I was lucky enough to photograph this beautiful family in the midst of COVID-19. Don't worry, we followed social distancing guidelines and I even wore a mask. It was also a treat to pull out my 105mm lens to get some great depth! Though everyone has had their fair share of ups and downs this year (dang 2020!), Aryel and Ryan are no strangers to the hardships life can bring. I know Aryel from high school and thanks to social media, we've been able to keep in touch. She has such a beautiful family with two beautiful children on earth, and one beautiful son up in heaven. I feel incredibly grateful to capture these family photos for her and her family!
Can we also just take a moment to appreciate Aryel's skills on throwing these outfits together?? She's rocking that sundress and everyone else matches so perfectly!! We walked along 24th street in Ogden and found these amazing picture perfect locations! You may recognize one of the buildings as the Old Post Office on 24th and Grant. It was just a beautiful backdrop for these modern-esque family photos (and can we all agree the afternoon lighting was stunning???). We eventually found ourselves on 25th street by the ever so popular, Pig & a Jelly Jar. If you haven't been there, stop what you're doing and go get some brunch...you can thank me later!
