Shasta’s Engagement & Family Portraits

We had such a fun time creating these engagement portraits of Shasta and her fiancé. We did a mix of outdoor and studio portraits and some of our favorites were high contrast black & whites from the studio. I took some of the favorites and created this 9-up collage. It looked so beautiful when it was finished […]

Centenarian Portrait, Wilford Zaugg Turns 100

It’s a rare thing to do a portrait of someone that’s 100 years old. And recently I had the honor of doing a centenarian portrait of a long-time neighbor and resident of my town, Wilford Zaugg. He lives around the corner from me and I can remember him always out in his yard or farm, working hard. As […]

My Painted Portraits are Different and Magical

One of my specialized products are painted portraits. I start by creating a photographic portrait during one of our sessions, and then use that photo as a reference to create a completely different and magical painting for you. The end result is a unique piece of art that is finished as a stretched canvas in […]

Shauna’s Family Portrait Downtown

I’ve had so many great family portraits to create and deliver for Christmas, but here is one of my favorites. I’ll post more shoots after Christmas. I’ve photographed Shauna and her family many times over the years, and they are all so fun and great to work with. For this shoot we decided to do […]

Outdoor Snow Portraits of Lowe Family

Christmas is a great time for creating family portraits because it’s one of the rare times that families are all together. For lots of reasons, snow is really difficult to shoot in, but when done right it makes a great backdrop and can set a mood of warmth and love. Here is the Lowe family […]

Paul and Mandi’s Fall Family Portraits

I say this a lot, but I love photographing families and children. It is so fun to capture and create art pieces that preserve the ages, emotions, and feelings of a family at a particular time in life. And this family was a blast to work with, and the kids were so adorable and fun. […]

November Family Portrait Special

November is here, and it’s time for family portraits! Most people mean to do them and then forget until December hits, then they are trying to get in, rush their Christmas cards and orders to have everything back in time. Well beat the rush, schedule right now, and get a free session at the studio, […]

My Sister’s Family in the Leaves

It is already November, which means it’s time to get family portraits before the Christmas rush. In fact, if you want outdoor, fall portraits, we need to get them shot pronto as the leaves are almost gone in most areas and the weather is getting cold, plus all November orders get 25 free Christmas cards […]

Ollie’s Outdoor Family Portraits

I love to photograph families, and this family was so great! Their kids were adorable and we became fast friends. In fact when I saw them again at the order appointment, they were super excited. We started the session off outdoors in the studio gardens with some group portraits. Here are a few of my […]

Doug & Anna’s Family Portraits

Years ago I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding for one of my good friends. Just recently I was able to photograph his family and see how much his cute kids had grown. We shot everything here at the studio, outdoor in the studio gardens. These little girls were so fun and adorable. We […]

Past Portraits of My Grandma

My last grandma has just passed away and today is her viewing. It is interesting that relatives have been reminiscing by finding and posting pictures of her on facebook and on blogs. I myself took some personal time on the day she passed to finish some restorations that I had been working on. These portraits […]

Tara’s Family & Graduate Portraits

My friend Tara recently received a graduate degree with honors from the University of Utah. With that big moment and also because her family was all in town, we did a mix session creating some family portraits and some graduation portraits of her as well. Her family was so nice and it was great getting to […]
