusting me with these images, Chels.

the blurry shots are usually my most favorite.

Eight is Great! LDS Baptism Photography

how dapper is this dude? I love that 8 is great sessions are becoming a thing. and he ROCKED it. and can I tell you? eight year olds are fun to hang out with. they're silly but you can really talk to them! if you didn't know, we have two girls that are 4 and 2, so BOY + EIGHT is not my normal realm. 

I love this whole family and had such a great night hanging out with them. How do I keep getting so lucky? Thank you all for trusting me with your memories. You're wonderful.

if you want to know more about LDS baptisms, and why we wait until 8, here's an awesome little article on mormon.org.

Rocking Beatle's Baby Shower

Growing up with your friends is kind of the coolest. I have so many memories of Dianna and I playing office, running in streams, dreaming about plays, girls camp stories....the summers were short and FILLED when we'd see each other. So getting to see the friend I've known the longest get ready to welcome her first baby was truly a treat.

Dianna's an avid Beatle's fan and her Mom and childhood bonus Mom (we all had a few of those, right!) put together the most colorful, rockin' shower for this little lady. They even did all the desserts themselves. I died when I saw the cookies! This little lady is gonna be way cooler straight out than I ever will be. 

Hey May!

There was a time when I loved spending time writing, recording, remembering. Now I have a chatbooks account and two very active girls! Haha. But I've been trying to get my Nikon out more for our everyday life, so I thought I'd post some of the moments I've gotten for May!

we're in our new house! GOSH. it's amazing how fast it's already started to feel like home.

the light in our bedroom is divine in the afternoon. Combine that with her favorite jams right now and we're happy. She loves Reverie from Scott + Brendo because it's on her favorite dog commercial. I love this girl.

Ashlynn + Boston | Green Canyon Logan Family Pictures part 1

want to meet the sweetest, happiest, and dang funny 4 year old? this is her. Boston is the daughter of my amazing friend Ashlynn, and they were so much fun to hang out with. I love getting to see kids doing things they love-Boston was so happy to touch the water and find rocks for throwing. and can we take a second to appreciate that Ashlynn is just drop dead gorgeous? I didn't look that good on my wedding day, honestly. haha! and she's just as amazing inside as out. about ready to hashtag blessed, because life is real good. stay tuned for part 2 coming later this week because I can't edit down. so much sweetness.

Monson Family | Box Elder Campgrounds

Sometimes one of your bffs wants family pictures and sometimes kids get sick and holidays happen and suddenly it's a winter wonderland. and they rocked it! four boys and the smizes I got from them! forget about it. Tyra would be so proud.

my favorite moments are always those in-between the regular shot shots; the hugs, the looks, the everyday jokes. I love getting to be a part of your world for a little while. Thanks for trusting me with capturing your moments!


I love working with families and finding your genuine moments. want your own? thinkingaboutpretty(at)gmail.com
