Children’s Portraits // Samson Turns 2

I remember her then- redheaded and happy with a life glow around her. After 5 years together Tadd and Cat were going to welcome a little one. Meet Samson who has brought unspeakable joy to my friends! Can’t you see that glow on her? Of course she wasn’t there to be photographed but how could I resist the sweet sincere love they have for each other. Mother and son.

Jessica & Adam Collings // Family Portraits- At Home

I really like this session. I like the location, the light, the details and the people- the people were the best part, as they always are. Meet the Collings. Adam and Jessica are living deep in dust and blue prints as they remodel their home in Salt Lake’s historic Avenues neighborhood. Built by Mormon Pioneers this home is full of rich detail and some timeworn disasters that these two are sorting through and savoring. As you can see, they are expecting their first child in just a few weeks and that is one lucky little babe. Mom and Dad love each other a lot and that is evident and solid and I like it. Thank you so much to the Collings for eating treats with me, laughing and promenading me around your beautiful home.

Kalli - Part of me died inside after seeing these pictures and realizing that I will never own that house.

Mclove it.

Jessica Collings - Best photo session ever. I am in love with each photo!!

Engaged // Cassie & Bryan

Here they are. In love and ready to start their married lives together. He, an illustrator and she a special educator. Suited and happy. We were lucky enough to have wonderful weather during our session after a few days of sketchy temperatures so we cruised around the Avenues and around their apartment property in search of nice light and green things growing. Keep an eye out for their colorful wedding next month.

I’ve been trying my best to edit, process and post every session within 72 hours max and I’m doin’ it. It’s really challenging to my system and super good for my clients to see their finished product so fast.

cassie - the turnaround time for these was amaaaazing. we definitely appreciate your hard work!

Personal Portraits || Errin

Errin. She is beautiful, compassionate, driven, smart and bold. She knows what she wants, gets what she wants and is what she wants to be. You know those women right? The ones that everyone want to be friends with, be like, and be with? That is this woman and she is my best friend. I love her and I love these photographs of her. Too bad you aren’t her friend/husband and can’t see all of them in all their sexy glory right?

NOTES: I’ve been shooting landscape orientation portraits (horizontal) a lot lately. I like the feel where once I would have not felt confident enough to do it. A girl gets comfortable with good posture you know but every now and again it feels nice to spread out and do something different.

jalene taylor - These are so great, Ashley!! I love them!

cassie - damn, errin is looking fine, fabulous, and FIERCE!
