Stoddard Family | Utah Summer Family Photography

The longer I am a photographer, the more all my clients become this interweaved group of people that I love.

Jacki was one of my brides and one of my favorite friends. Now Jacki owns Foil & Ink  which is one of our favorite vendors. Jacki is also the sister in law of Haley. Haley was a bride and is now one of my favorite mommies. Such a small world.

It was such an honor to have Haley and her sweet family in front of my camera again. I started loving these two and am so thankful that they have allowed me tag along and to now say that I love these three. They are so sweet and adoring of one another. That evidence is easily seen in the imagery we were able to capture. Speaking of sweet, Haley is known to bring me a cookie (which is a sure way to win over my heart- just in case you were ever wondering).

I absolutely loved the outfits in this session, the blues complimented the greens so well, and each article of clothing is the absolute definition of perfection. I love the delicate feel. I also love that the Stoddards wanted to incorporate their sweet pup in their session. Everyly’s sweet interaction with her doggy made me want to counter the term, “man’s best friend,” with “girl’s best friend.”  She is such a sweet little girl with two out of this world amazing parents that easily cherish every single thing about her.

Once again Haley’s makeup was absolutely gorgeous, I love how perfectly it complimented the natural beauty of her face- which is a staple of the brand she was wearing which is Maskcara.

All in all it is evident that the joy and happiness this beautiful family exhibits is the genuine and real deal. It’s so refreshing to be able to be reminded that happiness and love are all around us. Sometimes we have to look for it and sometimes we just get to witness it.

Enjoy the Stoddard Family!

#prayforsantefe. Each time I see one of these, because for some unimaginable reason these are becoming more and more common in our world, my heart just drops. I posted on my Facebook page awhile ago and share the same thought here. It’s not about politics. It’s not about guns. It’s about keeping our kids safe. We have to make a change. 💛 #schoolsafety
PHOTOGRAPHY FRIENDS!!! Have you ever found yourself looking for that place? The place where you feel like you belong? The place where people
I sat at the ball field tonight with tears in my eyes. I could barely keep them from streaming down my face. I sat there watching my boy. My sweet, wonderful, amazing boy. I watched tonight the power of a good coach and the effect they can have on a player. Last year this kid was so excited to play baseball, to be done with tball, to be in the same league as his brother. His excitement bubbled over, but didn’t last long. Yelling, criticism, and belittling soon crushed all that excitement. I watched in one season a boy who loved a sport go in the complete opposite direction, never wanting to play again. But we pushed him, and bargained with him, and encouraged him to give it one more shot. And tonight, I watched that little excited boy come back to life. All because of a good coach. A coach who cares. A coach who encourages. A coach who realizes that instilling a love for the game is what is most important. I watched a boy who’s light had totally gone out be on fire. A double. Another double. He did so well and most importantly he had fun and he felt important. I am so grateful for his new coach who I’m sure has no idea the impact he is having on this little shy boy and how much it means to this mommas heart. #coach #baseball #forloveofthegame

The end is the best part 💋💋 #nosound #ivystradesecrets
We are now almost exclusively having our groceries delivered or picked up 🙌🏻 I forgot to click the “don’t replace” button and these minty delights replaced my usual cookie order. They are seriously so good 🍪 I asked my kids what we should have for dinner tonight and everyone yelled “choose your own adventure” to which I felt a big #momwin. So while they’re enjoying nachos, mac & cheese, and chicken nuggets...I’m sitting here eating cookies for dinner. So that’s my Monday night in a nutshell, how’s yours going?
Borrowed this from a friend 😂😂😂 hope you’re all enjoying the concert! @crewandco #superbowl @justintimberlake #concert

It’s so awesome when my shower days line up with my social calendar! 🙌🏻 don’t mind the big zit on my forehead. It happens to us all.
Losing my mind just a little bit. This guy who used to be the calm, the peacemaker, the lost in thought, the daydreamer, the quiet in our family is now so LOUD 🙉 I don’t know what happened but it’s like one day he woke up and the switch had flipped and now he is all NOISE. He’s even getting in trouble at school for too much talking to his neighbors...it’s like we are living in an alternate universe. I need my calm boy back. He’s the only peace I had in this busy life. Hopefully all this LOUD is just a phase 🤞🏻

Took this girl to @ultabeauty tonight and this was pretty much her the whole time! She acts just like a normal kid would in a candy store 🍭The girl loves makeup!!! She totally bamboozled me with her cuteness while we were there and walked out with a haul of chapsticks and nail polish. 💅🏻💄it’s moments like this (and all her level ten bossiness) that make me 110% sure she’s a mini-me.
When your birthday is “after Christmas” you pretty much start getting excited the second you see any sign of Christmas anywhere. This gal has been counting down for weeks and her big day is here...what she wasn’t counting on was the stomach flu 🤢😢 Looks like instead of party time we are going to be having snuggle time. #birthdaygirl #biggirl #nofair
