Gorgeous Fall Album - Family Fall portraits

I can't stress enough how much I love finished products. This is the album design for a gorgeous autumn orchard session we did in October. I can not wait to see and hold it in real life. There is just something incredible about a printed portrait. The smooth cool texture, the color depth, the way it sits on your lap while you turn pages… LOVE!

Those Boots! Fall photography - children

A quick nod to red boots. Seriously. I have a pair almost this exact color and I am really needing a good warm outfit to go with them. I love this little angel. I'll never get tired of photographing her or her sister (who was unfortunately at school when we had our fall session this year.) I can't wait to photograph them again together.

For a Good Cause

Congratulations to the S family for successfully out-bidding the rest of the Cub Scout supporters and winning a portrait gift certificate. I think they got a great deal, but I think I came out the winner because I am pretty sure I had way more fun photographing them than any of them had being my subjects. I hope you guys let me do your portraits again in a few years, so we can START with the noogies and rough-housing, instead of ending with the best.  photo 141009Swartz_034BCD.jpg  photo 141009Swartz_079B.png  photo 141009Swartz_118B.png

Seventeen years with my love, and better every year. In honor of my anniversary, I wanted to post these good friends of mine, who decided to celebrate their fifth anniversary with portraits at the place they were married. I love your story, guys, and I love your relationship which one can tell just by being around you is tender and devoted. I was honored to be a part of your celebration and think we ought to do it again in another 5 years! Here's to celebrations everywhere today!

Better Than a Stick in the Eye (Utah Family Photographer)

 photo 140915Erickson_217B.png  photo 140915Erickson_036B.png  photo 140915Erickson_141B.png  photo 140915Erickson_275B.png  photo 140915Erickson_302B.png  photo 140915Erickson_430B.png  photo 140915Erickson_344B.png Poor little guy actually did get a stick in the eye right before we started shooting. He bounced back quite nicely, though, as you can see. I love that this session was a month ago, and the fall color was just as spectacular then as it is now. It really just depends on the location, and I spend a LOT of time in the car in the fall finding the perfect location for each session. I'd actually love to go back to this location now that the leaves are all on the ground - it would look totally different but just as breath-taking. Any takers? Thanks, K for trusting your family to me! :-)
