There is no doubt in my mind that Jared and Krissy are meant to be together. Jared is from SoCal, Krissy is from Idaho…. they met by chance at a baby shower while Jared was serving his church mission in Nampa, Idaho (of all places). They caught each other’s eye and wrote to each other until Jared’s mission was complete. They fell quickly and easily in love and never looked back.
Fast forward to April 13, 2016… They got married! I was lucky enough to grow up knowing Krissy. She is like my little sister. I literally have been best friends with her older sister Ashley for 20 years! So it was a no brainer to fly down there to photograph such an important day in her life.
After their wedding in the Temple, we took some fun photos with family and around the grounds, then headed to Laguna Beach for a quick little session, and then on to their SoCal reception. It was in a stunning backyard with delicious food. Jared caked Krissy after cutting the cake, the two danced in the sunset light, and then Krissy performed an incredible hula dance that she choreographed just for this special event. It was perfect, there was love all around us. It is a memory I am sure they will never forget. Thank you Krissy and Jared, the Olson family, and the Galeais for including me in such an amazing day! I love you guys!
We thought long and hard about what we wanted our Valentine mini sessions to look like. Not too red, not too white, definitely not too “lovey”. Then we had to take into consideration coming off an amazingly awesome, too … Continue reading
Did you ever think “it would be so nice to have the photographer come to my house”? You work so hard on making that perfect nursery, and then no one gets to share it. This morning we were honored to meet Knox, his big brother and his mommy and were able to photograph the cutest little guy all relaxed and in his own element. We LOVE lifestyle sessions. Taking it slow and just enjoying each moment watching the family interact and capturing those special memories. I hope you enjoy this look into a morning with Knox.
Do we ever need an excuse to take photos of this beautiful little girl? No….but here’s a great excuse anyway, it’s her birthday. Celebrating and capturing mile stones in your life, documenting the yearly changes…why do we do this? Well in this instance we need to so we can remember how adorable that sweet little girl is and the fact that she will only turn “2”…once. In other cases maybe it’s just to capture the toothless smile, or the cutest little hair cut, or do you really need a reason? Bring on the smiles, silly faces or just the I’m in deep thought look…it doesn’t really matter just capture it!
So every year we do family photos in the fall. Family photos are probably our longest standing tradition. As they should be right? With us being photographers and all :)Two times we have postponed our tradition to the following spring. Those two times have been when I (Aubrey) was pregnant in the fall, due the following February. February came, baby Jaycie arrived, spring sprung, and the weather became somewhat cooperative, so we headed out with my dad’s newly redone pickup to take our family photos. In years past, we set the camera timer and I would run multiple times back and forth until we got a good one. This year we drug my uncle along to take the big family picture. It was a great idea and I didn’t have to run around like crazy. He did fabulous and so did everyone else :). So here is our family shoot, documenting the Music family in 2014:
The day started out a bit chilly, a bit windy, and a forecast of “definitely going to rain”. The sky was dark and dreary (but perfect light for us photographers) and had an ominous feel to it. My young couple pulled up excited and ready for their engagement session, with their unstoppable smiles and umbrella in hand we started out on our morning adventure.
Kristen was game for anything, with her “conquer the world by storm” attitude, and Josh, well he was along for the ride. Wearing boots and the cutest little dress ever, she had the poses down like she was born to do this. Josh on the other hand, had eyes only for her. You could see he wasn’t comfortable yet with the camera on him but he was comfortable holding his beautiful fiancé’, so we played on that.
Josh, a Tech Sergeant in the Air Force, met his beautiful fiancé’ about 4 years ago at Bogus Basin as he was moving from Alaska to Utah. They became close friends and then fell in love. Kristen thinks “he is about the sweetest Prince Charming a girl could ever ask for”, and I must agree. It is always refreshing to see this much love, this much caring, and this much happiness and it really shows in their pictures. Their wedding day is July 12th of this year and we can’t wait! We are so very excited for the 2 of them and their new adventures together.
Being a mommy to the sweetest little boy and a little girl on the way, nothing makes me happier than being able to capture a mother and her baby. There is such a special bond between a mom and her child. These two just had fun in front of the camera. They played the way they play at home, and I couldn’t be happier with the way this shoot turned out. This little girl is so stinkin smart and so much fun to capture. The big kisses for mommy are my absolute favorite. Thank you Megan for choosing us to capture your sweet little girl and the amazing love between the two of you!
