Johnstun Family {Salt Lake City Family Photographer}

Meet my pal, Lukas.

Salt Lake City Family Photographer (1)

Lukas loves dinosaurs.   He likes to line them up.

Salt Lake City Family Photographer (2)

He likes to count them.

Salt Lake City Family Photographer (3)

He likes to arrange them on top of things.

Salt Lake City Family Photographer (4)

And most of all, he loves to knock them all over!

And then we all laugh about it.   Then Lukas repeats.   Line ‘em up, count ‘em all, knock ‘em over, laugh.  Repeat.

Lukas’ mom is one smart lady.   A lot of times when we have pictures taken of our kids, we hesitate to allow toys or anything else in the picture with them.   However, sometimes their favorite toys make the image better, personal and more meaningful.  Chances are Lukas won’t love these dinosaur toys forever.   That’s why I love that she brought these along.   Not only did we capture his precious three year old smile, but also his three year old interests.

Lukas has amazing parents who are extremely talented.   And I’m lucky enough to have them as some of my closest friends.

In the spirit of  throwback Thursday, I’m sharing these pictures of Lukas’ mom before he was born and her sweet message to him.

Along with today’s sweet message.

Check out Kase’s book due out later this year on  Craniosynostosis, a Congenital Skull Deformity.
And a book that both Kase and Mary worked on, Utah Reflections, a collection of stories about the Wasatch Front.

Grima Family {Ogden Family Photographer}

Suriya and I are going on close to 30 years of friendship.   Her friendship is one of the things I cherish most in my life.   We don’t get to see each other often but we make a point of catching up as much as possible when she is in town.   This time her visit was even more special because I got to see her whole family.  It was so fun to catch up with you all for a bit.

I know it sounds crazy, because we are grown with kids now, but you all look exactly the same as I remember you 20 years ago!

Little Emma didn’t want much to do with getting her picture taken, unless….. it was in the water fountain.

Ogden Family Photographer (19)

So, we went with it and took her pictures in the water fountain.

And when she still didn’t want to leave the water, we took the family’s picture at the water fountain too.

The Tradition Continues

Two years ago today, I blogged about the Bird Family’s love of the number 7 and Ricky wearing number 7 for the first time.   Today, the tradition continues and Ricky is headed to the Little League World Series (State Baseball Championships) tomorrow wearing the beloved number 7.

I know I’ve been absent lately on my blog.  It’s been one busy and crazy half of a year and some things fell through the cracks.  But I’ve really missed blogging regularly and will be back more consistently soon to catch you all up on what we’ve been doing.   My poor mother in law is probably wondering if we’re still alive over here!     We’re here, DeDe!   Alive and well and spending lots of time at the baseball park lately :)

Natalie {Salt Lake City Maternity Photographer}

I couldn’t be happier for Natalie, who is like a little sister to me, and her family who is welcoming a baby girl very soon.    Natalie and I share the same love of photography so she is always willing to let me play around with different ideas, this time with a few different lighting techniques.   Thanks, Nat.  You’re just stunning and I can’t wait to meet that beautiful baby girl!
