Wrapping up!

December 22, 2009 | Portraits

It has been a whirlwind wrapping up 2009. What a fabulous year it has been. I have had the greatest privilege of working with the most wonderful families & brides & grooms this year. I am so grateful for each and everyone of you. As I am wrapping up 2009, I am finally catching up on a few sessions from last month. I am obviously drawn to black and white right now- maybe it’s the cold weather?

Some people fill their hearts with thankfulness, joy and compassion and live their lives with that guiding them everyday. That is something I strive to do, but I am not sure there is another family that embodies that more than this incredible family. The Ohlins are about to embark on an amazing journey as a family that will take them to the other side of the world. I asked Carolyn to share a little bit about where they are headed and what they are doing. Here are the details. “The ministry we will be working… Read More »

Some people walk into your life and you instantly know they were suppose to be there all along. That is how I feel about this awesome family. Thank you for inviting me to capture the love and warmth you share together.

Family Fun

November 18, 2009 | Portraits

I had the great privilege of shooting Steve’s family photos. What a darling family! Steve also photographed our family that morning…but due to one little 2 year old… things did not go as planned. I will be amazed Steve, if you were able to salvage anything due to your misbehaving clients!! Thanks for putting up with us! So, any of you out there that stress about your children acting poorly during the shoot, trust me, I get it.

This is an amazing call to action being heard all around the world…so photographers out there, grab your camera and get involved. There is a wonderful group of crazy talented photographers here in Fort Collins heeding the call and banding together on December 12th to create portraits for those who usually do not get this privilege. So if you are out there and you are a photographer, make-up artist, hairstylist, cookie maker, great organizer… We need you.

This amazingly adorable family (that I am lucky enough to call dear friends AND clients!) I am so glad that I get to capture all of your changes from year to year. It is amazing to watch you grow as individuals and as a family. I am so lucky to have you in my life. Thank you for the privilege of being welcomed into your moments.

Guitar Hero

I love how personalities shine when you bring favorite toys! Thank you so much for such a fun shoot. We were able to play around in Old Town Fort Collins, hit the train tracks and still jump into the park for some natural Colorado backgrounds! What an awesome family. Check out Suzanne’s fabulous blog The Concierge Mom and jump in on the conversation by leaving comments about your favorite books, toys, recipes, gift ideas… Thanks again for such a fun shoot!

A huge smile

October 22, 2009 | Portraits

How can you not smile when you see these faces? I had a huge smile on my face the whole time while shooting this adorable family! I love when you walk in the door and one kiddo is in tears and the other is hiding behind a chair. Isn’t that “real” life? Of course it is. Yet…by the end of the shoot we were giggling and chasing each other all over the yard- and I was even tackled to the ground by these darling kids. Now that’s what I call a successful shoot! Thank you… Read More »

An afternoon in the park

October 20, 2009 | Portraits

What a glorious change in weather- only in Colorado can it swing 40 degrees from one day to the next. I had a wonderful time running around in the park with these cuties. Thanks for playin’!! A little camera shy at first…but she warmed up! I can’t wait to meet baby #3! I know he/she will be well loved by two wonderful older sisters!

A snowy shoot

Well, the snow had actually stopped but the cold was still lingering! Thank you for braving the elements with me and for sharing your beautiful family with me for the afternoon. As you can see below…I was really taken with the black and whites from this session. Enjoy the beautiful weather while we have it!!
