Photographers are Grandmas, Too | Glowy Backyard Maternity Session

I love being a photographer, and I especially love taking photos of my own children… and soon, our first grandchild! Our son Ky and daughter-in-law Hannah are so awesome and will be such wonderful parents. Only four weeks left for Baby Ryker’s arrival!!!!! We are all so excited!


Hello, and welcome to the blog! I’m Deniane (pronounced Denny-Ann) Kartchner. I’m a lifestyle portrait, event, and commercial photographer based in northern Utah – I capture milestones for families and individuals and help organizations and entrepreneurs showcase what they do!

Follow along with me and enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at the projects I’m involved in!

Ky & Hannah, our son and daughter-in-law. I remember when they were first dating, they jokingly said their “couple name” was Kyannah. Would they, will they, name a little girl this name? I guess we won’t know for awhile, since they are having a boy, and his name is … Ryker.
