Big Cottonwood Canyon Family Session | Utah Family Photographer | Utah Canyon Family Photographer

We shot these winter family photos up near Jordan Pines in Big Cottonwood Canyon. Although it was cold, the snowy weather was perfect and the sun shined through the trees. It was such a beautiful day! We saw lots of sledders and people snowshoeing, and they all commented on how cute this family is (I know!).

I first shot with the Hass family about 3 years ago when they only had their oldest child, Maverick. We’ve done 4 (or more?) sessions, in various seasons, since! It’s always such a treat to see them and take their photos. You can always see light through their faces! Throughout this cold session, they were troopers and the kids would get all bundled up between shots and had a fun time pushing their wagon up and down the snowy slopes. This is a great way to keep kids entertained during family photos.

I loved the outfits they chose for their winter family photos: creamy colors with some contrast always looks so stunning with the snow!

Enjoy this beautiful snowy family session! My favorite thing about being a family photographer is documenting the precious relationships that families share.

Their new baby is so squishy and cute! I am obsessed.
Again, obsessed with this cute baby in the snow!
Goldie (the older girl) is such a firecracker! Her personality is adorable.
In our past shoots, I’ve had to sneak photos of Goldie so she wouldn’t get mad, but this time she was so excited to be in pictures and had the sweetest disposition.
The snowy trees in Big Cottonwood made the perfect backdrop for these family photos
Cuddles between poses. “In between” shots are always some of my favorite photos to take! They show how the family really is and capture so much joy
The sunshine peaking in behind them gets me every time, especially in winter family photos
Mav was so cute during the individual photos we took. He was so excited to play in the snow.
About half way through the kids all wanted to stay bundled up in the wagon. I couldn’t pass up taking this sweet photo of Goldie sucking her thumb.
Shalee and Jaden are the cutest parents in all the land! I love them.

I would love to take your family photos! Contact me today, or follow along on Instagram!
