Miss Sophia {Utah Children Portrait Photographer}

When Sophia arrived to her session with me I thought “oh you little sweet thing!”  She is so tiny and petite and I was afraid the Bentley and Lace skirt and top I had picked out for her would be ginormous, but alas I was able to rig it with some clamps, and a little magic!

Sophia looked so sweet in the silk floral skirt and her hair…can we talk about her braided crown?  Seriously I am a girl who loves some good braids!

Now back to this outfit….isn’t it just the sweetest?   The skirt has layers and layers of tulle under it that makes it so puffy and princess like.  I’m just always so in awe at the quality of the dresses Elizabeth from Bentley and Lace sends me a few times a month.  And I just feel so lucky that Liz trusts me so much with were precious designs….and sends them all the way to Utah for my clients to take advantage of.    Every little girl wants to feel like a princess and I’m so lucky to be part of these princess moments.


This session was photographed with my Canon 5D Mark IV and 70-200 2.8 IS II, plus edited with Wish Kaleidoscope Photoshop Actions .



Miss Sophie {Utah Child Photographer}

Before I sent back the beautiful carousal dress by Bentley and Lace I had one more session request here in Utah for it.  This time the brown eyed beauty Sophie.  Sophie stole my heart with her kindness.  My goal is always to make my little clients (and my big clients) feel beautiful and special, but she flipped the tables on me.  She told me “your daughters are so lucky you are their mom.  You’re so beautiful and nice”.  WHAT?!  Oh my gosh could she be any sweeter?

Sophie has the most lovely deep brown eyes and beautiful long brown hair and her smolder was enough to knock a man dead.  Seriously such a gorgeous gal!   As beautiful as the weather in Utah has been lately it doesn’t compare to how beautiful this girl is!


The whimsical editing was done with my Photoshop action set Wish Kaleidoscope.   It really has everything one needs.    This session was photographed with my Canon 5D Mark IV and my 70-200mm 2.8 IS II




Miss Sawyer {Utah Child Photographer}

Okay, how freaking adorable is this 2 year old?  I’m going to be honest with you two year olds can be a challenge to photograph but as of late I have discovered exactly how to capture them perfectly.   I always get a little worried scheduling such young children in early spring because the weather can be unpredictable.   However the weather had been beautiful in Salt Lake City lately and so we had a perfect session.

Sawyer seems to be such a happy child, and her laughter had me swooning!   Just check out the pictures of her belly laughing!    And can we just talk for a second about her sweet dress?   Isn’t it so precious?  Another perfect Bentley and Lace!


This session was edited using my Wish Kaleidoscope Photoshop action set.  It helped me perfectly edit this whimsical session.

Miss Reese {Utah Children Photographer}

The dress lives on……I’ll tell you what the Bentley and Lace  carousal dress was so popular and every single girl felt like a princess in it.

It was so fun photographing Reese.  She was so shy and quite with me and I kept saying to her momma “is she always shy?”.  Her mom gave me a shake of the head and said “I think she’s just excited so she’s quite.”

I loved that…EXCITED!   I love when they are so excited they don’t know what to do.  Some girls get giddy, some are chatty and some are quite.  That is the beauty of it all…each girl is unique; even when they are photographed in the same dress.

On the day of Reese’s session the weather in Salt Lake was amazing….the light was beautiful and I was praising my sweet Utah.

Reese had never had professional portraits before and she KILLED IT!

I told her “girl…you should model!”

We had such a great time together.


Once again I had to edit this session with my Wish Kaleidoscope Photoshop action set…because it just provides every thing I need!

Miss Lilly {Utah Children Photographer}

Let me tell you what the Bentley and Lace  carousal dress was a huge hit while I had it here in Utah.  I had so many momma’s calling me, emailing me, texting me….simply dying to have their daughters photographed in it.  So how could grant those wishes?!

Every single girl that put on that dress said “I feel like a princess.”  And then they saw the horse and was like “A HORSE! Can I sit on it?” Of course you can girlfriend.

I have photographed Lilly a few times before and every time I am so in love with her adorable face and her amazing hair.  I am mad about little afros….and she has a killer one!

We had such a good time together.  The weather in Salt Lake was perfect and so was Miss Lilly!


A session this pretty had to be edited with equally pretty techniques.  With the help of my Photoshop action set Wish Kaleidoscope I was able to create the most lovely finished product.
