When it comes to family pictures, no you don’t all have to wear matching shirts and kakis, Take the mother in this shoot for example, look at the pattern she is wearing and how it perfectly coordinates with the oldest sons shirt, or the youngest child wearing a beautiful white dress, making her stand out, […]

A happily ever high school sweetheart love story, I remember seeing Ariana and Brett making out in the halls at Connell, and now look at the beautiful family they have now! Three boys all-full of energy and adventure, whew, wrangling them must be a tiring job but Ariana and Brett make it look easy! I […]

And the cutest family award goes to: the Allred family! But for real, could a family be any more genetically perfect! The Allred family contacted me through a wedding I had done in May and I am so glad they did! I got to know this family pretty well because they accidentally locked their keys […]

The Holst family was so fun! The jumping pictures the fun poses, they had such fun together! Their personalities that really showed even in photographs!! Back in the day, when I was just starting out the Holst family was my very first paid family photo-shoot! It was right before the older went on his mission and […]

The Winterton Family was fantastic. Their outfits coordinated perfectly, what little girl can flawlessly pull off a fur vest!? This photo shoot was filled with so many “winner” shots, you know those pictures that you just want to obsess over and look at over and over again! Find your people, love them hard!

The Price family has always been a bright spot in my life. this family is awesome, tightly knit and truly happy. They have experienced adversity and grown together in a way nothing could break them apart! These photos were such a joy to take. I have taken Rachel’s (the oldest daughter) and Calebs (the oldest […]

There is just something about taking pictures of young families that just gives me all the feels. Tiny babies and big brothers… just the beginning of a lifetime of friendship, teasing, and a whole lot of memories. The Middletons are a family from the Columbia Basin in Washington, and aren’t they the cutest? We took […]

Of course I love taking pictures, but when it’s my family, especially family I don’t get to see very often, I love it even more!!! I used to look forward to family reunions to see my cousins that I hadn’t seen for way too long, Kylie and her sisters were some of my favorite cousins […]

I met Whitney at Idaho State. She played volleyball there while I was on the track team. This family is so tall, and it is awesome! Her daughter Brodi was so tiny. She was like a real life doll. She was perfect in absolutely every way. She has the sweetest little smile and the most beautiful […]

Family- that moment when you look around and realize you really do have it all. Lets get real, this family really does have it all! The glances, the style, and seriously how can one family be full of such gorgeous people?! This family was so easy to photograph. Everyone was 100% cooperative which is really rare. […]
