Buchmiller | Desert Maternity

I honestly love repeat clients. I love watching your children grow and your family evolve. I’ve had the pleasure of working with this family for the past couple of years and watching them go from newlyweds to mom and dad.

It’s such a privilege shooting maternity and newborns and sharing such special and intimate moments in peoples lives. Ok, who is cutting onions in here this morning…

Anyways. We have had such a wet year out here the in the arid desert, and let me tell you it is breathtakingly beautiful right now. So obviously this was the perfect destination for this beautiful family. We battled bugs, danced to baby shark and played in the dreamy yummy light. We got blessed with a beautiful sunset. All in all it was a great day.

Madrid Maternity | Wildflowers

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. 

Moab Maternity, a beautiful adventure.

 

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.

Chanel & Jesse Desert Maternity | Price Utah Maternity Photographer

I hate to play favorites but this one might be up there guys. The sky and the location is to die for! Not to mention Chanel and Jesse are pretty gosh darn good looking. I think they brought the heat to this desert maternity session. Cannot wait to meet their little lady.

Ragsdale | Desert Thunderstorm Maternity session

Sometimes you just have to roll with it while a storm rolls in. I envisioned a sunny pretty desert session, with flowers and their bold colors popping up all over. Mother nature had different plans, and I guess she knows best because I absolutely love how these turned out. The sky brought so much emotion to the pictures, and the wind just added to the whimsy. 2016-07-07_0001 2016-07-07_0002 2016-07-07_0003 2016-07-07_0004 2016-07-07_0005 2016-07-07_0006 2016-07-07_0007 2016-07-07_0008 2016-07-07_0009 2016-07-07_0010 2016-07-07_0011 2016-07-07_0012 2016-07-07_0013 2016-07-07_0014 2016-07-07_0015 2016-07-07_0016 2016-07-07_0017 2016-07-07_0018 2016-07-07_0019 2016-07-07_0020 2016-07-07_0021 2016-07-07_0022 2016-07-07_0023 2016-07-07_0024

Sometimes its hard to describe to other people. Sometimes you can’t find the words. Maybe there aren’t any words. All I know is beauty is everywhere. Like the way the sun paints the world in a golden blinding light. Illuminating everything and just for a few precious moments the world is shimmering and glittering around you. As if Midas himself has touched the ground around you and everything has turned to gold. The sky, oh the sky. It’s as if just for you, a masterpiece has been painted in brilliant colors. Colors so beautiful and impossible artists spend lifetimes trying to recreate them. And in those few fleeting moments as the sun kisses the earth goodnight, nothing shines quite as brightly as you. It’s like you aren’t part of this world. You are ethereal beauty in its purest form.

Its that motherhood glow.

All of that grandeur doesn’t come close to how beautiful you are.

How beautiful bearing new life is.

That little secret you keep inside of you.

Someone you’ve yet to meet but somehow love with all of your being.

So there is something special about the desert in the summertime, the light is magical, the skies are so clear and when you have a wet monsoony (whatever spell check thats a word, ok) summer its all in bloom. I’m moving into more natural and unposed family sessions. Just because I love the real expressions and moments. It seems when people tell me about their favorite pictures, they are snap shots of a candid moment and not posed ones with forced smiles. So I’m here to give you what you want. Pictures of those moments when you can’t help but laugh, or when your husband reaches down and touches your tummy without thinking. That moment when your youngest seems to just know that his time is coming to an end and clings to you for his last few moments alone, before he turns over the reigns to his new little brother. Life is crazy and beautiful at the same time ❤

Charlyn | Price Utah Newborn Photographer

Did you guys know I offer maternity sessions at a discounted rate if you book a newborn session. SAY WHAT?! I know dudes. I’m cool like that. Also, you can include the whole fam! Or you can do them alone, whatever you want. These sessions are all about you, your story and your new little one! This family was extra adorable and I was so happy to get to squeeze them in before they moved to California.

P.S. If you guys ever need pictures on the beach in Cali, have camera will travel!

Axton | Price Utah Newborn Photographer

I’m a little behind on blogging, ok a lot behind on blogging. I had a crazy baby boom, and the result was over loading my computer and frying my hard drive! Unfortunately the nearest Mac store is 2 hours away, which made something that should have been fairly easy turn into a 3 week fiasco. Phew, now that its all behind me I’ve been working on breaking it again by not giving it a moments rest. Seriously though. I have blisters on my wrist from editing so much. However, all these perfect little babies are worth the struggle! I almost got to be there for Axton’s birth, but things got a little complicated and mommy had a c-section instead. I did get to pop in and meet him for his fresh 48 and then again for his newborn session. To me its crazy to see the difference between 2 days and 2 weeks. Let alone how they look after a month! Talk about growing fast.

But yes, I do sometimes shoot births, I don’t advertise a lot for it because its hard to commit and lockdown such an unknown schedule without dependable baby sitters! I love them, I think they are magical and sometimes I wish I were secretly a doula. My dream job just might be to hang out with pregnant women all the time, be there while they deliver, capture those magic first moments of life on the outside and the first time baby and momma are united out of the womb. Then to get the little details of the human you made! The alien like fingers, wrinkly saggy skin. The first time they use their lungs to scream. Sigh. Its so magical.  I know I totally go out of my way to be a weirdo, sorry guys! I love fresh 48’s for the same reason. Love the raw unposed shots of the new little ones. Growing humans is amazing.

Thoryn | Price Utah Newborn Photographer

I absolutely love doing pictures for friends. I feel so honored that they want me to capture these moments for them. I’ve known Thoryn’s mom since Jr. High, and have been lucky enough to have kept in touch through the years. This little guy is the 4th addition to her family, and is so sweet and snuggly. Its less weird when I know my clients and love on their babies 😉 so thats another advantage. His mama is so crafty she made him that cute little turtle outfit, talk about doing it all! The Ninja Turtles poster is in his dad’s office and it was a fun way to add a personal touch to his pictures. Hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them!
