Little Cody's mom asked me when the best time to take newborn photos response was no later than two weeks! I asked how old he was and she said two weeks yesterday. So I wiggled him into the schedule as quickly as possible, but let's just say he was not at all interested in having his pictures taken. He fought sleep, he went through three different blankets in no time, and was totally not interested in being still. After a long battle, however, he finally caved and zonked. I snapped as quickly as I could, scared to death to wake this little guy up and he was worth the fight. His cute photos turned out so stinking cute.

Ashlee & Shae

I got a call from Ashlee a couple of months ago asking if I would be available to take pictures for her wedding. I told her that I would be crazy to not make myself available for such a cute couple. Both Shae and Ashlee are from Malad and really wanted their photos done there and their only request was that they didn't want typical spots or poses. I told her she was a girl after my own heart. I was happy to oblige and met up with them and we perused Malad looking for some original places to take their photographs. I had so much fun with these guys and let's be honest, look what a hot couple they are :) and it is more than obvious that these two are totally smitten with one another. We ended up with more shots than I care to admit, and I love them all! I think this may have been one of the very hardest photo shoots to narrow down to favorites. They have their work cut out for them!

The Barnes

This cute family has had me take their pictures for the past 4 years, and every single year it ends up freezing, snowing, you name it. So this year instead of fall pictures they decided to wait until spring and hope for the best. Well, they bought some springier outfits, and booked a day in May, but we still froze! They wore jackets from location to location, but did a good job faking their warmth for the camera :) Regardless of weather, these are my favorite pictures of them so far! I love taking pictures of this fun family. It's always a good time when I'm photographing them.

Baby Kayson

This perfect little baby came for his newborn debut at just 10 days old. Kayson was one of the very best babies I've ever photographed, if not the best. The only challenge we had was getting this sweet boy to sleep without binky rings on his cheeks-major sucking power! But once he was out we were golden. He posed perfectly in every single position I tried. I always feel guilty moving these perfect little things around when they look so still, but Kayson was a champ and didn't mind a bit. Kayson's parents are so sweet, so it's not hard to figure out where his demeanor came from. I love how all his photos turned out.
