Bonneville Salt Flats

There is nothing like taking pictures at the Salt Flats here in Utah!  The Bonneville Salt Flats are 90 minutes west of Salt Lake City, but when you get there you will feel like you are in the middle of nowhere.

The Salt Flats are incomparable to that of anything else. That being said, I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a new adventure! If you do go, make sure you bring snacks and PLENTY of water- especially during the summer!

About the Mom

Meet Lydia! Lydia and I met while playing soccer for BYU. She was a junior and I was a freshman. This gal was an amazing, speedy and powerful soccer player! I LOVED playing alongside her! I also love that we have remained friends since college. It is so special getting to watch my friends grow their families.

About the Session

When Lydia asked me to take her maternity session photos, I was thrilled! I loved that she wanted her photos to be taken at the Bonneville Salt Flats. It was a bit of a drive for us, so we decided to make a girls trip out of it! We met up to make the drive together and spent the entire two-hour car ride catching up on all things LIFE. It was time well spent!!

You guys, this session was truly one for the books. Naturally, because she was having a boy, Lydia chose a BEAUTIFUL blue dress. The colors you are about to see in the colors below are unreal. Just look at the OPENNESS of the flats. So clean, simple and no background noise! These things made it extremely easy for all of the attention in the photos to be so perfectly set on Lydia.

Since the session, Lydia has given birth to her little boy named Emmitt, and they are going to call him Mitt. HOW CUTE IS THAT!?

Also, Lydia’s Instagram is amazing. She gives tips and tricks for new moms, and she also gives her honest thoughts on the baby products she uses. If you’re a new momma, be sure to check her out! She is so much FUN!

Hope you enjoy her Salt Flats Session!!

XO
Brooke

Casper’s Wilderness Park Maternity Shoot

Welcoming a new little one in to the world and becoming parents is a remarkable experience. The little baby hiding in that baby bump made it’s debut yesterday and I couldn’t be more excited for Jaime and Ryan!! Congrats you two!!! Jaime was ABSOLUTELY glowing during her maternity shoot. I loved capturing the beauty of her pregnancy, along with Ryan who was right there by her side. Casper’s Wilderness Park proved to be just the right location to have Jaime stand out in her draping floor length black dress. Every once in awhile you get a day like this where nature is the perfect compliment. You can’t beat the sun creating a natural spotlight like it did for Jaime. She looked incredibly beautiful and I know motherhood is going to look just as good on her.

There is nothing like taking your maternity session in San Juan Capistrano, CA! The colors in these pictures are so bright, beautiful and FUN! Enjoy!

San Juan Capistrano Mission Maternity Shoot

Capturing the beauty of a mother to be couldn’t be better than when it includes a backdrop like San Juan Capistrano Mission – baby bump, sequins, and all. Chelsey is a past “Brooke’s bride” and I couldn’t be happier to say that she delivered her cute baby this very week! CONGRATS to you, Chelsey and Kyle!

Chelsey seriously made the whole maternity thing look insanely beautiful and elegant with her gold sequin dress. Kyle was looking quite dapper himself. I’ll tell ya, I love this girl! She is a beauty inside and out. And, considering the fact that people confuse her for my sister (they look crazy alike), she might as well be family! LOL!  My mom and I, and my Charlee girl even went to her baby shower. Take a look at how she makes that baby bump look beautiful!  Congrats again!!
