Jensen Cowboys

Seven years ago, someone had the idea to make all the males in our family dress up like cowboys.  My mom has a “girls room” in her house. Its has photos of all the females in our house when they were around one or two years old.  I think she felt like the men were getting left out (I am certain they could have cared less.) She has a room downstairs that she is going to decorate in “western” decor.  It still hasn’t come to full fruition.  But once we have an idea in our family, no one can rest until we get it done.  So the original photo from seven years ago had all the males in our family.  Since then, four male grandchildren were born into the family. So for a Christmas present to my mother this year, I took our family and my little brother’s family in cowboy gear.  We ARE from Idaho, and I think everyone has ridden a horse a few times in their lives… but I don’t think anyone is comfortable thinking they are anything close to a cowboy. Funny little project.



Shay & Preston Engagements :: Tooele Salt Lake City Utah Photographer

Oh I love these photos! These two are so cute together. They laughed and played at the park for 3 hours straight!  We took these at Liberty Park in downtown Salt Lake City. I’ve been there many, many times recreationally. I hadn’t ever thought to do photos there till I was looking for trees that still had leaves clinging.  It ended up being such a great location.

Shay is one of my favorite people in the world. I want my daughter to grow up to be just like her. She is responsible, directed, smart, beautiful, down to earth, friendly, kind, sweet…perfect.  Everyone that knows her is lucky to have her in their lives.  I’m sure Preston is good enough for her… but those are some big shoes to fill! Congrats you two!!


Sydney Senior Photos :: Tooele Salt Lake City Utah Senior Photographer

Congrats Sydney!  She’s a graduating senior and already has it all figured out. She’s a CNA and headed to nursing college. Impressive girl!  I feel like I’m still figuring my life out!  We took these out at the Great Salt Lake with the gorgeous phragmites and salt beaches. Sydney had that rare ability to look towards the sun without squinting or tearing up. That was SO FUN for me!  I took full advantage and we look alot of direct light shots.  I am all about backlighting, but it was so fun to shoot full sun on her face.  She is such a beautiful girl and was so easy going. Thanks Sydney!


Shannon Maternity :: Tooele Salt Lake City Utah Photographer

I love this beautiful woman so much! We were college roommates for a year and 15 years later it feels like we always pick up where we left off.  I took her first maternity photos and she looks just as beautiful the second time around. I think I had gained 70 pounds with my first baby and only lost like 20 of it.  We took these at the Great Salt Lake.  It was a perfect day, beautiful woman, and pretty light.  Pregnant woman are so angelic!

Stephanie & Darrin Engagement :: Tooele Salt Lake City Utah Engagement Photographer

Oh these two are so cute together. Like I can just envision them as 80 years old and still in love and laughing at each other. My niece, Stephanie is one of my favorite people in the world. She has this spunky, fun personality in a little body. And Darrin just seems to be her perfect fit. And both have the best laughs ever! I am so happy for these two!!


Jensen Family Fall Portraits :: Tooele Salt Lake City Utah Family Photographer

These are actually from fall 2016. This is my little bro’s family who I get to photograph often.  I didn’t make it up the canyon this year to take any fall photos, but this is such a gorgeous location.
