Tolman Family

This beautiful family session came to be when Morgan High school’s volley ball team held their annual Pink Night last fall. Their oldest daughter was on the volleyball team with my Morgan so we were heavily involved in this night.

Pink Night is organized by the team to raise money for breast cancer research. I’m not sure how many years they’ve held this event, but it’s for a great cause. Several local businesses donate items or services for a silent auction held during the game. I made a gift basket to go along with a full family session. The Tolman family bid on my session and WON! I was thrilled with the prospect of working with this family.


We tried to do their family session during the winter months so they could get the fluffy snow and pine trees. Celeste wanted something out of the ordinary for their family photos. It was a beautiful year for snow, but we just couldn’t make it work.

I didn’t hear from them for several months so I reached out to Celeste to get them on my schedule. She thought they had missed the deadline to get their photos done. To be honest, I can’t remember what timeline I put on the certificate but I think it was for the whole year. Either way I couldn’t NOT do their session once they had paid for it. And I’m so glad we did!

The family had access to a natural light studio in Ogden, UT and wanted to give that a try. It is spring time and the weather can be fairly unpredictable here in the great state of Utah.

This family was up for pretty much anything, the kids were energetic and we had a great session. I had to tow my daughter, Morgan, along with me because I had injured my right knee the night before. My tendon was killing me and I was having a difficult time walking or just bending that knee, BUT I was not going to reschedule this session!

Thankfully it all worked out and we got some tender pictures for this family. Let me know if you agree and reach out to schedule your next family session.
