Pride & Joy | Utah Child Portrait Photographer

I love my boys. Do they drive me crazy? YES! Do the suck out all of my energy? YES!! Do I look forward to bed time every night? YES!!! Do I also love it when they wake up in the morning? Yes. These three little dudes are my life. I love seeing the world through their eyes. Each one of them has such a unique personality and I love it. I feel truly blessed to be their mother and I hope that I can do my best so these three little dudes will grow up to be amazing wonderful men.

The weather was perfect tonight for a walk up Yellow Fork Canyon in Herriman. It's a small canyon, but a fun one. The light was gorgeous, the colors amazing, and the subjects were the best part of all. I don't ask them to pose. All I said was that I wanted to take some pictures of them and they did the rest. "Mom! Come take my picture." "Mom! Take my picture again." "Mom, let me see." It was a great evening.

The Baxter Family | Utah Family Portrait Photographer

The Baxter family was a fun photo shoot. We went to Temple Quarry at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon. We were hoping for colors, but unfortunately the fall colors weren't in full bloom. However, this place is wonderful without all the color. The little girl was hoping to see a moose the whole time we were shooting, but none appeared. We did get see some mountain goats way up in the distance. Anyway, the light was beautiful and the family super cute.

The Walter Family

I just had to share a few from last nights session. We went up American Fork Canyon to Tibble Fork Reservoir (PACKED with photo shoots!). It was beautiful up there! A little chilly, but the fall colors were out all over. The Walter family won the free family portrait session from earlier this year. The mom, I've known for years. We both grew up in Palmdale, California. Not many people can say that and also not sure they'd want to :) Anyway, her cute family was fun to take pictures of. With a two year old you kind of just have to roll with whatever and know when to quit. I hope you enjoy the pictures!

The McMullins | Utah Family Portrait Photographer

I love the McMullin family. They're such a beautiful family. This photo shoot happened on a super stormy weekend, luckily we only had a few minutes of some light sprinkling. In the mountains you never know what the storm will do, but it's usually not good. Anyway, we got some nice shots before the cute toddler was done.

Foster Family Fotos

Hi foster families and welcome to my blog! Please feel free to take the time to look around and see what my work looks like before you book a time. I want you to know how excited I am to be doing this!!! I've wanted to set this up and get it going for some time now and I'm finally ready. A little background on us, my family and I have three rambunctious boys. Our oldest is almost seven and when he was 3 we decided to do foster care. Our first placement was a beautiful little baby boy, 7 weeks old! We loved him so much, but he had lots of family that loved him too, so he was adopted by his grandparents and we couldn't be happier for them. Our second placement was an 18month old little boy. We were told from the start that it would be a short term placement because he had lots of family that could take him. Well, he's now a big 3 year old and has been legally ours for over a year. You just never know what will happen. A month after we adopted our little 3 year old, our youngest was born. It's been a crazy ride, but we wouldn't trade it for anything the world.

OKAY, so here's what you've been waiting for, the Foster Family Foto Shoot details:

WHEN: September 20th, 2014

WHERE: Murray Park (we'll meet at the white gazebo)

TIME: 5:00pm - 7:00pm (can't do this earlier because there is a farmers market at the park)

WHAT: These are FREE photo sessions for currently licensed foster families and those who've adopted within the last year. Each family will get 2-3 edited pictures sent to your email. These will be larger files, so I will probably send each picture separately. We will do 2 pictures with the whole family, a posed group shot and a fun silly one (you don't have to do this one, it's up to your family). I will also take an individual picture of the foster/adopted child(ren) this is also optional. No individual pictures of other children, sorry.

SIGN-UP: I have a link HERE to a spread sheet with times. HOWEVER, I will take family pictures based on who is there at the time not what you signed up for. The time is basically to show how many slots I have open. There is a WAIT LIST for those who did not get a time slot. Please leave your name and email. If someone can't make it who has already signed up, I will email the next person on the list. If I get a lot of people who are on the WAIT LIST I will more than likely open up another day to do this.

***These images will not be posted anywhere on the web, by myself. If you post them make sure you have approval to do so by the foster child's bio parents. Also, please make sure any credit given is to Tricia Bagley Photography, thank you!!!

The Perkins Family | Utah Portrait Photographer

This was such a fun family session. We met at Wheeler Farm and I haven't taken pictures there for a long time. When we got there it was PACKED with photo sessions, so we headed out on the back trails to the more wooded areas and there was no one over there. The light was beautiful, the mosquitoes were biting, and we had a great time.
