William Robert - A Birth Story

I had never gone into labor on my own with our previous three babies. In fact Jaxton, our oldest, was a week overdue before I was finally induced. So when my doctor offered to induce me anytime after 39 weeks we quickly decided on a date. It makes life easier knowing you already have everything planned out. Our kids had somewhere to go, our hospital bags were packed and we felt “mostly” prepared.

We went to bed on Wednesday, June 5th knowing we would need to arrive at the hospital early the next morning, around 6:30. We were planning on dropping our kids off at Ryan’s parent’s house on the way. It was an unrestful night of anticipation.

At 2:12 I woke up to my water breaking. I jumped out of bed faster than I thought possible at 39 weeks. As Ryan sat up, startled from my abrupt exit, I told him “I think my water just broke!” We both froze for about 10 seconds until Ryan said, “I guess this means we are going to the hospital now.”

At this point I hadn’t had any strong contractions so I took a quick shower and ate a fast breakfast. Then we woke our tired kids and loaded them into the car. I still had only been feeling mild contractions. We called Ryan’s mom and let her know we were on our way. As we were driving my contraction quickly became more and more painful and about four minutes apart. So we called Ryan’s mom again and asked her to meet us at the hospital.

We were admitted and into a room by 3:20. Luckily in time to get an epidural! Things progressed quickly and after pushing through three contractions little William Robert joined our family at 5:05 am. We loved all 7 lbs 3 oz and 18 inches of him!

Will, thank you for joining our family! Happy due date little man! We love you!

Downtown Provo Wedding - Victoria + Bridger

You’ve heard of high school sweethearts, but how often have you heard of JUNIOR high school sweethearts?  Victoria and Bridger’s love story could have come straight out of a movie.  The type of movie you settle in to watch, not only for a good smile and a happy feeling, but also the type of movie you know you will shed a few tears during.  Happy tears of course.

We loved getting to know Nicole! From the moment she stepped out of her car we knew we were going to have a fun time. She was easy going and laughed easily. For graduating seniors there are an endless amount of options for their future. Their entire lives are ahead of them and they can go anywhere and do anything. We love asking about our senior’s future plans.

Utah County Country Farms Family Session - The Ellsworths

I grew up in the country and loved everything about it! I loved the wide open spaces, the rolling fields of farm land, less traffic, friendly people, the list could go on. Ryan and I talk about moving further out into the country eventually and how much we would enjoy that. So when the Ellsworth’s said they would like to do their family photos in the country we loved the idea!
