haley in the orchard - utah family photographer

this is haley--- who just so happens to be my cute sister. she's gonna be a sophomore next year and a vykelle {viewmont's dancers} so we decided to do a fun summer session to help her remember this fun time in her life. here are some of my favorites of this cute girl.


i do- {elsa & brian} - utah wedding photographer

JD's cousin, Elsa, married her sweetheart last weekend in the SLC temple. It was such a beautiful day! I love love love weddings... everything about them. I love seeing the new couple together-- their love is so new and fresh. It always reminds me of why I fell in love with my hubby in the first place. Newlywed love is just something that's so sweet! And of course over time you love them for SO many different reasons... but the twitterpaited love is way more fun to photograph:) Their luncheon was at the Joseph Smith Memorial and reception was at the Bungalow in Pleasant Grove. Everything was so classy and elegant--- perfect for Elsa's big day in my opinion.


Birch Fam in the Orchard - utah family photographer

I seriously had the hardest time getting rid of photos from this session.... so Steph is gonna end up with t.o.n.s. oh well! I absolutely love how these turned out. Brynlee & Broxton have SO much personality and I think we were able to catch that in these, which is always something I try to do. And can you get enough of those baby blues?! Look at Mama Steph's... these are the real deal--- no photoshopping necessary for these bad boys. It's no wonder these kids are so dang cute! Look at their parents... ahh--- thanks for the fun time Birch fam! {the whole time I was editing these.... Jonnie kept saying--- Look! there's my friends! haha so cute}
