This is Susan. Well, Susan is not really her name but I was forced to change it because she has the same name as my husband and with her hanging out with my little sister our lives are just getting too complicated. There are too many Jamie’s for all of us to keep track of two different Jamies. ¬†So, this is Susan. She is very pretty. ūüėÄ

We went out last week to get some senior photos taken to kick of her senior year of high school. Don’t worry you will see a lot more of her in the next several months.

Sara & Joe got married on Jamie & my seven year anniversary. It was kind of fun to go to another wedding on our anniversary. Somehow that has never happened before.

Sara & Joe are the kind of couple that can make anyone feel instantly welcome and included. When I first met them I was driving from place to place in Farmington meeting with a bunch of potential brides, answering questions, and signing contracts. By the time I was headed to Sara’s house my phone was dead and I was lost. Jamie had to call Sara, whom he had never met, and try to get directions from her so he could message my iPad and tell me where to go. It was kind of a mess. But, Sara was so stinkin’ nice about it. She was kind to Jamie and she was just excited that I finally found her house. It only took me three tries.

Since then I have been so excited about this wedding. These two are genuinely good people. And their super packed ceremony just proved that. People stood in the hallway because they ran out of room in the chapel, but they stayed, drying their happy tears because this couple meant to much to them. During the reception even more people showed up and their marcha was almost too big to fit on the dance floor. Everyone wanted to be a part of their wedding.

I am so happy that Jamie and I got to spend our anniversary with them.

Oh yeah, Sara made the flower girl’s (her daughter) dress. How adorable is that?!

So, how cute is this little family?

Michaela actually won a free session from me at the Girls Night Out Expo in December, she walked away with a killing! Anyway, we finally got a chance to cash her session in last week while I was up north.

My schedule got a little crazy there at the end but she was so nice and sweet and wonderful and we were able to make everything work out for her. And I love these photos!

Also, her little boy is only a few days younger than mine so it was about time they met in real life. Tayten is much better at sharing than Chevy is. We are working on it.

Also, I know it is practically midnight and I am barely getting these up. It has been a long day and I had three more sessions I had to do that cannot be shared right now but I still had to get previews done for the brides. But, the important thing is I made it with 21 minutes to spare. Yay me!

Jen & James are almost married. The wedding is right around the corner. But, since I was already booked on their wedding day we got together before the wedding to take a bunch of formals for them. Honestly, this is my favorite way to take formal pictures. It is relaxing and fun and you have so many amazing pictures.

You might remember Jen & James from their engagement session weeks ago. Well, now you get to see them all ready to be married for time and all eternity. I love it. And I love Red Butte Gardens. Thanks for taking me along guys!
