I think going someplace that you visit and adventure at as a family for family pictures is basically the best idea ever. Why not have pictures of happy memories. I remember going to the La Sal Mountains with my family to camp, and I would kill to have some pictures of us all together back then. Something to look at and smile on and let the flood of good memories and times flow through you. I mean I’m just as happy to do a session in a beautiful field, but getting to take pictures someplace special to you is just icing on the cake. Not to mention I love new places and exploring ❤
It was seriously such a long hard winter here in Utah, I thought for sure it would never end! The end result is something I have never seen before. The desert and everywhere in between is so in bloom. Its so green and lush and full of blooms. Just like these beautiful blooming gals. So yay for warmer weather, blossoms, baby bumps and beautiful families.
If you ever want to look majestic on a moutain, wind blown, and the subject of a living work of art, give me a call. All my life I wanted to be Annie Leibovitz, and this year I’m more passionate about making your pictures look like a vogue spread than ever. Lets go to beautiful places and take beautiful pictures. Make your memories more than smiling happy poses. Lets make them an experience, an adventure. To be honest shooting in Moab, Utah has been a bucket list for so long! One is crossed off and now I have a couple more I’m dreaming up. Come on Mama’s lets go play! Also been feeling more and more the fine art aspect of photography. It felt so magical making some digital art with what I have in my head. So get ready this girl is no longer your basic, ordinary photographer. We are going full artist mode. And we are gonna do it together.
There is so much I want to tell you about this fun little session, but the one thing that is weighing on my heart the most is that the scenery will never be the same. I’m thankful for pictures because it will be a long time before I get to tell a story like this at Potters Ponds again. So you know, go get pictures taken in the places you love. Next year it might not look the same.
Some things I really love about this session. I love these people. I love this location. I love the sunset, and I love that they got married in Scofield and we got to go back there for their family session. Family sessions are always better when there is a personal connection involved. Nothing more boring than standing in an anonymous backdrop and trying to get comfortable and act natural. Why not go somewhere you play together? That way when you look at the pictures, it stirs up all kinds of happy memories.
Yeah. Lets do that 😉
We live in a crazy beautiful state, and I am always in awe of the beauty in our surroundings. Its even better when I can convince my clients to come and adventure with me. I think the only thing more beautiful than the mountains, is this happy little family. Thank you Cassie and Derick for venturing into the wild with me, and allowing me to capture this special time in your life.
