family portraits

meet russell + Ingrid

We're a husband and wife photography duo living in St. George, Utah. Our boutique studio was born out of a desire to build a creative life together, one with storytelling at its heart. We believe that families are what make you strong, and there's no better way to honor your family's story than through documenting how it grows year after year.

Fun is at the center of our approach, and there will be much giggling. We capture honest family moments and turn them into beautiful wall art. As 'The Doctor' once said, "We're all stories in the end, just make it a good one."

Russell grew up in Santa Clara and was a band nerd at Snow Canyon High. Ingrid grew up in Maine, freezing-cold land of snow and lobsters.

As a news photographer, Russell learned a lot about people. An especially poignant lesson: don't call carnival workers "carneys".

Russell's favorite holiday is Thanksgiving and he heaps on the cranberry sauce. (But NOT from a can.) Ingrid eats cranberry sauce from a can.

Ingrid is a published author who’s learned that daydreaming can be turned into a job. Every November, she writes 50,000 words for National Novel Writing Month.

Let's Plan
your portrait

The first step in our photography process is a chat about your vision for the artwork we're going to create for your home. We'll talk about the rooms you want to showcase your artwork in, then together design your session so the look and color palette of your portrait fits your personal style and looks at home in your home.

Your Session

Fun is our mantra when it comes to family portraits. We'll meet at the great location that we chose in our consult, and the actual session is informal and laid back. We encourage kids to be silly and parents to relax. We've got you covered as we capture both posed and candid moments.

Your big Premiere

A few short weeks after your session, we invite you to our home studio for your family portrait premiere! We'll show all the hand-edited images from our session and you can re-live all the fun. Together, we'll select the images you want to show off in your home as finished artwork.

let's make art

We firmly believe in the importance of preserving and sharing the images we've created for your family. The best way to do this is with custom artwork displayed in your home. During your in-studio premiere, we'll help you select images for framed art, canvas wraps, or family albums. Gift prints and holiday cards are also available. Additionally, we offer collections of toned files for you to archive and share.

we'LL hang your art

We're full-service ... from first consultation to finished art on your walls. If you live in Southern Utah, this means we'll personally deliver your artwork to your home. And that's not all ... we'll also mount it on the wall for you. Then all that's left is for you to enjoy it!

ready, set, go!
