three girls and a boy

can i just tell you how much i love these kids. they have so much personality!

evelyn kate - so full of life and energy! she is caring and always including others.

this is my favorite photo from the batch. i love the vibrant colors!

the one boy, jackson kelly - the sweetest boy you will ever meet with a smile that will melt your heart. he is always on the move and is already quite the little engineer. 

adalie jane - stubborn, joyful, and a girl who knows what she wants.

miss maren mckinley - she is the happiest baby i have ever met! so easy going and content with life.

the three girls (jackson would have nothing to do with more pictures. typical boy) - i love seeing siblings interact with eachother. melts my heart  <3

can't wait to see these four again!

cute little family

i took some pictures of my brothers cute little family and used the opportunity to experiment with a little different editing process. it's a combination of photoshop and lightroom, and can i just say that i am in love with the results! definitely different from what i usually do, but i think it may very well become my standard.

zoey jane

super kisses!

darcy lynne

cute little family

the next few posts i do will use this same editing process. be excited!

brittany - bridals

i loved getting to photograph brittany! she is so photogenic and she doesn't even know it! i seriously wanted to edit every single one of her images. it was so much fun!

i loved this road. it is so pretty!

logan canyon

brittany's mom made her dress for her! isn't it amazing! i am in awe.
love this one!

there is one more image that i absolutely love but for some reason it refuses to upload. why does technology hate me? 

anyway, thanks for letting me do these for you brittany! you are so beautiful!

king family

these guys were seriously so great to work with!

this kid is so funny!

thank you guys for the great experience! 

i wish that i could show some of the funny family shots we got, but my computer has been having a few issues, and i'm afraid it's winning this particular battle. never fear, i will win the war!

sara + chris

sara and i go way back. we first met my second semester of college where we were neighbors. i'm pretty sure neither one of us had a very good impression of each other so, although we saw one another often, we rarely spoke and had little to do with each other.

the next semester there was some major miscommunications with the rooming situation and by complete accident sara and i ended up being roommates. we were both nervous about how the semester would play out because we were both so different!

it turned out that living with sara was the best thing that could have ever happened to me! we discovered that we had more in common that we thought and i honestly don't think i could have made it through that semester without her.

five years later she is still one of my dear friends and i was honored to take her engagements for her! i had heard a lot about chris and talked to him on the phone once or twice before, but the photo shoot was the first time i actually got to meet him in person. let me tell you, they are perfect for each other! just see for yourself....

he's a goof

this spot on the playground is special to them, so we were sure to get a picture here
