This was an extended family session I did last fall, and I can't believe I haven't shared it here yet! I talked with Janet over the phone as she told me her concerns with shooting a group this large. I quickly assured her that I'm excellent at managing the chaos that comes with big groups, and we scheduled a date.

Once everyone arrived that day, I soon found out that NONE of them were even from Cache Valley! Some of them had travelled 5 hours that day for our session and I was floored!

I'm so grateful day after day that my clients trust in me enough to capture these photos for them- even enough to drive hours in one day to do it!

Thank you Rose family! I loved meeting you all!

Kamille asked me to do maternity photos AND a birth story for her little babe, and I was elated!! I usually get people asking to shoot one or the other, but I always hate that it makes us skip the "other stage".

We met in Lava Hot Springs, Idaho just off the side of the road in a gas station parking lot. It was snowing so hard that day, and I'm kinda glad it was. These little snowflakes in their hair are everything! This bold, red rock was just a little spot I found along the busy highway, and I'm so happy Kamille was daring enough to let us shoot next to it as trucks were passing by us!

These are some of my favorite maternity photos I've done, and I just love the people in them, too!

I think we all wanna be Melissa when we grow up! She is beautiful, kind, and so funny! I just get excited each time she asks me to photograph her again!

We did some deeper photos in Transcend Yoga Studio, and I loved shooting a little differently this time. I wanted to show her connection that she has with her body, because I don't think it's appreciated enough in the world! She can move like nobody else I've ever seen!

Love you Mel!
