Miss Alexus {Utah Children Photographer}

I have had such a great honor to be able to photograph so many beautiful children in the last few months and it has truly solidified my desire to make ALL children feel beautiful.

Alexus came to me for a mini session and she was styled in such an pretty, whimsical and girly Bentley and Lace  dress.

So I had this carousal horse in my studio for years and had never really done anything with it; and when this dress was sent to me I was like…HECK YES!!   So I hauled this cute horse out into a field near my home in Magna, Utah and placed this beautiful gal in it…and ta da…beautiful!

I then knew when I edited the session it needed just as much whimsy as the dress and the horse provided.  I used some of my Photoshop actions from my Wish Kaleidoscope set to provide it with all the gorgeousness it deserved.

 

 

The Hill Family {Utah Lifestyle Photographer}

I was over the moon excited when the Hill Family invited me into their new, forever dream home to photograph their Saturday morning.  They had been building their dream home just outside of Salt Lake City for about a year.   Every detail of their home was hand picked and thoughtfully provoked.  I was impressed with all the little details.   Utah is the Beehive state and they paid homage to it with honeycomb patterns in the title work.  As someone who loves her home state of Utah, it made this gal’s heart happy.

When I was speaking with Heather about photographing them in their new place one of the things she mentioned is how they often bake cookies on Saturday mornings, play a rousing board game together and how much the kids adore their rooms and play area.   I was like….”sweet; I’ll just capture you doing your thing.”

 

I enjoyed my morning with The Hill Family as I had the opportunity to photograph some memories for them.

Ashley and Sam Wedding {Provo City Center Temple and Springville Art Museum}

Oh where do I begin with this one?  Ashley has been my muse ever since I started photography.  Every time I needed or wanted to practice I would call this girl up and ask her to pose for me.  She would without fail.  For years I dreamed of the day when I would get to photograph her wedding.  And well it came.  It happened.

Ashley met her beau at BYU in Provo, Utah.  When Ashley told me about him I knew he was something special…because I’m going to be honest…you have to be special to match Ash.  Ashley is amazing in so many ways and I can honestly say she found her match. Sam is totally her equal and it is such a joy to see.

I was able to attend the ceremony in the Provo City, Center Temple.  It was beautiful.  However photography is not allowed inside the temple so I could only photograph it in my mind.  And It will forever be etched in my heart.

On the day they got married it was cold and stormy, however the storm let up just in time for pictures outside the temple.

Ashley chose to break the mold by wearing pants!  IT WAS AMAZING!  Ashley made her wedding ‘attire’ herself and I died.  I loved it so much.  When she told me she was going to wear pants I was like “WHAT?!!!! YESSS!” and I totally love what she created!  It’s beautiful and classy in a modern way.

Ash also broke the mold by having her bridesmaids all wear white.  Typically white is reserved for the bride, but if the bride is wearing pants…the bridesmaids can wear white.

The reception was held at the Springville Art Museum in Springville Utah.  It was totally Sam and Ashley.  Their spread was beautiful.  Filled with meats, cheeses, nuts, fruits and chocolates it was divine.  It was the perfect refreshments to view the art, mingle with friends and just hang out.

During the reception, Ashley’s sister Brooke opened up and announced her mission call.  She has decided to serve a mission for her church and Ashley wanted her to open it at her wedding.  Brooke will serve a mission for 18 months in North Carolina.

The evening was finished with dancing and then Sam carried Ashley to the car as they jetted off to their honeymoon in San Juan.

 

Ashley and Sam…congratulations.  Ash, I know you will be an amazing wife and one day mom and I know Sam is a lucky fella to have you.  Sam…you’re a lucky fella to have our Ashley and I know she is lucky to have you too.   Take care of each other.

 

All my love and Best Wishes

 

XOXO
