California Cuties

I have had the pleasure of doing a photo shoot this beautiful family when I  was in California a couple of years ago.  Recently they came to Utah and I got the pleasure of taking their portraits again.  They are indeed adorable kids.  Thanks L and maybe if I get down to California, we can have a family shoot at the beach. 


Look at this little cutie and her glasses. 

And these little cuties joined us for an impromptu session in thier cute tutus.

Well summer has come to an end and we decided to take the kids out this weekend for a last minute mini vacation.  It started off on Friday with a birthday party for Spencer.  His birthday was the first of August but he was at scout camp, so we gathered up some friends and headed to boondocks.  The boys got to practice their driving skills on the slick track.  (warning!!! I can’t shoot a point and shoot camera!!! LOL!! )

Brenden and Jaeden enjoyed soaking everyone. 

They played race cars, miniature golf, laser tag, and lots and lots of video games!!!!  It was a great birthday party.

Then the next day we woke up and packed up and headed to Park city!! We had a ton of fun at the Park City summer park.  Our personal favorite was the alpine roller coaster.  If you have not done this yet, make it a goal to get up there and try it out.  Nothing like going to the top of a ski hill and then going down it on a roller coaster track!!! So fun!!!!!  I have to admit that the first time down scared me a little!!

Strapped in and ready to go!!


Going up

And coming down!!

This is the end of the coaster and there was no way to get pictures higher up.  But there were a lot of twist and turns and going really really fast!!!

Brenden and Jaeden tried out the trampolines and without hesitation, Brenden decided to start doing flips.  He just kept flipping over and over again.  Maybe we have a little gymnast on our hands.  LOL!. 


And of course all the boys had to try the rock climbing wall.  Here Kaleb and Jaeden do their best to reach the top.  Notice Kaleb does not have shoes on…that’s my boy!!!

And Spencer makes it to the top!!!

So after a day of roller coaster, alpine slide, zip line, miniature golf, trampoline and rock climbing, we finally went and got dinner, exhausted and sunburnt.  It was a lot of fun and I have to say that I love unplanned vacations. 

So the last two posts have been about my family.  Stay tuned for some beautiful images from a couple of weddings.

Dashing young men

I was shooting a wedding the other night, and suddenly I see two of the most dashing young men.  Their hair was combed, faces washed, and clean clothes.  I knew I HAD to get a picture of these two handsome things.  So with a huge sigh, and a “oh mom” they both flashed me their posed smiles!! Gotta love that!  And then they were off.  And for a moment, I wondered if I had just imagined them looking so spiffy.  LOL!!!



But alas, it did not last long.  Soon Bren was back to the ice cream faced little boy that I love. 



What can I say… I love my boys, dirty faces and all!!!!

I have the best times with my brides.  Things don’t always go as  planned, but I like it that way.  Sometimes just exploring and trying new things helps you get the best images.  Crystal is always up for an adventure and I love that about her.  She did not mind me dragging her all over SLC and making her climb steep hills while wearing high heels.  She is such a trooper.  Thanks Crystal!!! You look beautiful and I am sure Mr. Hot Fiance will agree.
