Lysa is a great friend from high school. We did ballroom dance together and I have a ton of awesome memories with her and our team. I was excited when she asked me to take her family pictures so we could catch up and I could meet her family. If you aren’t familiar with our little town, Idaho Falls often has a lot of wind. A lot. This can present quite the challenge for photography sessions. The Swain family took on the wind like pros however, and we laughed the whole time while almost getting blown away.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you wonderful moms. We wouldn’t be here without you. To my own mom, thank you for everything you have done for me. From giving me life, to being my nurse, my cheerleader, my supporter, my school project partner; you have done it all. You have, and always will be, there for me and I am happy to call you my mom. To my mother-in-law, thank you for being a great mom and friend to my wife. You raised an amazing daughter. Which brings me to Brandi. Thank you for being the most incredible mother I could ever imagine for my own child. Jaedyn loves you more than anything in the WHOLE WORLD and I have no doubt you will always be her best friend. You never hesitate to jump out of bed at the first sound of a whimper or dive to catch her before she falls. You sing and cheer when you first get her up in the morning and when you lay her to bed at night. Jaedyn is such a happy and energetic little girl and I have no doubt that this is because of the love and excitement you show to her everyday. It is clear to see the joy you bring to her. Jaedyn is so lucky to have you. I am lucky to have you.

Maddie is the younger sister of one of my oldest and best friends growing up. Madison (as she loves me to call her 🙂 ) is really like a little sister to me. I was so excited when she asked me to take her pictures for her upcoming graduation from Utah State ( Aka the best school ever). It seems like like a couple years ago, I was taking her senior pictures for graduating from high school. It was fun to get together and catch up on life! I am so excited to see all the wonderful things she does with her dietatics degree, and life after school!
I thought I (Brandi) would write this blog post today since Camille is one of my very best friends. We have been friends for 9 years, and we have done many photoshoots together before. However, this has got to be my favorite! First off, she is carrying my daughter’s future husband and secondly she is the most goregous pregnant women ever! I mean look at her! She makes being pregnant look easy. The Capital building in Salt Lake was a perfect backdrop for her pictures. I am in love the blossoms on the trees there! Utah has the most beautiful locations to photograph. I am looking forward to going back to Utah in the next few weeks to meet her little boy!
Hali is a friend of mine from Utah State. We both worked at the USU Campus Store. I was so honored when she asked me to photograph her wedding. The Ogden LDS Temple has become one of my favorite locations for wedding since it was redone a few years back. The grounds and the temple itself are gorgeous and I love that it is surrounded by the city. That night they had a reception at the Copper Nickel in Ogden, Utah. I am in love with this venue! Check out the shoots below to see how beautifully they decorated it. Not to mention, the dance party was a blast.
