A very special day – South Jordan Utah Family Photographer

There are some things in life that really tug at the heart strings.  This is one of those.  It was my privilege to capture this precious time when two beautiful girls were united with their ‘forever family’.

My favorite images are almost always those that just ‘happen.’  I absolutely love to capture families as they are.  No staging needed.

I was told that Mom and Dad often find themselves in this position, each holding a baby.  And I couldn’t help imagining a sort-of ‘American Gothic’ take on the whole thing.  So here it is (above):

Funny photos child pictures Salt Lake City UTThis little guy had me laughing on more than one occasion.  At one point he wanted a “hair picture” of the top of his head.  So we went with it and after I laughed about taking his “hair picture” he looked up smiling and gave me this (on the bottom left).  Notice how the shot began (top right).

We put the kids in position for this nice close up in front of the Salt Lake Temple and the girls just wouldn’t have it.  One in particular could not be consoled.  And we tried various means of bringing a smile to her face.  Silly sounds.  Me jumping around looking ridiculous.  Mom even took off her own necklace to offer a distraction but to no avail.  So I tried the next best thing… Tell ‘everyone’ to cry!
