Dodds Family | Green Canyon {Logan Utah Family and Child Photographer}

Despite the all of a sudden change in weather and the little snow that started to fall I LOVE how these turned out, and more so than anything this amazing family did a great job. Without the help of a great mutual friend Lila, this would not have been possible. (Thank you Lila for driving and helping during their session! Love you!) 
Over the last few years I have gotten to know Chris and Brandi pretty well. One thing that you cannot tell in picture is that both Brandi and Chris are vision impaired. Brandi with total loss in vision and Chris still legally blind does still have minimal eyesight.  Regardless of that limitation these two conquer the world and have created this beautiful family. Brandi has taught so much about life and how to laugh at myself when needed :P 
Being a mother has been one of the hardest callings in my life! I am totally at awe watching Brandi mother her children. No words can describe how incredible AMAZING she is!! Chris himself hasn't let his vision stop him from chasing his dreams. He played on the 2008 USA Men's Paralympics Goalball team in Bejing and is currently training for a hopeful spot on the team going to Rio. They never cease to amaze me! How many of us have accomplished half as much?!? I know not me! Between our many fun talks about mismatched socks and colored towels in the whites..hahaha. Brandi has grown to be a close friend and teacher to me. 
Last but not least are their beautiful daughters! It is no small task being asked so much of at a young age, but these two daughters have shoulder the responsibility astoundingly! This year they welcomed another darling girl to their family and they are all in love with miss B. Her laughs and smile are contagious and her whole body shakes when she laughs! 
When I think of this family I can't help but tear up and think of them as the most amazing people I know. Never once have I heard them complain or be mad, they just face everyday like everyone else.

Park City Adventure | Villalobos Family {Northern Utah Family Photographer}

I have been fortunate to be acquainted with this family and get to call them friends now. Danny and Alissa embarked on a great adventure to come to Salt Lake so Danny could attend Physician Assistant school. I'm so grateful I got to meet and hang out with Alissa and her little girl Addi this summer while our husbands slaved away studying one Saturday! PA school has been awesome experience even better to meet awesome people along the way! One thing is for sure little miss Addi has her daddy completely wrapped around her little fingers and he totally is smitten by her!!! :D (as it should be) Oh wait did I mention it was FREEZING COLD???.... hahaha

Jaggz | Newborn Lifestyle {Logan Utah Family Photographer

A couple of weeks ago I got a surprise phone call from Kylee asking me to come take pictures of her new little man. I was so excited to do this for them because three years ago I got to meet Kylee and her little girl Briggz when I took her newborn photos. :) Lifestyle newborn photography is becoming my new norm and I completely am in love with how super fun and easy going it is. Even better is when you walk into a brand new home that you can't stop swooning over either. I'm glad the Lewis family is settled in their new home and have their highly anticipated little one to make it more complete. There is definitely lots of LOVE in this sweet family! :)
