The Blog

Today on the blog, I’m giving you the tea on my photography. Hope you enjoy!

And So it Begins

Growing up, my mom was CONSTANTLY taking our picture! I have a HUGE baby book, chock full of baby pictures and you should SEE the number of prints (and double prints) my mom has of my sister and I at her house. Nothing went undocumented (think Christmas pictures, Easter dresses, first day of school pics times 17!) We were dressed up like twins (despite being almost 5 years apart….THANKS, MOM!) and we have pictures upon pictures.

Were they all in focus? Nope! Did they have any sort of composition? Nope again! But honestly, I LOVE how much we can look back on our childhood and know exactly what life was like back then because of the photos my mom took. To me, that’s all that matters!

My First Photography Class

Fast forward through life a couple of years until high school. There were no phones, no social media, but I took photography classes! I not only loved the time we got to go out and take pictures (aka not spending time in a classroom), but I was also CONSTANTLY the girl with a camera on hand or in her bag. The point and shoot disposable cameras did me well.

Travel further down the line and I’m going to Italy for the first time. I buy a really “fancy” point and shoot camera to take beautiful pictures (ha!!).

I think you get the point- my pictures haven’t always been beautiful or high quality, but I have always had a love for photography (truly without it even hitting me!).

But then I got married….and our wedding photos had me like “WOW!!”

I was soaking up all things “photo” and truly wanted to take beautiful pictures like my wedding photographer (turned real-life friend) Carly! She was KILLING it and I picked her brain SO MUCH! She was so sweet and answered all my annoying texts…and then my mom bought a big girl DSLR camera and changed the game….

Or so I thought!

A Little Photography Lesson for You

Newsflash: You can have a high quality camera (totally top of the line) but shooting on auto WILL NOT get you the images you are after. And I found that out really quick! 

Here are some fun before and afters of Brady, my oldest, from when I started to where I am now!

The Great Photography Leap

Like I mentioned above, photography has just always been part of my life growing up, and while I didn’t have my “A-HA!” moment until after college. I’m so grateful I found what I love and what I’m passionate about. The one thing I wish I could go back and tell myself would be this: HAVE PATIENCE with yourself. Stop comparing your beginning to someone’s middle (or what feels like a beautiful and established business). I wanted BEAUTIFUL, heartwarming images RIGHT AWAY and would get so frustrated with myself when I would read blogs or see images online of what I WANTED so badly for my images to be, and would get so frustrated that mine didn’t look like that. I wish I would have tuned out the “trends” and just tried to learn, shoot and edit to what I loved.

Self-Taught Trial & Error

As a self-taught photog, I truly was totally winging it. “Trial and Error” was pretty much the backbone of the beginning of my business. I was SO lucky to have incredible friends that not only asked me to shoot portraits for their family, but paid me (I cringe about it now) to do it. They valued me and my time (and what felt like a lack of talent!). But how grateful I am for the opportunities given to me in the beginning. I didn’t take a SINGLE business class in college. Ha, I just used Turbo Tax when it came to doing my taxes, and I had no idea what “Business Insurance” was. But I was ON FIRE and truly had a hustle attitude. I was DETERMINED to make this new passion turn into a profitable business. I Googled, Youtubed, joined Facebook groups, and shadowed other photographers. I held bags, worked for free, and basically engulfed myself in all things PHOTOGRAPHY!

Why I Love Being a Photographer

I love being a photographer as much today as I did the very first year in my business. While my business looks different now than it did back then (thank heavens), it’s still something I am SO EFFING PROUD OF!!! I built this. I took a passion and turned it into a business. I built something from the ground up. I pushed myself to find answers when I felt stuck. I worked two jobs, while also being a mom. I sacrificed sleep to make sure I was hitting deadlines both for my full-time job and the clients I loved dearly. I have missed out on anniversaries, birthdays and countless date nights/girls night outs…but I wouldn’t change it for the world. My children have seen their mom go after her dreams. My children have seen the sacrifice life calls for sometimes. My children have seen me create something for myself and see (hopefully) all the extras we can give them with the income I bring to the table. While I have so many accomplishments I am proud of, these are the ones that mean the most.

So with that being said….2020 is OUR YEAR! This is the year I bring all my knowledge full circle and help YOU! Maybe you don’t want to start a photo business (that’s totally ok!!) but you want better images of your kids, your nieces or nephews, your dogs, your food for your blog….whatever it is, I want to help!! I want to be the person you DM because you can’t seem to get your settings right or find the answer you are looking for in google. Or maybe you are a visual learner and just need someone to show you or walk you through things…I got you boo boo. I’m here for it and I’m here for YOU!

Today on the blog, I’m sharing some fun, new things I have in the works for this year. Get ready for a GREAT year, friends!

New Year, New Things

Hi gang!! Happy Tuesday, Happy New Year, Happy ALL THE THINGS!
I have had something on my heart for a while (at least 2-3 years…years, people!) So, this is me stepping out of my comfort zone and taking what feels like a scary step and sharing with you some of my goals for this business of mine. This very blog post will be my starting point.

New Life Things

In 2018, I told myself I wanted to do this, and then our life dramatically changed with Blaine (my youngest) being diagnosed in early 2018 with Cerebral Palsy, and “mom life” took over.
If I’m being totally transparent, 2018 rocked my world. Blaine was SO HARD. There were so many days and nights that started and ended in tears. I was in survival mode, both personally and professionally.
2019 I felt like I could finally take a deep breath and I was FIRED UP after reading Girl, Wash Your Face and Girl, Stop Apologizing! by the amazing Rachel Hollis. I was soaking up all things business and personal development and I was DETERMINED to make 2019 my year.
And then guess what? Spoiler Alert: IT WASN’T! I became a full-time caregiver and mother to a “special needs” child. I say special needs because truly Blaine is special and needs more hands-on care than my other two. From the outside view, he looks like a very normal and very active 4-year-old. But between running a full-time business, taking him to doctor appointments, therapy appointments, and trying to give him very special, one-on-one time…..I gave myself an excuse to put this goal aside yet again.

New Work-Life Things

Are you still with me? Did I lose ya yet? I’m getting to my point, I promise! (LONG STORY not so short, haha) I want to share what’s in my heart. I’m a mother. I’m a photographer. I’m a wife. I’m an entrepreneur.
In 2020, I will add EDUCATOR to this list. 
But it’s not what you think…I want to help and educate other MOMS (or dads or grandmas or aunties or sisters or roommates…you get the idea)!
I have always had a passion for photography (I truly wanted to learn how to take beautiful pictures because I had a brand new baby in 2010 and I wanted quality pictures of my little precious!) but now I want to help all the other moms around me to learn how to take that fancy camera off “Auto” and see just how easy it can be to shoot beautiful and high-quality images!
I would say one of the most popular questions I get asked when people hire me, meet me or hear that I am a photographer is, “How did you get started?” OR “Did you always know you wanted to be a photographer?
The answer is so simple. I had NO idea I wanted to be a photographer…I went to college and studied Psychology and played soccer for my university. But really I was mostly just interested in the soccer part. Oops!

How I Became a Photographer in the First Place

But like I mentioned before, we had our first baby in 2010 (one year after we got married…and completely unexpected) and still coming off that wedding picture “high” I KNEW I wanted quality images of my little boy but yet only had a crappy point and shoot camera. Crappy might even be giving that sucker too much credit. I look at those images from it and I still cringe!
Enter: Grandma Kip. She bought a Nikon DSLR and we took shot, after shot, after shot. We both took turns with the camera, and she even let me borrow it the whole summer to practice). I did a whole lot of Googling and Youtubing to learn as much as possible and even found someone in my area at the time who was teaching other moms how to use their camera from her house. I soaked up every single ounce of education and soon enough, friends started asking me to take pictures for them!
I think you can see how things snowballed from there.

Real Talk

But the thing I keep coming back to is this: I’m still a mom who wants images of her kiddos. The good, the bad, the funny and the ugly. And I want that for my friends (pppssstt….that’s YOU!).
Trying something new can feel overwhelming, and that’s hopefully where I can come in and help! I am self-taught…I had to look up so many photography terms to see what the heck they meant, it’s ridiculous! So my goal is to serve you- in a way that makes it easy to understand. And guess what? I even have a FREE DOWNLOAD on its way to get you started.
Now…did your eyes glaze over, thinking “but Brooke, I’m a bride and I take a million pictures on my phone and I don’t have kids.” Don’t worry. I got you too, boo! I will also be sharing some iPhone tips and tricks along the way as well. Besides, I hope you will stick around long enough that when you DO have kids, you will know exactly where to start when you buy yourself a “big girl” camera!
Here’s to a wonderful New Year and fun, NEW things!

Today on the blog, I am sharing my three golden rules to goal setting. If you’re a dreamer like me, I hope you find them just as helpful as I did!

A Look at 2019

2020 is officially HERE and chances are, you’ve already got those 2020 goals piling up in your mind. And maybe, just maybe (if you’re anything like me), you’re taking a good, hard look at the 2019 goals that didn’t get accomplished. Such is LIFE! Am I right or am I right?!

2019 was a hard and beautiful year for me. Looking back on all the things I went through, I learned so much about myself as a businesswoman, mother, and person that I truly value and appreciate as we move into 2020. In fact, one of my largest takeaways for the year was learning how to take a step back and outsource some of my behind the scenes work tasks so that I could truly hone in on showing up and serving my people to the best of my ability. This was, by far, the BEST thing I did for myself this year.

The Three Golden Rules to Goal Setting

  1. When setting BIG goals, make sure you include small, milestone goals within them! For example, if you are a creative and you want to create a product to sell in 2020, break that goal down by writing out what needs to get done and when each task needs to get done by in order to hit your big goal of launching it by said date! Setting small, milestone goals as a measurable means to get one step closer to achieving your big goal will help fuel your fire to really make it happen.
  2. Be SMART about your goals. Have you heard of this before? It’s extremely helpful! Let me break it down for ya: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time Bound. The SMART method is great for taking the goals that have been floating around in your head for what seems like forever and writing them down in ways that are realistically achievable. I don’t know about you, but I am all about working smarter, not harder! So, to the genius that created the SMART method, thank you for being a freaking genius!!
  3. Schedule in time to work toward your goals. Here’s the tea: goals aren’t achieved overnight. They take time, effort and serious commitment. Don’t just assume you are going to get your goals done in your free time. Chances are, if you don’t write it in and make sure it happens, something else will pop up that needs your attention during your “free time”. Schedule it in and make it happen! Dreams don’t work unless YOU do!

Great Goal Resources

While chasing after my goals this year, I ran into some incredible resources along the way…AKA Rachel Hollis! Her two books, Girl, Wash Your Face and Girl, Stop Apologizing, were my bread and butter this year, and you better believe I am re-reading them for 2020!

Something I have decided to do in 2020 is keep a gratitude journal. It’s really easy to get caught up in the chaos of life that you forget to acknowledge the blessings that surround you. I’m totally guilty of this and ready to take charge of ensuring I don’t fall into this same trap come the New Year! Fun fact: I purchased the hard copy AND the digital version of my gratitude journal because I’m not sure which version I will take to more. I’ll be sure to let ya know though, haha!

If so, be sure to check out the 2019 family bucket list my family and I took on this year! Find it here.

Best of luck chasing those goals, friend!! Cheers to a great year!

I am thrilled to share “The Best of Brooke” with you today on the blog! The end of the year is already in sight and I can hardly believe it! Before we step into the start of a new decade, let’s take some time to celebrate the things we achieved within this decade and year, shall we? I’ll kick us off!

The Best of Brooke

You may or may not already know this but in November 2010, I SOLD my engagement ring to buy a camera.

Michael and I had been married for exactly a year when we welcomed our very sweet (and VERY unexpected) little boy, Brady.

My mom came to witness the birth of her first grandchild and you better believe we took a BAJILLION pictures once he arrived (that’s not an exact number…but pretty dang close). Before she came, she purchased a brand new DSLR and my love for beautiful photos met with a desire to have them of our newest addition.

As newlyweds with a newborn and NO extra money to spend, the hubs and I agreed it was the most logical thing to do in order for me to have my dream camera!

Once I got the camera in my hands, there was no looking back. And that is how Brooke Bakken Photography came to be!

A Special Thank You

The other day, I went to see what my top nine Instagram posts were for 2019. I was surprised to find out my top posts were not related to my work but instead who I am as a person- whether it’s business-related, momma related or a very realistic glimpse into my personal life. Because let’s be honest, this world needs more #realtalk and I’m more than happy to help fill the gap!

I am so grateful for each of you! To be able to have the opportunity to show up and share my heart’s passion with you all is a truly invaluable gift.

To all of my wonderful clients who I have had the privilege of serving from the very beginning of my business to now, Brooke Bakken Photography exists especially because of you! Thank you for allowing me to capture the moments that matter for you and your families.

2019 has been a beautiful and hard year. My greatest accomplishment from this year would have to be learning how to know my limit and when to ask for help. This year, I took the leap and outsourced some of my work to my AMAZING virtual assistant, Elle, and I am SO glad I did!! I am a major people pleaser and rarely say no in fear of disappointing or letting someone down. Allowing someone into my business so that I could grow it and let it thrive at the same time is 110% what I am most proud of!! In addition, having a cover issue of Utah Valley Bride Magazine for 2019 was THE perfect way to cap off the decade and such a fun way to look back at where I started compared to where I am at now!

I’ll be sharing my 2020 goals later this week, but in the meantime here are my “The Best of Brooke” blog posts of the year!! Enjoy! And Happy almost New Year!!

Today on the blog, I am sharing Brighton and Shaden’s romantic first look session in the snowy winter wonderland of Jordan Pines, Utah. In addition, I am sharing three reasons you should consider while deciding whether or not to do a first look! Whether you are an LDS bride caught up in the pros and cons of doing a formal session before your temple wedding or a bride debating whether or not to do a first look on your big day, I’m confident today’s blog will give you some key takeaways to help you make your decision!

Three Reasons to Do a First Look

  1. It takes the pressure off! So many things go into planning a wedding. Thus, it’s easy to lose yourself in the stress of it all. Doing a first look with your significant is a special way to be reminded of the bigger picture at hand. Who you are marrying is much more important than the wedding you have planned. Celebrating this as just the two of you before the rest of your loved ones join you is one of those moments you will remember forever. I guarantee it.
  2. Two words: alone time. Another benefit of doing a first look is the private, intimate space it creates. Your first look involves three people: you, your significant other and your photographer. Meaning, you can kiss and embrace without all the eyes on you. In addition, a first look is often the only alone time couples get on their big day. Take advantage of the privacy and enjoy those tender and sweet moments with one another!
  3. It makes your wedding experience last a little longer. No matter what, your wedding day is going to go by in a flash. If you want to make it last a little longer, a first look session will give you that extra time together. Besides, who wouldn’t want more time in their dress?!

Today’s bridal session is brought to you by the beautiful scenery of the Timpanogos Reservoir here in Utah!

Timpanogos Reservoir

Fun fact: Mount Timpanogos, also known as Timp, is the second-highest mountain in Utah’s Wasatch Range. If you live in or have ever visited Utah, chances are you are very familiar with the Timpanogos Reservoir. It not only offers hikers great trail options, but it also offers photographers a pleasantly stunning view to shoot with! 

About the Timpanogos Reservoir Bridal Session

If I could pick one word to sum up Ashton and Skyler’s bridal session at the Timpanogos Reservoir, it would be COLOR! The colors that joined us for this shoot complemented one another so dang well. Take one look at their pictures and you will see what I mean; they are bursting with one rich color after the next. I mean, just look at that bouquet! And don’t forget the earthy greens and the dreamy blues. Would you believe me if I told you my eyes couldn’t get enough?!

Grab a cup of coffee, snuggle up and enjoy this romantic and earthy session!

Today on the blog, I am sharing a special styled shoot I recently did. This shoot was special because I got to work with some of my all-time favorite vendors and the shoot itself was unlike anything I’ve ever done!

Winter Styled Shoot Vendors

When I was shooting the dresses for the 2020 editorial for Utah Valley Bride, a particular dress that didn’t make the cut really caught my eye. Even with three photographers, there was not enough time in the day to capture all the beautiful dresses the bridal boutiques sent for the shoot! That being said, I reached out to The Bridal Closet to see if they would let me set up a styled shoot with the dress that I loved so much. The girls that work there are simply amazing and were all for me doing this- yay!

I scheduled some time in the studio (it’s currently winter in Utah, so inside it was!) and contacted one of my favorite models, Elizabeth, who I worked with for the UVB dress editorial in 2019. She has beautiful red hair and is just so easy to work with! I also knew she fit into Maggie Sottero gowns like a glove, which came in handy for the shoot! She, too, was all for modeling for the shoot.

The next person I reached out was the florist, Mandy from the Potted Pansy. She and I don’t get to work together very often because her brides have a different aesthetic from what I typically shoot. That being said, I am OBSESSED with her work and knew I wanted to do a little bit something different for the shoot anyway. It should come as no surprise when I tell you I LOVED what she created after sharing my vision with her. The colors, the textures, literally ALL of it. It not only perfectly complemented the wedding dress, but also Elisabeth’s skin tone and hair.

My friend Katie from KL Artistry always does amazing hair and makeup. It had also been a while since I had seen her, so she was my go-to gal for the shoot.

Winter Styled Shoot Details

My favorite studio is up in Draper, Utah. It has SO much personality and character to it. However, the afternoon light that is shown in the photos I am sharing today has a ton of sun on the wall. It’s not your average clean, evenly lit background, but I knew this going into it. The truth is, I wanted to do something different outside of my typical bright and airy approach. Thus, I decided to shoot at this time.

I loved working with Elisabeth because I didn’t really have to pose her. I placed her based on the lighting and shadows and let her take care of the rest. She was a true and total natural and gave me one less thing to worry about while I focused on the technical side of things during the shoot.

I am SO in love with how these images came out. They’re not your typical Brooke Bakken Photography images BUT I AM HERE FOR IT!!! In 2020, I am going to challenge myself to get out of the box and work on my artistic poise with each of my sessions. Truth is, I have played it safe in my career- giving clients exactly what they want. But I also know that different is good, so while I am still going to give my amazing clients exactly what they want, I am also going to take a few minutes of each session to do something different and out of the box. And I can’t wait to see what comes from it.

I hope you enjoy these pictures!

Today on the blog, I am sharing my best dress shopping tips to help ensure you have a memorable dress shopping experience!

Dress Shopping 101

Dress shopping can be really stressful, especially if you go into it not knowing what to expect. That being said, the best way to enjoy finding the right dress for you is by coming prepared!

“How can I be as prepared as possible, Brooke?” Ah, I am SO glad you asked!

Dress Shopping Tips

  1. Make an appointment. Make a list of the bridal boutiques you would like to visit and then call to book an appointment. This will ensure you have a bridal stylist despite the crowd, and it will make your experience all the more enjoyable.
  2. Know your measurements. Knowing your jean size is helpful when it comes to dresses. In addition, make note that wedding dress sizes are weird and hardly ever “true to size”. No need to get worked up over this, though.  A solid bridal stylist will be able to help you find the perfect fit!
  3. Have an open mind. Sometimes, the dream dress we have in mind does not look like what we think it will once we try it on. Don’t let this get you down, though! No two dresses are alike and there are SO many beautiful and unqiue dress styles to choose from. Chances are, the one you end up in will be a thousand times better than what you envisioned anyway!
  4. Bring no more than three people with you to your appointment. Less is more when it comes to bringing people with you to your bridal appointments- trust me.
  5. Do your hair and makeup. This will help you envision your big day all the more while trying on dresses!
  6. Don’t force it. It is totally okay to sleep on a big decision like that of a wedding dress overnight. Take a deep breath, sleep well and see how you are feeling the next morning.
  7. Wear nude/white undergarments and bring a strapless bra. ‘Nuff said.
  8. Take lots of pictures. If you are undecided and choose to sleep on it overnight, taking pictures will help refresh your memory when it comes to making the big decision.
  9.  Try the veil. Veils know exactly how to complete the look of being a bride. Even if you don’t think you are going to wear one, I encourage you to try one on at least once. Be warned, though: finding the perfect veil with the perfect dress will stir up the waterworks!
  10. Stick to your budget. This is so important, friend. When you buy a dress, you are most likely also going to need alterations, a veil or hairpiece, shoes, bridal jewelry, etc. etc.  Make sure your stylist knows what your budget is so that the dress you fall in love with is one you can actually afford!

Just a heads up, today’s post is AWESOME! Keep reading to grab the tea on the details behind Utah Valley Bride’s 2019 dress spread! I’ll preface with this: this event was what all our wedding dress dreams are made of!

Wedding Dress Dreams

I recently had the privilege of shooting the 2020 dress spread for Utah Valley Bride. This is my third time working alongside the UVB team and I’ve got to say, each year just gets better and better- specifically with dress spreads. If I told you I shot 51 dresses in 6 hours, would you believe me? It’s true, I swear! Dress spread shoots are intense, but SO much fun. It is a blast getting to see all the different styles of dresses and watching all the moving parts come together for one final piece. It also reminds me of the truth that there really is a dress out there for everyone- every silhouette, every style, every unique dress dream. Whether you’re going for a boho look or you want a classic ball gown, it’s all out there, sis!

That being said, today we are celebrating the coming of the New Year with the beautiful dresses that were featured in the UVB 2019 issue.  Enjoy!!
