FAMILIES

Family Legacy Session in Eden, Utah

November 25th, 2020

In spite of the freezing temperatures, this session was so fun and full of warmth and joy. I have said it before, and I will say it again, I LOVE family legacy sessions! I love seeing the differences and similarities between generations and I love to see a large family come together even though it is hectic and sometimes seems impossible. 

The Peterson Family is primarily made up of Californians. Which means that these Eden temperatures were unbearable to them! But they were troopers! Having to tell teenage boys to shimmy to get warm and not look cold for the pictures is always a highlight of mine. 

A rule of mine is that I will ALWAYS capture a smile on every child's face that I photograph. I have so far succeeded with every session and I hope to continue this winning streak in all future sessions.

The youngest granddaughter was proving to be a challenge to my rule of smiling. Ha! I love a challenge. I also know that being cold and surrounded by family trying to get you to smile to a stranger is difficult, even as a teenager and adult. Luckily, we were able to get her into a warm environment at the end of the session. She dressed up in her well-worn unicorn dress and unicorn headband and smiled, twirled, and showed me all of her cool tricks. It was such a great ending to a great session. I felt as though I was taking pictures of my little Scarlet. :)

Peterson family, you are AWESOME! Thank you for letting me capture this moment of time for you! You were all so willing, kind, and a joy to work with!
