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!
This weekend was an incredibly fun weekend for me as I had the joy of photographing Kelly & Pav’s wedding celebration weekend. What an awesome event! And what an incredible joining of two loving families!
The weekend began with a cozy dinner at one of Park City’s best Italian restaurants, Cortona, and you could literally feel the happiness in the room! Everyone was so excited for this wedding!! Saturday was wedding day and it started super early and seriously continued on until the late hours. It was like we just kept going and going from location to location! First up, groom photos at their home, followed by bridal photos at the Montage. Then the ceremony site atop Empire pass and lastly an incredible reception held at Riverhorse. It was an incredibly full day that was just one minute of joy to the next. My favorite moment– when Pav saw Kelly for the first time as she came down the aisle. He smiled from ear to ear and Kelly was absolutely STUNNING! What a gorgeous bride!!
Kelly & Pav, I hope you enjoy your sneak peek! Thank you for welcoming me into your family. It really was wonderful to be a part of such an important day in your lives. Much love, Trish Watson spent most of the morning trying to figure out what we were doing there. He later became bored and took a power nap before the photos with the “Best Man/Dog”:) A gorgeous reception at the Riverhorse on Main
A had a super cool last minute booking last Saturday with the Kelley Family! They came to Park City for a family gathering and wanted a last minute photographer for their family shoot! I’m so glad it worked out. They are such a wonderful, sweet and loving group of people! Beautiful children and grandchildren and all the kids were so funny and helpful with the little ones it was great!! Enjoy your sneak peek Kelley Family!! xo, Trish
A few weeks ago during my last Vegas shooting trip, I had a super fun time photographing one of my favorite families; the Viado family. I first met them when we photographed Lourdes & Brian’s engagement photos, and then their adorable son Jace’s baby photos. Soon after her sister Cari met this amazing man named Geofrey and they were married and welcomed a beautiful baby girl named Zenyatta. And this time, I was lucky enough to photograph not only, Cari, Geofrey, Zen, Lourdes, Brian and Jace, but also their extended immediate family and Geofrey’s sister and son. It was a super fun time because I just love how happy this family is. They’re always so joyous and filled with laughter it never feels like work. And in my mind, I really believe the photos show it!! That love for them translates into amazingly beautiful photos.
Viado family, thank you so much for continuing to include me in your lives and in your family photo fun. Your family has always felt like my family to me. Love you guys!! Trish
A few weeks ago, our friends Allyson & Ryan became mommy & daddy. With the arrival of little baby Campbell, it’s been wonderful to see them loving her. It’s been a super fun journey with them over the past four years, in getting to know them, becoming great friends and now, the hopes of our little girls growing up together and being best friends. I was really glad to share this experience with them and also photograph little Campbell. She’s a little adorable peanut. Such a cute little baby, and so perfect. Hard not to love her:). Allyson & Ryan, we know you’re going to be amazing parents and having this much love in your lives will change you forever. Love all of you!!
Had a super fun time photographing this wonderful family and their adorable kids/grand kids; what a bunch of cuties! It was a first meeting for these tiny cousins, so it seemed important to document the fun! But man was it COLD!! Awesome family for an awesomely great time with photos. Much love!! Trish
My last shoot in Vegas was with a family that we pretty much call family; The Duke Family. I’ve been photographing these adorable babies since they joined us in this world. They are simply the cutest. most loving twins. They are so affectionate with mommy & daddy and each other, it just makes me feel great to know they’re on this planet with these wonderful parents.
We dealt with super high winds most of the shoot, but it barely phased these folks. They were resolve to have a great shoot, and so it was! We just ignored the wind and pushed forward!! And the result were some beautiful photos! Tanya & Bryan, we love you guys. Thank you for all of your love and support through the years. I’m always so glad to see you both! You and your children are pure sunshine. Love to you all. Enjoy your sneak peek!!
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, Trish
Last weekend was a whirlwind of fun seeing so many of my favorite people and meeting someone who is new to the world; Little Jameson. Could this baby be any cuter or any sweeter? He had a hard time sleeping at the shoot because he was so excited about his first photo session, but I know he was having a good time. I’m pretty sure this is the first time I’ve seen a baby smile this many times in the first five minutes of a shoot! He’s obviously getting a lot of love and attention from some pretty awesome parents, grandparents and aunts and uncles…oh and of course, his adorable cousins too!
Laurel & Dan, congratulations on this beautiful miracle. He’s simply adorable. Love to all of you and hope you enjoy your quick sneak peek. I know how anxious you are about seeing your gorgeous pics, so I got your blog post up ASAP!!:):) love you all!
Let me start by saying that Colby & Sarah have possibly created the cutest twins on earth. These two are so adorable and so sweet, honestly, you’ll get cavities just looking at them!! And their daughter Cecily is an absolute beauty as well! Their family is just beautiful! And of course add their adorable family to fall foliage and color and BOOM! You have photo MAGIC! It was a really great morning of shooting and perfect timing on the maples at Wasatch State Park here in Midway, Utah.
I’d also like to say that since we met Colby & Sarah, they’ve become wonderful friends. We’re really glad to have them in our lives and are so happy they have so much love in their family!! Enjoy your sneaker peeker you guys!! much love, Trish
