Hello there! I am so excited to get to know you! I am sure you are just dying to know all about me, so I will help you with that. My name is Jaelyn Lovell. I am 27 years old. I grew up in Cedar City, but live in Utah County now. Besides my photography business, Complexions Photography, I am a wife to a super sexy man, who happens to be my best friend and my world. But, even better than all of that: he has given me 3 beautiful daughters and together we are a family. My girls make my world turn, and… turn my world upside down! They are beautiful, rambunctious, unique, and loving. I LOVE that photo of my family (above), because it may not seem “perfect” to you, but, my goodness, it is! It captures my life as a mom, right now. My oldest daughter (who is 5) is always happily in her own little world. My middle daughter (3), is oh so cute and oh so mischievous. You see that look on her face? Yeah….that is the face I see often, which is a cue that she is doing something she shouldn’t or thinking about doing something she shouldn’t. And the baby. Oh the baby. She is so full of life. She is not even 1 ½, but she thinks she runs the roost. Which, honestly, she does most of the time. But aside from all the mommy and wife and photography stuff, I love to create things. Do things. Have projects. I love to try new makeup and I change my hair often. I love to be outside and I love the smell of rain. I love music and couldn’t live without it. I love to be around people and I love to laugh. And that last sentence is what got me into photography.
When my oldest daughter was a baby, I took photos ALL the time with a little point and shoot. But, I wanted more. I wanted the pictures to be art. I wanted the photo to be something that I could look at and remember what I was feeling at that exact moment. So, I borrowed my brother’s fancy camera and started to teach myself. Pretty soon, I realized I LOVED everything about it! With a camera, I can capture a split second. A split second! I can capture these memories for others and make that split second no longer just a memory, but an image that is placed on their wall for them to see every day! And I LOVE THAT!! I love capturing who people really are, at whatever stage in life that may be. I love them to be rich and real and full of feeling. I think that every family should have current (and past) photos on their walls. It makes a home really feel like home. And that’s what home is really about: Family! So come and get those family photos taken and put them up on your walls! Your kids (and you) will cherish them!
Now, I understand how crazy life can get, especially in the fall. You have work, school, and kids and it’s almost Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then CHRISTMAS! You have every intention of getting family photos done. But, for one reason or another it may not happen and before you know it… Christmas is here and you don’t have a photo to put with your Christmas cards (or on your walls), so you just skip it. Or send out a letter instead.
To help you out this year, I am be doing a ‘TIS THE SEASON GIVEAWAY’ on my blog! I have partnered with some awesome companies to make this giveaway perfect! I will be giving away a FREE FAMILY SESSION, a 16×20 print, and 30-40 edited photos with the print authorization! But, that’s not it! CK Designs will be giving away a 16×20 whimsical frame to put your beautiful print in! This frame is to DIE for! AND…there’s more! The Modern Polkadot is letting you pick a Christmas card design from her collection to send out! You will also receive 25 printed and they even come with envelopes!! And, since I know it can be hard to buy accessories for everyone, we have Owliehoot Couture and Glitz by Lyndi to help you out! Owliehoot Couture will be making you up to five, yes FIVE, adorable headbands to jazz up your little girls’ hair (if you have girls), and your own (assuming that Mom is reading this)! And, we all know that every woman loves jewelry, so we have that covered too! Glitz by Lyndi is donating TWO beautiful hand-made necklaces and earring sets! Let’s get everyone started!
