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!!


Bryce | Class of 2018

Bryce loves being outdoors, he loves mountain biking and he loves off-roading. Lucky for him, he lives where the weather is mostly good (except for that blasted summer heat!) and he can do these things pretty much year-round. He also happens to live by some world-class mountain biking trails. So naturally, we had to incorporate these into his senior session. I really enjoy seniors. It’s a pivotal point in their lives, yes, and many important decisions and changes will soon be made/coming. I love taking the short time I have with them, finding out what makes them “them” and helping their uniqueness and individuality shine through their portraits. Senior sessions are so fun. Congratulations Bryce!
