This year was the firs year that I had the opportunity to do outdoor Christmas Tree Farm photos. It was so fun and Mr. & Mrs. Powell of Powell Tree Farms were so wonderfully sweet to everyone. No only do they grow and sell Christmas trees, Mr. Powell makes these one of a kind wooden seasonal characters. (shown) In the summer months the Powell family makes honey. My kids were able to go and see how he makes honey in his garage. It was so fun.
I had 8 families take the opportunity to goto the tree farm this year. They had so much fun. The kids were able to run around and I had several props for them to pose on or next to. The first day was very cold but we had lots of snow which only added to the natural beauty of the photos.
This Cheeky little monkey was so adorable for her birthday Cake Smash. She screamed a lot in full joy through most of her session. She was fast and crawling everywhere. Her Mom was getting a good work out that morning trying to catch her and put her back! It was so fun! When I have movers in my studio I put them up on a large ottoman and have Mom and Dad sit right next to them for safety. This way they don't go very far! (hopefully!) Birthday girl was unsure of her cake made by Fantastic Events but loved the teddy bear. She had fun and we got some excellent expressions for memories of her first Birthday. Enjoy!

YES! It's a Trailer Park Wedding! These two people have finally found each other after several children and previous relationships. To have the opportunity to finally find the one true love of your life is a blessing. Sometimes it takes a second round. These two wanted to celebrate together with family and friends and not make a big deal about it. They just wanted to share their love with everyone so they decided to do it in a location where they spend so much time with the ones they love. Lucky for me the park had a beautiful old barn out in the field to give some gorgeous backgrounds to their photos. There was also a beautiful beach to add to their collection of natural wedding photos. Enjoy!
This gorgeous Momma of soon to be FOUR babies was happy to capture these last moments of her pregnancy with me. I think this maybe her last baby but we never know! LOL! This Momma is not only beautiful on the outside but inside too. I am sure that you can see it in her eyes! We decided to goto Heber Downs the local conservation area. It was the middle of the day but the beaming sunshine didn't stop any part of this session. It is always a challenge as a photographer in the full afternoon sun but this location allowed us to capture just enough light in the shady areas to get wonderful photos for her maternity session. Enjoy!
This is Momma's second baby. This little munchkin was so squiggly! The few poses I got were miracles! Any kind of movement that I made and baby was wide awake. This babes only wanted to be in Momma's arms the entire time. We persisted and got several wonderful photos of this little one and Momma! Enjoy!
