Rob + Katie {Married}

How cute are these two?! They were married just a few days after Thanksgiving in the Jordan River Temple. It was beautiful-and FREEZING!! I loved that they wore their coats and gloves for pictures. They'll remember what the day was really like, and I think they look darling!

Before and After

With it being the busiest time of the year and all, I've had a lot of people ask me why it takes so long for them to get their pictures back.

Let me explain...

Photography is more than just having a "nice camera". It is a mixture of creativity and education. It is all about knowing how your camera works and why, and then being able to make it work for you. But after that, comes the real work (or at least a lot more time). Each image that I share with my clients has been extensively edited. I can spend anywhere between 10 and 30 minutes per picture. So if you're getting back say, 35 pictures, it has probably taken me between 7-10 hours just to edit them. It's not just a simple process of coming home, putting the photos on my computer and burning them to a disk.

I think it's worth it though. What do you think?

Sweet Baby -N-

I had the pleasure of photographing this darling little guy on his 14th day of life. Isn't he a beautiful newborn? (That's okay to say about a boy baby, right?) I think he is just the cutest little thing! Maybe we should arrange a marriage between him and our new little lady on the way. Perfect!

Christmas Tree

Lucy was all dressed up this morning and looked so cute, so I decided to get a few pictures of her in front of the Christmas tree. I actually tried to do this the other day, but I can't tell you how much easier it is to get pictures of this one with Dad helping! By myself, it's totally impossible. :)

She loves to sing songs. This is her doing the actions to one of them.

-A+M- Married!

I don't know why, but every wedding I've ever shot at the Manti Temple has been absolutely freezing! This one was no exception! But I love how the newlyweds are never the ones complaining about the weather-they're just so happy! These two were so cute together, and they were good sports about staying out in the cold to get some great shots!

-Sweet Baby C-

This is a super emotional post for me. This sweet little guy's momma (K) is one of my closest friends. I've known her since we were like 14, and we've stayed in touch ever since. We were all so excited for his arrival, it was a long time coming.

Well when K went into labor, the umbilical cord ruptured-an extremely rare and basically undetectable complication. The medical staff had baby C delivered in just a few minutes, but he had already lost a lot of blood.

This sweet baby spent a month at Primary Children's Medical Center before he peacefully passed away. You can read more of their story here or visit his beautiful tree at Salt Lake City's annual Festival of Trees through this week.
