The Sweetness of Carter....who lived for 9 months in the belly of his mama

There are many reasons I'm grateful this holiday season.  One of them is my love of photography, and the enormous blessings that have come from it.  This year I've had the privilege of working with some amazing people going through hard, hard things.  I've realized that there are those whose trials are right there in front of our faces, and many many others who are enduring, silently, the enormous burdens life has brought them.  Only this year I've worked with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation a few times, and 2 families with children who have CF. An amazing family who's father and husband went through brain surgery. Sweet Jonas Coleman who had SMA....I photographed him and his family then only weeks later he passed away.  Mr. Super Spencer, 8 years old, who is undergoing a year long treatment for his cancer.  I got to photograph his fundraiser, his Make A Wish, and his family.  Another great family who's mother is undergoing chemo AGAIN, after being cancer free.
And this wonderful girl, her family, and her precious still born baby Carter.  Ashley was full term, and due in a few days with her first baby, when she went in for an ultrasound.  They couldn't find a heartbeat.  I was going to photograph the birth of Carter.  I got the phone call from her Mom telling me what had happened.  I cried all the way to the hospital just after she gave birth.  I waited on the floor in the hallway with her mom, dad, sister, brother and friend.  This family is to say the least, amazing.  Her mom is the epitome of strength, endurance, service and love.  And her Dad, he's just one big pillar of strength and then mush inside. So loving and kind.  She's a lucky girl to have so much support.
It was a truly sacred experience.  Ash loves him...she kept talking to him, kissing him and snuggling up to him.  I have no doubt he felt everyone of those sweet words she whispered and every soft touch to his tiny hands and face. Thank you Ash for letting me meet your sweetness baby.  He is watching you from heaven.

Makes me so incredibly thankful.  Thankful for all I've been given, and for all of you who have made my year so meaningful.  Thank you.

Ash, and Carter. And Carter with the hands of both of his parents.


Ashleys Dad.  What a tender and sacred moment.  I feel so blessed to have captured that moment in time forever.  It brings me right back to how I felt in that room at that moment.

I'm always happy to donate my photography services for situations like this.  I'm also a part of a group called Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep who does this as well.  I'm also always willing to do the same for terminally ill kids, and adults.  Don't hesitate to email me if you know someone in any of these situations.  No one should leave this life without great photos to preserve their memory.  We never know what tomorrow holds for us.

Taste of Salt Lake 2010 {charity event}

This year I had the opportunity to photograph an amazing event called Taste of Salt Lake.  This event features gourmet cuisine from the finest restaurants in all of Salt Lake, entertainment, a silent auction, and a live auction.   It's all in support of Cystic Fibrosis research.  It was a fabulous event.  The food....simply amazing.

Utah Family Photographer {More of Super Spence...and his lovely family}

Wow, once I get out of the blogging world, it's hard to drag myself back in.  But I had to share some images from this shoot.  Remember Spencer?   He's just the greatest kid, 8 years old and trying to fight cancer.   You can see his trip to Make a Wish in Salt Lake here.  Or the benefit for him here.
We finally got around to being able to photograph their family.  EVERY time we would schedule Spencer got a fever and had to be hospitalized....really, it was 3 or 4 times.  I just love this amazing family.  Strong, vibrant, loving and hope filled.  Couldn't have spent my time any better.  :)  Love you guys!  You can see more of Spencer and his journey here.

Sweet Jonas Coleman {until we meet again}

If any of you follow my blog, you'll remember this family.  Last night Jonas went home to his Heavenly Father.  Sweet Jonas and his little sister Maggie have  SMA Type I- it's a terminal genetic disease that results in loss of nerves in the spinal cord and weakness of the muscles connected with those nerves. 
I can't tell you the gratitude I feel for having the privilege of photographing their family.  To have taken part in seeing the love that exists between them, and capturing it.  wow.  I had to re-post these touching images of Jonas and his family that we took just a few weeks ago.  My heart goes out to The Colemans.  
You can visit their blog and send your condolences here
If you know someone whose child has a terminal illness, please let them know I am always happy to photograph them free of charge.  I also happen to know many other photographers who would also be willing.  Feel free to pass on this blog and have them contact me!  



I know this little man touched the lives of every person he met. What a blessing.

Salt Lake Utah Photographer {The Stevens Family}

I photographed this lovely family 2 years ago just after Becki, the amazing mom of this brood, was diagnosed with cancer.  I was so happy to hear from them again!!  This time Becki said she'd been cancer free, until just recently.  She's getting ready to undergo treatment all over again, and she fights this disease.  It's a long road.  What a blessing it is that she has the tremendous love and support of her family.  I tell you this so that today you might love a little deeper, enjoy your family a little more, and appreciate the delicate gift of life.  Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers.  They truly are an amazing family!
