You’ve all heard about the struggles we’ve had with family pictures in the past, right?

Needless to say, getting a family pic for holiday cards wasn’t exactly at the top of my to do list.  In fact, it wasn’t actually even on my to do list. Open-mouthed smile

So, when my pal Becca called and asked if I was interested in having some pictures done by her friend Daniel Silva, I was hesitant.  But, everyone had a decent haircut, so I agreed.  (Seriously…what are the odds of all six of us having good hair at the same time?  The universe wanted me to do this.  Or something.)

Here’s the concept:  PiCALITY wants to capture REAL memories.

It doesn’t make any sense…why go somewhere you have never been and try to create a false memory? Let’s go take awesome pics where you really do spend time as a family.

And, PiCALITY wants to keep it fast and affordable.

No one wants to spend a crazy amount of money for creating true family memories in photographs. We created an affordable price for photographing ‘For Real Memories’. In a 60-90 mins session we photograph any arrangement of pics. Whatever we can fit in that time with your family is yours. No additional charge for pose, groups, portraits, backdrops and etc. Its simple we take great photos in 45-90 mins and you take all edited pics (45-75 digital photos) on a flash drive.

Becca and Lara both had pictures done in their homes (and you can too…they turned out freaking fantastic!) but that’s not where we spend most of our time together.  We are always always always on the go.

Sometimes it’s lacrosse,



sometimes it’s football,



sometimes it’s basketball,



and sometimes you’re just along for the ride.



Welcome to our life.


Let’s try that again.

Welcome to our life.


It involves a lot of bleachers,



and a lot of crazy,


but it’s our PiCALITY (ba dum bum!).



So here’s the good news:

If you’re a Utah local who is also a procrastinator, you are in luck.

PiCALITY has appointments available that will get you a card worthy pic.  (Free Christmas card design for sessions between now at December 16th, but seriously…don’t wait clear ‘til the 16th.  That’s just asking for an ulcer.)  AND, if you get pictures done THIS WEEK (now thru December 1st), you can save $100 if you mention Crap I’ve Made.


Plus, it’s SUPER easy to schedule (especially if you hate the phone or only like to schedule things whilst you’re not wearing pants).  You can schedule from the PiCALITY Facebook page or on the PiCALITY website.  You can also give Daniel a call if none of the times listed will work for you.  Nice, right?

So…how’s your hair?

Open-mouthed smile

Disclosure:  I was provided with a PiCALITY photo session in exchange for this post.  All opinions are my own.  Daniel went WAY above and beyond and even allowed my kid to call him Bob.  The pictures don’t lie…this was a great experience.
