Family Pictures | Utah Family Photography

The first couple of pictures are actually from a picnic we went to. Ethan is so adorable, and he was just loving those bubbles! The rest of the pictures were taken at the Riverwoods in Provo. It is a great location for pictures, especially given the renovations they've done there recently. There are a lot of great textures and colors for back drops, plenty of seats, lots of room, and it is easy and fun.

Monique is one of my best friends in the world! She's probably the first friend I made when I came back from my mission, as we sat next to each other in band. Later, we discovered that she already knew all of my best friends, and so we quickly became part of the same circles, so between that and several years of band, we've stayed friends. Well, now her super smart husband, Jason, is going to MIT, so they're off to Boston. We did one last family shoot with them before they left.

Recently, my girlfriend's family had a reunion, so we got some pictures outside the Provo Temple. It was so neat to see all of the family there, to have all of the sibling and their family in the temple at the same time. It was quite awesome, and very moving for me.

Afterwards, Kirsten and I experimented with my new lens, a Nikkor 85mm 1.4. Loving it so far!

We also went over to Bridal Veil falls, which is roaring right now! So much rain has made for lots of water coming off the mountain.
