Allison and Twitch Family | Maternity Shoot | Jessica Janae

I was so pumped when I got a message from Allison on Instagram asking about family photos! Not only have I been obsessed with So You Think You Can Dance since I was 16, but I mean look at them!! They are a photographers dream couple!

Allison and Twitch were in Utah visiting family so we took advantage of the snow covered mountains to shoot in.

These were shot at Tibble Fork which I had never shot at in the winter. There is usually a massive blue lake right in the center, but seeing as it was freezing cold dead of winter the whole thing was frozen over and covered in snow. There were lots of people walking across the lake in snow shoes so we decided to go out to get some shots. Lucky and not luckily I decided to go first to make sure the cute pregnant lady didn’t fall in if the ice was too thin. To my surprise I happened to step in the one bloody spot that was too thin, my foot sank right through… All the way up past my thigh! I was holding my cameras high above my head incase I fell in any further and also trying to get my leg free. I managed to pull myself out most of the way except my foot. I tugged so hard that my boot came off. Some how I was able to jam my arm in and grab the boot before it went too far under. This all happened so fast that by the time Twitch came running over I was out. But my jeans from waist down were sopping ice cold wet. hahaha. We had only been shooting for about 15 minutes up to this point. So I went on for another 30 min like that. Worth it!

I swear that when I shoot, all elements fail to effect me. The heat doesn’t bother me, the cold, the wind, the snow etc. But the second I stop shooting I begin to feel it all.

So anyways Ive made peace with it.  That my first shoot with the beautiful talented Allison and Twitch was also my first time falling into a frozen lake.

enjoy the pretty photos xoxo

Amber Clark Maternity shoot | Salt Lake City, Utah | Maternity photography

This beautiful momma gave birth to her chubby cute son at  3:30am this morning and I was lucky enough to be there 🙂

So I thought it was about time to post her super gorgeous maternity shoot!

Amber rocked at being pregnant and she’s gonna rock at being a mommy.

-side note- the second half of this shoot as gorgeous as it looks was quite painful for all of us to shoot seeing as there were insane amounts of bugs attacking us. literally in our mouths and noses and ears and hair haha it was insane.

Lakeside Maternity Shoot- National Maternity photographer

Rachel is probably one of the most stunning women I’ve ever seen. Her face is so perfect it almost looks unreal. Throughout the whole shoot I kept saying how she looked like a fairy or some ethereal creature from Lord of the Rings. haha.. Hopefully she took that as a compliment cuz thats how it was meant.

We shot on the shore of the lake and then went and drove around until we found this perfect lush green spot that I couldn’t pass up. The sun was so low and the light looked  hazy and thick..It was just perfect.

Cant wait to see your beautiful child!!!

Amanda + Jared Maternity session

Amanda is one of my muses.. she is an absolutely stunning human being. Inside and out she just glows. So being pregnant with a little spirit just adds to that of course. Her and Jared are so funny together, just perfect for each other  I cant wait to meet their baby, I know it will be hilarious and beautiful just like them.

We shot these up a canyon in Utah on a warm evening. everyone stared at them cuz they’re breathtaking to look at especially out in the forrest all dressed up like that. We made an impromptu little flower crown out of some blossoms that just added to much to the look. The hazy light, her white dress, the blossoms.. I could’ve shot all day.
