When Crystal first contacted me about taking photos of her young family of 6 I was blown away to learn she had researched more than 100 photographers before deciding on me! I was seriously flattered, but also - that was a lot of pressure! She had a very specific vision in mind for the setting of her family photos - she wanted golden ground or grass with green trees in the background. After a lot of brainstorming, we came up with Tibble Fork Reservoir in American Fork Canyon. Most of the year, the meadow above the reservoir is green, but by August in a dry year, it's dry and yellow, and with the evergreens in the background, it was exactly what she wanted! It looked so nice with the outfits she picked out - green, blue, pink, and white. I loved getting to see each of her beautiful kiddo's personalities come out and we also snuck in some fun pictures of Crystal with 30 balloons for her 30th birthday later this month - this photoshoot was a gift to herself. Happy birthday, Crystal! I loved meeting you all!
