Drum roll please...

Are you ready for this?
Because it's kinda a big deal.

I am proud to announce an exciting change here at Ciao Bella...
Please welcome:

As you can see, there has been a name change. While I will always love "Ciao Bella Photography", it was time to take things in a new direction and simplify.

I've been working diligently for the past several months in preparation for this big change. I am thrilled to present my new website...check out to see for yourself! You will find my portfolio, individual blog posts, and other fun goodies. It was truly a labor of love. I am so excited to finally be able to share it with everyone!

Please stay tuned...there will be an amazing giveaway coming in the next week! Trust won't want to miss it!

Utah Family Photographer

What do you get when you mix seven energetic children, a goofy photographer, marshmallows and bubbles?

An amazing photo session filled with tickles, giggles, jumping, and running (with only a few tears). These children were so well-behaved and all in the best moods. Their moms (the kids are all cousins) wanted to get a few shots for the grandparents as a gift, and I couldn't wait to work with them again (I did a session with the oldest three in January 2010).

As you can imagine, I was a little apprehensive at the prospect of trying to get seven children looking and smiling all at once, but it actually went very well! My husband tagged along as my assistant and did a fabulous job making the kids laugh. I love this family and hope to see them in the future when they are all in town again! :)

Ashley and Trevor: Utah Bridal Photographer

My best friend was married to her sweetheart on Friday. It was a lovely day. At one point during the ceremony, I looked over at Trevor and saw the most beautiful emotion in his eyes. There was no doubt in my mind that he loved and adored Ashley, and that he would take care of her forever. They are a special couple. 

Here are a few of their bridal pictures that were taken at the Utah State Capitol and the Bountiful LDS Temple earlier this month. It was a beautiful day!
