Park City Family Portraits, by Stephanie Neal Photography

Finally catching up on my blogging, and wanted to share one of my favorite sessions from last fall, when the aspens were at their peak in Deer Valley. I have been photographing this beautiful family since the kids were babies, and each session we try and outdo the last. I think we succeeded!!

The Luke Family, by Stephanie Neal Photography- Great Salt Lake Supermoon

Great Salt Lake Supermoon

This was one of those sessions that just all comes together with a certain amount of planning, and a lot of luck + magic thrown in! I photographed this beautiful family last year at their new home in Park City, and they wanted to mix it up and go for a “different” look this year. After doing some location scouting we settled on a beautiful spot at the Great Salt Lake. If you’re from the area, you probably know the lake is gorgeous at sunset, but also very “pungent” in the winter!! It took a good 45 minutes to adjust to the smell, but it was well worth it to get these amazing images. The inversion (pollution) in the air actually helps create jaw-dropping sunsets. As we were getting ready to leave, we were all surprised to see the biggest, most beautiful moon start to rise over the mountains and reflect off of the lake. It just happened to be the night of the “supermoon,” and helped make this session one I will never forget.

Vintage Cars & Family Fun, by Stephanie Neal Photography, Park City, Utah

This session was way too fun! Combine vintage cars, a gorgeous extended family, and the jaw-dropping scenery of Deer Valley, and this is what you get :) I don’t know if I’ve laughed this hard at a shoot before.

This beautiful little family traveled all the way from Minnesota for their session. We had a last minute spring snow storm the night before, which made everything more fun and scenic!

Violet, 1 year portrait session by Stephanie Neal Photography

Stephanie Neal Photography, Park City Utah Family Child Baby PhotographerThis was my second session with this little family. The first was a maternity session just before Violet was born. They all have such strikingly beautiful eyes…they just jump out at you and make for the most amazing portraits. I love to see the transition from nervous parents-to-be, to capable hands on mom and dad.

Hannah, Senior Portraits in the mountains of Deer Valley, Utah, by Stephanie Neal Photography

This beautiful senior has the most amazing red hair! I knew we should wait for the final stages of fall color, when the yellow aspens are at their peak. It couldn’t have gone better…we quickly moved through several locations, each shot getting better than the last.

Madison, Park City Utah Senior Portraits by Stephanie Neal Photography

I first photographed Madison when she was 13 years old. She wasn’t completely comfortable, but had glimmers of that certain “something” that helps make a good photograph great. Fast forward 4 years and she’s a stunningly beautiful high school senior that was a complete natural in front of the camera.Stephanie Neal Photography Senior Portrait Photographer, Park City, Utah

Audrey and Alexa, adorable 20 month old twins! By Stephanie Neal Photography – Heber, Utah

I’ve always loved twins… I wanted to be one, I wanted to have them, two of my best friends are twins, my husband’s mother was a twin, etc. I’ve just always had a connection to them, and I love photographing them :) These girls kept me on my toes, and their mom and dad were exhausted by the end of the session… but I think they’d agree it was well worth it for these gorgeous memories!Sarah Lutkus watermarked blog
