About Denette

A bit about me..

I’m a mom of two homeschooled teen boys; two of my greatest joys in life. I’m also a wife to an incredibly supportive, hard-working husband. We live in Park City, where I work out of my home office/studio.

In addition to our never-ending home projects, our two rescue dogs and our small 38(ish) chicken operation, we love working in our backyard garden. Nothing is quite as delicious or fulfilling as a home cooked meal incorporating eggs and produce that you’ve grown with love. And these certainly come in handy when the last thing you want to do is head to the grocery store after a long day.

Of course, photography is another one of my greatest passions. My forte, if you will, is birth and maternity photos. There’s just something so rewarding about capturing precious moments that are too easily forgotten over time.

As a young mother I didn’t recognize the importance of documenting significant moments in my children’s lives. Of course I have a million photos of our day-to day life, but it’s the milestones I failed to document.

The glow of pregnancy, as if a tiny light had illuminated from within for all the world to see. The birth, the beautiful miracle of a long-awaited baby taking their first breath and the joy of holding them in your arms for the first time. Or, the personalities of these creative little people who bring you more joy than you ever imagined. The window of opportunity is so short and gone in a blink of an eye.

Country Lovely Photography is a custom boutique photography service. My goal is to make sure you not only have an amazing, personalized session but also provide you with heirloom quality prints and products that will last a lifetime. From wall art to albums-CLP has a full range of products to meet all of your needs!

Well, gardens, kids, chickens and photography aside, I also love diving into a good book when I find the time. I’m partial to Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander Series. And, speaking of reading, I’m going to stop talking about myself and let you scroll through the remaining pages of this site. Here you’ll learn about the various photography sessions I offer and find answers to some common questions I receive.

If you have any other questions or want to learn more, don’t hesitate to reach out. I’d love to chat with you!


Denette is a very special person.  She is so kind and so easy to work with.  And her talent is incredible.  We feel so lucky to have met her.  -Erin
