B Family - Lubbock Texas Family Photographer

Another super-duper session from my trip to Texas this past fall!  Whitney and I have known each other since middle school (thank you Facebook for helping us find each other again)!  We also went to church camp together every summer for many years - so many good memories from those summers!  I was giddy when Whitney asked me to do her family portraits during my Texas stay, especially since I'd never met her husband or adorable son Jack, and hadn't seen her in years.  We met on  lovely Sunday morning at the botanical gardens of my alma mater - Texas Tech University.  I fell instantly in love with the location as well as Whitney's picture-perfect family.  It was so much fun to catch up with my old friend  and get to capture her with her son and husband.  Thank you B family - let's do it again next time I'm "home!"

K Family - Castle Rock, Colorado Family Photographer

The K family all came together for a family Thanksgiving this year and while everyone was gathered -- including their beautiful matriarch grandmother - they requested a family portrait session to commemorate the gathering.  What a joyous and laughter-filled morning!!  From the youngest little guy to the youngest at heart, it was a true pleasure working with them all.  Thank you K family for welcoming me into your  family for the morning, and hope to see you all again soon!

H Family - Castle Rock Colorado Family Photographer

Cold?? Why yes! Cloudy? For sure (I love overcast sessions)!  Fun?? DEFINITELY!  The H family didn't let a little December chill mess up their fun time.  They played and ran around and enjoyed the morning, as did I.  They even showed me a lovely, hidden spot for future sessions (this time I'm serious, though yes, we did some porch photos as well).  And their two boys totally loved the camera, and that made me happy, happy, happy!  Merry Christmas H family - and thank you for a lovely morning, and for letting me know how pleased you were with your portraits.  That makes me happy, happy, happy, too!

F Family - Castle Rock, Colorado Family Photographer

It truly is a small world after all...

My friend Tracy, from Washington, has a brother who lives in Colorado.  Tracy and her family visit her brother every year for Thanksgiving, and this year was no exception.  Bonus - Tracy's Dad was going to be visiting as well!   She asked me if I'd do some family portraits and of course I said "YES, please!!" I happily obliged and had a great time catching up with Tracy and Eric, and getting to meet her brother's family as well!  Castle Rock is a small town so hopefully I'll get to see them around town :-)

Brittany and Jake - Castle Rock Colorado Photographer

Brittany and Jake met me at a far away, hidden, rustic spot for their natural light mini-session --don't try and find it on a map, it is unfindable!  I jest.  This is Brittany's mom's front porch just a few blocks away from my own house!  I have a new love for photographing clients on front porches.  They are relaxed and at ease and the light is filtered and dreamy, perfect for adding sparkle to eyes and ease to poses.  It also goes to show that you don't need big open fields or colorful gardens to make a portrait session work - you just need love, and these two have that part down to a T!

Pink! Castle Rock Colorado Infant / Newborn Photographer

Oh sweet baby girl... what can I say? It was a delight to photograph sweet little miss E.  Her parents and big brother are so beyond sweet and beautiful, how could she not be as well!  She did not want to sleep - 3 weeks old and she was awake for the entire 2 hour session! But she was so easy to photograph, and so alert - see the one where she's smiling at her papa?!  What an honor to capture such innocence, purity and beauty.  Life, in the beginning.  Perfection.
