Summers {Utah Family Session}

This past fall I had the opportunity to photograph this amazing family. They were fabulous to work with and you can just tell that they all care about each other and have a special bond. That said each member is so unique and has their own personality and energy. Here are a few of my favorites from the session. 
Is updated family photos way past due of your family? Call or email me to schedule your session today. (435.764.3598 ~ iotamaker@gmail.com)

Winter Bridal Session {Utah Wedding Photographer}

  I am so excited to share this session with you. I had the opportunity to photograph this gorgeous winter bride on a very cold snowy day. The poor bride about froze to death but we worked super fast and I kept promising her it would be worth it. A special thanks to my dear friend and fellow photographer, Lynette Kankamp. that came up from South Jordan to shoot this bridal session with me. Here are just a few of my favorites from the session.

Back To School Photo Session Davenport Kids {Utah Children Photographer}

I had a great fall photography season! I was incredibly busy and didn't have time to update my blog so now that things have slowed down I thought I would go back and share some favorites from my fall sessions. 
Love this family and love these kids! I have taken their photos for the last 3 years. One I love to see them grow and change from year to year. They are such nice, kind kids! The little man is so stinking cute and mischievous! Love it! Here are a few more of my favorites!

Ten on the 10th Photography Project ~ January

Last year I did a 52 week photo challenge (theme each week 1 photo a week). It was a great project but sadly I had many weeks of no photos and then a major catch up day. I am happy to say I did finish the project and I don't regret having the photos. This year I decided to try a different project inspired by Sara Arrigoni - a fellow photographer, former classmate and friend. I am doing a 10 on 10 - 10 photos on the 10th of each month.  I am excited about this project for a number of reasons. One, the project is focused on capturing the everyday moment throughout the day. Second, it is only once a month :) I can do this! Ok well I wasn't off to a great start. If it wasn't for Sara's reminder on facebook I would have totally forgotten to take photos on the 10th. I honestly didn't realize it was already the 10th! Fortunetly I checked facebook in the morning and then quickly grabbed my camera to capture a few getting off to school pics.
