Thank you to Victoria for these wonderful portraits- we love them!

Jer showed me this spot along his bike ride up West Mountain and around Utah Lake, called Lincoln Point. The pretty fall leaves have all since died and blown away, but he still managed to find a lovely background for family pictures.

In the workforce this was bonuses & rewards season. Now raising kids full time, my “Bonus and Rewards” time is Family Photos—something I can look at and know I’ve done a good job; collect the blessings of their giggles, hugs, and time with me because they think I’m “the best”. They remind me I am doing my best, and it matters to them. Every year gets better. This family in love is my work and glory, and I wish for this joy for everyone! Sending Love to all of you! Thank you again for the beautiful photos, Victoria ❤️

Love, Kat
