Lola jane

Seems like Lola was just here for her newborn pictures. Isn’t she a sweetheart. Mandy always brings the cutest outfits.


Amazing photography on the close up with the french netting hair piece! To be able to have the crispness in the eyes and the netting blurred … sigh. So good. Can we ask the mom where she got the hair pretties?

Oh my heck. She looks full of personality. How cute. So fun meeting you today. Your absolutely gorgeous! I wish I would have had more time to chat. My little gremlins were not letting me get much of anything in today! ;)

Oh thank you everyone for the sweet comments! I think she is adorable, but I know I am biased. You always do such a great job Katie! I can’t believe you were able to get such great pics with Lola not feeling well. You and Dan are so very talented!! We will always cherish these:)

First, I just want to say how much I love your work! If I lived closer I would be there for all of my daughter’s pics. Secondly, where did you get that cute tutu with the balls on it? Or did mom bring that one?

 ( Sep 1st, 2010 6:15 pm)

OMG The BEST birthday photos I have ever laid eyes on! What a doll! I love the cake, the backdrop, the pom pom skirt, her teeny tiny little bracelets, and all of that personality all over the place! This looks like it was a lot of fun!

 ( Sep 1st, 2010 2:04 pm)

OMG!! So stinking cute! Does anyone know where she got the Pettiskirt? I MUST have one for my little girl!!

Taelin Hansen

Little Taelin had the cutest little personality. I seriously love little girls especially when they let me put hats and headbands on and don’t pull them off.
And her mom brought the cutest dresses EVER!


We sell them. What size are you wanting?

 ( Sep 25th, 2010 5:05 pm)

You have probably already answered this somewhere, but I can’t find it. Where on earth did you get those cute ruffle shorts/top combo. That is adorable! Your pictures are amazing as usual!

 ( Sep 25th, 2010 12:10 pm)

fun sunday evenings

One of my girls favorite things to do is go to grandpa’s house on Sunday. They LOVE trolling around the garden picking peas and veggies and fruit from the tree’s. Thanks Dad for being the best Grandpa ever!
On a side note. Our house got hit by lighting the other night during the crazy storms and our internet got fried.
Anyway if you have tried emailing in the last couple of days, that is why I haven’t responded. It is up an running now and I’m trying to get caught up.

I LOVE these. I love the colors, I love the processing, I love the scenery. I love everything about these. They are simply beautiful. I would give anything for a backdrop like this in my backyard, or just accessible to me! It is absolutely PERFECT! Fabulously done my dear!

Love this family. Leah owns the best spa – Amara. If your ever in Orem you should check it out.
She really wanted the pram shot in the blossoms, so we took her baby in the front yard in the pram, and I photoshoped her into the field:)


The mommy holding her baby is absolutely divine! I want that photo hanging on MY wall! You just capture childhood and infancy with such soul!

 ( Aug 27th, 2010 5:35 pm)

I started following your blog when I saw some of you pics on etsy and just want to say how amazing your work is! I am starting to get into photography and I’m trying to take pictures of my newborn baby girl and want to know a couple pieces of advice you would recommend on taking pics of newborns? You have the most beautiful pictures of newborns I have ever seen! How do you get some of these poses like for example the one where they are propped up with their hands?!

You were absolutely amazing with taking these pictures! You have sooooo much patience! These twins were two months old, so yes… very difficult! Under the circumstances, I am totally taken back by the results! Thanks Again!

 ( Aug 21st, 2010 4:22 am)

Those twins are gorgeous and I love the fact that they are a little older, look at those beautiful open eyed shots, and the one with them in hats…..adorable. Then you have that beautfiul little girl with those amazing eyes, wow, stunning photos!

presley and jett

Another one of my favorite families. You would never guess that Presley use to hate getting her pictures taken. And of course she is really into fancy nancy right now, so we HAD to do a fancy nancy tea party. Too bad I didn’t have a video camera to record all of the cute things she was saying.


Love your photos. Just came across your site this week. Beautiful. I love that textured bean bag! Where did you get it? It would be so cute in my boys room!

 ( Aug 31st, 2010 1:27 pm)

I LOVE these headbands! Where did you get them?

I love this family and have loved photographing their kids over the years. And I LOVE how Josh just LOVES getting his pictures taken. Especially when he is getting peed and pooped on. I swear almost every dad gets pooped on during a session, and it is so funny to watch how they handle it.
