A few weeks ago, we had more amazing company. Our old friends Melanie & Greg showed up for a quick weekend visit with their great friends Robyn & Glenn. To say we had an amazing time seeing them really is an injustice. We shot their wedding many years ago, I think almost 10 years ago…and we were all in the same places in our lives, so we also developed a great friendship with them. They are seriously two of the most loving and amazing people we’ve ever know. Such supportive friends and just really doing super cool adventures in life. They and their awesome friends made time for portrait shoots and I’ll be blogging Robyn & Glenn next week. I can’t tell you how happy it makes my heart to know how happy they are. Their love has just become even more incredible with age. Seeing them just made me miss them 100 times more. But man was it an awesome, fun visit!! Mel & Greg, come back soon!! Just a couple quick pics…but truly, there were so many I loved.
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!
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.
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!!
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!!
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
Last weekend for Thanksgiving the entire Salway family made their way to Park City for a week of family fun…Part of that fun was to be their family photo shoot. But MAN was it cold outside for a shoot and we even kept trying to move the shoot to avoid the weather! But they did their best to get smiles on everyone’s faces; after a few large group shots and fun with the kiddos, it was a wrap!
We’ve known this amazing family for many years now and their family just keeps growing into an awesomely large loving group. And seeing the youngest members grow into adults is just amazing.
Kristin & Josh, love you guys and your family. A quick sneak peek into the few fun moments where everyone did their best to bring it! xoxo, Trish
I’m pretty sure I have one of the best jobs ever. And part of that job is watching the babies I photograph as neborns growing up and watching their awesome parents love them to pieces. I photographed little Beck when he was just home from the hospital and he was so adorable even then. Now he’s grown into a little boy and he’s even cuter now:). He was wearing the cutest little sweater and he’s just so well behaved and excited about all kinds of noises and new surroundings. Just great to see him as he grows and changes. He is love and a complete joy to be around. And the other total bonus was that for Angie & Link’s family shoot, we hit the colors right on! It was absolutely gorgeous in the apsens up high; so bright and colorful that it was yellow everywhere! Really was a fun afternoon with them after a crazy few days of weather.
Angie & Link, thank you so much for having me in your lives to document your lives. Love your perfect little family and I hope you enjoy this quick sneak peek from your shoot!! xoxo, Trish A while back, Angie mentioned to me that she and Link hadn’t really done wedding photos, so I really wanted to shoot just a quick couple of shots of them too:)
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!
And a little sorority sister fun at the end!
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, Trish
