K Family - Castle Rock Family Photographer

Little man there went to preschool with my little guy.  They were in separate classes but often played together before class and so Jenny and I had a chance to chat, as we moms are likely to do when our little ones are entertaining themselves for a change.  I never mentioned my career, beyond being a full time mama, to her.  But she'd seen my car (I have a small sign on the door) and looked me up.  I was more than happy to hear from her, and to schedule her family's portrait session!  The K family were moving from Colorado to California just a few days after their session, so it was decided that a very "Castle Rock" focused session was in order.  We visited the various unique spots around town and let the little ones play and run around.  We even managed a glimpse of the castle rock in the background of a few of their portraits.  In addition their little miss just turned one so it was even more of a cause for celebration!    The day was hot but the laughter was plentiful.  It made for a perfect afternoon!

I wish you all the best in your newest adventures K family, and thank you even more so Mario for serving your country so faithfully.  Best wishes!

K Family - Highlands Ranch Family Photographer

This was one of those sessions that just utterly hit my heart strings and reminded me how blessed I am to have the job that I have, capturing beautiful, precious moments for families.  I met Debbie several  months ago via a networking group we belong to.  I liked her and her mother in law instantly.  There was a love between those two ladies that was undeniable.  We chatted and got to know each other over the next several months and I could tell there was a depth to Debbie that went beyond her kindness and her generosity.  That became even more clear when I went to photograph her family and more specifically her darling daughter Ashlee.   I shared the morning with Debbie and her husband Andrew, Ashlee, and Andrew's parents.  There was a lot of laughter and smiles and the fresh scent of flowers in the air.  There was also something else about the morning that was intense and heavy but I couldn't put my finger on it.  As we wrapped up the session Debbie thanked me profusely and shared with me how very much Ashlee was an angel in all of their lives.  I left with a heavy heart, but also a sense of hope that I had captured Ashlee in all of her spirit and joy.  

A week or so later I had the honor of sharing Ashlee's slideshow with Debbie, and we both laughed and cried together.  I saw, once again, what an angel Ashlee is in Debbie and Andrew's life, and how much the images mean to them.  Debbie, and her family, are more than just "clients" to me -they have become friends.  It is one of the greatest joys of my job.  But even more so with this special family. 

I thank you for trusting me with your portraits, Kiss family, and with your memories.  Thank you also for sharing the story of your journey with Leighton, and with Ashlee.  He will not be forgotten, as he lives on in his sister's soul.

F Family - Denver Family Photographer

After two weather related reschedules I was finally able to meet up with the F Family for their fabulous stylized session.  I posted their slideshow earlier last month but wanted to get them up here for closer inspection!  We had the best time together during their session, and I feel like I didn't just meet new clients but also made lovely new friends.  I can't wait to do it again next year Lisa and David!
