BALLS FAMILY AT HOME | Layton, UT

BALLS FAMILY AT HOME | Layton, UT

BOYZ WILL BE BOYZ

As I sit here in the Jen Den, peeking at my little slice of sky, reflecting on this series of photos and what I’d like to say about it, I can’t help but feel deeply grateful for the fact that today I got to wear a short sleeve shirt and sandals (wink, wink), as it is finally, mercifully, no longer raining in my part of the state (guttural woop!).

I was in New York for the greater part of May and can count on one hand the number of days I saw sunshine, which, ironically, perfectly mirrored my temperament - seasonal affective? Perhaps. But by god, I welcome this sunshine something fierce.

Hanging out with this rambunctious family of five last fall was invigorating, entertaining, and chaotic - my preferred state of creation where cognitive thought and premeditation go right out the window.

The deepest compliment I can ever receive from a client is ‘It’s just US’.

With that being said, this is them. Xo

Every once in awhile someone comes along and concretely changes the course of your life.  For me, it was this big-hearted woman.  She knows it, but I could never tell her enough times how glad I am that our paths crossed.

Wanting to document her new family dynamic, she invited me into her cozily chic, Sugarhood home and let me witness the incredible bond between her and her boy.  Cue heartstring tugs.  Xxo

The absolute *best* part about shooting kids?  Personality.  Some of my greatest photos aren't ones that I dreamt up, pre-meditated, or planned - they're ones that simply emerged from the moment.  And at those times, I thank god I've been blessed with wicked fast reflexes and a keen eye.

Sailor and Goldie (and mom and dad) couldn't have given me more in terms of personality, and I can already see them 50 years down the road, flipping through these photos and having a laugh remembering the good 'ol days. Xxo

'It's time to come inside!'....cue meltdown.  I 100% feel you little dude. As kids that grew up on three acres of property, filling our days (and sometimes nights) with the outside air and living in our imaginary worlds was the norm - which meant that the phrase 'it's time to come in' was *death*, and we dreaded it every evening.

Specifying that they didn't want any direction at all and wanted their photos to be 100% real life, here is an authentic glimpse into the life of a one year old named Aiden. Xxo

WE'RE TOO OLD FOR PHOTOS - SAID NO ONE EVER

Parents: when your kids are grown, you should still get family photos done. 

Though the expressions of love will have evolved from snuggles, tickles, and kisses, to conversing, hugs, and (loving) teasing, photos representing your unique family bonds are still just as important because guess what, before you know it your cubs will be grown and itching to leave the den.

With the oldest heading off to college, this session was tinged with a deeper sense of togetherness that was incredibly palpable,  and I was floored by this family’s intelligence, kindness, and heartwarming 'ness'.

Privy to their incredible friendship - a rarity amongst older families - this session holds a special place in my heart. Xo

See 'before + after' photos of the design and print project I was commissioned for, below.

To freshen up the outdated framed canvas images around the house (and spruce up a few places begging for some wall art) I settled on a combination of bamboo mounts, custom frames, and a stunning acrylic piece.

See the before + afters below:
