My photography business grew from a desire to learn how to take incredible portraits of my babies and toddlers, while also capturing the cute and sweet moments of their childhood. Both types of images are such a treasure to me now which is why my photography style has evolved into what it is today - family portraits with candid moments mixed in to capture personalities and family relationships

Utah Family Photography at Saltair

Uncategorized

April 16, 2021

back to blog

This family had a son leaving Utah on a mission to Alaska so it was important to get a family picture taken since they wouldn’t all be together again for a couple of years. They’d done mountain sessions in the past so we did Saltair for a change. The white building wall, and the white expanse with the unobstructed big blue sky is a gorgeous backdrop for pictures. These sessions tend to be long since theres a lot of walking if you want to go to the water, plus for this shoot there were¬†7 kids + 1 recent addition for individuals. We had to go early in case there was traffic downtown so I started at the building wall, since the sun is a little higher than I’d like when we first got there. It’s hard to leave when the light is at it’s prettiest though, even if I already have everything I need. So the family stayed and hung out together while the sun was setting. I was slow walking back since I took pictures along the way, which gave their missionary time to run back to the car and change and grab his Alaska flag for a few missionary photos at the end.

When you dress your family, it’s important to consider your location. After looking at Saltair sessions, this mom decided to change her colors. She liked the lighter colors against the flats rather than a stark contrast and planned accordingly. There’s not one right or wrong way to dress for this spot, you just need to figure out what you like, and go with that. My What to Wear Guide can help with other things, but don’t forget to think about your spot and how it will fit with what you’re wearing.

For the most part everyone was happy and had a great time. Occasionally at a shoot, younger kids can shed a few tears, and that’s okay. I used that moment as an opportunity for the other siblings to cheer him up and we captured some sweet moments and big laughing smiles as a result. Hiring a photographer that can direct, and redirect is so important because life will usually throw you a few curve balls, even during a family photo shoot.
