Anthony (and his cute sister…)

I’ve been changing gears lately and shooting some weddings (which I am not yet posting or officially advertising…) but I got to do a fun portrait session last week for this little 10 month old cutie. His family only wanted a few proofs (which makes me hyperventilate as I don’t know how to do that) and I couldn’t help firing off way too many of him.

His sister hopped in for a couple, and it is obvious she really adores her baby brother. I did her portrait when she was about the same age, and I love that she still has that wonderful curly hair.

Here’s your sneak preview – I’ll have your gallery up by the beginning of next week!

Sweet Marin, 2 months

I had the pleasure of spending Monday morning photographing little Marin and her mom.  She was the most agreeable baby I have ever worked with – she never cried (not once!)  in 2 hours of photographing ~ not even through diaper changes, outfit changes, anything.  Although she did grunt, one time, when her mom was putting a sweater on her.  That was it.  She was competely happy with however she was positioned, and even fell asleep for a short while.  What a sweetie.  Here’s your little sneak preview.

Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep photographer Julie Williams

My friend and fellow photographer Julie Williams was featured this week on Fox13 News in Utah for her work with a very special organization called Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep.  NILMDTS is comprised of thousands of photographers around the country who volunteer their time and talent to help families going through the most difficult challenge of all – the loss of a child.

Julie is truly a special person.  I have so much admiration for her.  She is fun, bubbly, and always finds time to give of herself, even when dealing with her own personal challenges.  She has an fantastic strength of faith, a humble and generous spirit, and is a blessing to many of us.  I am honored to know her.You can see the video by clicking here.  There are 2 parts. 

Jewels, you always inspire me.  XOXO

Meet Regan and Kiernan.  They are 5 months old, incredibly sweet and keep everyone in the house busy.  If one was happy, the other wasn’t. Then they would switch places.  Then one would sleep while her sister kicks her in the face.  But they really draw you in with their gentle smiles.  Plus, they have the most incredible blue eyes I have ever seen.  Usually I prefer black and white infant pictures but this time it is a toss-up with those blue eyes. Yummy.img-2-blog.jpgimg-1-blog.jpgimg-4-blog.jpgimg-3-blog.jpg

A Sneak Peek from Yesterday’s Session

I’ve had the privilege of photographing this little guy 3 times now, and I swear he gets cuter and cuter each time.  We fit him in last night for a last minute “emergency session” – his dad was taking him to the barber the next day.

Luckily I was able to get a lot of shots without having to run all over the place!  But still, he’s 20 months old and gets around.  His dad had the wonderful idea of giving him the garden hose, while yelling to me “I hope your camera’s insured!”  It is, but I really need it for a session in a few days.

So here’s your sneak peek.  I’m still dreamy from the cute little “Bye, Ichele” voice and the lovingly shared smooshed oyster crackers.img-24-low-res.jpg
