The Garden is Ready!! (Utah Spring Portraits)

I think blog land is missing me - and I know my kids are! I have been photographing the fabulous production from The Children's Ballet Theater - The Secret Garden. It will probably be this weekend before the images are ready to view, if that is what you are looking for.

In the meantime, I thought I'd remind everyone that it is Full Bloomin Spring outside. The blossoms are just now prime, and will probably last for about 7-10 days. I am currently taking reservations for the garden. Right now the daffs are crazy awesome, and the peach tree will probably be bright pink this weekend/early next week. The tulips are about 10 days out, and the apple tree blossoms will follow shortly. If you would like a garden session, I am offering them at a minimum purchase of only $125 (regular sessions are $400 minimum purchase.) This location is private, relaxed, and has gorgeous evening light! Easter Dresses and Mothers' Day portraits would be perfect in this setting. Call (801) 556-1661 if you would like to reserve one of these limited appointments.

PS How cute is little K2 in her new glasses? Both her daddy and I are quite near-sighted. She really didn't stand a chance of having normal eye-sight.

Portrait Therapy (Utah Maternity Photography)

I have so much on my mind about this portrait session, I'm not sure where to start. This was such an incredible experience for me! My good friend is obviously expecting a baby, and she asked if I would do some maternity portraits of her. She wanted them to be more than a documentation of her pregnancy, and more a way to unify the multi-faceted aspects of her life. Every woman who becomes pregnant knows it's a major adjustment in self-image. On one hand, you are amazed at how your body will change to support another life, and at the same time, you may feel pretty negative about how those changes reflect in the mirror. S decided that she would deal with these emotions; as well as unify her pregnancy, her active lifestyle, her love of horses, and her self-image, by having portraits created that make her feel feminine, beautiful, active, and sexy. No pressure, Kris. Needless to say, it wasn't very difficult. S, you are such a strong, gorgeous, generous, and amazing woman! I have no doubt you will be a wonderful mother. Thank you again for granting me this perfect day!
