I absolutely ADORE this photo session with Sara + Steve! It's shoots like these that recharge my love for photography and remind me why I am SO into this art! Sara had been following my and Justin's work for quite some time and even attended one of our LYON-SHOP classes. I was super excited when she and her new husband Steve decided to hire us for a "day after" session a few short weeks after they were hitched. Sara explained the location they had in mind and I was smitten by the idea! I'm super excited to show these off, it was a RAD shoot!

just discovered your blog and I've fallen hard over your style. You certainly know how to capture absolute breathtaking photos. Where was this location? Totally understand if you don't want to disclose exactly where, but, I've never seen so many colorful glass bottles on metal rods like this before- are they like that for a purpose? Is this just an antique shop area? I'm sure I sound silly asking- I'm very curious. Would love a fill in. Definitely a new fan of your page! Look forward to browsing and looking over your work!

Just checking on y'all out on the "other" coast. Good too see your great work. We always try to make it all good/fun/relaxed. Your work tells people the same...relaxed and lots of fun; as it should be! From one team to another, keep up the good work and have a ball!

When I joined my family on a little trip to Zion National Park, Kenny & Jill asked if I wouldn't mind shooting some family photos there. I thought it was a GREAT idea, such a rad setting to work with and shoot against, plus Lola is at the most ADORABLE stage right now, I was excited!

brady_002.jpgLOVE these shots of Lola on the open road.
brady_003.jpgMy favorite shot of the day!
brady_004.jpgbrady_005.jpgbrady_006.jpgRemember Jill's maternity photos? It's still one of my favorite maternity sessions to date!
brady_007.jpgbrady_008.jpgbrady_009.jpgbrady_010.jpgbrady_011.jpgbrady_012.jpgbrady_013.jpgKenny runs the most amazing post processing company called Fotofafa. You've heard me drop that name from time to time, Fotofafa does all the post processing of my proofed images and to say that I LOVE this company is an understatement. I'm proud to be an affiliate of theirs because I believe in the product and service that they provide!
brady_014.jpgbrady_015.jpgbrady_016.jpgbrady_017.jpgI can't believe that it's been 17 months since Lola Dee came into our family! She makes us all so happy! PS. I heart her pigtails!:)

I LOVE THESE!! Lola Dee is adorable! I totally agree about this stage - I like to do my family photoshoots when the youngest kid is about 18 months because their little personality comes out, and you can totally see Lola's in these pictures! I am in love with your favorite shot of the day. I almost want to hang it in MY house.
