Happy Father’s Day | Utah Newborn Photographer

A precious little girl named Navy came to this earth a few months ago, and she has been blessed with some pretty amazingly fun parents, plus mom is an incredible decorator! This mama just celebrated her first Mother’s Day as a mother, and in just a few days, this dad will celebrate his first Father’s Day as a father. Do you remember your first Mother’s or Father’s Day as a parent?

This is probably my favorite shot from this session. I love how dad is just relaxing between “poses.” I know my husband works pretty hard for our family and as a result he is really good at falling asleep anytime he ends up in reclined position, and I’m going to assume that most dads actually have this superpower. So when I look at this photo, I see a hard-working dad who cares about his family, and would do anything for them, who is just taking a much deserved break. Now I know that a lot of the stress of raising a newborn falls on the mother (obviously, I’m a mom, I’ve been there!!) but dads need to take a load off too. And that’s why I love this photo! (Extra bonus: He’s looking at his wife <3)

This is a such sweet time of life, full of new experiences and making memories of all your “firsts.” One of my favorites is the first time our oldest’s diaper leaked on my husband’s pants… at church…lol! He very quickly excused himself and ran home to change. There will be many “leaky diapers” and “spit up,” like Navy is doing a few photos down, as we go throughout life but there will also be many moments of happy smiles and hugs and kisses. Congrats to this new little family! Enjoy all those firsts!!


Hailey & Harmony | Baptism Portraits

Hailey and Harmony will turn 8 soon and have chosen to be baptized as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. This is a special occasion and their mom requested a portrait session at the Las Vegas Temple. When we are baptized, we make promises or covenants with God and we look forward to the next promises we will make which are in the Temple, the House of God, so it was a very fitting location for this session. You know, with twins, you have two heads of hair to curl, two dresses and pairs of shoes to keep nice, even two mouths of teeth to brush. But all their mama’s hard work paid off, as you can see how beautiful these girls are!! She let them pick out their own dresses and shoes, and I love how they chose not to match! Sometimes with twins, we love to be matchy-matchy, but I love seeing their personalities shine through their dress & shoe choices. Hailey and Harmony are fun, darling, giggly girls who love each other, and who love their Father in Heaven <3
