Horses. They are one of the most precious gifts from God. They’ll heal a broken heart and calm your soul.

Sydney Gilliland, Farmington High School | Utah Senior Portraits

Sydney graduated from Farmington High School last year. I was so excited to photograph her because I photographed her older brother (see his amazing session here) and I knew this family has style.

Bringing your hot red prom dress to photograph downtown is ALWAYS a good idea.

Ashton Hammock, The Waterford School | Mountain Meadow

Is there anything more magical than a mountain meadow? With Ashton in front of the lens, I would argue no way! She graduated from The Waterford School, Pandemic Class of 2020.

We got a touch of desert sage plus a touch of mountain grasses.

We found a little crevice in the mountain that looked like desert. It went perfectly with this amazing jean jumper.

Gage, North Sevier High School | Utah Senior Portraits

Gage came all the way from North Sevier High School. And you know what’s crazy? They booked me on a referral, and then once we met and got to talking, we realized that our families are closely connected! I moved away from Salina when I was only 6 years old, so I didn’t know Gage or his mom growing up. But it was so lovely to meet them and realize, yet again, that this world is itty bitty!

We had so much fun with his snowboarding images.

There is something so magical about the soft light that streams through an orchard. The ripe red apples are the perfect detail.

I’m a huge fan of these images in the tunnel. They recently painted a loud, colorful mural all over the walls, so it’s no longer a location option. Such a bummer!
