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!!

Wishing You a Merry Christmas and a Stellar New Year

Late one Thursday night in October, as we traveled to Grandma’s house, we pulled our car off the road. In between cities, miles from anywhere inhabited, a new moon night, I set up the tripod and a remote. Some kids were asleep and really were not excited about being woken up. It was cold. It was stressful being the mom and the photographer – let’s be honest, I should always hire someone else. After our summer adventure with the solar eclipse, I got this vision in my head of what to do for our annual Christmas Card Photo. While it’s not perfect, that’s ok because neither are we. Here’s wishing you a stellar New Year!
