You know, kids grow. They grow and you can’t stop it. This is not a new concept. I know. But it’s dawning on me more now that my kids are getting older. My youngest is almost 7 and I honestly can’t believe it. How did this happen? Life goes on even when we want it to stop.
These girlies are growing up too. So fast. And I bet if you ask their Mom and Dad, they’d say they can’t believe their oldest is 3 1/2. It goes by so fast.
Katie’s getting baptized! 8 is certainly great!
Katie is my cousin’s daughter. She had a fever on the day we were going to do take her baptism pictures. So, we decided that we would take them during our family Christmas party. I brought a backdrop and set it up in front of my Mom’s sliding glass door in the back of the house. It worked great! I don’t shoot indoor-natural light very often but sometimes you just work with whatever you’re given. I think they turned out super cute.
Snow! The snow had fallen the day before, dumping 8 inches of the beautiful white stuff on our location spot. Hallelujah! It was beautiful! This shoot made me want to go into the canyon and take some more styled snowy pictures. Anybody up for it?
In the meantime, here’s the pictures from the Eichert/Watts extended family shoot (my Aunt and her kids, and grandkids. To be exact.) I had done Jocelyn’s senior pictures a few months before. You can see her session here. Love these guys!
We headed to the park above the American Fork Amphitheater for this session. Gorgeous giant pine trees behind a gorgeous family is a no-fail recipe for some gorgeous pictures.
My sweet family knows that every year we get our family pictures taken. By me. Well, this might be the last year I stick the camera on the tripod, set the timer and run. It might have been the epic new shoes I was wearing that made me not enjoy it so much this year, I don’t know. But I’m asking one of my 105 photographer friends to take them next year instead! HAHA!
I love these guys. <3
It was really cold this day. We even saw a snowflake or two. The boys were so cooperative and sweet we got this family session done in record time!
7 days new! This gorgeous baby girl was perfect and slept through her entire session. And check out her eyelashes!!! They are to DIE FOR! So long and beautiful…LOVE!
I was asked by a division of Utah Valley University to take headshots of some of their employees. We had a great time over the course of 2 days. I was pleasantly surprised to hear many say that it wasn’t as bad as they thought it would be and that it was actually “fun!” Getting your headshots taken can be nerve wracking sometimes. But I try to break the ice by being an idiot. Then laughter ensues and everyone is relaxed enough to get a nice looking headshot.
School Pictures! We found a central location with big TALL grasses for us to go to not too far from both of our homes! I love it when that happens.
Remember that on-location heaven I was talking about in Hailey’s senior pictures post? Well, this is part of that. We had to hike a teeny bit (I love hiking!) but the colors were so beautiful and so worth that teeny hike. And this is OCTOBER!
