Being invited to photograph and see wonderful families like the Sneddon’s sealed together is nearly impossible to top. Really, look at each of their faces… they are a family that glows. So beautiful, inside and out! I’ve known the Sneddon family ever since moving to the Ogden area and it was incredible to see the amount of love, excitement and support from neighbors, friends and family as they all gathered to celebrate this special day at the Salt Lake City LDS Temple. The grounds were incredible. The family was beautiful all dressed in white and it was just a few short weeks ago. Lori, I hope we captured your vision. I am SO honored and so very happy for you and your family. :)

Aidan and his family joined me when fall colors were in full array and we had a wonderful evening playing and creating some very fun, very memorable family pictures. Kristena, your ideas were absolutely top notch and added such a sense of playfulness to your session. It was perfect! Perfect for a boy! Nothing is quite as fun as capturing pure personality and Aidan, you are just bursting with it. What better way to have fun throughout a photo session than to bring along frogs, balloons, tickle fights and wagon rides all evening long. I walked away from this session full of chuckles. So fun! Kristena, thank you, thank you for inviting me to photograph you all. So happy to have your images in my portfolio! Hope you love what we captured. :)

Family photographs with Mike & Christa’s little bunch was and has always been such a treat! I met this little family before little brother joined the family and was so happy to get the chance to have them in front of my lens again. My heart and my lens are captivated by their beautiful session and faces. Christa did an incredible job of picking her family’s clothing for this session and when we were planning the session, Christa mentioned that there was this lovely piece of property right behind her mother’s home. The day of the session, weather could have gone either way. We held our breath and when the session time arrived, we went for it and were beautifully rewarded with this touchable soft, dreamy session. Oh, I do love how it all came together. Thank you mother nature for the beautiful romantic gray clouds and to Mike & Christa for inviting me to capture your sweet little family once again.

I can still remember meeting this darling family the first time I photographed them for family pictures… Greyson wasn’t part of their family yet and it’s been so fun to watch this beautiful little family grow. Now here we are with a beautiful, new, little addition to the family – meet Greyson! He is one totally adored, completely handsome, going to be a great baseball player some day because daddy is, newborn. Every time I am privileged to photograph newborns, I get swept away by their completely perfect tiny features and their glowing ‘fresh from heaven’ skin. The day we got together for Greyson’s session, it was a bit overcast but no worries… we just opened up the windows for some soft, beautiful window light and away we went. Want a chance to glimpse this sweet family in their other sessions take a look at their wedding and their family session. :)

Welcome Liam, the cutest little man on the planet, to the Little Lottie blog today. Liam’s mom and dad invited me to capture Liam when he was fresh from heaven and we had a wonderful newborn session then (you can see it here). Can it be that it’s already been a year? Well, this darling, grown up Liam is proof that is has and don’t those big brown eyes of his just steal your heart!? :) They do mine! Well, this little nook of lovely light and green is right next to my home and every so often, I get the chance to use it in a session and I truly love the way little ones photograph here. I’ve been so anxious to share Liam’s images here on the blog so please enjoy! :)

Meet Charles & Jenae, parents to this good looking group of people. :) It’s so fun to meet families in groups like this because each has its own flavor. Charles & Jenae’s family is absolutely charming and full of laughs for sure. Could not have asked for a better group or a better night. The light was delightfully cooperative and the park was brimming with flowers and all things green. So pleased with all the fun, romantic images we captured and hope this darling family finds many to love! :)

A quick peek into Clayton & Jenna’s family session. Such soft, beautiful light and such a darling, wonderful family is absolutely worth sharing. Meet Clayton and Jenna, mom and dad to these beautiful little ones. Oh what a beautiful evening we had up in the mountains! :) I can never get enough of that valley evening light. Thank you, thank you Clayton & Jenna for inviting me to photograph your beautiful little family. Hope you find many images to love. :)

A few sneak peek images into Brandon’s newborn session yesterday. I just can’t help but share a few images as a preview to what’s coming when I post this beautiful, newborn session. Jenn was so prepared for her session. We booked her session during her pregnancy and stayed in touch as her due date neared.  As you can see, little Brandon came ‘oh so healthy’ at a wonderful 9 pounds and is just one handsome little fellow. Jenn’s home is brimming with beautiful, natural light and I could see from the moment we began, her newborn images were going to be something extra special. Was I ever right!!! Enjoy! :)

So pleased to share a few from Zac & Ivy’s family photo session from earlier in the fall.  We met at a local park, bright and early… early enough that the sun hadn’t yet poked it’s head over the mountain.  I assured Ivy that the early hour would be worth it if her little ones were pleasant little morning people.  She assured me that they were and that we’d have much better luck early morning than the evening.  So, we went for it!  It was CHILLY! So chilly that the grass was covered by a heavy coat of glistening frost and it crunched under our feet. However, the little ones were troopers and Zac & Ivy’s session turned out to be a favorite fall session.  Loved the look of the frosty covered green.  A perfect match to their navy and green ensemble. :)  Ivy, so glad we went for it.  Hopefully all those chilly memories have faded into wonderful, warm enjoyment of these beautiful family photos. 😉
