Merit Academy Cheerleaders - Dance and Cheer Team Photographer

I love to photograph cheer and dance teams, they are so much fun. Here's a little secret for you all, I was a cheerleader in high school for three years, and on the pom squad one year. : )

Meet the Varsity and Jr Varsity squads from Merit Academy in Springville! Good luck this year girls, thanks for letting me photograph you all on a bitter cold afternoon!

Hilgendorf Family Sneak Peek - Utah Family Photographer

I've had lots of neighborhood friends visiting me lately, but this family is extra special... I've learned a lot from this fellow photographer. He used to host photographer workshops every month where we could all learn and grow from each other, they were so much fun, too! Sadly, he is one more professional who is no longer shooting, for a few years at least. I was honored to photograph them, it was my treat really, because look how beautiful they are!

If those were my girls I would give them anything they asked for! Look at those eyes!

The Burr Family - Utah Family Photographer

Meet another set of our lovely neighbors. I got to photograph them a few days ago in the beautiful fall leaves that are still hanging around. They are such a fun family and we love having them live nearby. Aren't they the cutest family ever?! 

Bryan is a wood sculptor, too. He made all the drums in the images below. He also made that cute little elephant for our home! Jeremy travels to India and brought home some small carved elephants, so we asked Bryan to try his hand at a large, Indian inspired elephant, to go in our bedroom. I LOVE it! If you want to order any special wood friends or winter snowmen, give him a call - 801.830.9018.  : )

 What should we name him?

The C Family - Utah Professional Photographer

Maybe it's the sudden cold weather, but I was feeling vintage inspired as I edited these. I got to spend the last warm weekend day with this great family. They were so awesome to photograph, up for anything I suggested, and oh so photogenic. And the best part is, we're neighbors, so I made new friends, too.
