family pictures

Do you need your family picture taken? I can't speak highly enough of Jon Canlas. He's the best in the state, bar none. Jon shoots 100% film, which really sets his work apart. But seriously, even if his pictures weren't phenomenal, I'd have him shoot your family pictures or wedding just because of who he is. He makes you feel totally comfortable and you will want him to be your best friend by the end of the shoot.

Last November, Jayson attended a workshop taught by Jonathan Canlas. We were so honored and flattered when he asked us to come model for his workshop in Park City in October. We knew I was going to be gigantic, but that just kind of added to the fun. Besides, all of the attendies and Jon made me feel like I was beautiful and not a tank (THANK YOU!).

Here are all of Jon's pictures. The other attendies shot beautiful photos too, but Jon's pictures are the best (duh).















Jayson and I both commented about what a wonderful experience it was to have our pictures taken by Jon. We walked away feeling more love, more commitment, more peace. And here I thought we were just going to walk away with photos.

Call Jon. He's totally worth your money.

That fourth picture of Mae is amazing - her eyes look so bright and beautiful! I always walk away from family pictures feeling stressed out (and wanting to put my kids in time out until they are 21). It amazes me that you could walk away feeling peace and love! :)

LUCKY.
Our last photo shoot (last week) J didn't get the memo about SMILING and being HAPPY (with all of that love & peace)...so we will be sending out pics w/out smiles from the boy.

*sigh*

(AND. I printed them 1 hr at walgreens which was a HUGE mistake)

HOWEVER-back to you.
1. You are a gorgeous pregnant woman!
2. That peace & love you talked about? IT transcends the photo--just looking at your eyes, faces...I can feel it: AWESOME!
3. Mae is a total doll. BEAUTIFUL.

You are SO RIGHT! We LOVE his work! WE LOVE LOVE LOVE that you recommended him to us for our wedding; he took the most amazing pictures- EVERYONE- and I mean EVERYONE LOVES THEM and wants to know who took them and then 2 years ago we had him take our family pics and those were AWESOME TOO!!! He is TOTALLY worth the $$$. We need new family pics with the addition of our last two and I've been thinking of asking him to take them again in the spring. You guys are so so lucky he asked you guys to pose for his workshop. You LOOK FABULOUS HEIDI and MAE is beautiful as always and J, well, is it inappropriate to add that he looks FAB too?!
