Bruderer Family: Saltair Pavilion & Salt Flats

Nov 9, 2012  |  Posted by: Megan Stay

This session is of my best friend from college, Britta and her husband Scott and their two boys, Ben and Cole. She and I went through the photography program together at Brigham Young University. six years and several states later, we get to see each other much less. I cherish every visit and love to photograph her family whenever I can.

Britta really wanted something casual that showed off their personalities. We went out to the Saltair Pavilion. It sits on the edge of the Great Salt Lake and used to be a prime time location for a hub for recreation in the late 1800s. Now the lake has receded and it hosts concerts and other events. Because of the great location of the building we were able to let the boys run and play and explore.

I find the best way to get photos of kids is the let them have some freedom and play games with me and my camera. No one likes to be bossed around, especially children. We had a great time together, frolicking in the salty earth and the reeds.

Sure, it’s a little smelly out there, but isn’t it worth it?

Love you Beastie and crew!
