Amanda Utz Photography » Best Photographer in central Iowa

We recently returned from an amazing family vacation exploring the East Coast. Once we arrived back in Iowa we quickly realized Spring had left us! For my first session back from our trip I got my first taste of Iowa Summer heat and humidity for this year. Despite the heat, this family had a great session. I was very excited they were up for adventuring around Thomas Mitchell Park, it made for a beautiful backdrop. I really struggled narrowing down their images, so you will just have to look at several of my favorites…

These Uptown Girls spent last Saturday morning with me in Downtown Colfax. I loved Isabelle’s red tap costume this year, and could not wait for her to get dance photos taken. When I got her prints back I was so sad, she decided not to smile for the photographer! So I decided to do my own retake to be sure she smiled. We also added her dance friends to the mix so we could get some buddy photo keepsakes!  I am so happy to have some smiles for my frames now…

After all my Mini Sessions I had a Full Session with Tyler & Ethan! We spent the rest of the evening exploring Water Works Park. Their session was full of excitement…from tree climbing, to creepy crawlers, to skipping rocks, to ending the session in the mud. Sorry Mom! It was so much fun capturing these brothers together. It gave me a glimpse into my future with James and Jonathan. I should probably start stocking up on laundry detergent now!

Right after the session with brothers I had a session with these beautiful sisters! It is so hard to believe the last time I took photos of London she was a newborn. Now she is a wonderful big sister and I love seeing her joy for life! Little sister Sloane was my first toddler since I started shooting again. She was on the go and kept me on my toes! I had a hard time narrowing down my favorites…

These brothers are my cousin’s little boys. I had so much fun capturing them together. Carter decided he was ready to be a model and kept striking poses. We also quickly discovered he wasn’t a fan of grass on his toes! Camden is an awesome big brother and did a great job helping with his little brother. Out of all my Spring Mini Sessions these two were the only ones the butterflies kept landing on…can you find the image with the butterfly photobomb?
