I met Travis and Nicole when they took a childbirth class from me a few years ago. My baby was immediately drawn to Travis and was comfortable with him from the first day of class. Travis and Nicole are people that you just instantly love because they have such amazing personalities and exude happiness!

Fast forward… Travis and Nicole planned to move to Florida in May and we had talked about doing a session before they took off on their next journey! We ended up squeezing it in on the morning they were driving away from Las Vegas. It’s been fun watching them become parents and I’ve loved getting to know them while they were here in Las Vegas! Hopefully our paths will cross again one day!! Till then, we at least have Facebook! 🙂

One of my dear friends Renee reached out to me to do a very special photo session of her family and especially of her mama. When she told me the circumstances, there was no way I was not going to do this session for her. Nanny Jo was recently diagnosed with cancer and Renee wanted to capture some images of her mom and her sons with her mom before radiation started! I have known Renee since our boys were in Preschool together and have known Nanny Jo since then too and have always loved her sarcastic and kind personality!

Luckily Renee’s backyard was green and pretty for our session since it is difficult for Nanny to move around much.  We also got to play around in Renee’s flamingo garden which had me laughing so hard I was almost crying!

I absolutely love how this session turned out and want Renee and her family to know how much I cherish them and our friendship. Many happy thoughts and prayers for the road ahead.

Even though this was the first time I had met the Greusel family,  it felt as though we had already known each other.  This amazing family is full of love and hugs and we had a fantastic time taking photos up near Red Rock. I love, love, love how their portraits came out!

This love story was so much fun to capture as it was the wedding of my beautiful niece Savannah and her now husband Brandon! Savannah and Brandon came to Vegas to do their engagement photos earlier in the year and I could tell in those moments during their session that these two were meant for each other. Her eyes sparkle and his smile lights up a room when they are near each other.

Because of the crazy Utah weather, we ended up having to switch our bridal session and first look to the Capitol building as it was indoors and dry. The next morning was the wedding and the yucky weather continued as it was overcast and a very chilly spring morning in the low 40’s. For this desert girl, that is COLD!!! Savannah and Brandon were married in the Draper Utah LDS temple with their reception following at a small park near her grandparents home. It was a quaint and fun reception with cake, smores and soda pop in the bottle. Lots of dancing was to be had.

Thank you Savannah and Brandon for letting me be a part of your big day! What a beautiful wedding it was and I wish all the best for a happy future together!
