Hubbard family

The perfect evening in the perfect location with the perfect family and perfect light.

Magic.

Patten family in home

You know the Pattens by now… ha!

They are dear friends and Erica pretty much lets me to whatever I want so I always love what we create working together.  I use the word “working” lightly here too.  Because this session in particular, was much more a “come hang out with us and play and eat cookies and oh take some pictures maybe?”.  It was fantastic.  I LOVE her little tribe of girls and the crazy love and lets face it, amazing style in their home.   Their home is filled with joy, and laughing and tears and whining and fights and more laughing and more joy and it’s the kind of home and the kind of people that really fill you up, really make you want to live better, live with more fun and more joy and less worry.   There was little to no directing here, and that’s really how I like it.  I wanted it to be real.  What is it really like in their home?  It’s like this… really.

Hennefer Family

Few places in the state beat this location in the Spring for me.  These lush, green rolling hills make me feel like I’m sitting in the Sound of Music.  Then add a family like this to the mix and it’s straight up magical.

Those sisters stole my heart in about 3 seconds.  Their sweetness together and the way they cared for their baby brother were such an absolute joy to watch.  The whole family dynamic was so light and easy and made for an effortless, beautiful session.  Loved every single minute.  Thanks Hennefer fam!

Jarrett family newborn session

All kinds of ooohhhs and aaahhhhs ahead folks.  This newborn family session was out of a dream.  Their sweet new baby boy was born premature at just 29 weeks gestation and fought for many long, hard weeks in the NICU but is now thriving and it’s such a beautiful miracle to see and an honor to photograph.

Light and Life Workshop

Welcome friends to Light and Life!  

I look forward to this from the minute the previous workshop wraps up.  I love teaching, I love working with other photographers, I love getting to know new people in my field, I love learning from young growing together.

I have a fantastic workshop shaping up this year.  Still focusing on the same things as years past, but adding some great new information and wonderful sponsors and vendors.

At Light and Life we focus heavily on working with natural light in all it’s forms.  I want my attendees to feel confident walking into just about any type of light, knowing it’s strengths and weaknesses and being able to work it in the best way possible.  We also focus a lot on how to interact with your clients to make them feel comfortable and be able to truly be themselves and let the connections and emotions between families really shine in your images.  We will also work on composition and creating interest with your work, how to get skin looking it’s best, post processing and lots more.

This will be a full day workshop on May 7th, hosted at my brand new studio in Bountiful Utah, White Space Studios (@whitespacestudios on Instagram).  We will be doing two beautiful shoots, one in studio and one outdoors to make sure we are able to work with different types of light.  We will have lunch or dinner depending on the time and have plenty of time for Q&A and getting to know each other.  

There will be a max of 15 attendees to ensure it isn’t over crowded.  Total cost for the workshop is $425.  A $100 deposit is due at booking to reserve your seat.  Your deposit can be made here  https://squareup.com/market/tracy-layne-portraits/light-and-life-deposit 

 This deposit is non-refundable and I’m telling you, you don’t want to miss out on this anyway.  

 Oh and did I mention that every attendee will be receiving a FREE ALL ACCESS hour at White Space Studios to start dipping your toes into the glorious world of studio work, special discounts/offers from our fabulous vendors and a little something something from me?  

My hope is to have you leave this workshop feeling inspired and confident that you can get out there and make beautiful art in just about any situation.   You’ve got so much goodness, creativity and beauty inside you and I just want to help you bring it out.  

Hope to see you soon!
