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!

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

The Duke Family In Las Vegas! Family Portrait Photography, Family Portrait Photographer

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!! 0023TB 0024TB 0037TB 0034TB 0025TB 0021TB 0030TB 0026TB 0036TB 0044TB 0041TB

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 Adcock Family In Park City, Utah! Park City Family Photography; Park City Portraits

Saturday morning I was up bright and early to photograph the Adcock Family out in Glenwide.  These people were troopers!  I have to admit before I showed up at their house, they kept warning me about their large family….and “was I up for it…”:) Of course I was up for it!  And they were all really great! Charlie & Sue have a wonderful home that’s perfect for entertaining such a large family!  And Cathie and her family were also just wonderful!  Before the shoot Charlie & Sue were kind enough to have me stop over for a quick visit so he could help me select the best spot for the shoot and I think it worked out great.  I hope you all had a super fun week together for the family reunion and hope you enjoy your quick sneak peek!  Much love, Trish0031FULL 0034CSb 0035CSb 0036CSb 0037CSb 0033CSbRET 0038CSb 0041CSb 0039CSb 0043CSb

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!

Kely & Dave Celebrate 25 Years of Marriage!! Park City Portrait Photography! Park City Portraits

Last week I booked a shoot sort of last minute for a couple that was going to visiting Park City for their 25th anniversary; that couple is now one of my new favorite couples.  Kelly & Dave.
Seriously, these two are more fun than a barrel of monkeys!  And truly, I could shoot them every day.  They were up for anything and really I don’t think any of us stopped giggling for even a minute until we got kicked out of the old Talisker property!  But they were even up for that!  We had such a great time and these two have really got things figured out after being together 25 years.

What I always think is great is when I see a real connection between people.  And what’s more, when I looked at their incredible photos, It was almost like I was looking at 2-twenty year old kids.  Still with eyes for each other, still with a great connection and still in love:).  Kelly & Dave, so great to have met you both.  I hope you enjoy your gorgeous photos and there are lots more on the way!! Much love, Trish0008KD 0007KD 0003KD 0004KD 0009KD 0005KD 0006KD
