3 generations

I have always wanted a professional 3 generation picture done of myself, my mom, and her mom. Several months ago a photographer that we've used (and love) was running a special & I decided that there was no time like the present to get that photo! So, I booked the session & told my mom & grandma that it would be my Mother's Day gift to them - and myself! I was set on wanting to shoot in an orchard with the blossoms...so after needing to reschedule several times (due to unforeseen scheduling conflicts, rain, losing blossoms at one orchard, and them not being in bloom yet in another) we finally made it down an orchard in Santaquin (South Ridge Farms). I was a little nervous when we arrived because it was pouring rain, but after only a couple of minutes it blew over and the weather was perfect for us! We had such an enjoyable session, and Tiffany did such a fabulous job! Check out her blog's post on our session here. And here are a few more shots from the session (I'll post them all at the end of this post individually):

Thanks to Tiffany for the beautiful photos...
...and thanks to my mom & grandma for being the beautiful women that you are. I am so much better of a person for having you in my life. I'm so blessed to have you to emulate as I have begun my journey as a mother myself. I love you.

For my own documentation purposes (I print out my blog annually) and so the vertical photos can be viewed better, here they all are individually. Just click to enlarge...

These will be precious forever Holly. I love how family and memories are so meaningful to you, and how you always want to make sure those memories and feelings are preserved. You made the whole gathering so special. You are a wonderful daughter and grandaughter. I love you so much.
