Adorable Tulips & Family Utah Photographer

I have had many people ask to see our Tulip pics, so I am sitting at the studio at 11 p.m. and blogging a few.  We did many families at the Tulip Festival during the past few weeks--so don't feel bad if I didn't select yours--too many beautiful ones to choose from.  

This annual event has been very popular for grandmas and mommies who has little ones.  I have to say that my favorite flower has to be the tulips and when I am at Thanksgiving Point, I am amazed at how beautiful they really are.

So, happy days are ahead--many fun spring portraits are planned already.

We would love you all to stop by during the open house this Thursday & Friday from 10 a.m-8 p.m.  We are giving away a ton of prizes!!!!!!!  We are giving away purses, gift certificate, shabby chic frames (yes, the one with polkas dots girls!)  You have to stop in to be eligible for the drawings.  It is also Gardner Village's friends and family sale this weekend, so it should be well worth the trip!

AMAZING Utah Urban Senior Portraits Photographer

Ok-what can I say but AMAZING!!!  Cute little MH's mom came to us to get some funky high school senior pictures of her adorable daughter.  She didn't want "boring" senior pics--and, oh no, this wasn't boring.  She had amazing outfits to choose from with shoes and jewelry to match!  (well, the jewelry did go missing for a minute, thank goodness mom found it).  I can't wait for you  to see what the rest looks like!  

MH you rock the house girlfriend!!!

Utah Baptism Portraits Photographer Photography

What a beautiful day we had on Saturday!!  We spent the day taking pics at Thanksgiving Point's Tulip Festival.  Gorgeous.  Why can't that be my backyard?  Tulips and daffodils everywhere with a million and one gardeners?!  

So, it isn't my backyard, but we loved it.  The families and children were dressed to the nine and the weather cooperated great with us.  I will post here in the next day or so a bunch of the pics that we did.  

But, I had to just post these few today.  Last year we had a sweet little one do her baptism pictures during Tip Toe through the Tulips.  This year, again, we had a sweet little girl.  Mom even bought the dress from one of my favorite children's websites--www.chasing-fireflies.com.   Anyway, these pics are my favorites of the shoot--so timeless.  I love the one with her shoe coming off--it shows the youthfulness of her.

Salt Lake City Utah Bride & Groom

Blow me away!  That is what I have to say about N&J!  They were stunning to say the least!  So, we headed out this weekend to do their bridals and also a prewedding shoot.  The lighting couldn't have been better and they couldn't have been any cuter!  But, those big rain clouds you see in some of the pictures???  Yes, they totally soaked us--but, I have to say--It was worth it!

Springtime is COMING!!! We spotted GREEN GRASS!

Yes, I have to admit that Marc and I were out on a shoot last night and we saw "GREEN GRASS!"  Yes, I about fell over, but I couldn't believe it--got to love green grass in April.  This adorable family from Spanish Fork drove up on a beautiful spring day for the portraits.  They are excited to wear clothes that match the decor for their home and are planning on framing it in a gorgeous chocolate brown and green Sweet Shoppe frame that we carry!  Can't wait to see that!

Hoppy Easter

Every year Highlite Photography has their annual Easter Bunny portraits with live Easter bunnies (thanks to the Burbidges).  The children absolutely love it!  This year we offered two Saturdays of the mini sessions--we completely sold out of them!  Thought I would share a peak of these little guys.... My favorite is the one with the hat covering the little guys eyes!  Oh shoot-how cute is that?

Hoppy Easter!

Highlite Photography NEW STUDIO opens!

We are so excited for our newest studio that opened at Gardner Village in #32!  It is three times bigger than our old store and absolutely more gorgeous than ever!  With tons of wonderful staff members and many hours of painstakingly hard work, we made it!  We have a few finishing touches left-the outside of the building is going to be painted (hopefully next week).  We are going with a pumpkin exterior with espresso shutters.  We also got a bit delayed on our circle framed portraits due to shipping--hoping those go up this week!

Highlite Photography new space will allow us to display more portraits for your viewing.  It will allow a much more inviting studio with room to sit down and enjoy a cold water or diet coke.  We also have a bridal consultation room full of albums and portraits.  Come down and see our adorable frame lines too--from old ceiling tins to polka dots--Mindy has searched the United States for the latest and greatest frames and we have found them!!!!  We are thrilled to have Ellie Collection jewelry in our store whose stones come from the plains of Africa to the jungles of Asia.  Her designs utilize a broad variety of semiprecious stones, mixed metals and other unique pieces including a design she made specifically for Highlite Photography--a sterling silver photo charm necklace!

So, come on down and see what the buzz is all about!  Highlite Photography invites you now!

Sweet Lil' One

Why is it when we do a newborn shoot, our hearts melt!  Maybe it is the momma inside of me--oh gosh, she was cute.  Her little pearls were from great grandma.    I must say that she was nearly perfect through the whole sitting.   I love these sweet little babies.  I guess because when you get peed on by them, it is better than being kicked by a two year old.
