This family session is one that was REALLY hard not to post all 300 plus images from this shoot. First off we went to the Little Sahara Desert in Nephi. A place that I’ve always wanted to shoot at!! This place was more than I had ever imagined. I mean come on, look at the photos below! I am so happy with them and I want to take my families pictures there. The only problem, it’s a 1 hour and 15-minute drive from my house. It’s hard enough to even get my husband to do photos but then to add the drive time, impossible! Haha! I love my husband but photo’s aren’t his thang. Actually driving long distance for a 1-hour event isn’t his thing ever. You know, I get it. OK maybe I don’t. ha! I’m all about doing anything for beautiful photos that I get to hang up in my house!
But enough about the AMAZING location let’s just talk about the Stucki family for a minute. I mean aren’t they just to die for!!!! Cortney has THE cutest style and their kids, gah! Everyone is so well put together it made my heart sing. I photographed Cortney and just her kids many years ago. In fact, I would be pretty embarrassed to even post them. Not because of them, they were SUPER stylish and adorable, but because I was still working on my brand. I don’t even know if that is the right world to explain it. I felt like back that I had a good thing going, but every year I feel like I get better and better at my skill. I love that but it also causes me to cringe looking back at previous session, especially when they are from many years back. This time I feel like I was a lot more in my element. I just loved this session.
Another aspect I wanted to mention about this session. THERE IS NO RECEPTION IN THE DESERT!!! Talk about giving me high blood pressure. I was freaking out that I would miss them. The good news, I didn’t miss them and we found each other. I think in the future I would drive with them or meet somewhere that has reception and then drive together to the location. You live and learn, right? This session was a learning one for sure, in the phone department. ;)
