Hi! Welcome to my blog...

I'm Kristi and I am a natural light, lifestyle photographer based out of Salt Lake City, Utah. I have studied photography at the University of Utah and I absolutely LOVE documenting the precious times in people's lives while adding an artistic spin to each image. I always want to hear what you think so please feel free to leave a comment. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you check up often!

First of all, let me just say the I absolutely LOVE everything about this session. I was warned at the beginning that the boys were a little shy. But, after I layed down some smack talk about Utah beating BYU's football team to one of the boys and tried out some reverse psychology to get some real smiles from the other, they were awesome. Infact, the whole family was so fantastic that I had a really hard time narrowing down my favorites. So, this is a large post because that is just what has to happen when I like them all.

I don't know what it is but something about the photo below just makes me happy.

Yes, I know this next image is a little out of focus BUT I just love their expressions. So, I had to share it.

While we were taking a family portrait in this wheat field the boys spotted a praying mantis and it totally consumed their attention. I tried to catch it for them but wussed out as soon as I touched it. Finally, after some big brother encouragement, they caught it! Look how proud he is of his capture.

These two have such different looks but once you put their gorgeous eyes together you can definitely tell they are brothers. Look at those big hazel eyes, exactly the same color.

So, right now I am working on processing some really amazing photo sessions. They aren't complete yet but I wanted to share a little sneak peak for each of these cute families. More to come soon...
