Before you take a look at these I wanted to say that as cozy and warm as Kara has made this charming cabin in the woods, her presence and welcoming attitude were even more inviting. And I had my heart stollen pretty quickly by that bright eyed, soulful child of hers. I’ve had some recent etchings on my heart that have so much to do with making images that are heart felt, that dig deeper into the story that is your life. Stories about your struggles your quiet depth. How you lived to make your children smile. Images that your children will look at and really know who they are and how you feel about them. I want to tell a story to you and your children of the incredible importance of their childhood and how your family shaped them. Images that lift you up and help you carry on in breathing life into the work you do in your family.
If these images pull at your heart and you want reminders of your life right now. I’d love to hear from you.
This is the fourth time I have sat down to write this post simply because this year was so dear to me, I couldn’t quite put it in words. 2016 is fast coming to an end and boy has it been a good year. Here are some of my favorites of mine throughout the year. Thanks for letting me be witness to your lives, your adventures and your love. I’m scheduling into February and March for in-home sessions where it’s nice and cozy inside. If you want pictures of your life that you will treasure with your favorite people captured now get in touch. I’d love to hear from you. Photographing in-home sessions are secretly the most gratifying aspects of this little job of mine (shhhh, don’t tell the other kind of sessions) and I’m always ridiculously happy when people invite me to take pictures of their life at home.
if there was ever a better piece of advice i’ve been given it would be this, to be sure to treat everyone as if they were going through something hard, because they are. we all are, it’s why we are here. and that everyone is doing the very best they can do. it makes it so much easier to open your heart and love the people around you the best that you can. we made some images at one of my favorite places in utah for this lovely family and i am so glad to share them with you. if you want your own images to hold onto and share with your favorite people, shoot me an email and we will make it happen.
I love how comfortable and easy it was to wander around with this family of five, how apparent their love to each other was and how easy it was to capture it. Many thanks to the Osmond family to trust me to preserve such a significant time in your lives, to the inner-workings of our the ig community for bringing us together, and for the sweet opportunity to do what I love.
