Salt Lake City Utah Family Photographer | 11-on-11 Project July

 (This is the seventh post in an 11-on-11 project I am honored and excited to be participating in this year with a group of talented photographers from around the country: Kelly Sweda (CA), Sara Kaleho (MN), Sanna Lee (MN)Marie Sant (UT)Brooke Schmoe (FL)Brandi Tejeda (CO) and Corey Villicana (CA)  No rules or guidelines other than we post 11 personal pictures on the 11th of each month. To see last months post click HERE)

My girl here turns 4 today.  FOUR!  I can hardly believe it.  I always do a little photoshoot with my kids on their birthdays.  I admit it's more of a gift for myself right now than it is for them, but one day let's hope they thank me.  :)

The day I took these was stormy, windy, rainy and we almost decided not to go.  But thankfully we ventured out and were able to shoot for about 10 minutes before the light was gone.  My goal was to capture her  - her personality, vitality, beauty and love for life.  She is so curious, loving and fun and has been such a blessing in my life.  I feel so lucky to be her mama.

I hope you enjoy a little glimpse into all that is Miss H.

  Same day, different location.  Saw the amazing storm clouds, pulled over on the side of the road and stuck her in the middle of a corn field.  The things we do :)

Thanks so much for looking!  Now please continue the blog circle and visit my sweet friend Kelly Sweda from Kelly Sweda Photography.  Her work is always amazing and I'm sure you will love her as much as I do!
