Bayer Family // Jackson Hole family photographer

   

Terran, Greg & Roxy passed through Jackson on their fall vacation road trip through the national parks and contacted me for a family session on their way through. We had a great time even though it didn't occur to me that OF COURSE Mormon Row was going to be full of scenery and wildlife shooters at 8 am on a sunny morning. Whoops! We headed up towards Shadow Mountain and got this amazing fog with the sun coming through, how cool is that?

Being the child of a  photographer (check out Terran's work here - she's amazing!!!) Roxy was fantastically well behaved and Terran had tons of great advice on getting dogs to pay attention (Treats. The answer is treats) when you're trying to get them to pose for you.

Some favorites (pls disregard the weird watermark - black text doesn't work so well. I was experimenting as I was waiting for my new site to go live) -

I just love the colors and the light in these, and how fabulous is Terran's coat? Majorly jealous.

We managed to make it back over to the barns after most of the scenery photographers had finished up for the morning. Good mountains that day!! :)

Henderson Family / Jackson Hole family photographer

The Henderson family made the trip out to Jackson from Oklahoma for a summer National Park vacation and decided to have some family portraits done while they were out here. We met up bright and early up north of town and had a super fun session. Some favorites -

The kids were super excited about the horses - we spent a good amount of time petting and feeding them.

Megan & Brad / Jackson Hole engagement photography

   

 

 

 

 

 

Last week I headed up north with Megan and Brad and their two fur-babies Rodeo & Dutch to do their engagement photos. Luckily for us the road to Mormon Row has just opened up and we were able to drive right in...the trees are still a little bare and the ground is a bit muddy, but the views can't be beat. :)

Aren't they so cute? Brad works offshore in Alaska and is about to head out for his six weeks 'on' after spending most of the winter in Jackson.

When I first told Brad to give me his serious face, he went full Marine on me and it was terrifying. So we went modified serious for this one.

I got some nice shots of Dutch with the most disgusting bone ever (it included a hoof), but thought that those were best left off the blog. :)
