The Reel Family

The Reels got in touch with me to take some family pictures and some individual shots of their little guy, Dixon. I was excited to hear from them. The last time I was in front of them with a camera was on their wedding day. I love getting to shoot the follow up to a wedding with a new little person. Dixon was so cute the whole time-all smiles. Dixon's daddy is headed to Afghanistan in a couple of weeks, so he brought along his Marine's gear for props and it was so fun to take pictures of this little guy in camouflage. I wish them all the best.

Creighton 1 year

Creighton turned one and we shot his photos on his real birthday! It has been so fun documenting all of the stages of Creighton's first year. His mom wanted to do some formal shots and then some infamous cake eating ones too. Once we got him nakee and the cake set up we sat him in front of the cake and something happened that I have never witnessed in this situation. Creighton actually laid down on his belly and went to town. Both Creighton's parents and I nearly laughed ourselves silly while witnessing him wolf down almost half of that cake. Holy cow it was funny! I took so many shots, but each moment was so funny I couldn't help myself. They all turned out so fun!

Tom & Tasha

Tom and Tasha got married in the Salt Lake City Temple in February! Lucky for them this February has been a fairly warm one. Although the weather was cooperative for them when they came out of the temple, it wasn't near as cooperative for the ride home! We only had a short time to take this happy couple's photos, so we really busted through them, and I was so happy with how they all ended up. So many fun shots.

First of all, doesn't this little guy have the best name? I have loved it since the first time I heard it!Magum's mom asked me if I wouldn't mind taking Magnum's 2 year pictures, and I was so happy that she did. It was pretty cold out the morning we went out, but not terrible. Magnum held up like a champ. He is one tough cookie to crack when it comes to the smiling department. I tried all of my regular tricks, and nothing was working, but my bag of jelly beans in the pocket proved to be the key. Although several of his shots include a fun punch of color in his mouth, we ended up with some great shots.
