Whats Hot

Silver Lake Triple Header (Salt Lake Family Photography)

I've been up to Brighton so often in the past week I feel like I should buy a cabin there to save on gas. Actually, I'll take the cabin just for the fall scenery. It'd be well worth the price. I have so much to post I've got to consolidate, so I'll post a week's worth of work to conserve time:

My week started out with photographing one of my best friends, and in my opinion the Queen of Family Photography herself, Allison Watkins of English Photography. She has had so much influence in my life and on my career, I can't even begin to describe how nervous I was! Not in an "Oh, I'm going to mess up" kind of way, but in a "I've got to give her something spectacular!" kind of way. I think she is pretty spectacular, and her family is so good looking, that it really wasn't too hard. Thanks so much for this opportunity, Allison! I was very humbled and honored that you trusted this to me.


So I didn't think the leaves would last all week, but because of the hot dry weather, and not a lot of storms to blow them down, it still looked great by Saturday. Even though I have some great fall-leaf-background images of the B family, I just LOVED this close up and all their great expressions! You guys were so much fun. I can't remember if this was the "Jar Jar" image, but that whole thing just cracked me up!


This evening the gods of Fall finally showed up with the cold weather. I am not a cold weather fan, but even I thought it was about time! The AC in my van is broken, and I really didn't want to get it fixed until next summer, but good grief, this week was hot! Anyway, I want to give a great big thanks to the C family who answered the call of duty when I sent a desperate plea via email for another family to shoot in this amazing location. This is the first year I've ever shot here, and it is definitely on the top of my list now! I couldn't let the season's peak go without doing one more session here. Thanks for braving the cold, and for throwing things together at the last minute. It was well worth all the effort!


The high altitudes are just about done with their autumn displays, but the mid-altitudes are just turning, and the valley hasn't even started yet. I still have October sessions available if you want to take advantage of the amazing scenery. Call (801) 556-1661 to reserve your appointment.

The portraits are wonderful. The fall colors are fantastic and the perfect setting for these portraits. I especially have a soft spot for the C family and would love to have a copy of this portrait for my home!!
