Blogmania!! Families, Families, Families!! Park City Family Photographer; Park City Family Portraits; Park City Photography

It has been a crazy summer.  So much fun in just a short period of time; I’m really going to miss summer this year.

It’s also been an extremely special summer; I was lucky enough to photograph the families of several friends this summer and lots of headshots.  One, my former coworker, Jason and his beautiful daughter Liv, and another, my best friend from the fourth grade, Devon and her beautiful family and lastly my amazingly beautiful friend Jamie and her adorable family.  I’ve been photographing Jamie’s family for years and I cannot get over how grown up the kids are now.  They were just so little when I first began to photograph them. Sigh….  It was beyond a blessing to cross paths with these old friends this summer but besides that, I’ve been photographing so many amazing families.  22 shoots in four weeks.  Some of them are becoming old friends too as I’ve been shooting them year after year, and some are new friends!

This blog post is just a handful of those shoots, but I wanted to share.  It’s been a whirlwind this summer, but a summer of incredible people and photos is my kind of summer.  Love to all of these beautiful families!    

Lisa & Dean & Little Addie In the Aspens + Grandma & Grandpa! Park City Family Portraits, Park City Family Photography, Park City Photographer

Last weekend it was SUPER COLD!! But–I had an awesome time photographing one of my favorite families in the aspens!!

Lisa has been my daughter’s swim coach since she was six months old.  She and her husband Dean and their daughter Addilyn have become like family to us.  Their super warm and loving nature just really makes my family love her family even more.  So when she asked me to do family photos for this adorable family, I was like ” YES YES YES!!”” So excited to give them something beautiful for their home to document this wonderful time in their lives while Addilyn is still little.

The bonus was that Grandma & Grandpa joined us and I just love them too!  And Addilyn was like a little adorable baby model! As was their svelt and graceful pup Claire!:)

Lisa & Dean, we love you guys!! Thanks for being such a cool part of our lives.  Enjoy your sneaker peeker! Much love, Trish0009LD 0002LD 0003LD 0001LD 0006LD 0008LD 0018LD momdad 0005LD 0019LD three

And now to one of my favorite families in Park City; The Swishers:).  These people are just some of  the nicest, sweetest and most loving people I’ve met since coming to Park City.  I’ve been photographing their family for a few years now and it’s always a total joy to see them.  They’re just such happening people and their kids are so friendly and fun, it’s just always awesome to see them.  And I LOVE their photos!! Shooting in snow is just the best!  And they love doggies too!!

Lisa & Stephen, thank you again for having me in your home and sharing part of your family holiday with me.  Excited to see more of you guys soon! Much love, Trish0099AA 0052AA 0062AA 0142AA 0180AA 0198AA

Back in Vegas with The Rodriguez Family! Family Portrait Photography, Family Photography, Family Portraits

Last weekend, while I was out shooting portraits, I had an awesome time seeing families new and old that I’ve been photographing for years.  One of those families is the Rodriguez family.  I photographed their wedding several years ago and since then, their family has grown by two bundles of joy named Francisco & Xiomara.

What I love most about these amazing people is that their love for each other and their family just seems to get better and better through the years.  Seeing them together I can still see the sweetness in their eyes and hearts for each other.  Which I find just beautiful.  They are two of the kindest people on earth.  And I’m super psyched to be a part of their family.    Anyway, enough gushy love for these two…enjoy the quick sneak peek and I’ll be in touch soon with lots more!! xoxo, Trish0002AT 0008AT 0010AT0007AT 0013AT 0015AT 0016AT 0011AT 0017AT two  0004AT

The Archibald Family; Fall Family Photos in Park City! Park City Family Photography; Park City Baby Portraits

Last Saturday I shared the afternoon with the Archibald family here in Park City for family photos.  Can I just tell you; they are the nicest, sweetest, cutest family you’ve ever met:).  We had so much fun at their shoot!  We laughed, we sang, we giggled…but mostly we ran with their 18 month old daughter Addie.  Addie is just so CUTE! And what an adorable little outfit to boot.  She is just a little slice of heaven and you can tell her parents think so too!  She loves, loves, loves her doggy Niayah, who appears to be one of the best and most patient dogs ever!!  And as a bonus we were able to squeeze out some of the last drops of fall color in the area.  So gorgeous this time of year!

Archibald family, thank you so much for spending the afternoon with me and for playing along with all my silliness as I tried to get Addie to really have a fun experience.  And thank you so much for bringing your AWESOME POOCH!  She was really my assistant that day for sure!! You’re two great parents with one loving little baby, which always equates to a great time at the photo shoot:).   Hope you enjoy your quick sneeker peeker!! Much love!

Joyce & Jeff and Their Beautiful Family at The Colony, Park City! Park City Family Photography! Park City Family Photos!

When it comes to family photography, sometimes you just get extremely lucky when it comes to weather…and this wonderful family got extremely lucky with the weather!! We had to reschedule Joyce & Jeff’s shoot due to freezing rain and snow, however, the result of that reschedule was the first snowfall of the seasons with the aspens in full color!! So it actually turned out to be fantastic!

Joyce & Jeff are just two of the nicest, most welcoming people you’ll ever meet.  They were so gracious and fun to be around that I really could have spent the entire day with them:).  And their kids were just awesome too.  They’re all so beautiful and funny, it just made for gorgeous fall family photos on their property at the Colony.  Joyce & Jeff, congrats on your new home!  Hope you enjoy this quick sneak peek.  Much love to all of you! 0019kate0013kate JJemail 0012kate 0010kate 0014kate

And a little sorority sister fun at the end!


The Bjordahl Family At Guardsman’s Pass! Park City Family Photos! Park City Family Photography!

Last weekend I had a great time photographing our awesome Veternarian, Kate Bjordahl and her beautiful family.  Special guests for the shoot were their new kitty Flash and their new pup Potato!  Can I just say that their kids are just adorable!  Super funny characters so there were a lot of recon missions and captures to get these monkeys to make this shoot happen:)  But truly, I could photograph little Ingrid all day.  She is just the cutest with that adorable hairdo and her overall cutie pie look!   It was a quick trip to grab some beautiful photos in the fall leaves and just a great morning with their family.  Kate has been a part of our family since we met her.  She’s just an amazing person with a wonderful heart for animals.  Thank you for sharing a little photo time with me Kate & Family, and hope you enjoy this quick little sneaker peeker!! xoxo, Trish0019kate 0010kate 0014kate 0005kate 0011kate 0009kate 0015kate 0021kate

The Starr Family In Deer Valley! Park City Rotary Park Photography; Park City Portraits at Rotary Park

Had a SUPER SUPER SUPER fun shoot yesterday with the Starr Family!  They are soooo fun!  Just love them and it really came through in their photos.  They are just adorable and such a tight knit group, it was just wonderful to be with them for the morning.  They were visiting Deer Valley, Utah and made a quick hour of time for a family shoot, which was just a blast.  Carol & Jeff, you have a beautiful family!  Enjoy the sneak peek!! Much love, Trish0025CSb 0001CSb 0002CSb 0017CSb 0018CSb 0008CSb 0011CSb 0016CSb 0013CSb 0015CSb 0021CSb 0019CSb 0023CSb 0022CSb 0026CSb 0024CSb 0006CSb

Ben’s Senior Session In Park City, Utah! Park City Senior Portraits, Park City High School Portraits

Night before last I had a seriously fun Monday shooting Ben’s senior photos up at Empire pass.  What a sky! What a great kid! What cool parents! Just a great shoot over all.  We just sort of lucked out on the weather aside from the extremely high winds, but Ben’s an outdoorsy sort of guy, so we were all like….”let’s do this!”.  And the results were just crazy cool!

This family is from Edina, Minnesota, which was so funny because it’s where I spent part of my childhood and of course everyone knows my husband is also from Minnesota.  But it was a fun thing to have in common cause we just love midwesterners!

Ben, I hope you like your sneak peek…and yes…I posted one of your extremely rare moose/humming bird shots.  That was some sort of miracle that we were able to capture that shot and that all those animals happened to be in that particular spot at that time.  Incredible shot…incredibly cool.  But folks, please don’t approach wildlife at home:)  Enjoy Mueller family! And hope the Park City vacation has been tons of fun so far!
