America's Next Top Model

I mentioned via Facebook the other day that I regretted not having newborn photos taken of Aspen. It was just not something I could have scheduled because of the way I was feeling (i.e. CRAZY). In hindsight though, I wish I would have bit the bullet and had them done. I wish I had some nice photos of Aspen when she was squishy-faced and sleepy.

The day I posted that, I was contacted by Linsey, who is actually my old roommate's sister. She kindly offered to do a photo shoot for Aspen at a killer deal, so I took her up on it! All I had to do was head down to Bountiful for the 2-hour shoot.


Aspen had her first shots taken at the Bountiful Temple, where Kev and I were sealed. I never thought I'd breastfeed my baby on the Temple grounds, but when those "I'm HUNGRY" cries start, one must oblige. Aspen was stellar for the shoot and I was so impressed with her demeanor. I know she's generally a happy baby, but it's quite another thing to be a happy baby outside in the Fall weather after Mama changes your diaper on the ground.

After about an hour at the Temple, Linsey and I took Aspen downtown to the Tabernacle off of Main Street. There were a lot of great textures and background options that I loved. It was such a pleasure to work with Lins because it's obvious she loves what she's doing, and she loves babies. I enjoyed spending the time with her and appreciated her sweet remarks about Aspen being cute or doing so well. Lins was also very open to any ideas I had for a photo and even let me sneak into a couple of them at the end.

It was a beautiful, perfect Autumn day with a wonderful photographer and I'm so grateful we had the opportunity to capture some of Aspen's adorable three-monthish-ness. If you need any photos taken (especially with the Holidays coming) please contact Linsey. You will love her work!
