One Amazing Family ~ Utah County Family Photography

This is my best friend's family. It was such a privilege to take their photos yesterday. Rachel is an amazing mother of six and you would have been shocked at how easy they were to photograph! I've often said I want to be like Rachel when I grow up, and she and her husband's relaxed, patient attitude during photos confirmed that (I'm always stressed out when our family's pictures are getting taken!).

This is the kind of picture I want of me and all my kids sometime:


This is another of my favorites:


The happy couple:






And some individual ones of the kids:

J Family Photos ~ Utah County Family Photography

This family was so fun to photograph, though a few of the kids weren't too excited about getting their photos taken. My style, though, is to get in, get the photos, and get out, and 45 fairly painless minutes later, plus some time processing the photos in Photoshop, and we have some great treasures.

I think this one is my favorite, because it's almost perfect, but not quite -- don't you love the tongue sticking out?




When I told my husband which family's photos I was taking, he said, "Oh, their girls are so cute!" And they are -- what's more, they know just how to pose!






And their oldest has got a great smile, too!
