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!!

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.

Skyler Ordean is a rising star in the snowboarding world, and just an all around cool guy. He's about to graduate from Park City's Winter School, and I had the pleasure of photographing him on a beautiful fall day in the mountains of Deer Valley. He's got great things in his future!

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!

This 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.

This gorgeous family was referred by one of my favorite clients. We did these in early December, right before we got massive amounts of snow. Their house has the most spectacular view of Park City and Deer Valley, and what better way to enjoy it than from the trampoline!!

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.

This beautiful little family couldn't have been sweeter. We almost got rained out, but luckily the clouds cleared and we got some great images!

This is the 3rd summer that I've photographed these beautiful sisters. Each session just gets better and better. Their mom is collecting the prints from each year and is going to make them into a book to give each girl when she's grown. I love when other parents are as passionate about documenting childhoods as I am!!

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.

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!

Her name is Autumn, which was pretty fitting as we were shooting among the beautiful fall colors in the mountains of Park City. There's nothing better than capturing something that they themselves can't see. Her first reaction was, "Do I really look like that??"

I've been photographing this gorgeous family since their first daughter was still in her mama's tummy, and through each stage in between. When they at last got their BOY we were all thrilled that their family was complete!! So happy for all of them :0)

I love this family! I've known their mom long before they were born, and have photographed them every step of the way. They get more beautiful with each year.
