Finn and Olive | Commercial Children's Photographer

I loved being a part of Finn and Olive's soft and beautiful line of baby blankets and soft, gauzy bows. I've loved Danielle and her vision for a long time. As I have gotten deeper into motherhood, I value beautiful pieces that serve multiple functions, simplifying our lives and closets. I'm so grateful to be step behind the camera and photograph the beauty and love that go into businesses, and I feel grateful to work with brands whose vision I respect and align with goals as well. Also, how lovely is Little Cottonwood's clothing line? Another brand I love and respect.

Thank you Finn and Olive for having me out and photographing such a lovely children's lifestyle and commercial shoot. I loved every minute!

Solstice

Like a river
Like a river
Like a river
Like a river
Like a river
Like a river

Shut your mouth and run me like a river
How do you fall in love?
Harder than a bullet could hit you
How do we fall apart?
Faster than a hair pin trigger
Don’t you say, don’t you say it, don’t say
Don’t you say it, one breath and it’ll just break it
So shut your mouth and run me like a river
— Bishop Briggs

There is power in creation
There is strength in women finding beauty together
There is love in a story

I loved creating this Utah editorial shoot with Amber Reverie and Sophie Kynaston at the Great Salt Lake. I'm in awe of their beauty and strength. The sun set early behind a cloud, robbing us of the late golden light that we were chasing. But how can I regret that, when I found inspiration in the darkness instead. 

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.
