Do you want to be my senior Rep 2015?

I realized I never finished posting pictures from Caitlin’s session.  She is stunning and I love the direct sunlight in this sunflower field.

Cafe Portrait Photography Session { Lacey }

I love portrait sessions.  But sometimes going to the same types of places get a little humdrum. So why not spice it up and get more creative with the locations.  For this one we decided to go with a bakery and cafe, called Enlighten.  Going a for more deep and moody look to the shoot this cafe was exactly what I wanted. Lacey looked beautiful. She owns her own hair extension company, find her HERE!

For portrait shoots is always fun to get your hair and makeup done! Not only do pro’s know what looks good for photography, but its also nice to get pampered.

My go to gal for portraits is Courtney!

Date Night Photography { February Mini Special }

My favorite thing to photograph? Couples!  My favorite pictures to be in? Pictures with my husband.  He is my best friend and I love to update pictures of us together every year during our family sessions. After weddings it pretty rare to have a photo session all about you as a couple. Just like life, it gets busy with kids and it can be hard to find time just together.  What a mistake!  Once all my kids are gone, its just me and my man, and I want plenty of pictures for memory lane with the two of us. So since its almost February, what a more perfect time than to make a date night of it?

So during the whole month of February I am offering a COUPLES ONLY date night special!

You’ll get all ready, I’ll meet you at a location of your choice (between SLC and Provo) and time, and  we’ll spend 30 min taking some fun pictures of you both together, then you’ll go off on your own and enjoy an evening together, dinner on the fabulous WAFFLE LOVE! (they have 2 trucks and now a restaurant in Provo!)  You’ll get 12 digital images for keeps, along with your choice of one on an 8×10 canvas, and a FB timeline cover image to show off!  Contact me to book!Feb Date Night Special
