Summer Magic | Utah Family Photographer

Is there anything sweeter then a summer evening with new friends in a beautiful mountain valley? Sometimes the choice to get out and live a beautiful life is as simple as putting down your phone, packing up all the towels, & sunscreen, & diapers, & chairs, & toys, & snacks. Okay! It's maybe never simple with three kids, but it is 100% worth it. 

Also worth it is documenting my own family in our own summer magic. It's something that's easy to forget, since I'm also balancing towel & snack duty, but something I never regret. I'm so grateful for friends like Sharstin, her sweet family and the beauty of simple connections. 

There is nothing sweeter then photographing children in the magic wonder of childhood. If you are interested in a similar lifestyle photo session, please contact me here. Let's create your own kind of wonder.

Utah Editorial Photographer | Ballet Shoot

Dance is the hidden language of the soul of the body.
— Martha Graham

It's is always a gift to collaborate with talented artists, and capturing the elemental beauty of florals and dance, motion and organic beauty was a dream long in the making. 

A forever thank your ballet dancer, Sophie Baddley. For her grace, hard work and strength. It is a joy to document what someone loves and has worked their whole life at. 

Another forever thank you to Allison Baddley, La Fête Floral, for being the best creative partner, mother to Sophie, and visionary floral artist. It was a dream working with you to create these dreamy editorial photos.

Zion National Park Wedding | Katelin & Tony

I'll never forget photographing Katelin walking down the aisle. Tony waiting for her under the Cottonwood Tree, the Virgin River a backdrop to the hushed murmurs, The Red Rock rising from the desert floor behind them, and the sun parting through the clouds at the last minute. Life is made up of moments, and some of those moments stay with you long after the days pass. I'll always remember beautiful Katelin and Tony's smile, as he saw her turn towards them. 

Thank you Katelin and Tony for having me be a part of your beautiful Zion National Park wedding!
