“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.” ~John Muir

I was in Utah a few days back and I had a great time at the Click Away photography conference! I went with my friend Brianne, who I hadn’t seen since high school. We had a great time in classes, we learned a lot and caught up with each other. We were inspired by the amazing group of women (photo-moms from all over the world) who were teaching there. I spent one evening meeting Brianne’s gorgeous family and taking pictures of them in gorgeous Utah! It was such a refreshing kind of session for me. We decided to just have fun and let the kids be themselves. And the scene was …perfection. Here are my faves:

Massey Family

“Family time is sacred time and should be protected & respected.” ~Boyd K. Packer

Like most families, it had been a while since the Massey’s had a family picture, so it was time. The challenge when you have kids that have moved out is trying to find a time when they are all together, but the planets aligned last month and we got some great pictures that will be treasured!

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That’s why we call it the present” ~A.A. Milne

Speaking of gifts, I have had the pleasure of photographing this family for a few years and it is just such a blessing to be able to see them over the seasons and watching these cute boys grow! The Geroski’s are a great family, and I’m excited to show you their mini session pictures today! (The vintage sofa in used for this session was refinished by Shades of Blue Interiors and is available to area photographers for rent!)
