D Family - November 2009

Ella receives the award for being my most photographed child (next to my own children of course)! I first photographed her last spring after her parents bid on my services at a charity auction. Her portraits from that session remain some of my very favorites. She is full of spunk and sweetness and energy. Then I had the good fortune to photograph her again at a recent school portrait session I did at her school. Of course she rocked that session as well. And finally her family wanted in on the act so I got to have a session with all three of them. They are such a fun, awesome family. And Ella, well, she just makes me smile.

G Family - Castle Rock Family Photographer

I have a favorite secret spot where I love to photograph families. OK, it isn't really a secret - it is the East Plum Creek Trail here in Castle Rock. But my secret is that I start at the end rather than the beginning. The scenery is gorgeous in this location - you get mountains, foliage, walking paths, and even a bridge if we get far enough into it. There is so much opportunity for that "gotcha!" shot. And the G family was no exception. In fact I probably got a dozen "gotcha!" shots at this session. It would be hard to go wrong with a family as beautiful as this one. And what a surprise when I delivered their final CD and found out they live just a minute away from me, in the exact same house as we have! Meeting wonderful new people like them is a big part of what I love most about my job. Thank you for a wonderful session G family - I hope to see you around the 'hood!

L Family - Castle Pines Family Photographer

Gidget is one of my very closest and dearest friends, so when she asked me to photograph her gorgeous family I jumped at the chance. You may recall I did a session for her earlier this year when her daughter Charleigh Jo turned one. But this time it was the whole family - all five of them! It was a bit of a blustery day but those three kiddos and their two awesome parents definitely brought their A-game. They were such a delight to capture, and since they know me so well, I didn't have to bring anyone out of their shell. Just lots of smiles and even more laughter. I love this family...thank you L Family for allowing me into your family for such a fun morning!

C Family - October 2009

The C family are somewhat new to Colorado, and I was so happy to be able to capture them on such a spot-on perfect Colorado afternoon. I don't do as many afternoon sessions and I do morning, and I'm thinking I might need to remedy that after seeing the beautiful light in these portraits - not to mention, the beautiful family. They were so relaxed and comfortable in front of my lens, and were up for anything I suggested. I love it when that happens! Thank you C family for such a delightful afternoon, and for making my "job" so much fun!
