You know you are old when the little girls you used to babysit end up magically becomming teenagers... who in turn start to babysit YOUR kids. sigh... needless to say, I grew up with this family and love them to pieces! We took these pictures right here in Corner Canyon, which is the stunning backdrop to our neighborhood. Pretty fitting I would say.
Sage Brush truly is a horrible weed, most of the year it smells funny (ok... thats all year round) and looks drab. However something magical happens to sage brush in the fall... and that vibrant yellow and matte green became the perfect combination for a beautiful fall setting for the Bakers! Also... can we talk about how ridiculously good looking these two are together? When I got them alone towards the end I thought I was taking engagements... that was until I finally internalized the crying children in the background :) Love this family!
This little one is very close to my heart. Her parents, Tyson and Chanda are two of our closest friends and we have watched them struggle with infertility and complications for the last 6 years. There is no assortment of words that can describe the feeling of joy and love I know they feel, just as I do when I see this precious miracle that has come into their lives. Incredibly humbled to have captured some these moments for them.
The Welch Family. What a sweet family they are! It doesn't take long to realize that their little (and gorgeous may I add) girl, is their entire WORLD! And I don't blame them. She is the cutest thing ever! This was also one of the most easy going shoots I've had yet. I'd say if anyone stirred up emotion, I was the one to blame asking them to get adventurous with me and climb through a boulder field for the "perfect shot". But hey, like I reassured them in the moment, you'll thank me later... and I was right. IT WAS WORTH IT! But I am sorry for the bruised ankles... but lets be honest....a shoot with me isn't really a shoot with me until you get a little dirt on your shoes. #amiright
