Family Photo Sessions

Fall is upon us, which means I'm getting calls to book family photo sessions.  I'm putting this post together to give all those kind souls that call me an idea for some locations.  I'm starting up north in  Weber County and working my way down to Salt Lake.  These photos are from the past three years.
  • Ogden Railroad Bridge 

    This is a great spot to get a lot of bang for your buck.  There is the railroad bridge and tracks, a grassy field with trees & an industrial warehouse all in one spot.

  • Ogden's Historic 25th Street & Union Station 

A great spot for urban backgrounds


    • Ogden Botanical Garden

     Beautiful vegetation provides a gorgeous natural backdrop

    • Benches of the Ogden Mountains

    K, I'm kind of cheating on this one because these were all taken at different spots in Ogden and not just one place, but you get the idea.

     *Side note on the picture above:  I was asked to Photoshop the gentleman on the left into the picture.  This is NOT an easy thing to do, and after hours of editing this is what I came up with. 

    • Abandoned gas station in Plain City

    So cool.  'nuff said

    • Kayscreek Parkway in Layton

      Wide grassy fields

  •  Kaysville Botanical Garden

    This location offers bridges, stone walls, gravel paths, a pond & a corrugated steel wall

    • Bird Refuge in West Layton

      Wood plank walkways surrounded by tall reed grass make for really unique photo



    • Lagoon Trail in Farmington

      A tree-surrounded trail ideal for fall color 

    • The Capitol Building

    White marble as far as the eye can see provides a clean background for photos.  This is also a great spot for middle of the day light since there are huge skylights in the rotunda. 

    •   Wheeler Farm

    A variety of small buildings provide a lot of options as well as the beautiful natural surroundings.  Be warned that they do charge a photographer's fee.

    • Gardner Village

    Another eclectic location with a variety of buildings and backdrop options.

    Park Ward Building

    Lots of school stuff in one spot including a pond, bridge, brick walls & unique architecture


    • Client's Choice

    I am totally open to going to any location you choose and in fact, I welcome it!  Here are a few pics from locations of the client's choosing:

    So there you have it.  Hopefully this gives you an idea of my work as far as family portraits go.  Thanks for stopping in!
