Provo Family Photography: First Photoshoot of 2016 at the Provo City Library!



This is my cousin Kevin's family from Arizona. After Christmas last year we all went to Utah to attend my cousin's wedding, Kevin's sister. While in Utah, they asked me to take their family pictures and I said of course! The only problem, it was 20 degrees outside! Brrr. Thankfully, Emily, my cousin (in law), searched around and found the Provo City Library! It has these beautiful tall windows that let in beautiful light, so we chased the light and produced these pictures!

There are basically two areas in the library, part of the older library with more traditional and antique wood, and the newer part, with more modern, streamlined construction and lines. It was a challenge because there were at least three other families getting their photos done at that time, ha, so we were constantly moving around each other, but it all worked out. Julia, their little girl, is absolutely darling. Can you get enough of her eyes? They were just begging me to take a closeup of them, so amazing.

Throwback to my First Family Photoshoot! (From 2010)

Throwback to my very first family photoshoot in 2010! I remember feeling nervous when Jen asked me if I had ever considered doing a family photoshoot. I agreed to do it and I'm glad I did! I mean, look at these incredibly photogenic subjects; photographing them was so easy. They were all so patient with me--the shoot lasted two hours (with two kids!) at the Camarillo Ranch House one afternoon. The post-photoshoot work took a longer time than I had anticipated--I was apparently obsessed with creative cropping, blurry backgrounds, and some artsy filters back then! =} But thankfully we got to capture some lovely moments, and though if I could go back in time I would have used the flash more strategically, or sharpened the images a little more, I will always be grateful for them and their willingness to give me a chance! Thank you Johnson family!
