I realize my blog could use some serious updating, but things have been crazy. So, I will update it, but not today. : ) Instead, I wanted to share some images real quick that I took of my dear friends and their sweet dog, Fairfax. Fairfax was really sick and passed away a few days after this mini session. I was so thankful we were able to document their family and preserve some memories of their amazing dog.

“A good dog never dies, he always stays,
he walks besides you on crisp autumn days
when frost is on the fields and winter’s drawing near,
his head within our hand in his old way.”

bass family!


I absolutely loved photographing the Bass family this week! We did their mini session around their beautiful front yard, and the promise of frozen yogurt kept everyone in good spirits while we snapped some family pics! Sherrie and Mike, thank you so much for the opportunity to photograph your lovely family! It was such a pleasure.

You know those people who just totally radiate goodness and light and are kind to everyone they meet? That pretty much sums up Megan! Sure, she is gorgeous—but she is also one of the most beautiful young women on the inside, that I have ever met. I was honored to be able to do a mini session with her in honor of her senior year! I am so excited to see what the future holds for Miss Megan—I know our Heavenly Father has great things in store for her!

What an amazing honor it was to photograph Megan and Harrison on their wedding day! We were blessed to have had such beautiful weather for their couple portraits and Temple portraits! It was evident from the first moment I met them that they were a perfect match, and I loved being able to capture their fun and loving relationship. It was so great to able to witness them coming out of the Temple doors as husband and wife– there is always such a special spirit on the Temple grounds and their day was no different.

Megan and Harrison, you guys were both so kind and fun to work with— I wish you every joy as you begin your lives together! Thank you so much for the privilege to document the start to your marriage.

vergaray mini session!

Earlier this week I had to reschedule a session I had previously planned to do, but I hated to waste what was forecasted to be a beautiful evening! So I put a facebook message up in case anyone wanted to do a mini session, and I was thrilled to hear from this beautiful family! It had been a few years I think since I had last seen the Vergarays, and their cute boys had grown so much! They were AMAZING for our session…just as sweet as could be! Thanks so much you guys! I hope you love the pics!

peck family!


Recently one of my favorite families in the whole wide world (above) had some of their extended family fly in from all over the country, and I was fortunate to be able to do some family pictures for them! I am grateful to call the Tuttles’ friends, and was thankful to get to meet so many wonderful members of her family. Thanks guys!

ava renee mini session preview!



I absolutely LOVED starting off my day photographing the exquisite Ava Renee! She was seriously a little doll baby…so many smiles, and just such a sweet, happy baby! While big brothers were away at soccer practice, Ava Renee, her mommy and I took some portraits around her beautiful home, and well…I love each and every shot!  Thank you so much, Renee! She is perfect.

I had a ball photographing Kinsey this week for her senior pics. We have had to reschedule two times due to rain, and 15 mins before her session it poured…for like 5 minutes! Then the sun came out in all it’s glory, and we had an amazing session! Kinsey is heading out to BYU this fall, and I am so excited for her and all of the things life has in store for her. Also, I want her hair. : )

Thanks so much!!! Best of luck in college!
