Caperton Family

Hello all

Meet the Caperton family.  When I work with a client for the first time and they show up to their shoot with a bag of cinnamon chip bread and jam for me, I know right away we are gonna get along.  It took us all about 10 minutes and 1 play of Uptown Funk before this session got really comfortable and really fun.  Those teenagers relaxed, Mom and Dad let loose and laughed, and baby girl did her thang.  It truly was so much fun to photograph them in this beautiful location, with amazing color and light.  The whole session just filled me.  Hope it does the same for you.

I love my job.  So much.

Light and Life Workshop


I am SO thrilled to announce this years Summer Workshop.  Light & Life.

This year I wanted to really focus on the things I do best.  Finding the light and creating life and emotion in my images.  I want my clients to feel something when they look at their images.  It’s something that bring me so much satisfaction and joy to know that I have created something that can carry so much feeling for my clients.  This is what I would like to teach.

The workshop will take place on August 29th in Salt Lake City, Utah.  It will be a half day course from about 3-10pm.  Why so late??  Just look at the picture above.  I want to teach you how to use that amazing setting sun.  We will also be shooting in my natural light studio in downtown SLC to work on interacting with clients to help them feel comfortable in front of the camera, allowing you to capture true emotion.  We will shoot, we will eat, we will learn, we will laugh and it WILL be a good time.  Guaranteed.

Email me via the CONTACT tab to get on the pre-registration email list.  You will be the first to know all the details and when registration opens.

Hope I see you there.

Lochlyn – 1 year


A girl only gets to turn 1 once and little miss Lochlyn did it up right.  She was one of the best little toddlers I have ever shot.  She was so happy and completely cooperative the whole time, which is SO abnormal.  I’m used to some major melting down at this age, so to have such a happy camper for the whole hour was just bliss.

Happy Birthday pretty lady.

Presli – Baptism

I am just realizing that I have never posted a Baptism session before.  Ever.  I shoot them all the time and LOVE them but for some reason they never make it here.  That needs to change.

This is Presli.  She is an absolute doll.  She lives nearby and attends my same church ward where I have been serving in the Primary so I’ve been fortunate to get to know her a little bit and have been so impressed with her from day 1.  She is nothing but sweet, so smart and humble, just a keeper in every way.  Plus look at her… honestly, she was so easy to photograph it was unreal.  A true beauty inside and out.   It was a short mini session at my studio but I loved the beautiful simplicity of all white everything, letting her shine.

Happy Baptism little lady

Thomas Family – Lifestyle newborn

I’m so happy to share this beautiful lifestyle session with you all!  I have felt so privileged to get to work with this lovely family for maternity, birth story and finally newborn session.  It was just amazing to be a part of each of these incredibly important and personal events for this family and they have been nothing but a dream to work with.

I had just a little bit of hesitation in me when Momma wanted to wait and do their newborn session when baby Maddie was a couple of months old.  I normally photograph babes in the first 2 weeks of life so I was a bit unsure of how it would go with a bit older baby.  Clearly things went very well.  I actually loved it.  I love love a fresh, tiny, sleepy newborn, but there were things I absolutely loved about this babe at almost 3 months old.  She has a bit of chub, was sleepy for the first little bit, then spunked up, opened up those darling eyes, cooed, smiled, and was just all around darling for her session.  The light and colors were soft, simple and beautiful, and that nursery… to die for.  I love shooting in my studio, always will, and it’s a great option for people that just don’t want to shoot in their home, but there is something a little extra special about photographing your family in your home.  It’s so real and so comfortable and it never gets old.
