Brie::Senior Session

Brie kicked off our 2016 seniors a week ago. And no kidding, I think it was the first night that was perfect in weeks (no rain, yeah!) Her style is fun, relaxed, and she is a free spirit. All of these equal a beautiful session with an exceptional young lady. I loved that she has a genuine smile and laugh, and was willing to do a few crazy things and go along with my ideas. My goal with each senior is to create a session tailored to them. I enjoy scouting out new locations, and for Brie, we did her last photos in front of a mural. I’ve actually had that location in my back pocket for a few years, and I was waiting for the right person, and Brie was just that person. Thank you Brie for such a fun evening photographing you!

Jenae & Jay::Elopement

A year ago, I put on my hiking boots and climbed Hoosier Pass (elevation 11,539) to photograph Jay and Jenaes elopement. It was incredible. Truly. Nothing I have ever done before in my lifetime of photographing weddings. Jay and Jenae rented a beautiful secluded cabin, got ready separately, and then saw one another for the first time on top of the mountain. It was breathtaking (literally) and I am truly honored I was able to photograph this for them. Happy Anniversary to one the best couples out there.

Berman Family::Maternity Session

The Berman family will soon be 4! I’ve had the chance to get to know this family over the years, and I couldn’t be more excited for them. They selected our ‘Baby’s First Year’ collection which means I get to photograph the newborn session, 6 month and 1 year. Truly a great way to document how fast the first year goes. I love getting to know a family, and this time around Cole and I really hit it off, especially when I taught him my banana song (you too can see this but you have to ask!) I simply cannot wait to get the call to come visit their home for their newborn session soon!

Geoff & Ashley::Engaged

What a delight to photograph Geoff and Ashley. We shot in downtown Denver at some fantastic locations, and I am in love with their photos! Lately,the weather in Colorado has been a tad unpredictable, and on their photo day, it was rainy and a tad chilly (but better than the following day when it snowed on Mothers Day!) but that did not hold us back! And Ashley rocked dresses and sleeveless shirts! In a way, I am thankful, because it meant we created unique images at gorgeous inside locations (and a few outside as well!) Geoff and Ashley, you are the definition of a classy couple, and I appreciate the effort & planning you put into your session. I simply cannot wait for your June wedding!

Scouting Locations with Stella & Oliver

One of the reasons I love my job is the constant change. I enjoying shooting at new locations, therefore I am always looking, finding new secret spots. I want to create unique locations for my clients and simply, bring them the best. Photography means, ‘to paint with light’ and that is a huge part of my job. To create light, to find the right light and to make it glow. I scouted this spot a few days ago and who better to test it on then my own kiddos! We were actually having kind of a tough day, and thats when I said lets go outside. I put a dress on Stella and grabbed a nice shirt for Oliver (which he refused to put on at first) got out the bikes and rode to this spot. Did I have to bribe with them with suckers? Yep. And when we got there it was perfect light. I convinced Oliver to try on his nice shirt and then we started shooting. Stella was all over it, Oliver, not so much in the beginning. Like all photo sessions, we warm up a bit, we play, talk and most important, let the kids be themselves. Then the magic starts to happen…Stella and Oliver hugged one another. Then Oliver picks flowers for me. And Stella takes a moment to smell the flowers. These moments melt my heart. Now, you might be thinking, these are great because they are HER kids. Well, let me tell ya (and other photographers would agree) shooting your own children is tricky. They are still kids, they also act like little stinkers and get away with more. But I am also here to tell you, this is my job and I am always up for a chanllenge and I’m good at it. We play, we have fun, and we capture the moments in photo sessions. Because, I know when I look back at these photos, I will cherish them. They don’t stay little forever.
