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

Interested in a family session at home?

NIELSEN FAMILY AT HOME | Salt Lake City, Ut

Pool time in the middle of winter?  Yes please.  As someone who thrives on life in the sun and summer activities, these long dark nights of January have always been a bit of a challenge for me.  How do I make it through?  Snowboarding, puzzles, and loooots of Netflix.

When a session includes a specific activity that speaks to the character of the family I get a little thrill at imagining the potency the images will have 30 years down the road. 

Will the family always live in this house with a pool?  Maybe, maybe not, but knowing the memories will live on outside of the kids hearts and give them something concrete to look back on makes these types of sessions all the more satisfactory.  Xxo

It is a personal goal of mine to invent a catchphrase that the public uses on an everyday basis.  To know people that have already accomplished that on a massive scale, is dope.  If you've been living under a rock and have never seen the genius that is Napoleon Dynamite I feel sorry for you, but for those of you that have seen it, you have these two to thank for their incredibly hilarious (quotable) film.

Beyond their professional achievements lies their familial creation which they wanted authentically and organically documented.  Tramp sesh?  Sure.  Karaoke sing-a-along?  Done.  Ball pit?  Why not?  I'd say we memorialized family time at it's finest.  Xxo

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
